Just had our 2nd FET yesterday, now the dreaded 2ww. Does anyone know if swimming in a coldish lake is ok, or having a warm bath?
MakanaIf I remember right, my clinic says no swimming no baths for 2ww :(

ociwomanI was told NOT okay to do either until beta test, because bacteria can creep up through the cervix.

MFI, endometriosis and now an abnormal karyotype for me. When do I the good news?!
ollie2013hamiltwin, sometimes you just feel like the bad results keep piling on..keeping a sense of humour is a good thing!
Yesterday, 12:17 PM
hamiltwinSo I don't think things are as bad as I though. About 4% of my cells are 47XXX and the others are normal with 46XX. So I'm a mosaic for Trisomy X. Have no idea how this will impact IVF or whether we need to do PGD. Will have appt with geneticist in the next few weeks!

Turns out baby is breech, so looks like a csection on Wednesday it is. Not ideal, but at least baby is healthy.
mrsfinxyThanks Spot :)
Aug 18 2014 05:56 PM
RaspberryOMG!!! Thank god they checked!!!!
Yup! C-section is easy breezy...try to talk to your doc to make sure they can keep your little family together!!! My hubby and baby stayed with me in recovery and I was able to do skin to skin.
Get up as soon as possible...try to walk around...plus pls take all your meds even when you are at home...that's the key for the painless recovery. Good good luck!!!
Aug 18 2014 06:56 PM
mrsfinxyRaspberry - I know! I am so thankful that they did not induce me....all of the doctors who have checked me in the last few weeks and even months I would say, said that the baby was head down!
Aug 18 2014 07:02 PM
the third friend who got pregnant when my 1st ivf failed just gave birth...I feel like can't tell anyone else im really happy for them when I feel so broken...

11dp5dt- BFP on the clearblue digital with weeks indicator saying 2-3 weeks. Cautiously optimistic!
LC3Woohoo...I have all my body parts crossed for you!

feeling hurt, my 44 year old cousin is 6 months pregnant, this will be her 7th child..
MrsBRAnd we struggle so badly at a young age...
Aug 18 2014 07:53 AM
gibasgirlWhoa. Sending good thoughts your way.
Aug 18 2014 04:38 PM
AllySkyyaww, I'm sorry. like still_hoping mentioned, its natural to feel this way, even more so, as the number of children increase. Your day will come. ((Big Hugs)

I had my first u/s Au8 11, at 8weeks. My next one is in Sept, at 12 weeks. Why do others get such frequent u/s's? Should I be pushing for more?
juiceI don't even have an OB yet! My family doctor has referred me to one and I'm waiting to hear back...waiting...waiting...always waiting. I've seen from signatures that others have had u/s at 6,8,10 weeks back to back, so I was wondering why not me.
Aug 19 2014 12:28 AM
JuneLilyI know the feeling. I had one at 7 weeks, then 10 (that's the one I asked for) and now the next one isn't until 16 aka an eternity from now. I guess it's a good thing since it means we haven't had any indications that something bad is happening, but the u/s provides so much reassurance.
Aug 19 2014 09:36 PM
rollergirlYou should relax and you are in the totally normal range of receiving ultrasounds...The reason I had so many ultrasounds was because there was something wrong....so relax!! I know better to say that but every normal pregnancy does not have multiple ultrasounds...
Aug 19 2014 10:20 PM
It looks like I counted my eggs too soon. My cycle has been cancelled since only 2 follicles were found. :(
AndreaAlwaysHaveHopeI'm sorry,wishing next round will be a success
