Indigo- I am so sorry. I know that we can't really ease the pain right now but over the past few weeks I have learned that you are a very strong person so I know in time you will be able to move on. I am glad DH was home with. my thoughts are with you in this challenging time. Keep your head up.

Skatiedrew- I am on my phone right now but next time I go to update the list I will definitely add you. Much like you I stocked up on dollar store tests just to get me through the 2ww. Did you do fresh or frozen? The earliest I've gotten a + was 8dpo...I haven't started testing yet but will soon to make sure the trigger shot is out of my system. Good luck to you.

Hi ladies!!!! I've tried to submit 2 long posts and they both haven't posted and I can't find them. I will try to post again to all of you.

Blair - I'm so excited for you!!!!!!!!! 10 is HUGE!!!! I know you are disappointed for the additional 2 day wait but its totally worth the wait. You've got a great mix of cells and growth there. It only takes one so consider you have 9 for back up. Things are going to go awesome for you. I know this is going to work for you. Keep positive and have faith, now is the time!!!! I'll keep you in my prayers.

Hopeful - congrats on your pregnancy! It seems to me that the Dr wasn't too worried about the progesterone so I wouldn't be either. Relax and enjoy your pregnancy and keep the PMA!!!

Crissy - OMG!!!! Thank God most importantly that you and the baby are ok. Make sure you rest the next couple of days as you will het 'new' post accident aches for a few days.

Nicnad -don't get down on yourself. Every pregnancy is different and all symptoms vary. Don't give up, without hope we are nothing. We are all here for you!!!! Keep positive!

Katieb - this whole infertility thing is very stressful on every relationship. We all need to have very strong partners to support us. On my first round with fertility I didn't have any support from my husband and my marriage ended in divorce. Now, I couldn't ask for a stronger support than my DH.this process makes us physically, emotionally and financially distressed essentially we give up who we are in order to make our dream of being a mom come true. would definitely ask the RE for a definite plan with comparable statistics of real couples. I believe you have ever right to demand for answers. I'll be thinking of you and know that we are here for you. Please keep us posted.

Indigo - I am so sorry for your test result! It's terrible and a true test of our sanity when we put all our hopes and the negative comes back. Please stay strong spend some quality time with DH. You have one left and have options. It seems you have an advantage over all this being that you know the ins and outs of pregnancy. Please hang in there, and we are here for you. I send you a big
hug!!!!!!

Wehavehope - not sure this will help but I offered it to Blair and she got AF 2 days later can't be certain it was the infusion. I've done it in the past and it has worked. Take 5 to 6 cinnamon sticks in a quart of water and bring them to a boil. Let that water settle and cool covered. Sweeten the infusion with honey or sugar to taste and drink several cups. Hope this helps! It's an old wives tale that all the ladies in my family have put to use at one time or another.

I will keep you all in my prayers!!!!!!!! Cyber hugs to you all!

Indigo... so sorry... it just sucks doesn't it... everything we go through for something that is so easy for so many...

No I am not POAS. I have too many memories of being disapointed and that wasn't with IVF or FET, just in the 2 years it took us to naturally conceive our DS in 2004. I am ok to wait until tomorrow, but I don't expect a BFP. It's just a gut feeling... I'm so sure that I even drank some coffee this a.m....

Blair: So happy for you! We will all anxiously await your results...

What I'm feeling today is some anticipation for May 4th... That was my due date when I got the BFP with IVF last August... In our entire fertility journey, I was grateful to never have had a mc and go through that... Now I see that date approaching and I get a lump in my throat.. brings back all the happy feelings we had when we thought that IVF had worked... Have others who have mc struggled with that date as it approached?

Anyway, gonna watch Desperate Housewives tonight... a good diversion...

Bonsoir... (g'night)

U girls are all so sweet & make me feel like you are giving me a great big group hug.....It's funny with each other MC I could not wait to get on with it again....with this one I am on the fence.....I just can't wrap my arms around the disappointment again...DF (Darling Family) & I had a wonderful weekend just the three of us hanging out doing projects & just feeling like a happy family just the three of us...it was nice.

Blair so happy you are going to 5dt awesome!!! Congratulations!!!

NicNad1 - I am with you for Desperate Housewives the quirkier the better for me! I am praying for your BFP tomorrow.....I am praying with every ounce of my being that you will be giving us some good news very soon....

Indigo - Just cause you got a HPT BFN doesn't mean blood will come back that way too, happens all the time depends on the concentration of your pee & what you ate & how your body metabolizes HCG......so please don't give up hope until you have the blood results....I am praying for you too!

