Hello All!

I had my transfer today and things went well. One of my embryos didn't survive over night, so they thawed another single embryo (8 celled). It made it through thaw nicely, so we transferred 2 embryos- the 8 celled and a morula (the emby that was thawed yesterday and grew overnight!) I've been taking it easy today, but it's been a little hard this evening because my girls don't understand why mommy can't do everything she normally does! :)

My beta is scheduled for 10/27, but there's no way I will be able to wait without POAS!

We- congrats on your awesome beta!!!!!! So excited for you!

Bodie- Congrats on your positive HPT!!!!!

Hope everyone else is hanging in there! Positive thoughts and baby dust!

Jen-imbso happy for you. Your PUPO. When are you planning on POAS? Do youbhavevany pics of your little ones? Sending you tons of sticky baby dust. Praying that your little ones snuggle in tight.

AFM-I have a quick question for everyone. Tonight I went to the bathroom and when I wiped a had a little bit if a dark brown discharge. Of course I thought the worse right away. But it was very minimal and not fluid like, it wad more mucous, sorry for TMI. Once I told my DH and I was able to get mysrlf together, I realized that as a nurse I know that dark brown means old blood. So this must be old blood. Not sure from what. I'm on PIO so no irritation from vaginal progesterone. So I'm not sure. I'm truinf to rationalize, I'm not bleeding so everything must be ok. My Beta was very high today so everything must be ok. Truthfuly I don't know but I have to trust that God will help us.

I'm not sure if thiwhat this is. Has anyone had thebaame experience?

jen - my clinic is in Carmel also!! Bonaventura Reproductive. Did you do your FET at IU/Clarian? That is where ours has been and will be this cycle. My u/s is set for 21st and we are hoping for transfer on 28th. Small small world. :)

WeHaveHope,
It could be from the meds, if it persist definately call your doctor, but for now try to get some rest and take care of yourself. Keep positive thoughts and congratulations once again on your 3rd beta being so strong. :D

AFM: Belles came over and tried on her new dress I made for her halloween costume tonight and it was adorable. But she only stayed 10 minutes since her father-in-law texted her to come home for pizza and got her favorite, pepperoni! Her birthday is next Tuesday and she will be with her dad this year so I can understand why her mom and FIL would want to spend every moment she can with her this weekend celebrating her birthday. I made her some jewerly tonight but it was way too quiet around here since she wasn't here in the arts and craft room with me. This afternoon, she mentioned that her mom is taking her to Willow's Tea room for lunch and she invited me to come too but my work schedule is crazy this weekend. Next week will surprise her with the antique teacups I got her for her birthday but hope her mom doesn't think it's a little much, sometimes I get carried away with gifts but I think more sentamental then anything. It's just I don't want her mom to think I'm trying to "adopt" her only daughter because we spend alot of time together. I try to give her space yet very often she texts me to ask if she can come over, because she is "bored." I know it must be hard being an only child and dh oftern reminds me "see this is the reason we need at least two kids." I'm just worried about having one at this point, sigh.I couldn't imagine what it would be like being an only child but I do encourage Belles to be creative and use her imagination in making crafts and she absolutely loves playing in my fabric and hot glue gun making all kinds of stuff. Dh started me a Boyds bear collection over 15 years ago, every Christmas I display them on my foyer table. Belles is creating decorative mini-presents for each bear and she loves it! Talking about her always puts a smile on my face...Dh says we better have a little girl of our very own someday, I laugh and told him but IF it's a boy he'll just have to learn to LOVE Hobby Lobby! :D
Anyway here is a picture of Belles and her halloween costume, trying to be all japanese this year...sassy is her middle name!

Wishes I could do IVF sooner but my time will come. Saving up that much is hard when I'm a stay at home mom :( Now if my Scentsy business would take off well it could at least pay for gas or something! :)

So happy I found this place where the support here for others is awesome!! I will admit in the past I'd have difficulty when someone got a BFP. I'd feel angry and upset but right before I joined here that completely changed. It was like a weight being lifted off of me. I didn't like being like that at all! I still get angry at those that harm children and don't know how precious that gift is but I'm working on that too.

I'm so glad of all your BFP's and I mean that!!

Sunshine, that dress is so cute! You are so talented. Belle is so lucky to have you.

We- not to worry i bled through my whole first pregnancy till 26 weeks. (hopefully this is just a little spotting) As long as there is no cramping my OB told me not to worry. I know it's hard not to though. I think sometimes it's harder when you are a health care professional because you just know to much! My best friend is pregnant right now, she an OB and stresses like crazy every day. Those of us that are not in the know don't stress as much :D

AFM- my DH had a dream that DD was kidnapped, so he woke up and went into the girls rooms and woke them up. Then he went back to bed and I'm up early with them! Oh well, can't complain we are getting some work done.

Happy Saturday everyone!

Good morning,
Thank you all for being so supportive. It means so much to me to have all of you. I don't know what I would do without you guys.

So, I woke up several times last night to urinate and the brown discharge had gone away. I woke up this morning to urinate again and when I wiped there was again a very small amount of dark brown mucous discharge.

I don't know what to think about this. Tuffy, I think your right. Between the MC last cycle and the fact that I'm a nurse I definantely worry a little too much sometimes. Clinically, I know that everything should be ok. That this should be some old blood that accumulated from probably implantation. Brown always means it's old blood not fresh. I know everything should be ok because I'm not bleeding, there is no red or dark red blood, no pain, no blood clots like last cycle, nothing like that. Just a tiny little brown discharge. So I know I should not worry. My RE has always told me that only thing that isn't normal is bleeding like an AF type of bleeding and I am definantely not having that. I may just call the on-call nurse just to get some extra reassurance and hear her clinical thoughts as well. Poor DH was do worried about me last night. Everytime I got up to go to the bathroom, when I came back he would ask me if everything was ok. And then he would reasure me that everything was going to be ok.

Ladies, thank you again for being there for me.
