Quick note again because I'm at the hospital. Doing well today, a very normal day! Though I'm sick of being bloated... if I knew I'm pregnant for sure, then I would have some comfort, but knowing this might just be for "nothing", hehehe, makes not fitting as well in my clothes a little more frustrating! Ah, well, I lost it so quickly last time, it shouldn't be a problem if I have a BFN. And if I have a BFP, then I'll be allowed to do a little more soft exercise and I'll hop on that stationary bike to burn some calories!
Other than that, some frustrations at work. Still waiting for my transfer in another office. Tanya, you probably know, but things are so SLOW! I'm not officially hired, though I have the job (job has to be posted till June 19th before I sign the contract... now I'm the replacement on my own job
), so I can't make the calls myself... so we've been told my office was ready there, but my boss didn't have the time to go check in person... because in hospitals, when they tell you something is ready, you have to see it with your own eyes... the office might be completely devoid of furniture, or packed with boxes... or it might even be a closet!
And my boss leaves for a week in France next week... *SIGH* What really annoys me is that I have to be there to talk to some people... they asked me to write a research project for the urology department, and I'm not familiar with the specific needs of their patients. But I can still not make any phone call or talk to anyone right now (I'm in another building). ANd I'm not mentioning my current patients! I have to give appointments and I don't even know which building I'll be in next week! Bureaucracy.... ACK!
Mybaby: don't know if you wanted to join the thread or not, but I added you to the list. Welcome to the nut house!
This is your first IVF, so trust the advice of a second-timer... NEVER have an agenda with IVF. NEVER! It usually doesn't go according to plan! So let go of that, and stop worrying! There are solutions for everything; wait and see what happens. It will all happen in time.
TansRN: sorry you're working this weekend! I'll see two couples tomorrow morning!
Let's hope they behave!
arizonakiwi: Angela, my sweet friend... I'm so sorry to hear that you're still very emotional. It's normal... it was a big shock and you guys had lots of expectations for that little fighter... I completely understand how having no frozen embies makes it worse. Do you have any precise plans for the future or is it too soon to talk about it? Please hunny, please... don't see your embies as weak! Remember what my embryologist said; usually only 40% of embies make it to blast stage! That's the best conditions! It doesn't mean that other embies, transferred or frozen on day 3, wouldn't have made it just fine! I send you lots of hugs and love sweetie. Come back whenever you're ready; we'll be glad to have news.
Okay, that number is FABULOUS! I'm willing to place a bet on twins now!
You must be SO impatient for your u/s! Hehehe I see we shared a brain on the baby vibes! Maybe I should rub myself on the next pregnant woman I see in the subway, tummy to tummy... mmmmh... she might freak out a little bit though...
Yeah, better stick to the vibes in my office!
kerribell: the other ladies gave good answers. The intensity of the pain depends on many factors. I had OHSS symptoms for a week and believe me, I was glad whenever I could sit down. The day of ER, you want and have to stay home. There's the side effects of the meds, and the intervention per se. Then for one or two days after that, the pain usually intensifies. It then peaks, and starts fading out. The week post-ER, at least for me, is usually the worse in the whole IVF cycle. Good luck, though, and I'm sending lots of baby dust to you!
jen: hehehehe sorry the choice is so nerve-wraking!
But whatever you choose hunny, you know we're all here, cheering you!
jul1e: glad you found the info useful!
How are the hormones treating you?
mandeeq: last but not least... my sweet darling, you posted while I wrote my post yesterday, and I only saw it today. I'm so sorry about your BFN... you waited for so long to test... But you seem to be like me. After my BFN, I felt relieved to know for sure, and I turned right towards the future, telling myself that there was no use crying over spilled milk. I send you lots of good vibes sweetie and you'll see, it gets better. *HUGS*
Have a good day ladies,
