Danaa: Relaxed is the only way to be, ma. You've been through so much. Its all you know to do is patiently (excitedly...lol) wait for your babies to be put in your belly. I'm assuming you are doing two? Or just one. Either way. Your next pregnancy is covered in the blood of Jesus. Nothing shall interfere. God be good to you and your husband with the blessing of little pitter patter of feet soon.
I start peeing on everything insight on Friday. My tests come in these evening but I will not pee on them ( I hope). In either scenario it is too soon for a positive test. I know this by now. :)

Nickysy: How are you coming along? Getting close to time , eh? :)

HI EOE...Hope you are all reading along. Miss you.

AFM: In other news, woke up with a sore throat out of this world. It just keeps getting worse as I work at my computer. I'm chugging warm tea. I hope this is a sign or it is going to suck monkey boots to get bfns and strep. I looked in my mouth and its maroon colored over my tonsils and the roof of my mouth is turning yellow with little red dots....ugh.

Ok, pity party over, back to work.

Hope everyone is doing ok today.

Whoz - good luck on your surgery!!

Dana - I'm feeling excited for you!!

Faith - still hoping AF stays away! And it's still hot here lol. I want fall to arrive!

Will continually try and pop in to see your ladies updates! AFM, baby is kicking up a storm by entire belly moves. The third trimester is not as easy as I thought it would be. I think I just thought it wouldn't bother me at all because of everything I went through so I wasn't prepared for how challenging not being able to simple move can be lol. It's definitely ALL worth it. I'm ready to be active again though.

haha, Andi, We're all so different. I found the first trimester very difficult (anxiety of possibly miscarriage, nausea with vomitting, fatigue big time, not telling many people yet, not feeling the baby move, not having many appointments). Second trimester was better but I got some shots of pain my back around 21 weeks. Then the third trimester was great! I felt great, was walking 3-4 miles a day, and other than random shoots of pain every time, and feeling a bit tired towards the end, it was wonderful! I think I also knew how exhausting the first 6 months of newborn stage is, that I was sort of just savoring my ability to rest. ;-)

We're all so different and it's so interesting!

Whoz: You are awesome if you love the 3rd trimester.. :rofl: I didn't think I would make it at month 7. I was like what is this crap...feels like I'm carrying a boulder around which only wants to roll in the opposite direction of where I want to be...LOL Well I hope your rainbow baby gives you all 3 tri's of good feelings. :hugs:

Andiaa: Its a little hot here but cold in the morning but slowly progressing to just cold. I wish AF would stay away too but the cramps are kicking my butt. I had to take my progesterone suppository earlier tonight. I'm sorry you are feeling the 'weight' of the 3rd trimester. Its joyful to feel the lil one move around but MAN...hehehe...it is a load to bare....with love of course. :wink: Hang in there.

HI EOE: Wondering how its going for everyone else.

AFM: I'm in bed staying off cramps. Start officially testing in the morning. I'll be testing all weekend..lol Ok. Good night.

Hi everyone.

Sorry, been MIA. I combined my travel for work along with my meeting with my doctor. After Saturdays scan at our home town, I was advised for a color doppler scan there on wed. So, things look good. There was a slight increase of RI and PI indices for uterine areteries (still not sure what exactly that entails), so I have been put on clexane injections till transfer. And have the date of transfer, 4th Oct. Honestly, I am still feeling a mixed bag of emotions. Excited, anxious, scared and just wanting the time to get over with. Trying to breathe and relax. We are going for a double transfer of day 3 embryos. My doctor was super nice and explained to us about the entire procedure. In their experience, day 3 transfers have had no difference in rates of pregnancies, compared to day 5. And they prefer in utero embryos as soon as possible. They did give us the choice though. Our 6 embryos are in two straws. So, one straw having 3 embies will be thawed. This way, we will atleast get 2 trials. If this doesn't work this time, we plan to try the next FET with the 2nd straw, taking embies to day 5, and doing blastocyst transfer.

Danaa: 7th oct yay. Glad to hear you are going for a double transfer. And i have no doubt you are gonna get to 40 weeks. Fxing for both of us. My transfer date is 4th Oct, so we are going to be in our tww together.

Faith: You made me laugh so hard with your faithism about the third trimester boulder. I am very happy to hear that clomid helped you with a strong ovulation. Waiting to see your pi pi sticks. Its Fri here, so your day of testing begins.

Andi: All of it is worth it! I am glad you are doing good. Can't wait to meet your precious lil bean.

Loz: Thanks for popping in. Enjoy your work. How are you? Hoping that lil one is keeping cosy.

Star: Its good you are not adding stress. I hope meds are working for you. My TSH came down to 2.83 from 5.04 with one week of 25mg dosage. Modern medicine seems to marvel me all the time.

Whoz: Good luck with your surgery today! Fxed, you are getting preggo soon.

Courtney: Happy to hear that Ben is doing much better. Waiting for both of you to get home now. Take rest.

EOE, hello...

You all are so sweet.

Star: What comes after AF for you?

Courtney: :hugs:

Nickysy: I'm hoping I will be soon too. It will be so nice to get preggo with my buddies.


AFM: I'm in total shock. After testing bfn and seeing my temp drop so severely, I cried a lil in spurts then decided I was going to get help I could afford darn it. God is good. The same office that offered to do my IUI for cheap before offered to do it again WITH a referral to a RE office to clean the sperm for treatment. All said, it will cost me less than $1000 dollars. Granted there will not be any monitoring of my ovaries, I already don't get them monitored on Clomid so I'm ok with it. I will be taking 100mg of clomid next cycle and doing IUI. I want to trigger but you have to have a prescription for that and I don't know of anymore strings to pull.... :rofl:

I was not expecting this to be available to me until after I'd paid close to $3000 dollars for blood tests and HSG (which I still may do).

I'm on cloud9 thinking of the possibility of actually getting pregnant in a few weeks. I have been putting off my cycle 3 testing but I won't this cycle. I will need to know what my FSH, LH, Estrodial levels are doing. If they come back saying my eggs are no good I'll scream. Has anyone has this test done and results explained to them? I feel like our IVF buddies have. Any help would be appreciated.

:D Can't wait to tell hubby the news!!!!
