Mo, I like your thought- one by one. I will keep that with me. :)

 

lyly14 - November 19

Mo- That is such a great idea. I'm going to have to run out and buy some of those shawls. It's the perfect cover! Would be great today since its only going to be like 38 degrees here today. Thanks! As far as the whole sex thing. I was told not to have intercourse initially because I was bleeding and spotting and have not gotten the green light from the doc as of yet but I just figured since I hadn't spotted in almost a week it was ok. But I did have spotting after we did so..... I guess now we will hold off. I go to see my doc tomorrow and will talk to him about it and see what he says.

Ok girls-the numbers are in and it looks like we will be having twins! I cannot believe it! There are actually three sacs-but one is much smaller than the other two-the RE said if he thinks that we will have twins and the third will not make it.

I am so excited! I go back next week for another u/s and hopefully we will hear the heartbeat.

Lyly-with my DS I did not use maternity clothes until the end of the 5th month. I did similar to you except instead of buying the clothes extender I just used a hair elastic. You just wrap it through the belt loop and around the button and it does wonders! I am sure though that b/c this is your second child it is much harder to keep under wraps-I heard the belly pops much earlier.

Melissa- Wow that is exciting! I was wondering what happened with your u/s today. You never know with that smaller sac, sometimes they suprise you. You should be able to see the hb next week. I can't wait to have my u/s tomorrow. I go right after work , so I actually have to sneak out a few minutes early because I have to go to his other office which is further away.

I didn't show with my dd until I was like 6 -7 months pg. This is actually my 5th pregnancy. The first I had my dd then I lost the next 2 one at 5 weeks and the other at 4 1/2 weeks so I didn't have time to show. The last one I made it to 11 weeks and that one I definitely showed early (around 8 weeks). Here I am at 7 wks 5 days and already showing. I have used the rubber band on the pants throughout my first pregnancy but most of my work clothes don't have a regular button for me to wrap the band around.

Melissa,OMG-twins?Possible TRIPLETS?!
Now I'm scared.For some reason I didn't think that I might end up with twins also...and now I'm scared.
See,girls, it all depends on embryo quality.Fresh didn't work because they didn't pick the good guys!Another try,different embies.Gosh,miracles do happen!
Mo-make yourself a ticker too, so we can keep up with the dates.I'm waiting for my u/s.
Lyly-good luck tomorrow!So,now what?They kick you out to regular ob?I can't wait,I'd go even tomorrow.How long are they keeping you on estrace?I decided to keep taking one pill a day to be on a safe side-cheap insurance,like dr.Jacobs said.
Maybe we should start a new tread?Ours says"no bfp's",but we all bfp(Nicole will move with us)?
Just a thought.

 

lyly14 - November 20

Marina- They told me I will be on progesterone until 12 weeks and I am to stay on estrace 2mg daily ( but not sure till when). So I don't know when they kick me out to the ob. I have an appt with the high risk ob on Dec 4th regardless because they want to see me before I am in my 2nd trimester. I don't think it is a bad idea for you to stay on 1 pill for a bit. I was on 2 pills until 6wks 5days then went to one pill. I had bloodwork today and they called and said to stay on all my meds. I am so excited and nervous about tomorrow. I bet you can't wait for your u/s. Oh yeah there is another thread for bfp's so I posted over there. I think we could start posting on that thread so just look for it. Nicole can join us of course but I'm sure she is eager for some new cycle buddies!

Nicole- I hope you know you can you always vent, question or just talk to us about anything, but I also hope you find some girls still going through the process to share stories with!

 

Ianmichael3 - November 20

Melissa: ;D that is awesome- like lyly says, you never know with that third, but for now.... just BASK in the glory of you being pregnant! I will hope and pray for all of you that you continue to have healthy happy pregnancies, deliveries and babies! lots and lots of babies!!

I would be happy to move with you all- as soon as I'm preggers.... for today- I feel kind of melancholy or indifferent. I think I'm where Ronda was this time last year.... that I'll be suprised if IUI works- so it's like the hope is gone, but without any kind of anger or grief. At least, like I said, that's how I feel today--- after taking my clomid for 3 days. It seems to take me on an emotional roller coaster ride that my DH could do without! ::)

XOXO!

But PLEASE do let me know if you start posting on a different thread- i'd love to check in on you all!

So far, no one new seems to have posted anything that looks like it would match to where I'm at right now. So if you see anything you think I'd be interested in, let me know!

 

lyly14 - November 23

Nicole -the clomid always had a terrible affect on me emotionally. That really stinks that nobody is going through it with you. Have you tried any other websites? There must be some girls out there planning IUI cycles for dec/jan. So when do you anticipate your IUI to be?

Melissa- How are you doing? Are you going to join Marina and I on the other thread "veterans lounge-bfp"?

 

Ianmichael3 - November 24

lyly: Yeah, I think I'm going to just keep looking for some more support- I have Ronda, so that helps tremendously- her new DD is just perfect, you should see her :)

There's also 2 girls that work with my dh and another gal, who is a friend of a friend- although she is now very busy with her 3month old baby! I am in a pretty good spot, emotionally this time. It's like I told my boss- although my hope is pretty much gone, I'm not very depressed about it. I think just breaking through the idea of us needing some assistance & also being very aware of my blessings thus far in life. If it doesn't happen for us, it won't be the end of the world- we'll just be able to enjoy our little family of three & go on more vacations, etc...

I'll keep posting my progress..... still waiting on my Lh surge to go to the RE's office that morning for the u/s to determine whether or not we'll be doing IUI.... gotta have the right sized follicle........

love to all :)

 

lyly14 - November 25

Nicole- We are all here for you pg or not! You can always come to me for anything. I can't wait to hear about your follicle developement. Sending you lots and lots of baby dust!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How the heck do I get a ticker?? I went to baby-gaga.com but I don't know which URL to select (HTML, BBCODE, EZCODE) and where do I paste it in my profile??

Nicole,how that folicle?
Mo,I'm not sure which URL,we'll wait for Lyly,but I think you can try HTML or BBCODE and see which is working.
I'm going to work on mine also.I made one already,but now I have to change it to twins!

Hey girls,why don't we all move to Veteran's lounge ...tread,so we don't have to jump all over to check posts.Nicole,you too dear,please.You are part of the family and will be preggo sooner or later!

 

lyly14 - November 26

Mo- I used the BBCode and just copied and pasted it into my signature on my profile. Hope that helps.
