We had a 2nd ultrasound at 9w4d yesterday (no it's not normal to do so, but I've had issues in the past and we wanted to be sure). Everything was fine, strong heartbeat, normal size, relieved Neeroc and hubby. We've now graduated from our RE, and will be seeing our OB in June. We have decided, despite my 'advanced age', not to do IPS testing. I really can't see anything other than more worry coming from it. I am still not sold on MSS either. The outcome of the tests is not going to change our pregnancy, and all they seem to do is add you to a higher risk category, not give answers. Luckily, my RE agreed, calling the tests a Pandora's Box; I hope the OB will feel the same way about MSS when the time comes.

So it looks like I really am finally pregnant. I think I have to let that sink in for a bit.
Who does she think she is?

Oh, I cannot tell you how happy I am for you!!! I'm sure everything will be fine and I think you're right not to do any more testing. It's your choice, so don't let someone talk you into it if you don't want to do it.

again, congratulations!!

I'm glad to hear you agree, I know so many people that had the tests pushed on them, including one 35 year old that was signed up directly for amnio! Thanks.

I am so happy for you both~Congratulations once again. It's good to hear that you will not be undergoing any test. I opted out of any & all. I didn't want the risk of losing my babies after going through so much and then we asked ourselves,"Will we abort the babies if something is wrong?" and when the answer was a firm NO...we knew we didn't need any sort of test. I think that you are doing the right thing for yourselves and your baby. Relax, enjoy and love everyday!!! I am so happy~You're gonna have a baby!!!! *Squeeee*

That was my feeling exactly. We aren't going to terminate so why add stress and worry for an imprecise test? I am so much more relaxed now too.

Hey!! Congratulations... this is wonderful news.

C'mon, make the announcement in infertilitees, I'm sure it'll give your fellow members lots of hope that it can happen for them too!

YAY! So happy for you.... when is your EDD?

Thanks very much! I haven't been around much, as I'm still slightly freaked out. And truth be told I haven't known how to announce this in any of the groups...I'll figure something out. My EDD is 12/7/7

How are you doing? Are you FETing already?

You should announce it, like everyone else does... behind a cut tag. Don't be afraid of sharing your good news -- as I said before, I'm sure that your fellow community members will rejoice with you and it will give most of them hope too, especially long-timers like us! (And, if you put your news behind a sensitivity cut, you won't be intentionally hurting anyone who doesn't want to read such news.) Anyway, if it's okay with you, I'd like to at least put your due date next to your bio on the infertilitees info page.

As for me... as you may know, the 1st IVF (transferred 1 embryo) failed. The next cycle we did an IVF using the 1 frozen embryo (blastocyst transfer) we had left from the 1st cycle. Unfortunately, that failed too. Now, we're about to go into retrieval for the 3rd and last IVF cycle. Keep your fingers crossed!
