Jayne- u/s Friday. I'm praying hard for you lady! It's such a tough thing you are going through. Wishing you all the best.

Nancy- I knew he/she would make it!!! Congrats on being PUPO!!!

AFM- feeling relieved and a little guilty right now. Had a beta today bc I was convinced I wasn't Preggo due to no symptoms. My doubling time had increased to thirty nine hours...I'm at 20,500!!! Super happy but sad for others on the board struggling today. Hang in there ladies. I so wish we were all celebrating today.

Love,

Bliss

You are PUPO right? I know you're sad because it didn't make it but hopefully that means you are not going to need it because you are going to get a BFP!!!

Anton,
I checked the link about Adenomyosis. It sounds terrible. I thought that I would have my utreous reomved when I first heard the description. Luckily, the doctor said it was treatable by medication. Anyway, the MRI result did not show the condition and the result from hysterscopy last year was also all right. I hope the doctor has ruled out this terrible condition :shock:

Because I can, I'm doing bed rest the rest of this week. I'm only getting out of bed to pee LOL The earliest I'll venture out will be Saturday but if I can get that changed, I'll stay home Saturday as well. My RE recommends bed rest day of transfer, and the next two days so as far as he is concerned, I could be up and going on Friday with no lifting, exercise or intercourse.

HEY LADIES,

I've recently returned from my LAST visit with my FERTILITY DOC (I hate separations :cry: ) and the appointment was magical!

My lil JuJu Bean's heart is strong @ 177 BPM...I can see the umbilical cord, the lil" arms, leg...Big ol' head and Placenta. There was even movements!!! I'm sure it's the results of the developing nervous system. I was so thrilled and relieved that my fall on Friday didn't harm JuJu. My Doc informed me that there will be a "BABY PARTY" in September and approx 75-100 of his successful patients will be there...I will definitely be there!!! I'm gonna try to post a picture of my sono for you guys! Thanks for the well wishes and prayers guys...GOD IS GOOD, ALL THE TIME!!!

According to my last appt./ due date given ( Jan 4th) I shud be 9 wks today but today he told me I was 8wks & 3 days??? I dunno.... I'm not adjusting my Ticker again, it's off give or take a few days! I honestly believe that the original calculation is most accurate....so it stays!

This is so wonderful to read!!!! I'm sure it will be hard to not be going back to the fertility clinic. I think I'll struggle with that too when we get to that point (praying like crazy it's THIS time) but at the same time what a wonderful step into a new season! The "baby party" sounds wonderfully amazing. What a neat thing.

I need voices of reassurance please.

Sorry if TMI but we are all ladies here, right. 3 hours ago I dosed with my Crinone suppository. A little bit ago I used the restroom and noticed a huge clump of the progesterone on my panty liner (there is usually a little seepage but never this much). And it was pinkish. Not red or AF looking. Pinkish. I washed up and returned to my desk at work, but it was weighing on my mind. So I just returned to the restroom and (wrapping it in toilet paper) put my finger inside myself a bit to see if I would have any red. It was clean. No pink or red. Clean

I don't really know what to think. Should I redose when I get home? Why was it pinkish? I'm scared.

Beta is this Friday.

Hey Becca,

I know that with my suppository, I use an applicator, do you use an applicator? If so, maybe the applicator broke the skin of your vaginal wall and bleed a little bit turning the suppository pink? I never seen a big clump of progesterone expelled but some days there is very little seepage and other days it's constant. I believe your body absorbs what it needs and gets rid of the rest.

Another reason why such a large amount was expelled may be because it wasn't placed high enough in the vagina to hold and break down gradually the way it should. These are just my educated guesses, I am no doctor or nurse just trying to give you something to consider. I don't think it will be a big deal to redose when you get home since if you feel the entire or most of the medication was expelled. Think about what you did today...were you more active or on your feet more than usual? Gravity may have a played a role in too. Don't stress out...If there isn't a constant flow of blood or cramping I wouldn't worry (as much) but if that should happen call your doc!

P.S: I'm on Endometrin Suppositories & PIO. During my visit today he told me i can discontinue the PIO and continue the suppositories for 2 more weeks. I am so irritated from the suppositories I asked if I can contiinue the injections and discontinue the supp. because I am way to old for diaper rash :oops: :oops: He said that was fine, but increased the dosage of thr injections. I really hated the suppositories!!!!
