  • But did you get drunk as well? Everyone knows you just have to relax, drink and take a vacation right? This is just a board for those of us that haven't got the right combination of tequila and sex.
    2 IVFs & 1 FET. Welcome home baby girl!
  • Those people are stupid.  Sloane99 has it right:  You have to get drunk, go on vacation and then you get KU.  Maybe add in a beach?

    I'm sorry.

    I hate it when people say "Take a Vaca", "Stop trying so hard", "As soon as you stop trying you'll get pregnant" . . . oh the list of bad advise goes on and on!

    Baby Girl # 2
    TTC Since June 2013
    Got pregnant on our own without Fertility Treatments - January 2016!  Thank you snow storm Jonas!
    EDD 10/15/16
    At 20-week anatomy scan found IUGR (Intrauterine Growth Restriction), and very low Amniotic Fluid.  Now, I'm High Risk and have weekly ultrasounds to monitor fluid and growth.  If baby runs out of room or is too growth restricted, they will deliver ASAP.  My current goal is to make it to 28 weeks!
