  • Hey ladies!!! Another week down! <3

    How far along are you? / EDD
    10 weeks, 1 day

    Any recent/upcoming appointments?
    Not until March 6th, my first appt with my actual OB!!

    How are you feeling?
    These last few days have been especially rough. Morning sickness is in full swing, I was nauseous all day long yesterday and all day so far today. I also have a sinus infection and just started antibiotics which also could be part of what is contributing to the nausea/crumminess!

    QOTW: Have you started thinking about/decided on names?
    We had a girls name picked out last time that we still both like- Chloe.. we have a few boys names we like but haven't finalized them yet and working on middle names too! DS is Carter Bennett. :)

    Me: 28, DH: 30 Married July 2014  DX: Severe MFI- 3 failed IUI's, IVF #1 Egg retrieval June 4th 2016, 5 day transfer- BFP Baby Boy! EDD 2/25/2017. Our sweet miracle Carter Bennett arrived 2/12/2017 6 lbs, 2 oz 19 inches. <3 Surprise BFP!!! Baby Girl due 10/1/2018.

  • @sarcasticowl Oh my gosh almost second tri! So happy for you! 

    @dragonfly6191 Can you take diclegis/unisom if you're too nervous about reglan? I think I would be hospitalized without it and I've heard twins morning sickness is even worse.

    @businesswife Can you share the names with us??? :) 

    How far along are you? / EDD 11 weeks

    Any recent/upcoming appointments? Our first OB appointment is this Friday. I also have another set of bloodwork at the RE this week -- my placenta still hasn't fully taken over so I'm still on estrogen and progesterone. I REALLY want to get off the progesterone so fingers crossed my bloodwork looks better this week!

    How are you feeling? Horrifically sick, still, unfortunately...

    QOTW: Have you started thinking about/decided on names? My husband is ready to start talking names but I'm too scared :(

  • @lablover78. Yes, getting there!  FWIW, at 12 weeks, I definitely have a noticeable bump, not sure it looks like I'm actually pregnant or just carrying a lasagne baby.  But I gained 10 lbs basically immediately following the bfp, (not to mention the rapid ivf weight gain prior, too).  I'm personally just trying to maintain that 10+ as far into 2nd tri as possible.  I'm sure you're doing just fine! ❤

  • @adirat I'm sorry you're still feeling so sick.  :/  You said the placenta hadn't quite taken over yet?  How did they determine that?  I'm  curious...

    As for names, we will probably try to keep that off the internet as much as possible but you just may get a PM, if you're interested... ;)

    @BusinessWife Is that not the best feeling in the world? Truly a blessing; feels like a lottery win!

    Did you find out the sex or are you waiting?

  • @BusinessWife Yay that's wonderful! Def PM me :)

    I'm not sure how they determine when the placenta takes over other than that they look at my hormone bloodwork. I had a medicated FET so 100% of my progesterone is medication, so I assume they can see the trajectory of the progesterone blood levels over time and determine when supplementation is no longer needed?

  • @lablover78 Wow, I hadn't heard that before about heparin. Fingers crossed it doesn't affect you. Would it be too late for a cvs vs. an amnio? A cvs can be done earlier which is nice plus it can be done vaginally.

  • @adirat I have no idea but thank you for the suggestion. I’ll look into it.

  • @lablover78 I had a CVS with my first pregnancy and I'm only a PM away if you have questions. (My loss was not caused by the CVS if anyone is worried)

  • How far along are you? / EDD
    9 weeks 2 days/due Sept 30

    Any recent/upcoming appointments?
    My next one isn't until March 20th.

    How are you feeling?
    Exhausted. It's getting hard to wake up in the morning for work everyday. I also have a legit little round bump at this point so that's been fun to hide.

    QOTW: Have you started thinking about/decided on names?
    We will wait until we find out the gender at 19 weeks. With our first we didn't have a name till around 35 weeks.

    I had an amnio at 20 weeks last pregnancy as my blood work came back 1 in 2 for down syndrome. It shouldn't be too late to get an amnio and I believe that has less risk than a CVS?

