Hi friends,

I have shamefully not posted myself or any responses for weeks. I am not sure why other than just strange feelings about belonging here more than on Pink. So many need support here (as I did/do) and I just didn't know how to verbalize that support. In many ways, I am scared of the BFP...sounds weird, huh? Some very sad posts on other boards pushed me under my shell. And, the very thing we all dream about, work so hard for began to make me nervous. It's as if by posting something positive here or on Pink would change the path of our journey!! I gave up on superstitions awhile ago - but I guess they are back I am sorry for all those posts I should have written to support you lovely ladies in the past weeks. Know that you are in my heart.

Anyway, I am back. Thought I would post an update here, then return daily as a reader and a responder to others on this path. One of these days I will try to find a way to Pink.

So, DH and I find ourselves at 11 weeks tomorrow. We've been "discharged" from our IVF clinic and are now at a "real" OB. Past cone biopsies have them concerned about incompetent cervix possibility - so we are on every two week ultrasounds. All is measuring and testing fine and DH is over the moon. As am I, in the RARE moments when I am not REALLY REALLY sick with M/S (who called it "morning" sickness??). Hoping the weeks ahead will see that pass. I can deal with the sickness to get through this...just tough working and performing every day...but I am plugging along. Silly me thought all those hormones we took would prepare me for M/S...nope

For those new to this journey, I hope you get to know me as someone who helps support you along the way. For the veterans, thank you so very much for all you did for me (and DH) to carry us to this point. Who knows why one cycle works and others don't. But hope keeps us all alive and you gave that to me. This board is invaluable. I have been outwardly very "tell" to many in my life. But for those of you keeping this process quiet, this board will be your family...trust it and lean on it.

Love you all - see you around. Pray and cross fingers for us as we keep moving forward. Will do the same for all of you. ~ Calm

I'm doing a happy dance here in my chair for you! I love to see the happy stories on this board...it gives me so much hope and the courage to perservere. I'm sensitive to others emotions and I know it is not that way for everyone, but I'm truly overjoyed each time I see a success on here. I lurk on the pink board b/c I like to follow people journeys to motherhood. I'm dissappointed when people announce there bfp's and then disappear. I hope you have a happy and healthy 29 weeks. If you are brave enough to join the pink board I will follow your progress there. Big congrats to you, your dh and your 11 week miracle. (((hugs))). I hope the morning sickness subsides soon! Welcome back!

It's nice to see you back here. I hang out on both boards; maybe in time you will too. Congratulations, and I hope the sickness passes soon.

So glad that this cycle has worked for you. It is hard to accept the great news, when you're used to disappointment. But as I have to tell myself, we only have today, and if we spend today worrying about tomorrow, the joy of today will be lost. Enjoy your pregnancy as much as you can!

Again, congratulations!

Its hard to relax and believe when the miracle finally happens. Try to enjoy as much as you can!

And to know all is going well for you and your little one. I can totally understand the nervousness but try to enjoy every moment of your pregnancy if you can at all because you deserve to enjoy it. Good luck!

Congrats to you possum How exciting. Listen petal don't let what occurred recently on the pink to discourage you from writing there.
We would love to see you on the pink. I saw today there is another lady who is 11 weeks and facing the NT test. Maybe you could hang out with her (and us .
You can be on the pink and on the yellow and indeed the green and offer people support.
