Krissie my doc said same thing about the exhaustion - that it will be way worse when baby comes. I cannot imagine. I'll find out soon though. I'm very much looking forward to meeting the little guy! I don't have many clothes on hand bc I really don't know what he will like. It's very confusing. Some people say don't get things over the head and stick with the kimono style bodysuits. And some say different things. I guess I'll just have to figure it out slowly. Plus not sure if he will be newborn size or bigger.

Have you decided on the clomid? I think your reasoning makes sense since you were not monitored before. I am hopeful that the birth control cycles will have helped your process and that it's a fresh start w clomid. Ftx.

So glad you get the summer off! You deserve it and so does your little one. I'm sure he will be so happy to have fun with you this summer.

Thanks for the advice on the food. We do need to figure something out and plan as I already can't cook as much bc of the exhaustion.

Angela - been thinking about you. Are there any updates?

Star- my son lived in onesies for the first year so. The best thing about them is if they throw up or spit up on themselves you can just roll them over the shoulders and down instead of up over their head. I found it they were super easy just a pair of the jacket and pants when it was cooler and just go by themselves when it was warmer. That's definitely my plan for if we get pregnant of the second one.

I think I am going to do Clomid next month. The more I thought about it the more I'm pretty sure I want to give this the best shot and getting pregnant because it will likely only have five or six cycles.

Angela- it's great to hear from you. I hope this year you can accomplish all you want before going back to ivf.

Star- oh man you are at the home stretch! I hope you are doing well.

Afm..... I got a bfp yesterday. We weren't even trying but I did know when I ovulated cause my sex drive went through the roof so I did a few opks. After so many failed medicated cycles I cannot believe it. Im wondering if the birth control really was what my body needed to reset. Now this little bean just needs to hold on for the next 8 months.

Krissie - so sorry I missed your post with the amazing news! wow!!!!! Congrats! You must be over the moon. I'm so so happy for you. Truly happy for you. What a way to bring on the summer vacation! seriously. Relax and enjoy. You so greatly deserve this.

Angela - I will be following your story and want you to know that im thinking of you and wishing you well before the start of the next cycles. Always have my fx. I know this journey has been so so difficult. I pray that the next ivf works for you.

Afm - sorry for the late update. I have my bundle of joy. He came into the world on may 25th. 16 days early. I was in the hospital for 10 days. One week prior to being induced. And the two to three weeks prior to that I was in agonizing pain and hardly able to walk. I was admitted to the hospital very early due to extreme and severe swelling. My legs were three times their normal size or more. They were unrecognizable. And when I would get up to try to walk I was practically brought to my knees in horrific pain as the blood rushed to my feet. It was severe pain. The hospital treated me for an infection just in case but my legs never improved and I was in agony. By that point I had been mostly immobile for 3 weeks. So they decided to induce me. I labored for 20 hours and unfortunately the epidural did not work. There were blocks in many places. They tried the epidural again. Still didn't work. They then pumped me via ivf with very strong drugs. Still didn't work. It was awful. And of course they had never really encountered someone who was so resistant to pain meds. I have no idea why that was the case but it was terrifying. Nothing was working. And I wasn't winning the battle. I had hardly progressed in the 20 hours and by the end I couldn't control myself and was letting all my emotion out very loudly. I just couldn't contain the pain with any dignity anymore. They rushed me for an emergency c section.

I could elaborate about what happened afterward. Maybe I will later. It was still more pain. And other things. But the swelling went down pretty quickly after giving birth.

In terms of health both baby and I are fine and I love this little guy more than I can articulate.

Hey Vankiwi! How are you doing?

I'm definitely picking up on the nausea these last few days. And I'm so tired. I'm just so happy I'm off for the summer so I can nap and rest through first tri. It's seriously kicking me and I'm only 5 weeks.
