Blue, I'll be thinking of you tomorrow!!
Blue, I'll be thinking of you tomorrow!!
Aura-- Yup, lunatic would be a good word to describe how I was on the Clomid, too. Funny how the IVF drugs are so more intensive, and yet they have less side effects for some people. I felt crazy emotionally, but also, I had these weird physical side effects that were affecting how I was perceiving things-- visually, how I was processing what I was seeing. Hard to explain. But I really, really don't want to take it again. Of course I will though because if it ups my chances of conceiving. Awesome beta you have-- I can't say enough how happy I am for you! I may have missed it somewhere, but, is there a chance you may have twins?
Laura, I'm glad to hear that the IVF drugs weren't too bad for you. And I'm so happy that you have your bfp after all of that! I can't wait to hear updates from you as you go along!!! Yah, hopefully it was just a bad bunch of swimmers that day. I wonder what kinds of things would make things fall off a cliff, as you say? Stress over the last few months?
Kewpie - I have been following your posts on FB. I could not iagine traveling across the country with two babies, and cats - especially a sick cat. You are amazing.
Tenzins - I guess given that you conceived before - maybe a month or two of clomid woun't hurt. But given your age, I certainly would move to IVF pretty fast . Just my 2 cents.
Tenzin: Could you try femara? It's supposed to have fewer side effects. That's what I used for all my IUIs. I'm surprised you're thinking about all this again so soon! :-)
Blue: Thinking of you tomorrow!! I hope they let you peak at the gender!
RCR: Saw your other post. Big hugs. I'm sorry about your cat. :-( I hope you and your mama feel bettr. I hope there is no more bad news for you!!
Hi Ladies, sorry I haven't been able to check in recently...my free time is limited to about 5 min per day :)
Blue, hope all goes well today!
Aura, glad to see you over here, I need to go check the other side for your beta numbers!!!
Tenzin, I would be rather annoyed by that "nurse", "somethings wrong, but I can't tell you...oh and it doesn't matter on top of it." Gesh people. Glad you have an appointment to find out what's up, but I am guessing/hoping it was an error on their part since nothing has been wrong before. Keep us posted.
Kewpie, I can't imagine such a long trip with pets and babies, sounds like you guys are doing great. I hope the kitty feels better soon! I also love the picture of the babes from the back!!!!
Renavoo, yay for working at home. How often do you get to do that?!
Hope, I am so sorry about the problems with DH :( It's hard to say how you would handle any situation until you are the person in it. It must be very difficult for you, I hope your DH is able to make it up and you will be able to have a trusting/open communication relationship again. My thoughts are with you.
No time for an AFM today...pretty much same same anyway :)
Belly - always good to see your name pop up here!! Hope the girls are doing well and you are all adjusting!!!
Tear - thanks!!! I will feel much better when my ticker gets past 24 wks!!!! All is well so far though. How are you feeling now a days??? How many wks are you again? I think you need a new ticker so I don't have to keep asking you the same question b/c I'll forget, i know it.
Vegan - thanks!! Hope you are doing well and healing!!! Getting any sleep?
Renavoo - Hope things are going smooth this week and that the babes are sleeping thru the night!!
Tenzi - how old is your youngest?? I agree w/ Vegan to maybe try femara instead they say that is better on the lining as well. Never hurts to ask the question.
Hope & Aura - thanks for your well wishes too!
Kewpie - I hope you all survived the trip!!! Update when you get a chance... i'm sure you will be crazy busy unpacking and getting organized though.
Hi to everyone else that i missed.
AFM - Had the stitch today and all went well. Ugh to that feeling like you are a paraplegic! Didn't like that at all. I was numbed from the belly down and it was an awful feeling. Thank God it is over w/ and I can now feel my legs and butt again. It was kinda scary b/c i had a student Anestheologist (which if they would have told me initially i would have refused but they didn't tell me- grrr) and when she was putting the needle in my back the Head guy stopped her and said "wait don't go any further b/c it can be a matter of life and death".... glad life prevailed!!! When i came back to the room then i was shaking like I had parkinson's from the medicine, so that was crazy too. DH and the nurse were laughing at/with me b/c i was trying to eat jello and the spoon would not stay still which made it awful hard to eat. LOL Anyways, they put one stitch in and I'm good to go, gently that is. Laying low today and tomorrow and then hope to be back to normal. DH took Abby w/ him to the store so at least i have the couch to myself and don't have to worry about her jumping on me or wanting to go out for a few hrs. My OB tried to see the sex but the little bugger had his/her leg crossed at the ankles for part of the time. Darn. Might have to wait until the big u/s on Nov 9th. Thanks everyone for your kind thoughts!!!
