I can't wait to hear about the gender. do you find out during the fourth month? sending you lots of hugs! XO

Hi Ladies! Sorry it has been so long. Here is my update: The evil morning sickness has come to see me and it has been awful, I have felt sick more of the day than not for the past 3 days and I seriously almost got sick in the bath tub with I was in it (Gross!!) So glad I made it out of that thing. Anyway I did ask my nurse which side the placenta/yolk sac was on and I am centered !! Looks like I won't be able to tell if that theory was right or not :/

How have you ladies been? Any updates???

April i feel your pain with the weight. Between the hormones and the emotions I also have gained weight. Everyone says take it easy during the wait and no exercise. Makes me feel even more fat! Lisa, I'm sorry to hear about the morning sickness! Wish I had some great ideas to help with that.

Hi. This is my first time trying IVF as well. I am very nervous. We already completed the retreival (4/16) and transfer (4/20). I am very nervous waiting for the first pregnancy test. Any thoughts or ideas on how I can chill out?! I dont want to start stressing.

Try to find something to do, don't think so much about the days, let the time fly (take it easy) then your body and little "guy" also takes it easy!

Kristi-Cant wait for you to hear the heartbeat tomorrow!! It is amazing We do ultrasounds every week at my clinic until they release us and today the heartbeat was 156 (it started off at like 112 a few weeks ago) I love watching our baby grow. Honestly think I will go crazy when they release me and I only go once a month and only have 2 sonograms EKKK.

MissB-I am so excited for you!!! Rest as much as possible and keep those feet warm I can't wait to hear about your BFP!! Are you going to POAS? I didn't and I know lots of girls do but I was too afraid!


Angie- I read a new book series (well not a new one but new to me). Reading always makes time go by fast, if you enjoy it. If not I would hit up Netflix or Hulu and start with a new TV series Try not to do anything strenuous. My RE say that the embryo couldn't "fall out", but to rest and take it easy! Drink lots of water and keep your feet warm. Sticky Vibes and Baby Dust.


Liyana- I am so sorry to read that your frosties didn't make the thawing process. Did they say what may have been the cause? I hope the time between now and June flies by for you!!


April- I need an update lady! How are things going? Any answers on fragmentation test? I read about that awful Dr. that you went to that would not sign your release... I have a few choice words for him that I would not ever put on this forum, but if you tell me his name I will try and send him a really nasty email!!! He actually sounds like the male Dr. that works in my office (we don't speak to each other, I would cuss him and get fired LOL).

Lisa!!! hi Honey . i'm so happy to hear the baby is growing right on track & the heartbeat is strong! i'm soooo excited for you. when will you get released to the ob? I can't wait to hear if you're having a girl or a boy! i'm sending pink thoughts your way!

as for that Dr, he sucks! my physical is due 5/8. the very soonest I can get in to another dr is 5/14. they still haven't told me what will happen if I don't get it in on time.

DH fragmentation test came back normal (God is sooooo good!). so we froze 1 sample, he goes in 2 weeks to freeze another. I don't understand how sperm works, but i'm hoping this frozen sperm will help us to create great embryos. the goal is to get preggers & have some frosties too.

I am sooo happy you checked in. it totally made my day! sending out huge HUGS!

Angie- how are you doing after ET? did you transfer 2 or 1? when will your 1st beta be? sorry for all the questions. I hope you're feeling great

hugs hugs hugs to all

April- I am thrilled that the fragmentation test came back normal!!! I should be getting released to the regular OB in the next few weeks. My clinic doesn't work on a your in this months cycle or that month cycle it is when you are ready and your body is ready we are ready for you I really love that about them. Surely yours wouldn't kick you out as long as you had it in before you start your cycle. I am so ready to find out what we are having, me and DH have started saying it's a girl and she if we are wrong oh well the baby will never know LOL!! Once I remember how to post pics on here I will post a sonogram pic for you!! It is crazy how fast they grow, I can't wait for you to be preggers with me

Hi April. No problem with the questions. It is so great to converse with people who understand. I am doing ok after the ET. We transferred two. My first Beta is 4/28. What part of the cycle are you in? I hope all is going well with you!!!

Lisa- it sounds like your clinic is amaze! mine is good, but this physical that they thew at us last minute is really stressing me out. I'm feeling up & down going into the cycle. Im less excited then I was before. I think the fear is really taking over.I'm going to start calling your baby a girl too . I remember your sister had a crib for you. did you set up your nursery or are you waiting for the gender reveal? Do you have any favorites names? I've asked DH, he doesn't like any names! it's so frustrating.
sending pink vibes your way xo!


MissB- you're doing so good holding out! I feel bad for asking, but when's the official beta again? sending you sticky vibes!!!


Angie-your beta is only a few days away! I'm in the BFP stage still. our ER is sooo far away! it's around 5/30. im sending stcky vibes you way too!


Kristi- congrats again woohoo!

April- I know you are upset about the last min. physical and I would be too especially since you have already gone through so much with them. It is not like it is your first cycle or you are a new patient. I really think this is going to be your cycle though so try and keep positive! I know it is hard but I really really believe it is going to turn out great for you this time!! My brother and his wife and daughter are actually moving in with me this weekend LOL. He has been her for a few weeks but the wife and daughter are coming in tomorrow, so my room that is going to be my nursery currently has bunk beds in it that are being moved into their daughters room and then I will set up the nursery. They will probably be with me up until after the baby is born ....we will see. Good thing I Love them and they don't drive me crazy!! As for names we have only agreed on a girl name Adalynn. We liked Jameson for a boy but don't want everyone calling him James so we nixed it. Names are hard so I am not worrying about it again until I know what we are having. Sending patience and Baby Dust your way

Lisa! thank you sooooo much for your encouragement. I really needed it! it felt like a long distance hug when I was reading it . thank you again! they pushed my start date back 4 days. I was so bummed, DH was surprised I was errked by that. i'm just too impatient. I know 4 days wont kill me, but I just want to be there already .

you are an angel! I think it's amazing you're letting your brother & his fam move in with you. I only have 1 sister. she came down for my birthday, which was sooo awesome! but to be perfectly honest, after 3 days I was ready for her to go back home. seriously! you're an angel!!!

I LOVE both of those names. if we had b/g twins DH liked Jameson & Ginger, we thought it was cute. but since it is a cocktail, we were thinking people would think we're alcoholics. I hope Adalynn will confirm her girliness soon! I can't wait to hear the good news. if we have a boy I am leaning towards the name Peter. Im partial because it's my daddy's name & my grandmother picked it out. she's no longer with us, I miss her sooo much! I feel like it would honor both of them. i also like that the name Peter is not super popular. still sending pink vibes your way!

Angie- thank you so much for the positive thoughts! i need everything i can get . i hope you share your good news with us on Monday! almost there
