Spring Cycle Friends - Nov/Dec 2010 Due Dates

Postby lycase » Wed Apr 07, 2010 5:25 pm

Hello ladies. I was looking for the November 2010 Due Date tread but can't find it so I am starting this one and if there is another one please let me know we can just be all together.

I come from the March/April Cycle board and just wanted to wait for the other ladies who had a BFP to join in. I also wanted to make sure my beany was nice and strong.

Background information: I did the FET on March 10th from my IVF clinic's Embryo Donation Program. We got the 12 remaining embryos of an anonymous couple and we are SO thankful for them. We thawed 6 embryos (don't ask why) but anyways we transfered 5 and since my Betas were very high 426 and 1071 I though omg I have 3-4 on there... but no I just got back from my first U/S today and I only have the ONE beany in there with a hb of 162 and mesuring 3.86mm.

What I don't understand is the doctor says my due date is November 10th. But according to the transfer I should be Nov 28th. Anyways I am 6w1d today.

We still have 6 embies left on ice and hoping to get a sibling for my one beany next year if everything goes well.

I pray that everything is going to be ok for all of you who join in...

Hello Helene! Congratulations new mommy! I am due Nov 4th 2010 and I have twins brewing in there. :) Your due date if your transfered 5 day embies is Nov 26th, if they were 3 day embies then your due date of Nov 28th is correct! Basically, when you were 1 week preggo, before you probably even knew it, you were already around 3 weeks pregnant... yes even though the little embies weren't even in you yet. lol Here is the link to check out your due date http://www.ivf-infertility.com/calc_preg.php you can also just go to the resorces tab at the top of the page. :)

I think no one started a November thread is maybe most are waiting for that 2nd trimester to come first. I know that is why I decided not to attempt it yet, but hey, you started one so why not join. :)

That is a great story you have! Thank heavens for genorous people like those donors! That is what we are doing with our remaining embies, donating them. DH wasn't sure at first, but he is sure he doesn't want more babies and with twins on the way he is really really sure. We ended up agreeing that they deserve a chance to survive and some couple out there deserves to have a chance to have a good looking baby. ;)

My story... well, to make a long story short, after two fresh failed cycles, we did a FET, transfering 3 and got two! YAY!!

thanks Stephanieford78 I know my due date is Nov 28th? Wonder why my IVF monitoring OB said the 10th?? Just strange... anyhow they will come when they come right.

So you will be donating your embies oh that is just amazing... I am so greatful for the ones who donated even if it is anonymous... so I won't know what they will look like but all babies are cute right :)

And you are too funny... I love the way you speak of your little embies :) you sound like a fabulous mommy to twins to be.

I got a picture too... Congratulations btw :)

Thanks for joining.

Helene,

OB's are not all there when it comes to us IVFers like us. If they asked you when your LMP was and you told him your transfer date then that is likely how he is screwing up. You have to tell them you didn't have a LMP you had a transfer date and just tell them your correct due date. lol That is what I had to do. If I gave them my LMP I would be 3 days off... close but no cigar. :)

I am actually a part of the Winter thread too since that is when I had my last transfer which was Feb 16th starting the cycle in January of course. It is a great group but I am not doing much on a daily basis so this just gives me more reason to browse and talk to more people. :) I have been on rest for three weeks while I try to heal a subchorionic bleed. Not much fun and a bit scarey, but my little beanie babies are doing just fine. My first OB appt isn't until the 19th, I can't wait! :mrgreen:

So what is next for you? By the way, you can call me Steph or Stephanie. :)

Thanks Steph, so you are bleeding? Where from? That must be something to worry about.

I did tell me my LMP was Feb 11 cause my cycles are 45 days long so they were saying well then you would be 7 w pg but the baby measures 6w1d and then I told them my transfer was March 10 for a 3d transfer... so then they said ok now it measures right... So they have all the dates? Not sure what is going on... I guess I will know more at my next U/S which is April 27th... then I am transfered to an High Risk OB cause of my c-section in December... See I didn't think this first cycle would work so I had planned trying a Natural cycle now and probably won't work then 3 months later try with meds maybe... but it worked cause they thawed too many embies... so anyways what is is and so I am very happy that it is only one :)

Have a good day Steph.

