Christy- Can't believe you lost your wedding dress that way! After this move we'll do the rest by ourselves with the help of my parents because I'm tired of careless movers! They label and keep up with everything and we do get money for the damaged/broken stuff or they find someone to repair. It's scary because we have some really nice furniture that is made in Germany and other surrounding countries, so if messed up we have to try and find a good place to fix it in the states. They are also bad about putting things on top or under stuff to make more room! We have a hand carved wooden/marble coffee table that we will make them wrap AND box so nothing gets on or under it. They usually can't fit our couch in their truck without setting it on its end, but we aren't letting them this time either so they well have to do better. It is very nerve wracking. They put small breakables all together with bigger stuff. It's bad sometimes. We try to keep an eye on them but it's just two trying to watch 4-5 guys. Hopefully they will put all our wine in there like two other movers have done for us. We can actually put wine in them now BUT we are supposed to pay taxes up front, so hopefully we won't have to. We are up to 46 bottles now!

Morning ladies :D

Maria: thank you so much for updating my status :D. How are you feeling?

Leora: no, I wont be poas, I didnt the last time until after the first beta. Sometimes its no harm to take a break. What do you usually find helps with the depression and anxiety?

Hopethisworks": lovely to hear from you, so when will er be and how are you feeling?

Cyn22: I know what you mean! A friend of mine is coming over shortly so I'll move from bed to couch! We will probably go out for lunch but he is driving so once there is no walk involved my accupuncturist said its fine. Have you found any new websites?!!

Gina: good luck!!

Babysoft: good luck on the vitamin search :lol: I hope you feel less 'tender today :D

Christy: on the Accupuncture, if your cycle is starting in 6 weeks then you really should go now. One tip: find a fertility accupuncturist not just someone who needles for pregnancy. Most accupuncturists will do it but its far better to get a specialist because they know a lot more about it. I went three times a month - once bin the first six days, once just before ovulation and once after day 21. You can then have it as follicles are growing but not within three days of er. Then you have it immediately before and after transfer. Now its possible others do it differently but that was my schedule and my lady is a specific fertility accupuncturist.

Julia: how are you doing?

Nicole: doing ok?

Greek: how is your tummy and also your heart?

LauraN: are your meds going ok?

Globetrotter: injections still ok?

Afm: as i mentioned, friend comi g over then a gentle drive to lunch, then back to bed. This is so weird for me!!

Leora-I hope you start feeling better Sion.

Babysoft-when is your next Beta? You had asked about u/s, I had mine at 6 weeks. I think tha is pretty typical. I recall my RE saying that he does u/s after 6 weeks and one tge Beta gets over 1,500 because any earlier they really can't see anything. Wishing you all the best. I can't wait to hear about your 2nd Beta.

Julia-try to take it easy. I felt crampy like my period was coming and it never did. Please don't loose hope. I have faith that this is going to work for you.

Hopethisworksm-welcome back!!!

Cyn-how are you doing?

Greekchick-um glad to hear that you are meeting with your RE and exploring some options and additional testing. I will have Skype on my phone today in case you want to chat. I will try to find out some ingot on those tests for you. Sending you a big hug.

Globetrotter-haven't heard from you in a few days. How are you doing?

I am sure I've missed some of you and I am so sorry. I am typing in my fll phone a's I am trying to get ready for work. Went back to work yesterday and I'm pretty tired today. All is well. I'm hoping to be able to go to the movies this weekend. I'm so glad that bed rest is over, for now. Can't wait until my anatomy scan on Monday. I will keep everyone posted.

Hi Ladies,

I hope everyone is feeling well. I'm on my phone so this will be quick. Went in for my 2nd beta this morning, only to find out they don't call with the result after the first beta :twisted: :twisted: I'm a little bothered by that, but I have all intentions of calling my RE this afternoon requesting my results! I also found out that they do u/s as soon as my beta hits 2000...by my calculations that should be sometime near the end of next week.

