Anyone doing IVF in July/August?

Re: Anyone doing IVF in July/August?

  • I know the feeling, getting over the MC hump. I was that way too. Hang in there! I know I gained around 5 lbs from stims, but the thought of having to gain 30 lbs total during pregnancy is making me anxious. It's very difficult for me to gain weight believe it or not. This is a great problem to have typically but not at this moment. I don't have any indigestion.

    It's strange that so far I'm not feeling pregnant? I wonder if this is still all real and going on in there. I haven't felt any movement either. This morning I thought I felt a pitter patter but it could've been gas? I'm also anxiously awaiting the quickening. When is your last RE appointment going to be?

  • @JaeJayStark looks like you're still with the rest of the September Ladies being as sick as can be! Any tips on the NT scan test? I'm getting now nervous for that one.  Congrats on ur prince how exciting!!!  Spotting is very scary I've been having it since the seventh week so I'm hoping that will on it way soon along with the nausea!!!

    @helloworld9   I heard during the NT scan with the other tests that they run u could have them run the test for gender too.


    Pregnancy mentioned and pics
     Had my OB appt today, What a difference a tummy ultrasound is you can barely see my little peanut
    HB 150 today next the big test that I'll be a basket case for
    Technically I'm 11w5days but my overachiever is measuring 12wk3days 
    The clot he called an SCH today which is scary but still small enough he's not concerned today.  I will feel better when it goes away because those are not such great things to have especially throughout the pregnancy.



     The second pic has where the SCH is with the line through it just so you can understand what I'm talking about.

    @Hopeful_mom So the NIPT will tell you the gender, along with other chromosomal screens. It's bloodwork and can be done as early as 10 weeks.

    When it comes to hoping, I think I have plenty in stock in me. I was just planning to check my LH but I also still did a HPT this morning, silly me.

    TW pregnancy
    So far just chugging along and hoping for a healthy baby by the end of it. I had one screening test (AFP) come back positive for downs, which was a scary time. So they drew my blood again for another screening test (NIPT), which came back negative, and they consider that more accurate so I'm in the clear. Not a fun couple of a weeks. But I still can't believe I've reached this stage. It's as if I've been dreaming and working towards it for so long and it's here. The struggle is so hard and I pray every single one of you here will have your baby soon.

  • @BusinessWife so excited for u hope ur still on track for transfer!  And  shingles is not a pregnancy side effect even though you're immune system is lower during pregnancy I'm just one of the lucky ones, hoping it'll be over in another couple of weeks!

    @ReesaAnne16
    im with u on waiting to feel movement!!   I love that you're purchasing things and actually able to enjoy things that's awesome! This all day nausea has been torture I'm hoping as the days progress it will start to get less and less so I'm not able to really look at much online in terms of baby things right now so I still have some time so I'm not too worried about that. 
     Are you going to find out the sex at the 20 week scan? Don't they have the answer after your 12 week tests didn't they do the gender test in that bunch? At least that's what I was told anyway. 
     I did buy a bunch of baby things years ago as well and unfortunately lost them all in the fire so I think I'm just waiting and being cautious. 


    My update pregnancy mentioned

     Today I am 15 weeks yay!!
     I had a Really fast dr appt yesterday .  I don't know if it was because of the shingles and  he wanted to get me out of there or it's just like a fast check to make sure all was OK
    He didn't give me a sono but I did see my nugget and hear the heartbeat!! Best sound! He also said I won't really be able to feel movement till abt wk 20.  
    He also took like 10 vials of blood which I wasn't expecting but he drew my blood and got it on the first try.  I was quite impressed as new ppl take like 3pricks or so to get me.  So far I'm really liking this dr so that's exciting as I was a stress ball over having to find a new OB!!

    Next week I go for my wk 16 tests with the high risk dr. Does anyone remember what these tests are??

    And here's a laugh for the day as he was trying to figure out what he needed to tell me since it's week 14, he must've taken a look at me and thought this girl needs a spa day stat and said I could dye my hair  :smile: :D

     I think the non-invasive testing does check gender, but our insurance only covers that for women over 35. We didn't do the 12 week screenings, it wouldn't change any of our decisions for this baby and we will get all the same information at the 20 week. We are planning to find out the gender and I can't wait! Although we won't be sharing with family; I don't want to get a bunch of pink stuff if it's a girl. 
    Yay! I'm so happy you're at 15 weeks! I hope your nausea starts to go away soon, 15 weeks was about when mine went away.

    I'm old And I'm happy to see my little nugget as much as possible. I feel better going to the high-risk doctor to know that there's another doctor checking things over. I totally hear you on the gender thing, I think for me when OH talks to the baby I  rather him know the gender so he can say things that are appropriate  ;)
     I also think we would need to know the gender earlier because I see picking a name is going to be a battle  :s
     I'm hoping you are correct about the nausea, I'm really hoping it stops soon!!

     Are you having different cravings now?

    I had more cravings in the first trimester, or more accurately, my nausea made everything but a select few foods sound inedible.  Now, all I crave are things I can't have, like sushi, sub sandwiches, and wine! 
    I think choosing a name will be easier once we know the gender too, I don't even want to start the challenge of finding a boy name if we don't have to.
    Its good you're getting extra monitoring with your high risk doctor, I hope things continue to go smoothly. Let us know when you find out what you're having!!
