Hi, ladies :) So sorry I haven't been on here in a while. I'm just pretty much losing my mind. One minute I swear I have to be pregnant, and the next I think there is no way I could be pregnant. Guess I'll know tomorrow! I know a few of you have endometriosis too, and that gunk makes my body so hard...

Yeah Cornybaby! I am so happy to hear your news. I am sure you will be on edge for the next 3 months, but try to relax and enjoy as much of it as you can. I'm so happy for you! Beaner, I am so sorry you got a BFN. Hang in there sweetie and don't give up hope. As for me...I have 3 more days until my ...

Yeah, IndieRad! That is so amazing :) Enjoy every minute of it! I have a question for all of you...I know progesterone can cause you to have sore nipples, but can it also cause you to have a weird tingly sensation? My body has pretty much told me that I'm not pregnant, but then starting yesterday my...

Sue Hu, we had a very similar situation with only two fertilizing and both made it happily until the transfer date. I am sure your little embies will be fine too :)

Kate, what do they do exactly for the genetic testing?

Thank you Jill N Mark for putting that list together. It helps a lot!

CornyBaby...I've been thinking of you a lot. Any updates? I sure hope it is continuing to go well.

Oh, and one more thing. I know what you mean about the difficulty dealing with others. I would never wish anyone not to be able to get pregnant or to have a family, but it is really hard to justify why we can't and others (not all, but the ones who probably shouldn't) have no problems at all. I gues...

There must be something in the air...I have felt particularly anxious and desperate this time around. There is a small glimmer of hope left in my heart, but I really feel that it will be a BFN. I have severe endometriosis, and I have pain from that and have had pain from that since 4dpt. I did do so...

Everyone says something different. I exercised until I got near my retrieval, but I stopped mainly because I was starting to feel uncomfortable. I think the important thing is not to try to lose weight while you are on the meds as this can cause your hormone levels to fluctuate. As far as after the ...

I'm so sorry, IrishHope. Even when you're prepared (as I have had plenty of BFNs) it's still tough. So you are in all of our thoughts. Take some time and really pamper yourself...even if that just means laying around in a snuggly blanket all day :) I am really sorry so many of you have awful nurses....

Sorry ladies for the delayed response. I have my blood test on March 14th. I am so nervous...this 2ww thing kills me. I said I wouldn't obsess about it this time, but...I am! I have endometriosis and it really messes with my ability to read my body. I have a lot of hope, but can't help but think tha...

Yeah, Jenis! I am so happy for you and DH! I know you will be nervous for a while, but to enjioy just being pregnant! It is such a great experience. I am so sorry, Kbat. I am sure you are feeling quite defeated...hang in there and rely on each other to get through this. Can't remember who was asking...

Have any of you had to give yourselves the Progesterone shot in the but? My husband is going away all of next week and I need to do it by myself. I'm so afraid I'm going to hurt myself! I know I sound silly, right?
Any tips?

I'm so sorry, CornyBaby...you have been on such rollercoaster ride. I'll keep you in my thoughts and just hang in there, okay? Itsgottawork - I know the feeling. Last time I had 15 eggs and 13 fertilized. THis time I had 8 eggs and only TWO fertilized! They used the same exact procedure too. So weir...
