Hi Ladies! Sorry I've been so MIA....work has been crazy and been working long days (life of an accountant I guess!)

Anton - Congrats on PUPO mama!! So glad you had 1 perfect blast to transfer, it only takes 1 and this is your time to shine and have your dream come true! :D Make sure the DH cooks some fabulous meals for you these next few days so you can keep those feet up!

Fruit - Congrats as well on being PUPO!! Transferring 2 sounds great (on top of that they were AA blasts!) You brought your embabies home and sending you tons of sticky vibes these next 2 weeks :P

Longtime - Glad your behind is starting to feel better! I as well have a really sensitive stomach when it comes to medications and I always just try to stick to bland dry foods and sometimes that seems to help with the sentivity. Glad to hear you are still feeling great otherwise! 8)

Akdelp - So sorry to hear about the bleeding, but like the others say, dark brown is definitely more positive than red. Will be thinking about you these next 2 days till you get in to see the RE and get an ultrasound.

Wishing - Glad to hear that DH has been pampering you! Keep that R&R going until beta for as soon as possible! 8)

Mandarae - Welcome to the board! This is a great group of women who were nothing but supportive to me when I first joined last month and were so open to answering any/all questions. This has been a great board to be on with a lot of BFP's!

Lauren - Thinking of you and sending you tons of thoughts and prayers for your big day tomorrow! Praying for lots of healthy eggs!! :lol:

AFM - Another trip to the RE this past Friday and everything is progressing nicely. He said I had to stay on the progesterone until the end of August but gave me the option to switch to a pill (Prometrium) rather than Crinone or the PIO shots. Has anyone ever switched to prometrium rather than staying with the more traditional medications? I took his word on it that he has had success with patients using it as my behind is so sore and bruised from the shots. This heat wave in on the east coast of the US is brutal, so been staying in the AC as much as possible. Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their weekend! 8)

Dreams- So happy that everything's looking good! Stay cool!

anton- Congrats on being PUPO! This is totally it for you! That 1 perfect blast is destined to be the baby you & DH will be holding in your arms!

WeHaveHope- How is the 2ww? Ugh...I'm NOT looking forward to it! But, it's all worth it for that BFP!

longtimerivf- I'm glad your bum is feeling better! Of course, you may stay here...stay as long as you'd like!!!

fruit- Yay on being PUPO!!! Stick babies stick!

Kerri- So sorry about your bleeding scare, but brown blood is common, so try not to worry. Are you on Crinone? That could cause it.

Wishingandhoping- I'm glad DH is taking good care of you! Yeah, it's probably a little too early to POAS :wink:

mandarae- Welcome to a group that is full of really fun, supportive, & educated women!!! Is this your 1st IVF?

Lauren- Good luck tomorrow, girl! I cannot wait to hear how many eggies they get!

WeHaveHope- That's really nice that your BETA was moved. It'll make your 2ww a little shorter...anything helps!

Amanda- You're almost there! I'm sorry I have no experience/knowledge with the splitting of donor eggs. Maybe you can ask someone at your RE's office tomorrow when you go in for your u/s.

Alwaysangel- Fingers & toes crossed that your little one is snuggling in there & that's what all the cramps are.

Prayernpies- It's almost ER-time...just 1 more day!

AFM...Well, it was nice to move my name down on the list to the "Injectables" section. The FUN begins today, lol! DH just did my 1st Lupron shot. It was kind of comical b/c it felt so routine...I guess that means I'm becoming a pro/veteran at this. So, I'm on 10 units of Lupron (a.k.a. B!t@h Juice) every night. AF should come around July 31st & I go in for my baseline on August 5th. If all looks good, I will start Gonal-f that day. It's been really hot, but I've been enjoying it. On Monday & Tuesday, we went to 6 Flags & on yesterday I was at the pool for a while. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Ok ladies. I know it is absolutely way early but I POAS. I couldn't help it. I have felt so good and so positive about this cycle that I thought I would take a chance. Today I am 5 days post transfer which means that my embryos are actualy 10 days because they were 5 day blasts when frozen. There is actualy the faintest of blue lines on the test. Am I seeing thing? Are my eyes playing tricks on me? I actually wraped it in toilet paper and threw it in the garbage. I have now taken it out of the garbage three times to see if I have just gone off the deep end. But it's there. Super super light but there. What do you think??? Why do I do this to myself?

Thanks Ladies for the warm welcome!! Yes, this is my first IVF. I'm so excited to get started, but so obsessed with the whole process I can barely think of anything else. I see what you all are going through with the 2ww and I know I'm going to be the same way!! I just hope that everything goes as planned and nothing gets in the way of the transfer!

Wishing the absolute best for everyone! Have a great day!
