    Age: 34
    Doing this on my own
    TTC Since: September 2011
    Tried several IUIs and AIs, but it was with my first IVF w. ICSI that I got my first BFP with one 5dt.
    EDD: May 31st!
    Symptoms so far: cramps mostly the day after transfer then on and off for a week, now much less often. Tired all the time! A bit bloated, felt a little off today when it came to food, no real nausea, but nothing seemed to settle quite as good as it usually does.

    Hi Raelynn!! :hi:

    Great to see you in here! Congratulations!!!! :happydance:

    I'm also waking up super early every morning but I think it's just the excitement of doing another test!!! :haha:

    I am missing my coke already - need to go buy some caffeine free stuff. Why is it that as soon as you're told you can't something then suddenly it's all you want?!?!! :dohh:

    Lot's of chocolate (although a sneak a peice in every now and then!)
    Diet Coke
    Tea with my white honey
    Drinking with my friends here and there
    Other yummy sugary drinks-I am now drinking water with lemon or hint water...I need more options!!! I read that apple juice is okay as well as oj in small amounts...

    Also, I ate so much last night thinking okay I will def. have gained a lb...I lost a slight amount of weight, I do not understand why I am not gainging!!

    I have lost like 3 pds too Almostthere! It makes me nervous as I am already on the low end of a "normal" BMI. Some girls told me to drink Carnation instant breakfast. Yucko!

    So true Broody - I only want my caffeine tea not my caffeine-free tea.

    Me too! I've always had a super fast metabolism - never been able to put weight on. Hopefully it won't be a problem... Although I do find myself opening my pants button at every available opportunity!!! On Sunday I opened the door to let dh's friend in totally forgetting that my belt and buttons were open!!!!:haha:

    Went to the shop earlier for caffeine free coke but they only do caffeine free diet coke which is full of artificial sweetners so :growlmad:!

    I like your list of foods you'll miss Almost!
    I'm going to miss:
    Mussels and prawns (although prawns are apparently safe enough according to my book so maybe in a few weeks!)
    Coke!
    Eggs benedict with hollandaise sauce
    Goats cheese (I eat so much of this! Gonna see if any of the shops sell pasteurised ones)
    I'm sure I'll discover lots of other stuff as time goes on!

    My line on the frer was slightly fainter this morning. Not worried about it but I did check the box after and discovered that it was out of date. Then I checked my other box of frers and a box of digis and they're all out of date too!!:haha: Bought them when I first started ttc-ing, before I discovered cheapies!!! Went out this afternoon and bought a fresh box for tomor :D

    Ladies,
    I've changed the first page slightly to include all our names and due dates! When we know how many we're having and if they're girls or boys and I'll add that too :D
