I don't want to wait anymore and thought I would join all three of you so far!
I already know Sophie and Amanda and I will get to know you Anie as well.
As you can see, I just had my first two betas and found out yesterday that I will have my first US on Sept. 23rd. I can't wait to see the baby(ies)
I'm feeling pretty good, the symptoms are there every day and I'm enjoying feeling them as they remind me that everything is ok.
Anie, I have some AF type cramps quite a bit, I just figured it was baby making room down there, rearranging the furniture to its own liking!
According to this website http://ivf.ca/calcu.htm
, my EDD is May 17th.
As for work, I take care of private orchid collections for people in Miami. Keeping me quite busy.
My dilemma is to figure out what I CAN do and CAN NOT do. My AP really scared me yesterday and told me to take it easy, no lifting of anything heavy (like 5 lbs), no pulling hoses, no bending over, no standing for too long. Basically from her perspective, I'm out of a job! I walk a lot during my work, I transport orchids that can be heavy(wouldn't do it now), I have to pull hoses to fertilize the orchids and I use a gallon sprayer tank for spraying which means you also have to pump it. Anyway, I'm now scared to do anything!! It's terrible. I think more along the lines of taking it slow and see how it works out. I'm not sure that I believe that doing this would cause a miscarriage. A lot of conflicting info out there and it's hard to figure out what is right. Life has to go on, I can't stop doing everything!!
I'm originally from Brussels, Belgium and I've moved to the USA on Sept 11 1987. 21 years today!!
~ Soooo glad your US went well and that baby is doing just fine. What a relief for you as I know what you went through the first time.
I hope your MS is getting better. I deal with a great deal of burping and lately I feel like I will throw up sometimes. I burp so much that I wouldn't go out to dinner. They come unannounced and it's embarrassing.
I'm having company for 3 days next week and I don't know what I'll do as far as the burping.
~ So good to see you here, I'm so glad we keep going on the journey together!! Hope you get a date for your US soon. I wish they would make me take another beta before just to make sure. But RE seems really happy!
Have a wonderful day! Hugs!
