Anton - first of all - I love your attitude. I agree that we might as well be positive, because being negative doesn't help anything at all. But sometimes it's so hard. About the dog - we decided we wanted to get the puppy before we had the baby. So we got a puppy right after we started TTC.... our puppy is 3 years old now and still no baby! I'm so glad we got him first - otherwise we'd still be waiting for our baby AND our puppy!
Tammy - I stalk you on Facebook too and your mini-vacation sounds AMAZING! Sorry you got snowed in though. I was trying to explain to people here how dangerous driving in the snow is, but they don't get it. If (big *if*) it snows, everything here shuts down. No one goes to work. No one drives. Everyone just goes out and plays in the snow!
Jeib - I agree with some other ladies - if you want to go to the baby shower, then go. But feel free to leave early - or even beg off 'sick' or 'busy at work'. Luckily in Judaism, no one does baby showers, but I do have to deal with new babies. A friend of the family is having a boy any day now and we are expected to go to the circumcision ceremony (bris). Depending on what news we get and when, we may not want to go. Hopefully people will understand.
Lou - YAY!
See, crazy pregnant lady, everything is fine! Woohooooo! What's next? Just waiting another 8 months to meet him or her?
Kat - I'm glad to hear you are starting again, as hard as it is. I hope AF is timely!
nwquiz - you got it to work! (or at least your assistant did, you celebrity!) How did your IUI go? Should I move you to the 2ww?
HopethisworksM - how was the second beta?
Ashley - my clinic also doesn't care when I do my first u/s (either at 5 weeks - or anytime after that). The longer you wait, the more you will see -- so the question is always how long I can hold out! Thanks for the puppy compliment! He always has his little nose sticking out - DH calls it a 'periscope nose'
Lauren - WTF? Denied? UGH. Can you get a medical opinion that gives you higher chance than 5% and then the insurance will do it?
Tiger --- I know that it was too early to see anything - but now I'm confident that if I see a line on any of my other (secret!) HPTs, that it's for real. I'm not peeing today (8dpo) because I know there's no trigger and it's still way early. Maybe Friday... Sounds like that estradiol REALLY worked! Woohoo!
Kristin - I always thought people who thought of their dogs as people were a little weird, but now I have a dog who is TOTALLY part of the family and really like our 'furbaby'! March 3 will be a good day (my beta day too!)
Kynlee - congrats on the new Godson! I know it's hard to be around newborns when you are trying so hard to have your own, but maybe this will be on your way to your BFP!
deftonesmo--- I really feel like I *should* hold out to POAS until next week (the earliest I've gotten a BFP is 7dp5dt - which would be Sunday). I want to pee again on Friday (10dpo), but I know that's still too early...-- congrats on Triggering!
Nicole - that's AWESOME! My beta with twins was 450 at 17dpo - so you've got a really good high number. Enjoy Hawaii!
Sherry - how long a FET is depends on your protocol. I start BCP when I get AF the cycle before (usually a BFN). Then I stop, get AF and start estradiol tablets (orally, 2mg x 3/day). Usually, FET is 3 weeks later.
LYD - just one more day.... no urges to pee on a stick? - update us as soon as you know!
Margi - sorry about your headache. I hope you got some relief from that. 18 follies? That's great! Have a great flight tomorrow!
AFM-- this is the hardest part of the 2ww... far enough away from the ET but not close enough to the beta.... 3dp5dt today.... I want to know already! No inklings at all, but I never have....
