I just had to jump on tonight to read everyone's updates lol I couldn't possibly stay more then a few days you know too much changes at a moment notice.

Gina! So great to hear from you tonight. I agree just because you presently live in Germany doesn't mean they leave you out of family stuff, you should be a part of everything that happens no matter what. Speaking of family, what's the latest news on coming home? You mentioned consultation with RE scheduled around Feb. that's 6 months away but not sure if you meant in Georgia? Let me tell you I found a note I had wrote to my RE from the day we had our very first visit (inside my foyer table and I never mailed it it was date 6/2011) so what I'm saying time really does fly by!

Ninde- Sounds like you had a rough day, hopefully it's only hormonal but then again sometimes you just want to knock someone out! Yes I firmly believe faith gets us through rough patches and I really believe good things are going to be happening soon! Dh led a forum for the Republican Party last night and surprisingly the President of the college was there. After it was all over, he came over and shook dh's hand telling him he did a good job with everything. Dh wants to really make an impression so when he gets the exit review he can not only say but show how it would be a HUGE mistake to let him go. I admire his ambition and his attitude going into his final year. Besides working at the colllege, dh has a part-time gig with a storage unit, their assistant manager just put in her 2ww so this means since they aren't hiring- dh will pick up additional hours (helping us make the upcoming IVF loan payment). So we are revisiting IVF maybe this Fall? My work is busy but glad it helps time pass as we figure out dh's situation but we have a year here at least the way things are looking. Thinking we might try something?

Kynlee- I LOVE your ticker, it's adorable! I love reading scripture with you every night for the month of August, it's very encouraging. Faith brings newfound hope and without it I would be completely lost.

Leora- Thinking of you tonight.

sorry I've been so absent - I'm just still so nervous. With my first miscarriage 2 years ago, we had bad news at 5 weeks (gestational sac was collapsing), great news at 6 weeks (perfect baby and heartbeat) and then bad news at 7 weeks (hb was slow and baby hadn't grown enough) and then horrible news at 8 weeks (no hb, baby hadn't grown).

I'm soooooo nervous about my scan on Tuesday! I'll be 8w4d. I really hope things still look good!

I'm still feeling very pregnant (throwing up, exhausted, sore breasts), but I had all those symptoms with that first miscarriage too (until my beta went down).

I really really really hope this is my baby - but I'm so nervous!

There is such great news on this board - it's so exciting! I can't wait to see all the baby pictures in 8 months or so! :D

Leora, I pray all is fine on Tuesday. Myself and everyone else will be on pins and needles waiting along with you.

Kynlee, thank you. Yes a lot of jealous runs through most of my families blood. It is terrible. Thanks on my 2013 cycle! We cannot wait! Hope I hear from him this coming week.

Chrisy, forgot to add we will do IVF in Atlanta. :) Monday DH does another part of his physical before doing the VA part, so we'll stop by for the plan tickets and see if we can get them now. They said Aug 1st but you never know in the military! lol. How are doing?

I am sure it isnt anything but figured I see if any of you had this before, today I was at the store and went pee noticed some thin soft reddish-clear tissue in the toilet (sorry if tmi) it was only a few of them very small and no cramps and no blood when I wiped... I called my RE and the on call DR calle dme back and said if there isnt blood on a pad that it could be nothing to just take it easy and call if any of the symptoms appear... Its been a few hours and now nothing... Anyone seen this before?

Kynlee – Thanks for the encouragement! It’s good that you called your doctor and it’s nothing serious. Now you can relax and enjoy the rest of the weekend! Take it easy!

To_have_fun – Thanks for the encouragement! I am trying to stay positive 

WeHaveHope – Thanks for the prayers and the hug. I feel very lonely here, my family and friends are all in Brazil, so this board helps me a lot.

Kerpupples – Thank you for the encouraging words. 

LauraN – Thanks for the encouragement!

Mamade X – Thank you for the encouragement! I am sure everything is ok with your bean! Are you feeling better?

Dys24 – Congrats PUPO!!

Ninde – Thanks for the encouragement! I really need to try the brain boosting breakfast! I am going nuts during the 2ww, maybe that will help me!

Tiger – Thanks and congrats on your final beta!! Yay! I am not going to POAS again. I will wait for the beta. Its so much pain in case its negative… I’d rather wait and suffer only once, instead of suffering everyday (in case the hpt is negative)…
WaitingKay – Thanks for sharing your story – it really encouraged me! I hope you are feeling better. My bloating is completely gone and that’s what is letting me so worried… At least the bloating means good news, even though its so painful 

Gina – So nice that you are planning everything for 2013! That’s so exciting. Have you done IVF before?

