No Trying they would not even attempt a scan at all! The anatomy part is the reason why they wouldnt do it, apparently 18 and a half is not far enough even though gp told me otherwise, already a confusion without having doc say one thing and ultrasound tech saying another, so 20 weeks for anatomy scan which includes gender
I know at this point, where IVF is a necessity, gender shouldn't be an issue. But I can't help but hope that I will be lucky enough to get a boy. Don't get me wrong I will love my future child no matter what.
Did/does anyone else have a preference?
I only ask, because one of the many pregnant women at work was saying the other day how much she's trying to convince herself she's having a boy so that when it's born she isn't upset. When asked if it was because she wanted a girl she said "Of course, every girl wants a girl!"
Even if you have had no or one or five babies, they are all so different and you just got to do what ever gets you through the night
If you are happy to rock them to sleep them rock them to sleep, if you are happy to sleep with your baby then do that, if you are happy to let them cry to sleep, do that.
You have to do what ever makes you and your hubby happy.
Some babys never sleep well and others do.
My oldest didn't sleep through till a year old, 2nd child slept and ate every 2hrs till he was 9mths old. 3rd slept through everyones noise and was sleeping through the night at 6 weeks old, but she had clicky hips at 4 mths and had to go in a brace, had exczma and food allergies and then had her tonsils out at 16mths old. Every time she had tonsilious it would disrupt her sleep and it would take forever to correct her sleep patterns.
All I know is follow your heart, it will tell you what will work best for you.
Sometimes the more knowledge you have or advice from people the more stressed it makes you.
Just take one day at a time and it will all fall into place
Hi hope for a!!!! No this isn't my first cycle it will be my 3rd :-( I think I'm starting on 125 puregon or how ever u spell it lol. I'm really hoping it works this time! I just want everything to go smoothly lol
Well second cycle but third transfer
Well scan #2 revealed my follies are growing excruishling slow. They are only about 10mm now and smaller. Can't believe the difference between this cycle and the last. Still on 125ui but they'll ring me this afternoon after they gets bloods to see if they'll up a bit higher and just keep chugging. EPU was scheduled for Wednesday but I'll be lucky to make Monday, if at all, at this pace. Sigh. All I want to do is finish one cycle.
Finally after a month's wait, dr's appt tomorrow hopefully all is good with result and we will have a ivf plan!
