Crissylove- we actually had only interviewed agencies but had not applied. They won't allow you to officially go on the waiting list if you are still actively trying to conceive (which I didn't know in the early days of researching adoption). I do think that if God blesses me with one of my own, I will likely adopt a second. I really like the idea of adopting, plus I am not sure if I could handle another go at IVF for a sibling.

Yeah. I hear you on repeating IVF-soooo stressful. I'm still debating still about the sibling issue myself, and if I wanna endure the probable heartbreak with just one frosty. So for now, let's just enjoy this pregnancy and be ever so grateful. KMFX. For ur betas today.

Congrats Blissful.. if you look at my betas, they didn't exactly double from day 16 to day 18. Your betas are good. Can't wait for you ultrasound. I am sooooo happy for you and your DH.

Bliss: my clinic says a beta should double every 72 hours, not 48. With that, you have excellent betas! Mine certainly didn't double every 48 hours, and everything is progressing just fine. So, CONGRATS! :P

Hello all.

I have been away and I apologize for not being here to support everyone. This process has been so tiring this time and I have struggled to come here and be Polly Positive.

Please pray for us. Tomorrow we go for ET. We have 9 fertilized DE. They were able to biopsy all 9, even though 2 were growing slower than the others. My RE is so very excited about the numbers and called me 3 times on ER day. Tomorrow morning we will find out for sure what our numbers are, but we are very hopeful that we will get some frosties as well as 2 for transfer tomorrow.

I have been an emotional wreck the past few days. No real reason, just the whole process I think. I'm just so tired, KWIM?
DH has been an absolute angel through it all. I am feeling better tonight and trying to stay upbeat for tomorrow. Planning 2 days of bed rest, because, well, because I deserve it, lol.

Much love and baby dust to all here. I will try to update tomorrow.

Becca

Wehavehope,

Will be keeping you in my thoughts tomorrow. Our ET is set for tomorrow also. 12:00 noon.

Hoping things go well for both of us.

Becca- hang in there. It really is worth it! Good luck tomorrow. and remember, we are always here when you need us. Sometimes its tough to keep up...both emotionally and balancing the time. We know how it is.

Wehavehope- only two more sleeps! I am so very excited for you. Can't wait to hear you are PUPO.

Thanks Blair,We, Fun, and Crissy. Its still so surreal!

AFM- no more blood work. The clinic was thrilled with the numbers. Like Mamaboo said, they look for doubling every 48 to 72 hours. My doubling rate is 2.2 days, very good! I am thrilled. Still have a long way to go, but I am breathing a little easier tonight. They want me in for u/s anytime b/w the 1st and the 7th. I will keep you posted.

Becca & WeHaveHope- Best of luck tomorrow at your ET. You will both be PUPO before you know it. Try to relax and take it all in.

Bliss- Woo hoo for no more blood tests. I thought the numbers looked great so Im glad the clinic was thriled with them too. Now the horribly long wait for the US...which Im not going to lie I think is worse than the 2ww. The 1st isnt too far away so my fingers are crossed they can get you in sooner. Cant wait to see how many beans you have in there.

Everyone-thank you for all of your support and well wishes.

Becca-how did everything go today. I am sending you lots of sticky baby dust.

AFM-I am scheduled to have the FET tomorrow at 10:30am. I received a call from the nurse today wanting to verify that we were having an elective one embryo transfer. For those that have read my past posts, you know that we have felt quite strongly about this for quite some time. The topic has come up again within the last week. However, I can tell you that the concern that we have of having multiples definately outways the fear of this cycle not working. So, we will only have one frosty put back tomorrow. I found out yesterday that due to age and the recommendation of putting back two, my frosties were stored in twos'. This means that they will thaw the two tomorrow, pick the best of the two and refreeze the second one. One thing that we had been pretty adamant about which was that this was going to be our last try has been brought to the table for reconsideration. We are considering trying one more time if this does not work this time. I don't want to think that way but want to be realistic at the same time. I am hopeful that this will be the one!!!

We, I am praying for you. Sending good thoughts that everything goes well with your FET tomorrow. Please take care of yourself and update us when you can.

AFM....Out of 9 fertilized we had 2 perfect blasts. One boy and One girl. Both are inside me now, looking for a soft place to land. Stick babies stick. Really have a good feeling about this one. I'm so glad my RE talked us into the genetic testing. I really feel we will have a BFP this time. We will take one, but two would be wonderful.

Right now my feet are propped up and I'm resting, resting, resting. 2ww is going to be torture.
