Julie, Holly - here's some just for you!!!!!
OMG!!!!!!!!! Julie- TWINS!!!!! You know, the thought of twins did cross my mind because your first beta was so high! Congrats for 2 heartbeats!
Holly- Yeah for the BFP! Any updates! Lots of
Sammy- Keeping you in my thoughts! I hope that the septum surgery goes well and that you heal quickly so that you can TTCA soon.

JJ!!!!!!!!! I can't believe it, what wonderful news! I'm so excited and thrilled for you, yayayayayayayayayayayaya!!!!!
Julie--CONGRATS!!! Wow, twins!! I'm so so happy to hear your news. That's great that you saw the heartbeats, too!! Thanks for sharing your news--you'd been on my mind!
AFM--I actually haven't gotten a BFP, just shadows and evaps and stuff. I'm kinda losing hope for this month and looking forward to AF so that this crappy PMS will be over! I know it ain't over 'til it's over, but I have to change my mindset so that I'm not disappointed. AF should be here Friday or Sat at the latest...still have no real idea when I ovulated, but the latest O date has AF coming then. I'm taking a big step and NOT TESTING TOMORROW (I told you guys, so you have to keep my accountable) b/c I can't take all the BFNs.
I think maybe I'm a headcase or something...really don't know where all my nausea was coming from the past few days. It totally felt like pregnancy nausea but it would have been early. Gotta love all the headgames we put ourselves through, huh?

Julie!!! Holy cow!!!!!! Congratulations on TWO heartbeats!!! That's so amazing. tons of sticky vibes!!!
Holly, I'm sorry about the headgames too. I've also been there. I hope you get a clear positive soon, or can at least move on.
OMG!!! OMG!!! Julie-I had to go back to April and couldnt figure it out Twins!!! So so so happy for you-my goodness you must be in shock because it seemed like you really didnt think it would be good news. Well, that's just fantastic news!!
Me- (Lauren)36! Ds-Born 2/14/2009 DN(niece)-10/26/05
Currently separated from DH.
Here is what I've learned from my profession: Life is short and sometimes it really isnt fair but you can live and make the most of it while you have it .
Holly- It's really hard and yes, we do play so many mind games and its difficult to stay positive but hang in there lots of that you will get your BFP soon!
Julie - I was hoping and praying for good news for you - it is so nice to see God answering my prayers two-fold !! I am SO excited to have a twin buddy!!!!!! Wow - not sure when your EDD is but I think this means you are going to be in the 3 under 2 club !? Oh we have so much to talk about! We need a reunion with Sandra in Chicago when you are ready!!
Holly - sending lots of for a real BFP from you soon!!
Hi everyone !
Congrats again on the twinks!
Hope the rest of you lovely ladies are doing well. Much babydust to all.
Julie congratulations! Oh my goodness! I can't imagine the shock especially when you were preparing yourself for less than enthusiastic news. How are you feeling?
Holly I don't think we've "met" but I just wanted to say I'm sorry for the inconclusive tests and all the symptoms. I hope you get something more definitive very soon .
Big hello and babydust to everyone else
Me (40) DH (43)
After 23 cycles, 4 IUIs, 2 and a high risk pregnancy we got our miracle.
Whoo! HOO!!! Julie I can't wait to go back to April and read all the details. What a treat! I am so happy and excited for you. What a great cycle and great great news!
.Holly- First of all, you are NOT a headcase. Some women get lots of symptoms just from the high levels of progesterone in the second half of their cycle. After charting it all for two years, I can tell you that I have had cycles where I experienced nausea before my period and still was BFN or just a chemical. My nausea with my past pregnancy started really early, when my beta was super low, so it's possible that your symptoms are real. Don't know it that helps. Sorry you've been in such limbo. Also, it sounds like your doc did see the dip at the top of your uterus as some point, so that should prove it's bicornuate and not a true septum. Here's a link to a diagram so you can see what the heck I was trying to describe!
Uterine septum vs. bicornuate diagram
AFM: Can't wait to go back to April and read all the news. I finally broke down today at week 7 and contacted my RE. I went for labs this afternoon to try to figure out what the heck is going on. Maybe they will induce a period and we can get a move on!!!
Uh, P.S. Wow. Reading April was even more exciting than I thought. Twins, and heartbeats and EVERYTHING. So so cool
DD expected 1/15
Congrats! Julie on Twins!!
Looking for Holly POAS news? Lots of for a REAL positive soon! Ditto on what Sammy says re: the nausea due to progesterone - so many of us have been duped out bc AF and pg symptoms are so similar in the early stages.
Sammy - thanks for includng the graph - I always wondered the difference so it was very educational! I hope that AF arrives soon so you can get the show on the road !
Hi everyone else !
Thanks everyone. I'm still completely in shock! DH is real excited, I mean REAL excited. I go back and forth between excitement and feeling completely overwhelmed.
Sammy - Did you hear back on your labs yet?
Holly - Any updates?

Julie--that's so cool that your DH is so excited. I can see why you'd feel overwhelmed but you're going to be fine! When is your next u/s or checkup?
Sammy--thank you for the diagram! It makes more sense now. I'm so sorry you're still waiting for your period. That's awful. You're having the surgery sometime after your period shows, right?
AFM--I didn't test Tues or Wed and broke down and tested today with a cheapie $1 test--BFN. I'm assuming my original O date (occurring where it usually does in my cycle) was correct, which puts me at either 10 or 11 dpo today. I usually get my period on 11 or 12 dpo, so I need to get another Vicodin script in case I see it soon. I'm still having abdominal twinges that are like those I got when I was pregnant, but who knows.
Thank you all for reassuring me that I'm not crazy!
