:goodluck: I just wanted to wish you good luck! I hope your FET is successful. You'll be in my T&P. KUP
Thanks!!! Hopefully the embies are thawing out right now (I guess it works that way). My friend has this vision of them sitting out on the counter like a tray of frozen meat. It's not funny but it is KWIM? I'll try to keep y'all updated tomorrow afternoon.
Good Luck!!! Thinking about you!!!
Good luck!! Keep us updated!
good luck girl!
Good luck! It's tomorrow, right?
Praying for you, my friend. Remember our mantra... 2012 will be better than 2011!!!
Hoping you have a couple of embies survive the thaw and that everything goes accordingly. Wolf and I will be in your neck of the woods tomorrow. I will msg you in the morning sometime.
Good luck today!
Wishing you all the best today!
Good luck!!!!! Keep us Postedd!!!!
Thanks Ladies!! Things went better than we could have even imagined. Not only did we have some that survived the thaw, we had 2 that grew!!! They implanted 2 embryos that are better quality than last time.
I'm actually feeling cautiously optimistic. It is going to be an incredibly long 2 weeks though but we'll get through it. Craziness.
I'm so glad everything went well!!! Yeah for 2 really good embies!!!! I'm keeping everything crossed for you and praying for a speedy 2 weeks!!!!!
That is awesome! Now stick little beans, stick!!!
I've been stalking for an update! That is GREAT news!! :woohoo:
Thanks Friend! Hope that Martha is doing well. We'd love to see if you are going to be around. Just call me.
Congrats on a great transfer!! That's awesome! When is your beta?
That's great news!! So excited for you!
Hope your bean stickssss!!!!
((((((((sticky vibes))))))))). Thinking of you guys!!
Having two embies is great news! When is your beta?
Great news!!!! Keeping my fingers crossed. Hope the next 2 weeks goes fast for you!
This is what I was going to say! I'm eager for your beta. Will you poas?
Yay! That's great news, sending you blazing BFP vibes!!
Sorry the delay in responding. Back at work so I should have access to internet
Thanks for all of the well-wishes. I'm feeling pretty good. Very tired but good. My beta is a week from Tuesday. I'm not sure if I'll POAS. DH doesn't want me to (for my own protection - I take BFNs pretty hard) but we'll see. Last time I just "knew" that I wasn't so if I have that same feeling, I probably won't. BUT if the opposite is true, I might.
I'm hoping that the being tired is a good sign for you. I don't blame you for not wanting to POAS. I didn't ever want to because I could still think myself pregnant if I didn't know otherwise. I did POAS on my last cycle and that was a BFN, that was the only time I did. What are you doing to keep your mind occupied for the next week?
I have a feeling that this week is going to drag a little bit more than last. It's back to reality (and no more doting mother and MIL) with work and whatnot. I think once tomorrow is over and done with I'll feel better (I abhor Valentine's Day. Too much expection and pressure. Plus DH has already told me that I'm not getting anything. Shouldn't be a surprise - need I remind y'all about Christmas? :ROFL:)
I am working on a baby blanket for my BFF that is expecting in July. Knitting is definitely a stress-reducer for me and I feel productive when I complete a big chuck of the pattern.
Thanks again for all of the well-wishes. I really do feel pretty optimistic about it. I will tell you a quick story though (PREG MENTION). I got a massage Monday night at one of those chain places. The girl that was going to work on me rounds the counter and what do I see first? Her 6-months along belly!! I just laughed it off. She takes me back into the room and sees that I'm here for a pre-transfer massage. She says, "Well maybe I'll be good luck for you." And I said, "Let's go with that." She then says, "I have a story for you." I cringe when people have "stories" for me because 50% of the time, they are trying to be helpful but end up making things worse. Well, this was a good story. Apparently she had been working with this lady for a few years that was "having troubles like you". The lady went in the day before her transfer for the girl to give her a massage. Not only was the lady's transfer successful, she had the baby on the girl's birthday!! How crazy is that? There's been a few more "instances" where I have felt that this is going to work. But it all remains to be seen!!
Oh, yes...I remember your Christmas. You deserve a little something from DH. Do you get him anything?
