     Q: What is your favorite ice cream flavor and combo of toppings (make me drool)? 

    I am a chocolate peanut butter kind of girl. The other day we made homemade peanut butter ice cream with peanut butter cups mixed throughout! Heaven on earth!

  • Beta Number 2 came in at 1143 yesterday :)

    I go back next Monday for another round of bloodwork. I am a little stressed about this. I am pretty confident the bloodwork is more to check my Progesterone than anything else - but I kind of want to be done with the anxiety of getting beta results....

    I also have an ultra sound lined up for the 14th :)

    Question - if its just ice cream. Mint Chip with Chocolate Sprinkles (jimmies - whatever you want to call them)..... Or if we're talking Sundaes - then Vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, peanut butter sauce, whipped cream and reeces pieces... YUM!

  • 5dp3dt - BFN on a FRER. I know it's early, but I'm hoping something shows in the next few days.

    QOTD: last night I had a milky way chocolate ice cream bar. It was divine. 

    Photobucket
  • Sending out lots of good luck to everyone!  Congrats on the recent BCPs and major (((hugs))) to anyone in need of them!

    Update:  After a roller coaster week of low but rising E2 (way too many blood draws!), I triggered last night. ER will be tomorrow.  If we make it to ET, that will be on Saturday.  Since I'm so late in the game, I'm wondering if I should jump over to the August beach bums???

    QOTD: Ice cream is one of my all-time favorite foods, so I'm a fan of most flavors.  My favorite is probably Chocolate Moose Tracks (chocolate ice cream with chocolate/peanut butter swirls and chocolate-peanut butter cups) or any chocolate ice cream that is overloaded with more chocolate.

  • My beta numbers didn?t rise and are now down to zero.  So, it?s back to the drawing board.  We are going to take a month or so off to clear our heads and then decide what?s next.  WTF is scheduled for August 13th.


    QOTD: I love Daiquiri Ice.  It?s the perfect summer ice cream IMO.

    I'm 7dp5dt.  My beta isn't until 8/6, so I am planning to POAS Thursday morning which will be 9dp5dt.  If it's negative, Thursday will be a rough day.  I'm hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst.

    Q:  My favorite is Chocolate Devotion from Cold Stone.  It's chocolate ice cream, chocolate syrup, chocolate chips and brownies.  It's to die for and a must have whenever AF visits.  Hopefully, I won't need it this month.

    Happily married Since May 2008. TTC#1 Since May 2010.
    Me: 29, Mild DOR
    DH: 31, SE mostly normal, 1st SE morph 5%, 2nd SE morph 15%...yeah!.

    *3rd RE* April-June -Break Cycles begin prep for IVF by doing 2 Heparin injects daily....fun fun!
    IVF #1 - ER 7/19, ET 7/24, 2 beautiful embies transferred. Beta 8/2 = BFN
    *New RE...yes again* FET Nov 2012 with our lone ranger = BFFN

    Feb. 2013 IUI #3 = BFP!!!, Beta #1 (15dpIUI) = 90, Beta #2 (17dpIUI) = 210, U/S Scheduled for 3/18
  • Still waiting to test. Driving me CRAZAAAAY!!!

     

    Favorite ice cream:

    Chocolate chip mint with nothing on it is the standard but when I want something special I get a hot fudge and caramel sundae with fresh bananas. Hell yeah. 

    ETA: and my love for sweet is why Mr. Gosling below likes to see me in my stretchy pants.

    Boy/girl fraternal mono/di twins-- lost our sweet baby girl at 22 weeks due to SIUGR
    Preterm labor at 23 weeks 4 days, lost our sweet baby boy.
  • 8dp5dt.  The second line was a little darker today on an FRER and a DS special.  I know I shouldn't be doing it but, I'm addicted.  This 2ww has given me a front row seat on the crazy train!  Can't wait until beta on Thursday.

    Good luck to the Sparklers with upcoming betas and congrats to those with BFPs!

    Question:  Mint chip or pistachio.

    TTC since 6/2010 Me: PCOS DH: Morph 1% Sept 2010- Metformin Apr/May/June 2011 - unmonitored clomid-BFN Aug 2011- Robotic myomectomy for lg fibriod - 6 month break Oct 2011 & Jan 2012 HSG's - tubes clear Feb/Mar 2012 monitored clomid + ovidrel-BFN Apr 2012- Another break - hernia repair Consult with RE July 2012- IVF with ICSI 7/18 ER- 24R 23M 18F 7/23 2 transferred 8 frosties 8/2 Beta#1 96 8/6 Beta#2 457 8/8 Beta#3 692 8/10 Beta#4 997
  • Still in the 2ww, although I absolutely cannot wait for my beta to find out, so I am starting testing on Thursday which is 8dp3dt. I have an important meeting in the afternoon on Monday after my beta, so I will not answer the phone and I just can't leave it to voicemail without having an idea!

    Q: What is your favorite ice cream flavor and combo of toppings (make me drool)?

    I love chocolate, B&J's Half Baked, mint chip, etc. When it comes to toppings, though, I would rather have plain chocolate or vanilla then load up on cookie dough, brownie bites, peanuts, Reese's cups or some other super fattening thing. You will find no fruit here!  Wink
