Cyn- What is a Natural FET? No meds at all? I wish I could do that kind, I am so nervous about the shots I have to take for the progesterone... :(

Hopethisworks- Congrats :)

Amanda- I can definitely see the line stay positive your good news is almost here :)

Ninde- I hope you feel better soon, a old scholl remedy that my Mom always told me is to take fresh garlic I know it shounds nasty but always works for me... You cut it up then swallow with juice and you cant taste it.. It helps with sore throats...

Nicole- Thanks foe sharing the poem :)

Leora- I thought the same think about the shots vs suppositories who knows Dr's change there minds to much if you ask me... I wish I could stay with the suppositories.. she said for FET I have to do the shots :(

Lauren- Congrats :)

Anton- Good luck on interview.. Cant wait til next month to her about your bday surprise I love surprises too :)

Sunshine- I hope you are doing better today I am thinking about you xo

AFM_ Had a hectic weekend, but over all nice weather to enjoy... Saturday I delivered the baby stuff to that girl I collected 2 car loads and 1 truck load of stuff.. The Pastor was so surprised at what I got donated and he said the girl was over the moon so that made my day to know I helped someone out... :) As for Mothers day that was tough for me My mom passed 8 yrs ago but still feels like yesterday and I felt I needed her more then ever since I still have not had my dream come true... Hung with my family they always cheer me up so I ended up with a nice afternoon... My Pharmacy never shipped my meds out last week I called today and talked to someone and told her I need them asap... If I get A/f I will have to wait till next mth if my meds dont get to me in time :( fingers crossed I get them tomorrow and A/F weds :) Just want to get the ball rolling...

Anton, you are absolutely right! The loss is still there. Isn't it strange to think about how many little lives we have all created. I had 5 embies that made it to transfer. We started with 9 and I found myself sad for the ones that didn't make it to day 5. For me the loss has felt different for the failed cycle and the mc cycles, but the loss is significant nonetheless. I couldn't find a good poem written specifically for infertility. I really liked the one I posted. I hope it speaks to everyone in some way.

Anton- Thanks! Still waiting on his orders (hopefully ready tomorrow when he checks) then we can get our plan tickets! Good luck tomorrow on the presentation/interview! I'm sure you will do great!! We saw the Avengers on Saturday as well, and it was GREAT!! I agree on those funny parts and the hulk...too funny!! Have fun on your trip with your BF! Can't wait to hear all about it!

Leora- Glad you are waiting for your BETA! After the Avengers, the next day we rented the first Men in Black. Three comes out soon so DS needed a refresher since he was so young when we saw it last and didn't really understand any of it. It was a nice refresher for us too.

Kynlee - You should be fine. Many docs don't consider it to be day 1 unless you have a full flow anyway. Yay for starting tomorrow!!

Cyn - Lupron can drive a girl crazy. So can AF. I think I probably cry every month. I'm sure your DH understands. He's been around long enough he prob knew your AF was coming based on your emotions :)

Christy - For the people that knew I was doing IVF, I set them "Happy Mother's Day" texts and then asked why they didn't wish me one :) For the others, we're definitely waiting until July. I love your Belles stories.

Chris - I was 10dp5dt. Crazy, right? I definitely like knowing the sex, but also feel more connected because of it, so I don't know if it's a good or bad thing.

Amanda - I can definitely see the line! Two more days until Beta, right?? WOOHOOO!!!

Antonia - my MIL will never be pleased. She'll somehow spin this into a way that I've trapped my DH into staying with me as though he had no say in the matter. I hate her. In fact, we've been in weekly therapy because of her. You have SO MANY godchildren!! That's a lot of spiritual guidance to give, lady. Good Luck tomorrow with your interview and presentation! Fingers crossed!!!

Leora - CLOTH?? I want them. I'm looking online NOW. ONE WEEK for you, honey. YESSSS.

I'm sure I've missed people and I'm sorry, but I think about all of you often.

AFM - Every hour I freak out that they're not in there anymore. Today I felt really different. No really cramping or twinges, just tired. They're in there, right?! Right?! I'm actually going in tomorrow for a beta even though he said it was unnecessary. The nurses said it was fine if I wanted piece of mind and I have to go to the pharmacy across the street anyway. HOW DO I DO A TICKER? I don't think I've ever done one, have I? YAY!!!! I'm staring by to hear (read) all your upcoming good news.

Anton- You write so beutifully and I agree with you about the lost embryos. I feel the same way. I wonder what your surprise is?? How exciting? I can't wait to hear what it is.

annashope- I can't wait until the day we get to Baptist our baby.What a beautiful memory it must be :D :D

Margi- I am so glad you still pop in & check in on us. It warms my heart to see you & the little ones doing so well.

Leoria- I think I am done with POAS now. LOL but I know you are not far behind me

Keripuppies- Thank you for crashing & the support.

