9dpo and darker squinter! My symptoms:

This is my second cycle since Mirena removal! DD is 9, DF/OH is 27 and I'm 33. No known fertility issues for OH or myself. O- Horny beyond belief. BDd but OH did not finish (but successful BD cd6). Extremely watery CM, turned to EWCM later on. Breasts not sensitive per se, but standing at full attention, feeling full too. Sharp O pains in left side, they'd come and go. Odd headache on brow. 1dpo- Temp went up almost a degree.  More EWCM. Horny again, much to my OHs delight. BDd again. Success! Didnt really enjoy one of my favorite Taco Bell lunches. Evening brings bubbly feeling in lower abdomen (Taco Bell?). Off and on ovary pain on left side. (Not sure if I Od now or yesterday?) Feeling hungry but nothing sounds good. 2dpo- Temp dipped very slightly. Hungry/nauseated in the morning. Very emotional (wanted more BDing, he declined and I bawled LOL). brown ewcm/spotting,  very light and only when I wipe. Another meltdown. Seem to be hungry all day even though I've eaten. Not normal. Odd underarm pain on left side. Evening sore throat on left side (comes and goes). Headache literally on top of my head. Breasts not feeling full anymore. More nausea before bed. 3dpo- woke at 4 am, pink spotting and lots of pink ewcm when I used the restroom. Not sure if I ovulated, as my temp dropped again today. (97.23). Moody. Sex drive has gone down a bit but still there. Poking headache, odd vaginal pains that came and went. Sore bbs and underarms. Same hunger. Gassy. Energetic but tired. Big meltdown, nausea, left hip pain and more brown creamy cm. Surely this isn't implantation already? Feel like the flu is coming. Still moody at bedtime. Sore neck muscles out of nowhere. 4dpo- really not convinced that I ovulated.  Temp dropped again to 97.12. Feeling out. Super emotional. Sore neck muscles are back. More brown cm. Odd vaginal pain that didn't last long. Fluttering feeling in left ovary area- like an eye twitch that only lasted a couple seconds. White creamy, stretchy cm at night, gums seem sore, forgetful (couldn't remember what a snack cake was called) 5dpo- 97.5. woke up with horrible taste in mouth, hungry but not, more creamy cm (lots for me), emotional because OH left town for 2 days, have a good feeling this month though. Feel like I need to pee but don't. Very noticeable cramping on left side below hip. Tired, although I did clean a LOT today (odd lol). Vaginal throbbing on and off throughout the day. Just noticed today, that my cats has been following me the past 2 days or so. They insist on sleeping on my stomach or my groin LOL. Sore gums at night again. Tired at 830, again. Pale yellowish cm that stretches very far (5cm). PINK cm at bedtime. Very suspicious now :) implantation for real? Falling feeling while sitting? Gotta be in my head. Swollen feet 6dpo- 2 am and still not able to sleep. Starving. RLS. Got about 3 hours sleep. Temp up slightly (probably because I didn't sleep well). Incredibly tired and feeling off this morning. EWCM?! (Tmi but kind of snotty) Usually have sticky cm at this point. Napped and felt more tired after, actually feel like I'm getting sick. Woke back up at 1 pm, sweating like crazy, very vivid dream. Breasts feel like there's more tissue, but not sore or even sensitive.  More creamy, stretchy cm. No appetite and mild nausea. Emotional again. Pinkish orange cm? 7dpo- Temp up again (97.7). Sneezy (but it's almost fall, I usually get sick around this time). Tiny random pulling on the right lower abdomen. Creamy white cm. Full feeling breasts that now tug when I bend over (but not looking bigger). On and off neck pain, like I turned my head wrong. Things have been tasting off (cookie crisp and pop tarts don't even taste sweet?!) and I still barely have an appetite. Sniffing a lot. Felt the immense urge to clean again, even going behind OH and making him pick up his trash, which I never do. Little bit winded. More cleaning in afternoon and I had to stop bc of sciatic pain on my left outer thigh/lower back (only had this with my first pregnancy). Abdominal fluttering. EWCM in evening (a lot!) Cervix high and soft. Headache at bedtime (9:30- early again; so tired. woke up shortly after; dream about second faint pink line! 8dpo- woke up at 2:30, poas, very faint positive! At 6, woke up sweating like crazy. Temp down (97.38). Still creamy cm. Not much to report today, which is kinda bumming me out. Took another wondfo and a frer and couldn't see anything on either. Noticing a lot of saliva but cm is pretty much gone :( Took another test at bedtime, BFN. Few little short-lived pains under arm and in right bb. Momentary lower left back pain. Super gassy and bloated.

