Jessica, I just realized you're having a BOY!!!

Did you decide if you will get your follow ups? I understand what you are saying about stressing. The thing with me, is with my m/c's...I had no idea anything was wrong. My body holds onto it, protecting it, I had no bleeding, no cramping, nothing. We even saw the heartbeat 2 weeks before one of them....So going in at 9w thinking everything was perfect is stressful for me, so I'm glad for monitoring, but I do understand your side too! everything crossed for you!!

Jill...praying you are wrong and it's just one tapering off, but praying the other one or two is hanging on tight ((HUGS))

Thinking of you Jill...

And I agree with leah, Jessica. My body also will hold on most times as long as my beta is above 10 even if the pgy is not ok. But I respect any decision you make on it

The beta says no baby. I am sad but also relieved that the waiting is over for this time around. It looks like we are being recommended for what is called a patch protocol. Has anyone tried that? It apparently goes for more than a month.........sounds like not fun at all - but babies are worth every second of torment. If we decide to go this route, it would begin in mid-January to have all of the hard core monitoring happen mid-february during my husbands teaching break, in case I have migraines again and can't drive. I just drank a beer

Jill--I'm so sorry. I hope the next protocol (sorry don't know anything about it) is the one that works for you!

Today I finally had my ultrasound!! 1 baby nestled in!! (We only transferred 1). Baby is measuring 7 wk 1 day (we are 7 wk 4 days). Heart rate was strong at 145. Sounded beautiful! We are finally letting it set and and are so excited. We told DD tonight and she is surprised and super excited.

I wanted to thank you all for all of the support. I love being able to come on here and talk with people who really know what I'm going through. I wish all of you the best and loads of sticky dust! I will continue to stalk TTCMA to see all of your successes! Maybe I'll join the July DDC (not sure I fit in with them, I think we need a TTCMA DDC). Hugs and happy holidays to all of you!

Jill ((HUGS))...I'm sorry - I'm going to be on an estrogen priming protocol this next time, maybe that is what they mean? There are patch estrogen's like Lucy said...I think I'll just be taking oral estrace pills though.... GOOD LUCK ((HUGS))

Congrats Katie, that's awesome

Lindsey, is your U/S today?

Leah, We have learned that it is an estrogen priming protocol using an estrogen patch. It takes a little bit longer than the other protocol that we were using. I think we will start mid-January in an effort to coordinate the monitoring week & procedures with my husband's teaching break. Are you starting your next cycle right away or taking a break?

Hi girls... Just popping in to say hi. I know it's been a while. My mom passed away on Nov 9, so I cancelled my cycle and life hasn't been the same. I'll be back on to catch up with you all soon and might try again in Jan. Miss talking with all of you!!
