    Glad you got some window shopping done. Hope Saturday was interesting in a good way. Good luck with your appt today and debriefing on Thursday. I hope you get some questions answered and have a plan underway for your next cycle. It's always so hard to wait. IF is a huge waiting game.

    Jenni, window shopping is nice...wish I could be doing that. But I am in so much back pain right now, which started yesterday. Bloating today too, and I really look...ungainly, ugh.

    Tiffany, sorry you can't swim right now. I'm not into swimming, but I'm not allowed to run, and it's killing me that I can't run. I don't just miss the running, I miss my runnning friends and having lattes with them after....mmmm.....lattes.....which I can't drink. Oh well. I am looking forward to your next beta results!

    Meg, Tiffany, my pg test is for May 30 as well, which also means 15dpt, since my ET was May 15. I'm more than halfway there on my 2ww but it's sure dragging out....I set up an appt at the lab for a urine pg test at 7:30 am on May 30. I'm kind of annoyed that it's just a urine test...why can't it be a blood beta test as well?? I could just use my own HPTs in that case!!! I think I may try to chat up the ladies at the lab (they know me as I go there for monthly bloodwork on my kidney transplant anyways) and see what's so special about this urine test.

    ...has anyone heard from Kara? Seems like it's been a few days. Hope you are doing well Kara!!!

    I hope Kara is doing ok.

    Sophia...that stinks that your doc only does a urine pg test. I'd have a hard time wanting to go in for that when you can do it for much cheaper at home. Hope your back pain and uncomfortableness is a good sign. Not that I want you in pain, but hopefully it's all for a reward at the end.

    I will figure out how to post the photo online (works on my computer). I've got it on my phone and email account. Where do you post next to get a URL? I just used the URL from my email.

    Yesterday getting my beta, I almost tipped the nurse a $20 just to call me with my results early. She did call me at 11am yesterday and my numbers had more than doubled 1200 from 520. No more betas. Now I wait for my 7w US which is 2 weeks and 6 days from today. Maybe I need a ticker for that. It is going to be a long wait.

    I'll be honest, with the good news it is hard not to get excited. My last pregnancy went well and I have a good feeling about this one. But unfortunately, I know that things can start well and not end well. My heart goes out to everyone who has suffered a m/c and I have friends who have had several. Of course, it didn't take them 2 years to get pregnant each time.

    I talked to one of my friends who is an ob-gyn and she said that if I were still pregnant and needed someone to sign my papers saying I am low risk for the cruise (I will be 15 wks if this works out), she would do it even if I were pregnant with twins. We discussed how if anything happened then there was nothing anyone could do about it. So, the cruise is still on.

    Sophia - swimming has similar implications to me. Several friends of mine swim together plus it is one of our family activities (being in Texas where it is already hot, hot, hot). I am still missing caffeine, but not as much and I am too tired and queasy for alcohol. At least with the pregnancy confirmation it seems worth it.

    At this point I will update you guys on the big news, if there is any. Enough about me. I will pipe in on your stories and offer advice/hugs where I can. Those of you who are still going through this journey, I know what it is like and it sucks. You can feel good about doing everything you can to make it happen, but so much of it is chance and out of our control.

    Thanks for the concern, you guys. I was so busy this weekend, I barely sat down, and then worked yesterday. I am up early today because my husband lost various things this morning and woke me up trying to find them. One of which was his wallet. Of course, I found it right away. It's actually uncanny how I can always find his wallet in about 30 seconds when he's been looking for 10 minutes. He needs organization. It's going to be another busy week this week.

    Jenni, hope your appt went well yesterday and also that the head RE has some good insight for you guys for next round. Do you have any travel plans or anything for the next few months to help speed up the time?

    Sophia, your doctor does make you wait! There's no way I'd be able to resist the HPT's during that time. About the bloating....the first cycle I had very little. This last one, I swelled up more with stims, then when I had the internal bleed, I bloated up so much my skin was itching and I had to walk around with my pants unbuttoned. After that went down, I was still a bit swollen, but not too bad. I actually went up, then down almost 10 pounds in those few weeks. So I don't think either of my experiences was typical, but I do think some bloating is normal.

    Tiffany, I had to upload the pics onto photobucket, then copy either the IRL or HTML and paste that on my post. I couldn't for the life of me get the sizing right, and I just gave up on that after a while. Great beta results for you! I know your concern, but also hope for the best. I did have two early losses last year and it has definitely made me much more nervous, hence the obsessive POAS. That's not going to give me any more information at this point though, so it's just waiting for the blood tests now. It feels much more precarious, though, having gone through so much to get to this point.

    Time to get started with the morning routine. Have a great day everyone.

    Tiffany...Congrats on a great rise in numbers! We still want you around here to chat with us. That's great that you can still go on your cruise. Good point, if something were to happen, there is nothing to do about it.

    Kara...I think it must be a DH thing that they look and look for things and can't find them, then we look and it's right there. I think they don't look in the obvious places...idk. It happens to my DH and I all the time. He's always loosing his wallet and I hate it. He thinks it's no big deal since he really doesn't use it but I like to know where it is since it does have cash, credit cards and his ID in it.

    I going to go "chop" my hair off today. I guess I can't really say chop since I already have short hair. I'm going to get it cut shorter. I need a low maintenance style for the summer. Then I'm going to dye it a light blond.

    I'm done with my job. I was going to work today but was told I didn't have to if I didn't want to since we only were seeing one pt so I opted to stay home. I need to get things ready to go for the lake tomorrow.

    My DH has one day left of his job after today. Idk who's more excited me or him.

    What are everyone's plans for the holiday weekend? We are headed up to our lakehouse. Hopefully get the boat in the water. I hope we have nice weather. It's been in the 80's here the last few days so hopefully the nice weather stays over the weekend.

    I finshed the 2nd "Hunger Games" book the other night. I'm taking a break to read a book I checked out from the library before starting the 3rd one.

    I am off tomorrow but working Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Boo! I should get off early enough on Monday to have a BBQ with some friends. The weather has been hot, hot, hot and I am not allowed to swim... so I guess I might as well work indoors and wait it out. Also, another reason to be excited about moving to Minnesota.

    Going out to the lake sounds ideal. I hope you have a great weekend.

    P.S. In my relationship, I lose stuff and hubby finds them. So, not sure if it is really a girl/boy thing. I am just juggling a lot of balls right now (and always).

    Kara - Thank you SO much for remembering. Honestly it means so much that with everything exciting going on that you would think to ask about my appt. It went about how I had expected. The dr is still optimisitic that I can (and perhaps will?) get pregnant again. Due to Chris' work schedule, it will be at least the first of August before we do another fresh cycle (Happy Birthday to me I hope!). I'm to call at the start of my July AF cycle to presumably start BCPs. I'm at peace somewhat about it. The dr did say that it couldn't hurt to be as healthy as possible (i.e. loose weight) so we are focusing on that. I'm really trying to distract myself this summer with positive things. My BFF's ordination, her brother's wedding (in which my brother is a groomsman), her baby due a few days later, plus a few other "fun" things that I can think of (no time or money right now for our annual beachtrip so pretty bummed about that). I am very sad that I won't be pregnant at the same time as my BFF. Or Father's Day. Or my birthday. These are things that I am going to have to acknowledge and move on from. But we have a plan and hope. Probably more than you cared to hear about. Thank you again for asking!!

    I've had to take a break from the last week or so. So many exciting things happening around these parts but unfortunately a few things have been triggers big time. I realize now that I was being overly sensitive to some of the things said. I'll try to do better.

    Hope everyone is doing well!!
