New Thread!!! :D

Babatte - What honeymoon did your brother end up going on? I maybe missed that post. I know you are gearing up for FET. Will your DH be in town during time? I know he was looking for another job with less travel. How is that going? Is your mom still doing better?

kez - Are you loving your new hair colors? I would love to see it. As I type this I forgot where you were in your cycle. I am a bit overwhelmed with stuff right now so I am surprised I remember anything.

zohbeee - You are soooo close now! I hope everything is still going smoothly for you. You were planning on natural child birth correct? I was curious as too if you had planned a c-section when they would want to do it since you had a previous one. Can't wait to see pics of your LO.

motox - Hope your still feeling better and everything is going well. How is your brother doing?

YiYi - Hey Girl! Hope all is well!

Hang - Your vaca sounds nice! Good idea to get all the R&R possible before starting the TTC process.

AFM - Well I have some big news that I still can't believe right now. As you know my step son has been here almost 3 weeks now. One reason I have not been on as much. He is so distracting. I have been more stressed out than I have been in a long time. Thankfully though we seemed to have had a break through last Friday and things have been much better this past week. I was also so sick with mean sinus infection for over a week. In fact, I am still hacking coughing from it. I was suppose to have ovulated on May 12 if you go by my normal 26 day cycle. It had been 26 days for past two months. However, DH was out of town that day and we could only have sex morning of day before he left. When we had sex that day I remember thinking I must not be close to ovulation and due to stress of step son coming maybe my ovulation was delayed. CM seemed to be on the dry side at the time. I can't remember the week after that when we did it or if I thought I was ovulating then either. So, 7 days after supposedly ovulating I got terribly sick running fever and I did that for two days. I don't think It got too high. But boy was I sick for a week. I went to the doctor and got meds and I took a pregnancy test right before I took the first pill. Although I thought it was a real long shot I went for it. It was afternoon pee and in fact I had actually just peed but forgot to test but I squeezed out enough to saturate test. It was negative. No color at all. So I took the medicine and for several days and now finally doing much better but I was due to start June 3rd last friday. Nothing happened so I thought all the stress I have been under must be causing me to start late. So I waited and still nothing. Last night I started googeling anovulatory cycle and thinking I must me starting perimenopause. I decided I was going to call the doc but before thought to do one more test and OMG it says PREGNANT!!!!!
Can't believe it and it fact I am more scared than happy right now. I have been taking my prenatals but have forgotten probably a few time recently. All the stress, sickness, medicine and caffeine I have had these past few weeks has me scared I have already hurt baby. I am going to retest again in the morning because I still can't believe it.

Kierann: That is so great!!!! :jump: :jump: :jump: :jump: :jump: A natural BFP!!!!

Don't worry about taking meds and missing prenatal this early. I remember reading or hearing that baby is not actually effected by what you eat until around the time you or just after you get the BFP. Everything is going great so far for me. I am still shooting for my VBAC so we shall see.

Hang: A vacation sounds great. It has been so long since I have been on one myself. I think that is a good idea to postpone the IVF. Two months are not going to make a difference. I think getting in a better place mentally will do wonders.

Kez: It is almost winter there right? Stay warm. I Hope your tubes are clear.

Thanks zohbeee, I took another test this morning and it says pregnant. So guess it must be real but I am still worried. Problem is I don't know the exact day I got pregnant. I think I should have gotten a positive result when tested a week ago but because I had just peed I think the pee on the test did not have enough hormone in it. If I go strictly by what day I should have ovulated I started running fever 7 DPO and started taking medicine 10 DPO. I took azrithromycin for 3 days. I was also taking cough medicine with guafissen and codeine in it. I did this for several days. Also sucrets. Now, If I ovulated a few days later I would feel more comfortable with it. This is possible because the test says 6 days sooner and it was 3 days before I was due to start. Unless however I ovulated later which would explain the negaitive result because I tested too soon. All this rambling is an indication of me worrying. I wish I wouldnt because there is certainly nothing that can be done about it now.

Kierann OMG what a suprise!!! Congrats :jump: :jump: :jump: :jump: I know it is hard not too worry but don't as I am sure none of the meds will have a negative result.

So I have to get on here quickly as LO is restless. So I had to break down and email my EX yesterday. Well since then we have been having to send about 10 back and forth all day. So I thought OK at least we can do this and not see each other. All is good. Well I leave work this evening and I am told I will be at a meeting on Monday night (nice notice eh??) So my guess is that he will be there. His last email stated it will would be nice to see you again. Nice really because I don't really think it would be that nice??? Anyways I may not have a choice. We have kept everything professional of course no personal talk although he did mention he has been in the area since 1999. I really didn't think my area was that big to miss seeing him[/b]

Thanks Hang, I am working on the trying not to worry. It just was not the
ideal start to my pregnancy. The doc thought even with all I mentioned I am doing pretty good at this point. In other words it could be a lot worse. I have decided not to tell my family or people at work. I am going to take that day by day. Not telling people is causing me a bit of anxiety but at the same time I am afraid to tell. Oh well, it will all work out. I am just praying for another happy healthy baby. I must admit though another girl would be nice because I would like her to have a sister like I never had.

Congrat Kierann :happyforyou:
No worries about what you've "done" to the baby yet. it's less than you think. Doc told me that it actually isn't until they form the umbilical cord that drug, caffeine and what not can hurt them. They have their self-contained little sac of nutrients right now. If they didn't we'd all be in trouble!!

Wow Ladies! Way to keep going with the board. I thought I'd check in after many, many MANY moons so say Hi! I hope all of you are doing well :)

I went back to school, so I really need to get back to studying since I'm in finals week!! But a little procrastination never hurt anyone right? :/ lol Ill be done with this quarter this week, so Ill check in later!

