Me: 32 33 Wife: 28 29

The problem - two girls can't make a baby without some help

4/15 - IUI #3 - 100mg Clomid - BFN

6/15 - Stimming for ER

7/15 - 20 eggs retrieved, 19 fertilized, 15 embryos at day 3, 8 frozen at day 5

8/15 - MRI scheduled - no septum! No surgery.  Just a whopper of a fibroid, 9.5cmx8.5cm

Thank you Marby. I check up on the girls from that group from time to time but it's easy to lose track of some as the group was so big.  When is your EDD?  The FET calculator on this site tells me mine is Dec 24th however my clinic says Dec 26th.  I'll take either! :D

Hi Delhibelly and congrats on the bfp! So nice to see a sac in the right spot, FX for seeing the HB next time.  When do you go for your next u/s?

 

Welcome Susie, yaayyy for your first bfp!  I kinda wish I had some nausea, anything to give me some reassurance but I hope yours isn't too bad.

 

My little bean is the size of an apple seed and his/her heart should have started beating today! <3

Hi
@sunshine124..I'm hoping to go for my next ultrasound on the 29th...i thought the 2ww was long well this wait is just as hard!
Yay heartbeat on your little apple seed!, so then I too should have a HB as my due date is a bit earlier ..I thought it wasn't til 7 weeks..?

@susie hello and congrats! Sorry about the nausea, that can't be fun. I wouldn't mind a super quick bout, as so far I've had no sore boobs, no nausea just tired and always thirsty :(( can't tell if it's just laziness, but every few days I spend the day on the sofa!
Bit frustrated I can't see your posts whilst replying! Lol

Agreed Delhi this wait for u/s is harder than the 2ww. The due date calculator on this site says cardiac contractions started yesterday but detectable on u/s around May 5th. I'm 5 weeks today and should be 6 weeks 4 days by then. I think typically can be seen between 6 and 7 weeks but I've heard of some not seeing it till 8 weeks.

I'm on PIO 1ml a day, Estrace 4mg twice a day. I was told I could stop ASA but I'm scared too lol

Hi ladies.
Yes I agree. The wait for the 2nd/3rd beta and then Ultrasound is brutal. I keep waiting for the other shoe to fall....you get so use to a negative outcome how can this possibly be positive. Even first time for a second line I didn't believe it.
I am 5 w on Wednesday. Booked us for 7 weeks as I should see a HB by then.
I am on ASA, PIO, estrace patches and Vit D
Took aPOAS this am. Control and test line are now the same color. For doubling time to be correct my beta needs to be over 600 on Monday. Fingers crossed and prayers said.

Delhi, I'm also taking prenatal vitamin, Vitamin D, Calcium and Extra 1000mg Folic Acid - these weren't "prescribed" though I'm just taking them on my own although the clinic does recommend the folic acid.

 

Susie, I'm the same, just waiting for the other shoe to drop and this will all be over. FX for your beta tomorrow!

 

I called my clinic and asked for a second beta (they normally only do one if beta is at the expected level or higher) but I sure would like the reassurance and to know the doubling time honestly. I hope they call me back tomorrow and give me the go ahead.

Yay December babies!!! My approximate due date is December 17th, 2016

 

Marby, thank you for starting the thread

 

Delhibelly, our dates are so close, you are a couple of days ahead of me. My current meds are PIO, Estrace (2mg-3tid),  Crinone, aspirin 81mg, & prenatal vitamins.

 

Sunshine124, Marby & K8_YVR glad to see you here.

 

Susie, I hope you get a fantastic 3rd beta tomorrow.

 

My 2nd ultrasound is this Wednesday and I am hoping we see a heartbeat, I will only be 6w4d.

 

Hope everyone has a good week and great updates coming.

Hi everyone, so good to see some familiar names and some new ones too. I am 6w5d today. Got to see a strong heartbeat at 6 weeks, so fx for those of you with upcoming u/s. It was the best thing I have ever seen! Next u/s is 5/4 at 8 weeks, will get one at 10 and 12 weeks & then graduate from RE to my OBGYN. Wish I could just stay, I could get use to seeing my baby every 2 weeks!

Hi everyone, I have my first ultrasound tomorrow and I am so nervous. My clinic gave me a due date of Dec 16th or 17th depending on which calendar they use. I am taking a bit of a leap joining so soon but I couldn't help myself, I am just so hopeful. Goodluck to everyone waiting to hear those heartbeats!

Hi everyone
Exciting times for us all! I recognize some familiar 'faces' from the March FET group :)

I agree that this waiting between betas and ultrasounds is worse than the TWW! So far I've had a 6w2d ultrasound and heard a little heartbeat. Yay! I have an 8w2d ultrasound this Friday and it can't come soon enough! I think everything will be ok, but have had some light bleeding on and off which is scary! The clinic thinks it is the endometrin suppositories and I hope they are right. Can't wait to come off those in 2 weeks!

My expected DD is December 7. Winter babies for us!

Hi everyone,

 

Just got my second beta results and clinic is happy with it (1320 at 15dp5dt) so I am released until my first ultrasound May 13th. 

Nervous and excited and really hoping this is it for us... I'm still early of course, but I've never come this far. 

I agree, it feels weird to wait between beta and u/s... it's over 2 weeks away!

 

Winter babies are the best babies... ;)

Hang in there SUSIE...as long it's going up it could just be a late bloomer, so don't give up yet girl!!

Thanks for all your meds info...was wondering if anyone was taking iron supplements?? I'm a vegetarian but don't have low iron normally, for the past 2 weeks I've been beyond tired...like 11 hours sleep, take a shower, need a nap!! Which I'm sure in part is pregnancy but was thinking I should prob be on an iron supplement....after googling I noticed that all the sites recommend about 27-30mg a day...I don't want to self prescribe but I don't see my dr until May 6th!

Hello and congrats albrooks11, readyandwaiting, k8yvr, pcanoe, wantobmommy, Lua and dragnfly!! Looks like we got ourselves a nice little group going!!! Yay us!!!
