HopeIsAllIHave wrote:Thanks Leora and CJinNC for the explanation. I guess I'm experiencing a chemical pregnancy then. Sucks. The tears just won't stop rolling. DH had to go to work today, but felt awful leaving me alone at home. I promised him I'll "man-up" and try not doing anything too crazy. Mom and dad left for India today for a visit and came over early this morning to say their goodbyes (boy, do I hate that word).. but anyway, I tried to stay strong and not get too emotional, but they kept saying things like "don't be disheartened, your day will come and we'll save up funds to help you with future cycles". Ahh, how can I not cry listening to that? I don't want my aging parents to worry about me. They should be saving up for their retirement, not for me. Breaks my heart twice as much. Sigh.

Anyway.. to liven up my mood and everyone else's who needs some cheering..

“Nature has got it all wrong: When you are younger, it should be harder to get pregnant, and as you get older it should be easier. When you are so ready, you can’t do it to save your life. And when you are 21, you are so not ready, but you are ripe as could be. The eggs should become more developed the older you get, not die slowly from the day you’re born. That’s one thing God got wrong.” – Halle Berry

I thought this was super cute.

Thanks everyone for being my support system through these difficult times. I feel like other than DH, this is the only other place I can truly let my feelings out. Thanks for listening. <3
HopeIsAllIHave- It DOES suck. I am so very sorry. Sending you big, big hugs. x

Hope - this whole infertility thing sucks! Still keeping you in my prayers..

Leora- good luck or your ER! Tomorrow we can all wake up to some awesome retrieval report from you!

Did anyone have increased cervical mucus during 2ww? I didn't notice it during last cycle. But noticing it now. May be I'm paying too much attention this time. But just wondering if it's good, bad or no sign at all??

Leora - can't wait to hear of your ER today! Lots of mature eggs!

Hope - I am so sorry. I hope the 20% pulls through and they double and you are fine. If your betas keep rising but not normally, please make sure they keep checking you for an ectopic pregnancy. The good news is it implanted and you have the ability to get pregnant, I know it is not much comfort right now but things can work for you and they will!

TAMMY - WHERE ARE YOU?

Lou Getting closer to the US!!!

AFM - having some weird pains all weekend - calling OB :( hopefully all is well!

Ashley...I'm so very sorry. I have been in your shoes a few times. It sucks. I am holding out hope too that it was a twin loss...which is horrible in its self...but that at least one of them makes it. The girls are right...a chemical is before u/s and heartbeat and it's considered a miscarriage after u/s and heartbeat. I personally just call it a miscarriage to eliminate the confusion as to what happened. Sending you lots of hugs and prayers. If this does end up being a chemical...you may find peace in knowing that "at least we know you can get pregnant"...that saying...is exactly what gets me through each and every time. When is your next beta? I just read what your parents said...and it made me cry. That was so sweet of them to say. I love that quote...Halle Berry got it right.

Tiger...I know words dont mean a thing...but I can not tell you how much it kills me when I hear that it didnt work for you. I'm so glad to hear that you are getting some testing done. Great Big Hugs.

Margie...Thanks for the PM. Like I said...I just wanted to get away from the whole IVF thing a bit, try to relax, keep busy, and not drive myself nuts with googling. I hope you girls understand. I am soooo very excited for you and your trip. I can't wait to hear all the details!

Kimber...I'm holding on to hope! I am praying for a terrific beta for you, today! Please dont let the sticks get you down. A friend of mine...never ever had sticks work for her...ever! And, she has been pregnant...4 x's. Lots and lots of prayers! Keep us posted.

Amanda...Again, I am sooo very sorry honey. I am just heartbroken for you. I'm here if you want to talk. That goes for all of you. I've been through the negatives and the beta limbos too many times in the past year...so I do understand.

Jkulab and Hopethisworksm...only 2 more days till your betas! I cant wait to hear good news! Sending lots of prayers for BFP's!

Jkulab...your headache could be a great sign! Have you tested again, today? It still could have been too early yesterday...everyone implants on different days and each cycle is different, too. Hold on to hope!

