lisdea - so sorry to hear AF arrived, i was holding out so much hope for this cycle for you!
pokey - that's a great progesterone number! definitely better to get your body to do it on its own, rather than have to deal with the supplements.
gelly - hope you had a fun birthday celebration with your dw! are you planning to poas before your beta?
rs & cannany - thinking of you both today, with your beta draws.
carmen - how completely unfair to be sick in vegas!! hope you get to have some fun before you leave!
mrs - i was never good with charting, so i'm not sure ... but i love wehrli's response too!!
afu, my first beta draw was this morning. the number was 520. it's hard not to compare it to the first beta in my last FET cycle (932), so i'm feeling a big guarded and worried still. repeat beta will be friday, i feel like i'm holding my breath until then.
Mrs- I am LOVING your optimism this cycle!!! I am sure that your extra high temp is due to the two little babies who are in there snuggling in for the next nine months!!!
Junebug- Your beta sounds good. It is really close to the averages you listed yesterday. I am sure that you have a happy little baby growing in there that you will get to meet in about 36ish weeks.
Rs and Cananny-
Amt- I am so sorry for what your donor did to you guys.
AFM- Today I had one of those moments where I was watching a mother with 3 young boys who were misbehaving and throwing fits and she seemed at her wits end and I just thought, 'what am I doing!?!?!?' Have any of you had those moments? It feels really weird to me because I really want to be a parent but I think sometimes I live in this fantasy that things will be how they are now and we wont have those kind of kids or be those kind of parents. Today it just kinda hit me that this could in fact work and we could have one of those kids or be that kind or parent and it scares the s&*! out of me. I am sure this will be a fleeting feeling and I hope I am not alone in this.
rs - I am so sorry. Take care of yourself, please.
hopeful -- I know what you mean. We have a teenager and every time things get too teenager-y in my house, my wife and I have a conversation that goes "are you sure we want a baby? because babies turn into teenagers..." But kids are great, mostly, so I think it's worth it.
rs so sorry...hang in there....
pokey...yay for those #s!!!!!
hopeful.....oh im a career nanny and i.am horrified at the way some kids act, and disrespect their parents, i look.at them and ask how does that happen......i hope and pray my 16yrs exp i will know better and i wont have those kind of kids .....but everyone says "just wait till they are yours 24/7!!!! i have a friend who was a nanny for yrs and had her own kid ..and forgot everything she ever knew....like she had never been around a baby before....and her sin who is now 4.....is that kid and she is that parent ....i pray that never happens to me or dp ( who also nannies)
hi everyone else
Rs, I second MrsandMrs- please take care of yourself. Whatever that looks like is totally fine. If it means screaming into your pillow or out loud or having a breakdown and crying or drinking a bottle of wine or eating a shit ton of chocolate cake, it's totally fine to feel what you are feeling. Please, just let yourself feel it and if you are numb, that's okay too and if you are mad and in that madness you make someone else mad, please forgive yourself. Where you are is where you are. I know I speak for everyone here when I say that we are all sending you so much love right now. Wish I could reach through the screen and give you a big, big hug.
RS: I'm so very sorry. Hugs from across the miles to you and DW
Cananny: What do you think your doctor will say is the next step for you guys? Maybe all of us here can do something that seems so counterintuitive and collectively pray that AF visits you real soon. Oh, thanks for stepping up to be threadkeeper for April. I will send you a pm with all the details in the next day. You will be great.
RS11~ I am so sorry for your loss.... Hugs to you and dp.
Cananny~ Hope that AF is on her way. I am not a nanny, but I totally get the hoping that doesn't turn into me or my kid.
Junebug~ Yeah for great beta numbers.
AFM~ Nothing new...went back to work ...today was my Monday and tomorrow will be my Friday. Then off for a few days and I'm taking out of town for her b-day to just enjoy each other and have fun hanging out. I have had a few hot flashes, but that's it...no pinching, or cramping or anything. But it is still way early...specially since I am on 100mg of PIO per day...I'm sure all kind of symptoms will pop up here soon. Okay...I;m headed to bed.
Hey everyone, thanks for all the good wishes. We thought we were prepared for the news; we shouldn't have expected anything else with that low beta, but we were still praying for a miracle. We're both pretty devastated. What surprises me is how angry I am; SO many people get pregnant at the drop of a hat, and then this happens to us. I'm probably not going to be around much for the next few days.
We're going to try again this cycle. Hopefully, we'll have better news next month.
I do have a question, and if anyone know the answer I'd be grateful. They said this wasn't likely to happen again even though I have PCOS, but if it did, would that mean there's something wrong with my eggs and we would need IVF?
Sorry there's no personals. I don't have the energy right now.
