Alix- It's kinda funny how a name comes to be. I'm glad you still got to use it and your cousin went with another name. Can't wait to see some belly pics. Fun fun!
Christine- Oh wow, that is quite the list of stuff going on for you right now. I can see how you'd feel overwhelmed. I'm sorry to hear that your grandma passed on. Jordyn is such a cutie pie! 4 months feels like it has gone by really fast.
AFM- Thursday is my SIS and DH's SA. Then next Wednesday is our supression check. Things are going to start geting pretty IVF busy next week it seems. Looking forward to it. I have a feeling that it's going to go by quickly at the beginning and drag like crazy after the transfer. Just hoping everything goes according to plan.

Alix- I sure hope it works, too! It feels crazy to be finally moving on to IVF. Seems like weve been trying forever! I never really had any names that I've been set on. There have been a few I've liked a lot, but then I kinda grew out of them. I love names and the reasons behind why people choose what they do. DH likes a lot of traditional names which I do as well although I would hate for my kid to have 5 kids in their class with the same name. I think that can be somewhat hard to escape without going off the deep end when it comes to choosing names.

Alix - I LOVE the name Bryce! You don't hear it that often!! I'm glad your family member decided to go with the name Landon so you could have that name!
Christine - Jordyn is adorable!! Such a pretty little smile!!
Isra - I hope you feel better soon! Sorry to hear AF showed her ugly face! KMFC for that BFP soon for you!
Tara - I'm so excited for your journey to continue! How many egss did you decide to go with?
AFM - I'm 4 weeks 3 days now and really not feeling many symptoms so far except for fatigue and breast tenderness. Every now and then I feel a little queasy if i go long periods without eating something but for the most part I am feeling pretty good. We are very excited about our trip to disney and are counting down the days. And of course I am counting down the days to my first OB appt as well. I decided to tell my mom and my sister only and DH is ok with that. We arent telling anyone else right now though. My sister is going to be the godmom of the baby so I wanted to include her. They are very excited and my mom teared up! From what I calculated from my LMP my EDD would be July 19, 2014. July is going to be a very busy month! My birthday is July 25, my husbands birthday is July 26 and our youngest's birthday is July 27.

Amy- I think you're right about it being easier to branch out with girl names. I love the name Nathan...that would be on my list excpet DH knew a Nathan type of deal. That's what I say to my patients when they are unsure about names yet is that sometimes you'll know when you wait and see the baby. Hope some energy comes back your way! The zoo is a lot of fun! That is so cool about the picks of their embryos I hope we get some!
Faith- That's exciting you got to tell your sister and Mom! Wowszer, July sounds like it's going to be crazy Birthday month for your famly! My guess is give it a couple more weeks and you'll have some more symptoms either that or you'll be one of the lucky ones that doesn't
AFM- After a lot of discussion....we are planning on transfering two embryos unless something comes up. It costs so much money to do IVF at all that we really would like to increase our chances. only a couple days until the SIS and then 6 days to the supresssion check!

AFM- Did my SIS today which wasn't bad. In her words the results were "textbook" normal. Seriously, confused sometimes as to why we've had problems at all TTC when so far everything has been pretty normal. She also said it looked like there were aboule 12 dormant follicles on the R and 9 on the L side which is good for when we start the IVF cycle and stimulation meds. Wednesday is our supression check and things should start moving along then! DH also had another SA today which we will have to wait on the results for.

Alix- Hope you feel better soon! It's highly unlikely it's related to the flu shot. I think your doctor was right about it either being MS or gastritis (stomach bug). Either way glad you got rehydrated and some zofran on board. Hope that the migraine goes away, too! Hugs, it's no fun not to feel good!
