futuremrssquiggs:  Awesome betas! Congratulations!! I pray this is your sticky 🙂

mrsm42712:  cricket2082:  Congrats ladies! The beginning is SO hard. Praying you both get betas and progesterone that comes back great.

mrsm42712:  As far as the day to check progesterone I would say the first draw. That way, if it is low they can supplement you. Good luck.

futuremrssquiggs:  woohoo!!!! Hope your bean is it in for the long haul!

So yesterday my coworker who didn’t even pretend to sip her giant beer a few weeks ago finally announced her pregnancy at lunch. Of course everyone went ape shit. Even knowing it was coming still stung. I had to take quite a few deep breaths to make through lunch without crying in front of everyone but I did it! I actually told her about me starting IVF last week and she was really supportive. Another coworker also just told me she’s doing an IUI next week so we’ve been bonding over our mutual struggle. Anywho, hoping AF shows shortly so I can go in for baseline BW and US and get this party started!

Kabatchy2be:  I’m sorry your lunch was so hard. It’s awful when you have to pretend to be happy when your dying a little inside. Well done on keeping it together, it shows how strong you are. It must be nice to find someone to bond with over your mutual struggles. Hopefully you both get to have the announcement at lunch soon!!

Kabatchy2be:  I’m sorry lunch was rough. Mad props to you for keeping it together. I know these feels all too well! Its wonderful that you and your other coworker and bond through your struggles.  Sometimes it’s just nice to know you’re not alone. Wishing you the best of luck!! 

AFM- I got my first betas back, 39. I was hoping for higher but the nurse didnt sound concerned. She said I’m 3 maybe 4 weeks. I go back Monday. I hope they double. Mine never doubled with my previous MC. This part is so hard… I know I’ll survive if I have another MC, but I just hope so badly that this is my sticky baby.

AFM, I had yet another blowout with my sister. This time is was because I don’t ask her how she is doing enough. I don’t check in with her and her pregnancy and my niece. Oh for the love of everything holy. ….. I even tried being the bigger person and apologized. It’s hard for me to ask about a pregnancy in general, let alone one that is going perfectly fine. It’s over now and we’re okay but it was really tough. I hate when people are mad at me. And of course, her pregnancy is going well, lots of MS, and headaches, but whatever. I’d love that right now… Sigh. I’m supposed to take gender reveal pics for a friend this weekend, but due to the snow, it might be canceled. So many difficult things. I’m trying to grow a thicker skin. I also asked my boss about a promotion/raise today. She seemed okay with it but has to talk to her supervisor and the VP of the company to see what kind of promotion and what they could do for me. It could take weeks, or just fizzle out and nothing comes of it. We’ll see. I have to work until I can be a Stay-At-Home Mom. I want more money that i can spend on my kids one day. Thats where my hope comes from. Being able to one day buy my rainbow baby stuff from money I made during this time. That’s also Grady’s doing. He’s helping his siblings by making me work haha.

Congratulations to the surprise bfps, great betas, and ivf approval!!!  

I was taking a break for a few days since idk what is going on with my body.  I’m currently on cd 40, 4 days late with a bfn yesterday and no sign of af coming. 

I had to check back in to share that my sisters dream pregnancy (honeymoon. baby on the first try, 0 health concerns, not so much as any morning sickness) came to a close today, as to no surprise my nephew arrived on his due date, with a relatively  quick labor. 

I’m so happy for her, and happy that she was so fortunate.  I’m just really struggling today considering that we started trying  at the same time, and I’m here struggling having gone through two loses. I’ve excepted that life isn’t fair, but God it just seems cruel

FreckledFox:  omg I didnt even see that you had written this whIle I was venting about my sister.(trying to do my work harassment training at the same time)  It looks like you can definitely relate. Although my sister has been very sympathetic. We were both so looking forward to being pregnant together. It’s so hard having someone so close to you being where you want to be and not having it change relationship

jessc27:  FreckledFox:  Got my first blood test numbers back today hcg level was 73.Progesterone level was excellent. Hopefully these numbers are good period was surposed to start tomorrow. I go back tomorrow mourning to test again. Praying the numbers increase. Kinda relieved a little bit with my MC my levels were extremely low as in 9. I also poas simply because I have seen nothing but faint positives …it was a clear positive today! I want to be excited but I know thing could still go wrong so trying not to get too excited yet.

mrsm42712:  Did you get your first betas? I’m sure it’s fine if you go Monday!

Kabatchy2be:  someone on FB posted yesterday that they were pregnant, and it still stung. We have all been through the ringer. It’s exhausting being disappointed. I am so glad you were able to find an IRL friend to talk TTC with. I fear that I will bore ppl or make them uncomfortable, so I try not to mention it in my personal life. I hate it.

FreckledFox:  I have two sisters, so I know it’s hard to be truly mad at them….so I am mad at your sister for you! I understand she is hormonal and pregnant, but she needs to put herself in your shoes, especially as her sister! Were you two close prior to her pregnancy?…..good for you for asking for a raise! Love that!

clairykoo:  Congratulations on becoming an aunt. I love my niece more than anything…but I am so glad my sister was done having kids before I went through this journey. I would have been a bitter b*tch and acted like a child I am sure if she had a perfect pregnancy. 

 

I am done with betas for a week. Next Thursday I will have bloodwork and an ultrasound!  I am a nut, and bought the Clearblue Weeks Estimator tests so I will hopefully see progression. I am trying to repeat to myself “today I am pregnant, today I am thankful” over and over as a mantra. I am pretty crampy, and sleeping like shit. I can’t tell if it’s nerves, or what. I am nervous I don’t have many symptoms. I can remember last time how I was feeling tired and my boobs hurt and right at 5.5 weeks, that changed. Now the signs haven’t started…

FreckledFox:  congrats on getting the balls up to ask for a raise!! That takes amazing courage. So sorry about your sister. It’s kind of like wedding planning, no one is as excited about your pregnancy as you (except maybe your mum). She should understand the struggles you have gone through and continue to go through! Although I know it’s hard to understand when you have never been through it! 

clairykoo: congrats on becoming an Aunty! it is a great role being an Aunty! I’m so sorry about the BFN! Nothing ever prepares you for a bfn. Something strange is going on with my cycle too!  

MissParrot:  73! What a fantastic number!!!! I just know it will double. In fact, I’m guessing it will be at 201! Yay for the clear positive. Everything is going in the right direction for you!!
