All: Up this morning with small cramping and chills :-( temp still up only up .1 from yesterdays so 98.2 I am only 9dpo though and comparing to my other cycle my temps seems to stay up until around 11 or 12dpo then it dips if af is coming....I could not resist on getting my progesterone drawn yesterday again so I will have the results sometime today just to see if it has taken a dip or not. Last month it went from 18.? to 4.? in 3 days....this month (three days ago) it was 22.4 so we will see I will post when I hear the info have a blessed day!

I was on lupron and I had hot flashes and gained 20lbs in 3 months... I hated that shot, and I was on it to help with my endo, and my endo still continued to grow.

All- I did have a cyst when I went into the ER they did nothing for me. No I'm on femara last night was my last dose, tomorrow will be day 10, and I have an ultrasound to see how things are going. I had one last Tuesday and I have 4 follicles on the left and 6 on the right... I'm hoping this is my month! But i'm not going to get to excited since last month I had a cyst and had all of the signs for pregnancy. Its just so so confusing. I saw my bestfriend last night whose 3 months a long and she has a beautiful baby bump... I just really want to be able to experience it, but everytime I try and look into my future I just don't see kids in it. My husband thinks I'm crazy, but with all of the unused protection in previous years I never once got pregnant. Who knows, We're gonna continue to work on it.

I am on CD 13 now. I don't think this is my month = (

TMI but when I wipe the toilet paper is completely clear but when I try and check my cervix I get brownish reddish spotting. I'm assuming AF is right around the corner = (

My temp is still high at 98.1 so when is it supposed to drop if AF is coming?

I wouldn't go by that - I had brownish-reddish spotting, and I was pregnant.  I would wait for your bw, when is it by the way?

The first one is the most difficult, not because it hurts, it really doesn't, but just the idea of it.  By the end, I was giving them to myslef, something I never thought I would be able to do.  Two pieces of advice - put ice (or a bag of frozen peas or meat) for about 15-20 minutes on the injection site to numb it, it helps a lot.  Also, whether it's you or someone else administering the shot, make sure you jab it quickly.  Just think of the ultimate goal, you can do it.

bfromthed- thank you so much for the well wishes. I will be having my transfer tomorrow morning. Transfering two embies and best of all it will be a day 5 transfer:-)
So sorry to hear about AF, nothing wrong with taking a break for the holidays, TTC is so stressful and expensive!

babyboom- for me the subcutaneous injections (given in thigh or abdomen) are not very painful. It feels like a pinch or maybe I have just gotten use to them...LOL.., but, the intra-muscular injections (given in the buttoks) is a little painful. You have to just look forward to the outcome and just do it:-)...good luck

AmyG89- Sending lots of sticky baby dust to you! Have you taken an HPT?

bfromthed & babyboom- thank you both for the well wishes.

I did my transfer on Sat, Nov 7th instead. The embryologist advised on a day 6 transfer because the embies were dividing so well. Never really read about a day 6 transfer but I believe the embies have a better chance of attaching. Was on bed rest for 24 hours and not doing much for the next couple of days. I am having a little cramping but, that is normal after a transfer. Well ladies, I am officially in the dreaded TTW period. Blood test is due on Nov. 19 but rest assure that I will be doing a HPT in about 5-7 days...I just can't help myself, I have to do it...LOL!!

Good luck to everyone and tons of sticky baby dust to us all:-)

Mybabypooh - Good luck to you!  I will be praying they stick.

bfromthed - I'm sorry to hear about AF.  This will be your month. :)

We are still waiting on the results of hubby's CF test before we know how to proceed.  Taking this month off has been kind of nice, but I really hope we don't have to take another one off.  We are supposed to hear by Thursday.  This is the one time we've been praying for a negative test result. :)

I went to a baby shower yesterday.  It was very hard. I hope we all get happy endings soon.

thank you so much for answering all of the questions i had about IVF meds. However, i was wondering if anyone is so stressed out over this whole process. I feel like my anxiety is at an all time high and I have been having stomach cramps daily due to stress. My dh and I decided that we are going to hold off on IVF until after the new year because I physically cannot take all the stress. I don't know if I just haven't dealt with it all or if I am just that nervous. Anyone have any suggestions?????
Blank
1057195 tn?1289366929
Sometimes we need a break because TTC is so emotionally draining. There is nothing wrong with taking a break and starting again when you are not so stressed out.
I took a break for over a year before, not that I am suggesting such a long break, it is whatever work for you. Good luck:-)

Hi Everybody, How are you all doing. Im looking for cycle buddies...

