Hi girls!! I'm so sorry for being MIA! Between work being stressful and feeling like garbage, I think I've just been hiding from everything in my free time. I'm 11 weeks 3 days and today is the best I have felt in a long long time. I'm still waking up several times a night which is getting old but I do feel like maybe the nausea and fatigue are easing up a bit.

PrayingMrs - I totally agree with Sept, try to relax and trust the process as much as you can. And find a really good show to binge watch :)

Sept - good luck tomorrow!! Sounds very positive to me :)

Believe - so sorry your first appt was disappointing. Mine was too actually but mostly just because we had to wait sooo long for the doctor, like almost an hour!! I have my next appt on the 25th too :) hopefully they are better behaved!

An - I am starting to feel a little more comfortable that this pregnancy is going to really happen but I know how you feel about being nervous. When I have a good day with light symptoms my first thought is to wonder if something is wrong. But you're right, odds are in our favor!!

Katie - it's so exciting to start telling people! We are not making any kind of social media announcement but all of our family and close friends know as well as co-workers. Telling work was a relief for me bc I was feeling so crappy! How are you feeling?

Praying- yay!!!! I agree with Sept and find something you want to watch (I was on modified bed rest for 2 days after transfer) how many are you going to transfer?

Sept- that is a great beta!!! Waiting for updates!

Maine- I am so glad you're starting to feel better! I have days were I feel almost normal (except the being tires 24/7) and days were so nauseous I don't want to eat, see or even smell food. Luckily those are becoming less frequent but I'm still on meds for nausea. That being said my Dr discontinued everything else and I feel so free lol. No more PIO shots FABB tabs,or Metfomin for me woo hoo :rofl:

Believe- I am so sorry your first appt was so unorganized by the office!! I finally called my OB to set everything up since they wanted t wait because of my bleed then the nurse on the phone acted like I should have called weeks ago (I did and she told me to wait until now...) oh well I have my nurse appt on Tues, not sure yet about when I'll actually see my OB but she's my GYN too and she delivered my son I really like her so dealing with the office is worth it.

An- How did your scan go? Just think a few more weeks and you'll be in the second trimester!!!! How are you feeling?

AFM- I'm 12 weeks and we actually made it "facebook official" I figured if something happens at this point I'll need all the support I can get... it said DH and I are excited to say our TWINS are on the way! Coming January 2017 (or something along those lines lol my memory has been sucking too) :mrgreen:

Sept- good luck with your second beta today!!!!

PrayingMrs- good luck with transfer!!! My advice is to do something fun afterwards if your doctor doesn't put you on bedrest (mine said to NOT do that) so we went out for a nice lunch and my husband told me funny jokes. No advice on the TWW...I was a nervous wreck so I shouldn't give advice in that area lol

Believe- I'm sorry the doctor messed things up. These are some of the most important appointments of our lives so far and it stinks when we have to wait longer than we expected!

Maine- I'm glad you're feeling better, I bet it's so great to have friends and family know.

Katie- cute announcement! Are you showing yet?

8w4d today and another scan this morning. Not to sound like a broken record, but I'm still bleeding off and on and it's been the most stressful thing. I'm feeling mostly fine otherwise, just bloated, hungry, and I actually randomly got sick just now after I ate a few bites of breakfast but I feel okay. Both babies have been growing consistently but are measuring 1 and 2 days behind, which the docs said they aren't worried about at all. I just wish there was an explanation for the bleeding...I guess my SCH is pretty small 5mm so my doctor didn't think it was that. I'm still afraid of losing one---I know that losing two since they are fraternal would be pretty rare--- but just trying to take things day by day and be thankful my doctor has let me come in for 100 ultrasounds so far :)

Hi Danaa,
Are you sure it was your period that showed up in 4 days? That sounds odd. I feel like after all these drugs anything can happen and when your period comes will be anyone's guess, but hopefully very soon for your sake. Waiting is the worst! I don't think there is anything you can do to make it come though. Good luck xo

Hi Believe!! I like to check in every now and then to see if anyone posted about how they're doing. I'm right there with you I'll be 18 weeks on Sunday and as I'm typing this I'm in the home stretch of a 3 hour glucose test (failed the 1 hour) I should find out what they are thus Tues. Do you know what you're having yet?

Hi Katie!!!!

Great to hear from you! I just did my first glucose test I did the one hour and thank goodness I passed. Sorry you had to do the 3 hour, ugh. We are having a little boy!!! We are both very excited and it became super real today when we heard the heartbeat for the first time. A month ago it was too early and they couldn't hear it via doppler so we did an ultrasound to confirm that all was well. We both teared up when we heard him today! Have you found out what your having??
