I know many women bleed in their first trimester but when it happens to you its so scary.
Anna, when I was bleeding my doctor told me not to worry and I literally laughed and said "Yeah right".

I would go in for another beta just to ease your mind. Your pregnancy tests look fantastic.

Annashope and Julia, you are both in my prayers. Thanks Ninde, I was just hoping for an email or something from my Niece with several REAL apologize before sending me the millionth invite. I'm standing my ground for now though and maybe she'll get the hint why I haven't excepted.


Well we are STILL paper mache'ing. Lordy, layering it and getting it dry is a pain but it's getting there! So after everyone thought the waiver was in the states at Knox......it NEVER was! :shock: :twisted: It was send on the 12th so now we wait all week AGAIN! DH had to get someone on it and at least now they have someone on their cases because this has been unreal!! DH still believes it will be signed and everything okay. However if not it's going to be worse dragging it out to tell DS. If it is signed that is great of course but it needs to hurry because LOTS have to be done! Not to mention he'll have to wait for orders to be cut and they love taking their sweet time, ugh! This has been a nightmare but the military wouldn't have it any other way heh.

Congrats Julia !!

Hopethisworksm and globetrotter-Congratulations on being PUPO. - How long did you do or still doing bed rest? I did 6 last time and started moving around and day 8 I started to bleed so I think I am doing the full 2ww's on my next cycle.

Annashope- Praying your miracle baby is good! Just think things happen for a reason so this little guy/gal is here so I think its a fighter and will stick around!! So amazing and exciting.

Hope everyone else is doing well!!

AFM- Saw our doctor on Friday and he wants and feels a full natural FET cycle will work the best..Thinks maybe my body didn't like the high estrogen levels so it wouldn't let the embryos implant because everything else was a "perfect cycle" to them all .. We have 3 6day (2A's & 1b) and 3 5days (1b & 2c's) enough for 3 cycles of FET -if they all thaw good- he said they been having really good success rates on FET Cycle even with C's . So he thinks our success rates should be good!! He want no Meds in my system... because of timing issues with my work (I travel alot) I need to wait until end of May so the doctors suggested we do a Beta 3 Integrin Biopsy in the mean time just to see my lining at the ovulation time.. So I need to get my ovulation kit and start testing later this week. Has anyone ever had one of these tests? I will try anything for these babies to stick...
Good Luck to ALL!

Julia ya for a perfect heartbeat :) :) I hope to join you in a sigh of relief soon.Your picture is awesome thanks for sharing

We and Bunny thank you girls so much for your encouragement. No bleeding today so keeping my fingers crossed. Re ok'ed another beta tomorrow at 7:30 so I will be a nervous wreck but God willing we will get a good number. As long as thinks are ok on the numbers RE thinks it must be implantation bleeding and told me it can last up to 12 weeks :shock:

anna~ Just dropping in to tell you I am praying for you. I hope everything is okay. Do you remember all the bleeding I had?? So much and for so long. It can be okay, but it will never stop the worry. Hope you are well.

Has anyone here done an FET recently? Trying to find out how the process is...we have three embryos waiting. Starting to think about when. :)

Julia, congratulations!

Cyn22, I rested only the day of the transfer. I'll try and take it a little easy but I have to go to work (Im a teacher) and continue with my life to some degree :) I think we overdue it with the bed rest sometimes here.

Evening ladies

Leora: In terms of obgyn, we do things site differently here. Birth control (not that I've needed it!) Is given by family doctor and smears are done in specific clinics. And for pregnancy it will be a specialised consultant who goes through the nine months with you. Fantastic you have started again. Is it fet?

Annashope: oh thank good ess the bleeding has slowed. And I know what you mean, the bleeding is very scary

Maria: how are you doing?

Gina: all the waiting and delays must be so frustrating

Knylee: good to hear from you

Julia: that's truly wonderful. Thank God.

Cyn: that sounds so positive. Im delighted for you.

Hopethisworks: im utterly with you on the bed rest and maybeoverdoing it. I rested totally this time and I didnt even get as far as testing whereas last time i rested but was up and about and got pregnant. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to this.

Afm: meeting my re tomorrow and im actually dreading it. However I'll psyche myself up

Felicia-thank you. We are excited. Nervous, but excited!

Patricia- I totally understand not being excited about the Mtg tomorrow but hopefully you will get some answers and new options. I'll be praying for you!

Annas, how are you feeling?

Kynlee-thank you! How are you doing?

Hopethisworks-thank you!

Cyn-thank you!

Afm-i'm exhausted. We walked around Nashville, went to the country music hall of fame, had lunch at hard rock cafe. I'm stool amazed that everything is ok. Next ultrasound is in two weeks. But my Dr said we could breathe a little now and no one at my clinic EVER said that before to us lol. She mentioned bleeding and not to freak out if I had any, even as much as a period...can't remember why we talked about that. Hopefully won't happen though.

Congratulations Julia! I know it's so overwhelming hearing the heartbeat for the very first time, lol I feel like singing along with Madonna. But anyway soooooo happy for you, you very much deserve nothing but baby bliss!

Annashope, You WILL get through this one baby step at a time, I cannot wait to hear how tomorrow goes!

LaureN, lol dh told me today he's applying to FOUR community colleges in surrounding areas close to Houston, TX. Wouldn't that be insane if we were going to the same clinic? He's also applying to a college in Decatar, AL (which would be very close to our family, not to mention cost of living is so much better in Al in comparison to Fl.) I'm anxious to see how everything plays out.

Leora, I know what you mean sometimes I get emotional but I have to figure out what's best for us and the timing has to be right but I know it's not over, I will be cycling once we get all settled. With today's economy, no job is safely secured. We either sink or swim... I'm glad you start stimming this weekend!

Kynlee, thank you for thinking of me today...it made my lunch break so much better hearing from you.

Mellow, we meet in full circle, I so remember you with Maribel's precious gummy smile! We long to have 2 kids someday too.

AFM: Took me a power nap when I got home... feeling much better. One of dh's colleagues is retiring soon so as she goes through her exit review dh found out today how she is going to really make a huge deal out of my dh being so mistreated. He feels like the scapegoat right now, students along with others in his division are furious! They are sending emails to the vice president that this was unexpected and unfair, remarking how dh made an impact here and how the students loved him.

Honestly we don't expect anyone will change their mind and give dh his job back. But this particular colleague has given $$$ toward scholarships/ foundations with everyone knowing her she is very influential in our area with 30 yrs of service. If anything she can find out more why they decided not to renew dh's contract. Dh is trying to find closure so we feel maybe this colleague can find out more when she talks with the dean w/ her upcoming exit review. In the meantime dh is applying to many other openings and he especially liked TX because they require 45 hours to graduate and offer a wider spectrum of academic classes. He just needs to be somewhere that has a stronger solid structure, seriously our college here is literally turning into a techincal school (reducing the hours needed to graduate.) In the meantime, I'm working on a promotion at work enabling us medical benefits so we shall see what happens next. :)
