I am so behind on personals... I have been a little up and down lately and trying to keep it all together...

Tess- I am so sorry... Dont give up... You never know... I hate that for you... I am behind so I was cheering for you and then it made my heart sink... I am still hoping and wishing you a bfp romorrow....

kamina- thinking of you during your transfer! Sticky dust... Rest and take it easy! Thinking of you!

neffi- yeah lupron. I am on my lupron... just stopped taking bcp... I know that the injections dont hurt but i just dont like doing it!! I know that pio hurts so much more... DH has to do those injections since they go in the backside, yeah he kills me :D

leorira- yeah for the good news at work!! Thats awesome!

lauren- thats funny... never heard that side effect before :D I only gain weight... Gave up on getting it off :D

we-hope you are doing well... I know that you are waiting for the 2ww... so excited! Cant wait to hear! Thinking of you!

AFM- Yesterday was the last day of BCP!!!! :D :D Just waiting and waiting for AF... I dont think that I have ever wanted AF to come around as much as I do right now. I am so excited to be one step closer. I am so excited about the FET!!!! I just want it to be time! I know that I have to have some blood work done 2nd day of AF... Then that will determine when the transfer is... I just hope that it is the end of the month and not longer... I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend! I am pulling for you all! Looking forward to seeing more BFPs on the board!

Blessed143-your getting so close to you FET. Once you go to your u/s on the 2nd day of AF it all goes really fast from there. You'll be PUPO in no time. Thank you for asking, I am doing well. Surprisingly, taking it alot more easy during the 2WW than last time. But I know that can all change real soon. I will probably start POAS either tomorrow or Tuesday morning. We will see. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Kamina-can't wait to hear that your PUPO

We-- we are doing an FET with donor embryos. I am super excited to do this cycle....but nervous because if it doesnt work this will be our last.

Yes..the Lupron does make me a little crazy. I have been on it 3 out of 8 cycles and the first time I was laughing and crying at the same time! Luckily DH is very understanding and supportive of my emotions!

Blessed143 - Congrats on finishing your BCPs. Now you are one step closer to our BFP!!!

Kamina - Sending tons of sticky vibes your way. Hoping that your transfer is uneventful and goes smoothly. In terms of bedrest I did strict bedrest for 24 hours and stayed in the house for a total of 48 hours. When I say strict bedrest I only got up to use the bathroom and heat something up to eat. I planned ahead I put meals in tupperware containers so that I had 3 days worth of meals that just needed to be heated up. After the first 24 hours I did get out of bed but still lounged around the house. I snook out of the house on the 2nd day to go to the bank and post office but I drove through for both of those so I really did not do any major walking other than to and from the car to my front door. By the 3rd day I was back to my normal routine. No lifting but I did leave the house and go to the movies and did light house work. I did not go back to work until after 5 days. When will you have your beta?

Leora - Thanks for your encouragement, I am feeling much better about my beta. I am a bit obsessive so the website was also helpful. Glad that your first day at work went well. Sounds like a nice stress free environment. Hopefully it will be just what you need during your FET. Even more paid leave ... sounds great to me!!

Tess69 - So sorry your weekend has been such a roller coaster. I am still holding out hope for your BFP tomorrow. Image

Neffi - You are also one step closer to your BFP!!! I hear you about the PIO. I started doing ice before and heat after and that helps a lot with the knots. I also do ice after if I am sore and that also helps with the soreness. When I was on Lupron I had a meltdown at work. Just burst into tears for no reason, it was quite pathetic. Lord these meds do a number on us!!

Lauren319 - Sooooo I wanted to share my gray pubic hair experience with you. A few week ago I was waxing and found a gray pubic hair. I wanted to cry - it was so devastating but then I had to laugh because I realized that my body is so confused thanks to all the hormones I have been taking :lol: . Fortunately I have only seen one hair here and there and not a patch. But it gives me even more of an incentive to make sure I keep up with my waxing :roll: .

Rosie84 - Sending you hugs and support as you make it through your holiday season. I think those of us struggling to have children can relate to how hard it is to spend the holidays with those who have been blessed with children. It is only natural to feel like it is something you have done "wrong." But please know that we are all supporting you and know that one day you too shall have your own blessings.

Anton - Thanks a ton for your support and prayers. You are the best girl!!

Sunshine1576 - How was your party??Your fall gathering sounds divine! I hope you enjoyed yourself.

AFM - POAS monster has emerged - I told you guys I get out of control :lol: . I did one yesterday just to see what a positive looks like and could hardly contain myself. It took a little while for it to show up, but there was my pretty pink line. I did another one first this this morning and the line showed up right away and was darker than the control line. I pray that means my beta is doing its thing. Plan is to get to the drawing station at 0800 am. DH is getting here tonight so I have been so busy cleaning and just making sure everything is in place because we leave for Charlottesville tomorrow afternoon. I am hoping that we can hang around until I get my beta results and then drive out. Church was awesome today. One of our pastors is leaving to move to California so it was his last sermon and it was a little bittersweet. I stood up for prayer as I just want this miracle to continue and I am constantly in prayer that my beta results are good tomorrow.

