Thank you everyone. Lady's HCG level on Friday was a dismal 14. It had dropped by over half. She started bleeding a little today. We have 4 more good quality and 1 not great quality blastocysts in the freezer, and will try again with her at the next appropriate cycle. Hopefully I'm back on this thread soon :)
Thanks for all the support everyone.
mama--sending your dp and you healing vibes, and hope to see you back here soon--growing one (or a couple) of those waiting blasts.
isa--did you end up getting to see your fetuses before your trip? any news about the sex of your coming babes?
gamitzer--how are you doing?
it's been pretty quiet over here...how are you all doing?
i'm at 38.5 weeks, and am feeling really ready and excited to birth and meet this baby. my dog was acting even more oddly than she has been during the rest of this pregnancy yesterday, and then i had a ton of consistent braxton hicks contractions in the evening and during the night. but, today they have completely stopped, and i'm really disappointed to not be in labor. for those of you who already have a child/ren, how and when did your (or your dp's) labor start? my midwife has four kids and they were all born past 42 weeks! it horrifies me to have to wait that long and be that pregnant.
mama - I'm so sorry to hear that, but happy you have some other blasts frozen. Good luck with them.
Hallerm - welcome back. I'm due 20th April x
lblueridgemama welcome to you too - how exciting!
breadandcoffee I think by the time I get to 38 weeks I'm going to be pretty sick and tired of being pregnant!!!
gamitzer - hope it all went well!
AFM not too much going on here at 31weeks, although just the last few days I'm knackered. Photographed a wedding on Friday and I think it tipped me over the edge.I've got an ultrasound on Thursday to see if my placenta's still lying low so excited about seeing pinto again.
The great news here though is that one of my friends was going for IVF no 5 (she's straight). I told her to ask them about a couple of procedures they don't usually offer - endometrial scratching & laser assisted hatching (they say there's no proof they work) and guess what? SHE'S PREGNANT!! I'm so stoked for her, yet annoyed at the clinic for not mentioning it any of the other 4 times. Bastards just in it for the money.
Lizbian--that's wonderful about your friend! And it sucks that she had to wait so long for them to find a combination that worked.
AFM--Whelp, the official results are official--two baby boys! And no other concerns to report, which was very reassuring. The ultrasound tech was also pregnant, and it was interesting talking to her about doing her job while also trying not to freak out about her own baby. We're really excited about the boys--it took me a minute to say a mental goodbye to all of the cute little girl outfits hanging out in the basement, but the idea of brothers as possible best friends (my dad and his brother are incredibly close) got me over the ruffle-butt leggings and little mary jane socks that will have to find new homes.
Benjamin Walter is here! He arrived 2/17 at 8:24pm. 7lbs, 10oz, 20" long, super cute! I went in for induction but never progressed past 4cm (after bulb, pit, water broken, etc.), so after about 28 hours we agreed to a c/s. It actually was not that tough of a choice because it seemed like nothing would get me past 4cm. I'm sore but so happy to have this little guy in my arms after almost 42 weeks of pregnancy!! I tried to embed a pic, I hope it worked.