Leora – I will be praying for you! Everything will be fine 

AFM – I haven’t POAS anymore. If it is negative, I will be devastated but with hopes that the blood test will be positive… So I decided that if it is to suffer, I will suffer only once. The blood test is on Tuesday (8/7). I am feeling fine now, the bloating is gone, so I am wondering if that means I am not pregnant… Trying to stay positive but its so hard. I am so anxious that I have a headache and my shoulders are tense and in pain. It is so sad to live in another country far from your family and friends and not be able to build your own family. I have a wonderful husband but after almost 6 years of marriage, we can’t wait to have children to have a complete family. I am praying so hard that God will bless us with kids someday.

Kynlee - just dropping in to let you to know that it happened to me too - 3 times and days apart and nothing was wrong. It is sometimes hard to believe that it is old tissue or blood because it is so long after retrieval and transfervbutit happens often. Since your RE said not to worry - that's what you should do :-)

Kay – exactly! I did get a little nausea yesterday, but then I ate and felt better…weird.

Kynlee – my dh is the same way! He thinks it’s way to early…I’m telling friends anyway. I think you did the right thing, I would have done the same thing, no need to chance putting yourself in a bad situation (foot and mouth thing). That is so exciting that you were able to tell your family!! How fun!! Remember, brown is okay! Try and relax…I know that is silly of me to even say. Do something relaxing for yourself!

Dys – awesome! So exciting! That’s interesting about your FET, and why you would test earlier, because your embryos are more mature! So awesome! Glad we have another POAS person! Can’t wait for your BFP!

Leora – so good to hear from you! I can totally understand why you are nervous, I hope I can be here for you and send you all the positive vibes possible! I just know everything is going to be great at your next U/S!!

Pocos – We will all be with you here on 8/7. This journey is so hard and I can feel your pain in your words, but please try and stay positive. I’m crossing everything I can for a positive test on 8/7!!

AFM: It’s family day! I just can’t wait! I picked up the cupcakes from the bakery yesterday and there were a ton of people there. The owner said, “can I ask about the date?” I just said, sorry, no. Then I could tell she felt bad for asking. If there wouldn’t have been so many people in there, I would have said something, but it just seemed awkward! I went to shiatsu yesterday for the 2nd time and it was amazing! I just love it! Will let you know how the dinner goes tonight!

Kynlee- rest this weekend, stay off ur feet as much as u can. Brown is old blood!

Tiger-have fun today! How r u feeling?

Pocos- dont lose hope! I'll be thinking about you on Tuesday.

Leora- glad to hear from you! Tuesday will be great! Tuesday is a day many of us will be seeing Re and we will all get good news!!!!

Dys24-congrats on being PUPO!!!!!

Blue- that's good news!

Waiting- I'm bloated too! When u have ur us how far along will u be? I think ur about 2 weeks farther than me.

Mad- I can't believe how many of us will be seeing Re on Tuesday!

AFM- still really bloated, tired and in the potty several times a day! Tuesday will be 4th beta. I haven't had bw since Thursday so it's kind of nerve wracking with my history, I think I will be asking for a 5th beta before u/s on 8/16!!! Hope all is well! Tuesday is a big day for many of us seeing RE! Today i feel not a sick when I wake up, is this a bad sign?

Tiger - I can't wait to hear how it goes today with your family and those cupcakes...I felt a little for the kind woman at the bakery, any chance you'll go back there with a belly and let her know what it was all about? I love baking myself maybe this is why I care :? Kynlee had a good idea, if you can post us a pic of the cupcakes :D

POCOS - glad my POAS story helped, please don't loose up hope yet, you can start bloating a week after a positive beta not that this in itself is something to look forward to...

Always - awesome! When's your beta? I had 3dt July 12th.

Kynlee - Wow! I can't believe your sister knows already, but it's wonderful you are already surrounded with family's love and support and especially everyone's joy with you being pregnant!!! Don't worry about the bits of tissue, I passed a bit when I was 7 weeks something and when I was 10 weeks something. It didn't mean a thing and I wasn't even advised to come for an U/S, though I chose to anyhow and it relaxed me every time :)

Afraid before Wednesday. DH too.
