In search of a baby ug

I'm 38 and my caveman 45. We have been together for 8 years and in search of a baby ug for 6+ years. We had no idea when we began to this journey for our baby ug that the road that we would venture down would be so difficult. We are cursed with unexplained secondary infertility. After 6 early miscarriages-- and two ectopics complete with tube removal and 2 failed IUI's, we are starting IVF #1.

Decisions Decisions

so we decided not to go ahead with the amnio. We weren't going to take any action so why risk it. My last appt my Dr., who is growing on me by the way, was not there so I saw another Dr. let's call him Dr. pushy. He pushed me to have the amnio and changed my next appt to be with him. don't worry i changed it right back. ; ) he also spent longer untangling the ultrasound cords then he spent on the actual ultrasound. Didn't check measurements, heartbeat or anything. Let's just say i will be making sure i don't have to see him again and he is NOT delivering my baby. I go back to see my doc next Tues. I am fine, work is crazy busy and sucks! I can't believe we are at 15 weeks already. It is so amazing....I feel so very lucky.

this is not good

i knew it was too good to be true.....

Dr.'s office called with the result of the first trimester screening and my chances of having a baby with down's syndrome were 1 in 133 and after the test they are 1 in 22. The decision I have to make is whether to go ahead and have the amnio and with it risk a miscarriage or just forge ahead.

what to do? what to do?

Week 13

I can't believe this is still happening and so real.

We had the Nuchal Transluncency today and everything looked great. Homi is measuring right on target and has both a neck and nose bone and those are good things. He (I am just referring to the baby as he we don't know for sure yet) is actually starting to look like a real baby. Mr. Ug came too and I had the ultrasound tech let us listen to the heartbeat so he could hear it for the first time :). He wanted a recording...he is so cute....although he would hate that I referred to him as cute he says "babies and puppies are cute" lol.

I am feelling quite fat. I don't really look pregnant yet and all my weight watchers buddies are looking at me sideways in the hall. Especially now that I am not joining the next session. I just don't feel the need to shout it to the world yet and all my coworkers will know soon enough. Clothing just does not look right....pants are not an issue b/c I purchased a few pair and a bella band however what to do about shirts. 90% of my shirts don't fit and the few maternity shirts I have look stupid b/c I have no belly yet. Any suggestion??
