@Tulips29 No, they are not... I haven't gotten any for about a week, so it's almost a little weird for me. I've been doing kicks and squats after my shot to help get things moving which seems to help.
I'm so glad you got to see the heartbeat! That's wonderful wonderful goodness! I love the idea of your Father's Day announcement too.
@dragonfaerie Sorry you had a rough night. Definitely take off early if you can!
@Tulips29 Woohoo!! So happy you got to see the heartbeat!! I know that I am going to cry no matter what so I didn't wear mascara today.
Clock is ticking slowly by....

Been lurking and am now confidently joining this thread...it's so good to see so many familiars and super happy for everyone.
-What road did you take to get your BFP (ie IUI, IVF, etc)? after failed attempts of everything else- IVF w/ FET on May 9. Transferred 2; first ultrasound yesterday SAW 1 strong heartbeat at 135 bpm at 6 weeks + 5 days. U/S tech says they'll add doppler for sound around week 10.
-When is your due date? January 24, 2017
-Anything else you want to share? 1st: This incredible journey was made easier with the support of everyone here. No one else knows the pain, joy, relief, etc this sisterhood actually goes through. Thank you gals.
Although we transferred 2, and were prepared to have twins, I'm over the moon with my 1 Baby Sumo. (DH and I are neither sumo wrestlers nor Japanese, "Sumo" is just our term of love). I struggled with the decision to transfer 1 or 2, since we only had 2 embryos, and decided on 2 because I would rather have twins than pulling myself out of the gutter if the first or second transfer didn't take. And now I know, one of them would probably have been unsuccessful. I had bright red blood droplets a couple of times, which MAY have been Baby 2; RE says in any case, a trip to
My RE is keeping me until week 12 and will begin to ween me off meds around week 10 and will be seeing me every 2 weeks until then.
Symptoms have been at bay so far. Fatigue really hits me around 4 or 5, occasionally with a rocking headache. I don't call it nausea as much as general discomfort/disgust at times. Cravings....are hitting DH like crazy! I'm going to have to tell him if he puts on more weight than me, I'm going to trade him in for a younger, lighter model. So far, no weight gain - but I sure as hell can't suck in my gut anymore.
I'll spare everyone with just this for now...
The babe is measuring right on with a heartbeat of 133!! Whew! I am sure I will cry tears of joy later but for now I am in shock!
