Hello wonderful ladies! I know it’s been a while since my last update. When we took our break over the holidays through January I really made it a break and avoided all things infertility. I’m so excited to see all the amazing, happy news!!!
Holding, I am over the moon excited for you!!! Congratulations on your pregnancy!!! I can imagine you have so many emotions right now. I hope that you are able to be excited and enjoy each day, because you deserve it so much.
Arbor, I can’t believe your little boy is 11 weeks old already! I’m glad to hear the sleep deprivation seems so tolerable. I’ve always joked with friends that one day I will be the happiest sleep deprived person on the planet
BBluck, I too have a friend who’s son had to wear a helmet and he is perfectly normal now. He was an IVF twin also. You must be so busy with double the precious bundles! I can’t imagine how much work but how much fun it must be!
Schmoo, Congratulations on your pregnancy, and for getting a great test result!! I’m sure that was a huge relief.
Elen, it seems like just yesterday you brought your little girl home! Congrats on getting started with another try. Do you have a targeted transfer date yet? We may be really close together.
Jenn, how are you feeling? It’s so exciting we have another delivery right around the corner!
FranS, Welcome!! You are right! This is a very special group of ladies. Keep us posted on your progress.
AFM, I had my first lining check today. Fortunately there was a minimal amount of fluid if any in my uterus. Like the last several times we’ve tried this, as soon as I started estrogen I was cervical mucus city. It was a big relief to see that it seems to be getting better. My lining measured 6.7, which is good for the initial check but it isn’t triple striped yet. Hopefully that will happen as it thickens. My E2 levels are though the roof with the del estrogen, over 2800 after 7 days of estrogen! I feel really fortunate that the only side effect I’ve had is sore boobs. I go back on Wednesday for another u/s and bw. So, now we just pray that my lining keeps growing, becomes triple striped and the fluid stays away. Our transfer is scheduled for March 15th, but it looks like we could be going out there a week sooner. We are doing a single embryo transfer because CCRM’s twin rates are so high with CCS (the chromosomal testing we did) embryos. Because I have a history of PPROM, they absolutely do not want me carrying twins. Their pregnancy rates are still really high for single transfers, but we’re mentally preparing ourselves for the possibility of needing more than one attempt.
I hope everyone enjoys their weekend! I’ll be sure to keep you all posted
