I have been lurking on this board for a little while and thought I'd introduce myself.

Hi, Cathie:

It's nice to meet you. And thank you for your warm welcome.

I wish you and your dh much success. You are an inspiration to me.

I can relate to the m/c. I am ttc#4 after losing 2 babies in the last 3 yrs. But I must say that I am in awe of your tenacious spirit and tremendous courage. Much baby dust to you, Sweetie!

Hugs,

Rhonda

Hi, Cathie:

Just checking in to see how you are doing. I'm not sure about the IVF process, so if I say something "wrong," please feel free to correct me. Are the meds to get you ready for the procedure? What, if I may ask, do the meds do?

Again, I sure admire your courage. And I'm praying for you and your dh! I pray that this Spring is a wonderful one for all of us here. It's od19 for me and I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much. Even if it has happened, I won't breathe until after 3 months.

Hugs and baby dust all around,

Rhonda

Hi Cathie:

Wow--you sure sound great! The process you are going through seems overwhelming to me. But you are right--we will do whatever it takes. My hat's off to you! March 24th is my birthday! So, it can only go good for you! LOL

I'm on cd24 and counting. I'll do a pg test tomorrow using First Response. And another on Monday. So, we shall see. Trying not to get too excited, but you know how that goes. My last pg I had low HCG counts and ended in m/c. But my thoughts are positive, and Spring is in the air here in CA. :-)

Hugs and happy thoughts,

Rhonda

Thanks, Cathie. I appreciate your support so much!

Took ept today, and it was neg. It's cd26, so I doubt I am pg. First Response always showed a pos at this time if I was pg. Having a lot of symptoms, though. Could be PMS I guess. Anyway, thanks for listening.

I realize I am already blessed with three beautiful "kids." My thoughts and prayers are with you!

Hugs and baby dust,

Rhonda

Well, Cathie, cd 32 and still hangin' in here. Three neg hpt and one blood test (will find out on Tuesday that result). No sign of AF. Lots of pg signs, though.

How are you doing? I really appreciate your upbeat tone. You are an inspiration.

Care about you. Please keep in touch.

Hugs and baby dust,

Rhonda
