Catherine,

I just wanted to give a little success story you could share with your friend. The people we bought our house from had been trying, unsuccessfully, for over 8 years to get pregnant and their little (well, actually fairly big) daughter was born about a month after we closed. I beleive they used IVF also.

Hi guys, I just thought that I'd ask you to keep a very close friend of mine in your thoughts and prayers. She is doing IVF, the implantation was yesterday. They have been trying to have a baby for almost 7 years now. You, more than most people I know, will understand how she's feeling right now.

Thanks

Joy,

how funny you specifically mention weight watchers. I have had basically the same attitude! I will rejoin it the second week of April if I have started my period by then. it might be my luck to get pregnant now also...how funny. what really makes me ill is the fact that I had lost all but 4.5 lbs on weight watchers but let myself gain it back this year. ridiculous. i feel extremely guilty about it and dread that my new dr. might bring it up when i finally do get pregnant. i have been beating myself up about it everyday and i am tired of it! i want to be free of my guilt. weight watchers is great but i feel afraid of "failing". oh well, here i come!

so you are currently pregnant after saying that......that is funny

Speaking of weight - (I too started this pregnancy past my birth weight that I had dd at - ugh) - my trick to getting pregnant was to say "if I don't get pregnant this month I am going to start Weight Watcher." Well, I got pregnant, so weight watchers will have to wait.

Good luck and have fun trying!!

Suzanna,

Thank you for the baby dust! Hopefully it will be soon. I am feeling more patient today. On the up side....every month i don't get pregnant I could be losing some weight....who am I kidding? I am embarressed to say I will start this pregnancy heavier than last. At least I think I will...hoping to get pregnant before I lose it all. We will see! haha

I totally understand. With each time we were trying it was awful! I think I could own stock in the pregnancy test market at this point in my life! I was an obsessed maniac to say the least! I want to tell you to relax and have fun... but I know how upsetting those things can be LOL. I know it will happen and maybe it will be this month!!

Sending baby dust you way ~~~~~~