  • @PNW12RN  Hi and welcome back! I remember you from when I was on here during IVF/ pregnancy with my son! Fun to see some familiar faces again.

    @businesswife That's so exciting you are Team Green! It would be so fun to have such an awesome surprise but I could never do it. I am too much of a planner :/.

    @marimarii The amnio and cvs risks are equal. For both a lot depends on the skill of the doctor. The benefit to cvs is that it is earlier, so you can get answers sooner and god forbid something is wrong it's easier on your body earlier on or schedule a specialist. A cvs can also be done vaginally.

    Edit to clarify risks

  • @chicandbubbly I remember you from the PAIF boards last year!  We are sort of mirror images: my first was a miracle natural surprise pregnancy and my second is a FET success.  My girls will be 18 months apart.  Nice to see a familiar face over here on the success side of infertility!
    Me: Age 40  Husband: Age 41
    Chemo killed my ovaries (along with a BRCA1 mutation, which causes DOR)
    4/30/13 ER just prior to chemo: 8 embryos frozen at 2pn. 2 survived to blasts/1 PGS normal

    4/16 ER cancelled on CD7: 1 follicle on L/ 0 follicles on R
    FET #1  7/13/16  BFN

    Super shocker +HPT 9/19
    Baby Alyce arrived 5/8/17

    Went forward with donor eggs from my sister for baby #2
    ER 4/24, 5 eggs fertilized/1 survived to blast and was chromosomally normal.

    FET 2/15 (my sister/donor's birthday!).  Beta 10dp5dt:172; beta 12dp5dt: 425

  • Hi ladies!! New here off of the IF board but see some familiar faces!

    how far along: 9w5d due date 9/30!

    appts: has my first midwife appt today (released from IF doc last week but will be on both estrace and PIO until last day of 1st trimester) anywho, anyone else feel like the first Ob appt is underwhelming? No Doppler or US bc I just had one last week with my IF doc. Basically just lab work and return in 4 weeks at which point they can do the counsyl or Nuchal test if we want. 

    I was was hoping to do the early screen today so we could find the sex out (I’m so impatient lol) so my DH and I found the sneak peek gender test online and sent that off yesterday. Anybody had luck with that? Supposedly it’s 99% accurate. Couldn’t pass it up for $140 for the speedy one. That’s cheaper than the one at my OB will be. 

    Feeling good! Not had any nause or vomiting thank goodness!!

    Still working on names!
    Me 30 DH: 31 Married for 7 years
    Dx: MFI
    TTC since 2016
    August 2017: IVF #1 (11 eggs retrieved, 8 mature, 3 fertilized with ICIS, 2 Frozen)
    FET #1:  October 11th -- Beta only 12. CP 
    FET #2: January 12th -- BFP!

  • @tnh0413 congrats! And lucky on the no naseua! I had my first midwife appt today, too, but they did an u/s which was nice :) definitely older equipment than my RE, though! 

    @PNW12RN congrats! 

    @BusinessWife congrats on the test results! I bet that’s really comforting news. We’ll be in the same boat with trying to be team green but having results already. Self-control test, here we go! 

    @adirat I hope your placenta takes over soon - and that you start feeling better! 

    AFM: 
    9+1 today, EDD 10/3

    apointments: first midwife appointment today, so I guess I’ve graduated from my RE? I’m on progesterone through the end of this week, so I’m feeling kind of in limbo. Got to see (and hear!) the heartbeat, and see the little gummy bear swim around like crazy. Awww. 

    Feeling pretty good, aside from naseua. As long as I eat, it goes away, but convincing myself to eat in the morning can be rough. 

    We’ve had a girl name picked out for a long while, but boy names are still up for debate.

  • Thank you, @Hopeful_mom! This whole thing still feels too good to be true sometimes.  I am really really excited to tell my sister (and the rest of my family) and start celebrating this pregnancy.  It's still so early, though, so I'm trying to hold back the excitement a bit. So many things can go wrong.  Once we get to that first US I'll feel better.  2 more weeks!
