. . . thanks yarnista. I feel really low at the moment. :cry: I know theres a way somehow to accept and be grateful and blessed for what we have and not need more - I'm just not in that place right now. I feel like I've thrown so much of myself at this (for so long) I don't know what else it will take. I guess all hope is not lost - but I feel very very close to AF right now. Am holding out testing again until Sunday when I will be 12dpo. At that point if its still BFN - I think I better start really preparing myself. I feel like I go through most of this alone too (thank goodness really for you ladies) and it overwhelms me at times. My DH is not as supportive as he could be. Ho hum. Chin up! :|

Blair, thinking of you today, let us know what happen!

Melmar, wow, how nice to have a big family like yours!

Melo, please don t test before at least 12dpo, if i would have tested one day before it would have been BFN. it really was a shadow of a shadow!!!so don t do that to yourself!!

Kizmet, yarnista, jersey jane, how you girls doing?

AFM,thanks for melo tip on the hpt website read that to get it more concentrated, you should not drink any fluid and not going to the toilet for at least 4 hours. Didn t drink all night! and what a surprise this morning a beautiful dark 2nd line!!!i am jumping around the house like crazy!!!!can t express what i feel. Going for beta now, i would let you know

Melo - You have a beautiful family. Maia is absolutely precious. Please don't be down on yourself, it really is early for a positive test. The feelings of AF you are having are not AF, she couldn't show up while you are taking the progesterone and estrogen. Chin up, these feelings you are having could be a good sign. P.S. you are beautiful so don't talk about yourself negatively. You have nothing to be negative about.

Itsmyturn - Yay, see you got your darker lines. Now stop testing and get your beta. Good luck and lots of babydust.

Kizmet - That is alot of horses, do you keep them all on your property or at some other stable?

Blair - Today is the day for you, please keep us posted. I am crossing my fingers for you.

Yarnista - I have always wanted to take up knitting. How did you learn?

AFM - I have my progesterone test this morning and my doctor said based on that they will see if they need to adjust my dosage. I feel fine today, a little achy but fine.

melo- What a beautiful looking family. And your daughter is absolutely adorable!! Try to stay positive. I agree with Jersey in that since you are on the Progesterone hopefully its a good sign.

itsmyturn- Yeaaaaaaa. So glad you refrained from fluids and ended up with a darker line. All that worrying for nothing. Good luck with the beta tomorrow- cant wait to hear high high it is!

Jersey-Hope your progesterone testing goes great and you can get back home to relax some more. I cant wait to join you in the 2ww.

yarnista- I checked out the blog- your stuff looks great!! Mine just looks so plain and boring compared to some of the stuff you can do. I love the little pants you made your daughter- too cute! Is this your first time doing accupunture? I have considered it before but always end up doing a massage instead.

AFM- only a few more hours of waiting. I am hoping more than anything that things look good and I am set for a transfer Tuesday afternoon. Soooo nerve racking waiting though. Best of luck to all and cant wait to hear more updates.

Hey girls,
itsmyturn: Congratulations!!!!!! That's so wonderful so happy for you!
blairwh58: Thanks for the compliments on my blog, guess I should get back to writing on there soon! I did accupuncture
with the cycle when we had a BFP with our daughter, so I'm a big believer in it. I just had my good friend over
who is a massage therapist, have yet to have her give me one, I'm dying to though!
jerseyjane: I learned to knit when I was 13 with my Grandmother then never did it until about 10 years ago I took a class at
a yarn shop and it's been my addiction since. I need the bumper sticker that reads, she who dies with the most
yarn wins, lol. Or the tshirt that says I knit so no one has to die, haha. If you lived closer to Ct I could teach
you! There's a great website called www.knittinghelp.com . So if you pick up some sticks and yarn and try you
tube too you could teach yourself or take a quick class.
ASFM: I'm doing well just trying to stay busy and remind myself not to pick up our daughter. I can't decide when to POAS
don't want to try too soon. I feel good, just a little tired and of course anxious. Sending good thoughts and prayers
to the rest of you. :D

Yarnista- I love massages. I don't get them as often as I would like but if it helps I'm all for it. I should have tried the accupunture this time but never know where to go. If your only addiction is knitting then I think you're fine. Maybe once day ill go get needles and will give it a try. Best of luck for the rest of your 2ww.

Jersey- how's your wait going?

AFM- great news...transfer scheduled for 12:30 on tuesday. Perfectly timed after our 11 o'clock couples massage. She said my lining was well on its way. Its only 8 now but she only wants it to be 9 so she said it looked great. Start doxycycline and prednisone tomorrow and PIO tonight. Only downfall to the appt was that I got a stitch in my cervix. Which I knew they did last time but I was under anesthetia so it didn't hurt. This time- it sucked! It was very uncomfortable even after the lidocaine gel that didn't work. Anyway- all is good and we are ready for Tuesday!!! Sooo excited!

Blair - I am so happy for you. My transfer was 12:30 as well, weird right? I am sure everything will go great. I can't remember if you told us but when were yours frozen day 3 or day 5 and how many are you planning on putting back in? As far as my wait goes it's fine. With my daughter you can't really lay around and relax but I did stay in bed most of yesterday. Today I have been doing stuff around the house, but nothing strenuous of course. I actually have been feeling a little crampy today so I am hoping that's a good thing. Since one of my blasts had just hatched the doc thought it would be ready right away to implant so lets hope it is. How long are you planning on doing bedrest if any that is?

Jersey- to be honest I'm not sure whether ours are 3 or 5 day because I know we have both. NP said today we will put 2 if they are good quality or 3 if they are just ok quality. As for my bedrest they say to do 3 full days of bedrest and to only go up and down stairs once a day. I'm off work tuesday and working from bed the rest of the week.

Blair, I am going to be at 12:00 Tuesday so I may be seeing you if my 5-day embryo makes it through the thaw process. I totally agree with you the stitch today hurt. I don't think the lidocaine jelly helped much at all. Have a great weekend and I may get to meet you Tuesday.