BFP after miscarriage in March

Wow! I can't believe I'm posting here! I've been stalking this site since my miscarriage in March and have learned so much. It took a year to get pregnant the first time, although now that I look back on it I didn't know when/if I was ovulating that whole year. I was convinced something was not working right, but anyway that ended in a MC at 7 weeks. We were heartbroken and six weeks after that I got my period again. My somewhat old-fashioned doctor told us to wait 3 months before TTC. I decided to track my O with opks and found out I was O'ing on cd22/23 out of a 34/35 day cycle. So, after tracking this for June and July, I ran out of opks in August. I bought some more on Amazon Prime, but they didn't arrive until cd23. I never got a positive after testing a few more days. So, I really don't know my dpo, but I think I'm 13dpo. I got my very very faint BFP early this morning on a wondfo, frer, and clinic guard! This afternoon I used a digital and it said, "Pregnant!" So, I guess it's real! I worried all day about whether I needed a beta done, but my doctor acted like he didn't worry about that until I had recurrent miscarriages. In my mind I screamed, "it will be too late then!" We're just praying that God gives us a healthy baby. I'll go in at 6 weeks for an ultrasound and hopefully we'll a sweet little heartbeat! Symptoms: worse breast pain ever, implantation bleeding two days ago that I thought was my period, backache, a little light cramping, headaches, gassy

BFP 5th cycle after stopping breastfeeding!

I am estatic to share my bfp story! Like everyone else reading everyone elses story helps make that two week wait a little easier! My cycle didn't return until 6 weeks after stopping BF my son. My first few cycles we used OPKs timed intercourse perfectly but kept getting bfns. I did note that my luteal phase was short 9-10days. After the 3rd cycle with a short luteal phase I started blackmores conceive well gold tablets. (I was on blackmores pregnancy and BF tablets before that) and also started taking 50mg vit b6. This cycle I started drinking one cup of green tea and used pree seed. It seemed to do the trick for us! I didn't really have many symptoms in the two week wait. 7dpo: some diarrhea 8/9dpo: small amount of spotting 9/10dpo (not 100% sure which day I ovulated.) Bfp ( very faint, barely there on FRER 10/11dpo: much darker Bfp nearly same as control- have started having sore boobies today. But no increased CM

BFP 11DPO

I was told by my doctor that i couldnt have anymore Fermera (7.5mg) until I had a visit with her. So I was bummed this cycle as I knew I wouldn't ovulate and my cycle would just drag on. I was drinking Raspberry Leaf Tea a lot this cycle and noticed tons of EWCM around CD 17 ... Not taking it seriously we BD'd 3-4 times around that EWCM time. O day - EWCM, shooting pain Left side. 1-5 DPO - nothing 6 DPoO - Gassy like crazy 7 DPO - when things started to change. I felt like AF was coming hard but one week early? thats odd for me 8 DPO - Bloated, and felt tons of pressure down below all day. Like aching heavy pressure 9 DPO - Same feeling but SO bloated. Like i was 6 months preggo. Pain and pressure. Feeling SO sleepy that I NEED a nap after work ( feel like I implanted this day 10 DPO - Feeling achy and bloated again but not so intense. When I wipe while on the toilet I see light pink watery CM ( hummm? period) later this day the colour was dark brown and very little. 11 DPO - BFP with FMU!!!!! This is my 5th Pregnancy all others have resulted in miscarridge. Feeling hopeful.

