Thank goodness I'm back to work today - I was starting to obsess, and I have many days to go! The lab called this morning with the report on our 4th little embryo. It went to blast and they were able to freeze it, so now we have 2 little snowbabies keeping each other company in cryo. The nurse said it's good quality. Hopefully that bodes well for the three we transferred on Saturday! I am feeling very relieved about that.
This is hard. I hate the 2WW. I have another week to go!!!!!!!!! I'm not one to POAS, either. I'd rather get a kind phone call from the RE than see that disappointing lonely line on a stick. Hmmph. I'm exhausted and grumpy today, and I'm tired of jamming those damn progesterone suppositories up my hoo-ha. TMI, I know, but what's sacred anymore?
For some reason, I'm feeling pretty positive about this cycle. I know that lots of you are pulling for me - thanks! I need all the help I can get! I was talking to a friend last night on the phone, and she said she noticed a definite change in the way I'm handling this cycle - she says I sound much more positive. I guess I feel like we did some things differently with the Ganirelix protocol and the acupuncture - hopefully that makes the difference in the outcome.
I haven't really told anyone IRL the date of my Beta blood draw. It's 2/28, but I told everyone "sometime during the first week of March." At least that gives me a few days to deal with the news, good or bad.
Mike is convinced that we are going to have twins. I think he's actually hoping for twins! We'll see... we have 5 days to wait until the Beta. Thursday is my longest day at work. It's going to be torturous this week!
Lily has been so much fun lately! She has her moments, but overall she's just the best damn kid. I want so much for her to be a big sister. The other day, she made her first baby comment. She very matter-of-factly said, "Mama, we should get a baby when I'm 4." So cute. Maybe it will work out that way.
So...it's probably just the Progesterone and Estrace, but I'm feeling kinda ooky today. Not "run to the bathroom to hurl" ooky, but "Gee, I could use some Pepto" ooky. We have several more days to wait for any news, though.
I just thought I'd keep y'all updated...
I'm hesitant to post this, but I've gotten requests for an update.
Obsess with me here:
So this morning I woke up at 4:45 and couldn't sleep, so I decided to POAS. I didn't want to wake up Mike, so I only turned on the light over the shower in our bathroom. I tested and waited about 2 min. and only saw one dark line. I went back to bed, Mike was awake, he comforted me for a minute (I was sobbing), and then he got up and took a shower.
I always shower right after him, so I went into the bathroom and the lights were all on. I looked at the test, and there was a faint second line. It had been 10-15 min., but I don't know if it was there the whole time and I just didn't see it b/c I only had the one dim light on...
I looked up "evaporation lines" everywhere and found that they are usually ghost lines or greyish. This is definitely a faint second pink line. I just don't know what to think!
We are hopeful now, but certainly not convinced. Even if I get a positive on Thursday, I won't be convinced until I have an u/s pic in my hand.
I don't want any congratulations or anything yet - I am terrified I'll get bad news on Thursday and feel let down. If someone else posted the pic, I would say, "A line is a line..." but I just don't know. We read it too late. I know there are hundreds of good news stories that come out of similar situations, but I don't want to get my hopes up. Call me a cynic.
I may test tomorrow again, or I may just stop making myself crazy and wait for a quantified result on Thursday. Send patience vibes, please!
OK, so I've done a sufficient amount of obsessing. I'm now feeling hopeful and I could stand a few "I had a faint positive and got a good Beta result" stories. PM me, please! I'm going nuts!!
For the record, I'm 11 days past 3-day transfer, so 14 DPO. Beta is tomorrow and they will give me the numbers sometime in the afternoon.
