Hey amy, I know what you mean about eating for two, up until yesterday I only wanted to eat things with cheese and pickles, and not even pregnant yet, whats up with that. My beta is friday, it couldn't come sooner. I'm also hyperstimulated, so I look about 6 months pregnant and am super uncomfortable, luckily I think it is getting better not worse today.
Do you all ever feel like this process is taking over your life. I keep having to cancel things, or modify plans. I know it will all be worth it, but come on! I just want to be able to live life and do this, so hard sometimes. Today is just a bad day for this with the hyperstim and all.
And, our other thread was closed this morning when I went to log on for support. Anyway, hang in there Amy. Maybe your appetite is a good sign, I'm rooting for you,
Thanks Tika.. I am sending you baby dust for friday...
I know about taking this taking over our lives, but just wait for the baby.. That will take over your life and you will reschedule a 1000xs due to napping, feeding and pooping!!! :0)
But totally understand.. My sciatic nerve is awful and I can't do anything b/c of this process. I need an MIR or exray to determind the cause and thats not happening b/c I could be pregnant but if I am not then I am starting menopur next month! Ugg on the pain....
I know our other posting was closed.. I am sending baby dust to all those in their 2ww!
Hi there, glad to see lots of you on the new thread. I was feeling a bit grumpy this morning but feeling better now. Amy, you are right, a baby will make it hard to plan too. At least then I know what I'm dealing with (well, usually). Hoping that challenge comes sooner rather than later, for all of us!
Now my head is playing awful games... I keep thinking I am crampy and it did not work... I have no symptoms of being pregnant like the last 3 mc. But DH keeps telling me I said the same things back then too.. But I do feel a little crampy.. I am cd19 and have to wait until monday 9/20.. It could be nothing, but I am sad. I am also in extreme pain due to my sciatic nerve... I am reaching out for some positive thinking...
Hey Amy, crampy can be a positive symptoms, so don't discount that at all. And with all the pain you are in it might be hard to notice other subtle symptoms, and it is early. Just stay positive, there is still a great chance that it worked, every time is different. Your body is probably putting all its energy where it needs to be. We are all pulling for you!
Sciatic can be so painfull, it's amazing what our bodies can handle. I feel your pain, I have arthritis in my back. Pain is an every day thing for me, I've just learnt to adjust and try to ignore it. You will get through it and stay strong. They say pain is mind over matter, some times I think who the heck are these people that say that (laughing) I wonder if they have experienced the pain before.
Like Tika said, every pregnancy is different so think positive, you're a strong woman.
Tika your day is getting closer as well, baby dust.
Hi Sarah, I'm glad we all found Amy's thread. I'm not really sure why they closed the other one. Your new cycle has started all over again. How are you doing?
Hi MT3, how's your progress coming along?
AFM....I started a 3 week cleanse with the new Chinese doctor to jump start getting rid of inflammation. It's not bad and I really don't have to elimate to many foods as I have been trying to eat healthier over the last few months anyway.
So ladies, positive thoughts and prayers for all. No giving up!!!!!
Thanks everyone... I am just in so much pain with sciatic nerve problam, I am getting down on myself... Just came from Costco where EVERYONE had 2 plus kids... Made me longing but I have an awesome family now.. and who knows what their private lives are like..
Taka-- I am sending baby dust to you for tomorrow. I know how you are feeling right now.. Stay present...
Angela keep up the fight.. I so believe in the fight..
Sarah I am so happy you are starting again.. I know if my IUI does not work I have one more try left! Which I equate to as hope that this process can continue as long as we are willing..
I'm wishing you the very best and hoping that you come out with the positive outcome, heaven knows that you both deserve it.
As for me, I'm so down right now, I'm thinking of just leaving it all. The last cycle took all my energy and positivity as well as all of our savings. I feel totally depleted.
I have a 10cms fibroid so everyone asks if I'm pregnant-DAILY of course this pisses me off. The doctor said we must do another cyc le NOW, as if its my only chance.I explained that we need to wait as I teach and cant take time off just like that. Thinking of changing careers too as I dont think I can be around kids as it makes my longing worse.
I understand your feelings Amy being in COst co.
Anyway thanks for your support, and all the best to each of you
MT3- I am so sorry to hear about your terrible day! Does your RE want to remove your fibroid? Will it prevent a successful cycle??? Just go for it! We can not plan everything in our lives.. If you were trying naturally you may have the same timing regarding work... The only way I would stop the process is if my body couldn't do it or I ran out of money.. Timing is just what it is..
AFM- I can relate about the money is a huge factor in this process... If this does not work I have 1 more round of injectables and then the process ends.. I could do 1 of 2 things, $50,000 for a 50% using donor egg or adopt....
Any how, I am thinking about Tika! Baby dust to all
Well, the early results are in, I got my first BFP! I am really happy and excited, but also, a bit nervous and scared. I was never nervous during my first pregnancy, but it has taken so much just to get to this point. My Beta is 374, they said could be one, could be two. Thanks for all your support, I am relieved to finally get to this point in the process. Wishing you all the best. I know this day is hard for some of you, hang in there! Tika
