Definitely go see Keane! You will have fun and it will help keep your mind off it.

I know what you mean about eating....I constantly feel hungry and have been baking which is unheard of for me. I keep saying I feel so bloated but i fear maybe I am full of cake rather than fluid! Can you get bloating on your butt and upper thighs????

I absolutely love Greys Anatomy. The DVD set sounds like a great idea. I am off work at the moment but my 7 year old has finished school so he is keeping me busy with TRex models and lego.

Are any of you planning to do a HPT? I am undecided but just in case....when can we start doing them? My clinic doesnt offer a blood test they just gave me a HPT for use 15dp2dt. I think I might just ask for a blood test anyway. Then att least I can track if the beta number improves. What do you think?

BTW, if you post your scheduled test date and whether it is blood or HPT, I'll put a little list together for this thread if that's OK with Susan.

Have a good day.......lets hope all those little embies are sticking!!!

Hi gals
No baking today! I need to stop or I will be in pregnancy clothes before blood test!!!

Susan, apart from the last two items on your symptom lists, I have everything you have too! Keep up the PMA! Only 5 days until your blood test!

OK. So I have been a little bit naughty. I am 4dp2dt and I just did a HPT. The only reason was I read about a girl on these pages who tested around now just to make sure she knew all the HCG from the trigger was gone. Well, it's gone. I will put the tests away for at least another week but had to share this with you guys as DH is adament I shouldnt test until Sat 28th!
:oops:

Hi Ladies, I am not on a 2ww but wanted to wish you all good luck,.

2 days after my transfer we went to the Emirates stadium to watch Arsenal play! I found that keeping busy was the best way to make the time fly.

Please, please stay away from the hpt if you can. They are evil. I used one on my test day and it showed negative, had my bloods done the same day and 2 days later it came back positive!

Susan , I remember you from last year, best of luck sweetpea! Have everything crossed for you x

Hugs to all

Anna - so sweet of you to stop by and wish us well. Will be following you next with ED path

Susan and Tracey - thanks for the advice. I am definitely going to Keane :lol: Cannot bear anymore sitting around, trying to relax.

Had a very bad couple of days. Clinic called yesterday to say that all the other 4 embies never made it past cell divide stage. Never got to blasts but even last time made it to morula and those were still a bfn. So lost a lot of hope yesterday. I know. I know. Best back in me and all that but just cannot face building up my hopes to be crushed again.

I have absolutely no symptoms at all. Feel amazingly and frighteningly normal so cannot join you two on symptom watch.

Tracey - my tummy is still very bloated but I fear that it is the amount that I have been eating :roll:

Susan - cannot believe that you test is on Monday. Hope that you have some nice things planned for the weekend with james. Try to have some fun

Enjoy the weekend girls.

Take good care.
Love
Carolyn

Susan - I'm soooo glad I didn't miss wishing you a wonderful, outstanding, undeniable BFP! My only symptom was cramps and I got them only with my BFPs. Hoping they are your sure fire sign as well. Have everyhting crossed (even the dogs' paws) for your BFP! Hope your sanity holds out until test day! xoxo

I want to wish all you 2ww'r wonderful BFPs. Carolyn, my embies were absolute crap (I hope they can't hear me!). My dd was a 4 celled embie and i had nooo hope of getting pregnant! Luckily my RE insisted on being positive (and with my mealy lot of embies that is saying ALOT) Don't lose hope.

I'm saying a special prayer for everyone!

Daly - Thank you. I was so thrilled to see that you are expecting twins. That is amazing news after all you have been through

Susan & Tracey - what you ladies up to? The sun is shining which is great

I am going to watch some of the Open golf on the TV. Booked to have a manicure and pedicure at noon. Then a bit more golf watch. Then meet my sister in town around 5pm. Have a bit to eat at the O2 and then enjoy the concert.

Little worried that I need to take my Clexane jab with me as need to do at 10pm. I'll have to sneak it in if they are doing bag searches!!!!

