Adiejan - I don't think I ever said how sorry I am that you had to go through such a horrendous experience. I'm so glad you got to keep your tube though.
sherry - I hate the 7 progesterone dwarfs too! Hope the trip to Brooklyn isn't too bad.
Chrissy - sorry for the BFN Hope it turns around. Do you usually get early BFPs?
Chuord - Where oh where is that BFP? She's being elusive and it's just not fair!
!Sila - So glad you are getting to the fun part!! Any feeling about gender? I ditched FB months ago, so I'm wondering the same thing. I may announce after the anatomy scan. Not sure. Are you still on the shots??
Daurelia - That is seriously annoying. I can see trying to minimize the pain when talking to others that haven't been through the ringer, but to another friend who has been suffering, it's just mean in my opinion. Sorry for that. I can't wait for this coming week to fly by for you so you can know that you got the job and a BFP!!!
jpack - I"m sorry about the BFNs, but I'm so glad you found an RE that you click with. That is just great news. Have an amazing time out west!!
indie - Can't wait for this clomid IVF to start. I really think you have a great chance at getting some awesome eggs. I totally get not wanting to get into the weeds, but if you do need to just lay it all out, I would love to read all the details.
TF - Sending you strong embaby growing vibes to your bear and little girl.
AFM - It's been a crazy couple of weeks. I've had two more incidents of spotting. Joy! It's been brown and scant, but not something I'm happy about nonetheless. I spoke with my OB (new guy) yesterday and he immediately offered for me to come in today. I declined b/c I need to stop obsessing. I asked if there was any reason besides reassurance and he said there's really nothing we can do or even see at this point, so it would only be to reassure me. It was just a little bit and stopped by yesterday afternoon, so I figure all is well. I think I'm feeling the monkey move, but it's hard to tell.
I met with a hematologist on Wednesday. I told the nurse my history (blood clot after knee surgery) and gave her the RPL tests I had done. The doc comes in and basically says I don't need to be on the blood thinners. I was surprised. Then, she asked what my thoughts were and I said I was concerned b/c of my history of a clot. She then says, "OH! That changes everything. I haven't looked at the computer yet to see what the nurse talked to you about." I'm really glad I said something. At that point, she told me she wanted me on a different drug called Fragmin b/c it was more well studied in pregnant women than lovenox. And, she said they are able to monitor the blood levels with fragmin and not lovenox. So, I got to watch a DVD and take a class to learn how to give myself two injections every day. I was told I'd need to come in every two weeks for blood tests. So, I called my OB and told him what she said and he said that at the hospital where he's associated (different hospital than the heme), their protocol is lovenox. They are both university affiliated hospitals. So, he said he'd call the heme and talk to her. He called yesterday to say that they talked and she was fine with me staying on lovenox and that he'll be the one to monitor me. So, much simpler. When I talked to him, he also reiterated that I can come in whenever I need to to hear the baby on the doppler. I also read about another patient of his who delivered with him and a doula that he recommended. So, I think I read him wrong on the whole natural birth thing. I also hired my doula Just hoping the spotting and stretching/heavy uterus/back pain feelings stay away for a while.
