I hope you are stunned and shocked by your postive beta. If not, I am so so sorry. I just joined but I see how you have been an inspiration. I understand you need to wean away from the boards. But, I also hope in time with a new perspective you can find a way to happiness. There are lots of options- embryo adoption, fostering, formal adoption. Wherever you end up, I wish you well.
That is awesome that you are thinking about fostering. I think a break will give you some time to explore all your options.
Best of luck tomorrow! I sure hope our dream the same night is a sign that we are soul sisters and will go through this entire journey together until we bring our miracles home.
Karin: I am so sorry about the whole screen saver ordeal. I am glad Hannah understood eventually. What an awesome story of how Hannah came into your life! It sound like it was wonderful for both of you.
So glad you got your baby in a box! Triplets
I bet that is a handful. Thank you again for keeping up the list.
It sound like stimming is going along nicely. No clue on the ultrasound measurements.
I didn't think you were bragging either. How cool that this cycle is so similar to Zach's? BTW, I love your pic. It always reminds me of why I am doing this. I want that adorable family picture.
Welcome. It sounds like you are off to a great start.
Good luck on your first IVF. PGD sounds so complicated.
I am happy you have the RE appt all set up. Hopefully, you can get the pap done soon. Although, for us it was a couple months from my initial RE appt to actual IVF. Have you had a day 3 U/S and labs? My RE did that prior to my first IVF to figure out how to stim me based on my antral follicle count. Then bcp for a month, then actually starting the IVF. So even if you cant get in earlier for the pap, it may not slow you down.
You are one busy woman. One of my guy BFFs is a firefighter. They are true heros. I hope all your timing works out perfectly.
I am sure I have left out a bunch of people. This is one happening place.
Not much going on. A little strange twist of fate. The girl I had lunch with yesterday is someone I used to work with, but now see only a few times a year. She has a 16 month old and they just started trying for #2 last month. She thought since she was 36 it would take at least a few months, maybe a year or two. She blurted out that she was preggars (although she was supposed to keep it quiet). AF should have been July 23 for her. While I am sure we all hate her uber fertileness, what was so funny is she kept trying to talk me into having a baby so she would have a pregger buddy. She doesn't have a clue we are even trying. It was so hard not to say anything. She had literally called while I was on the phone getting my results and was the first person I saw after the news. Little does she know that she and I are only 1 week apart. She is going to kill me when she finds out. Especially since she knew both DH and I from work pretty well (we would all go out to dinner/happy hour/etc), and DH and I started dating while we were working together and hid it from everyone including her. She was so mad when she found out I was hiding our relationship...wait til she finds out about this. She will be happy and excited but mad at the same time.
Anyway, tomorrow is 2nd beta and a progesterone level. Trying to just focus on one day at a time.