I am young, Im 19 and for some desperate reason i am TTC. I really dont know why but i just really want to. All of my very close friends are pregnant or have kids younger than 2, every female i know (LITERALLY) is either pregnant or have a new born, and i have 5 God kids under the age of 3. SO i am SURROUNDED by babies.

Before Septemember, i wasnt thinking of having kids but around Oct. 7th i started having all the preg symptoms. I stopped taking my bcp and started taking prenatal pills. Then my period came but it was only for 3 days and it was mostly spotting and semi heavy which is odd for me because i always have HEAVY periods that last for 6 days. I went to the doc on Oct. 28th and they said my blood test was neg. I was in denial for a week because i never had those symptoms before and i know someone who still eneded up being preg after a negative blood test. But anyways, since i got the negative test i have been really desperate to concieve (conceive) and i do not know why.I guess because i got used to the thought of being pregnant and talking to my friends about it made me excited.I think about being pregnant all the time, i had atleast 5 weird dreams about it in the last month, and i am constantly checking my CM to see if im ovulating. My friends dont really understand what im going through because none of their pregnancies were planned and they were 18 and younger when they got pregnant. Im on CD14.

Im just looking for avice, support, or someone that can relate to me!!!! THANKS SOOO MUCH.

Hello,

I have just received my ivf medication in a massive box. As I opened it I found soooo many little boxes and lots of "needles". I wasnt sure what to expect but I have to admit the amout scared me a little.. what a wimp hey :-))) I am not too sure which medication should be in a fridge or not so I put them all in there. Any idea pleaaaseee....
My partner is away for few days so feeling a bit down today...Nobody knows that we are doing ivf so not too many people I can talk to. It all happening so fast ...I just hope and pray it will work...

Amanda 853 - Hi  I completly understand what are you going through everybody around me is pregnant or with little ones. I was like you checking all the time for pregnancy symptoms, but nothing happend for 2 years..But hopefully now it will work for us..
Dont worry it will work out for you!!! Keep positive and keep trying!! Lots of luck

Hi ladies, it seem like no one hardly post on this forum anymore.....

bfromthed- good luck tomorrow.. I pray thing work out for the best. Please keep me posted.

As for me, I am 8dpt today. This morning I tested w/a $ store HPT and got a very faint positive. I posted the pics. I am not getting too excited as of yet because first, it is a dollar store HPT and second, the line is very faint. I have my blood test on Thursday Nov 19. Today I am going to buy a First Response HPT and test in the morning, if that is positive then I might start getting excited.

Take care everyone...sending tons and tons of sticky baby dust to us all!!!

1057195 tn?1289366929
I decided not to spend $16 on a First Response and just wait till Thursday for my blood test. I might test w/another $ store HPT before then. Good Luck and please keep me posted on your results.

bfromthed - How did the u/s go yesterday?

Mybabypooh &  Wendy1971 - Good luck to you both!  I don't know how you're going to wait till the blood test.  I would be testing everyday, but then I'm not patient at all. :)

We were supposed to find out about hubby's CF test Thursday.  He called on Fri when we didn't hear anything and they said he would find out on Dec 2.  I was so upset.  That will be 6 weeks of sitting out while waiting for the results.  I hope he is negative so it's not another 6 weeks for me to test.  On a good note, my SIL got the results of her amnio and their baby on the way doesn't have CF.  My niece is out of the hopsital and doing really good right now.  They think her CF may be milder.

I'm 11 days past ovulation, and have been having cramping on and off with lower back pain since Nov 10th. I went in for an ultrasound friday the 13th and they said every thing was looking good and that it looks to be a really really good month for me but that's all they would tell me. Over the weekend I had some cramping that would make me dizzy and I'd have to sit down. Its still happening I have been home from work now for two days and have a cold with a slight fever, and it only seems to be getting worse, I'm taking tylenol doesnt seem to help. I'm worried, what do implantation cramps feel like? I'm also so very tired, and it feels like little bubbles in my lower stomach area. I have pain on both sides of my ovaries. I have taken 2 pregnancy tests over the weekend and both were negative. I have an appointment on thursday to get checked out to see what the problem is, but any advice would be greatly appreciated.

