Lisa- That's okay it's called baby brain. I felt like for every brain cell my daughter got when I was pg with her I lost 2!

Jenfrancis- Thats great about your numbers, things are looking good. I have a feeling it is only one little one in there, but one healthy baby! You will know soon enough. When do you go for the u/s?

 

jenfrancis - May 2

Ultrasound on May 14th. Aggghhh I am so anxious!
Its going to kill me!

I hope for one healthy one too! (A big headed boy)

But we will love em all!

jenfrancis -

what if you end up with twins or triplets?

Julie

 

jenfrancis - May 2

I will be thrilled with twins and trip-ly thrilled with the triplets! Twins give me more of a chance for our boy, and triplets better those chances too!

I am just praying the pregnancy ends up healthy. I am a bit relieved right now. I just got the call. So since the numbers were more than enough, I am happy.

I was scared I was not eating enough with having been sick last week.

Jenfrancis - good luck.... Why do you want a boy so bad?

Julie

 

jenfrancis - May 2

I have a 14 year old daughter and just for family balancing. I know somewhere deep down my husband wants a boy.

I would not say that is all thats on my mind. I am so happy to be pregnant. Being married 8 years, never using protection, for 8 years, actively trying for at least 6, this is such a blessing. If its a girl, I will be just as happy.

As a matter of fact, hubby said if its a girl I can name her, he's naming the boy.

I will surely let you guys know if its more than one. I would definitely not mind if its one single healthy baby! That would be great too, that its progressing so good.

I am on my progesterone suppositories and prenatal vitamin and baby aspirin.

hmmmm, Jen, your numbers sound similar to a friend of mine's and she is having one but you never know. :)

at 15 days post retrieval my number was 305
at 17 days post retrieval my number was 665
at 24 days post retrieval my number was 7717 and they were looking for like 5000. that was when they thought... twins.
May 14th will be here before you know it girl! :) I know how hard it is to wait. I was practically begging my dr. for another u/s yesterday. I swear he thinks I am addicted to them. I think I am, I can't help but want to see them all the time.

Yeah, I know the numbers dont mean much. So I am not placing too much value in those. I am blessed with what God gives me.

Actually your numbers were low compared to mine! And now look at you, Mommy to be of twins. So, I will wait for that difinitive proof, that ultrasound.

I have seen some of your other posts. Stay positive! I pray both those babies make it. Maybe one is smaller cause she is a little girl! You are small, so just be optimistic. Those babies are fine! Waving and saying hi mom! You think they can tell the camera is on them, when you have an ultrasound?

I know you love seeing those little babies! That doc knows too. Ask and you shall receive! So if you dont ask, they will just try to get you out of the office.

Jenfrancis- So glad you had great numbers. Mine were very high also. My DH thought triplets up until the u/s. We did not know what to expect. We did IUI and I have PCOS so with the gonal-f I had 8 large follicle. They wanted me to stop cycle but I refused. Turns out my instincts were right and we have one beautiful looking baby in there. So I think the numbers are confusing, but ya never know.

 

jenfrancis - May 2

I am happy to hear that you did not give up! You are paying them, so it should be up to the patient!

That is wonderful! I think its fun to imagine my life with triplets, but the odds of all three implanting I hear is not likely.

I am grateful that the IVF worked! So one two or three, my life will be filled with even more love!

I think that same way about LYLY too, if she wants all three frozen embryos thawed and transfered, why cant she have that. Its her body, its her family and her money!
I will be reading this form daily, and I will be curious to know what you are having!

Jen, I feel like the little one is a girl too! and maybe the big one a boy. Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers. I am trying to stay positive and not put too much thought into that Nucal but it's hard. I guess I just expected if there were something wrong that something would have happened by now. I have faith that that baby is still going strong because it is going to be okay. Julie said she knew someone that had a lagging twin the whole pregnancy and it ended up fine in the end. That gives me hope.
What names have you thought of?

I have to wonder if they know that the camera is on them after seeing the bigger one doing a little pelvic thrusting yesterday and then waving. I saw it's little hand and could make out the fingers. It was amazing!

