OMG I can't believe how far you ladies have come! I need to read back and see what's going on with everyone!! Well I'm back. My little guy just turned one on May 28th and I had my FET yesterday hoping for another boy but grateful for whatever. We wanted to transfer 2 but only one of them survived the thaw :( . In any case that one was graded "good" quality so I'm trying to stay hopeful. We hired a nanny for the week so I can take it easy and not chase my son around while praying for our frosty to stick. I hope you all remember me. I'll read back and get caught up. Beta on June 27th so I'm just trying to keep sane until then!!!

Soooo many emotions after reading back!! I feel like I've missed so much!

Sunshine - Girl!!!! Congrats, this is so awesome. I'm so excited for you. Enjoy every minute of it.

Alisa - I can't believe how old you little girl is!! Time does fly. So sorry the FET did not work out. I can so relate to desperately wanting a sibling for her. That's why I'm back here praying for one for my little guy. I'm trying to stay positive and in prayer since its still so early. But I was so bummed that only one frosty survived the thaw. Not that I was hoping for twins, but I just felt my chances were better with the two ..... Another reason I haven't told my family we are trying for number 2. I cannot stand the " you already have Samuel" response!!

Leora - You are the main reason I came back to the board. I get so much strength knowing how strong you are. I just hate that you are still fighting this battle, I just know you will get your little bundle in the end and it will be worth it! This last one sounded rough Hun, I'm just glad you are on the mend and continue to look forward.

Jennifer - I can't believe we are cycling together again!!! This is too awesome. Hopefully we bring each other luck. How's your big guy?

Dawn - Sound like you are going through a physical roller coaster. Sending hugs and hopeful prayers.

I am so sorry for the ladies who have lost. There is nothing more devastating than the joy of a BFP followed by a loss. This journey is such an emotional nightmare that the only thing to keep us sane is sharing it with others who can relate. I'm sorry I can't do personal hugs but rather I'm sending out one big hug to hold us all together as we support one another. This board is awesome, and word cannot describe the value of the love and encouragement found here.

I apologize for not addressing everyone - I'm still so confused with the Christy/Kristie/Cristie situation I'm afraid I'd get the stories mixed up. Promise to do better.

FVrogers/Felicia- Welocme back and best wishes on your FET. Hey I am a Cristie and I even get confused. Thank you for your kind words. I really appreciate them.

Christy/Sunshine- Party sounds like a blast. BBQ are one of my favorite things to do. We had an impromto last night with another family and it was so nice. Hope DH has good news soon. It wont be long now and you will be past the half way point.

Alisa- Stay strong girl. Glad you are starting your training. Wish I could run still, but tore my ACL a few years back and it has never been the same.

Jennifer-How your not going too crazy with the wait.

Ironchef- Hope the 2 week wait goes really fast. Find some good books and keep your mind busy.

Hope all others are doing well.

AFM-Nothing new. Hoping I am at zero this Friday.

Welcome back and congrats on being PUPO Felicia. I remember you, can't believe your DS is already 1!

Cristie- thanks and good luck on Friday. I called my clinic and we will do a beta but I don't feel like I need one yet since the process just started and my levels were over 10,000 last week. I feel like they kept rising too, had some symptoms. Ugh. It's going to take awhile I am afraid. Bummer on the ACL! Not sure what I would do without running.

Dawn, you have been quiet... You ok?

Hi ladies- I went in For my ultrasound today. I have been so nervous waiting for it and was really nervous as I was in the room waiting for the nurse to come in. It's hard not to be haunted by how wrong things have gone in the past. Good news though! The nurse found the sac and we saw the heartbeat and then.... She saw another heartbeat!!!!! Twins! Both are measuring at 7mm with good heartbeats. I can hardly believe it. I am 6 weeks 5 days today so I know it is still early on and anything can happen but for today I'm just enjoying the good news.
I am new to this board so I don't know everyone's situation but I just want to thank you for being here for me and for each other. There is so much love and strength here because we understand each other and know what it's like to go through this crazy journey. For those of you in the 2ww.. I wish you lots of luck and patience to make it through the wait. :)
For those who have had to deal with loss this time around... Know of my support to you. I have been there many times and I'm sorry. I hope you are all doing well and thanks for letting me share my news with you.

Thanks for the warm welcome back.

Cristie - I will be thinking of you this Friday and hoping for Beta hell to end.

Alisa - I cannot believe that he is one either!!! We keep saying that we cannot believe that we are parents of a toddler. It is sureal how time flies.

Christy - Congrats hun!!! We can all relate to how nerve wracking this process is. I know every ultrasound made me a nervous wreck right up until the 2nd trimester, then I was able to breathe a tad bit easier. Just wanted to share a great big congrats!!

Welcome back Felicia! Of course we remember you sily. :D Time sure does fly by when we're busy for sure, congratulations on your FET cycle, we're here to cheer you on! Awww two boys would be fun but also one of each flavor definately would be the perfect family as well.

Alisa I'm glad you find solice in running...we all need something to give our minds a break from all the IVF stuff from time to time and then when the time is right you'll have the next steps in full swing.

Omg Christy twins how EXCITING!!! Two of everything, how SWEET I hope you have twin girls and dress them alike! :D

Thank you Cristie the cookout was a good distraction, not sure about dh since all his former coworkers came but I'm sure he appreciated the support and they all loved him at the college, it goes to show he has true friends out there. Thinking of you girl too and hoping you can get to the next stage soon, from experience each day will get easier although sometimes we can think it's taking forever like we are in limbo, but continue to hold on and stay strong and each of us will make it.
