dagnymichelle - I updated the list with your info - 4 embies tranferred sounds like you have some pretty good chances of success! Your post about the shot instructions is still there - it is back on page 20 (at least per my browser). Let me know if you still can't find it and I can copy it and send to you.

NHY - Sorry - I think my use of shorthand was confusing, I had w/o 12/21 meaning "week of" 12/21. I've updated the list so that this is more clear.

Speaking of shorthand - I've forgotten what PUPO stands for???

No HPT yet. I think I am just going to wait for the blood test. I am too scared to do it. I want to keep the hope alive. Those HPTs always tell me no. I really don't like them.

I have been having a lot of cramping all weekend. Sometimes period crampish and sometimes a pinching in the lower right side of my abdomen. I am also really tired. I am trying so hard not to read too much into it. It is probably just the progesterone or my own mind :-)

I am trying to stay calm. I can't believe my beta is tomorrow.

How is everyone else holding up?

Hey Everyone... I had my ET this morning. It took us double the time to get there and back due to the snow storm we are having in Boston. But we made it safe and sound.
We transferred 2 blasts and I feel fine just a bit sleepy. Now the waiting begins!

wishing4baby - those sound like great symptoms!!! My last IVF I felt really crampy for about 3-4 days before my beta and it was positive. My fingers are crossed for you.

KMHTTC - I'm glad to hear you got back from your ET safely. Rest up today and let DH pamper you! :P

W4B - Good luck tomorrow. I'm with you - POAS is scary - not long to wait now for your beta though. Go BFP go!!!!!!!!! I may not be able to be onine all day tomorrow as I wished. Looks like we will have a 'break' in the weather. Today it is -7 with a windchill at -29!!! I was supposed to travel to Wisconsin with my sisters to see our grandma - but the wind is too strong for driving safely. And more snow is predicted. Oh bother.

Sisi1 and Annie973 - I think you've got it - thx! I always forget that one :lol:

Annie 973 - Good luck to you with your beta on Tuesday. You and W4B need to keep our BFP streak going!

ann d. - Have you had your ET yet? Or are you scheduled for Tuesday?

natashasmom - looks like you are well on your way too!

I am feeling good (2dp2dt) other than the cramps. The progesterone gives me horrible cramps. I have a massage scheduled for next weekend - but I was wondering if this is advisable in the 2ww. Does anyone know?

Hi Girls!

I just received news this morning that all 17 embies are alive and well. They didn't tell me the grade or anything but my RE says we are transferring this Tuesday. My DH and I are so happy upon hearing the news. I'm feeling really good about things right now. :D

Wishing 4 Baby and Annie973... Good luck on your Betas!!

W4B... I had similar feelings with the cramping and pinching feeling when I got my BFP! I'm hoping this is good news for you! I'm with you on the POAS thing. I never did it b/c I wanted to keep the positive vibes as long as possible. HOWEVER, this time I believe my Beta falls on the weekend and since the clinic doesn't do betas on weekends, I'm going to have to wait until Monday, January 5th. This puts me on the fence about POAS. I don't know if I can wait.

Sprouthaus... I would definitely call your clinic before the massage to see how your RE feels about the massage. It may not be a big deal, but you never know. Good luck on getting to your grandma's safely. Be safe!

KMHTTC... Congrats on the ET! I will be joining you on the 2WW soon!! :D

Hi girls!

Post by natashamom » Sun Dec 21, 2008 9:11 pm

Well,sprouthaus,I don`t think a massage is a good idea,maybe if it`s a very light one but as the other girl on here says,it`s always best to ask your RE,no question is never stupid enough,that`s my philosophy!!

Good luck to us all!

Natasha.

W4B good luck with the beta today!

Ann d. good luck with the ET! How many will you be putting back? How are you feeling?

As for me I had monitoring on Friday, Sunday, and again today. This is it ladies!!! I'm waiting for my RE to call this afternoon with my follie counts and hopefully tell me to trigger. I have no clue, she could tell me to reduce my GonalF and come in again for monitoring tomorrow... but I'm hoping to have ER Wed. instead of xmas day. In either case I'm totally pumped! I'll keep you posted.

Hi Ladies, I have a question re. bed rest during the 2WW. Are you guys planning or have done the bed rest and for how long? I just did my first 24 hours but am running out for an accupuncture appt then will come straight home to rest again. I am planning on resting again through tomorrow but then need to start getting ready for Christmas Eve.
Just wanted to get everyone's thoughts.
