Kynlee -please don't worry too much, I completely understand how you're feeling but like so many others have said, bleeding and especially old blood episodes in the first trimester are so much more common than you would think and for some reason (actually I even read a research about it once) for IVFers even more.

Tiger - Finally!!! wonderful results, so wonderful to be sharing this with you (as well as how we spend our weekends), great sharing something positive news after all the hard work.

To_have_fun - how many days post ovulation are you? for many ladies low betas don't mean anything but I know it's not easy to relax right now. I'm crossing my fingers for a good rise and for the little girl to snuggle in where she belongs!

Blueeyedreamer - wow! so great you start stimming on Friday! can't wait to hear how you're doing!

anton - Congrats on your new job. You can share anything with us, like a job that brings you closer to your baby dream or anything. Just like Kynlee said, you are always cheering on us, we want to be here for your success, we will be unbelievably happy for you and a job that brings the dream closer is just the best news ever for us too! Soon now!

Leora - TY, I'm really crossing everything for you. I totally get you not wanting to be in limbo, enough is enough. We are all here with you and personally I think the forum wouldn't be the same if you took a break, stay with us

POCOS - I'm bloated nearly as badly as i was during my last pregnancy. It's impossible to sleep on my sides, and gets worse at night. I wish for you a very comfortable BFP!

Margi - thank you so much. I'm just happy to be pregnant. I am so grateful.

Ninde - Because of our PTL I won't be safe until I see and hear the baby, I don't want to disappear on you. I need you and I so want you to join me as soon as possible! I'm so excited for you and I know you'll make a baby very lucky one day. Your network sounds amazing. I'm a biologist and I always think it's so amazing the connection between our body and soul. It's so obvious.

We - Oh, honey I'm so sorry about the ongoing contractions. I do have experience with contractions showing too early when you don't want to have them. Hang on as much as you can. A friend of mine gave birth to beautiful twins when she was 34 weeks. They are totally perfect, just amazing twins!

Always - Thank you. I hate the 2WW. I have to admit that not googling too much this time actually made it easier on me. Can't wait for your good results!

Wondercat and Madam x - how are you? thank you both so much for your wishes.

AFM - beta tomorrow, I'm scared but what's new? Oh. yah. I'm nervous too at anybody and anything. Just like that.

Blessings,
Kay

Evening ladies

Antonia: Thats fantastic news - well done you (if I knew how to import pictures of congratulations I would!!). You must be so relieved and you deserve this so much. Your hard work and tenacity paid off :)

Leora: Glad to hear from you. HOw are you doing? I have no clue what to take from your news though - what does an irregular gestational sac mean? And you have a heartbeat? Im certainly praying for you and I have been all week.

Kynlee: I'm really sorry, you must be scared. But the advice here is very good. When will you go for u/s? And I'm so pleased there has been no more blood today. This journey is so hard isn't it? Your faith is wonderful. I get very mad with God at times :oops:

Pocos: Oh fantastic report. And a three day is perfectly good :) Take it easy now with those symptoms.

Maria: how are you today?

Always: Doing ok?

Tiger: YOu are very very welcome. Im so thrilled with your great betas!!!!

Tohavefun: Oh thats great news! When is your next beta?

Julia: Hey!

Madam x: I hope I wasn't rude when I said not to disappear. I know people stay on these forums for as long as they need them - and its my stuff but I'm always a little disappointed when someone just ups and leaves when they get BFPs. I genuinely believe in reciprocity and I think its marvellous when you wonderful pregnant ladies can ease our minds as you have been through it and also that we get to journey with you. Yes, the link between mind and body is amazing, one of my specialisms is trauma and the link there is just huge (as I have no doubt your know). Your work must be really exciting?
I'm wishing you lots of blessings for tomorrow's results

Afm: Still down regging :)

Ninde- My u/s is next weds at 10am, i will feel so much better when I see my bean ;) I know how easy it is to blame God with things but I chose to have him by my side if it wasnt for him I would not have made it through the past 3 yrs of IVF I know its in his timing and I had to think that way each time I got my BFN :) My Mom was a strong believer and when she passed I had to go to him to get me threw days without her, she was my Best Friend and losing her was one of the hardest things I went through with my family. :) How is your throat feeling?

Crashing....
Anton-congrats on the job girl! I can't wait to read all about how it's going and then cheer you on to your bfp!!!!!!

Leora-holy crap! I totally had a dream that it wasn't over for you...which seems borderline stalker :) but I just couldn't wrap my head around another loss for you, so I must have been thinking about it before I fell asleep! Why oh why are they making you wait so long??????

Leora-I'll be praying for you and your little bean.

Ninde-how are you doing?

Pocos-great report, congrats!!!

Anton-congratulations on the new job. They are very lucky to have you.

Tiger-congratulations!!!

Julia-nice to hear from you. How are you feeling?

Kynlee-I'm glad you haven't ha anymore bleeding. I'll continue to ray foe you.

ToHaveFun08-congratulations!!!

AFM-I was in Labor & Delivery today again. I've been having contractions about every 20 minutes or so. They ss an u/s and my cervix was 2.1 cm in length and funneling. I was told to go home and rest and call my OB so I can see him in the morning. However, when I call the office the nurse told me that since I have an appointment next Tuesday I didn't née to go in tomorrow. I guess I'm a bit baffled. I don't really have any answers other than it seems like maybe I'm DH and I seem to be much more concerned than anyone else is. I'm not very satisfied with not really knowing what's going on. I actually feel a bit frustrated today which is not like me at all. I'm pretty laid back. DH says that I should call in the morning and ask some questions so that we can feel a bit more reassured. I think I will do just that first thing in the morning. I'm sorry if I missed anyone. I am keeping each of you in my prayers.

Wow! Lots of things happened in the last 24 hours!

Leora- What news!!! I am totally rooting for you and this baby!!!

Tiger – CONGRATS!!! Nice numbers

Kynlee – So glad the nurse and everyone on here is was able to reassure you! I bet you it is your little embie snuggling in there and setting up shop!

Blue – Yay for starting stims on Friday!! How long have you been on the stims in the past?

Anton – That is great you got the job!! My husband does a lot of work at our local P&G. He always tells me about how well the treat their employees. He was at a function yesterday and you should heard what they received …. Cases of their products! Paper towels, tissues, cleaning supplies. He said it was like an assembly line of workers getting their cars loaded up. When your baby dream comes true you will have all kinds of baby products thrown at you I am so happy you will be trying again soon too!

Tohavefun- That is a great doubling time! What does your RE seem to think? Hang in there.

Kay – Good luck tomorrow!! Will be stalking of course

Ninde – Did you get me confused with someone else?

Maria – What does funneling mean? Let us know what you find out in the morning.


AFM- Got another summer school class. So working till about 1 everyday. Today I went to my friend's pool after school, she has a 3 year old and all of my high school friends and thier kids all came. I watched them all play while catching some rays. I must say is was a raging pool party for kids!!!

MadameX-thank you. Funneling means that the cervix is opening at the top but not all the way through which would mean that the cervix is dilating. But Aldo my cervix has shortened. I'm not sure why the doctor doesn't seem to be as concerned. Maybe we are just worrying too much but I would really like to hear directly from the OB what he thinks and what the plan is. How are you doing?

Kynlee-thanks. I definitely will be calling the OB's office first thing in the morning. How are you feeling today?