aw thanks girls for the lovely messages of support. prayingforpatience im reading back on the posts. im so sorry to hear about your hubbys results. will you have to take the test now also, its so much to have to go through,,mybabypooh how did your bloodtest go.. goodnews i hope.. my last cycle they transfared 2 blasts on day 5. thats the most the can transfare here in ireland. they both stuck. my miscarrage (miscarriage) was a very complicated one, i went for a scan at 7 weeks and they couldnt see anything in either of the sacs. they did beta tests and my levels were as they should be so they braught me back in at 9 weeks. the same thing again but the sacs seemed to be growing to normal size and betas were right again. they left me till i was nearly 13 weeks before they decieded to do a DNC. i had not even had any blood or spotting.hope im not scareing anyone, docs said it was very unusial that that should happen that when the mind wants something so bad the body just wont let go itself. that was back in may. so dhats why this time around i am soooooo nervous. they transfared 2 again this time and the doc said they are of very good quality so fingers and toes crossed,. i have PCOS and we were trying for 3 years before we decieded to go for ivf.. hope you ladies are doing well ..

Hi there,

I will also be testing on 12.01.09  This is my first and only try with IVF. When was your E/T? Mine was on 11.19.09 and I had 4 embies transferred. I'm in my mid 30's. This 2ww was going by pretty fast, but now it seems time is gradually slowing down. I want it to be Tuesday already. I haven't had major symptoms and those I have felt, I contribute it to Progesterone. I will not be POAS, pluse DH doesn't want me to do that either. I'm with him and will tough it out 'til beta day.

Millie - I'm waiting on the doctor's office to schedule the test.  They have to get pre-approval from insurance. It is such a slow moving process.  The DR said we could go ahead and keep trying while we wait if I wanted to, but that just seems to irresponsible to me.  Hopefully, won't have to wait to much longer.  It's very frustrating.

Happy New Year to everyone!!  I hope your new year is filled with lots of good health, happiness and fulfilled dreams and wishes.  I don't post much but often come on to see how everyone is doing.

As for me, I am on the tail-end of my pregancy - currently 37 weeks.  We are so ready and looking forward to meeting our little girl who is supposed to arrive on January 25th, but my doctor thinks will be early.   Even though there were many bumps along the road during the pregnancy and I was quite sick with morning sickness for my first 20 weeks, I will definitly miss this chapter of my journey.  I will post after she is born with details and photos.

I'll be praying your time off does the trick.  Sometimes we all need a little break for our mental and physical health.

I should find out about my CF test next week.  It's been such a long wait.  We've been dealing with another health issue this last month so I don't know if we'll be able to start trying if we get good results or not.  I have to believe it will happen if it's meant to.  It's just hard to wait and see what is in store for us.

Keep the faith & hope you have a very happy 2010!

millie086 - good luck next week.  The worrying never stops. :)

I got good news/bad news today.  Good news is that I'm not a CF carrier so we can start trying once again!!!  Bad news is that I have a cyst the size of a softball on my left ovary so it will be an unmedicated cycle.  I'm just really happy that we can try again after a 3 month break.  I also think I'm in a better place emotionally to handle the ups and downs again.  I didn't leave the doctor's office in tears so that has to be a good sign, right? :)

Am new to this forum. Here is my story. TTC since 3 years. Consulted RE since last 8 months. We have a male factor. First IUI had 4 good follies, DH sample post wash was good, but IUI failed. Had a cyst, so next cycle was canceled. A baseline u/s showd one more cyst so cycle canceled. The two rest cycles made my cycles regular. IUI#2, everything looked good, but failed. Now am 17dpiui. A hpt on 14dpiui came back bfn. The RE wont even do a b/w until 3-4 days after my expected period which is on 9th. Am scared to take a test again. I have no symptoms at all, except for the cramps here and there.

hoping4mybaby - Welcome & good luck to you.  I will pray you get good news.

all - So I had a cyst this cycle and couldn't do meds, but we were thinking about doing an IUI anyway.  So RE wanted me to test for LH surge and then come in if we wanted to do it.  We were on the fence, but I never got a LH surge so it was decided for us.  I figured I didn't ovulate this cycle and have been waiting for AF to begin again.  I am 2 days late, but just figured it was the messed up cycle.  Decided to test this morning just for the heck of it and got a BFP.  The second line was light, but there.  Bought two more tests on the way to work and just tried to take another, but couldn't go.  I'm dying here & drinking as much as I can.  I hope it wasn't a false positive.  Also, trying not to get too exicted becuase I've had a m/c before and was devasted.  I really need patience today. :)

977943 tn?1302258620
So I was finally able to test again with a digital test and got a "pregnant".  Going in for b/w this afternoon and on Wednesday.  Trying so hard not to get excited.  Please say a prayer that my numbers are good.

