It's that time!! Ladies, please show us your bumps and babies and tell us how you're doing!!! I love these updates!!!
Hi old friends! Not much to update, although baby is kicking like crazy these days. It's adorable. Looking forward to Christmas, last year was a tough one and it makes me appreciate our situation so much more.
My T&P are with all of you IFers this season- it's a tough one, but I have hope for all of you! (((hugs)))
Aww ELF!! LOVE that movie!! :) Well... We go to the RE tomorrow for our (hopefully) last appointment. They're doing an u/s... I haven't updated my siggy, but we had our first u/s on 12/5. We saw a beautiful baby with an amazing heartbeat (126). That's all I expected to see since my betas weren't super high... But nope... There was a Baby B in there! However, baby b was measuring SIX days behind, but with a heartbeat (96). Doc specifically said he did NOT think baby b would "be viable."
I was okay with just seeing one, that's what I expected... But to see that second baby, and SEE THAT HEARTBEAT, I was instantly attached.... It was a rough day.
So we find out tomorrow if we are new members of the vanishing twin club, of if Baby B decided to prove the doc wrong...
And I'm currently sicker than a dog... Zofran quit working. The nausea turned into violently throwing up.... And I want to go to bed... BUT I AM SO SO THANKFUL that I'm going through all of this... I'm always lurking here and wishing you all good luck!!!
Elf!! Love that movie!!!
Well....nothing exciting/new to check in. My feet are really swelling badly.....they look like fat sausages!! (Gross...I know) Some major cramping in the pelvic region everytime I get up from a sitting/laying position. I see my OB today, so hopefully its nothing to be worried about. She is definitely kicking harder and more frequently....mostly on my bladder at this point!
Many T's and P's for all you ladies still here. I lurk often and hope for the best everytime someone has a beta. If I don't get to say it later, I hope everyone has a great Holiday season celebrated with close family and friends!
Hi ladies!! Good luck on your upcoming/current cycles!
Pregnancy related I am doing very well! I had my final u/s last week to check on LO's placenta - it moved up! While I am not completely opposed to c-sections, I would like the chance to have a vaginal delivery. So, this is a relief that we aren't required to have a c-section (though I am very aware anything can happen the day of delivery). Baby is looking great and growing very well. She was measuring around 3lbs5oz last week.
Other than that, I am super sick. I have been sick since last Wednesday and it's the worst. Today was the first day I drug myself into the office and my boss already stopped by and told me to go home and to work from home tomorrow.

Hi ladies! Sending you lots of positive vibes during this holiday season and praying for successful cycles.
I am doing well so far. We had our big anatomy scan on Saturday and got to see LO dancing and jumping around. All looks well with the baby and the tech wrote down the gender for our reveal this Saturday. Our families are coming over and we are doing the balloon box and I cannot wait to see the pink or blue. I've had a feeling it's a boy all along, but we will see for sure in a few days. I am going back for a follow up u/s on the 29th because the tech couldn't see the three vessel cord. The cord is there but she couldn't get a good picture. I'm not complaining about seeing LO again!
Here is a 3D pic of the baby's face:

Everything is going well. I was diagnosed with GD, so have been doing well with my diet & my numbers have all been good! So hopefully no meds for me. I do get to see baby every 3 weeks for a growth ultrasound though (b/c of GD) so I do like to see him more often. Here is the latest pic! I thought it was a really good one.

