W4B - I am so, so, so, so, so sorry to hear about your results. I can not even begin to comprehend how you must feel knowing that yet again you get so close...Please know that we are here to help you get through this - if you need to take time away, then do that. But we are here for you. I can't help but feel sad and angry for you/with you. Maybe it is the stress of the past few days (more on that later) or maybe it is just the stress of this process. ((((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))))))
NHY - Congrats on the scheduling of your ER - it does sound very auspicious to have this on Christmas day.
NY4thT - Welcome to the pincushion club
As for bedrest - my RE does not require any after ET, but she does recommend relaxing as much as possible. Additionally, she says no lifting anything over 15 pounds. Do other REs require this? I am wondering what the thought is behind this rule. I am especially worried because we've had a family emergency over the past two days and I've had to step in and help with my 23 month old niece. She is definitely over 15 pounds and I've had to lift her multiple times among other activities. I would've preferred to keep to the instructions for 2ww, but when I got the call that my 2 month old nephew was being rushed to the emergency room with some sort of neurological problem (stroke maybe, tumor maybe, hydrocephalous maybe) - I didn't think twice about stepping in to help with their daughter. My worry for my nephew has helped me put this whole fertility process in perspective (yet again) and I think I am better prepared for whatever result I get.
For anyone out there that is religious or spiritual, please put my nephew in your prayers. I am so worried for him.
Someone has their beta tomorrow - I can't remember off the top of my head - but good luck, baby dust and miracles to you!
