Congratulations

Remember how I said in the last post I had all this insight and knowledge?

I don't.

Th doctor called back. My blood levels were normal and great. I'm pregnant. He said the bleeding could be normal but to call him if it gets worse because he can do more. But, for now, it's okay.

I'm scared. Why don't I feel any better?

    You're not going to relax until you are holding that beautiful baby in your arms. Plain and simple.

    So go ahead and stress. Freak out. Do whatever you need to do to get through the next 8 months. We're all here for you, and we're all pulling for you!!

    And duh.... CONGRATS!!!

    oy! I don't think I can take the stress. I can only imagine how you feel. Hang in there.

    Don't know what to say except I'm still thinking about you and hoping this will end happily in about eight or nine months.

    Oh my, I am soooooooo hopeful and pleased:)

    I am wishing you as much stress free time as possible over the next few months but know that is like pissing into the wind - an exercise in futility!

    I understand your fear and anxiety. It'll be tough but you have as much support as you can get here (((hugs)))

    And just quietly - congratulations!

    that is such great news!!!

    And why are you not feeling better? I think, kb, is right about that (we share the same initials, so how could she be wrong :))

    take good care of yourselves (plural...), again, this is such wonderful news.

    Congrats!

    For what it's worth, I had *very* heavy bleeding from week 4-7, and still managed to stay pregnant. We could never find any explanation for it.

    Wishing you the best!

    You don't feel any better because, for all time I think, there is a rule that one will continue to be scared after working so hard to acheive something. That's why we're here! To send huge CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    and hugs and support and promises that all will be okay. I am so beyond thrilled for you!

    Congratulations! Hope the bleeding stops soon so that your mind can be at ease and you can enjoy being pregnant. I am sending lots of sticky vibes your way.

    Congrats! I know you've got to be freaked out...Hope the bleeding goes away and you get a bunch of wonderful pregnancy symptoms so you can feel a little better. Thinking of you!

    Congratulations!!!!!!! Sending big hugs. I know how hard this will be but I'm pulling for you. A friend of mine who also did IVF had bleeding and she has a baby today, if that helps.

    This is great news! I posted to you a few days ago and recounted how most of the people I know who got pg doing IVF had spotting and some had full bright red bleeding. Unfortunately, you are one of that lovely club now! UGH! Your hcg levels would not be so great if you were m/c. They most likely be low; abnormally low, and your RE knows what they should be at this stage.
    I do agree with anothe rposter though, you will not be able to relax until you are holding that baby in your arms. I know I didn't. Right up until I held him, I didn't believe I was really going to have a healthy baby. I wish it wasn't like this for you; you've been through too much already.
    I must say it though, CONGRATULATIONS! I know a glass of wine would probably help to relax you right now, but you can't have one for a very good reason. Go hug your honey and your little girl. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