Just doing a quick fly-by... I have to get off the computer before DH comes home with DS, otherwise he will want to watch diggie videos on YouTube-- we are trying to limit screen time for him. Hard in this day and age, though! But I wanted to check in to see how Blue's procedure went...
Glad to hear that the procedure went well. What the doc said to the student-- that is one thing that you don't want to hear! Oh my, I would have been freaked out! Glad that you could have a little laugh after it was all over, with the shaking Jello.
Will do more personals later, if the kids go to bed okay and I'm not exhausted.
Oh, and thanks everyone for sharing your thoughts! I totally forgot about how some people use Femara.
And, RCR-- I read your post on the other thread. What a week you've had. ((HUGS))
Blue - Thanks, but we're still traveling. We're in CO right now, so only one more day of driving. Our house isn't ready to move into yet, so we'll be staying with family out there for a week or two. (not all with the same family)
I'm glad to hear your cerclage went well.
Aura - HUGE HUGS! I am so happy to see you got your BFP! If I were you, I'd totally make the jump over here.
RCR - Thanks!
Laura - Welcome! I'm glad to see you over here!
AFM - sososososo busy. I will be around more and able to follow everyone better once we're settled... which should be in about 4 weeks.
kewpie, can't wait for you to arrive, get settled, and take lots of photos! you're such a trooper for taking on such an epic move.
blue, so glad the cerclage went well! that must be a great feeling to know you've got an extra level of protection there.
belly, how are the girls??
renavoo, how is working from home working out?
we need more baby pics, ladies! this means you!
afm, slept for 10 hours last night, other than waking up to sleep eat a granola bar. i was too tired to even wash my face, i thought i'd fall over before i got into bed. dh just shook his head and laughed at me, but i needed it. today i fell fine, sore nipples, but that's it. much better than yesterday's headache and mild nausea. so glad it's friday!!!
Darn, my page crashed and i lost everything i wrote and now the babies are up.
Fly by because I wanted to let you all know i was thinking of you!!
Aura, I'm so so so so glad you're here! I love that you're on this thread because i don't get to the other thread as much as I'd like to and I love being able to follow you through the pregnancy!
Tenzi, yah to trying again! i hope you get another free baby :o) I was fine on both clomid and IVF regimens, with the exception of a bit of nausea with clomid but i agree with everyone that you should try femara.
Blue, I'm so happy that the surgery went well! Now get some rest and I can't wait to see more images of your little bean!
Kewpie, hope you're getting lots of rest after the big move! how are the babies taking the new home?
Belly, Keria and Vegan, just thinking of you and looking for a check in!! Belly, I'm so with you about how everything is the same on my front too!
Everyone, just sending out virtual hugs! Fingers crossed that my browser doesn't crash again!
Laura - Welcome to this side!!!! Glad you are able to join us!! I hated PIO shots and thought the Crione was so much easier and no pain just some discharge which i could deal w/.
Aura - Glad you are here too!!!! So sorry to hear about your cat!! Did the spotting stop? How are you feeling? When is your next appt? Do you have any more betas or just the u/s next?? Fill us in!! I always kept and still do actually, pretzels in a little bag on my nightstand in case of emergency's. Haven't needed it lately though. I do drink water all night long though b/c i can't breath through my mouth so i'll wake up every couple hrs and my mouth is cotton dry so i have to drink water which just adds to the bathroom trips which aren't as much fun now that it is getting colder here. Brrrrr!!!
Kewpie - hope you are finally there and things are calming down.
Tenzi - did you decide on anything or talk to your RE at all?
Hope - how are things going w/ you? How many wks are you now?
Belly, Keria, & Vegan - hope you all are well!!
Renavoo - Always nice to see your name pop up. I'm sure you are busy. Are you back to full time work?
Hi to everyone I missed.
AFM - Feeling a little better each day but not back to 100% yet. My back is still pretty sore from the stupid nerve block and I've been feeling some pressure down kinda low in my belly which i didn't have before so i'll have to ask her about that when i see her on Thurs. Tomorrow i have an appt w/ my allergist so I'm hoping maybe he has a miracle solution for my stuffy nose.... wishful thinking. Not much else going on here as far as I know.
