Indigo and nicnad I am so very sorry!!! Let those tears roll indie! let that wine flow nicnad! It's so painful but the pain will slowly pass (after it gets a little worse first of course). It's not fair! But just remember it's not permanent either. We all have a lot of blessings in our life and will someday move beyond infertility even if it is not when and how we imagine. We're here for you when you want to express the anger, hurt, and fear.

Love and hugs,

Bliss

Crissylove- I agree the Cats have a very bright future. It should be a fun few years. They were tired for sure, and Knight needed to settle down. Just a young team doing what young teams do. Tonight will be a good game. Pulling for the Bulldogs in this one. I think it's their time.

Bliss...hmmmmm. Tough choice. ET or hanging out on campus after a Kentucky championship? I've done both...I was there in 96 when we won and it was unforgettable. But a baby certainly has it beat! Best of luck, baby dust, and much love to you for tomorrow. We'll anxiously be waiting to hear you are PUPO!

Thank you ladies for the good wishes- I am still nervous that history will repeat itself. But a good friend told me that everytime a worry or negative thought pops in to say a prayer. I will try anything!

Indigo/Nicnad -I am so sorry that this cycle didn't work for you two, It SUCKS, it really does. But we all here for you!

Katieb - hang in there you will strength soon- My sister bought me a necklace that has all words of strength all over it- I have worn every day since Christmas(when she gave it me)I think its really helped me.

Thank you so much for all the support. My prayers are with everyone on here. I had a wonderful time in church yesterday and afterward I had an inner urge to test. I did and got a BFP. I went for my 1st beta today (9dp3dt). I had an ectopic last year and that really frightens me. Next beta is Wed.

Skatiedrew- CONGRATS!!!! I finally added you to the list and got to put you under the BFP section! Did you get the beta results from today or do they made you hold out?

Hopeful- funny you mention the necklace. My friend gave me a bracelet for Christmas to wear every day of this cycle and has some beads and the word strength. Every time I start to get frustrated I look down and know I have to push through.

Nicnad- Im so sorry that things didn’t work out for you this time. I hope you are able to enjoy your coffee and wine. We visited Italy last spring and have decided not to open our Lemon cello until we can finally bring a baby home with us. Good luck and stay strong.

Rio- Thanks for crashing. I am getting very anxious and nervous about tomorrow. The fact that they didn’t call me until 1:30 today drove me up a wall. I am hoping to put in 3 blasts….but I know the doctor only wants to do 2 so I guess we will see.

Indigo- Don’t give up. A close friend of mine has PCOS and struggled through 6 IVFs before bringing home her little boy last October. As hard as it seems now just know it will happen.

bliss- I agree that getting pregnant would take precident over driving to lexington anyday. Yea I have no doubt it would have been fun but no alcohol for me anyway which makes for a little less fun.

Crissy- Thanks for cheering for us but like you said…young teams make young mistakes. This season we were known for blowing it in the final 2 minutes. I am hoping to put in 3 tomorrow but will have to see how much of a fight the RE gives.

AFM- Almost bedtime then I get to wake up and drive to go bring home my babies. Had my pre-transfer acupuncture today and will go for the post transfer visit tomorrow on the way home. Soooo excited and anxious for tomorrow though. Took a HPT just to make sure trigger was gone and it is so bring on the BFP!!

Sorry, no more personals, but I have been relate sick with a cold. I went to work yesterday and was coughing and sneezing all day. I got home exhausted.

I wish I had something new to report but I don't. My RE comes back today from out of town. I spije to the nurse yesterday and she said that I will be receiving a call from the office today. As of this morning, no AF yet. I am now on day 12 after my last Privera pill. I am also on day 27 of my cycle as my last AF was on March 10th.

Sending lots of hugs and plenty of baby dust to all :D

Thanks to everyone for all the support. We are leaving Cincy now and I am finally PUPO!!! It went great and I am thrilled to finally be in the 2ww. We were able to convince the doctor to transfer what he called 2 perfect blasts and 1 that was in the pre-blast stage. So we were able to transfer 3 which makes me feel sooo much beter. I was worried the RE would argue that given the age and good quality we should only do 2...but since this is attempt #4 and the risk of triplets is only 3% I won!! On our way back home for acupunture then bedrest for 3 days. Soooo excited.

Way to go Blair! Good for you putting up a fight. Congrats on being Preggo with triplets momma!

I'm waiting to go in for my SHG. Ugh! Jealous of you right now. I'd much rather be PUPO!

Bliss- the SGh really isn't too bad- especially considering everything you've already gone through. Just a little discomfort. I think they recommended I take some tylenol/ibuprofen before hand which may help. Good luck and keep us poster on how it goes.

BLAIR - I'M SO EXCITED FOR YOU! I can't believe your ET already came and went now! You are PUPO. Please rest and follow all the recommendations. I can't wait for your BFP, I know this is it!!! I wish we would've beenon the same cycle :( but you'll be preggo and can send me some preggo vibes :D

Bliss - it really isn't that bad just a little cramping after, if that. You'll your doing the right thing to show that you're ready to try one more time and bring your baby home!!!!!

AFM - on BC still, have an appointment with the nurses on Thursday for a preliminary calendar. Actually want to get things going and down with....want answers as to whether I'm going to be a mom or not. I don't want to continue to put my life on hold on the hopes of what if......Not sure any of you can relate or are understanding me but it's just one of those days. DH already has twin boys that I see all the time but".........as much as I love them and they love me people don't understand they aren't mine. :( I remember that my mother-in-law (who I don't think truly loves me) once told me God never gave you your own kids so he put you in my sons life to love his kids. She doesnt know if i want to have my own or not just made that assumption. That's always bothered me. Sorry about that I just opened up to you all that i don't physically know but feel like I've known for ever and am comfortable with. I'm a bit teary now so I'll stop.

I'm going to exercise and sweat the negatives out.

Love you all!

Well folks- apparently my uterus is beautiful and perfectly smooth. Also interesting is that despite supposedly having the crashed cycle, I have a big beautiful 18 mm follie that is about to release an egg any moment. This means I am due for AF in 2 weeks or so which is GREAT news because if that is the case I can transfer even sooner. So it looks like we are looking at the first week of May now. Scared to change my ticker again though because I don't want to scare AF away. What a crazy cycle! Glad it worked out that I could get the shg early and still be ready to go this next "real" cycle.

Part of me wanted to reach through that screen and grab the maturing egg and fertilize it. :-) :-) :-)

Pumpkin- I am right there with you this cycle. Starting the adoption process has made me feel even more like I need a crystal ball to tell me whether or not this will ever work so I can heal and move on with my life. Stay strong and keep up the hope. And just remember nobody can guarantee you anything, you have to follow your own heart.

I let the tears roll again tonight myself. I grew very close to my acupuncture practitioner over the last many months and I saw her for the first time tonight since the BFN. I have cancelled several appointments, just wasn't ready to deal with it yet. I wasn't on the table for 5 minutes before the floodgates opened. It was a good, releasing cry though. I needed it. I think its a sign its time for me to start meditating again to deal with the pain and get mentally prepared for my BFP. :-)

Blair- one more time...I am CRAZY excited for you being PUPO! This is it girl! It is definitely time for you to become a momma. Prayers, hugs, and love to you tonight. P.S. I just notice I called you Bliss last night. :-) People have mixed our stories up before because of the name similarity, but I never imagined I would do it myself. Too funny!
