Leora - I'm so happy for you, I didn't know what to think when I wrote and asked about you yesterday, then this miracle bean!!! Wonderful news, wonderful timing and the best picture ever!

Kynlee - I'm feeling okay in the mornings, but because I still get so bloated in the afternoons and evenings I find it difficult to sleep and generally feel very heavy and try to be as little active as I can. It's been going on for a while now, so quite tiring to be honest. Sorry about your allergies! About the progesterone, it's true that the placenta should take over and produce what your pregnancy needs faster in an FET than a fresh cycle, yet some doctors would still say keep you on it until 10 weeks or so. About the estrace - I stopped the day after our BFP, and I think you should be fine too.

Tiger - I guess what you're saying about the bacteria in sauna could be true, not all bacteria species die in these high temperature, unless they are exposed to the hit for a very long time. I'm anyhow not using it now, but it's a lovely memory I have...

Always - how are you feeling?

Blue - like I told tiger, it's been a while now since I last used the sauna but I do love it.

Ninde - yup, will be nice to get reassured with a good U/S and waiting till next Wednesday next week seems so long...How is your cycle going? What is your schedule?

Hugs and blessings to all,
Kay

Leora, that's awesome! Hopefully this is going to be the only worry spot in this pregnancy and it will be all clear sailing from here! You know how every pregnancy hag got "something". Hopefully this is this "something" and you are all good from here till week 40!

Tiger – Congrats on the 5 weeks!

Leora – Sooo happy for you! What a blessing!

Blueyedreamer – I also continued with my exercise routine until I wasn’t feeling confortable (last days of stiming). It is very important to listen to our bodies.

Ninde – I am feeling great, almost back to normal, my belly is much smaller now! I am glad you like the juice. Just make sure the pineapple is ripe. I usually buy it but have to wait a few days before it is ripe.

Alwaysangel – Congratulations! I logged in today just to see your results! Sooo happy for you!

Kay – You are so funny! But you know what? I bought some maternity pants this weekend! LOL at least I am confortable at work right now! I am feeling much better, what makes me worry that I am not pregnant. My beta is on 8/7. OMG I’ll have my beta on 8/7 and you’ll have your ultrasound on 8/8. Good luck for us!

Kynlee – I hope you are feeling better. I also have some allergies and I cant breath through my nose, so I know what you are going through. I am just avoiding taking any medication, no even Tylenol for the headaches…

AFM – I am feeling much better today. Yesterday I went to church, went out for lunch, went shopping, cooked, I did so many things. Its nice to fee good again!
The bad news is that none of my embryos made it to freeze. I had 4 left, and on day 5 there was only 1 blast, but it wasn’t good enough for freezing.. Is it normal to have nothing to freeze? Now I am worried about the quality of the 2 embryos we transferred on day 3. One was 10 cell (is that even normal? ) and one was 8 cell.

I am also worried that because I am feeling better, I am not pregnant ☹ Beta will be on 8/7. This will be a long week, but I am praying so hard for a BFP.

Kynlee-I don't dye my hair but I have heard that you should not dye your hair during pregnancy, especially early in pregnancy. I think that late in pregnancy there are some things you can use to dye your roots but I'm not sure. I would rrconend you ask your doctor first. I definately would not dye my hair now. Also, about the Benadryl, my RE did not want me using anything other than Tylenol for pain or headaches and Zofran for nausea early on in the pregnancy. Remember that this is the most critical time in your pregnancy and in the baby's development. Later on they will allow you to take a few more things if your sick but I wouldn't risk anything now.

Leora - Yay!!!!!! I just knew it. Once you said heartbeat I just had a feeling that little bean was sticking. Especially since you have a history of bleeds anyway. I know you're not out of the woods yet so you'll continue to be in my thoughts.

Kynlee - I highlighted my hair during the first trimester and throughout my pregnancy both this time and with my perfectly healthy DD. My hairdresser was very careful to keep the foils away from my scalp, especially during the first trimester. Your scalp is what you have to be cautious about - you can't absorb anything through your hair. You're going to get all kinds of tsk tsks about what you do during the pregnancy (caffeine, glass of wine, medication, food, etc. etc.). Go with what your doctor and your gut are comfortable with.

Patricia - thanks for asking how I'm feeling. I have my ups and downs. I went in for a prenatal massage on Saturday and the masseuse said I looked "completely full, in all directions," which I'm sure was a polite way of saying that my belly is huge. :) Interested in the growth scan this week - these babies seem awfully huge. I forget, when do you start stims or have you just started?

