  • Congrats Mrs.McIrish!!!! Don't know if you posted any photos but will be looking for the post

    @sorrellam30 and @runcc37 fx for a great beta on Monday!

    @TRexsMum - how frustrating but I have heard the same about Prozac.  Hopefully it won't be any big deal and the doctors are just preparing you for a worst case scenario.

    Spent the day in the city with my Surro's son and he had the best day.  Couldn't believe the little guy walked over two miles with me from toy store to toy store and back.  I think riding the regular train was his favorite part.

    QOTW:  My angel is my surrogate and couldn't be more thankful.

    Failed Matches - December 2012, May 2013, December 2013
    Moved on to  gestational surrogacy with a family friend who is our angel and due 7/23/15

  • TRexsMum - Your situation sound very stressful.  I wish you strength and patience.  

    Good luck everybody with betas and current pregnancies!

    Check-In:  Waiting, crocheting, trying to stay calm...
    Lupron adn Delestrogen are kicking my butt with nausea and hot flashes. I just transitioned from Lupron a week ago. My first baseline USG went well, the second to check the lining in on 12/2. Our donor starts meds on 11/29! I am hopeful for the first time in a very long time.

    QOTW: I'm thankful that i am still sane after all of the IF related stuff. I am thankful for my awesome husband! I'm thankful for beautiful nature around me and sun! (we just moved to Colorado a year ago)

    TTC since 2007; Unexplained; 8PG: 4CP, 2EP, 2MC w/HB at 8-9 weeks
    Getting ready for DIVF #1 - Transfer 12/16!

  • @jimBobCooter - 11 weeks is so exciting, can't wait to hear positive news regarding genetics. Are you planning to find out the gender?

    @runcc37 - Thank you for doing the checkin, FX for doubling betas!!

    @chicagobride07 -  I've got everything crossed for a good outcome from the Transfer this week!

    @mrsmcirish - yay!! 

    @vibee - ugh yes, I had the worst side effects from those meds! worth it but Geez , killed me!

    @doodiebug18 & @sorrellam30 - FX for awesome, doubling betas!!

    My pregnancy is good so far. This is my dream and I am so excited!! but I feel like crap. I'm about 14 weeks and I have another awesome headache, nausea, fatigue. Also, having crazy dreams!

    worth it but Really hoping 2nd Tri is everything women say it is. I have an appt for the anatomy scan on Dec 16th, until then I've been using my doppler on the daily!

    *I am grateful that we decided to pursue IVF with Donor Eggs and that has been a success so far. I had so many fears and reservations about the process. Now all I can think about is being a Mom!

    My heart is as open as the sky.

    Sorry I'm late to the party. Saturday the 24/7 nausea set in and won't let up. I only feel ok when I'm actually eating. Of course, that's only after I battle through to figure out what I want to have. I go back Monday for my second u/s to hopefully see a heartbeat! So far my betas have been great, so I'm trying to stay positive. My EDD according to LMP is July 17th. I'll hopefully know for sure on Monday.

    @TRexsMum‌ I'd be pissed off too! I hope everything turns out okay!

    @sorrellam30‌ FX for doubling betas!

    @doodiebug18‌ I hope your 2ww flies by!

    @Thespis7‌ Hope AF shows soon!
