jmbella, I am sorry. I know how frustrating this must be for you. Hopefully the lab will get it figured out and call you first thing in the morning!

As for me, I went to the RE yesterday and we decided on my protocol. I start my BCP's as soon as AF gets here in about a week, then stop on the 7th. The 9th I go in for a visit and will begin stimming! ER will be somewhere in the third week of June and ET will be the 4th week from what we know so far. I am SO excited to finally be getting going. The RE said that he couldn't ask for better circumstances with DH and I, so we are praying that this is the one. :wink:

Jmbella- hang in there girl. That is terrible torture. Just the two hours I had to wait today had me anxious. I can only imagine how you feel.

Dallas- On the worry... I know!!! I only enjoyed it for about a half hour before I started thinking about the next Beta. I am going to try to relax and enjoy the pregnancy since I can't control the outcome.

Margi- you crack me up! Of course I would take time out of my busy day to tell you ladies. I told my husband, my mom and siblings, and then all of you. Let's face it...we are here for each other through this process in a way that our families and friends can't be. I couldn't wait to tell you all!

And thanks to everyone else for all your well wishing too!

Anton- Congrats on being PUPO. It was really sweet the way your DH surprised you.

Blis- Congrats on your BFP

AFM- Unfortunately bleeding got heavier, and we got a BFN. DH and I are taking time of to heal. We've been on this IVF rollercoaster for 3 years and now we're getting off. Maybe try Eastern medicine and just enjoy each other. Ladies thank you for all your support. I wish you well with your pregnancys.

Jmbella- wonderful news!!! Congratulations. Looking forward to going through the next 9 months or so with you. Of course it may be less for me if my high Beta turns out to be twins. :-) Looks like it was worth the wait. I haven't taken a HPT yet, I plan to do that tomorrow or Sunday so I can see that second line for the first time ever.

Heidi- I can't begin to tell you how sorry I am that you are not with us and how bad that feels. I have been in your shoes enough to know how much it hurts. All my best to you as you heal. We will keep you in our prayers.

Think I am starting with my first signs of m/s. Eventhough it is worse midday and evening. Food doesnt look good to me, I usually eat sweets like crazy.. totally dont want them. No vomiting yet, just really nauseous at intervals. But thats ok, I welcome it. If I am having m/s it will ease my mind until my u/s, in 6 days.

Anton- just catching up on the email and I noticed your question about how I told DH. Given that I am far away from home, I called him. When he answered the phone, I couldn't speak for almost a full minute. I then got choked up and then finally said "we're pregnant." Then it was his turn to go silent. He was very confused and thought that we couldn't really be pregnant until after the second Beta. I explained to him that the second Beta is just the first in a series of tests and appointments we will have that will cause us to fret and that we are indeed pregnant. He then got very emotional.

Last night when we talked though he was having a very difficult time. I think he is overwhelmed. Plus he is very worried because the last BFN was so tough on me. I think right now all he can think about is me being crushed if it doesn't work out and he is having a difficult time getting excited about it. Monday should be better. I completely understand where he is coming from, but like I told him...we need to embrace every moment of this blessing.

Greekchick. Congratulations!!! Can't wait to hear the fert report. On bedrest... this time I took only the day after the transfer off and I was not on strict bedrest. In fact, I sat in a lounge chair and watched about 6 hours of stand-up comedy on my iPad. I laughed all day and accidentally got a sunburn! In the past I always obsessed about getting pregnant, this time I thought I'd keep it light and positive...and it worked. I went back to normal activity the next day.