Lots of love to all the rest of you. Crash out. :)

Grr. Posted a much longer reply that doesn't seem to have gone up. Too big of a headache & too busy at work to re-type. Short AFM that I really, really need help with:

Just did something really stupid this morning and need advice. I am midway to my FET scheduled for 8/15/12, and changing out estrace patches every other day. This morning I was tired enough that I believed my watch when it said today was the 31st and switched up from 2 to 3 patches a day early. I took one off once I realized what I did, and plan to put 3 new ones on tomorrow. I'm afraid to call my RE and ask that they will cancel the cycle. :( Any thoughts?? I'm seriously not usually this flaky, but the lupron is just killing me this cycle. My head hurts, my body aches, I can't sleep, and my sex drive is tanked. It's only halfway through Monday and I am ready for the week to be over. :(

leiora- thats just amazing! so happy for you, you deserve it!

wondercat- I'm sure you will be fine, I accidentaly put on 2 patches instead of 4 and it was ok lol, I feel you on the lupron I'm finally off of it and feeling sooooo much better!

pcos- I never had any to freeze (except this cycle) and had 2 successful pregnancies. Rememeber they put in the best ones so if the leftover ones make it to freeze its a bonus. I know its hard not to analyze but you have to remember the ones that you put back in are the best ones!

kynlee- I didn't color my hair, but lots of women do and they are fine, its a personal choice I guess.

I'm all set for transfer on Friday, I'm getting anxious as this is the last try and I know if it doesn't work no more babies for me. Bittersweet, but of course I feel blessed with my two daughters.

pocos- I am the same way I havent took any tylenol I just deal with the headache lol.... As for the grades of your embies I dont know too much about that but it only takes one to happen so dont give up on hope I am praying for your BFP :)

wehavehope- I agree I am just riding these allergies out I waited to long and I dont want something to happen cause that is the 1st thing i would blame :( I am just resting an hoping I get rid of the allergies soon...

kerpupples- I would be dying my roots only so I guess I will wait the 9mths and be alittle gray lol... Sucks but it will all benefit when I get my baby in my arms :)

Wondercat- I dont do patches but I would think since you up'd it and didnt down that it should be fine as a one time thing... Dont stress, since you took it off when you noticed it wasnt on for a full day I would say its fine... If anything it gave you alittle more then needed but more is better then less... :)

Dys24- Good luck Fri :) And I think I will pass on dyingmy hair since I if I had to question it my gut must be telling me not to...

Leora – AMAZING NEWS!! This is your time and you soooo deserve it!! The u/s pic is just awesome :D

Always – Congrats on your positive beta!! Can’t wait to see your doubling digets!

Kynlee – I don not know exactly how long I will be on the progesterone and estrace, but I think around 8- 10 weeks, then they start to slowly take me off. I was going to ask the same thing about the hair color thing, I have an app on Friday. My friend (who has the same hair dresser as me) told me that the hairdresser said a lot of people do it, but she wouldn’t. Did you call your OB yet?

Kay – I get bloated too, sometimes even up under my ribs! Other than that how are you feeling?

Pocos – Glad you are feeling better! I think feeling good is a postive thing.

Dys – Friday will be here before you know it! Are you done with the Lupron yet?

Ninde – How are you feeling? I know you said you had arthritis, can you take anything when it is bothering you? How are you hanging in with the down regulation?

Tiger – YAY on being 5 weeks! That is great you get another beta. Reassurance is always wonderful for worriers like us.

Blue – When will be your first u/s for a follie check?

AFM – u/s tomorrow night! I am nervous…. Other than that doing ok. A bit crampy today, which I haven’t really been at all and I was nauseas this morning actually starting gagging while making the bed. I just hope everything is good tomorrow!

kynlee - What allergies do you have? I am allergic to pretty much everything - animals, plants, foods. My allergist gave me a nose spray that is OK for pregnancy because he knew I would be doing the FET cycle, but I can't remember now what it is! Sadly, I just take it every morning and don't think about it any more. :)

wondercat- This is my first year with allergies I think its the pollen, I have had 4 nasal and throat infections... and each time in between it started from allergie symptoms the Dr said I could be getting it from that... I was taking CVS Zyrtec till I had my transfer and now its back again so I am just dealing with it for now... :(