Baby Anica is getting bigger! Here's some pic of her... I think we're gonna start working on #2 soon. Just hope it doesn't take 5 years like the last one!!

kachic - Baby Anica is soooo cute!! How exciting your going to start trying for another. I bet it doesnt take you near as long. Look at me. I am very reserved right now about this pregnancy. I decided to go ahead and tell people because I just want to have faith all is going to be well. However, by this time last time I had already had my progesterone checked and HCG checked twice to make sure all was headed in right direction. Right now, I have no idea what is going on. Kinda scary.

Whew time to try and catch up!

Things are a bit crazy right now. Mom started her chemo last wednesday and I've been a bit busy with her.

Kierann- COngrats Mama! I think your new little one should be okay. I think it's a few weeks before the umbie is attached to you. Have you been to the Dr. yet?

Zohbee- Hows that little girl treating you? Hope you get that Vbac. Oh, I love the birthday pics. Awesome cake! He's growing up so fast!

Hang- really wish I could get a quick vacation in. We were hoping to get one in this month but I have to help with my mother. It really sucks that we have all these vacation points and haven't been able to enjoy them. we just seem to be giving them away left and right. Waiting to hear more about your encounter with the ex.

Kachic- I followed your story on another thread! She is so beautiful! What a blessing!

AFM- Busy busy busy. I did do the 5 k but I had to bail out as we passed my house. Just alittle short from completing it. Got new sneakers and they weren't broken in yet. I got horrible blisters on my heels. ewe they gross.
My Boston had her birthday celebration. She loved the cake but not the pool so much. Got pics. She got really pissed when I put her in a bathing suit the other day. Mom and I laughed our tails off. She graduated from her second training course last saturday. Someone from the church gave my big bro and wife an apartment. (told them to give what they could for rent) I'm just happy to have him out of mom's house. Mom is battling through her first round of chemo. She actually got an appetite yesterday, so i cooked everything she wanted. Have to run her for bloodtest this afternoon and more chemo tomorrow. Dh's birthday was yesterday stil have to get him a bike this week. I'm still on the lupron but estrogen was added to my repretoire for my FET. I really need this to work.
Catch up with you later. too much going on.

zohbeee - I would be worried about having a 9 pound baby vaginally even if I had not had a previous c-section. Wow, my LO was just 6lbs13oz so I can only imagine. Ultimately, you have to do what you feel is best and you are comfortable with. I would love to have a vaginal delivery but I know with getting pregnant so soon after c-section it would not be a good idea. What is the doctor saying?

Babatte - Wow, you have been busy! That is so cute about your little Boston!

wow , so much news in here ladies!!

Congrats Keirann on being preggo naturally! There's nothing you can do about what you took, so try to enjoy your pregnancy and only worry when the doctor tells you to worry!

Zohbee thanks for the pics of Eddies party. Looks like everyone had a good time! 9 pounds does sound scarey, Im sure you will get baby girl out safely, no matter which way it is.

Babatte i think quitting the 5k because of blisters is perfectly acceptable. well done! I loved the story of your boston in a bathing suit..are the pics on your blog? will go over and check after this. Good to hear your mom is doing ok wuth the chemo.

Kachic, thanks for the pics of Anica. She is adorable, congrats!

AFM, i had my RE appointment on thursday. He wants us to do a completely natural cycle..no drugs at all. Thursday was cd 1, and he said we will be doing it this cycle..so in about 2 weeks!!! The only down side is that we have to travel to melbourne for it (2.5 hours drive), but its not so bad. wow..thats pretty cool.

Kez the drive sucks - I did a natural cycle for my FET. It was very easy.

Babette I am just impressed that you even started the 5K

[/b]Kachic wow it has been a while. Your little girl is adorable!!

Kierann how are you feeling??? I can't remember when the nauseousness sets in but it may be soon. Congrats again you must be thrilled.

Zohbee my LO was 9 lbs 6 oz and the doctor said as he was delivery via Csection that he never would of come out. He had a ring on his head from my cervix (poor guy). We went to a C section as after 17 hours he wasn't coming and he was in distress (heart rate dropped) at every contraction. So whatever works out it really isn't in your hands so try not to stress about it.

AFM I am in the process of getting LO's passport for our trip. I have about 2 weeks left but these weeks are going to be crazy. As for the Ex meeting, it went well I guess but then when he sent the quote he did not send it to me, he sent it to my coworker. I emailed her and said from now on you can be the contact. Well it turns out that he is being a bit of a prick now that he didn't get the contract so I am thrilled that I am now out of the picture. Nothing changes!!! LO is still suffering with a bad cough and nose. It has been a while and many sleepless nights on my part. Baby making is put on hold until August as I also think I have to get myself rested. I am trying to drop some weight quickly but it isn't working yet. I really love my wine and carbs. I was thinking about the "JENNY CRACK" diet as I am getting desperate. Have any of you really seen an overweight Crack addict?? LOL

Hi Ladies!

Just checking in super quick. Have not caught up on all the posts, but wanted to say congratulations to Kierann on the bfp! I'm with the other gals, no worries about these early weeks. I think it's just too soon to affect the babe. Keep us posted!

Kachic - So nice to hear from you. I'm so out of the loop, but it appears your post above is the first one in here in a while, and especially since you had a dd! Congrats to you! She is BEAUTIFUL!

Zohbee - Tick! Tock! My dd was 8 lbs 14 oz, and I delivered vaginally. Had a couple stitches, but it was all good! Can't wait for updates!

Babatte - Busy girl! So praying the FET works for you.

I need to catch up on everyone in here! I hope everyone else is doing well. Things are good here. Baby girl is walking!!
