Lol, Mommy...that made me smile :)

Thanks for starting the new board, Alice. How are you doing...still waiting?

I'm supposed to officially test tomorrow, and while I'm trying to stay positive, I'm suddenly not feeling so great about this cycle. I've been taking Prometerium for the first time this cycle, and I've been having lots of symptoms, but apparently pg symptoms and Progesterone side effects are closely related. Plus I had a temp drop on 11dpiui and again this morning at 13dpiui. Granted, I haven't been sleeping more than a couple of hours at a time, but it was still a drop :( I tested yesterday with a stark white bfn. I know af should be delayed with Prometrium, so I'm supposed to test tomorrow and stop the med if it's negative and wait for af. Was so hopeful that this was our cycle with 3 follies and an excellent post wash count.

How is everyone?

I'm still waiting for my follow up tomorrow to get my official results, and am keeping busy with the sweetheart little baby I am taking care of during the day now. He is just so cute. :)

Hello Ladies,

I'm back!!! Things have finally settled down a bit. It's taken me a while to figure out how to upload a photo small enough but I think I finally figured it out.

TTC, I hope this round of dpiui works for you. I saw from your signature that you had 3 follicles that were good size. That's great. FX'ed for the bfp.

Alice, has your AF shown yet? It must be so hard for you being in this limbo. Know that we are here to support you in anyway you need.

MrsJessica, I am sorry you had to deal with a yeast infection. I agree with others in that the first trimester can be hard to get through. All the worries and unchartered territory make it very stressful. Hang in there and try to focus on things that interest you as a distraction. When do you go for your first scan?

Auberry2, I am so sorry to about your HSG tests. I may be slightly behind so forgive me if I have missed this but have you had any updates on this? Maybe with these results something can be done to get you on the path towards a baby. I truly wish a solution can be found for your situation and you will be able to hold your baby in the near future.

Mommy2B….2B not for long!!! How are you feeling? Excited? Nervous? Can't wait to hear about your birthing story. Hope all goes well for you and baby. Also, it will be great to find out whether you have a boy or a girl. Any feelings either way?

Jazlynn, how are you doing? Are you still have braxton hicks? I hope your pregnancy is going well. How many weeks are you now, 32-33 weeks? Well almost there.

Bigsurprise, how are you doing? I am assuming you have made or am making your big move. Hope that goes alright. Love to hear updates on your situation.

Anyone else? Did I miss anyone?

Jayda is doing well. She has now regained all the weigh she lost immediately after birth and has surpassed her birth weight at a whopping 5lb4oz. She is on track with gaining about an ounce a day. I am doing okay. I seem to be struggling a bit the with breast feeding, something I didn't have to deal with the first time. I was told at the hospital that breast feeding can really tire preemies out so to limit my time to about 10 minutes and then ramp up. The problem is that some feeds, Jayda won't latch no matter how hard I try, change positions, etc. Or she latches and sucks like 5 times and then completely stops and falls asleep. I am trying not to get discouraged and be patient, but I really don't like the idea of pumping and feeding from a bottle.

Gooey, I want to try to give you some encourgement for Jayda getting so tired during feeds. The baby boy I am taking care of was a micro preemie (his adjusted age is 3 months old yesterday, his birthday is in September) and he still gets tired during nursing or bottle feeds, but, the bigger and stronger he gets the better he is at making it through a feed without wearing out. So, just take heart, it may take a while but as she gets stronger latching and nursing may just fall into place beautifully. (((Hugs))) I'm sorry it is tough right now. Oh, and Jayda is such a precious lamb :) Congrats on her, mama.

AFM, I go in to talk to my OB/GYN about the official test results at 2:15 this afternoon and have some blood work done. I am sure she and I will also start discussing options, I know she wants to refer me to an RE.

Well. My follow up is finished and the news is that to have a baby I will have to have surgery to remove both fallopian tubes and then go through IVF. I have been referred to an awesome RE and just have to make my appointment, after I have discussed all of this with DH, of course. I don't know what to think or feel right now. IVF is so expensive, and I really didn't want to do anything that intense, but as much as I thought I didn't want it I can't help but feel drawn to it, because I really want another baby. I have a lot to pray about.

Auberry2, thank you for your words of encouragement. I agree with you and will be patient. I had a good day today feeding wise. I am helping the process but expressing the same time she is latched to help her out. It seems to help. I will also talk with a lactation consultant to see if there is anything else I could do.

Wow, I am sorry to hear about your update. It must have taken both you and your husband by surprise. I guess it is good to know that the path towards you having your baby. But it certainly not the way you probably had pictured things to happen. Well, I am happy to hear that you have a wonderful RE that can help you through the process. I pray for you to give you the strength you need to get you though this and that you are able to financially able to proceed with the IVF. ((((Hugs))))

I am glad to have found the page!
@Gooey congrats on Jayda she is gorgeous
@Auberry I am so sorry to hear your update, I myself struggled with the idea of IVF and especially the costs. Take it one day at a time.

AFM I am now 6W 1day pregnant! I am feeling better now I get cramps here and there and I am sleepy by 9, my boobs have grown a full cup size but I am so happy everytime I think there is a little bean in my belly. Monday we officially get to meet him/her. ALSO big update ladies we moved up our wedding to April 4th because of OBVIOUS reasons haha but the changes were made so smoothly and effortlessly I almost feel like God meant all this to happen at the time it did. Can't help but feel so emotional!. I had to put planning and making decorations and arrangements on overdrive these weeks but it has made me feel good and not so anxious for October to come I have a lot to plan for the bean! hope everyone has an awesome day!

Gooey-Jayda is absolutely beautiful! Congratulations, mama. Hopefully each day of feeding gets better and better!

Auberry-so sorry to hear about your news from the doc. I'm glad you've been referred to a great RE though...hopefully time and prayers will guide you down the right path for you guys. Hugs!

MrsJessica-wow! You are one busy bee! I bet you're so very excited to see your lil bean. I'm excited for you! And moving the wedding up? It's crunch time, and sounds like you have it all under control! Are you still planning your Spain trip, or is that on hold?
