Re: PAIF Check-In 6.2

  • I did notice some other members who may not have been undergoing fertility treatments, but may wish to be tagged officially?  I'm not sure.  @photographerwife ?  I was thinking of you in particular, because I wasn't sure if it sounded like you had any other factors that might make you particularly high risk, per se?  I believe the PGAL Check-in is slotted for Thursdays as well. <3
  • <b>How far along/weeks?</b>  4w 0d

    <b>Diagnosis (if you wish to share):</b> Azoospermia

    <b>How are you feeling this week? </b>Mostly hopeful, excited; even more tired and bloated; just a little bit anxious for my next couple appointments...

    <b>Rants/Raves? Questions? </b>Am I the only one who wants to start browsing pregnancy announcements???  I realize I am ridiculous.  I was hoping to be able to tell SIL in a cute way, just privately, before telling the rest of the family farther down the road, but she won't be coming over to help me with the girls again for a little while, so.... If I get a part in this show I may have to tell the director / coaches on a NTK basis, and I might like to tell BGs godmother on the sooner side, but other than that, I'm wondering how far I can get before people start to guess... My weight since treatment started back up again has shot right up, so whatever few lbs I had started to lose are right there again.  I'm in that awkward territory where I'm chubby enough, most people wouldn't dare ask - they'd just assume that I'm fat. :(

    <b>Upcoming appointments?</b> Second beta is tomorrow (Thursday 6/3) and First scan will probably be next Friday, 6/11.

    <span><b>GTKY:  </b>What is the one chore that is not actually that hard, but you never seem to want to do?  Ugh, emptying the dishwasher.  I de-cluttered our cabinets a while back and that helped make it easier so I didn't feel like I'd be wrestling with all the other dishes / containers while putting the clean ones away.  So IDK why it's just something I keep putting off, even though once it's empty, too, can clear off all the extra clutter from the counters and it looks so nice!  ha.  DH says it's the easiest thing in the world to do, and I'm all... so why don't you go ahead and take ownership of that one!??  lol  Ha.</span>

  • How far along/weeks? 5 weeks

    Diagnosis (if you wish to share): Male factor
    How are you feeling this week? Even more tired, a little queasy.

    Rants/Raves? Questions? Not really

    Upcoming appointments? Beta tomorrow- since my first beta was low (had 2 more since that have progressed nicely) the dr. Is ok with me getting another beta for reassure which is nice. My ultrasound is 6/15.

    GTKY:  What is the one chore that is not actually that hard, but you never seem to want to do? Dusting lol I think I just get annoyed because it's dusty again 5 min later.

    @BusinessWife I am hesitant to do too much planning yet, andI was the same way with my son. But you bringing up announcements is making me want to look too!

  • @axl0060 Oh my gosh, yes!  Dusting is the worst!  Why am I going to bother if it looks horrible again the next day!?  Lol  I live in a super old house, too, so it's just ridic.  GL with your beta tomorrow!  I'm so glad to hear the subsequent tests have been progressing normally. :)
  • @BusinessWife hey! Yeah I’ll join in over here! Although this is a spontaneous pregnancy, we have been trying to get pregnant for 2 years, and we’re actually starting IUI this cycle. I have DOR, my amh came back at .24, and one Fallopian tube, and possibly endo too. 🙃 I hear you on the announcements! I haven’t really considered telling anyone yet, mainly because I’m terrified. But I’m hoping after our placement scan I can at least tell my best friends, mom, and in-laws! So I’ll have to find something cute. I’m kind of at that slim thick point too 😂 so I’ve got just enough fluff to hide a bump for a few weeks at least! Good luck with your beta tomorrow! 

    @ax10060 good luck with your next beta! I hope the time between now and your scan pass quickly! 

    How far along/weeks? 4w6d

    Diagnosis (if you wish to share):one Fallopian tube, DOR. 

    How are you feeling this week? nervous. Although my betas have trended really well, since my history of ectopic pregnancy, the cramps have had me so on edge. But I’m so grateful to be here! Just hoping everything continues to go well. 

    Rants/Raves? Questions? I got this Smarty pants gummy prenatal that is so highly recommended and the tangerine taste kills me everytime! 🤢

    Upcoming appointments? I had my 3rd beta yesterday, and will go in for a placement scan sometime next week!

    laundry! I’m sitting here on the bump ignoring the two loads waiting to be folded on the couch. 😅

  • Second Beta came back...

    <div class="Spoiler">195!!!  We are PREGNANT!!!

    They only needed to see a 66% increase from 53.3, so this is amazing.  I am dumbstruck.
  • @BusinessWife Wonderful news!! 

    I also have good news, the additional beta check showed great progress! Doubling rate is about 28 hours which is very reassuring! My first was only 28 so I was concerned, but a week later its 2490 :smile:

  • Yay!!!  @axl0060  That's wonderful!!!  Congratulations!  So nice to hear things are coming along well. :)
  • Ughh my meds came in today, that I need to start tomorrow, and I'm so tired, I don't even want to open the box... 😭😭😭
