Melinda:),
Glad to know I'm not alone on the whole cramping thing. It's freaky, but I keep telling myself (or trying to) that people have said it's normal. It's just hard! :?

Yes stephanievt97, I agree, just make sure alcohol is dry..and you insert the needle straight. I think I did it crooked once, and it burned and I bruised.
I still have cramping..I feel exactly before I start AF, so I'm not sure how this is going to end up..Hope for the best I guess
How you feeling Melinda:)? What about you Mimi77?

melinda, only 2 more days! you must be so excited...just hang in there and take good care of yourself.

mandyluckypants, i'm so sorry to hear of you losses...that must be so devastating...good luck this time around and keep us posted as to when things are happening.

fhl, i think cramping is okay and normal. back in 2004 when i got bfp i even spotted the night before test, i thought for sure i was bfn...healthy 2 yr old now! just hang in there.

stephanie, how are the shots going? when do you start stimming?

i had my xfer yesterday. as you may recall we had 3 out of 12 to choose from. we were brought into re's office (never have had this done before xfer) he wanted to talk about the quality and the possiblity of xfering all 3. he doesn't typically do that for people under 35, but because all of our embies are fair at best, he thought it wouldn't hurt. so we had all 3 xfered...the procedure went flawlessly. embies were...7, 6, and 4 cells all grade 3 (fair) should be btwn 6-10 cells on day 3. i'm trying so hard to stay hopeful! our son was a product of a grade 3 either 6 or 9 cells, so i guess it's possible! oh, this is too much, isn't it? how do we get through this over and over again? disappointment after disappointment...god please answer all of our prayers. thinking of all of you and knowing exactly how you are feeling.

Hi ya'll!
What a beautiful California day here!
Melinda:), good to know you are doing good. I haven't experienced any of the discharge. Just still those icky cramps. I was supposed to get my news Tuesday as well, but I had to postpone to Wednesday. I guess it may work out better. DH birthday is Tuesday, and I don't want to be a party pooper if it's a BFN. So...Halloween is my day. I'm being very optimistic about this. I know cramping is considered normal, but sometimes it's hard to imagine that when I feel this way each month! AAaa, Mimi77 you are right...we sure do put ourselves through alot! I sure hope the best for you this month! I would have done all 3 too, so I think you made a good choice. When do you test?

MandyLuckyPants--good luck Tuesday!! All you need is one! I'm so sorry you lost twins. I had early miscarriage at 6 weeks in 2005. It was so early a heartbeat wasn't detected, I believe the term "blighted ovum" was used.It was emotionally devestating.

stephanie how are you doing with the Lupron? I got really lucky with no side effects, so I hope you are too.

One more day for you Melinda:)!!!! Send us some good news please! Let us know as soon as you can! :D I'm crossing everything for you! Have you been feeling any "different"?

I go in today for my 1st beta, my 2nd Wed. What they do is they freeze todays and test them both Wed. to see if HCG is going up, down, or none at all. I'm not feelin' it though. I don't even want to go! I had BAD AF cramps in the middle of the night for about a half hour. :cry: AGH. Helping me is knowing that I have 6 perfect frostie blasts waiting for a warm home :)

mimi77 how are you feeling???? You about done on your bedrest?
