The pregnancy is all I think about...every time I sit down to do my work, I jump to read the boards, or research pregnancy, or what we'll need for twins, then I realize I'm just spinning my wheels...

:( :( :( :( still no morning sickness......I know I should be pleased but I just want to be sick, just so I can feel a bit pregnant :evil: :evil:

I've felt a wee bit tired, well not so much tired but a bit weary, boobs still a bit sore

BUT I JUST WANT TO THROW UP....PLEEEAAASE!

(Refer me back to this message if I ever complain later please girls!)

Its weird, I really don't know what I should be doing now, I know all the ins and outs of going through IVF, but I don't know the 1st thing about what I should be doing now I'm finally pregnant.....HEY, I'M PREGNANT....HOW ABOUT THAT!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: I think I need to get some books, I ate an egg sandwich yesterday, then realised it would have mayonnaise, then I had salmon strudel for dinner, which was coated in cream cheese, I am doing it all wrong, I'll have to concentrate a bit more. I am taking Folic Acid, but not sure what else I should have!

I WANT A BOY!! I have commissioned a beautiful amethyst ring, which I have just collected, the idea being that if I have a girl she would be called Amy and the ring would become hers in years to come.....BUT if I have a boy....I can keep the GORGEOUS ring myself :D I was actually hoping for twins, then I could have commisioned another ring in Emerald (Emma) or Ruby......maybe I should become an IVF Junkie :!:

Now for a personal bit...can someone tell me, is it safe to have a bikini wax at the moment? if I dont get sorted soon, I will need to put it in plaits! :shock: :roll:

Hi all

I can see we are all moving over to this thread........I will continue to jump back and forth i am not sure if everyone is going to move over.... Seems like we have lots of TWINS going on here...... Is everyone going to find out the sex of the babies?? I most certainly am i need to prepare the bedroom I am too much of a neat freak to wait till last minute to get rooms ready... I need everything to be just so when they get here... Looks like they may be moving my delivery date to march being that I am having twins..Was anyone else told the same? How is everyone feeling i am still tired and sick for the most part of the day but i must admit i think its getting a little better tomm I hit the 8 week mark i cant belive it ...ONWARD TO MONTH 3 WOOHOO....................

Have a great day everyone.......

hello everyone,

I've moving over from May and look forward to meeting all you April ladies!!

WC, your post could have been written by me - this pregnancy thing is completely taking over my life - I can't think about anything else, which is making the wait for the U/S date very long! still another 8 days!!

Mandy - you're mail made me laugh - I was also desperate for morning sickness but I think in the last 2 days I regret my yearning - I now feel like I've been on a massive drinking bender and am completely hung over - I am dehydrated, feel sick and am craving the same crappy carbs you crave when you are suffering from the hang over from hell. I wouldn't mind but I haven't had a drink in weeks!!

I sent an embarrasing email to my clinic nurse yesterday asking her if I would know if I would miscarry. I knew it sounded irrational and paranoid but I didn't know whether all the drugs I'm on would hide it. I'm on estrogen patches and suppositories plus progesterone injections (2ml) AND suppositories twice daily... I'm practically rattling! anyway, she assured me that I would know and told me to stop worrying or I'd end up in the nut house. Can I ask is everyone else on so many hormones?

Can someone tell me how to make a ticker? I've been very jealous of all the women who've had them on count down and now I'm finally joining them I want to display it.

Happy Thursday everyone

Rebecca XXX

Rebecca

to make a ticker go to TICKERFACTORY.COM And just follow the directions is pretty easy if you have any issues let me know and i will walk you through it.... I too am also ill i have mastered this whole mornng sickness thing i start feeling ill around 1pm and it lasts till night time............uuuuggggghhhhhhhhh.... I do not vomit i just feel sick all day..... The carbs help belive it or not thats why you crave them.... You need to eat all day 6 small meals this way your belly always has something in it I find it to be worse on a empty tummy.... my dr advised me to eat carbs and protien together and i have to say it helps i have been eating wheat crackers with chedder cheese and it helps........ so good luck i know how you feel I am told it gets better after the 1st trimester i will let you know.......................

