    Thanks! It all still feels a little surreal. I was almost scared to do the siggy but decided to jump in the deep end!

    Good for you!! I hope the DHEA results in an amazing cycle. It helped me a lot when I did it! No stress No stress...

    You will undoubtedly get used to it soon enough!! Can't wait for you to join May DD (you probably already have...I haven't been out there) or Expecting after Struggling (EAS). I've posted in both rooms. Not much to post about there at this time, but hopefully as time progresses I will get into posting in those rooms.

    Thanks, Rhonda! I'm really hoping between all the relaxing and DHEA I've got good results for next month. But whatever happens, we're going for it! Glad your SIL is doing well. Can't wait for your u/s on Thursday.

    AFM: I'm fighting a bit of a battle with morning sickness. No vomiting yet... but so much dry wretching! I just have to remind myself that it is all for a good cause, and that I'm lucky to be in a situation to have ms at all . I have my first ultrasound tomorrow. . . fingers crossed for a heartbeat!
    You must be excited for your US tomrr. for HB!!
    I realized women feel more nausea when their stomach is empty. Have some snacks in the morning.

    Hahaha! Me too!! I ate constantly through the first trimester. It really was the only thing that kept me from feeling queasy. I was lucky and didn't ever get to the point of vomiting, but I had an upset stomach for a long time. And I've probably gained a little too much weight, but I don't care.. I'll worry about that next year.

    Sounds like we are on the same schedule! Congratulations! I am taking prometrium 3xday and PIO shots. Also estrodial for good measure. I have never taken so many meds!

    At my drs office they recommend anti-nausea lollipops, I never tried but they may work...

    Good luck to those getting ultrasounds!

    I will try that! I've been walking he dog in the evenings and lightly running on the elliptical machine, but maybe I'll chuck the elliptical altogether and give walking a try? Now I don't have to drive to the gym lol

    Ourou that is great! Hearing that heartbeat must be a fabulous experience!

    Stacie, glad to hear it doubled. I get my next blood work tomorrow! I go every other day now, not sure when an ultrasound will be.

    Southern Belle, you have the same protocol that I had, follistim and menapur. It worked for me! Good wishes your way!

    CRAZY???
    If I don't get a BFP me & DH discussed using a surrogate and me for a future FET (after a couple of months). That way we transfer whatever thaws out of our 7 embabis and split the survivors between me & the surrogate (she gets 2 because she would have the best chance of pregnancy rate). I wouldn't expect all 7 to survive the thaw, but I would transfer 3 to me if in fact this cycle doesn't work. I know it sounds crazy and risky for multiples with me & the surrogate, but FET does not have the same success rate as fresh, so I don't think it is unreasonable. Of course if we both get pregnant, that would be a trip! It would be kinda neat so long as we both have singletons. This was just us being desperate for a BFP of course and I'm sure our RE would talk us down or even not agree to do it. The things we think of when we get desperate for something to FINALLY work! LOL
    Wow, hope everything goes well this month! It would be something to have a surrogate and both get prego! What a beautiful walk of faith you're taking! It's very encouraging!

    My DH and I are talking IVF if we don't end up with exciting news in the next two months. What an adventure it is!

    Hiya! Hoping you get some very good news in the next month and can skip IVF altogether! But if you end up doing it, this is a great place to come for information/support. Good luck and KUP!

    You ladies are so sweet and obviously patient...sorry it's been a crazy busy day and I'm taking a few minutes before my PIO shot to update you all...

    We have a perfectly healthy and growing baby with a HB of 135!!! It was so small and hard to make out details, but I showed my DH and DD the head and tail and curvature of the spine and they both were able to see the shape as well. It was awesome!! I haven't been this happy in such a very long time. This has been a magical day for me and I'm just so relieved and...well, pregnant!! Thanks everyone for looking for my update and caring so much. It really means a lot to me. Love you all...

    I forgot to mention, I graduated from my RE today and I will start seeing my OB now. I can't wait to call them tomorrow. I was instructed to continue for 23 days: PIO shots & Estrogen patches. I am to continue until 32 weeks: Lovenox & baby aspirin. I will find out in about 2 weeks if I have to continue the IVIG. So far all of my E2, progesterone & betas have been normal and well within the proper ranges and the HB was strong and baby is measuring 6w6d when I am at 7w0d, so he is right on schedule. They were very pleased, no spotting, bleeding, cramps and with all labs continuing to be very good results they won't need to keep seeing me at RE. What a relief this has all been. I'm just overjoyed today...
