Remember me? Newly pg

Hi everyone,

I was on the TTC 6+ and 12+ boards in 2008 and 2009, and left after my first IVF failed in Dec 2009. I am now coming back to join PAIF, after 4 years of TTC, including 4 failed IVF's (one ending in m/c), and one failed FET. Now 8w pregnant after dIUI, due 12/23/12.

It's hard to get excited yet since it's so early, and things have gone so wrong for us every time before. After 4 years trying, is it really going to work out for us? I can't let myself believe it yet. Still bracing for the letdown.

I have an u/s on Monday and hopefully all is well. At our last u/s we had a nice strong heartbeat.

Congrats to everyone else here and hopefully you can all help talk me through this!

Hi and welcome! It took us 4 years also and after 3 iui's, 3 ivf's, and 3 fets we are finally expecting our miracle next month. I spent the entire first trimester waiting for something bad to happen. I couldn't believe it was finally our time. I understand how you feel completely but once you get into your second trimester you will be able to relax a little bit. Seeing a strong heartbeat is a huge hurdle! Keep us posted after your appt on Monday!