Thanks Pumpkin - I never went thru IF with my ex-husband but if I had it would have been horrible and that would have caused us a divorce for sure! But this one he's a keeper he was just voicing his opinion & I am happy he did it was good for us to get it on the table, you are very right this whole thing makes for a very strong couple for sure.

Bliss - I know you (and everyone here) knows how I feel I kept up with your posts as you went thru your BFN...it sucks no matter what.....I just hope this WTF appt gives me clarity & helps me to decide what to do.........

I know I forgot some of you all but know I am reading often thinking of you every day and praying with you all for a positive outcome for your journey's......it's funny I think of you girls every day & feel so much love & pride in my heart for each one of you & I have never even met you all in person or seen some of your faces....xoxo

Indigo-I know words can't even begin to console you or express how you're feeling. I can only encourage you to take one day at a time. I'm hoping that FET will be more successful for you than fresh like so many other women. I recently read that some women have better luck with FET because the lining is better prepared and because there's no stimming involved. I will hope and pray that your dreams will soon become a reality as I do for you all.

Blair-Congrats on the health of so many wonderful day 3 embies. I've heard the like to see at least some 6,7,and 8's and boy did you have a lot of those. Mazel.

EOE-I hope you're finding something positive in each day to keep you inspired and determined.

Oh indigo! I am so very sorry for how you are feeling right now and know nothing I can say will make it hurt any less. Crissy is right though, you really don't know until tomorrow. I know it sort of stinks to hear that because you are just sort of ready to know and move on and you have to try to hope for one more day, when all we really want in this crazy process is a little clarity. Thinking of you and praying my heart out for you tonight. Great big hugs to you.

Crissylove- I feel like jerk that I forgot to mention in my earlier post that I am so sorry about your accident but so glad you are okay. You just can't catch a break from the drama in this pregnancy of yours can you? :D Its okay though because you keep prevailing despite it all!

AFM- Had an amazing weekend with DH despite my team losing to Connecticut last night. The good news is that Blair and I are done going on and on about basketball. :D I go in for b/w tomorrow and the SHG Tuesday. Wednesday is our first appointment with an adoption agency. We have a big baby week ahead of us! Have a great night all.

indigo- I agree with bliss and crissy....you shouldnt give up hope just yet. My fingers are crossed that you go in today and just had a late implanter that wasnt producing enough hcg to be picked up on a HPT. Keep us posted and good luck.

nicnad- Good luck to you today. Hopefully you have some good news for us.

bliss- yea it was a sad loss. Whats even worse is since we are in KY my sister kept asking if I would drive to lexington with her on sunday or monday since it would be so crazy there. In the back of my head I knew it would be easier if they lost so I wouldnt have to make up a story as to why I needed to stay home- given at the time I thought I would be on bedrest. Hopefully we will have another good season next fall. Exciting that you get to go in for BW and your SHG is coming up. Not to mention the adoption appt- what an exciting week for you!!

crissy- How are things going with you? Still recovering from the accident? Hope you are doing well.

katie- Thanks for the support. I know its hard despite what you are going through so I really appreciate it. Im glad you and the family were able to have a nice weekend.

pumpkin- I keep telling myself it only takes one but am sooo nervous that something will happen and we wont have any babies to transfer tomorrow. I need to stay positive and know that this is the cycle!!

AFM- Still waiting for the office to call with my transfer time tomorrow. I am going to run out and have my pre-transfer acupuncture session and hopefully feel a little more relaxed. Just anxious to bring my babies home tomorrow!

I have a daily quote calendar and forgot to post one I thought applied to our situations:

"We can do whatever we wish to do provided our wish is strong enough. What do you want most to do? That's what I have to keep asking myself, in the face of difficulties."

Good luck to everyone!!

Bliss-You must be feeling so much excitement and anticipation for this week ahead. I'm so happy that you have some things to look forward to. You seem destined and determined to have the baby you so richly deserve. You go "Mama"!

Blair-I want to be the first to say good luck on your ET tmrw. I hope you get a good final report/count and have some nice ones left to freeze. How many do you intend to put back?

...and btw I'm sorry about the KY loss you guys. I was pulling for you. I seems like they just lost the wind in their sails by the last part of the half. They're young so you guys can look forward to a few nice years ahead of KY dominance.

Officially negative. And the tears start rolling uncontrollably. I just don't understand??? These were donor sperm and my eggs. I have PCOS...women with PCOS get pregnant all the time. So frustrating!