Mandy...the old 'be careful what you wish for' ... you should feel lucky you are not sick! I'm not sick (yet) and feel so fortunate...M/S sounds yukky! That said, I bought preggie pops tonight "JUST IN CASE" ha. optimist? no.

I am dying to know the leg wax thing as well...I wore a dress today and my oh my, my hair is very long :lol: :lol:

Oh my...I can't remember what else I was going to write...oh, dear!

Hi Ladies...

OK, I'm just sick and FAT!!! I'm not fat from eating too much either so it kind of makes me mad!!! My belly looks 4 months pregnant and I'm constipated to boot (after a while I think even the prune juice doesn't help). I bought all good (most;ly organic too) foods today. I am trying to eat legumes (ooh, very french...) and whole wheats and veggies and fruits but I have to say that whole wheat saltines and low fat ice cream (the chocolate kind and I don't even LIKE chocolate) have been my favorites. I just feel over all sick to my stomach and I still have that darn metal mouth (and no, I do not wear braces :? )

OK, let's see... I'm on .4cc delestrogen IM 2x week and 1cc IM of PIO every night (I put in a teeney more than 1cc since that what I started doing in the beginning and my RE has been checking my bloods based on that). I am also tired but find that I have so much to do that I have no time to rest until after 7pm and then I'm all wound up so I am still awake at 9pm.

I try not to think about being pregnant because I have too much to do before the babies come and as fast as my life has whizzed by so far I KNOW I am in for a race.

On another note, I saw a really cute Graco twin bassinet/play pen thingy on the internet today. I guess Ihave to start thinking about two of everything. I figure if I start collecting diapers now I MAY have collected enough for about 2months by the time the babies come. OOOHHH, I don't know HOW on earth we'll manage two... but we will.

You know, sometimes I feel like a fraud because I don't want to tell anyone we did IVF and only ONE friend knows and so when I talk to all my other friends as well as my family I sometimes feel like a liar but I do not want to tell my children so I think it is only fair that others do not know as well. Anyone have a point of view? Anyone not going to tell for whatever the reason?

Well, I am tired. Guess a look around a bit more here and then hit the hay.

Love Yas,

Cocoa

Lisa, when did your M/S start? I feel for you!!! I crave carbs, which is why I'm gaining weight...but possibly it's stopping me from being ill..oh boy...

Rebecca, when are you due?

Oh my...so forgetful...had a long list of things and catch ups for you ladies ... :oops:

OK: SCORE! I went to MIMI Maternity, out of curiosity and to see if there were sales...AND I found a pair of jeans that ... really are cute. Can't believe it! That said, the large? Sure, the waist will expand, but not sure about the thighs and bum area...but frankly, they're really sexy right now in the bum...very surprised. I think they were $20! (They have a designer line for $90 - $100, I'll do that later, maybe)...

I also bought Spanx MAMA...haha...and a bra extension...
Sigh, I think I'll be in pregnancy clothes by week 9...or at least, I'm going to start buying 'pieces'...
GOOD LUCK

Hi all,
Mandy, you DO NOT want to be sick, believe me , it is horrible, horrible feeling, my nausea has started about 3 days ago and i can't function, i almost threw up in the grocery store today while waiting in the cashier line. You and the other girls here are very fortunate not to have MS.
Woodcliff, you are stocking up on preg clothes already!!! But i think because of the twin factor your belly will definitely grow faster and it is so exciting!!! Have you though of the names yet?
I am still not showing at all, i mean nada, i kinda want to see a little belly though. I guess everybody is different. My friend did IVF and got pregnant with fraternal twins and she only put on about 28 or 30 pounds, i guess all of her weight was in the belly :D :D :D Her babies are so cute though!!!
Anyways,
I am going to suck on candied ginger again ( thanks woodcliff it helps a little bit) since i am feeling sick again :x
Vlada :D

at Mimi Maternity, I hear they're also sold at some of the kiddie toy stores...or any maternity type shop! (the saleswoman also tried to sell me a $38 bottle of cream for my belly..uh, NO!)...the preggie pops come in 'pop' form on a stick, or just hard candies...
