My journey dealing with secondary infertility in this crazy fertile world.

Happy New Year

So much for me responding to the tag. I actually thought that I clicked on "publish post" but apparently, I didn't. So....when I get bored, maybe I will do it again. But for now, I am just too tired.

I have not been MIA. Thanks for those who ~checked in on me~. I was actually at hubby's parents for our Christmas celebration since Sat. We decided to tell them of the BFP, but told them to be cautiously excited. Also, that we were not ready to share our news. Basically we had to tell them due to my new symptom of...morning sickness. Make that all day sickness. Trust me, I am not complaining! Although vomiting several times a day is not enjoyable, I do know it is a "good sign."

So now I wait for my appointment which not until Jan. 14. It seems SOOOO far away! Thanks for the prayers and sticky vibes. I have made it to 6 weeks. 34 more to go!

Hugs and prayers to all as we enter 2008. I hope all of your dreams come true!

So the doctor called with good results, then?

Congratultions on the morning sickness! I hope it remains bearable.

Happy New Year!

I knew you had to go to your hubby's family, but I got a little worried when you never responded with what the doctor said. I am so glad that everything is going okay! I hope the morning sickness subsides in the upcoming days. I know it makes you feel good that you have symptoms present, but yuck! I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. Just think, you'll have a new son/daughter to celebrate with next year!!!!!!

Happy new year to you!

Though the symptoms stink, I'm so glad you're continuing to have solid symptoms. I hope there is some encouragement in the midst of feeling lousy! I hope you had a nice Christmas and I'll pray these next 10 days pass quickly!

Okay lady - I've been waiting patiently for your beta recheck numbers! I've assumed everything is good, but I was waiting for the update you said you'd post! :) :) :)

(oh - and I responded to your comment on my own blog about femara. You said you were taking 10mg daily and it just seemed like so much. That's 4 pills/day. Are you just a really hard stimulator?)

nancy said...

Oh, and I had another questions (you don't have to post this in public at all, just something I've been meaning to ask)

You said you had been diagnosed w/ secondary infertily, yet had only been ttc since Feb. (you got pregnant on your 9th or 10th cycle?) I was wondering what the diagnosis was that deemed you "infertile" so quickly. Maybe it goes back to the amount of femara you had to take for stimulation. Did you have a really high FSH? Or was your doctor just quick to throw around the "IF" label?

Please forgive the question. I'm NOT dismissing the amount of time you had to TTC before you got pregnant. Not at all! I've just had this discussion (you may have read my blogs about it) and it peaks my curiousity when I see a doctor give an early diagnosis of the horrible "I" word. (In my blog about this subject, I totally agree there are situations where a year doesn't have to go by for a healthy person w/out issues to get the diagnosis of "infertile". Things like being not being able to stimulate ovaries even with drugs, loss of a tube, etc. So when I run across someone such as yourself, I want to ask why the Doc did it.) And of course, if this is too personal - you can totally tell me to bugger off! :)

nancy said...

Well that's great news! (answering your comment to me). And thanks for letting me in on your own personal history. I never know if I've asked one too many personal questions. :)

In regards to someone being labeled "infertile" who has a child - I think this is when "infertile" gets confused with "barren". Infertile simple means one isn't fertile. I'm definitely not fertile, but I've managed to pull out a few successes out of these non cooperating organs! ;)

I'm sorry about the nausea, but so glad you are where you are. Hopefully, the 14th will come quickly and you'll have good news then, too.
Hopeful thoughts coming your way...