Unexpected Miracle - battling through Endometriosis & Crohn's

Let me just start by saying this TOTALLY caught us by surprise! We had been trying off and on for about 6 months to get pregnant. Since it had not happened yet, and since we are both still fairly young, we decided to just give it a break for a while. After all, I figured it would be hard for me to get pregnant anyways with my health history (endometriosis & Crohns Disease). After we stopped trying to get pregnant, that's when we conceived :) I have a fairly regular 27-28 day cycle with ovulation falling around CD 13-14. DPO 1-8: literally no symptoms at all. {I recognized more "symptoms" in the months I didn't conceive than I did this month!} DPO 9: feeling very nauseated this morning and afternoon until around 2:00. {didn't think anything of it since a coworker of mine had just gotten over the stomach bug}. DPO 10: nausea in the morning and afternoon until around 1:30 or 2:00; fatigued (normal PMS symptom for me, though) DPO 11: {morning} no nausea; {evening} light pink, "gooey" spotting (thought I was starting my period 5 days early) DPO 12: no spotting, very dry; no symptoms except fatigued. DPO 13: thinking for sure it would be a negative pregnancy test, I took an Internet cheapie anyways. BFP!!!! (Test line appeared before control line). In disbelief, I took another one. Another BFP!! {cue total shock!} My best friend suggested that I go to the store immediately and get a digital test. So I did. Results: PREGNANT 2-3 WEEKS! Crazy shocked. DPO 14-15: fatigued & moody (crying, laughing, and mad -- at crazy things -- all within 30 minutes). DPO 16: blood test confirmed pregnancy at doctor's office; confirmed 4 weeks along at this point DPO 16-20: nauseous from around 10-1:30 every day; very tired all of the time; extremely hungry but can't seem to eat a lot at a time (I get full very easily); VERY sensitive to smells; very emotional. I hope this story gives hope to someone battling endometriosis and/or Crohn's disease! God has a plan & will fulfill His plan at just the right time! Hang in there, and God bless :)

BFP with OPK, Baby Aspirin & Soft Cups!

I've been stalking these boards for the past couple of months and thought I'd share my story hoping it may help others, since I found lots of good advice and stories here! Me: 37, He: 35 This will be both of our first. Mirena IUD came out in January after 10 years of virtually no periods. Got my period back right away. May, started using the Ovia app on my smartphone. Super duper helpful! I didn't do any temping, but AF is fairly regular (~25-28 day typical) and I checked CM during the week up to predicted O. July I bought OPK & Preseed, planning to use both. Started taking a daily baby aspirin since my last couple of periods have been brown color, a little light, and sluggish. Have been on prenatal vitamins since December. 7/31, Ovia app told me my fertile window was starting the day we left to go on a big family camping trip several hours away. So I packed the OPK. I would have packed the Preseed, but our puppy decided it made a delicious treat and ate the whole tube the day before we left - only got to use it once - one expensive puppy-treat, LOL! On the way to the campsite I told hubby that we had to stop at the store - he was amused when I told him what I was up to with the Soft Cups but game for whatever. So, in 100 degree afternoon heat the next day I got a + OPK. We sneaked away for some quick alone time in the tent (not super fun - it was soooo hot!). When it was time, he pulled out and finished in the cup - hah! I inserted the cup and left it in for about 5 hours. Next day, same thing - sweaty quickie finished in the cup, inserted and this time left it in for 12 hours. When I finally removed it, it was pretty much empty! Next day, we did 'regular' BD in our bed (in air conditioning!) before going to sleep for the night. So, here's the summary timeline: 7/29 - BD 7/30 - BD, first day of fertile window 7/31 - long day driving 8/1 - EWCM, + OPK, BD, finished in Soft Cup, inserted, left in for 5 hours 8/2 - EWCM, ovulation pain right side, BD, finished in Soft Cup, inserted, left in for 12 hours 8/3 - EWCM, + OPK, BD before sleeping, ovulation twinges right side 8/4 - tender bbs, watery/clear CM, diarrhea, probably O'd today 8/5 - Begin TWW: creamy CM, tender bbs, sore nipples, constipation 8/6 - creamy CM, bbs fine (worried about drop in Progesterone), + appetite, indigestion, high libido 8/7 - no CM, bbs sore, indigestion, crazy bloating and terrible gas, high libido 8/8 - creamy CM, tender bbs, high libido, crazy bloating, really offensive gas, crazy high libido- starting to notice things are unusual 8/9 - creamy CM, tender bbs, weirdly high libido 8/10 - feeling down today (normal PMS for me), creamy CM, sore bbs, indigestion, still lots of bloating and offensive gas - not typical for me 8/11 - no CM, tender bbs, constipation (not normal for me), bloating, still so terribly gassy! Hubby wonders why I've been so gassy these past few days (sorry honey!) 8/12 - approx. 7-8 DPO, brown implantation bleeding! I never spot before my period, so I'm really excited, bloated, sore bbs, gassy, constipated 8/13 - brown implantation spotting, very light - trying to hold out for EPT - still bloated, gassy, sore bbs, slight cramps right side 8/14 - very very light implantation spotting, dark brown - bloated, gassy, super sore bbs, a little crampy 8/15 - EPT with FMU - very faint BFP! still spotting brown a tiny tiny bit 8/16 - going on another weekend trip with hubby. Woke up early in our cabin, took one of the digital tests that said... Pregnant! Put it in a box with a ribbon. Hubby looked worried and asked if he forgot an anniversary. When he opened the box - at first he laughed thinking I was playing a joke, then his face changed... he exclaimed "Oh!" and cried a little - big hugs. We both cried and laughed for a few minutes. 8/17 - still super bloated, a little nauseous & still gassy, insomnia 8/18 - bloating better, feeling almost normal except indigestion, BFP this morning. 8/19 - insomnia, sore bbs, indigestion, would have seen AF by now, but hopefully won't see her until April! New pregnancy app tells me my due date is April 26th - my birthday!! We're overjoyed. I hope this helps - I think the soft cups really helped us!

