Dream- That’s nice, you’re probably right- the date isn’t going to be a big deal, especially being just one day. My first ultrasound on Monday will
Be during one of the most fun events at school. Of course it’s the next to last day too lol oh well. My principal knows exactly what’s going on and doesn’t mind.
You usually o around day 16, right? Do you have your trigger shot at home or will you just get it from your doctors office?

I officially just had my first injection. After a moment of freaking out, I finally let DH jab me.. and I felt nothing good to know. Hopefully I can start doing them for myself at some point but he’s doing great so far lol

Ahhhh TB I'm so excited for you (I have butterflies too )

Yes, the injections for stims are definitely not a big deal - you get yourself worked up and then think "wow, was that it!".

Hope everything works out perfectly in terms of getting your scan done and flying on the day you want to fly. Europe is currently sunny for you!

Dream, lots of excitement for you too!!

Sunny and Amber, hope all is well with you and your kiddos!!

Yea I usually O around CD16-17. I'll get the shot from the clinic once they know when they want me to inject it.

TB - Yay for first injections, ah it's so real now. I couldn't be more excited for you.

CD10 today, I can't decide if I still want to do OPKs this cycle or kinda just let the docs do their thing. If I do take them I usually start at CD11 which is tomorrow...

Silly question: Does the trigger not effect your temp? Will temping still predict O as accurately when you've taken a trigger shot is what I mean... The HCG doesn't raise your temp right? It's the progesterone...

Tb, so glad the first injection went well! I can't believe how fast all of this has gone and you're almost ready to travel. It's so funny to think you'll be walking into the same building as I did a couple months ago.

Dream, the hCG may boost the progesterone which leads to a temp increase but doesn't do anything by itself. I would definitely use OPK's just to make sure you're not ovulating early and miss it. All kinds of exciting stuff happening in our little group!!

Steph, hi!! How have you been?

Amber, thinking of you. Hope your appointment goes well today

Sunny- I know! I can’t thank you enough for sharing your experience. ivf would never have been a real possibility for me otherwise. I have my ekg tomorrow afternoon and I’ll be officially ready to go!

Dream I agree with Sunny!

Amber how did it go today?

Steph- thank you! I can handle sunny how’s everything been going with you?

Hey guys! So much exciting things going on in our group, I love it!!

I hope everything goes well for you both tb and dream!

Sunny- you're 10 weeks already! Only 1 week until your ultrasound. I'm so excited for you!

Sarah- hope you get a nice + OPK in the next few days!

Things went pretty good today. The ultrasound didn't show the spot on the heart but there is a small spot on the stomach lining still. The specialist was not too worried about it though. They said chances of down syndrome based on my blood tests are about 4%. I am getting the cell free DNA done, just waiting on insurance pre-authorization first. They do want to do ultrasounds every 4 weeks just to keep an eye on the stomach in case anything changes, but often it is no big deal. Also they were concerned about marginal cord insertion on my previous ultrasound but said it looks fine now. So overall feeling pretty good about everything. I just had this feeling that everything would be ok! I'm not sure that ultrasounds every month are completely necessary, but I am going to love seeing my sweet boy every month! Oh, and he has turned head down now, so that was neat to find out.

Sorry to write a novel

Amber - that's awesome, such a relief. I felt like everything would be okay too. I didn't want to be insensitive though because your fears and feelings were completely valid. I feel like saying "don't worry it will be fine" is just as annoying as when people say to me "don't worry, it will happen". When the fact is we really don't know. I'm so happy to hear that weight has been lifted from you for the most part now. Scans every 4 weeks will be so much fun. Kind of a little blessing in disguise if you will.

I'm going to take your advice guys and still do my OPKs this cycle. So I'll start this afternoon after work. My next scan is tomorrow. FX these follicles are still growing well.

Happy Friday - Have a great weekend ladies.

Oh I don't think I mentioned we're babysitting my godson all weekend. EEeek, he's about 4.5 months. Wish me luck!

Dream how fun! I’m sure you will do great! I’m excited to hear about your scan tomorrow! Our bodies are so interesting. Keep us updated!

I had a dream I had my scan and they only saw four follicles growing. I was freaking out lol. I already know that will be impossible because I always have many. But in my dream I kept saying “how?!” Lol

That's great news Amber! You must be so relieved. Glad to hear your little boy is doing well

Dream, ahhh that's so cute. Good way to practice too

Tb, hahaha yeah I'm thinking you'll have a bit more than just 4. Dreams can be so weird sometimes. When is your first ultrasound?

Have a great weekend!!
