Hi, I have only just started on here today, and oh boy am I glad I found you.  You seem to answer all of the questions that I feel too embarresed to ask anyone.  I am just a little unsure of all of your shortenings that are used.  Also how do I get the pretty pictures and text boxes at the bottom of posts.  Really where do I go from here.
Oh yes I have had ICSI after 6 years of trying for a baby.  Had one natural pregnancy that I lost with a missed miscarriage hence I am paranoid that although we have been lucky, and I am now almost 12 weeks pregnant this time something is going to go wrong again. Really I can't thank this site enough again for just helping to put my mind to rest.
