We have hope – wow, that just made me cry. You are so right, but it’s so sad that for all of us this journey has been so hard, but I believe we all grow, learn patience, and if we can handle it, end up stronger in the long run. Sometimes when I reflect, I wonder how I’ve been so strong, how I’ve made so many tough decisions, and how I’ve truly had to make sacrifices and determine what is truly important. Thanks for sharing this.
Ninde – That sounds normal to me. 14mm is not too big. I only stimmed for 8 days each cycle, so after four days, mine were about 14mm as well. They grow 1-2 mm per day, so I would anticipate another 4 days for you! I think you are doing great and you’re right, it’s even better that they are all growing consistently!
Hopethisworks – Congrats! Are you going to find out the sex?
LauraN – AWESOME NEWS!! 35 BIG ONES! CAN’T WAIT TO HEAR THE FERT REPORT!!
Madame X – Congrats my friend! So exciting!! What a wonderful HB!
DYS – see!!! I knew you were okay! Your second beta was awesome! What a great doubling time. Will they see you again in 2 days?
AFM: Thank you to everyone that wished me luck today. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all of the support. It means the world to me! We had one perfect little baby measuring at 7w1day on the U/S! I was very very happy! HB is 130…thinking that could mean boy? Then, there was a second sac, that was not doing well and did not have a HB, so the second embryo did implant, measured at 5w6days, but then stopped growing. I’m so so very excited to have one perfect baby, but must admit that I’m grieving the loss of the second one. I feel like I should be only grateful, but it makes me sad that the second one tried to make it and didn’t succeed. I feel like each step of the way, there’s always a new challenge. Now, I’m so nervous for the one baby that we do have…what if that one stops! What happened to the other one? I just feel a little lost and confused. I know that so many of you have been through tough situations, so I’m looking for clarity. Anyone else go through this? Should I be even more nervous now? It’s hard to be excited for this now and I feel even further away from success…very confused.
