Don't Count Your Eggs

Denise, I'm so sorry. I know it's heartbreaking. I've been there. I wish your healing heart so much love.


You and I had ET on the same date. I had a feeling that mine didn't work. I found out on Wednesday that it was in fact Negative. What us IF girls do to our bodies to one day hope of becoming a mom is painful and never guaranteed.

I truly hope that you have a much happier number today. Good Luck Maya, I've been thinking about you.


I'm praying for your next Beta to be higher and I also just voted! xo

Don't Count Your Eggs

I have so much love for all of you guys, you don't even know. Alice--I'm sorry about your bumpy road but excited that you're well on your way! Blood has been drawn for BETA take 3, and now I wait. Hopefully the results will be in earlier. I've had weird cramping the last two days, which makes me super paranoid. But whatever it is it is. And VT--you KNOW how hard it is for me to get to first base! I run like a badger. Will post as soon as I know. Thank you all a zillion times over.

A Few Good Eggs

Thinking of you again today, Maya. Pulling for you, Noah, Moma and a high beta number to lead you into a great PREGNANT weekend. Fingers crossed.

Mr. Thompson and Me

Whatever, M-Dizzle Drama Llama! Just do what you have been doing, keep some sense of sanity and I'll hound you again tomorrow. :)


Your numbers are going up and you are PREGNANT! Hang in there. Positive thoughts coming your way from Utah. I've been following your story since we met at Helen's training. You are going to be a wonderful mother!


Maya, I have been anxiously awaiting your result and am very happy for you. I am praying that your numbers JUMP HIGH! Thinking about you. -Jackie, a random reader in Ohio

You're a drama queen. How can you not be? And all of us are involved in your drama. So you might as well wear the crown! Dad


Momo's fighting! :) It is a beautiful number. :) And I'm still keeping fingers crossed, for the home run. :)


I've been on pins and needles waiting to see your post! So happy it was good news. It's amazing how much we feel invested in other people's stories without ever meeting them. I am here in WI cheering you, Noah, and Momo on!!! Continued prayers going out that you will finally get your happy ending, your take home baby! Big Hugs!!!


Wow. Amazing news!

M. Eliz

This is great news! So glad to see this update.


I often get goosebumps when reading your blog as it resonates with many of my own thoughts and emotions. Today it's goosebumps galore! Hoping for more good news to come. :)


Celebrate good times, come on!! --the song that sprang into my head reading this post, so now it can be in your head too. And follow its advice! Celebrate your pregnancy! Congratulations!!! I'm so happy for you.


Hi Maya, I don’t know if you remember but I left a comment here a few months ago (in November). I had just had a missed miscarriage after one year trying to get pregnant (and a diagnosis of unexplained infertility). We had our first IUI in August, exactly one year after we started trying, and when we went for a scan at 12 weeks end of October we found out the baby’s heart had stopped. It was devastating but we tried IUI again in January and it worked again and I’m now 27 weeks pregnant. When I found out I was pregnant in February with a home pregnancy test (2 weeks after the IUI) I had a light, brown spotting so I rang the doctor and they sent me for a blood test. The beta hcg result was 141 on a Friday (15 days after the IUI), then over 1000 on Monday - then I had a scan 3 weeks later.

Although my first beta was high enough, all I read between the first and second beta is that all that matters is that the numbers keep rising/doubling. And you had a 300% rise in 2 days! I can only see this as amazing news! So right now you are pregnant and this is just the beginning of a journey of uncertainty and excitement that will last another 36 weeks or so ;) Enjoy the day today thinking about where you currently stand and not so much about the possible results you are going to get tomorrow. I think it’s normal to feel anxious and worried specially when this is the closest you’ve been to becoming a mom. Even though my pregnancy has been great so far, no complications whatsoever, I still cannot help but worry - I worry if the baby is not moving a lot and if she is moving too much I also worry because I think I’m doing something that is making her uncomfortable! It’s crazy land but also very exciting. Keep positive! Believe this is your time, allow yourself to worry but most importantly allow yourself to enjoy the ride!


YAY! positive thoughts!


Maya just be calm and totally do you something you enjoy these few days..let nature take over..I know it's hard but try not to keep thinking..I hope and pray for both of you :-)

Team Momo!!! And I can tell by your references that you definitely miss the softball team! I'm in, guys! Let's do this.


YEAHHHH!!!! Still in the game. PREGNANT. I hope things get easier for you as time wears on. I know the unease though. After spotting before beta, two solid betas, and then more spotting that starts and stops seemingly just to jerk my chain, it is hard to strike that balance of cautiously optimistic. Hang in there and yes, celebrate the small victories.
