December 2009 Mommies

Announcement of pregnancy and birth following assisted reproductive treatment.

Postby ianmichael3 » Fri Apr 24, 2009 1:41 pm

Yahooo!!! A guy, girls! YAY! Now we can bounce things off of you, Davidjohn, before we explode on our DH!!! :)

Every pregnancy is so different, I think you'll hear all kinds of different things from each of us! All of my symptoms come and go, which absolutely freaks me out b/c I'm afraid of miscarriage if I have no symptoms!!

Welcome baylorbear! And congrats!

Tara: we waited until we heard and saw the heartbeat and got a measurement on the little bean- we're just now telling everyone and I'm 8 weeks and 2 days. I don't think we're ever really out of the woods, as far as possible miscarriage, but it took me so long to get here, the baby and I deserve to be happy about this! So we decided to share!

AIMS: It was 168! They said it was very nice and strong- Halleluiah! :)
Cynthia: Although the wait is irksome, I'm happy to be able to say I'm pregnant and am waiting to actually see the ob/gyn- but still always afraid, you know??

I cannot believe how many symptoms I'm having, YIKES. :shock:

I am only 8 weeks and it seems like I shouldn't be 'sprouting' out of my regular clothes!

XOXO-

Welcome baylorbear and davidjohn!

Tara somehow I missed your post...I think we posted around the same time. I too was wondering when everyone was announcing to friends and family. I think most of my family will find out this weekend when they don't see a drink in my hand, LOL! So sad that it's such a tell tell sign, but what can I say, my family are drinkers :wink: I think I'll hold off on friends and coworkers until after the u/s. I'd prefer to never tell the coworkers but I guess that won't happen :lol: I hate all of the attention and unsolicited advice (I'm witnessing it with my pregnant coworker right now). I did want to wait until I got through the 1st trimester, but I'm sure it will be out to everyone by then. But I'm with you ianmichael, I'm going to be happy and leave everything else up to God.

Well I'm off to the lake for some fishing :D Hope everyone has a great weekend!! :)

Hello Ladies and Gents, I just got my second beta back and it was 168. Just two points shy of doubling within 48 hours, so the RE said he was pleased. Hopefully I be able to breath a little easier this weekend. Will catch up soon, actually have work to get done today :-)

To all... I just got the results back from my 3rd beta, and it only rose to 221 from 168. I'm afraid things are not looking good for me. I wish I could stay positive, but I am just so sad at the possibility of losing another baby. I am trying very hard not to completely lose it here at work, but it is getting harder by the minute.

heartbeat

Postby Tara2009 » Mon Apr 27, 2009 9:57 pm

Hello all,

Hope you all had a great weekend. I had my second ultrasound today and saw a healthy heart beat. I was hoping a second sac would be hiding somewhere :-) But no, its a singleton. RE said everything looks good and released me to OB. My official due date is December 7. Finally I can tell my family!

Tara.

Tara - Congrats on seeing the heartbeat!

Ian - I've been really really nauseous but not throwing up yet. Nothing taste good to me. My family doctor won't refill my acid reflux meds until I'm farther along so heartburn is killing me. The nurses at midwest said my acid reflux meds were fine to take but have to convince the family doctor.

Baylorbear - Try to stay postive. What did your RE say about your numbers?

Trying - Good luck on Friday! Let us know how it goes.

AFM - Not much going on except nauseous, sore boobs, and really bad heartburn.

Hi ladies and gent. baylorbear, I'm praying that things turn around for you. Do you have another beta or u/s coming up soon?

Trying that is an awesome number!!! Only a few more days until your u/s :D

Tara - Congratulations!

ianmichael - hope you are feeling better :cry:

AFM, not much going on. I had a little spotting over the weekend (very very light) and some twinges here and there. I've been super tired and eating up everything in site :lol: . Today I almost gagged trying to take my prenatal vitamin...those things are getting harder and harder to take. And of course I'm still just waiting for my first u/s. 2 more weeks to go!

RE has me going in for bloodwork again tomorrow, which will be 48 hours from the last beta. The nurse told me that the Dr. was concerned and asked me to repeat my labs, so I am of course going to be a complete nutcase until then. I'm just so tired of being sad and angry all the time because of the difficulty we have had in having a baby. There is a teeny-tiny part of me that hopes the lab made a mistake, but I am also a realist, so the large part of me is preparing for the worst. Do any of you know if I will start bleeding even if I'm still on the Estradiol and Progesterone. I just wonder if these drugs are delaying the inevitable.

Okay, now I am thoroughly confused... I just got my progesterone and estradiol numbers back from Monday, both of which went up significantly. The nurse said that it appears that my body is trying support the pregnancy, etc. I am trying not to give up hope, but I am struggling.

Hello:

Sorry I've been MIA. I was so busy and tired at the same time.

baylorbear33, don't give up hope. When the level of progesterone and estradiol go up is a very good sign. My nurse told me that in my 2WW. Stay positive so your baby feel your love, try to relax.

Tara - Congrats on the HB

Aims - Hope you feel better.

AFM - I went to my u/s today. ITS A SIGLETON. I am so happy. We heard the heartbeat, it was 105 bpm, and measure exactly 6week 1 day. Now I feel it's real. And my due date is December 23.

Hugs for everyone.