Greek - How are you? Glad your RE is bringing you in and I hope it's an informative meeting. I'm not sure what those test are, but I will tell you going through infertility over the years, I've had EVERY single test imaginable performed on me, so it may be typical I just began to concentrate more on the results than the names of the test.

Julia - Try to be positive, I remember feeling the same way you did. Not wanting to get my hopes up and be disappointed, that is probably why I tested so early! I wish I would have relaxed more and been more optimistic, as I would have saved myself days of stress! Ton of sticky dust and positive vibes being sent your way...Good Luck

Ninde - How is your 2ww....I as that question as if I don't already know! It's torture waiting, but hopefully you will get your BFP and it will all be worth it! Sounds like you are staying busy, which will make the time go much faster! I have every limb crossed for your upcoming BFP!!

Sunshine - I had been on prenatal but only received a sample pack and kept forgetting to tell them which kind I preferred. Strange thing, Im not a fan of prenatals...they make me feel icky!! But the new ones I have now seem to be working. Still tired but managing it a lot better. Good luck on your cycle in May!

Hope - Two more days until injections start!! Good Luck!

Well ladies....hopefully I'll get my beta results and keep you guys posted.

Babysoft- Thinking of you this morning and cannot wait to see this beta doubles for this mama. :D

Ninde- lol You sound a little stir crazy if you ask me. :D Enjoy your lunch with a dear friend, I am so like you in never staying still for more then 5 minutes but you know what is best. I can tell you my first and only IVF I personally didn't know all these things and we had dh's parent's coming that following weekend...well let's say I learned to leave all the vacumming to dh. Anyway keep taking it easy during your 2ww just remember no out-of-towners ok? :D

Gina- Now that's a whole lota of wine! My dh friend brought a bottle of Chardonney to our last party, and it was so good but I know the more they age the better they get! So I'm trying so hard not to open my Pinot I brought back fm Somona Valley, Ca. My new neighbor Cammie (that I haven't met but dh knows from work) wasn't able to make it to our last cookout but they close on their house April 15th, I'm trying to brainstorm for a good housewarming gift, lol maybe a bottle of wine? Maybe a wreath for their front door. She has invited us out to play volleyball twice with a group she knows but something always comes up but I cannot wait to meet Cammie, just hope she's not too pretty and the neighborhood turns into a Desperate Housewifes of PineBrook. lol (just kidding) I know she is very church involved and sponsors a little one overseas, ugh I just don't like dh already knowing someone that I don't know who's moving into our neighborhood. He could really play it up before I even meet her so I'm trying not to ask him any more questions. lol

Julia- Our minds can play tricks on us, but you so deserve this! I'm so glad you are doing so well and I'm praying this is your time to shine. Keep us posted n your progress.

Maria-I hope you enjoy the movies this weekend. I cannot tell you the last time we went to see a show, lol I think it was actually "The Big Goodbye" but that doesn't really count since it was at the college and dh got in free. lol we are too frugal but then again it's hard to find something really worth going to see.

AFM: AF is in full force and I called the clinic to apparently play phone tag, so we will see when I go in for the baseline scan to start bcp. Really hope it's not until next month since Lupron is scheduled to start on May 4th.

Hey Ladies,


I hope everyone is enjoying their day! Just called my Dr. office and got my 2nd beta results: 416 .....more than doubled. Can I still hold out hope for more than a singleton?

Kerpupples: thank you so much for crashing! How are you doing?

Babysitting: congratulations that's wonderful, im really not sure about numbers and singletons. My first beta was 515 (we only do one in ireland) and scan only showed one baby at 7 weeks. Others had much lower numbers than that and had twins. You cant tell rally til scan.

Ninde - good luck!!! I hope you get a BFP this cycle!
I was thinking, since your husband was on suppliments, does it make sense to collect a sample anyway and freeze it for later use, just in case? This way you don't let all the good suppliments go to waste... Just a thought.
