    Appointment next Monday, maybe anatomy scan? MFM the following week.
    Massively improved on the HG- weaning down zofran pump and gaining weight. (My start weight was a little skewed I think, I gained a good 10lb every treatment cycle, plus depression). Mostly still taking it easy, I get tired very quickly.
    QOTW: alright, so I can't come up with an actress either. Though my SO would be Eric Dane (apparently from greys anatomy, but I didn't watch that.) I am watching him in The Last Ship and I adore a man in uniform. DH has similar salt/pepper hair and cut.

  • @designer303 did you have PTL before and that's what puts you at risk? Or incompetent cervix? I'm sorry if you have said before, I couldn't remember the history. I'm glad you are reassured feeling the LO move :)

  • @kelley421 yes I had PTL at 30 weeks with our son, and the SCH still being as large as it is has increased my risk on top of what it already was, until last week I was just worried, but having started with contractions already my brain is swirling. 

    TTC#1 May 2009- July 2010 on our own with no luck

    Started with RE in August 2010, dx with unexplained IF and then finally our 3rd IUI cycle using Follistim and Trigger resulted in our wonderful little man.  Born 12/2/11

    TTC#2 Never really prevented, but were careful early on as Dr. reccomended

    Surprise BFP 12/16/13, started progesterone immediately as first numbers came back low, but betas were good.  Progesterone wasnt enough. Natural MC 12/24/13.

    Back with RE as of January 2014...

    5/27/14- Chemical Pregnancy :(

    April 2015 IVF#1
