Announcement of pregnancy and birth following assisted reproductive treatment.

I'm going to ask for a picture at my ultrasound. I've already started a photo album with the first picture being the embryos.

What kind of pregnancy symptoms is everyone having? I'm so tired, I wonder if I will make it through work.

symptoms

Postby Tara2009 » Thu Apr 09, 2009 6:14 pm

I don't feel any pregnancy symptoms yet. Some bloating is still there, but the cramping has almost stopped. I don't feel nausea or dizziness. I am able to eat any food. May be it will all hit me later...

tara it is not uncommon for no symptoms at 5 weeks most woem who dont go through ivf dont even know they are pg until minimm on 6weeks will period has been a week late and they dont feel anything the problem is we know so early we expect to feel something your baby is the side of a grain of rice. Be happy to not have symptoms, some people like me get the m/s from hell

hello

Postby Tara2009 » Mon Apr 13, 2009 3:39 pm

Hello Ladies,

Its been very quiet for the past few days. How is everybody doing? I still don't feel anything. No cramps anymore.

Are we supposed be taking things easy and have some rest at this time? I am not getting the chance and the past 2 weeks have been busy with guests. I have been cooking, going to work and never rested! Also I haven't been eating good food either. I am going to change this life style. Any suggestions for a good & healthy diet?

Tara.

Hi girls!!!

Sorry I have been quiet- BUSY Easter weekend!

Aims: NO WORRIES! Although I've felt a little crampy from time to time, I think it is mostly either gas- or bowels movin' around!! Never had spotting, but have had some of the progesterone suppository residue come out with a pink tinge to it. RNs all say this is completely normal, as well as the spotting... I think it's just your uterus warming up!! Take it easy though!

I've definitely got the morning sickness blues- it comes and goes- which freaked me out at first, but it usually only comes when I haven't eaten for a while. AND very very sore bbs :( BUT, I am NOT complaining. I prayed so hard for this that I told God to throw whatever symptoms he needed to at me- that I could take it! :lol: Be careful what you ask for, right :)

Anyways- my u/s SHOULD have been on the 15th TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You all are so lucky! I can't wait to hear the news!!

xoxo,

Hi girls!

My symptoms seem to come and go. I am starting to feel nauseous in the mornings now. I woke up at 4am saturday feeling sick. I just rolled over and went back to sleep trying to ignore it. But 30 minutes later, my bladder woke me up! lol

Good luck, Ian, at your u/s this week. I still have a week to go for mine. One of these days we may run into each other at midwest or already have. lol

Hi ladies, can I crash? :D It's pretty early for me to join probably but just had my 1st beta yesterday 15dpt and it was 868. My 2nd beta is tomorrow. By my calculations (i've used about 5 different IVF calculators and they've given me the same day) my due date would be December 16th. When did you all get your official due date? The nurse only gave me a beta number yesterday when she called. I know most (if not all) of you from the March/April board. So glad to FINALLY be here...just to wait some more of course, haha :lol: . So did everyone get scheduled for a u/s after their 2nd beta? I hope I can get one next week. I know I wouldn't get to see heartbeats yet, but I'm going on a family getaway for 4 days at the end of next week and I'd want to give my sisters as much info as possible when I see them. Even if it's just telling them whether we saw 1 or 2 sacks :)

As far as symptoms for me, I'm feeling nauseous as I type this. I'm eating on crackers at work. My boobs have been VERY sore and I had to go buy 2 new bras because I was starting to spill out of my old ones. Didn't go up a cup size or anything but can't wear the cute demi, had to switch to full coverage! :lol: I do feel some "pulling" if I turn a certain way or roll over at night in bed.

So how many embies did everyone have put back? I had 2.

Hi Cynthia,

Welcome to this thread!! Congratulations on your BFP!! My first u/s is tomorrow. I had 3 embies transferred, and I hope and pray to see two sacs tomorrow. I would love to have twins!! My due date is December 7th. Keep updating.

Hi Cynthia! - Congrats on your BFP! I don't think any of us have been given an official due date yet. We've been using the caculators. My u/s isn't scheduled until 4/21. A week to go....ugh. I have found the wait for the u/s is worse than the 2ww for beta. My clinic wouldn't give me an u/s until I was 7 weeks pregnant. They want to see the heartbeat. I've had so many ups and downs. My boobs are sore then they're not. I'm consistenly spotting every tuesday, and I freak out and call the clinic. I'm just starting to get nauseous but no throwing up. I had to take my hubby to the hospital last night for a kidney stone and it put me an hour and half late for my PIO shot. So, all I can do now is just pray the u/s looks normal next week. As far as the pulling feeling you have, I had that a lot right after beta. I don't have it so much right now. I just roll over on my boobs and cringe. lol

Tara - Let us know how the u/s went!

Hi girls-

I just wanted to let you all know that I didn't get an "official" due date until my first u/s, and it fluctuated depending on how the baby was measuring. According to all calculators, my due date should have been september 1, at first u/s they said my due date would be sept 6, then at next u/s changed it to sept 4. It all made sense to me since my numbers were low at first beta which idicated a late implantation, which is why the caluclators would have been off by a couple days. Anyway, in the end, it didn't matter, I had a planned c-sec on Aug 26...but just wanted to let you all know the calculators are fairly accurate and you should get official due dates at your first u/s. Good luck, and hopefully I will be joining you all over on this side soon!

Thanks Michele for your "what to expect posts". They really do help and answer a lot of questions!


aims, I was reading the earlier post here and was reminded that you're in the Fort Wayne area. Maybe we'll get to have a play date after all the next time I'm up visiting the in-laws :D I hope I don't have to wait until I'm 7 weeks. That puts me at like 5/1!! Yikes! Another 2ww like you said. The worst part about the pulling and sore boobs is that my litlte fur baby can't climb all over me like he use to. I catch myself yelling at him because it hurts when his little paws touch my chest or adomen. He use to lay on my chest at night in bed. That won't happen now! They say dogs can sense things so I'm sure he'll start to understand what's going on after a while. I completely forgot about my PIO shot the other night! We had turned out the lights for bed at 10:30 when I remembered. I'm getting slacker and slacker doing those. Probably because I'm getting so tired of having to do them. I know they are important but still...

Well at least I can live through you all until my u/s. You'll always be 1 step ahead of me :D

Cynthia - A play date sounds like fun. Ian is also not too far from Ft. Wayne. We go to the same clinic. My dogs sensed when I was pregnant before I knew. I have 2 very hyper boxers that like to jump on people. Before I knew I was pregnant, I would come home and they would stand there looking at me. I just thought they were being good for once!

LOL! I love boxers. They are hyper little things. I have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a lab mix. The lab is such a daddy's girl, she's always all over dh. The cavalier is my baby and he just looks up at me with those big eyes with the saddest puppy face in the world. I think he can sense something but doesn't know that mommy is sore and he can't snuggle in his "pillows" like he use to, haha!
