Thank you for the best wishes. I send them right back at ya.
I will try to avoid the HPT but can make no guarantees.

What an exciting and nerve-wracking time. I have found that vanilla bean ice cream is a great relaxant...

This is my second attempt and it took me 3 years to get here. I have taken the " speak as it will happen" approach and am expecting a BFP. Of course, I am a sensible person and know that it is not completely in my hands but I remain hopeful. You are ready when YOU are ready... Good luck to you and p...

not quite new but it has been awhile

Hi there, I had IVF 3 years ago which resulted in a chemical pregnancy. I spent a few years being bummed and am now just 5 days away from FET. I hope my little embryos have enjoyed their 3 year cold storage and are ready to work their magic for me. I have asked my doctor to transfer 3 due to an incr...

Thanks for the fingers crossed. I've had mine crossed since Saturday. I think im getting a wee bit of a cramp. I had 6 frozen. I hope I dont need them but if I do, at least that would be more affordable if I had too. As far as how I am spending my time these next two weeks, well, I have a scheduled ...

Twins lost

My sister lost both of her twins one day before her due date because of Twin to Twin transfusion syndrome. It is a syndrome that basically feeds one twin and starves the other. Diagnosis is made within the first few months, however, my sister nor the babies showed any signs of this. They were progre...