Congratulations!! Will pray for you that your numbers come out great.

Well, for me...AF showed up today :( Have an appointment with RE on Friday to proceed with next cycle.
One thing I have observed with me is that, irrespective of when I ovulate, AF shows up like a clock. This cycle I have ovulated on CD 11 and it is 21dpiui when AF showed up.

But am still hanging in here with the lovely support of all you ladies and looking forward to the next cycle. Hoping that this cycle it will work out!

Hoping:  It's a long road, but the girls on here are very supportive.  Good luck and sending you lots of SSBD too :)

bfromthed:  I am always checking in on you and praying that soon you will get another miracle.  I am praying that when you start again, this time it will be a VERY STICKY one.  Praying and wishing you all the best.  You and your dh truely deserve it.  Just out of curiousity, have you looked into adoption?  After all my treatments, and 2 miscarriages, I couldn't handle it anymore.  We came to the point where we just wanted to be parents, whether the babies were biological or not.  Just when we had given up, a birthmom gave us a call.  Now we are parents of twin newborn girls.  God works in mysterious ways.  Remember, I am here when you need me.  I don't post all the time, but I am ALWAYS checking in.    Take care, and I hope you heart can find some peace within yourself to keep moving on, no matter what direction you choose.

mwhitcomb - Congrats on your two baby girls!  That is wonderful.  I was looking at adoption websites on Saturday to see what our options were.

So my beta is at 76 and progesterone came in at 15.6 so I will be starting progesterone pills.  Not sure what to make of the beta.  I guess I will know more on Thursday after my bloodwork tomorrow.  Keeping my fingers crossed.
Blank
977943 tn?1302258620
Got my results from my second blood test.  My beta is at 144 (not quite double) and progesterone went up to 33.8.  I will be doing more bloodwork tomorrow.  I'm not sure if I should be happy that they went up or concerned that the beta is low and didn't quite double.  It's funny - you stress so much about getting pregnant and then stress about it being viable.  I really need some patience.
Blank
977943 tn?1302258620
I'm not sure if anyone else is out here anymore, but I got the results of my last bloodtest.   Beta came in at 257.  It went up, but still didn't double.  I'm trying to be positive, but it's hard.  I go in for an early ultrasound next Tues.  It will be a very long wait.

hi,
have been reading the posts on this forum.

Found a lot of experiences shared here to be of great value.

I went through my very first IUI cycle on Feb 13. I am 3dpiui. Have been experiencing wetness and lower back pain. My follicles were great but the endo. thickness was just 6.1mm. Am not sure that is good enough for pregnancy.

hoping4mybaby - Thanks so much.  I'm trying to just remain positive and not think about it every single second of the day, but it's so hard. I feel more pregnant now, but it's hard to tell if they are real symptoms or just side effects of the progesterone that I'm taking.

So I guess no cysts this cycle for you?  That is great.  They wreak so much havoc on fertility treatments.  Let us know how your scan goes.

I had some spotting late in the night on 5dpiui and then on 6dpiui. I called up RE and was told that "its normal, sometime it happens, etc".

But still am worried, never had this before and this is my 4th iui.

I don't know how you're patient enough to wait. :)   I would go ahead and test with it being that far from your iui.

The wait is killing me, but I do not want to get disappointed. I had a similar problem with my first iui and got af on 19dpiui and the delay was because of a cyst.
This time I had two follies, one was mature and another was very small at 13 at the time of iui. Am hoping the other follie did not grow over time and became a cyst release some hormones.
Anyway I will get to know tomm. I will update.

Thanks for listening to me. I feel so good after having joined this forum.

Can anyoneone answer the following for me.

I am 9dpt after 5dt (2 blastos 1 morula).

Is it better to do a HCG beta on day 10 pt or day 12 pt?.

I see that some women dont get high levels of HCG on day 10 beta test even after transfering day 5 blastos not day 3 embies.

In reality then day 10 would be 16 days after egg retrieval
                     day 12 would be 18 days after egg

Any advice would be much appreciated. I am so anxious.

Some women get good levels SOOOOOOOOOOOOO early.....

Did a HPT this morning with a -ve response. It was a First Response test.

Have no "Monthly Witch" signs yet and should have seen them last night/today.

Please GOD help stay sane...

Any advice is appreciated.