Neffi-I know what you mean about the Lupron. I am known to be a very calm level headed person. But the Lupron unfortunately turns me into the crazy lady from Hell. I can totally relate. But once your on the Lupron your just that much closer to your FET. This is the first time I'm doing the PIO injections. After the MC last cycle I really felt I wanted to do something different. There are difinantely some advantage to doing the PIO. For one don't have to remember to insert a cream in your va jj twice daily. I really didn't like that. Also the vaginal cream always made me very swollen down there and quite irritated. Also there are much more chances for spotting from the cervix with the vaginal cream which is quite scary. But the PIO also has it's disavantages like the fact that my bottom is sore. If done with the proper preparations the actual injection doesn't hurt at all buy after several injections my bottom is now a bit sore. In any case I rather do the injection because that way my progesterone levels can be monitored. With the vaginal cream there is no way of knowing the true progesterone level.

Hey everyone, wow we have so many exciting things happening this week! I can't wait to hear about fvrogers and her super high beta numbers! Becca, I'll be thinking about you tomorrow when we both go in. BTW if you POAS in the morning and got a positive and then did it later in the day and got it negative it could be because the concentration of HCG is highest in the morning. I wouldn't lose hope.

I POAS this morning and I thought i saw a really faint line but I wasn't sure if I was just wishing it there or not. I think I will try again before my beta tomorrow. I know this sounds weird but in a way I don't want to go because everything has been going so well this cycle I don't want to ruin it with a BFN.

The lupron never made me crazy, funny how different people react differently to different drugs. The stim meds made me feel like my abdomen was going to explode though :roll:

Lots of baby dust to all you out there!

Thanks We, how was the bed rest? I always love the first day of it. After that it gets a little old. Hope your 2ww goes by quickly (even though we know it never does). Grow embabies grow!

Tuffy4u-thanks for asking. The 2WW so far has not been to bad. My RE does not recommend bedrest. They have me lay down in a position which puts my legs higher and my head lower and this is for 30 minutes after the transfer. Then he becomenda taking it easy the day and for a few days flowingthe transfer. So the day of the transfer I slept and staye in bed the rest of the afternoon and evening. This weekend I've taken it easy. I haven't left the house and have done very little. I lounged around, watched movies (te original star war on blueray and others), watched a few football games today with DH and DS, and did a little laundry while sitting on the couch. Tomorrow, I am off from work so after taking DS to school I will probably pick up a few HPT so I can go to crazy town with POAS probably by Tuesday or Wednesday. I will be home tomorrow just monitoring the Beta news.

Adkelp, Felicia, and Tuffy, I'm sending you many prayers this evening for a BFP tomorrow! Monday is going to be a BIG day on our board and I am cheering for each one of you too!

WeHaveHope, Keep resting and relaxing, glad to hear you have tomorrow off to keep those babies snuggling in with mama!

MooreBaby, Thank you for crashing...How have you been feeling?

AFM: Party was a hit...Gumbo stayed warm in the crockpot, (lol I almost wrote cockpot :lol: ), and neighbor, Sarah wowed everyone with her bbq ribs 3 trays of them! I was glad one neighbor called me from the store to pick up bbq beans b/c something happened to another neighbor and she never made it over with the potato salad. :lol: I just so happened to think bbq beans goes great with ribs but I love the combination of bbq anything with doritios too. Anyway made some chicken wings to go with and someone brought over rice, another neighbor brought over pasta salad with appetizer and some friends from work brought over a vegetable platter and a bottle of wine. I never buy alcohol since friends think we don't drink much so they always supply us with plenty. :D

The neighbors' kids ate in the gazaebo while I pulled more patio sets from my neighbors house to have enough seating. Must remember tiki porches next time, b/c I tried to have centerpieces on the table using tealight candles in them but it wasn't enough lighting. :roll: Around 9ish as we're all sitting around the bonfire telling stories and the kids go through an ENTIRE bag of marshmallows I begin thinking ok what's happened with my neighbor who was making the brownies for her husband's birthday, I thought people are going to start leaving soon where's the desert? She's sitting around the bonfire with everyone so I couldn't really ask, so I go back inside and as I'm walking back in I could hear the kids playing and for a moment I pretended they were mine, I imagined what it would be like to have my very own and it melted my heart even if it was just for a moment my life felt complete. In my kitchen, I tell another neighbor I'm running to the store for a cake and if anyone ask tell them I'll be right back, nothing else. My heart is racing because I love the anticipation of doing something for someone else, I love surprises but also knew the store closed in 12 minutes. :lol:

Of course while I'm at the store my one neighbor and I text each other without anyone knowing else lol. Alright I'm home and nobody suspects anything and Belles helped me light 40 candles and as we made our way out to the bonfire with the wind the candles go out one by one, so here we are at the patio table trying to relight them in the middle of singing while my hands are surrounding the ONLY candle that's still lit and we're all singing outside in the candelight. :lol: The banjo player couldn't come, but another neighbor brought his guitar and we were at the bonfire, he sang to the kids and this guy could really bellow some tunes, maybe he had one too many idk, but the kids were mesmorized. It's midnight and sweet Annabelle falls asleep on the couch and I cover her with my favorite fleece throw. Everyone else is outside drinking and laughter continues until aroud 2ish and I'm begining to wonder if any of my neighbors could walk themselves home, thankfully they only live up the road :lol: Several left their platters of food behind so dh and I are really enjoying nippling on their appetizers tonight. :D Oh my goodness, I later found out that my neighbors dog got into the box of brownies and ate them all, so that's why we never had brownies, poor little guy hope he's ok tonight!
