:hb: hoping you see a strong little heartbeat All!
Sorry you're feeling sick.

Today (it's wednesday here) my oestrogen is still quite low so O nowhere in sight. I was hoping to get some idea today when O would be coming but all I know is I go back on Friday for more bloods. Once O gets close they have me in every day. Wow I am driving myself insane. Gotta go eat a healthy lunch then go for a bike ride.....

Hello ladies:

All: can't wait to have you hear the heartbeat of your baby girl!

annisa: I can imagine how difficult it must be with the anticipation. I always get very nervous around the time AF is supposed to show wondering when she will come so I can start the process. Hang in there. It will happen soon. How long was your previous cycle?

All, how was your ultrasound? Thinking of you, hoping everything was great xo

Adventurer, so where are you up to? I don't catch upon the May/June thread every day, it is just too busy and I can't get through it all. My last cycle was super long, out of the ordinary and probably secondary to the stim. But I was expecting this one to return to my usual 28, 29 days.

AFM, daily blood work now. I expect to know my date for ET by Monday. Super nervous!

Hi girls!

Annisa thanks for the update! Omg!! It's getting close finally! How are you feeling about everything? Can't wait to obsess with you! Will you wait for beta or test? There are pros and cons to both sides lol.. I def tested. I couldn't wait the dreaded 2 week wait. Eeeekkk!!


Adventurer what's the newest with you? How's the cycle going?

Sorry I'm a little off and haven't checked in too much lately. I do try to read the updates from you girls real quick when I can but can't stand to look at my computer screen long enough to write anything without throwing up lol.. Oh the joys! :rofl: Tonight is one of those rare moments that I'm ok. Pheeeewww! But.. I am not complaining!

My U/S was great! I saw and heard the heartbeat. :)
It was def the most amazing thing I've ever seen. And heard!


It is just so incredible to me how strong these little embryos are. Ivf embryos go through so much before they even get to us. They're little fighters from the beginning, it just amazes me. It may sound silly but I have so much respect for my baby already for what she's been through. :hb:

Hello All, yes! My transfer is scheduled for this Friday. I'm excited, sort of calm at this stage. Think I will take 5mg of Valium. Did you take anything?

Omg Annisa!! The time has come! :)

Yes! I took one of the muscle relaxers they gave me 30 minutes before procedure. And then after, just the medrol and whatever else. They say you can take Advil for cramping but I didn't do that. I didn't have cramping either so it was fine.

When I went home that day, just rested all day and idk if it matters, but I was scared of ectopic so I laid on my back most of the time. Lol.. I was scared she would move to the side. I also did the pineapple core. One piece each day for 5 days I think. And started crinone the day after transfer.

The second and 3rd days I made sure to move around the house to keep the blood flowing. Nothing crazy just some cleaning etc. Then pretty much back to normal activity. Like work etc. I still haven't started back to yoga or anything and I'm 8 weeks tomorrow.


So excited for you! This is gonna be an amazing week! FX for you and your beautiful little bean! If you need anything I'm right here.. :babydustb:

Annisa - yay for Friday transfer! (I think I already replied to you in the May/June thread)

Hi ladies,
Thanks for your encouragement!

All, I was just thinking of what you said about having so much respect for your baby already for what she's been through and I know exactly what you mean. We have given our frozen embryo a nickname, well, DH actually nick named him/her. And if I drive by the clinic where he/she is frozen I wonder if he/she is cold and I feel sad! Crazy hey.
:o

Hi Adventurer, hope stimming is treating you well.

Thanks All!
Well I just got home from transfer. The embryo had expanded post thaw which they said is a great sign. Transfer was smooth, I took 5mg Valium which has me in a stress free state at the moment.
Now for the wait.......

Yes yes!!! Expanded is great! That means that little thing is going strong!
Mine was doing the same so that's a great sign!

Did you end up finding out what your having?
My feeling is boy! Idk why.. It's just I felt when I asked. :)


Like Adventurer said.. Congrats on being pupo!!! :yay:

Thanks ladies!

Adventurer, looking forward to your turn!

All, no we did not ask about the sex, DH wants to ask about the sex if this is successful, he did not want to get too attached in case it does not work. And how funny, my feeling is boy also! The nickname DH gave it, is a boy's name. We'll be happy with either of course.

Awwww.. Yes that is completely understandable. And a good idea. It does make it easier to get attached. Kind of gives it more of an identity.


How are you feeling today? I think I already asked you this but will you be testing out trigger or waiting for beta?