Lots of sticky vibes for you all.....

Wish I could help, but I haven't gone through in vitro yet.  Good luck to you.

AF arrived today, just 4 weeks after m/c.  I'm glad we don't have to wait any longer to start this crazy cycle again.  Go in for cyst check on Monday & have appointment with RE on Wednesday to go over test results for recurrent miscarriage.  Hopefully, everything will look good and we can do Femara and IUI this cycle.

bfromthed - I am so glad to see you back.  I've been missing you.  My RE only asked us to wait one cycle.  I wonder why.

All - Had my ultrasound yesterday and for the first time since last August - no cysts!!!  Yeah!  I started Femara yesterday and will take on CD3-7.  I hope that means our appointment tomorrow to go over test results for recurrent m/c will be good.  I will go in for u/s to see follies next Monday and then, hopefully, IUI to follow a day or two later.  

I'm praying that we'll get a BFP again soon as will all.

Got tests results today.  Hubby's chromosomes are fine.  I have two copies of a gene mutation that causes my body to not efficiently metabolize folic acid.  So I'm starting on another folic acid supplement in addition to my prenatal vitamin.  Took more blood today to see if I'm at risk for blood clots due to this mutation.  If so, it could be as simple as taking aspirin.  I really hope it's something as simple as folic acid and aspirin.  Still on schedule for IUI next week.

Its good to know the problem than being in confusion as to whats wrong.
Hope that folic acid supp and asprin alone will solve your problem. Take care.

I will be going for first u/s on Monday and feeling nervous now. I its almost 5 weeks after iui and I don't have any symptoms of pregnancy except for some sore bbs sometimes and tiredness. I don't know if tiredness is because of my work or otherwise.

hoping4mybaby - Your beta was really good so you probably don't have anything to worry about, even though we all do anyway. :)  When I was pregnant with my son, those were the only symptoms I ever had.  I never got morning sickness or had any of the other pregnancy symptoms.  Everyone is different so don't gauge lack of general symptoms as a problem.  The time for concern is if you are having symptoms and they suddenly stop.  That is what happened with my last m/c.

I'll be sending good thoughts your way on Monday. I am having an u/s then too to see if my follies are good.

bfromthed - Hope AF arrives soon.  I'm sure you're anxious to get started again.  I hope your time off did your body and mind good.

prayingforpatience -  Thanks for your re-assuring words. How did your follies scan go.

The u/s went well. They did a transvaginal u/s. The little bean in fine! saw the heart beat, it was a lovely experience.

That is wonderful!  I've been wondering how it went.  So glad you saw the heartbeat.  It is amazing isn't it.

My u/s went well. It looks like I'm only going to have 1 mature enough folly though.  It's only at 15.5 so we're waiting a couple more days for it to grow.  I'm doing the HCG injection tomorrow morning & IUI on Thursday afternoon.  Didn't get my other tests results back yet.  Fingers crossed this will be the cycle.

Had IUI yesterday so officially in 2ww.  Hubby's number were great so hope just 1 finds its way! Starting on prometrium again tonight - not really looking forward to that.  Test results still not in yet.

Where is everyone?  It's gotten way too quite on here.

Tested this morning & got a BFN. :(  Hoping AF arrives soon so we can try again.  Meet with RE next week to go over my last bloodwork.

Hope to hear from you guys soon.

Don't loose heart over BFN...its not over until AF shows up. Do you remember I waited for 3 weeks!! and went straight for b/w and hpt at RE's office, even though I always had the feeling that AF might show up anytime.
I think for some of us, BFP wont show up early on.

Sending best wishes your way....

977943 tn?1302258620
Thanks for the encouraging words.  It would be so nice to have a baby by year end.  Still no AF.  Took another test this morning & got a BFN.  I'm never late so I don't know what's going on.  Hopefully, I'll know for sure either way soon.  I'm trying not to get too down.  We'll just try again & pray for the best.

I guess its only a few of us on this forum where did everybody go.? I had a + opk todya as it is my bday too! I have not been checking temps I felt something yesterday and this morning so I checked just to see. We covered our bases this am before I even tested. Re does not want us to ttc until next month but if it happens naturally then that is good too.
Blank
977943 tn?1302258620
bfromthed - Hope you had a wonderful birthday & your wish comes true this month!