Helene - Hmm... well maybe they will just go by what the baby measures and forget about the dates since that seems to be confusing everyone. lol My RE office and the IVF due date on the site matched perfectly so I assume it is right. As far as my bleeding, I am trying to not sorry about it. RE isn't worried and there are many success stories out there. A few people in Winter cycle thread have had the same issue and their babies are doing just great! I can feel my baby bump so I know they are in there and growing. Especially since I didn't think I could feel it a week ago, so they must be growing fast! RE offered me an u/s i the bleeding continues. DH and I haven't had any "fun" since the day before transfer so we are missing that. It's worth it not to risk anything though. I have been taking it easy as well. I am just exciting to finally be in the double digits now! Just a few more weeks and I will feel so much better about things.

So how are you feeling? Any m/s yet?

Yes it's true that bleeding is very common and not to worry... Glad your RE is offering to reassure you.

At my last pg I bought a baby monitor to hear the baby's heart so make sure it was always beating... cause of my 2008 mc. so those are so much fun too. It would be even more fun to have an ultrasound machine right at home :) Starts can afford that it's so cool :)

I am feeling great... I never feel anything when I am pg so not expecting anything again. Just twice felt soft breast and a little fatigue but that's it.

Thanks for asking.

Oh how I wish I had one of those machines! I would be doing it every day! I don't think I can afford one though? They do have hand held u/s now where you can see the baby, but I know those are way too expensive and I am not sure if you can get one if you aren't a medical professional? I guess Google can answer that. lol

So where are all the other Spring cycle mommies? I thought for sure there would be more here then just me and you by now?

I think they are all still worried to join... you know mc or bleeding for some of them might still be in the air.

I am sure they will soon. I guess we could invite them too :)

Good idea... tell your Spring mommy friends not to fret and come on over. Thinking positive and joining the mommy club is better than thinking, what if? I know what it's like though... I was there too, still am really. lol I don't think the worry ever really goes away with us.

I would love to... just afraid to hurt those who got a BFN you know. But I will figure out a nice way to invite them...

Oh by the way I ordered the "Blue / Pink Gender Test Kit" today. It was expensive but I would really like to know what I am expecting and since I only have ONE in there I can actually do the test. Cause with twins you can't really know.

I heard about those, I looked them up once but it said you had to wait until you are at least 10 weeks to do it because the placenta has to be functioning. Aparently it's a finger prick and they test it, if it comes back with a Y chromozome detected you are having a boy, if not then a girl? I wanted to do it but I was too early then, and then I found out I have twins. lol Oh well, I will just have to wait 10 more weeks for the scan, unless I get one that can tell earlier than that. :)

Yes with twins it won't work as much you can only know if you carry at least one boy... but if you carry NO boys then it can work. But they also say with progesterone it won't be acurate so?? Ya we are so used to waiting for everything we can hold that long :)

What would you like to have?

That's odd... the placenta produces progesterone anyway so how can it mess up the test? :? Oh well... hope it works for you!! :D I would like to have two boys, but everyone else wants one of each and I do mean everyone, not just DH but DD and anyone who would like to chime in. lol I have a girl so of course I would like a boy. Since I am having twins, you would think one of each would be nice but it really has to do with the name issue. DH wants a junior. I am not wild about that. I have had a name in mind for a long time for a boy and have become attached to it... like it is meant to be type feeling. So I am hoping for two boys so he can have his name sake and I can have the name I feel so attached to. Sounds silly probably, but have you ever had a dream where you saw something and it felt so real you could touch it? That's what happened to me. I had a dream about twin boys over a year before I got preggers. DH was rubbing my belly right after transfer and saying 'the twins' all the time... then at 6w5d we found out there really are two. On top of that, when I was a kid my mom always told me I would be the one to have twins in the family, she passed when I was 19 but now that I am pg with twins, I can hear her saying it all the time in my mind now. :lol: I guess it was just meant to be. Hmmm... got side tracked. lol Oh well, I can get long winded at times. :)

How about you? Boy or girl? I know all we really care about is health, but I think most of us lean towards one or the other more.
