Newbie Intro — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

Newbie Intro

Hi ladies,

@Kelley421 very kindly messaged me and let me know about this board. It was perfect timing, as I wasn't sure where to go next.

Tomorrow (Friday), I will be 5 weeks along following the eSET of one perfect, male hatching frostie. Our IF journey lasted about a year and a half and included two miscarriages, two rounds of IUI, and three rounds of IVF (all in my sig).

Like so many of you, I am cautiously optimistic. I was actually so relieved to see so many of you also as anxious as me about miscarrying again. Every cramp (which occur daily) or twinge makes me paranoid, and I'm constantly checking for blood. I know I need to chill out, but my previous experiences are seared into my memory.

I look forward to getting to know you and supporting you all. I noticed there are weekly boards and trimester boards. Can anyone tell me where I should jump in or if there are other group etiquette things I should know? 

Thank you!