ALL - AF arrived this morning so back on the roller coaster.  Meeting with RE on Thurs for test results & see what the plan is.  Hubby & I have decided this will be the last month at the RE.  Insurance doesn't cover it & its all getting too expensive as you all know. We'll keep trying on our own though.  We got pg that way in January.  Hopefully, it won't matter anyway. :)

Cyst check - one small cyst on each side but still get to do Femara & IUI this cycle.  Beginning 5mg today on CD4 and taking through CD8.  Follie check next Friday with IUI on Sat. or Mon.

Test results are back in.  I do have the other gene mutation doctor was concerned about so will start taking a low dose aspirin everyday.  I will need to take both the folic acid supplement & aspirin from now on, regardless of trying or pregnancy.  I'm glad the RE suggested testing since I was at risk for blood clots and didn't even know it.

Am in my 12th week of pregnancy. Had a little spotting today. Is this normal.
I have an u/s scheduled on Thursday. Should I wait for that long if this spots or does not worsen or should I hit the panic button now. I have no other problem.
Blank
977943 tn?1302258620
If its bright red blood, go ahead and call to be on the safe side.  If not and no other symptoms like cramping and you are still feeling pregnant, you could wait and see if it gets worse.  Although for peace of mind, I would probably call anyone.  Praying that it is just the normal spotting that can happen during pregnancy.

Scheduled for an IUI tomorrow.  Two good follicles.
Blank
977943 tn?1302258620
I am praying that everything is okay with you.

All - IUI today.  Hubby's numbers were great.  Hoping this is it.

Avatar f tn
Wish you all the best for your IUI. Hope this cycle will work for you. You are in my daily prayers.

Well, for me the u/s got preponed from Thursday to Tuesday. Spotting has stopped, it was just a speck usually in evenings. But have started feeling very gassy and some indigestion.
Will update after my u/s tomm.

Good luck Beatrice.  We can definitely use some good news.  

Hoping4mybaby - Praying for you.  Please let us know how the u/s turns out.  Sounds like there shouldn't be much to worry about.

Any problem with spotting was ruled out with u/s, but..........I have another problem now.
Doctor said the baby is small for 12 weeks GA, growth is lagging by 1 week and 1 day. CRL measures 40mm where as it should have been between 50 and 60 mm by now. I have a repeat scan again on Monday to monitor progress. But all there observations of the baby were fine. I don't know what to make of this now, am really worried. I cried that day when doc said that, felt that I am not taking good care either of myself or of the unborn...doc kept saying baby is fine but small, lets monitor next week, nothing more than that..
Blank
977943 tn?1302258620
Let's concentrate on the good news - the baby is fine!!!  I will keep praying that everything will look good next week.  Try not to worry too much even though its hard. I'm sure it's not anthing you've done so don't beat yourself up - that won't help you or your little one.  Just relax, eat well, get plenty of rest and stay positive.  Praying & praying!

" If you're waiting for answered prayer or the fulfillment of one of His promises, don't give up.If you think He has forgotten you, think again. When the fullness of time is right for you.He'll show up-and you'll be amazed by His brilliant timing!"

Im not against the medical treatment just to conceived..bec i myself  experience it..but based on my own experienced whose persistently trying for almost 8yrs..ive realized that whatever the effort we give into it..if its not yet the time ..it will not be given to us..most of the time when we ask for an apple..God gave us an orange..what i mean is that..if its not yet the time dont push it too badly..just give ur best and God will take good care of the rest.

Most of us in this forum wants to have our own biological babies..but most of us i(ncluding me) still gets negative all the time..and its really bad to feel that kind of dissapointment...in my case..i kept on praying what really God wants me to do..?what is the real plan He has instore for me and my dear husband..and God really answered our prayer..

Last april 12, a healthy baby girl was born and she was given to us by a friend...its really amazing when God shows his blessing isnt't it..on the least day that were expecting it..God surprised us!..with this bouncing,healthy and beautiful baby girl..that we have prayed for 7yrs/9mos to be exact..at last she's home now! we named her Bettina Noriel (me as beth and Noel as my husband)..

And now our home was always filled with joy and laughter..she's 2mos.and 10 days..im happy to share that..with God all things are possible..even though we're  not her biological parents ..but deep in our hearts..God really planeed and brought this baby to us..for us not only to be complete as a family but  to give endless joy in our hearts,..anyway mother hood is beyond giving birth..its the day-to-day journey..taking care of Bettina is priceless..!

God really works in ways we cannot see..He always make a way..when there seems to be no way!And if someday i will be pregnant..its really a bonus to us!

Thanks be to God!
