"PINK" is my color too...We are having a baby girl...very excited....

Its been a roller coaster for this forum. Looking at all those IVF ads its seems it would be a breeze!!....only those who go through it know!!!

My prayers are with all who joined this forum and then had losses. Having had many experiences with losses I know how it feels. Be strong and have faith in the lord.

Good wishes to all who are moving on forward.

Did you ladies have a "maternal instinct" or feeling that you were having a girl? I've had the boy vibe since we found out were were pregnant . . . Intelligender or not, I still think he's a boy :D

only time will tell . . . :D

Our little girl does have Down's. Her heart defect is severe and we will need to start meeting with the cardiologist within the next month. In addition to other medical problems she could encounter, there is an increased risk of miscarriage and stillbirth. Needless to say, we are heartbroken. She's not even here and there is so much facing her already.

Defttonesmo - I knew from the very beginning she was a girl, just as I knew our first child was a boy. Moms know.

Cheryl: So sorry to hear about the journey ahead . . . you guys are in my thoughts :)

How's everyone feeling? Got that second trimester burst of energy? I am feeling a little more energetic and a lot more hungry . . . I still have a very sensitive gag reflex though . . . brushing my teeth is a chore, as is coughing =) Had my AFP blood test today and get the results next week . . .

Have a nice, peaceful weekend :D

Cheryl - I am so sorry to hear this but hope that it turns out not as bad as the doctors say. Sometimes we do not know everything and things happen for a reason. She will probably be the most amazing little girl. My thoughts are with you and your family.

May - Congratulations on your little girl. It really does seem that there are many girls in here. Even most of the people I know around me that are pregnant are having girls. Maybe 2010 will be the girl year.

AFM - I had a little scare last week when my OBGyn told me that I had a staph infection, one resistant to antibiotics. Hence, he was worried about my pneumonia (no longer bronchitis) being untreatable. He was all flustered and I got quite hysterical after doing some more research online. He then proceeded to tell me that according to German CDC guidelines, he could no longer treat me unless I made special appointments when no one was in the office to ensure I would not infect anyone else. I called my primary care physician and he was so infuriated with my OBGyn for creating such a panic. he says that these things are all around us and I could have just wiped my nose and had it passing through, not as an infection, as the antibiotic I am taking for the cough has clearly made a difference. I am to do the test again next Wednesday, so wish me luck. If I do have it, the hospitals in Germany are not very friendly in that you get quaranteened during birth, no choices, no visits to select the proper clinic, nothing. It is a US born infection and 70% of people supposedly have it in the US, but in Germany only 20% so they are very cuatious not to spread it. I just do not get why I can go to work if it is this highly infectious.

On another note, hoping our baby will cooperate on December 29th for the gender determination. my DH is bursting because he is so eager to find out.

Hope everyone had a great weekend . . . Had a little scare myself . . . I have a slight case of asthma and have been using an inhaler . . . however, since I found out I was pregnant, the inhaler I cherished was banished sicne it wasn't healthy for baby . . . over the weekend, had a nasty case of bronchitis and was coughing and wheezing . . . made it really hard to breathe too . . . kinda scary . . . long story short, my doc gave me some antibiotics and told me to use the inhaler once to open my airways . . . woke up this morning feeling like a million bucks =) I considered going to work today, but dh said, "It's not just you anymore. You have to think of baby too." Oh, riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight . . . hence, I'm at home in my Pj's, resting away . . .

Have a great weekn everyone :D

Hi Ladies,
My heart goes out to all of us on the board who have gotten their hearts broken. We started off so strong at first and everyone on here is totally amazing. We all deserve to have babies and I know that we would all be such great mommies. I just hope that those who have lost can find some peace and maybe eventually keep trying for your bundle of joy that you so deserve and will be blessed to have you as a mom.

To those of us who are still carrying, I realize that it's been a tremendously hard and scary few weeks, seeing what others are going through and our hearts have been breaking for them. It's hard to come on here and see so much sadness.

I want you all to know how important you guys all are to me. I have never been on a message board before this and when I found you guys, I felt like I had a place to go where people were going through the same things. Your support, suggestions/advice, and encouragement has carried me through this pregnancy so far and I thank you for that. Lets try to move forward and stay positive and continue to support one another!

ladies:

i know that what has happened to gi, fitz, cheryl, and me make it very scary for you all. don't be scared! be encouraged that this it YOU and your families time! stay in the moment and cherish it b/c you all deserve every happiness you receive from being able to have successful pregnancies. remember this is your time and don't be afraid to bask in the happiness, hopefulness, and excitement that pregnancy brings.

i really believe that God has a way of taking care of us even when it hurts and even when we don't want help. our losses, even though devastating, are "blessings" from God. they are just different kinds of blessings then we're used to getting, and it may take us a long time to see how our losses are blessings; but we will. we just have a different journey than we thought and we will be stronger and wiser b/c of our experience.

IVF is only for the strongest of women and their families. we are all blessed that we exist in a time where there is even a possibility of pregnancy despite our or our dh's different health issues. stay hopeful!

love,

mykel

My dear May-Mom friends,

First, let me thank all of you for your support during this time.

I just wanted to echo Mjay's words. Please don't let our losses get you down. I have our first little IVF miracle taking his nap now. We may have lost our little girl, but we still feel so blessed! It took 3 IVF's for our DS, and another FET and IVF for our lost little girl. I don't regret one moment and would do it all again in a breath.

Each of us bear so much to go through the IVF process - it's toll on us physically and emotionally that when we get pregnant, nothing should get in the way of the shear joy of pregnancy and motherhood. MJAY - the last paragraph brought me to tears. So true...so true.

My prayers are with us all - that those who have lost will be blessed, and those pregnant may not know any further heartache.

Merry Christmas to you all - just think what your next Christmas will be like with your DS/DDs!
