Bed Rest

Feb 22, 2010 @ 11:13 AM – by SEO Admin
I went to the Dr. and she became very concerned because my cervix was shorter than it should be at this point. She has put me on bed rest for a few days and wants me to come back so she can measure again. She said it either is naturally short or it has already started thinning for delivery. She explained that if it has already started shortening, she will perform a cerclage. So, I will go back in a few days with my fingers crossed that everything is okay but for now, I'm on bed rest.

I had an episode of bright red bleeding, something that I never expected. I called my OB immediately and she told me to come to the office. She put me on bed rest for a week. The bleeding subsided after a few hours, but she says that all we can do is cross our fingers.

Another Sono Etc.

Ive had another sonogram and cant believe how fast they are growing. I was also able to finally stop the IM progesterone injections after having to continue an extra two weeks because my level wasnt high enough. It is such a relief that my level finally went up. My husband and I are so excited and feel so fortunate. I would never have imagined when we started this whole process that it would take us almost a year to get to this point, but Im glad we finally made it. It was well worth the effort.

My First Sono

We had our first sonogram and imagine our surprise when Dr. Nackley said we are having twins!!! We knew it was a possibility, but I never imagined we would be that lucky. After getting over the initial shock, we are both very excited.

Repeat Pregnancy Test

After my IVF cycle resulted in a biochemical pregnancy, I didnt think it would ever happen for me. I was surprised when my repeat pregnancy test went up just the way it was supposed to! I am shocked and still dont quite believe it. We are both very excited but dont want to get carried away until my first sonogram next week. I think seeing something will make it seem more real.

My pregnancy test came back positive! My husband and I are both excited, but considering what happened last time, we are very cautious.

Lumps and Bruises

Oct 12, 2009 @ 05:40 PM – by SEO Admin

With the exception of being longer than an IVF cycle, this FET cycle has been so much easier that I can hardly believe it. My transfer was the same as the IVF cycle. I have continued the progesterone injections with a few incidents. The nurse recommended that after the injection I move around for about 20 minutes. Twice I have not followed this advice and lived to regret it. When I dont move around, I get a hard lump that feels very sore and lasts for 4-5 days. The nurse recommended a heating pad which I have been using every night and it has really helped, even when I stay active after the injection. I have also had a few that have bled and created dark bruises. They dont hurt, but look quite garish. I decided to be brave one night and try injecting into my thigh. It wasnt as bad as I thought it would be and has given me two more injection sites to rotate. And a few times, some of the progesterone has leaked out after the injection. The nurse has assured me this is normal. My

FET and IM Progesterone

Oct 1, 2009 @ 09:01 PM – by SEO Admin
My husband and I met with Dr. Nackley after our biochemical pregnancy and decided to proceed with an FET. I was surprised to learn that an FET calender is 1.5 months. I thought it would be the same as an IVF cycle, about 3 weeks. I have been on Lupron and Estrace and it's been the same as it was with my IVF cycle. I have a huge needle phobia and have been counting the days until I needed to start IM progesterone. Last night was my first progesterone injection. I expected excruciating pain. I followed the online instruction video and the injection was no worse than any others. The progesterone stings a little, but not as bad as I thought it would. The nurse recommended that after I give myself the injection, I move around for about 20 minutes to help the oil disperse through the muscle. The injection site feels a little bruised, but I've had no other reaction. I never thought I would be able to do something like this. Maybe it's beginners luck, but I feel very optimistic.