BFP!! 8dp5dt

This is my second attempt to post my BFP, the first time I tried was on the day after I got my first very faint positive on 8dp5dt when I started spotting.. I didnt do it then because I got terrified that I was actually having a CP as I already had one about 18 months ago... so i decided to wait a bit longer before I shared the news. Background... Me (39 going on 40 next month) DH (41) I have a wonderful daughter (11yrs) from previous marriage, got pregnant by accident and thought it was extremely easy to get pregnant... life has a way of showing you the truth! After remarrying started ttc right away as I had just turned 36 and wanted to have my kids not that far apart... again life showing me the reality of how thing work!!! We tried for 1.5 years and nothing, OBY-GYN send us to fertility specialist... how dare he??? I'm so healthy and fertile!! punch in face number one, You have your uterus covered in polyps, cannot hold a pregnancy with uterus like that you need to get a hysteroscopy. :-S Afterwards doctor recommended at list to try IUI, but he recommends IVF because of my age... again I was in disbelief! I'm healthy, I exercise, eat properly, age with grandma!!@#$$@! so we tried non assisted IUI... BFN of course! I was an idiot and doing IVF made me feel sick and wasn't! so we only did the one IUI and since it didnt work I thought that's fine, because they couldn't find anything wrong with us, except the polyps and they removed them... Sure enough 2 months later I was late :-D I always have been a swiss clock when it comes to AF... so I tested the they after I missed my period and got a faint BFP!!! In your face fertility doctors!!! I'm pregnant as I knew I would be! made my appointment with my regular OBY-GYN for the following week... and just 5 days after my " good news" I started bleeding... of course panic and called the doctor to go in early... when I arrived the spotting was not as light as early in the morning and the nurse made sure she pointed that out, as if I couldn't see the freaking pee cup all tinted with blood and my heart falling into pieces....:-( The doctor said we dont even get a positive on the urine test are you sure you got a positive... i was really frustrated with that doctor's office because of their lack of empathy!!!! basically the next days was full blown period that lasted 7 days! so i'm pretty sure there was something in there that just didnt stick. I decided ( my DH had no choice) that we would continue trying naturally and if by 39 we didnt get pregnant, we would visit the fertility doctors again They received us with the same positive attitude as usual, now I said I want IVF right away! doctor was on board but warned me about the insurance, and not to get frustrated... of course that didnt happened I got frustrated when my insurance had a maximum life expense and requires that you do at least 3 IUIs before you move to IVF, now 2 years after the first time I saw them my AMH was lower than expected for my age... so basically chances getting smaller and silly insurance have the same requirements regardless of your values. the only good nes is that they counted the IUI we had 2 years ago as the first one. Ready for IUI #2, pop me with drugs and get me ready to be pregnant!!! :) oops we can't, you now have cysts in your ovaries, that are producing hormones, and we cannot give more because we risk making them bigger... you need to be on bcp :-( :-( 2 cycles came and go until finally those things started to go away. Now ready and on Clomid, only one follicle with the right measurments... good sperm count... now 2ww... my boobs were so sore that anything touch them and I felt like they were going to break... hopes getting high I'm having symptoms! result: BFN. Ok, now IUI#3, same drill, BFN... but finally we are ready to go for IVF, right? well no, because after the IUI one of follicles still there and is now cyst almost 35mm big... so you have to take bcp again! One week on bcp, cyst still there and getting stronger!! I hate you cyst!!! doctor put me on double bcp per day, i was definitevely feeling the hormone crazyness... but finally after full cycle on double dosis the cyst stopped producing hormones, but was still there same size, but my doctor, says it's ok we can go ahead and start you on your IVF meds. My cycle was a little aggressive, I had to take 3 vials of Menopur + 325 units of Follistim and Omnitrope 5ml per day, after a few days values still low for the amount of drugs so I was bumped to 4 vials of menopur and 375 of follistim, kept Omnitrope the same. Stims lasted 15 days!!! after breaking the bank to pay for all this drugs, my insurance called t say that I have exhausted my limit and now everything is out pf pocket. You know relaxing times... Finally we start seeing progress and i produced about 11 follicles, however about 4-5 were below 15mm... a couple were already 25mm so by day 15 we were done and now get ready for retrieval.