I hope that your massage therapist knows something you don't and that she has baby vibes.
[QUOTE=meggyrn]Oh, yes...I remember your Christmas. You deserve a little something from DH. Do you get him anything?
Yeah. I got him a card off of Etsy about a month ago. Bought him a present last week (his mom took me shopping) and I took him to dinner last night. This is no joke, I ALWAYS end up in tears on Valentine's Day and I know that with all of the hormones racing through me it'll be worse this year. I HATE today. I spent a good chunk of my life w/o anyone (DH was my first date, kiss, everything. I promise I'm not that ugly I don't think, just incredibly shy) and dreamed of what it would be like to finally have someone to do all the stupid lovey (but secretly awesome) stuff with today and he wants nothing to do with it. I think it's one thing if you both agree to not do anything. But seriously, he has NEVER done anything. And it can start to mess with your self-esteem after a while. But I digress. Sorry to vent. You'd think after 11 years, I'd learn. I put the hopeless in hopeless romantic.
I'm so sorry Jenni. :bigarmhug: It's too bad DH doesn't do something JUST FOR YOU since it is so important to you. Even if he's not romantic he could think up of a little something. I'm sure you'd be happy with a card just to know he's thought of you.
I really hope he surprises you today, Jenni!
Jenni, you're killing us here...any updates?!!! Symptoms?
I don't really know what to think. Faintly pos test on Wednesday night but neg test using FMU on Saturday morning :shrugs: This time last time, I already has some breakthrough bleeding and spotting but so far nada. I could give you a list an arm long of possibly symptoms but then I could also justify all of them. I guess we'll just wait and see tomorrow but I'm not holding my breath. But thanks for checking in.
I hope you will be surprised tomorrow! Have you POAS since Saturday?
No. I'll probably POAS tomorrow morning before my beta (7:30 EST). DH has a conference call/meeting all afternoon so unlike last time, I'll be the one taking "the call" tomorrow. It's probably for the better since last time I ended up having to call them back anyway to set up f/u appt. I'm just so confused and anxious. I've got some non-baby related things going on (don't I always?) and that has me pretty stressed right now. But we will know for sure 24 hrs from now.
Hoping you have good news today, Jenni!
Jenni, I have everything crossed for you today!
Praying for you!!
Good luck today!!!!Fingers crossed!!!!!!
Thanks. BFN this morning Not holding out much hope that it worked. But thanks anyway. Nurse said it would be sometime this afternoon when they called so I'll keep you upated.
I'm still holding out hope for you. I'm hoping that the test this morning was a dud! Can't wait for your update.
Just got the call from the clinic. Confirmed that it didn't work this time. I'm so full of emotions that I'm not quite sure what I feel right now. As it stands now, we are going to do another fresh cycle. I'll hopefully have a better timeline once the dr calls me back to schedule our "debriefing" appointment. I'm so sorry to be a disappointment. Thank you all for your support. Good luck to everyone else. I hope that your journeys have smoother trails.
Jenni, YOU are in no way a disappointment. We are just disappointed FOR you. :bigarmhug:
I am sorry this continues to be such a long and painful journey for yall. Continued prayers for you and C.
:bighug: I'm so sorry Jenni. I agree with PP, you are not a disappointment. Take some time to yourself right now to heal and grieve before making any decisions. :bighug:
:bigarmhug: you are not a disappointment!!! DOn't apologize!! We are all here for the ups & downs!! I agree with Meg!! Take some time to process and grieve before you make any decisions!!!
We are disappointed for you. It's not your fault that it didn't work! Give yourself some time to grieve. IVF is emotionally challenging.
Oh, you are so not a disappointment. I am sorry it did not work out this time and it is definitely not your fault. I agree with everyone, take some time to grieve.
Jenni, so sorry to hear it didn't happen this time. Like everyone else said, I am so disappointed for you. I hope your doctor has some insight when you talk to him. Take care of yourself and keep us updated when you are ready.
I'm so sorry. :bigarmhug:
*hugehugs* I'm so sorry.
Oh no...I'm so sorry. :bigarmhug: :bigarmhug:
I will keep everything crossed for your next cycle.
