Lot's of personals to do, I hope I don't forget anyone. Please forgive me if I do.
Johannanita - I pray you have some great follie growth. Grow follies GROW! Like you said, it only takes one!
Shelby - Has AF been nicer to you lately? What an absolutely wonderful anniversary gift a BFP will be! Start planning for it b/c I know this will be your time!
dtao - have you heard anything back from your interview? How are you feeling?
deftonesmoe - I'll be thinking of you tomorrow. good luck at your transfer!
Fitz - WOW, 23 eggies. that's great!
Lisa - My last scheduled FET was canceled due to high estrogen levels. I basically hadn't suppressed enough and had ovulated even though I was on BCP and Lupron. Good luck with everything!
Lady J - Awww, Thanks!
Yes, he is the one in the beige hat. How are things going with you?
Ruthie - I am sorry about your past cycles. I am praying for you. I can't imagine how hard this process must be for you. I'll keep you and your dh in my thoughts.
Kiwi- The big box of meds (or as someone else called it "baby in a box") can be overwhelming. The first injection will be the hardest but I PROMISE it will get easier. Most of the injections really aren't too bad.
Michele - too funny about the excel sheet! During my first cycle I had a giant desk size calendar taped to the kitchen wall. I feel like I'm gonna forget something this cycle too. You must be SO thrilled to be getting so close to having a transfer date! I am thrilled for you!
Turtle - I hope that this is the last AF you'll have for the next 9 or so months!!!
Katie - So sorry about the argument you and dh had. I think that this experience is much different for men. Not that it's any easier for them but different. I think we as women beat ourselves up more and blame ourselves for our body not being able to give us a baby naturally. Maybe you and dh needed to get it all out in the open. This can be such a difficult topic to discuss. I hope things are better for you now. I was in the same place as you about 2 years ago before my first IVF cycle. I was so resentful and angry at other women who were moms or who were preggo. I hope that you won't have those feelings for much longer. One day you will be walking your baby in a stroller in that beautiful place. I'll be thinking of you!
AFM, I am looking forward to my acupuncture appt. tomorrow. Only a few more weeks til my transfer! i am trying to be so hopeful but I am getting more nervous and anxious everyday that this FET won't work. I thought this round would be easier since I have been blessed with my ds in my first cycle. before I started I kept telling myself that it would be easier to accept a BFN since I have my little guy and I feel so blessed to have him. But now I am beginning to feel the same anxiety that I felt the first time around. Maybe even more. I was so confident during my first cycle and was lucky to have gotten my BFP right away. Thanks for listening ladies!