BFP at 36 years old using OPKs

Hi you lovely ladies, As so many of you I have been stalking this forum (for years) and especially within the past 4 months. A bit of background info: I've had a surprise BFP about 4.5 years ago. DH and I had just started to get over the shock (as I had been on the pill) and were really looking forward to being a family - when that pregnancy ended in a MC at 6 weeks. I was so heartbroken, looking back I should have gone to counselling. It took me a long time to move on. But that also made me realise how much I wanted a baby! However because of personal circumstances we waited another 3 years until we gave it a shot. I finally came off the pill 1.5 years ago and we were going to let it happen naturally, without pressure. Well, nothing happened. My cycles were all over the place, from 24 days to 39 days. Additionally I found out that I had hyperthyroidism and my TSH was around 5, when it should be between 1-2 generally and around 1 when you are actively trying to conceive, so it was way too high to support a pregnancy. This might have been the cause for my earlier MC. Fortunately was easily fixed by taking one magic little pill each morning (for the rest of my life) and my blood tests now show a TSH about 1. 4 cycles ago I started using OPKs to give us a better chance at catching the egg. 3 cycles I tested positive on OPKs and we BD at the right times before and after the positive result, however the 4th time was a charm :) I am 36, DH is 38. Here are my symptoms: CD 10: BD CD 11-19: OPKs negative (light line) CD 14: BD CD 15: BD CD 19-22: OPKs negative (but progressively darker) CD 20: BD early morning CD 21: watery CM, nipples slightly stingy CD 22: BD at noon. watery CM, some pinching and tugging around ovaries, nipples sensitive CD 23 + OPK positive: BD again late at night. creamy to watery CM. Nipples not longer sensitive. 1 DPO: nips painful. wet and creamy CM 2 DPO: ate some pineapple (incl. core). creamy to sticky CM. Sensitive nips 3 DPO: ate some pineapple (incl. core). creamy CM. Nips still a little sensitive 4 DPO: ate some pineapple (incl. core). chunky sticky CM. Nips quite stingy. Breasts feel full. Sharp shooting pain in uterus but only once. It's too early for implantation anyhow. 5 DPO: ate some pineapple (incl. core). chunky sticky CM. Nips hardly sensitive :(. Nauseous at 8:30am but then okay. stayed at work late. 6 DPO: ate some pineapple (incl. core). Woke up realising that I dreamt I was pregnant! It was a weird dream where i was in a futuristic place where a machine tested my functions and statistics. On the screen of the machine it mentioned that I had low blood pressure but this was not harmful to my baby. Baby??? Nips normal. Some pulsating twinges down below. Slightly pink crusty CM in the evening. Stared at it pathetically for what felt like hours trying to figure out if it was pink or not, or if I was nuts. The 2 week wait does strange things to us usually sensible women! 7 DPO: ate some pineapple (incl. core). Woke up realising that I dreamt I was pregnant AGAIN! Even weirder dream I swapped body with another woman just for fun. Suddenly I realised that that woman might not know that my body was pregnant and that she would unwittingly drink alcohol and endanger the embryo. She was gone somewhere and DH and I had to run and find her. How very very strange. Nips normal, don't feel pregnant at all. Sticky CM. 8 DPO: Nothing. Breasts seem full but that's normal before my period. Sticky CM. 9 DPO: Constipated. Feel stuffed and like not enough space down there. Bloated and fat. Tired and procrastinating at work. Clear CM, not a lot of it some slightly watery. Bra seems tight/too small. 10 DPO: DH and my anniversary :). Nothing besides tired and some backache. Still constipated and fat feeling, if I manage to squeeze out anything it's more like rabbit poop. But feel nothing special. Breasts still feeling full but that's about it. CM between sticky and creamy. Skin is really clearing up. 11 DPO: Breasts feel bigger and slightly sore around the sides and below upon waking. Still a little constipated. DH asks me if I am pregnant as he noticed 'your boobs are popping', haha, I take this as a compliment! They are normally a standard sort of medium sized, feel slightly larger now though. Usually around this time in my cycle they kind of deflate a little. I notice I need to pee every hour or so.

