New Beginnings

Postby Danaa » Wed Oct 18, 2017 3:49 am

We are all embarking on a new stage of our journey and I find it fitting to honor that with a new home.


UPDATE:

Courtney had her baby
Andi and Lolz are having healthy pregnancies
Dana just got pregnant (twins? tba)
NIcky just had a transfer (we should know the results soon)
MK trying naturally
Faith making preparations for IUI
Whoz doing monitored cycle and then possibly timed intercourse cycles/IUI
Fly had her baby and may try for another soon

May this new one gets filled with baby pictures,ultrasound scans and positive hpts!!!

Thanks for new home. Nicky I'm hoping and praying that your hcg doubles with your next draw and all is finE. I know this is hard harder than all the rest of the months of trying because ivf is your best chance of conceiving but many get late implantation and sometimes it takes people several times of ivf. Plus you put a ton of money into ivf. Don't give up yet on this cycle yet. When is your next draw? Hugs girl.

Girls I have something going on non stop. Ben and I are great but my dad is in the hospital. He has severe dementia. Hee can barely walk and barely talk. He's also a severe alcoholic but he's not drank since last Sat since he's been on hospital. I've been staying with him. He's not able to take care off him self so we are looking for a long term care facility. Just so much going on so I will be back as I can :(

Danaa: Thank you for the new thread. Our old one was getting very big. Well, I don't want to sound like a sour puss but I still like the old name. I'm still sad for Nickysy and those of us still waiting. Its nothing against you of course. I should have said some thing before but I just figured we wouldn't change the name yet. But that's just me. HUGS

Courtney: Goodness that is a lot to be taken on right now. Totally understandable that you will be away a bit. Praying he is well taken care of where ever you find a place for him. Dementia is so sad to see take over our loved lones. I always say there is a part to them that still understands but can't send a straight message out. My boss brings her father alcohol to the hospital. He is very old and has some conditions and they allow it. I think more so when he has to be taken to rehab centers. We don't know how long any of us have so I guess they are just going for comfort versus taken away one thing that dulls the pain during his quite possibly last months alive. Well, God speed with all you need so you can get back to some kind of normalcy with your family. HUGS

Hi EOE HUGS

AFM: (throws hands up in air) I dunno. I'm just in my cycle with an expected true O some day soon. Meanwhile, making my tootsie - roll off some pounds as much as I can each week. Hope every one is doing ok and staying warm as it hits winter.

Courtney im happy Ben is doing well and I’m really sorry to hear about ur dad....it must be heartbreaking,i hope he feels better soon...I know he can’t be “cured” but at least out of the hospital.
Faith I apologize.... I made a rush decision...i truly feel horrible i didn’t asked again about the name...when I asked and no one said another name I just went with this one,if you want we can recreate a new one under the name we had before.

Danaa: I'm sorry, I wasn't trying to make you feel bad. I know your lil butt is happy to the moon. You didn't mean any harm. I don't think it should be changed now. I was just crying after the fact because I wasn't ready. Maybe it was time?? Anyway, lets talk about happier things.

When do you plan to do the reveal to family or have the beans been spilled already?? :D

I have not told my side of the family and I think I’m going to wait a little longer.
Believe it or not I’m not 100% happy,as you well know I have a looong road ahead of me.
I miss my boys and what could’ve been and i hate that is all so stressful.
I believe it was time bcs we are all much more closer to seeing our dream come true but i understand what ur saying and again I apologize.

Faith, I am so glad you can be honest with us and open up and we can be loving and gracious to each other.

Dana, it doesn't bother me at all! I am so excited about your beta.

Nicky, I am waiting to hear from you. Most of my friends got their BFP in their second round of IVF.

Lolz, when do you get results?

AFM, the surgeon who did my lap said that she believes the endo was causing my infertility and thinks we at least have a shot now. I like her. I hate the other specialist. haha

Momma - sorry to hear about your dad. That must be hard right now!

Faith - totally understandable! Dana, maybe we should create a new name.

Whoz - go with the one you like!! I had one doctor tell us we had a 5% chance and the one I have now tell us we still had a 60% chance. I feel like each doctor has their own opinion and going with one you like is so important!

Danaa: I understand how your happiness is tinged with great saddness. I'm just very happy you did not stop trying. You have so much more resolve than me. Man, if I got a bfp my whole neighborhood would know..lol. I'd go crazy with laughter and tears relishing every moment I can make that pee stick toss up a test line...lol.
I hope when I get preggers I can magically have two babies. My husband seems ok with twins but when I jokes about triplets he almost passed out.hahahaha.
Can't wait to hear how many buns you in there!!!

Whoz: Thank you. You are all my ttc sisters and I feel we all care about how each other feels. Danaa proved it by understanding my whining and not telling me to go stuff it...lol.
See, ha, even your surgeon agreed that it was the endo. The other RE is probably burned out and not concerned with the plight of not getting preggy or losing our little ones too soon. I say get another profession if you can't be bothered to really look at a person's situation and explore more ways to help with conception. Praying we can find that bfp at the end of the rainbow here soon.

Andia: Good point! Go with the one you like. You shouldn't leave your Dr. Office all depressed each time because your opinions clash. I may not have the best health care but I can see any OB that I want so I just went to a new one until I found one I liked. Granted non truly help with fertility I was still able to get clomid and progesterone.
How are you and baby doing?

Faith have you O yet?as for me telling my family well sometimes I get the urge to tell them but I much rather wait until I’m somewhat “safe” maybe before the cerclage,I completely understand what ur saying though,I was the same with my first two transfers,everyone knew right away.

I just heard from the lab. Beta came back at 48 (20th Oct). It was 17 on 16th. Def not doubling with time, but it did increase. What I am supposed to think now? Looks like I am heading towards a chemical.Will be able to talk to doc only in another 4-5 hours time.
