Hello Ladies,


Well here we are again - getting ready to start another IVF.  I don't know if anyone remembers me - I had my IVF in Jan and although we got a BFP, it ended in miscarriage at week 10.  It was pretty devestating, since we had gone in for u/s, even seen the heartbeat and had just been released to obgyn. 


We are ready to start again, so pretty excited to be cycling.  Anyone else cycling with me in August? 


So now waiting for Day 1 of my period so I can call to schedule my mock transfer.  Then BCP for 2 weeks so I should be doing injections by early August.


I've also been doing acupuncture since early June just to keep me relaxed.  So far it's working, I feel pretty good about going into this and keeping my fingers crossed. 


So who's cycling with me in August???.....lol.  Good luck to us all, ladies, and I'm here to offer my support to you.   


Chris

Thank you ladies, I am so much more calmer now and learning to enjoy the pregnancy. I sometimes have nausea, at different times of the day, but otherwise, I am still symptom free. I am just going to let this baby take his/her course. Me worrying is going to do nothing more.



Chris, thank you for your support! Please keep me updated on how you are doing.



Leah, thank you!



Michelle, thank you and can't wait to hear your ultrasound results. It will all be very fine, I'm sure of it.



Ginger, I had an ultrasound at exactly 5w4d and all they could see was a gestational sac.. not even the yolk sac.. it wasn't until a week later that we could see the yolk sac and the embryo

Always a mom at heart, waiting for a child of my own.

Hello Ladies,

Just wanted to let you know that I got to see 3 little hearts beating yesterday. I had been spotting for about the last week on and off so the doctor had me come in to do another US. I had also been put on bed rest on and off the last week. When the doctor saw the 3 heartbeats he said I can go back to work just take it easy. I'm still spotting, but I've heard that it is very common with multiples.

Hey Ginger!



I was just getting on online to send you an email and saw that I had one from you! The ultrasound went well. We saw one little heartbeat and a tiny tiny fetus measuring 8.62 mm!! I have to admit I was very emotional on the way home though because I started to belive that I was having twins. I did not expect to feel that

Michelle,

That is so awesome that you got to see the heartbeat. Isn't it just amazing. So sorry the other embryo didn't make it :( But look at the bright side you've got one. One perfect little bean growing inside you feeling your love.
ASM: I had a little bout of bleeding last week so the doctor had me on bed rest, then he had me come in for an US on Thursday last week and my DH and I saw 3 little beans with strong heartbeats. It really dawned on me that I am having 3 babies!!! They kept telling me that the bleeding was probably from one of the embryos miscarrying (disappearing twin syndrome) nope they were all still there :)