Lauren319- They are still there honey. Just try to relax which of course is not easy to to. I mean look at me I went completely ape shit with the POAS..lol Let us know how the second beta is :)


AFM; Sorry it took me a few days to get to personals. I was sending the pics from my phone & I can't do personals on my phone. I am so excited about the test this morning. I shake so much when trying to take a picture I look like a crack addicted needing her crack..lol Hell my hands are still shaking from the excitement!! DH is asleep & I haven't got to show him the test. I wonder if they would let me come in today to do the beta? It is 2:30 a.m and I know I won't be sleeping so I could my nurse when they open..Hmmm something to think about. I want to say thank you for supporting my crazy test this weekend.

Hey ladies - I hope you are all doing well! I still drop by and read all of your posts regularly. Lots of exciting things going on here so I wanted to add some notes too :)

Lauren - congrats girl - I'm so excited for you! That is an awesome beta - maybe you will be joining me in preparation for multiples :) :) Good luck with your U/S on Friday - I'm sure you will have more peace of mind once you can see the baby/babies! You might need to consolidate some of the other lines of your signature a little to make room for the baby ticker!

Amanda - that definitely sounds and looks like a solid BFP to me - congrats!!! Good luck with your beta tomorrow!

Hopethisworks - Congrats on the 2 heartbeats!! When do you go back again?

Anton - good luck with your interview and presenatation - sounds like you are very prepared for it! Hopefully this will be the job that is smart and hires you!!

Leora - be patient friend! My last cycle, I also tried to hold off as long as I could to POAS. I wanted to try to stay positive and thinking I could be pregnant as long as possible. I think it is just too frustrating to start testing early and start seeing the negative results. The best things are worth a wait, right? Interesting dream - maybe your embryo is a girl!!!

AFM - Everything is going well so far - babies are getting big, they are all just around 2lbs by now! I'm getting enormous pretty quickly too! I've been busy trying to get ready for them - hoping I still have at least 6 weeks until they arrive, but know that bedrest may be in my future sometime sooner. Here is a pic from last week's U/S - it is crazy how much you can already get an idea of what they may look like!

Wow, so much has happened in 2 days on here. I will do personals tonight for sure but looks like lots of good news :)

Well, last night I had a few drops of blood. It seems to have stopped now so I'm hoping it was nothing. Blood was standard red (not brown or anything). At first i was REAL worried but i think im more calm now and the bleeding stopped. Emailed the doctor and nurses just in case. I'll post personals and an update tonight. Have a great day girls!

Anton - that trip sounds AMAZiNG! Because we are trying to save a little money (so many of our friends are buying houses, and we want to also!), we aren't spending anything on trips - we go camping a lot, which is fun, but not the same thing! :D How was the presentation for the job interview? Any news on that yet?

I hope your surprise is great! My DH once told me he bought me a surprise for Hanukah -- I was in anticipation for WEEKs -- but it turned out to be a new wireless mouse for my computer. He thought that was a great gift. I was less than enthused... :roll:

Chris - when are you getting started? soon?

Christy - ain't no such things as baby showers or registries here - so none of that for me. We've been planning our guest room/office for a baby room FOREVER. I emptied out drawers in anticipation of filling them with baby stuff -- and impressively - they are still empty! Have so much fun with Belle!

Cyn - there is a new "thing" going around about how people are too "connected" with their wireless devices. Maybe make "no device" times - like dinners out. We don't use our phones at all when we are on a date, which is nice. Congrats on getting AF - but it's annoying your clinic didn't tell you in advance to only come on CD2! Hopefully the time you were early today can count against the time you'll be late tomorrow.

Kynlee - started CD2 for a FET shouldn't be a problem. I usually start my FETs on CD1-2 and my fresh on CD2-3. Have your meds come yet?

Gina - the original MIB is such a great movie! MIB II isn't bad either. I'm soooo excited for the new one!

Lauren - I don't think I would want to use cloth pads for a period (too icky too clean and I'm lazy), but I almost never ever use pads for bleeding (only for m/c and post-partum) (and I actually just bought a Diva Cup to try instead of tampons, but I haven't gotten a chance to use it (showed up in the mail after AF stopped) and hopefully won't for another 9 months or so!)http://myworld.ebay.com/ddmm808/&_trksi ... 1439.l2754 I bought from this seller on eBay and I'm really happy (but my price consideration included int'l shipping, so there might be cheaper ways to get them in the USA). My doctors do one beta and if it's good, they just schedule an u/s -- but if you want another beta, go for it!
To add the ticker you made, put it between the IMG code (not the URL, like it is now, making it a link).

Amanda - YAY! Let us know your beta number! I'll be stalking!

Kbillsy - you are getting so close - but hopefully those babies will keep baking for another little while. If you have questions about the NICU (which everyone hopes they won't need, but with triplets, you probably will), just ask me.

HopeThisWorksM - sorry about the bleeding - but it's common with twin pregnancies. Get another u/s if it'll ease your mind. But everything is probably fine.

Julia - great! I heard that at 10 weeks, your chance of loss is about 10% of your age (ie, I'm 25, so my odds at 10 weeks would be 2.5%) How are you feeling?

AFM - 5dp2dt -- stiiillll waiting. Beta in a week, POAS in 6 days. If I was crazy POAS, I would be starting tomorrow, but I'm not going to!

I really need to give my pee sticks to a friend for safekeeping so the temptation doesn't get too strong!
