Reshma - Happy Belated b-day. When was it?

Lyly - Thanks for being excited for us. I believe you will have your turn shortly. I have faith. You have had the best attitude as well.

Jen - What is a perinatologist for? I hear girls from my chat use the term. Were you able to check out the chat I listed?

Not much here. I walked this morning for 60 minutes. Now, it's time for work.

Reshma - Thats funny. We will have our hands full!

Um, Jules yep I went to the chat, there are so many women on there with triplets! WOW! Thank you I will lurk for a while.

A perinatologist handles high risk pregnancy and deliveries. Not just for multiples, but even with a singleton, some older women and if your child will have downs syndrome or other complications.

I can not go to a regular OB, they wont take me. So I finally found one last night, I will call them in an hour and make sure they are taking new patients.

Morning sickness kicking in bad this morning. Uggghhh. I wish I was still in bed!

Oh Jen - I had such bad m/s with just my singletons - I don't think I could survive with more than one in my belly. I threew up constantly up untl 23 weeks. I am justv starting to feel better, I am so excited for you. I can't wait to hear each step of your process. So exciting!!!

Do you check out the chat I amon? I think there is only 1 at the moment having triplets. We were very shocked. but if you know your due date you can find a chat that says multiples for the month you are due. babycenter is a Great tool for chats!

Ok, Jules sounds great. I will check out that one too. Thank you.

Going to head on over to babycenter, right now, maybe I will sign up for an account.

Good luck Jen!

Lyly- I am soooooooo excited for you. I really wish you much success with this try. I feel like I know you and we have never met. I am really praying for you. Us New Yorkers we are strong and can make it through to get what we want. I know you will have a happy ending.

Reshema- Happy belated B-Day. Yesterday was my dd birthday.

Jen- Your ticker is so cute I love it. My friend saw a perinatologist with both her pregnancies. She had twins the first time and a singleton the next. She had an incompetent cervix. So it is a great idea to see one with triplets, it will help you have a more successful pregnancy.

Julie- It must feel great to be under the 100 day mark. I am looking forward to 140 just so I can say I am half way there.

 

Jules614 - May 16

JasJulesMom - Congrads on making it half way. I remember being excied just to make 9 weeks. Now I am looking forward to being 30 weeks. All my friends are 36+ weeks and I am so envious of them...

JenFrancis - I found you on the IVF chat. They don't post as often there as here - plus you don't get an e-mail notifying you that someone new posted.

I feel so left out...lol you guys have been busy this am chatting. I'm busy at school but thinking of you girls and glad everyone is doing well! I remember being excited to hit 9 weeks too! Now I am going on 14 with Ronda and Reshma! yipee!!! I swear I am feeling funky things in my belly already and I am not sure that it is actually gas. hmmmm

Reshma, that movie looks so cute. Glad you had a good birthday!

Jen, good luck with the m/s honey. I was lucky to have none. I suggested those sea bands that you use for motion sickness as I have heard those work but I don't think they had helped Ronda was it? Try this out: It is cool to see the dates of when things will happen for your little ones.

Julie, wow! only 98 days to go girl!

Lyly, soooo glad it's Friday!!! :) they are looney today.

Hi girls.

So much going on. I love reading these posts. I feel like I know all of you and like JasJulesMom said, we have never met.

Happy belated birthday Reshma. Sounds like you had such a nice day. I hope I'm pregnant on my birthday and dh and I can do something similar (my bday is at the end of August). I'll be 39. I hate how much age affects the fertility stuff. When the RE told me that I was going to have to do egg donor b/c of my age, it was so upsetting.

Lyly - very happy to hear that things are moving along and that our FET's are going to be close together. I hope you, Marina and me end up on the same day or just a few days apart. It will be nice to go through this with you guys. I'm not sure if I'm ready for the 2ww again. However, I am looking forward to having that time to rest as work has been so crazy lately that having a few days off will be nice.

JenFrancis - did you get in touch with the RE? Are they taking new patients?

I hope you all have a great weekend.

Beth

Lisa - Do you work at a school or you a student?

Beth - Is this going to be the first time that you use a egg donor?

Julie

 

bethnyc - May 16

Julie - we did egg donor for the 1st time in April (fresh cycle). We transferred 2, but neither took. However, we were able to freeze 5 blastocysts and I hope that we can thaw 2 good ones (and maybe have a few still frozen for the future). We are really hopeful for this cycle - I think that we are now prepared and really understand what's happening. The 1st time we were new to this (not only was it our 1st time with egg donor, but our 1st transfer since we never made it this far beforehand).

Has anyone else here done IVF with an egg donor?

Beth

 

Jules614 - May 16

Beth - I have never done IVf with a donor - but there is someone in my other chat who got pregnant from a FET. My lab shows a high success rate by using a donor.

RB - May 16

ok...i was just typing a message and it disappeared... ???

so if you see an unfinished post from me, it was not because i am going nuts! ::)

 

RB - May 16

ok...i guess it didnt show up...anyway, I was venting...

as i mentioned before, my mom and i arent speaking right now but my dad keeps trying to get us to speak to each other. He tells me i should forgive her but she did something really mean and i am not ready to forgive her yet. Jules, she's a bit like your sister...everything is always about her...even when i was a child sometimes i felt like the parent and she was the child...she has to be the centre of attention..she is 60 yrs old but likes to think she is 30...she's always comparing herself to me and my sisters and never misses a chance to tell us that someone told her she looks more like our sister than our mother....for crying out loud! ::) Plus she is always getting herself into difficult situations, financial and otherwise and expects someboby to bail her out...I am tired of rescuing her and she never appreciates it anyway. Yesterday my dad told me she wanted to come and see me and i told him i didnt want to see her....just being around her right now upsets me and i dont want to be surrounded by negative vibes right now....am i being selfish and unreasonable?

 

Jules614 - May 16

RB - I totally hear ya! Your mom sounds like my sister. Not once, but twice she has moved in with my aprents, her family and all because she needed help - when you are married, you should spread your own wings. She makes my parents do daycare and then she cries to them every other day about her issues stressing my parents out more and more.. then my mom yells at me that her children make her ill because they suck the life out of her... hello, I have never asked my parents for anything! In the 4 yrs I have been a mom, they have baby sat maybe 5 times!!!!!!

Julie

 

vw79girl - May 16

Julie, I work at a school. High School. As an Art Teacher. :)

Reshma, NO, you are not being selfish or unreasonable. The last thing you need right now is stress. She should respect that and care for your well being and that of your little one growing inside you. I hate sometimes that people can be so inexcusably mean to the people they should love the most.

Beth, I know what you mean with age and the fertility stuff. It can be so frustrating. Hang in there!
