Hi girls!!! I swear I havent' fallen off the planet. I have been reading just not posting. We are now at week 16. I need to share this with somebody bc DH wants to wait until his mom's birthday to tell his parents the sex of the baby, but I know I can tell you ladies it is a BOY & the name will be Grayson Anthony. The name covers DH, his dad, and mine . We are going to do a cake with blue on the inside for his mom's birthday on the 22nd. Anyways, that is about it on my end just coasting right along.

Leora- BIG HUGE CONGRATS to you & David. I am so happy for you both.

Leora - Sooo happy for you! You are an inspiration for me, to keep trying.

AFM - BFN confirmed by blood test today. At least I already cried so much already that I am numb now (at work).
Thank you ladies for all the kind words. This is such a difficult road. Yesterday I talked to a friend that had infertility treatments for 8 years and that gave me some hope to try again. She has a perfect baby girl now, so its all worth at the end.

Hello Lovely Ladies!

I’m so sorry that I haven’t responded the past few days! BUT, the cupcake reveal was a huge success! It was great, my sister knew right away and started crying…my mom was a bit confused…my step dad was like, so what’s the date for? He didn’t get it at all…it was super funny. I said, I don’t know, what do you think the date is for…long pause…still not getting it, and then I said, we’re pregnant! It was great. Everyone was very excited so it was just the reaction I was hoping for! Thank you for all of you asking!!

Kynlee – I’m glad you told your sister as well. It’s so important to have the support that you need!

Always – I’m feeling great! The sickness is starting, I haven’t been throwing up, just a little nauseus in the morning! It gets better throughout the day. I can deal with this, so I’m just hoping it doesn’t get worse! How are you? AWESOME BETA!!! CONGRATS!!

Kay – you are so right. What a great idea. I’ll have to go back in there in a few months and tell her! I’m planning on doing a gender reveal, so I will get the cake from her as well  She would like that, I think.

Ninde – I’m feeling for you with the headaches! I had bad headaches too. Ugh. So sorry for you! But, you’re getting so close!!!

Blueeye – I saw the dark knight on Sunday as well! It was awesome! I agree with you! Can’t wait for your E/R tomorrow!!! How exciting!

Madame X – awesome news! Can’t wait to hear about the U/s!!

Pocos – words do not express how sorry I am for you right now. I completely understand. I went through 8 IUI’s and finally on the 3rd IVF we were successful. I know you have been through 2 IVF cycles, but I can’t tell you how many women, including myself, have had a long and difficult journey. I know right now, you are in so much pain, it’s difficult to think about the future. Take the time you need to mourn this loss. It is a loss and it’s okay to cry and scream. Then, when you’ve had a bit of time to think, you can reassess. This process tested me so many times. Each time I received bad news, I didn’t even know where to begin. It felt so outside of my control and I didn’t understand why this was happening to us and it seemed so far out of reach. It took so much strength to move forward. I am sending you a giant hug and sending you all the strength possible so that, if you choose, you can continue this journey. It’s cruel, it’s unfair, and it doesn’t make sense. I’m so sorry. Ps. Stop buying the clothes. You don’t have to be polite. It’s okay to know what we can and cannot handle. I had to stop attending baby showers for awhile. I just couldn’t handle it and I didn’t care what other people thought, I had to do it for myself.

Leora – Yeah! AWESOME NEWS!

AFM: How am I going to wait another week for an U/s…this is pure torture!

Hi ladies

Tiger that's lovely I'm glad it went so well

Fv: thank you. And how is Samuel?

Nicole: hope it goes so well, you ha e been Incredible with all you ha e do e recent.

AFM: Just out of baselinescan.. Lining good. Ready to go tonight. Amazing though when u hear anything different. Same nurse as last time who always has problems finding my left ovary. I think I make her nervous. Well she said "I'll just measure those follicles, we don't want them over 10 when we are starting. I'm like "follicles, what follicles, I shouldn't have follicles!!" Apparently there are always follicles and its fine, mine are"playing ball"!!!

I called my RE to discuss my u/s results from yesterday. He had already seen them (since he's the referring doctor, the results are emailed to him too). He's really happy for us and wishes us all the best. He said I should keep in touch with how things work out, and bring the baby to meet him a few months.

He's such a nice, decent guy - thank goodness. Now I have to find an OB I like! Bigger challenge :D I have an appt on Monday with a new high risk OB and an u/s a week from Friday.

Nicole - Good luck today at ER! I'm stalking for an update!

Patricia - hurray for being on track to start! I hope this is *the one* for you!

MadameX - didn't you also have an u/s yesterday? How did it go?

Pocos - I'm so sorry for your BFN. That sucks so much. I'm sorry.

Tiger - congrats on telling your family! That's so much fun, no? How far along will you be for your u/s next week?

Lori - betas look awesome! Can't wait for your u/s results!

Amanda - so happy to see you so far along and doing so well! I can't believe you can keep the sex of the baby secret for so long! We walked out of the u/s room and I immediately called my mom to tell her when we found out that our last pregnancy was 2 boys :D

I spoke with a nurse yesterday who told me that the bloating is probably ohss and nothing to do with my level of progestrone which is over 250? What do u guys think? Is this bad for the pregnancy? When will ohss resolve?
