My plans so far for when the baby is born is to stay home.  I think that I want to stay home with my kids until they are in school but who knows that may change.  What about you?

I am 10 weeks today so I have about 2 more weeks til I finish my first trimester.  Im excited to be finally done with it and not worry as much.  I am due 8/9.  ONe week after you.  I haven't had to many symptoms other than being tired and wanting to eat all the time.  I am so lucky that I haven't had any morning sickness.  My RE is taking me off the estrogen and progesterone in a couple of weeks and I have an appointment with a regular OBGYN at the end of January.

You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today. Oh my gosh I am so sorry you've been getting sick at night.  That is when mine get's really bad as well, I feel for you!  How exciting that you guys are going to tell everyone, they are all going to be soooo happy and surprised-wish I could be there to see their faces :-)  As for your headache, maybe try some baby aspirin? I'm not sure it will be strong enough to work but it's worth trying maybe.  Western Family has a good one that is orange flavored and it's only I think 81mg, give it a try!  I hope you have a great time telling everyone the news-talk to you soon!

I am soooo excited for the news of twins!!!! Welcome to the twinkie club! I had an feeling you may be preggers with twins based on the bloating you were feeling but didn't want to say anything : ) How wonderful!!!! Good luck and there is a great site for twin resources and forums called www.twinstuff.com. They have great forums for expecting twins, breastfeeding twins, etc.

My due date is May 11, but we are tenatively scheduled for a section around April 15ish, I have a history of pre-term and my Dr. dosen't want mo to go into labor, this will be my third section. I have 2 boys 14, and 9 from a previous marriage. So it's been quite a while for my uterus to heal, but they are still afraid of uterine rupture. 36 weeks seems to be about my limit on how long the baby will stay in! Heck I wish I just had to lose 15 I needed to lose more like 80! My Re didn't think that was contributing to my infertility though b/c I conceived my last son while I was around the same size. My cycles were normal, I just have so much scar tissue from the previous section, it was catching my eggs everymonth so they couldn't be fertilized, ONE finally made it through the tangled web!

Hi Alli!

Yoga pants are awesome, plus, you can wear them after pregnancy too! I still wear all of my sweats, yoga pants and I have a few juicy pants (hoodies don't fit now). I just wear them under my belly : )

The progesterone could make you feel bloated. I was bloated but since I have only been pregnant with IVF, I don't know if it is a typical pregnancy symptom or from the progesterone. Once the baby gets bigger, you will feel less bloated and more just firm baby!

Well I hear you, I've had a couple pair of favorite pants, I call them my wooby pants! It's funny b/c I was heavy when I got PG this time around ( I so don't recomend that) so I'v been really good to eat healthy and be more active, so I'v actually lost weight almost 11 lbs, but my stomach has gotten huge, I mean I was a big girl, but I'm one of those "pear" girls LOL I was so bottom heavy, I never had a big upper gut, good golly that thing is so out there, I keep thinking I know I have gained 10 lbs, but nope just gaining baby! I am almost 5 months and look at least 7! I am also only 5ft tall so I have a short torso, poor baby has no where to go but out! HeHe.

Of course I felt that way, still do at times! LOL I still keep thinking too, that they will tell me oops it's a boy not a girl! My first u/s my RE waited till I was 8 weeks, he wanted to be certain to see a HB, sometimes really early you might not see one and it can alarm you for nothing, so don't be upset if you don't yet :) but I was still in denial, after 5 yrs you just expect to see negative or not pregnant! The craziest part was we did nothing that cycle but monitor, no meds no IUI nothing! we were 1 month b4 our IVF!!! PS. I never got the vomits either! Just nausea, and mainly CONSTIPATION! ARGGGH I think I would have rather puked at times! LOL but hey an uneventful pregnancy is a good thing! Other than the huge belly, and occasional kick~at this point I am symptom free!

Hang in there. It definitely gets better in the 2nd trimester. The worry doesn't really go away, they are just different worries. Also, not sure if you are on any meds, but if you are, once you are done with those it will get better too. Welcome the bloating as a time to wear maternity pants! Only six weeks but nobody will know the difference. Elastic is wonderful : )

First off ~CONGRATULATIONS~ on the pregnancy! It is such a blessing :) We tried for 5 yrs b4 we got lucky it was such a long hard road- so worth it! Time has flown by for me suprisingly, it's unfortunate when you have timed conception b/c you know so early. We are not the lucky ones that find out at like 8 weeks! The holidays have been great to keep me busy! So hopefully Christmas will fly by b4 we know it! :) I have been so lucky to not be sick, so it is wonderful! I started feeling her move at 14 weeks, If this is your first baby you will probly feel somthing around 17 or 18 weeks. I found out at 16 weeks I was having a little girl, which is what I really wanted! I have 2 boys from a previous marriage 14, and 9, so pink is much needed at my house :) Keep me updated with your progress!

Thanks for your note! I am feeling great now that I am mid-way through my second trimester : ) I feel huge though. I just compared pics from now and when I was pregnant with my dd and I am almost as big now as when I was 8-9 months!!! How are you feeling?

I was told that if I get pregnant with ivf then the ovaries will enlarge and the abdominal cavity fills with fluid causing the bloating and that it should go down by 8wks of pregnancy.

The nurse called and said my HCG was 332 which I'm assuming is the beta. I go on monday for my second bloodtest. I'm so excited and hope I continue to get good news and the time goes by. I am feeling good really no side effects besides bloating from OHSS. How are you and when are you due?????

Hi!  Just wanted to say I saw your post and I am so happy for you.  I am doing my first IVF as well and I'm in the 2ww.  Had 2 beautiful embryos transferred on day 5.  I am hopeful reading your post.  I know how excited and shocked you are.  It took us 4 years to finally conceive our daughter.  I had almost given up on being a mommy. Now we are hoping for number two.  I'm truly touched by your story.  So truly happy for you.
