Hi everyone! I hope I can join your community. I'm looking for some support and camaraderie in beginning this journey. The basics are in my sig, but we were lucky enough to have a BFP from our first IVF with a good second beta. I am (cautiously) excited but also very very scared as it's so early. For some reason my RE doesn't do the first ultrasound until 7 wks (seems a long time to me!) and I will be on the east coast that week so first ultrasound is not until 8 weeks! I'm scared that things won't be going well. DH is more scared that both embryos split and there will be quads. Also wondering if anyone has had this symptom: severe gas bloating - especially in the morning (sorry if TMI). I have really bad gas pains that will eventually go away if I can manage to burp or ... (sorry if TMI). My REs office said GasX is OK and that's been a little helpful. Between the bloat from ER and the gas bloat I look way more pregnant than I am but that's OK.
Looking forward to getting to know you!
