  • Diane, Please don't worry about the weight gain...It will all come off again-especially if you choose to breast feed-you burn about 500 calories a day producing the milk! I'm not even in my 2nd tri and I've gained 5-7lbs!!!

    Do pay attention to the depression though....ask your doc for a referral to a counselor if you are truly feeling depressed. Some of the tell tells are: not taking interest in activities that you used to enjoy, change in sleep, change in appetite, feeling "down in the dunps", avoiding social interactions. I know pregnancy can bring these symptoms too, so it is hard to tell sometimes which is which. There is a self test on line you can take. Google "beck depression inventory". It will give you a great self test.

    Missy, I doubt you'll mistake the labor cues from what I've heard they are hard to miss!! Celeia, you crack me up! I cant wait to be dressing a squirming baby

  • Quickie post for now............

    On the Home Page go down to the "Pregnancy Talk" section. Go to the column on the right. At the bottom of the column is the link to "Pregnancy After Infertility". That will take you directly to this board.

  • Checkin in, it's great you guys finally made the move, I didn't post much on the IVF board about pregnancy unlessed asked, due to experience, I felt so uncomfortable talking about babies on there, I didn't want to hurt anyone going through a cycle, nor did I want to prevent any potential IVFers looking for support from joining.

    pregnancy update
    I am progressing along in this pregnancy, it's been really hard both mentally and physically for some reason, but the end is near, will have a scheduled c-section. The baby is measuring a week ahead, and it's a girl, looking for names and coming home outfits presently.

    Congratulations to all of you, 2005 was such a great year for the IVF ladies, hopefully some more of the lovely ladies from there will be moving over here.

    Finally able to post my signature

  • Glinda...can we do a thread (like we had on the IVF thread) that lists everyone, our due dates, and what we are having.
