Dana - I'm sorry you and DH lost one of your babies and I'm praying for your other bean to hold on strong!

Faith - I agree with Dana, my fitness pal is amazon! Also, I know whole 30 is daunting but I loved it and is the only thing that works for me. Let me know and I can give you tips for meals! But I love how all info is free!

Ty Andi.
I’m just hoping that next time we go the doctor can tell us he sees the other baby doing well....I know stupid but we didn’t actually seen the scan empty or anything like that actually we didn’t saw anything bcs it was too blurry and somehow positioned on top of each other ....Im keeping hope alive until our next scan in two weeks.

phew - that took a while to try to catch up on all the news! I'm sure I didn't go back far enough since I've been off the site for over a month.
Nicky - my heart goes out to you. i am happy you were able to implant and sad that you are off the meds and told the embryos were not viable.
Danaa- Fxing your next scan shows good growth
Faith, Angela, whoz - FXing for a BFP
Courtney - it def sounds like you have your hands full
Loz, Andi - hi!
EOE - good luck and baby dust
AFM - gearing up for IVF. retrieval scheduled for December. My protocol has already started though - I'm on birth control, synthroid (for my thyroid), and cabergoline (for the pituitary adenoma), and supplements including coq10, methelated folate, and vitamin D. I start the hgh injections on Wednesday. I'll probably continue to be scarce, but will try to pop on and see how everyone is doing. xo

Hello everyone.

I am still around. Have literally been whiling away my time doing pretty much nothing. I took my last Progesterone supplement on last Wednesday. Its Tues, 10:00 AM here, and no sign of AF yet. Not even spotting. Just waiting for this to get over. But am feeling much better. Like you all mentioned, I am happy at this stage to learn that there can be implantation. Thats a hope. Anyway after this, doc wants to take a break for atleast 2 more cycles, which means we can have another FET only in 2018. We have decided that we will let our remaining 3 embabies go to day 5 this time, and see how it goes. It goes without saying, that I am extremely thankful to all of you for all the support and prayers and wishes, and for just keeping me in your thoughts. I wouldn't have made it without all of you being around.

Danaa: Sorry about losing your one bean. I came back to chk about your scan update. But I am super super excited about the healthy bean thats snuggled up there. Cheers for a healthy 8 months ahead for you now. I can't wait to see a picture of you holding your lil baby in your arms. You are gonna be one awesome mother. Love and Hugs.

Courtney: I am sorry about your dad. I hope he feels better soon. I really hope you are finding some time to rest amongst all of this. Don't worry about house organization, you will get there eventually.

Star: Good luck with your IVF. Fxing for lots of healthy embryos this time around.

Faith: I am sorry about your bfns. It sucks, and we all know it. Hugs. As far as fibroids are concerned, I have 2 as well, albeit really small ones, and doc said they aren't even in the way, just like yours. Now that I know implantation happened, I don't think they are to blame.

Angela: Its always refreshing to feel your positivity in all your posts. Stay blessed. And congratulations for almost another promotion.

Andi: I hope you are doing better. When is the due date?

Whoz: When do you start IUI? I am really excited for you. Hugs.

Loz: Thanks for popping in. Enjoy your babymoon.

Fly: I hope you and Remi are doing well too.

Wish: If you still pop around, thinking of you.

Nickysy: HUGS. Seeing spotting is such a relief. I pray it goes well for continued releasing with no need for assistance. A new page for you indeed.

Star: Hi there. :) FX for a successful IVF.

Fly: Hi. Yes so much has happened. I hope you and family are doing well.

Danaa: You are still very early. It's amazing they could even tell one if the beans was not viable. Praying your next scan is clearer so you can see baby. HUGS.

AFM:I will be here but unmedicated for the next two cycles until I can get seen again. I don't want to kill my ovaries. It may be that they are already hyperstimulated. My pre O temps have been ridiculously high. I think going off Clomid will help. Going off Progesterone will make my lp shorter but need to cleanse my body. I'll still be here though. Meanwhile, just waiting to start my usual spotting. Which will happen Friday since I'm stopping Progesterone after last night.
Happy Halloween everyone!!! I'm off to dress my lil ghoul for her costume day at school. Hugs

Nicky hugs,I’m so sorry but a fresh start will be good.
Star looking forward to your updates .
Faith I think a break from both clomid and progesterone will do you good plus it will help losing weight.
Faith the doctor actually have not seen much of the second baby on the scan,he was looking for it and couldn’t find anything and eventually he saw something very blurry on top of the other baby,kinda of hard to explain but he couldn’t measure it or anything,he said that it might have stopped growing or we might see more on the next scan but I felt like he said that bcs my husband pushed for it lol.
It was all so weird.
Fly good to see you here.

