Hi Beth
To be honest i am wondering the same thing myself i have an almost 16month old son and am due to start stimming in 2 or 3 days and am wondering how i will manage ds during the tww and potentially longer hopefully longer i had bad Ohss when pregnant with DS and was barely able to breath let alone walk and am wondering how i will manage ds when he wants to be picked up. I know my mum will help out for as long as i need but she can't be here all hours. Hour old is your dd

hey jomae
have you found out anything? I don't know how I will manage. DD is 12 months old. I have planned for help to stay with us the first few days after the transfer, but after that, I don't know!
Good luck to you!

Hey Beth no i haven't officially yet but thinking about it i think as long as your not lifting weights that make you strain especially the tummy area we should be right if we were doing IVF and it happened naturally we'd be lifting away i guess if your not sure don't do it. i will let you know the official advice when i find out though. are you cycling yet

Hi All
I haven't posted on this thread for a while - nice to see you all here and congratulations on the pregnancy Vicki!

My DD Maia is just over 14 months now, and am finally just starting on an FET cycle. I have lots of things going on in my head right now - scared to believe its possibly going to work - scared that if it doesn't I'll need to go through IVF from scratch again! All coming flooding back!

eek!!

hi

totally new to this and my first ever post but wanted to say hi!

started TTC about 6 years ago - found out after a year - male factor infertilty. sure i dont need to describe the following few years. we now have our darling boy (just gone 1) through ICSI after 3 FET attempts (hyperstimulated 1st go so had lots of embies that gave us 3 attempts).

we are hoping to try for a lil bro or sis later this year. but after just supporting someone we know through the IVF process am beginning to feel a bit wobbly as all the feelings of fear and nerves are coming back. terrified i'll hyperstimulate again. and concerned about the effects on our little one if i handle the failures as bad as i did last time!

although i avoided all message boards etc. last time - this time would love to share it with you.

lots of luck to all you that have started your cycles
Helen

Smita, I bet the same is true with your two year old, lol.

Just think, if both embies take, you could be a twin mum too!

Hi all

Denise - GOOD LUCK - with the next round!

Smita - Hi - how are you - we were cycling at the same time - Oliver is two next week.

Helen - Welcome - I think it's always a worry that you are going to become too embroiled in the whole IVF/ conception thing again but I always try to remind myself how lucky I am to have one and that usually reminds me to focus on him and not let it take over my life!

I now have a scan booked in for 1st May - when I should be 6wks & 6 days - although was on a 30 day cycle so could show 6wks and 4 days - if indeed there is anything there at all!! Anyway. CHILL OUT VICTORIA! I really just want to know if there is anything to be excited about - I had my last two miscarriages in the last 10 months so I am very wary about being too optimistic but also trying to be positive! Right best get on with some work. Hope your all well. Love Vicky.

Let us know how your scan goes. I go in for IUI on Friday, one big juicy egg showing on the scans. Good for us, as I'm nervous about the chance of multiples again.

Hi Denise

Good Luck for Friday. Yes I imagine two sets of twins might be a little daunting! I'm sure you'd manage though! I hope it all goes well. Love Vicky