Hope that you are all having a relaxing weekend and trying to chill out.

Susan - have everything crossed for you for Monday.

Love
Carolyn

Hey girls!

Firstly, Susan, your 2ww is up tomorrow! I am so excited for you! Have you given in to the horrendous HPT? How are you feeling?

This 2ww is driving me crazy. The first 6 or 7 days I really felt that there was something going on. I had cramping and really sore (.)(.). Now, I feel normal although I have got 3 spots on my face which I havent had for 20 years! I am trying to stay up beat and just wait it out but I am starting to get stressed about what if I feel normal because I'm now not pregnant.
We are having a reallly big party on test day (28th July) so I have plenty to do to keep myself busy. I think I might test the day before so I dont have the trauma of dealing with the result the same day of our Renewal of Vows thing.
Otherwise I am just keeping myself really busy and trying to keep my mind off things which is a lot easier said than done. :lol:

Carolyn: sounds like you are pampering yourself and having fun! How was the concert? How did you get on "smuggling " in your injectables? You did make me giggle as I imagined the discussion you might have had to have with security!

Daly: Many thanks for your wishes and support. It is fantastic to hear about the success stories on these pages!

Susan: We are attending the John Radcliffe in Oxford. The staff there are fantastic but I kinda feel the protocol is pretty standard regardless of your history and it is disappointing that they dont do a preggo blood test. I know the HPT usually gives an accurate result but I think tracking your beta can help you relax or at least prepare you for bad news. We are private patients so I think I might ask if I pay extra can I have a blood test? What do you guys think?

I'll do an update list tomorrow so let me know where you are in the 2ww and I will add you in!

Susan, everything crossed for you tomorrow, please let us know when you get your news!

Susan - hope that you are feeling a bit better today. Take good care. Hope that you are just chilling today and being looked after.

Wishing you all the luck in the world for tomorrow and so hoping that it is a strong BFP for you.

I will be back at work tomorrow after 2 weeks off. 1 week of holiday and 1 week after transfer of working from home. But I will try to check for your news during the day

Tracey - Sounds like you have a lot on your plate next weekend with a renewal of vows. It will give you something to focus on for sure. I have gone the other way and kept next weekend totally 'free'. That way I can just stay under the duvet if I want to or dh and I can go out and get drink together. All my family and all of dh's family are away on holiday so we can really be left to deal with it all on our own. I feel just the same as you. No symptoms at all. What day transfer did you have? If it has not worked then I have always started bledding by D11 (Tuesday) so if I get beyond that then I will probably do a HPT. By Wednesday I will be 9 days past a D3 transfer and two weeks from the trigger shot so it should be out my system.

Concert was really good. Did no more than 'light' dancing. Great venue. Finally they have put the Dome to some good use. Loads of bars and restaurants plus two concert venues and an 11 screen cinema. Really cool. Although mad busy. We queued for 1/2 hour just to eat at Nandos! Was a little worried as they were checking bags on the way in but pills and injection were in a side pocket that they did not even check :oops: So just a quick nip to the loo at the end of the concert. Glad that I went. My sister had a great time and told me that she is moving in with her boyfriend which I am really pleased for her about. She is nearly 27 and has always seemed to go for the 'bad' guys in the past.

Just chilling today and enjoying my last day before I have to go back to work.

Thinking of you both. Susan - so hope that tomorrow is your day.

Love to you both.
Carolyn

Hello Ladies,

Sorry to 'but in' on ur 2ww thread, but i just wanted to wish u all the very best of luck...

Carolyn: U know im rooting for u hun :) xxx

Susan: A long time ago (last year) in Sept hope and dreams thread there was a lady on her 2ww who also complained about sore throat thru out her 2ww - its what stood out on ur posting for me - she got a BFP and suffered with her sore throat for a good while after -she also got sickness with it. This is why ur posting stood out for me, i had to come in and wish u well for ur test date tomorro - to me it sounds very positive :)

Good Luck to u all ....
