    Candace: Gosh - no one has asked me yet (other than close friends and family who knew what we were going through). I'm not sure what I would do if someone at work randomly congratulated me! My pants are tighter and it looks like I paid for a boob job, but most people still probably think I've been hitting the donuts too hard.

    I have no idea when I'll feel totally comfortable telling people, without the obligatory "well, we've been here before", especially strangers at work. Could you somehow deflect the unwanted comments/questions with a "I'm not ready to announce just yet"...?

    I haven't been on this thread before...I don't think it was here when I was in the first tri., but maybe it was and I just didn't notice. It's great to hear updates from all the recent grads though! I was a nervous wreck until I started feeling movement around 17 weeks. It was tough to go from constant monitoring at the RE's to the more laid-back ob office.

    Everyone at work knows. I have made a few comments on FB but have not made the BIG announcement....

    I've completely gotten too big for my regular clothes already. This happened to me with my loss 2 years ago too. I start to show early. Several people at my work know, simply because they knew I was going through IVF. I'm not ready to come out and just say it to everyone though. If they ask, I will be honest.

    Beth ~ I can't believe you are already 27 weeks!!! It seems like just yesterday that you got your BFP! Congrats! You didn't overlook this thread during your 1st trimester... it was just started a couple of weeks ago.

    Candice ~ I feel the exact same way... that I'm lying! It's crazy. I guess I will feel better about everything once I pass about 16-20 weeks! I'm so scared to go to my next scan (June 7th) and them tell me the heart is no longer beating.

    I think we all go through this phase of trying to protect ourselves *if* something were to happen. I almost feel like I'm lying to myself if I start getting overly confident! I find it very hard to deflect questions and so far, anyone who has asked, I just tell them the truth. Luckily it hasn't been very many people. I'm sorry that you're feeling weird about it. I wish all of us girls who had IF could enjoy pregnancy the way the fertile Myrtles do.

    Beth - They kindly started this thread because there were a bunch of us in the first tri who were mulling around and felt like we had nowhere to post. I wasn't comfortable on the BB's yet, and I felt weird going to the grad thread because everyone was so far along and I felt like they would think I was just being a worry-wort.

    Candice, I felt l was lying, too. Say what you are comfortable with...if people asked me at work (b/c someone let the cat out of the bag), I was prepared to say, "Wow, what a fun rumor! I guess you'll have to wait and see!".

    Hey guys... I had a terrible scare today!!! I was sitting at work and felt a huge gush. I rushed to the bathroom and there was so much blood. I FREAKED! I called my Ob and they got me in immediately.

    I had an u/s and verything turned out fine. I have a subchorionic hemorrhage. They said not to be scared if I have more gushes. There was still blood in my uterus from what we saw on the u/s. I'm on bed rest the remainder of today and tomorrow.

    The baby is doing great! Measuring 9 weeks on the dot! Heartrate is strong at 173bpm. We got to see his/her little arms and legs moving around!!! What a relilef!

    Here are my photos... Sorry, they aren't good quality. My camera battery was dead and these were taken with my iphone. The u/s pics are shiny and it caused a glare.

    OMG Jana!!!!! How terrifying!!!!!!!! I probably would have dropped dead on the spot. I'm so happy to hear that everything is ok! And what great u/s pics! You can clearly see the little gummi bear shape!

    Rest up for these next two days, so everything has a chance to heal. Eat some ice cream and watch Oprah. That always makes me feel better.

    Thanks, Christi! I "almost" dropped dead.... seriously! I'm doing well. I've been taking it easy at home. I probably should've gone back to work today, but I'm taking today off as well and will return on Monday.

    How are you???

    Jana, how scary but I'm glad you and baby are doing great. Those pics are priceless. Isn't it amazing the difference just a couple weeks makes?
    Take care and relax a lot this weekend.
