Marina -

I am still in Florida for 8 more days. Hubby goes back to MA while I am at my appointment. So, if anything happens he won't even be here which sucks. Trip has been OK - daughter has strep.

I hope everything is fine ,don't worry before you have to.let me know what doctor says.
And stay away from your older one-you don't need to get an infectoin from her!

Hi girls :)

Julie ~ hope everything is okay and it is merely that cream or the applicator causing the bleeding. Let us know how it goes. When were they able to tell you the sex of the baby? What week does that happen?

Lyly,
god bless you for being so patient. all of the moving around and waiting etc. must be aggrivating. Hang in there.

Marina~ where is home for you?

Ronda~ those sea bands are worth a try. I have heard from others that they worked...even if they help a little, that is something.

Hi Julie- So sorry to hear about the bleeding. Good luck with the doctor today. I hope everything is just fine. Being pg is so exciting and scary sometimes. Keep us posted. You'll be in my thoughts.

Marina- I don't think it was enough of a time difference to affect the implantation window, just enough to lose my eggs. It is a matter of money really, I was hoping we would have more embies to try a few FET's but guess not. Fresh cycles are so expensive and time consuming. Too late now, but I am definitely going for the other consult. Depending on what the regular endocrinologist says, I may go ahead with the FET with my original RE if he can get me going before my consult. Then I will see the new guy as a backup for next time. So sad, already planning next try after FET. So much for optimism!

Lisa- It's not easy but I am trying to be patient. I feel like so much is going on right now, I don't know which way to turn. So maybe the delay was just meant to be.

Everything is OK. I just have a yeast infection and the applicator probably irritated me. I am on antibiotics now - so no more applicator. Kaitlyn's heart beat was 160. They said my cervix was right where it should be.

vw79girl -I found out the sex at 18 weeks.

Lyly - Thanks for thinking of me. I am going to live.

I know someone said they lived in NH - I am about 30 mins from NH.

For anyone who needs free stuff for the baby or babies - log onto http://www.freecycle.org and type your town in. People givea away free stuff all the time whether it is baby clothes, cribs, strollers, maternity clothes. I have posted in the past that I need 1X maternity clothes and have got some nice stuff. This website is great for grandparents who don't want to buy all new stuff. My mom in law got an entire room of baby furniture this week off the site.

As for me, I saw the doctor and they were great. They checked my cervix which looks good. The baby's heartbeat was a stable 160 bpm. I do indeed have a yeast infection. No more applicators - the OB gave me antibiotics. He was shocked it was my first yeast infection ever. I guess they are very common especially around pregnancy. I am so relieved.

Hi ladies,
Im new to is board but not taking IVF, I've just started clomid on the 9th of this month, has anyone tried clomid and been sucessful?? or know someone who has been sucussful, IVF is my next step BABY DUST TO ALL!!!!!!!!!!

 

Jules614 - April 15

ECARROLL - Welcome! I did clomid with no sucess - all i got were huge cysts. But I have two friends who have got pregnant off clomid.

Julie

 

vw79girl - April 15

Ecarrol... welcome! I did not have any success on clomid. Tried it for 3 or 4 cycles in addition to doing IUI's. It's a good place to start though. If you can get it to work without having to go through IVF then that would be great. :) good luck to you!

Julie, I'm glad everything was okay. That stinks about having a yeast infection. I have felt them slightly coming on and luckily have not gotten one yet. Watch me get one next week. Thanks for that website too. Julie where are you in your pregnancy again?

I live in Manchester NH, is that still @ a half an hour from you and are you a Red Sox fan? :)

Lyly, sometimes delays are good. Listen...we had done two fresh cycles and then a frozen from Feb. 07 through July 07. After that we had found a house and were packing and moving, my brother was having heart surgery, we had to put our cat of 10 years down and our old landlord was giving us a hard time about giving us a security deposit back after 7 years of living there and leaving the place in great shape. I also lost both of my grandmothers, one in Nov. and the other in Jan. My husband and I decided to put off the last IVF until this past Feb. It was the best thing we could have done. :) I truly believe that everything happens for a reason and what is meant to be will find a way. If we had done it any earlier, I feel the stress would have ruined everything.

Ecarrol- Welcome to the group. I have done clomid too, but no success. We did it for 4 cycles before moving on to injectibles. During my first injectible cycle we found out dh had sperm issues. So that is probably why the clomid never worked for us. Hopefully you will have better luck. Lots of baby dust to you.

Lisa- you are probably right. I am not going to stress about it. I have waited this long, I might as well make sure we do it right.

vw79girl - I am 21 1/2 weeks. My due date is August 22nd. I live on the North Shore. I guess I am a red sox fan, yet I am not much into sports. My family are big Red Sox fans. How is your pregnancy going? Is this your first

Julie, this is the farthest I have ever been in a pregnancy. I was pregnant on my own about 5 years ago with my ex husband and lost the pregnancy 2 days after getting a positive test. My second time was our first ivf cycle. I became pregnant but had a low beta of 78 on my first blood draw. It then dropped to 33 and then to 4. They ruled it a chemical pregnancy. After that we did another fresh cycle and then a frozen. Both unsuccessful. Took @ 7 months off and well...here we are. 9.5 weeks pregnant. :) So far it is going well. Unlike poor Ronda, no m/s. Just tired and want to eat constantly. And sore bbs.

Thanks ladies for the warm welcome!! ;D
can you all explain to me IVF and does it hurt do insurance cover? Thanks and baby dust to all 8)

 

vw79girl - April 16

ECarroll,
what did you want to know about IVF exactly and my insurance only covered ultrasounds and bloodwork and meds. NONE of the IVF which cost us @ 17k.

~Lisa

 

Jules614 - April 16

Lisa - 78 is a low beta number. My first beta number was only 45. 2 days later 83. I freaked when I got the 45. I assumed it was a chemical pregnancy too... but I guess all they look forward is the number increasing and it doesn't really matter how low it is.

Congrads on making 8 weeks. Glad no problems yet!

Julie

 

ECARROLL - April 16

Well what exactly happens, do they take your eggs and freeze them? or do they take dh sperm? i know i sound like a dope but I have no idea what's it about
