Lw: i am on the suppositories till my 10th week. After my 6th week, they reduced it from 3 times to 2 times a day.

Dogz/Tortilla: that is so awesome that u guys are exercising. I really want to but am so scared of something happening. I think i will wait till i'm in the 2nd trimester and then start yoga and walking.

Hope everyone else is doing well. We go back in for our last u/s tomorrow with the RE.

tortilla - We transfered 2, that was all we had out of 10 eggs. We did ICSI and 6 were mature and only 2 fertilized but I was glad I didnt have to make the decision to freeze. I am hoping for twins, my BETA had doubled every 24 hours, so I hope that is an indication but who knows... this is my 1st IVF and I am so confused with a lot of it.

I just had a thought. I wanted to know if any of you were on Facebook or Myspace. I would love to put a face to the screen-name.

Babiesgalore: Well wishes for your u/s tomorrow. I have me second u/s as well tomorrow afternoon.

Cressicaw: Well your Beta numbers sure look good! I would not be surprised at all by twins. :D

AFM:
My second u/s is tomorrow and I'm nervous again! AAAHHH! I hope everything is ok. I really want to hear another heartbeat, but sometimes I feel like I'm asking for too much. I just want to have at least ONE healthy baby. Is it wrong to want TWO? When I saw the other sac with the yolk it all made sense to me. I hope my little embie makes it.

They took me off the estradiol today because my level is finally high enough, but they are keeping me on endometrin because my prog is still a little low. It was 18 last week and went up to 19.6 today (yay, an increase, I don't care how small). Grrrrr. :roll:

Ladies, i had my final u/s at my RE. It was quite sad in a way. All the nurses gave me big hugs. If everything goes well, i will go back and take some cupcakes for them. they were all so awesome. My baby is doing great. Hb was at 172. The only thing that got me mad was that the RE on duty did not measure properly and said that the baby was around 8w and i was like that cannot be. She was like it is ok to be one week behind. Then when i was dressing i checked on the computer which they had left open and there she wrote 8w4d. WTH! Anyway i go to my OB on the 14th so hopefully everything will be right on target.

Dogz: yah for no more estradiol. Am sure u're prog is just fine. do not worry. as long as u're baby is doing great. that is all that matters.

totilla: good luck with the u/s today. i am also on FB.

Lw: hope the cramping has stopped hon.

hugs to everyone.

Cressicaw: I'm so happy to put a face with your story! Yay! How are you feeling today?

Babiesgalore: That is sad saying goodbye...but that just means you're another step closer to a healthy pregnancy. I would love to befriend you on Facebook if you want.

AFM: If anyone wants to be friends on Facebook you can look me up...my name is Tia aka tortillachip ;-) Will let you all know later how the u/s went. Why am I so damn nervous?!?!

Tortillachip: I'm so anxious to hear about your US

Thanks for all of your info girls. I was not able to make it to the bloodwork on time today so we rescheduled for Tuesday. I'll be almost 9 weeks then and maybe I'll feel more comfortable with it.
My RE doesn't wean you off and I'm just terrified something will go wrong!!!!!

I thought I'd start feeling BETTER as time went on, but I am getting worse. I've felt sicker the last three days than the entire 9 months. Sheesh.

Hope everyone is doing well today.

Hi all,
So I had my u/s and everything looks good with baby a, heartrate in 144 and baby b still has no heartbeat but the sac has tripled within the past week. The doc seemed a bit baffled. The doc said he would see certain signs if the baby wasn't progressing. For example, part of the sac would shrink or there would be some extra fluid inside the sac. He said the sac was farther away from the ultrasound instrument and that baby a was picking up most of the sound waves from the ultrasound. Therefore, harder to see. Who knows. I really don't know what to think of it. I will have another u/s next Friday and hopefully we'll know either way. I know there was a girl on here who didn't hear the second baby's heartbeat until 12 weeks. Crazy! I will try not to drive myself crazy. I may push up the u/s to Thursday because hubby will be gone next weekend.
Hope you are all well! XO

Tortillachip: I know that sometimes the heartrate is hard to find according to how the baby lies. I was under the impression that if the baby is growing than it should be fine?? I'll keep praying for you! I know this must be stressful for you.

tortilla - I didn't realize you were having twins, wow! Don't worry, if the baby is growing, I am sure things are perfect but I will say a prayer. How far along were you when they did the 1st u/s? I have to wait till 6 weeks and 4 days... ahhhh, I can't wait till Tuesday!

babies - how far along are you? Have they taked you off the Progestrone yet? Do you know when they typically do that, my butt is so sore!

Tortilla: hang in there hon. I think it is a good sign that the sac is growing. Lw is right. sometimes it is harder to find the h/b if the baby is not in the right position. saying lots of prayers for u for the next u/s. Lots of good vibes going u're way.

Cressi: i will be on progesterone for another week. Till i am around 10 weeks. But luckily this time i am doings suppositories v/s the shots. that was really painful last time. hang in there. it will soon be over.

Lw: don't worry about the weaning off. the REs know what they are doing so trust them. I have also been feeling really sick everytime i eat for the last one week but luckily no morning sickness. I just drink gingerale when i get like that and it helps.

Thanks girls for all your positivity! I'm not making a ticker yet until I know for sure. Go twin b, you can do it!!! :D

Cressicaw: Thanks for your prayers! I klnow it's really hard to wait until the u/s. It was worse than waiting for the Beta. My first u/s was at 6w6d.

LW: Thank you so much for you kind words and prayers. I'm sorry you've been feeling icky lately. Hope it subsides soon.

Babiesgalore: Thanks so much and for your prayers as well. I hope the little guy is just hiding! How are you feeling about going back to your OB?

HELP! NEED YOUR INPUT!!

About two weeks ago I had a light spotting one time after sex.
Last night I went to pee before going to bed and when I wiped I KNEW I was bleeding because I could just feel it. Sure enough when I looked at the paper there was a huge smear of red mucousy blood. I checked my underwear and there were a few dots. Of course, I couldn't sleep. This was more than just a tiny spotting. However, I stayed up and checked every little bit until 3:00 a.m. and never had anything else. Well, at church this morning when we stood up for our final hymn I felt a gush. I went to the bathroom and there was a lot of watery/white discharge with some brownish gray stuff????? I am not sure what to think. I've had cramping, but I've had that all along. I get it a LOT. A lot of times I can't even sleep because I've got cramping. They keep telling me it's a side effect of the progesterone. What do you all think. I told hubby I'm on self- perscribed bedrest! I hate that it happened on a holiday weekend. I'm going to call dr. Tuesday and let them know what's been going on.
Do you guys think this is ok? I only worry so much because just last week in a convo. my mom told me that when she had a miscarriage she spotted off and on for awhile for a week or two before finally loosing the baby. Please help me!
