Ugh!!!! I’m so sorry!!! I know what she is feeling. Mentally I know she is okay but I jusytknow the feeling. Hugs to her
Thanks for your support ladies
Honestly, because of how my cycle turned into a natural cycle, my RE wasn’t able to perform my transfer. So, another doctor did it. She acted like she couldn’t really see the screen that well and I think she went in blindly. I feel like she wasted my embryo.
The embryologist came in with the embryo and and handed her the embryo to put in the catheter. Usually the embryologist backs up so the doctor can see but something was going on the made the embryologist stay up front and center and then the doctor was struggling to see the screen. Then after a while they were asking me if I was okay. So I was like “ummm yea are y’all okay??” She said yes. And then when she was done she was like “okay done, I couldn’t se’...” then she stopped herself before actually saying she couldn’t see. I felt annoyed at that moment but didn’t want to bring in any bad vibes to myself and jinx anything so I just played cool. But I will never allow her to touch me again.

Ohhh Toni,I understand how you feel ,my second transfer was done by a different doctor so I completely understand .Man some doctors don’t realize that we are the ones who suffer when they mess up,did the embryologist checked the catheter after the transfer?
Maybe the doctor went in too deep?!I don’t know really what to say.

Maybe she did go too deep. And the embryologist did say there was nothing in the catheter. So I think the other doctor was just a little negligent especially since I wasn’t her patient. I forgive her just feel like she wasted my fully hatched embryo. But it doesn’t matter. I’ll just re-start in January. I’ll be checking on you ladies DAILY until you can continue to support me again January. Love you guys

Oooh dana counting down!!

I gained 10kg in total, first trimester was worst with weight i literally could not stop eating i even wokeup at 2am to go down and eat lol, just let your body have what it craves because it craves for a reason, by second trimester it should calm down lol! But i'm finding it 100000 times harder to shift the weight as i'm breastfeeding i think like each ones 4kg lol! But yeh i did it before so hopefully should work its just vvvv slow like 0.5kg a week lol

Ladiesssss I'm scared to look at my vajayjay after birth!! Dh and i have had zeroooo you know what since feb haha i had no drive when pregnant and now I'm kike so much exhausted any time in bedroom is spent with me sleeping lol!! I feel like its gonna look sooo weird after the stitches etc!!!

Yassss Toni!!
Emma with my first pregnancy I was the same,I ate a ton s**t of bad stuff until 8 w and then I lost appetite and nothing tasted right to me so by almost 22 w I only gained a few kilos,in the second trimester I barely gained one bcs I was only eating once a day bcs I had no room for more:)) but now...God help me...I don’t think is healthy gaining too much weight,I promised to myself on Monday I’m getting back on the healthy eating HOPEFULLY:)) I think since I lost my boys I only had sex a few times and who knows when I’m going to have it again:)) as for the vagina thing don’t worry it goes back to normal I heard,my boys were pretty small and still I felt like I suffered a bit of transformation down there but now I’m back to my old self.
How many stitches did you had?did it hurt?Im absolutely dreading thinking about the natural delivery....

Man 8 stitches!!!That sounds painful!!This why I’m so afraid of giving birth naturally,I would rather have the csection and be done that and the fact that they stick their hands up up ur vagina to check how ur progressing :(( for me bcs i was induced to deliver my boys it was horrible bcs I had some meds shoved up in my vagina every 3-4h girl it was hell and it was embarrassing and uncomfortable :( I got an epi when the pain started being bad but not horrible,I could’ve gone a bit longer without but at the end when it was time to deliver the last placenta and the epi wore off God!!!!That was the most painful experience in my life,I just wanted to die and be done with,luckily it was only about 10mins before they gave me something more strong than before so I can be cleaned and everything,I haven’t felt anything:))and after that a few hours later I was walking and peeing normally and I felt like s**t for feeling so “normal” I guess that is the reason everyone wants a vaginal delivery,the recovery is easy.

Besides the excessive hunger i have a bit of fatigue and spotting from time to time but that is it.
I’m incredibly lucky to have it so easy I guess.