Hi Ladies! I'm still lurking over here rooting for you all!
I'm 11 weeks now and things have been (thankfully) uneventful! I have the NT scan next Thursday, so I'm hoping that goes well and I'm looking forward to seeing the baby again. I've only gone a couple weeks between u/s at this point and it seems like forever! After that one, I think I go until the a/s in February.
I finally let myself buy some baby stuff this past weekend. I just bought some outfits that were on sale and are gender neutral, but it was exciting! And then I got home and panicked that I bought things too early. But DH has really stepped up in the past couple weeks to calm my anxiety and be supportive. He's also super excited about the baby now! =)
ETA: Also, one of the onesies I bought was a Buddy the Elf one- it says "Raised by Elves", lol.
Hey ladies rooting for you all as usual! Hugs to those that need them this Holiday season! Juicy FX for you girl!
I am doing well and thankful for that. I am just over 11 weeks and went to my 2nd OB/MFM appt yesterday. No u/s but both babies had strong heartbeats on the doppler. I even heard them at home last night with DH since he couldn't be at the appt. My nurse gave me a huge bottle of u/s gel when we asked what kind to get because the doppler came with a tiny tube. Score! Doctor said all looks well. I go back Jan 14th AND 21st. Then every two weeks. Every other appt is growth u/s and the other is cervix check. Oh yeah and still with transvaginal. Ugh. I thought I was done with the dildo cam.
Very grateful to be where we are this Holiday season, it does make things brighter. I just wish DH would keep his mouth shut until the first of the year. I have resorted to blocking our FB walls especially since we are announcing to most of DH's family this Saturday.
Oh and my best friend is lending me her crib so we now have two cribs. Cross them off the list!
Rooting for you ladies always! Hope you all have a great Holiday! Hugs!
I love the seasonal logs! Snow Bunnies & Polar bears are perfect. Good luck to everyone who is on this board and I am sending tons of positive vibes!!!
I cannot believe that I am almost 3rd trimester. It's really nice to see regulars from PAIF board having babies and moving on and I hope my time comes without any issues!
Have a wonderful holiday!!

Hey there ladies! Hope you're all hanging in there. We know how difficult this time of year can be. I'm praying that you all get your BFPs SOON!
I haven't ever checked in here on the Grad page, so quick backstory: I had pretty high beta numbers, saw an ultrasound early with two sacs... few weeks later heard two perfect heartbeats. Then I went to my first OB appointment to find that Baby B hadn't made it. We were sad, but tried to focus on how healthy Baby A is.
I'm a little more than 16 weeks now and feeling pretty good. The first trimester was a mess for me. Vomit, dry heaving, constant nausea, and I was borderline narcoleptic! I kept telling myself that it was temporary and meant my baby was doing well. While I'm thankful that part is behind me, I wouldn't trade it for the world.
We haven't told anyone yet. We'll be seeing family on New Years so we'll be dropping our news then. We took a picture of our "fur-son" with a poster that says "I'm gonna be a big brother". We put that in frames and will be giving them to our parents.
Again, I wish you all the very best. One day you'll be sharing your story here and we can't wait to read it and share your happiness!!
Thanks for updating us ladies! You give us hope!!! <3
Thoughts, prayers, and hugs for everyone here. I'm always rooting for you all.
I am doing really well- finally starting to feel human again at 12w4d. We had our OB appointment yesterday and got to hear baby's heartbeat on the doppler, and had our NT scan today and everything looked great! It's so cool to see it looking like a real little person, and moving around... very reassuring.
We also did announce to our friends/coworkers on Friday at 12w at the work Holiday party. It's weird but great to have so many people know and support us.
I LOVE Elf!!
I am always wishing everyone over here the best! I do a lot of stalking
I am 25 weeks today! I still can't believe it, but it's slowly becoming more real. At my appointment today baby's weight was estimated at 1lb14oz and she sure was throwing around every ounce today! She is a busy girl!
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season and that you all get to make your way over to PAIF very soon!
What a fun picture to start the thread!
I will be 29 weeks on Thursday...holy crap! It's gone by so fast. I feel like I'm getting bigger by the day now (and others notice the difference from Friday to Monday now). I've had BH off and on for a while now, but they're starting to get uncomfortable, at least that's all I can figure it is. My next appointment isn't until the day after Christmas and I do my glucose test that day. I just scheduled my maternity pictures for February and am calling tomorrow for the 3D u/s. It's getting so close and I'm starting to feel the pressure of getting things done soon!
Good luck to those in the 2WW and betas coming up!! Good luck to the Polar Bears beginning their cycles!

Hi ladies! 18 weeks over here and DH and I are slowly starting to let ourselves think about what we should do to get ready for 2 babies. We've had a couple of ultrasounds so far and the babies have been looking good, and seem to be very wiggly. :)
Best of luck to everyone cycling, I think about you ladies often.
Not much new to update you with. I will be graduating from the RE at my next appointment and finally got to stop all my meds this week (woohoo)! At our most recent u/s we got to see baby dancing all over the place, it was crazy!
I really hope that you will all be joining us soon! I miss you all so much...