Lou...So happy that everything is looking wonderful for you and your baby. Yayyy! I hope you had a wonderful time with your friends...what did they say, when you told them? Try to push all that worry aside and enjoy being pregnant! You are going to be a mama!

Rio...Thanks so much for continuing to check in with us...it really means the world to me! When do you find out the gender? Soon isn't it? I'm feeling boy for you. Oh and by the way...We are BUMP BUDDIES again!!! I'm pregnant!!!

Leora...Good Luck tomorrow!!! Enjoy your needle free day. How many do you think they will get? Sending prayers for a terrific ER for you. I have a great feeling that this is it for you....soooo exciting!

Carol...How are you feeling? When do you plan to test? I feel the same way you do about telling everyone early on. For me...it helps. How awful though about your sister...so heartbreaking. Praying for you.

SD...Trigger is gone...so that BFP should be showing up in a few days! Sooo exciting!

Darlene...Cant wait to root you on come April. It wont be long now. I love how when you pray on something...and it suddenly becomes very very clear...and all is right with the world again. Great feeling.

Kerri...Congrats on being PUPO! Do you plan to test? I hope that this is it for you. Saying some prayers for a BFP.

Sherry...You and I are both 11dpo, right? How are you feeling? If I had tested yesterday, mine would have been stark white, too. Did you test today? 10dpo is too early.

Kynlee...Remember Ryann was on lupron for.ev.eh. and she is now pregnant with twins. So I am sure it is fine. Looking forward to cheering you on in March. It'll change your period, I think.

Qita...I wish I could help answer some of your questions...but I am at a loss as well. I hope you get some clearer answers soon. Can you email or call your RE to clarify? Keep us posted.

Katie...I LOVE that picture of them in the mountains skiing. Awesome! I wanted to get Zach out on skis this year...but we never got around to it. Next year.

Connie...Hi and Welcome! I have also dealt with fibroids/polyps and surgery...it sucks big time. I love that you told everyone it is next month...great idea. I kinda did the same last cycle. lol Good Luck with the FET on Thursday!

Hi Anna...Good to see you and to see that you are doing well!

Krisnjer...What is new with you? Have you had ER/ET? Miss you.

Justsolost...What is new with you? I see ER was schedule for approx today?

Andrea...Doing the AF dance for you.

Nwquiz...IUI is coming up right? How are those follies growing?

Samantha...Are you triggering tonight? How are things going for you?

LYD, Sunshine, Anton, Lauren1171, Nat&Alex...and the rest of my IVF sisters...hope you are all doing well no matter where you are in this journey. Baby Dust to you all.

AFM: I'M PREGNANT!!! (now to stay pregnant).
I had some uterus stretching feelings overnight between 6 & 7 dpo and some weird feelings at 8dpo and then at 9dpo...I had the same heavy pain in my thighs, lower back pain, stomach cramping as before when pregnant. Some drooling and nose congestion, too. lol I think the baby implanted on day 8. I tested early this morning at 11dpo (with diluted pee...I had to pee all night, lol) and got a very very faint faint pink line...exactly what I expect to see! Woohoo!!! Sooo very happy! Bill doesnt know yet. I bought him this insanely expensive Valentine's Day card...just so I could record my voice in it..."Happy Valentines Day...We did it!! Congratulations...You're going to be a Daddy again! I love you!" I can't wait to give it to him this afternoon. Beta is Friday, Feb 18th...my niece's 20th birthday. :D

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY EVERYONE!!!

Tammy girl i am sooooo delighted for you, please God everything will be ok this time. Your message had me in tears i know it has been a rough year for you and Bill but when you finally get to meet your little miracle it will be worth while.

Tammy --- Woo hoo!!!! So happy for you!!! I cannot wait for your beta on Friday!!!!! Congrats a hundred times over.

Rio -- I'm sorry about the "weird pains". Perhaps just ligament stretching? Praying all is ok.

Darlene -- Yes, we get over to Grayslake quite often actually. And you are correct, I am at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.

AFM -- So I freaked myself out this morning by POAS again at 24 dpo and the test line seemed lighter than the one I did on Saturday at 22 dpo. When I had my m/c back in may, I noticed the same thing. Should I worry? Here's a pic of the tests.
