  • Hi PA! 

    Not much is new with me.  I am going for my u/s tomorrow to confirm my m/c.  It feels so weird because I was away when it all happened and this morning my RE's office called to confirm my appointment and I realized that I may not have even told them...I know I should have gone for a beta this morning so we can make sure it's on its way down, but I'll just do it tomorrow.  What's one more day.

    My Mom hasn't said happy birthday to me yet.  It was two days ago.  My MIL is watching my dog for us until we go pick him up on the weekend.  We told her about the mc and she has offered to keep him for as long as we need...because it might help us if I have one less thing on my plate.  Ya MIL, my mc was caused by having a dog.  Right.  She called me three times to tell me she doesn't think he misses me.  I'm sure it was meant to make me feel better, but it actually just pissed me off.  I wish I could go get him right now, but it's a 3 hour drive.

    ((Hugs)) to everyone!!!

    BeeBee - I'm sorry your Mom is being so insensitive. For what it's worth, Happy Belated B-day. *hugs*

    AFM: I had my liver ultrasound yesterday. Just patiently waiting the results. I hope it's nothing to worry about. I'm also still waiting around for my RE's legal team to approve our contract. We were moving along so quickly, but have been stuck on this step for over two weeks now. It's frustrating. My RE says to reach out to her tomorrow if I still haven't heard anything back. I know she wants this to move along too. And in good news, she wants me to start BCPs with my next period (which should be next week) to start prepping for my next cycle. I think I'll finally be excited once our embryos are actually on their way. I'm kind of in a funk right now with the stupid liver stuff and the lack of movement on the legal things...I hate waiting around and doing nothing.

    I hope everyone is having a good week.

  • My transfer went well on Monday.  I know I should be hopeful since this is the first time that we actually put back good quality blasts - but after doing this so many times already its just so hard to believe this might actually work.  My butt is killing me from the PIO - I've always been on 1cc and this RE has me ton 2ccs - and it definitely makes a difference in the soreness. So now there is really nothing I can do but wait.....

    ...................................................Snail

    I'm rockin' a snail trail in my undies today.

    I've got a vag wanding and blood appt this Friday. I hope everything looks good. If the trail is any indication, things should be cookin'!

    Getting ready for next Wed (we fly out to CO) for our transfer Fri. 

    Like Hootie, feeling all kinds of hope about our chances with this transfer, but being really guarded because I believed it would be different so many times. I feel I've got to give this embryo my all, but I don't want to be disappointed.

    Beta 9dp5dt = 181, 11dp5dt = 427. 1st u/s showed a healthy heartbeat! EDD 2/16/14

    After 4 years of hoping and heartbreak, our sweet little bean was born on 2/19/14
    We are so in love with her.

    Everybody is welcome!!!
  • Hey ladies!  I am prepping for FET #2. Last time, I was delayed week after week due to my thin lining.  This time, we did the endometrial scratch and we added estrace vaginally inserted.  Hopefully, those will do the trick.

    I sent a letter in the mail the CEO of Southwest a week ago about my mother's day flight.  I am still waiting to hear back.  We'll see what happens.  Thanks again for everyone's support.

    Happy Birthday BeeBee!!

    Hello Ladies! 

    I hope everyone is doing well. I just got back yesterday from a long weekend in NYC. It was so nice to get away from everything and anything IF related. Now it's back to reality. I have my phone consult tonight with Dr. Surrey from CCRM. I am anxious and excited to hear what he has to say. I just hope I haven't forgotten anything on my novel of a list of topics/questions. I have another 2nd opinion next week, so I am happy to finally be getting to this point, since it takes forever to get in with these doctors. It has been nice being on a break, but I am ready to get back in the game with next steps. 

    GL and hugs to all!!!

    Big hugs sweetie. And Happy Belated Birthday. I am sure your MIL was just trying to take things off your plate (although she could have been better at it) and your furbaby misses you very much. I think your MIl is just so in love with your pooch that she wants to keep him for as long as possible!

    My transfer went well on Monday.  I know I should be hopeful since this is the first time that we actually put back good quality blasts - but after doing this so many times already its just so hard to believe this might actually work.  My butt is killing me from the PIO - I've always been on 1cc and this RE has me ton 2ccs - and it definitely makes a difference in the soreness. So now there is really nothing I can do but wait.....

    Sorry about the sore butt - yes it does make a big difference! keeping only positive thoughts for you!

    pretty overwhelmed at work this week and AF is not showing (making me wait even longer for the additional testing).

    on the up side, a colleague approached me about designing a study abroad course to singapore for summer 2015!

     

    Ok - so we need to send you some AF vibes! when we don't want the beeeotch to show, she does, when we need her - she disappears!

    Cool about the course! That sounds exciting!

    ...................................................Snail

    I'm rockin' a snail trail in my undies today.

    I've got a vag wanding and blood appt this Friday. I hope everything looks good. If the trail is any indication, things should be cookin'!

    Getting ready for next Wed (we fly out to CO) for our transfer Fri. 

    Like Hootie, feeling all kinds of hope about our chances with this transfer, but being really guarded because I believed it would be different so many times. I feel I've got to give this embryo my all, but I don't want to be disappointed.

    Keeping you in my prayers and for everything positive for you!

    Hey ladies!  I am prepping for FET #2. Last time, I was delayed week after week due to my thin lining.  This time, we did the endometrial scratch and we added estrace vaginally inserted.  Hopefully, those will do the trick.

    I sent a letter in the mail the CEO of Southwest a week ago about my mother's day flight.  I am still waiting to hear back.  We'll see what happens.  Thanks again for everyone's support.

    Happy Birthday BeeBee!!

    Good luck with the FET! we will all be here cheering you on!

    I'm down to one baby woodchuck.  The animal rehabber looked them over the weekend and didn't give a good prognosis.  At least I tried.  Other than that, DH and I have planned to run away for a week in June.  Just a little road trip, probably to the upper peninsula and Mackinaw Island.

     

    ((HUGS)) all around! 

    Sorry about the baby woodchuck - maybe he will surprise you. enjoy your getaway! DH and I love road trips - that is why New Hampshire is so great for us. Great roads and only about 5 or so hours from NJ. have fun.

    Hello Ladies! 

    I hope everyone is doing well. I just got back yesterday from a long weekend in NYC. It was so nice to get away from everything and anything IF related. Now it's back to reality. I have my phone consult tonight with Dr. Surrey from CCRM. I am anxious and excited to hear what he has to say. I just hope I haven't forgotten anything on my novel of a list of topics/questions. I have another 2nd opinion next week, so I am happy to finally be getting to this point, since it takes forever to get in with these doctors. It has been nice being on a break, but I am ready to get back in the game with next steps. 

    GL and hugs to all!!! 

    I have to think that visiting NYC for out of towners is fun but because I work in midtown NYC - I just can't see it. I can't wait to go home and get out of NYC ... lol Hope you had fun. Good luck with the consult.

  • NIFR - We have a resident?s association where I live and quite frankly, over the last year a lot of crazies have moved into the area.  I made the big mistake of challenging the overwhelming majority of dumb people at the last meeting and now there is a lynch mob after me... I sooo don?t need this garbage!  


    I saw my local RE yesterday and he is ordering more extensive immune testing for me.  He is also going to do an endometrial biopsy and an MRI to get a closer look at my adenomyosis.  Honestly though, I feel like I am loosing strength for this process.  The last week or so has been the first time that I actually started to believe that a baby just might not be in the cards for us no matter how hard I try.