Dana, great news about the one little bean you've got, I will keep everything crossed for your little family. I'm sorry about the other embryo.
Nicky, I'm sorry to hear that you've started spotting but I am glad you are taking heart from the successful implantation. I hope your transfer with the remaining embabies goes well.
Faith, a couple of cycles unmedicated might help, if nothing else it might be a relief for you mentally/emotionally for a little while.
Eoe, sorry for the short personals and I hope you are all well, work is crazy at the moment and I don't have much time left in the office to get things sorted! I did hear back that I have the all clear on my gestational diabetes test and am feeling very relieved about that. In other news, DH found out we are having a boy, the doctor let it slip at our last appointment, but thankfully he is excited rather than being disappointed the surprise was ruined. Love to you all and sending baby dust everyone's way!

Danaa I'm so glad you saw a healthy baby but very sorry you might've lost another baby. That's exactly what happened with me this last time. It was too early for a heartbeat but one sac was well formed and looked good and the other looked like it stopped growing as well. The next ultrasound the one had disappeared. I think that is what my early bleeding was. When do you go back to the Dr again?

Faith I I hope all goes well and you get to do your you soon. I know losing the weight is so hard and don't beat yourself up about it. I used my fitness pal too in the past. It does help. I'm glad you have continued to press on and not give up!

Nicky I hope you are hanging in there. Hugs sweetie!

I had a rather rough day but feeling better at the moment. My Dr started me on lexapro today. I know it takes awhile to work but hopefully not too long. I just keep telling myself this is temporary and I'll get through it. I know everything from crazy pregnancy to having baby early, being in nicu to my dad had all contributed! My dad still isn't any better. He doesn't have any major other health problems so he could very well live a long life but just in this state. That's what is so sad. He's like a 69 year old child. When I have a chase I'll have to upload a recent pic of Ben. He's a little over 6 lbs now. Cute as can be and such a snuggler!

Courtney - You've been through a lot! So much in so little, it's only natural to feel how you're feeling. Once the lexapro kicks in you'll be feeling a lot better. It's good to remind yourself it's only temporary! hang in in there. xoxo

Dana - That's quite interesting and hopeful! When is your next scan again?

Loz - oh nooo that stinks! It's good DH was excited about it though.

Nicky - hugs I know a new chapter isn't easy but I'm sure there is a rainbow baby in your future!

Star - I'm excited to hear about your retrieval!

Faith - I agree with dana, taking a break from the clomid will probably do some good to help with the weight! I had to take breaks from clomid and I think I benefited from it! Sometimes we just need that!

AFM - yesterday I had to get an U/S because I was measuring behind, which because I'm so tall they think my belly is just growing up rather than out. But it hasn't grown in two weeks. The scan showed he's measuring about 2 weeks behind in his GA. They ran a lot of tests on him and he passed everything which makes me feel good but I am still naturally worried. They told me everything is ok and he is probably just a smaller baby but I can't help but worry. I'm almost 37 weeks and he's only about 5lbs right now. I guess he's suppose to be about 6.5lbs. They did reassure me that he could be about to go through a growth spurt so I'll see at my next appointment. Didn't sleep much last night as my anxiety is rather high worrying he will not grow by my next appointment. I have to trust that everything is ok. I'm just very surprised at this small baby thing as I am pretty tall and DH isn't small himself, so we were expecting a bigger baby.

Andi remember my baby wss very small doing the same thing and he was perfectly healthy but only 4 lbs. Try not to worry and more than likely all will be fine. My little guy did everything he was suppose to on his own when he was born. If he doesn't grow by next appt they may have you deliver early but that's only because he may grow better outside than in but that's great he's passing all of his stuff too. I know the anxiety about this is very real and I was a nervous wreck but try to draw some hour from what we just went through. I met a lady in the nicu that was about the same as you and her baby dud same thing as what you are describing. He was born at 37 weeks healthy as well just small. If they are smaller they may have to stay in nicu but it's only precaution which is totally worth it.

Thank you courtney! This makes me feel a tad better. I remember Ben had some issues and is why you delivered early but I couldn't remember if it was the same thing that was happening to be or not. When did they deliver him again at 35 weeks?

Andi Ben was right at 36 weeks. I had a steroid shot the day before and the day of delivery. 37 weeks is considered full term so I'm sure your baby will be just fine even if you deliver early.

Thank you danaa
