Thanks for starting the new thread, Penny!

Lisa and Alex are SO getting knocked up on this thread! Anyone else that wants to join too! Lol.

Girls, I've talked with Lisa and her betas went down so it looks like she had a chemical pregnancy... :( I know a lot of us have been through something like that so I know we will all keep her in our thoughts. We are all here for you, Lisa!!!

Hey y'all!!

Lisa- So sorry to hear about the betas, keeping you in my prayers darling. We are here for any venting or support that you may need!

Alex- So exciting that the stims are starting soon! Sorry you had such a sucky period, heres hoping to those being nonexistent for a good while!! Hope everything ends up ok with DH's family.

Penny- I think you are such a sweet and kind person to have not lost your temper on SIL, she sounds even more horrible with every update she is included in. Thankfully you have been getting registry items from family.

AFM- Hudson and I are doing pretty well. We have a decent routine (for now, it won't work when I am back to work) that seems to be helping us function pretty well. He had a weight check on Monday and he is 3 ounces under his birthweight still so I have to take him back for another weight check on Friday. We (DH and I) decided to do the exclusive pumping like originally planned so we can actually see how much he is eating- Regular ole breastfeeding was pretty convenient (other than super sore nipples), it is crazy how much faster the feedings go with bottles over the breast. I am about to go out to buy new bottles...tried the Avent free natural that I got as a free trial today and Hud spits up a lot less and doesn't get the hiccups with this bottle so we are going to hold his tommee tippees for a few months...the boy just sucks SO hard! Hud-man lost his umbilical cord stub this morning!
Yesterday was Hudson's newborn photos; they should be precious. My mom was keeping an eye on Hud while the photog went to her car for a basket for him to lay in and snapped this pic of him in one of the little outfits. It was taken with her iPhone and I just used the filters/edits on the iPhone and it came out pretty precious. I can't wait to see his legit pictures because the chick had some great ones in her portfolio. *So I cannot make the picture attach via the computer so I will post it soon from my phone

Penny, I have no clue!!! I haven't even had time to prepare anything or look at anything.... I've been so overwhelmed with work and with just trying to get to my ultrasounds and blood tests! Sneaking out of work has been super stressful.

Oh deep breath honey. You can do this! For me, I think the first 5 or so shots are pm shots right? Have you watched any of the videos online? The pharmacy I used had a ton of helpful videos that I watched 800x before the first injection. And!! Today is Friday so get through today and the weekend is the 100x less stressful and by Monday you'll be a pro. The first few are always the hardest. :)

PS, if you have to inject ganirellix (comes in prefilled syringe) push hard and fast. It stops ovulation so if you use it, it'll be later like day 6 or so. The needle seems to be duller or something and it kinda bounces off your skin if you don't go fast and hard. There are a ton of women who had the same problem - Search YouTube!! I watched 7 or so video diaries of ivf girls on YouTube and their injection stories.

Alex- how did the first injections go? Super excited for your ivf journey, praying for its success!

Afm- Hudson doesn't have to have any more weight checks since he weighed in above his birth weight yesterday, finally! Little guy is now 7 lb 2.5 oz! That's some great gains this week since Monday he was 6 lb 10 oz! No more doctor visits for him until his 2 month appointment.

Ab, thx for asking -- first injection went well-ish... I spent an hour reading the instructions and doing calculations to make sure I got the doses right. I over-diluted with saline so I actually had to inject myself twice to get all the meds in me, as I only had 1cc syringes. But I know what to fix for tonight, so I think I'm good.

Congrats on getting hud's weight up!! Hopefully we're on an upward trend that'll stick.
