Hi Riley1178 - congratulations! That is wonderful news.
Our beta is not until Friday, 5/22, but tonight I caved and took a HPT. This is our only shot at it, as we don't have any frozen ones in reserve, and we just can't spend any more money if adoption is going to be the end result, as that costs a ton of money too that we should be saving for.
In any event, I am 7dp5dt and it came out clearly negative.
It's weird - I am so positive in so many facets of my life, but not in this. I guess it's from 5 years of being told negative things every single time when it comes to anything "baby." I just can't imagine that I could hear something good. So I am totally negative about this whole thing. I have 3, count 'em 3!, day 5 blastocysts from a donor in me right now - with good lining and a fine uterus. Every stat I read is telling me we've got a really really good chance of having at least one in there, but I'm telling you - I don't feel good about it at all!
And this wait is unbearable. How can so many women/couples go through this? This is cruel and unusual punishment (I'm in the legal field! LOL) The future of my life and the planning of my family is out of my control and I can't learn about it for 3 more days. And I can't have a glass of wine to calm myself down either.
Thanks for listening. . . .and take care of yourself!