Names - Emily Renee is first choice not after anyone, I just like it.
Shawna Alexandria
Or Alexandra Renee

I dont know. I have not really looked at names too deeply. How about you?

I think after finding out the sex(still a long 5 months away) I will decide then.

I actually picked a boys name tho, :) Shawn Anthony or Alexander

Hi girls,
I'm glad everyone doing fine.I haven't been here for a while,so had to read a lots of new posts and see new ladies-welcome Jen,your numbers look great!
Lately feel a little down.Lyly,yes,I started bcp on Monday(my period was right on time),now I start Lupron on May 14(I'll be in Ukraine visiting my friends back home,just need to get away and take a break from everything),probably I'll have to carry syringe and Lupron in my purse with me- who knows where I may end up in the middle of the day ;D,because I start it 4 days before I come home and there is 8 hours difference in time,so I want to give myself shots according to our time here,so I don't have to change it when I get back.

Jenfrancis - I know what you mean about your hubby wanting a boy. Everyone wanted me to have a boy and low and behold, I am having a girl 8) I am not complaining though. I did not care either way. I can relate to girls better. I can't see myself playing GI Joe's and trucks. Good luck on your multiples..My friend did clomid and ended up with sintenquits (whatever 5 is) 3 didn't make it right away and she delivered the last 2 at 20 weeks and lost them as well. Really sad - but she got pregnant right away again - and is almost 37 weeks now with yet another boy.

ww79girl - are you going to find out the sex when the time comes?

Marina - I understand why you feel down. I had a really tough few years dealing with infertility to the point where I was in deep depression and put on a Bunch of weight. what made it worse is we have no control f our bodies will conceive. The IVF was the worst for me emotionally. The Lupron made me an emotional wreck. My sister and several friends were pregnant and here I was struggling.. it ate me up inside. But on a positive note, I find IVF to have incredible results. I say most people are pregnant within 3 tries of it. And if it doesn't work - there is always the consideration of a donor. Keep your chin up.

I like those Names Jen. It is so hard being a teacher and picking names as not to associate with student's names if you know what I mean. Lyly, you probabaly do. If you like a name and you have a student with that name who drives you nuts, sometimes it is hard to want to use it haha.

So for now...we have chosen Benjamin (Ben) after my Papou/Grandfather. His name was William but everyone called him Ben. I miss him so much and really want to name the boy after him if I have one. For a girl, I love the name Hope. And after everything we have been through, I really think it is fitting.

IF we have two boys or two girls, then we need to come up with 2 other names lol.

Yes, We do want to find out Julie. I have that u/s set up for June 26th which is about 7.5 weeks from now. :) But who knows...maybe I will know sooner. That would be the end of my 19th week.

This weather is so bummy. The sun was barely out here in NH this week. Nothing like last week.

Marina,
Keep your chin up girl. This is a lucky board with lots of girls praying for you. Your time is just around the corner, I just know it.

Julie,I wish we could afford 3 times!Our state and insurance doesn't cover anything has to do with infertility.We did not take that deal where you pay $ 25000 and have 3 tries with frozen cycles, because first, we were positive we'll succeed on a first try(don't ask me why,we just did and our doctor was very optimistic considering me as a very easy case) and second,I don't think I could do it over and over again without turning our life into a nightmare.So,we have what we have-may be 2 more FETs(hopefuly I will get my baby from the first) and I'm done.I wish I had a grandpa millionere to sponsor me.We can't go broke ,I still have one child to worry about and put him through college.
Have anybody had saline songram-what this for and why they do it for frozen cycle?I got a call from my clinic (I have an appt.on Mon. for that) and she was so happy to inform me that we have to pay $1200 on Mon. because "as you know insurance doesn't cover it"
We just paid $1500 for all the blood tests and now this?
And they need half for the FET also.In the begining they told as like it's not a big deal-Oh,FET,it's only around $3000-4000.Well,from what I see so far-it's close to $6000.Not include monitoring after.Hopefully it's all worth it.