"AF" was IB!!! BFP and SHOCKED!!!

The title is a mouthful in itself!! After a short "AF" starting on the 9th of this month and ending last night (the 11th), I am SUPRISED, yet HAPPY to say we are having another BABY!! I was very let down when I kept getting BFNs at what I thought was 9, 10, and 11 dpo. So after the 5th, I stopped testing. "AF" came 4 days later. This is our 3rd cycle TTC after getting my PPAF back from pumping BM. We unfortunately lost our Tubal Reversal miracle baby after she lived for a month in the NICU due to NEC. She was hastily delivered at 25weeks gestation due to me developing sever Pre E (which was rare being that she was our 3rd child).We were devastated, to say the least. I mean talk about the worse day of our lives! Our miracle baby was put to rest in early March and we were somewhat on the fence about TTC again out of fear and just plain grief. When my PPAF arrived in May, we prayed and started TTC again. DH is military (Army) and no time is better than the present because he will be deployed all of next year. Well 3 cycles later and here we are again, ladies!! I am EXTREMELY NERVOUS!!! The bleeding was like a normal AF (it started off light and picked up a bit by the 2nd day), but wasn't nearly as long. I usually get AF for 5 days. So 3 days of AF kind of tipped me off to test just once more. I mean, I completely tested on a whim, totally expecting to waste a good test (FRER) that could have been used next cycle. But BFP!! Instantly as I sat there on the toilet. LOL!! I went running for my phone to call DH, unfortunately he is training away from home right now. He was JUST as shocked!! When he left I was so down due to AF coming, and a few days later her I am with a BFP!! With my late DD's pregnancy, I did bleed early on too. In fact, I had IB that went on for about 2 weeks. Ultrasounds never showed subchorrionic hemmoraging, or anything showing where a substantial bleed may have come from. OB said it was IB, and that some women have a lot of it. Although I am a little nervous, I suppose my little babies really "borough" themselves in to that uterus!!! The bleeding has since subsided (was never overly heavy or full of clots), and now I feel just a few cramps here and there which is typical. Symptoms: Before I got the IB I SWORE I was cramping, and nauseous, and having all those early "symptoms" we ladies have each month before AF shows up. I tested and used at least 6 test this cycle before the 5th of this month because DH and I were out of town and I wanted to ride on roller coasters and do a lot of walking for our anniversary. ALL BFN!! I stopped testing after that. I am not sure if I could have gotten a positive earlier, but perhaps not because I am assuming what I thought was AF was actually IB. So I am not sure what DPO I am at the moment. I may have been testing too soon, maybe late O, maybe late implantation. Who knows? I stopped tracking O this cycle to just kinda go with the flow, and not work myself up too much this early on TTC. I will say that we did DTD A LOT! We DTD at least EOD. Especially around our anniversary which was the 31st of July. According to ovulation trackers I am due between the 16-18th of April, making conception around July 26-28th. I am still unsure, but we did DTD at LEAST EOD this entire cycle until about August 2nd. Tested for the last time August 5th (BFN). Got "AF/IB" August 9th-11th. Tested today on the 12th, got an INSTANT BFP. It was dark, so I suppose I could have gotten it maybe on the 9th. I definitely would have freaked out then, though, because my IB was NOT light pink or spotting. It was a FLOW. I wouldn't have been the wiser if I weren't TTC. Praying all is good, but my last pregnancy was very similar and all should be fine. GL ladies!!! And I hope this helps someone else. Sorry so long, just wanted to be thorough. Thanks for letting me share my story and I pray this little bean comes home to meet her siblings in April!!
