Hey Ladies! I hope you all had a good weekend. Ours was busy but good :)

Margie, I hope you stick around with us because we always love rooting for more BFP's!! :wink: I hope those supplements will help.

Sept, yikes, sorry to hear about your horrible AF :( I hope that she has packed her bags, and for 9 whole months!! :noaf: Good luck with the Femara this cycle. What happened today at the hospital?

Jess, Zoey is such a little doll. What do DD1 and 2 think of her? Sorry to hear your labour was horrible, you might scare me with your story haha

Hey ladies! So sorry I have been MIA!

Jeep, love, love, love the announcement. So perfect! Congrats on hearing the perfect heartbeat as well!

Congrats Jessica on baby Zoey! Can't wait to hear your birth story. Sorry labor wasn't so great though.

Sept, I'm so glad DH had great results from his testing and that you are finally getting somewhere with answers for you! It must be such a relief!

Ana, how is everything going on your end after treatment? Can you start TTC now?

Hi EOE!!!

Afm, I am MARRIED! Sunday was the big day and it was beautiful! Here is a sneak pic from the photographer...I will try to post some more soon! I'm just so busy catching up at work, ugh.

Jeep - What an ADORABLE announcement! You are definitely showing in that pic of you holding the onesie! Did you post it on facebook yet? What has the reaction been?

Van - What a GORGEOUS photo! You look stunning, and that background is picture-perfect! I also think it's so cool that you can tell your little girl that she was in all of your wedding photos. I'm going to tell Priya when she gets older. Did the photographer take any of your belly? My photographer took one of me forming my hands into a "heart" over my belly. <3 I love it! Congrats!

Margie! Hey girly! We are doing good over here! I hope somewhat AF stays away this month. I felt like she was totally showing up even after I got my BFP...so just because it feels like it, doesn't necessarily mean anything. I don't have any answers for you about HSG, but I can say that two of my friends had one and they didn't say it was terrible or anything...just uncomfortable. When are you getting it done?

AFM, we are in teething hell over here. LOL Canine teeth are awful. Priya has been waking in the night, and fighting me at bedtime. The other night I had to rock her to sleep like I used to when she was 4 months old. It was sweet but I felt so bad for her. It's also flared her eczema back up really badly. Poor thing!!! Next week she will be 11 months old, and we are starting to get her 1st bday party planned. Unbelievable. I feel like I just found out I was pregnant with her. <3 We are doing a minnie mouse theme, and it will be a smaller party since it's at our house...just immediate family and some close friends. :) Teaching is going good, the hospice job is going good...loving working part time! Somehow I feel busier than ever, though. LOL

Ana - Just curious...how difficult was it to get pregnant with DD? Did it take a while, and were there losses before you successfully carried her to term? Just curious. I think alot about trying for #2, since I'll be 32 very soon. Just curious to know how different your experience was with TTC your first?

It was easy breezy. No issues at all. Zip zero nada. She was conceived within a month or two and delivered at 39w3days. Only problem was GD but that runs in my family so not surprising. I delivered her vaginalky no problem at age 34. I started trying for no 2 when she was 14 mo. Apparently the pregnancy set off an immune response in my body. I'm 38 now and thought I'd be done by now and moving chapters in my life. Obviously not the case. I just wish autoimmunity issues with reproduction were more discussed and addressed. I have Drs that would still be telling me it was bad luck and to just keep trying .

Van you beauty! congrats! :) :kiss:

Jeep great pic !

Margie I had a hsg was not pleasant but quick. I took paracetamol before it but still felt horrible cramps and pressure but bearable because it was quick and over in no time. Showed my only tube was ok so was happy. Worth the discomfort.

Thanks Ladies! I picked out the tightest top I could find for the photo because most of my tops are really flowy and I just didn't think it would look right with our hands on my belly trying to point out the fact that I'm pregnant haha.

Mand, yes I posted it to Facebook on Sunday! Surprisingly with all of our jeep buddies no one really commented on the onesie but we received lots of likes and congratulations :)

Margie, Any sign of AF yet? Sorry I never had the HSG, that was my next step and I was supposed to call to book it when my next cycle started, but then I got a BFP instead. I really hope the same thing happens for you!!!

Margie, Sept, Ana, I really think you ladies are on the right track and that some more BFP's are right around the corner!!

Thank you so much ladies!

Hi Margie! I hope AF didn't show. I had the HSG and I'm not going to lie, it was painful! However, it was over so fast that it was tolerable. Let us know how you make out!

Jeep, I'm sure it was great to be able to finally tell everyone :)

Mand, are you still planning on your trip to the beach? I love Minnie Mouse! I'm considering doing the nursery that theme.

Ana, September will be here before you know it! I have a good feeling all of this will do the trick. You are right, it is too bad these autoimmune issues are addressed more readily.

Hi EOE!

I had my anatomy scan yesterday. Everything looks good and Arabella is 9 ounces now...and she has big feet! lol

Me too Margie, just took some knock me out pain meds. My hsg was pretty uneventful. The hardest part was the prep but my uterus is tilted. the procedure itself was quick and painless. I also took a couple ibuprofen beforehand.
