Hoping for a Christmas present...

Hi Ladies!

I DEFINITELY dont want to jinx myself but I am preparing for an embryo transfer (13 Dec). If we are blessed enough for it to be successful, we will be due in August.

My huband and I have 2 daughters - 16 and 4. I had Odessa in high school and then go figure when I get married and actually TTC we lost 3 pregnancies to ectopic and both tubes were removed. We are also both active duty military and he is currently deployed. We planned it this way since I will be changing commands and coming off sea duty and this is just the optimal time for me to have time off to dedicate to my appointments and not have the stress.

The beta test is 11 days past transfer which falls on Christmas Eve - they will be in the office for bloodwork in the morning and it should only take a couple hours to hear results, according to the nurse I spoke with so could be great news or could be a let down just before the holiday - kind of risky I guess.

I usually post on the IVF board when I do post but I figured I would introduce myself here and get some positive vibes from this board and all the ladies here! :)Look forward to hopefully getting to know everyone and hopefully being able to join this board!

Im not really sure what the odds are... you know it really depends and statistics dont help too much either... I have pretty good quality embryos and so I think the odds are fairly good. I just dont want to get my hopes too high because it would be a serious let down if it isnt successful. I have only otld one sister in law and a couple close friends. I am trying to keep it on low so if it doesnt work, we have less people asking us how it went. I feel positive and confident though overall... you kind of have to:) Thanks everyone for the well wishes and encouragement!!
