AWWW, ladies, thanks for your responses. I am glad that some of you also feel such a thread would be helpful. i read a few responses before i went to bed last night and appreciate the support. It helps knowing i am not alone. I woke up this morning feeling somewhat better (thank you, hormone mood swings
). In fact (now, don't anyone faint on me here if you have been reading my other posts this month!), i am actually EXCITED for my FET next wk. WTF? Get this... there was actually a toddler in my RE office and it didn't even bother me! Talk about some serious mood swings! US this morning brought good news... thus i hit the "excited" category... lining at 9mm already. Yipee! (Ok, ok, enough positivity for a ranting thread
: oooo... the plate thing to the head would have been very impressive (meg once suggested an "IVF defense", similar in so many ways
to the insanity defense... you could have put it to work!). as for the embryo thaw... my clinic does blast ETs, and the embryos were thawed just after fert, so they will thaw and give them 3-4 days to see which (or-- fingers crossed-- how many) will blast.
: I did acu a few times, mostly for stress relief. Didn't notice much for me, but i think that's 'cause i stopped after only 2 times. I am familiar w/people doing it before and after ET, but not familiar w/the schedule around ER. sorry can't be helpful. I remember when you got your "no fert" news and how heartbreaking and difficult that was for you. Glad to see you "back on the horse". I am hoping big time for you that you not only get lots of ferts, but also a BFP!
: lots of women find acu to be very helpful, that is why i gave it a shot. It wasn't bad, i just didn't notice much change in stress or relaxation for me (although at $150/sesssion, maybe i was expecting too much???
: that's the reason i didn't put this as a "multiple cycle failure" thread, know there are women that are on #1 IVF that would share the same emotions. Glad to see you on here!
: ooooo, can't wait for a good meg-rant... the nice, juicy kind! I also enjoy reading a good rant... ESPECIALLY when i am in the ranting mood. So no, i don't think that makes you a bad person... (because that would make me one, too
I am sure that i have a good angry rant inside me just dying to get out... but not feeling it now... and i am going to enjoy the peace while i have it (lord knows, another down swing will be coming soon enough!)
