Wishing & Waiting for #1, Part 21

Postby Lisa79 » Tue Apr 12, 2011 8:28 am

Thanks for stopping by, new members are always welcome! We are a group of women that are either TTC'ing our first baby, or are very aware of what it's like to struggle with TTCing that first baby. We've actually been a group for long enough now (mid-2009) that, while some of us are actively TTCing our first, some of us have had our first baby, some of us are at the end of our TTC journey, and some of us are expecting number 2! No matter what category we're in, we support and cheer each other on.

Meike - I think it's a girl. They say to look for 3 lines when you are still fairly early like that, because you cant really see the "hamburger" shape yet lol. I'll post my ultrasound picture that said I was having a girl for you to see what I mean.

Lisa- I do see that faint line, hopefully it's not the trigger still and a real bfp!


Afm- Just laying around lol...

Anyway here's the ultrasound pics... I was 20 weeks for these.

Image

Thats when they told us probably a girl because of the lines, hope ya'll can see it good enough. Later on they confirmed definetly girl.

And this is my favorite picture we've gotten so far. I've had a few ultrasounds since then, but her head is always so low that we never get to see it good.

Meike - I'm hopeless when it comes to looking at ultrasounds. I have no idea what I'm looking at. A girl sure would be fun though! I hope that you start feeling better soon.

Lisa - I do see that faint line. I think it's possible it's still the trigger because you're only 8dpo. It could be the start of a faint BFP though. All I know is that my trigger hung around forever. I still had a faint line at 10dpo. I didn't test at 11 and then by 12dpo it was BFN. Good luck!

Audrey - Good luck with your class today!

Sara - Yep, I definitely can't tell what I'm looking at in your girl u/s pic. I can tell that the second one is her head though! I hope you're taking it easy. Your b/f sounds like he's taking great care of you :D

AFM - Nope, I haven't tested yet. AF is due on Saturday so I'm trying to just hold out. If AF doesn't show then I'll test Sunday. Otherwise I'm trying not to test. I'm thinking about calling my RE's office to ask the nurse if we're doing the same meds for our IUI next month or what. I want to know if they are wanting to try something different to help my lining. I'm also really temped to ask them to check my progesterone at 7dpo just to make sure everything's going well. Other than that, a week from today I'll be off of work! :jump:

babydust- Definitely call them :D Would be nice to know what they had planned. Plus like you said, see if they'll do anything to help w/ the lining and all that good stuff :D

Sara- No idea what to even look for in the first u/s lol. OO Have you had or will you have one of those nifty 4D? u/s done? Love looking at those so much! heh Probably not I guess since you're on bed rest.



Yeah, I'm trying not to get excited since it could still be the trigger. I think tomorrow will give me a better answer on if it is or not. If it is, then the line should be gone, if it isn't, well then, the line should still be there and hopefully darker.

I wanted to do the 4-d ultrasound, but now I'm on bed rest so that would make it difficult. Plus I'm kind of thinking she's gonna be here in a few weeks anyway and I'll get to see what she looks like then lol and with my luck we wouldn't get a good shot, her head has been so low that we probably wouldn't get to see her face.

Hi ladies,
Sorry I've bin MIA for a minute. Bin reading but jus dint hav d energy to post.
Babydust, glad work is almost over for u. Wish you'd get ur bfp now so u won't hav to worry about next cycle.
Hey Meike, yay for ur baby girl. Was actually hoping you'd get a girl. Jus love boy and girl combos.
Audrey, hope ur class went well.
Hey Lisa, FX for a darker line today and BFP tomorrow.

Hey and hugs to all d oda ladies.

Afm, have had a pretty rough couple of weeks. Money's been really tight, wat wit me not working and DH not getting as much work as we'd hoped. Our plan b4 I became pg was that one of us wud get a 9 to 5 while d other wud continue freelancing. I was supposed to get d 9 to 5. That's not bin possible cos of all d issues I've had wit dis pg. The strain of living from one paycheck to d next has put a lot of strain on our relationship and caused havoc wit all our plans for getting ready for d baby.

It got so bad that I went to stay a week with my sisters cos d atmosphere at home was so tense cos we were constantly fighting about silly stuff. We were not really communicating. But den when I came back we talked about it and DH told me how he felt inadequate and ashamed cos he cudnt provide all we needed and I tried to reassure him that its not his fault that we've had so many curveballs thrown our way in d last year.
Our relationship is much beta now and even tho we still don't have much money, we r praying he gets a few jobs in d next week or so, jus to take some edge of d pressure.

IJgirl- Aww, I'm sorry everything has been difficult. Glad everything worked out though. Hopefully the money issue will work out as well for you.



afm- Alrighty, it must've still been the trigger yesterday. Boo lol
Oh well, I'm actually ok. Disappointed obviously, but there's still time to get my real BFP.

Took 2 HPTs this morning. The first one had a dimple on it & I didn't want to mistake it for a 2nd line so I took another test.

IJgirl, I'm so glad you and your DH talked and worked it all out. Communication is key! How are you feeling, pregnancy-wise? I really hope the money situation gets better.

Lisa, soooo much time left to get a good, strong BFP! 9 DPO is way early! FXFXFX

Meike, when is your next u/s? I vote it's a girl too, but I can't see those things very well... just a guess!

Cassidy, tax season's almost over! Woooot! here's to a surprise BFP in the meantime :) You're a trooper for holding out on testing. p.s that spiderman cake was super cool

Sara, how are you feeling? Awesome u/s pics. How are you keeping busy on your bedrest? All caught up on tv shows and books or what?

Cool about Chiteacher being preg! I'm in love with her gorgeous baby-- the pic she has as her avatar is amazing. Such a cutie!

AFM, was jsut having lunch with a girlfriend of mine IRL who is just about to start IUI for the first time. She's 34 and has been TTCing for almost 5 years. UGH! I hope with all my heart that she gets that BFP, just as I hope for you girls too!!!

beegee- Good luck to your friend!



afm- BFN today. If I am 10dpo, then AF will show Saturday. I think I may only be 8dpo though looking at my temps. All of my successful O cycles, I've always had a very clear rise and that didn't happen until cd17. I dunno, guess we'll see what happens!

Feeling discouraged though. I mean I did get BFPs both times on 13dpo, but then I remember, oh wait, I m/c'd both times too. SIGH.
Yes the negative Nelly is kicking in! Really trying not to let it, but man.. infertility frickin SUCKS.

Lisa, if you're only ~maybe~ 8dpo, then maybe don't start worrying for another five days if there's no bfp by 13dpo? I know that seems like a lifetime away... hmmmmm. CMON, BFP!!!!!

I know I shouldn't worry so much or get so obsessed lol. About to go watch something on Netflix to take my mind off of it.

I do have SOME good news though. I weigh in every Saturday, for the past 2 days, decided to WI (weigh in) after lunch. I was down a pound both days.
Decided to weigh in today before lunch, and well... here is what it showed. Boy look at my wide feet!
Image
I haven't seen a 1 in front of my weight since I was a teenager!
I mean obviously I still have a lot more to lose, but if it holds up for my official WI on saturday, it means I've reached my first weight loss goal! WOO!

Lisa - Congrats on the weight loss!! :jump:

Hi to everyone else!

I don't have any time for personals right now but I wanted to let you all know that AF started this morning. I'm kind of ticked at DH today because I thought we were on the same page for doing another IUI this month, but he tells he me this morning that not only does he not want to do another IUI this month, he doesn't want to do another one at all :mad: Obviously in 2.5 years it hasn't happened on it's own, I don't understand why he thinks that it will :roll:
