Thank you!
I had IVF and have also been taking prednisolone for natural killer cells for the first 3 months. One side effect is that they suppress quite a few symptoms, so I'm only just now getting a bit of nausea as I come off them. I've been really lucky so far, just massive tiredness! I'm a teacher and so have also been lucky not to have to work for the whole of the first trimester! Back to school tomorrow and I can't wait to tell everyone my news.

How about you? Any symptoms yet? Is this going the same as your first pregnancy?

Oh how exciting!! And nice that you have felt good so far! Are you feeling ready to go back to school? What do you teach?

I had symptoms the day I found out...headache, chills and hot flashes. But nothing since. That was 2 days ago. I tested this morning with an IC and the line was lighter than yesterday, so that has been on my mind. Slightly worried but trying not to.

The line does do that in the early days, so try not to worry (I know how hard that is!). Your urine might be more dilute or the test might be less sensitive, so many factors influence it when the levels are lower at the start. I tested several times a day because I was in disbelief, but I was already 15dpo when I got my bfp so it was pretty dark this time. Even so, the second day, the control line was less faded, which freaked me out. Maybe wait a few days, if you can, before you test again. Do you know what dpo you are?

I teach French and Spanish at a fairly tough secondary school (11-16) and it can be really great and really difficult. Last year was hard, but I started the school year with a miscarriage and ended with a round of IVF, so it was a full on year. This year, I'm only in for 6 months, then I get maternity leave for at least 9 months, yay! As a result, I'm excited to be going back, seeing colleagues and students, sharing my good news.

Let me know how you get on. I'm thinking of you xxx

How was the first day back today? Hope everything went great. Did you tell everyone the news? ��

I did test again today...(I know I know) and it looks maybe a touch darker. Hard to tell. At least its still positive, so I will just go with that. Lol But still no symptoms.

I am 15 dpo

15dpo is still quite early days. I first tested on 19dpo. Your beta would probably still be in the low hundreds and the hpts max out in the low thousands, so still have a way to go to darken. I'm glad it looked darker.

School was great. The kids weren't in for the first day and I got loads of work done after all the meetings finished. Everyone was so happy for me, I felt like the most special person... Everyone was hugging me and congratulating me all day.
Today, I get to tell my tutor group. I have been their tutor for 3 years, so they should be quite happy for me. I don't know when I'll tell my other classes... Maybe tell the older ones but wait a bit with the littlies. (I teach ages 11 to 16).

I had some really sad news yesterday. One of my colleagues had IVF a few weeks before me and we were overjoyed to both get bfps. She had her 12 week scan in the summer and the baby's skull had not developed so she had to have a termination. I was devastated for her. She's coping really well and has 7 frozen embryos, so will try again soon.

Have a good day today!

No testing for me for a few days at least.

Glad you had a good day back and felt so special. Having others excited for you makes it just that much more special. It will be fun to tell the kids!

How many weeks are you? Sorry if you already said...I know your due in March. Have you had a gender uktrasound yet?

That is so incredibly sad about your colleague. I cannot imagine and it just hurts my heart when I hear those stories. Hopefully they will get their rainbow baby from the frozen embryos.

My date is in my sig. I'm 12+4 today.
The gender ultrasound is at 20 weeks, but I don't know if we will find out...

The kids were very excited for me today. I loved seeing their reactions.

How are you feeling?
