I was reading the posts and just wanted to say:
Dogz- That is awesome!!! I am so glad that you got the results that you wanted! That is truly amazing and I am glad it came through!

Jamie- that is truly a blessing! That is so amazing!!! How lucky!

tunieczka- I know that the two week wait can be a pain and I do understand about waiting. I think I did 5 hpts so far. I was buying in bulk! There are no words to make the time pass other then try to stay busy and keep your mind on other things, easier said then done. You did come to the right place, this place has helped me through the 2ww!

Katie- I am sorry that you are going to have to wait longer. Grow follies grow! I hope that the time flies for you!

AFM
I have my BETA on Thursday and I still feel the need to do hpts. I did another one today....... Still trying to keep my mind busy but seems time does not go quick enough....... I wish the best for everyone and everyone is in my prayers. As for those with a pos bfp I wish you a wonderful and healthy pregnancy!

Dogz- Freakin' unbelievable! When you asked me to change your status on the list to bfn, I just couldn't bring myself to give up hope like that, so I put the question marks, holding out hope for you today...and I am going back right now and changing it back to the bfp it should be! I am so happy for you, and just remember that miracles do happen!

Michele - Thank you so much. I saw the question marks you had put instead of a BFN and was truly touched. I wasn't expecting that. My nurse called me a little while ago and said she was so shocked and didn't know what to say. I'm still numb. Thank you to ALL of you who have been praying, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I know God heard every one of you.

For those on the 2ww, it is miserable, but hang in there!!! I did NOT POAS, and I do not regret it for one second. I was too terrified!

rikirees - OMG that is a LOT of follies!!!! :shock:

jamie - That is truly wonderful news, I am so happy for you!!

Anissa - Do not worry about the spotting. I spotted for almost a week!!!

Dogzrule: I've been waiting on your post all day and when I finally read it I was soooo happy. There was a scripture that got me through my first IVF cycle and I hope it can help you:
Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.


I think all of us on the board was saying a prayer for you all weekend. I am glad you received such good news today.

Dogz I do find it comforting that so many of u with BFP have spotted but I am kinda starting to get really nervous. Warning TMI: I went to the restroom and every time I wipe, it is either really dark brown and 2 times it was bright red! Did you have anything similar to that? I was doing really good in the 2ww until today when I started spotting. I just don't understand why my body won't keep my embies growing! Sorry to be such a downer!

Thanks for listening to me!

Tryn4 - THANK YOU for the prayer. It brings me comfort.

Thank all you ladies for listening!

Anissa - I know EXACTLY how you feel. Even though everyone, including my doctor, told me it is normal (almost to be expected) to spot, I hated it. It made me panic!!! And yes, it was every time I wiped too. Just keep telling yourself, as I did, that THIS IS NORMAL. Keep repeating it and taking deep breaths my dear.

I am REALLY anxious to hear from Julie!!! :shock:

geckogirl - You're post made me smile SO big. I could actually picture you jumping up and down for me. :lol:

tryn - I have that verse, along with Romans 4:17 and 4:20 written on a sheet of paper. Those verses mean so much to me right now!!!

Dogzrule: Awesome news! I'm jumping up and down for you in spirit!

Sunnygirl
: My name is Tia aka tortillachip...a nickname I had when I was a kid :D Good luck tomorrow! I'll be thinking of you too.

Anissa: I agree with dogzrule that it's completely normal. Try to calm yourself down when you get panicked. It could be from implantation, from the uterine lining, etc. I'm thinking of you.

To all you others I'm sorry I can't sned personals to all of you...gotta get some rest now. I'm off to bed to get some rest and then to get my bloodtest in the morning. Please say a prayer for me tonight and/or tomorrow. Thank you!

Good Morning Ladies!!

This is an awesome group, so much support, understanding, love, positive vibes, etccc!! Really a place where one can come and get hope! I visit this forum at least 4/5 times a day if not more!! You guys really understand what we are going through.

Dogzrule, that is amazing news and your story certainly gives hope for alot of us! I wish you all the best !!!!

I am going back tomorrow for another check to see if follies are growing. On Sunday there were none after 8 days of stimming. Eventhough it is hard, but i am trying to remain hopeful that a miracle will happen for me!

Congratulations to all the BFPs and let those BFPs coming!!!

All the best and good luck to everyone else and I amso glad for this wonderful forum!! You guys are amazingggggggggg

Hello ladies
I have been following this thread over the past two weeks since my BFP to see what you're all up to.
Dogz, I am sooooo delighted for you! Your story really lifted my spirits.

Unfortunately, i went for the 6 week scan and they couldn't detect a sac - doc said it's an early miscarriage. Now I'm just waiting to bleed.
It's utterly heartwrenching - having had the elation of being pregnant- to then find out all your worst fears have been confirmed. Also it's hard telling people who already knew we were pregnant. All of it is pretty devastating, but I guess you just have to keep going.
I guess at least I can bring on the chardonnay for the rest of the summer!

Anyway I just want to say to you lovely ladies, keep up the PMA and best of luck with everything - and just keep the faith!!
Xxx

Starwishes You are in my prayers. I can't imagine the pain you are feeling, but keep praying and know you are in all our thoughts and prayers. I am sure it is hard to break the news to those who knew, but hopefully that will only provide you with more support and love at this time.

Dogz I was so sad for you this weekend. Everyone kept saying to hold out and expect miracles. But when you said it was hopeless, I admit I didn't expect good news. Wow...this just shows you God's power and encourages all of us to never give up hope no matter how bad things look. Like so many people said...miracles happen and it's true! Congrats!!!
