Thank you all for the kind words, thoughts and prayers. She is terminal so she will never fully recover. She could live days, weeks, months etc..or could go any time.

Thank you Gina. So sorry about your news. It's so hard to see that sort of thing happen to a loved one - sometimes I think harder for those around them than the afflicted person themselves.

Sorry ladies no personals because I am going crazy right now. Took 2 test when I got up and nothing nadda zip on the test. Maybe it is the time of day or maybe it is just a big fat - I mean there is a very faint line on one but shouldn't it be darker. The line didn't come right away. Yep I am official in crazy town!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Any of my POAS addicts have any thoughts?

Gina- I am thinking of you & your grandma

Gina~ your grandma is one tough lady. Didn't you say she won the battle against two cancers years ago? Good to hear she's awake.

Amanda~ that is so annoying. I'm so sorry. Roller coaster for sure!

Hope~ great news. I've been reading about FET being better because the woman's body isn't so toxic with hormones. They say the FET transfers success would be a lot higher if they would save the best embryos and freeze them... hmmm, anyone else know anything about this?

Kerpuddles~ Oh my. Glad you're part of the frozen so you have less chance of OHSS. Geez... you're an egg machine. Best of luck to you.

Julia~ I think on my last cycle I tested positive 8dp5dt. I already took one to make sure the HCG was out of my system which of course was negative. I'm going crazy too.

Rosie~ totally interesting transfer. I hope it works.

Leora~happy for you that your DH is up for adoption. I'm still working on mine. I did research on adoptions from India and he got scared when we learned that all adoptions are from orphanages and the infants are usually a year old. Not to mention another 30 grand for the process. I told him it is scary but we're not sure what we would get of our own (autism, etc). I would like to at least start the paperwork to give us another option. I'm already called the nanny often anyhow because my son is of course dark like his dad and I have blonde hair. The way I look at it, I'm the odd one. An Indian girl would fit right in.

And I always love your comments. You could write comedy on infertility. Seriously.

AFM... glad to be done with the steroids. Those pills give me heart palpitations and I don't like it.

okay ladies. we are using test that you can use serum or urine. So we played mad scientist and got a tube of blood with a SVT tube which is the tube you need to get serum. My DH drew my blood into the tube and then duct tape the tube of blood to our fan for the spinner. We got serum and used it for our test. My DH use to draw blood at a lab so he knows how to do it and he had the tubes. I think I have dragged DH into crazy town with me!! anyways I posted a better picture down the page

Gina- Thinking of your grandma. She sounds like quite a fighter and a very strong woman.

Kerpupples- Holy crap! That's a lot of eggs and embies!

Julia- I tested positive at 5dpt of 2 expanded blasts. It varies woman to woman depending on implantation time.

Amanda- Sorry to hear about the tests. I forgot what day you are on. Remember, it's not over yet. It could be the time of day, etc. Hang in there and keep us posted. I can't see the line. The pic is too small and I can't get it to enlarge. I love that you are a mad scientist. :lol:

Leorira- I hear ya on the religion discussion. I don't want to start any debates on here, just stating an opinion. It's very interesting to see what infertility does to one's faith. I never really had much faith. I went to church growing up but never felt really good about it. I consider myself to be spiritual and believe that the world is all connected in some way. But I don't believe in some master puppeteer pulling strings and making decisions for all of us. It just doesn't make sense to me. I suppose that makes me agnostic. I have respect for everyone's choices of religion and spirituality. I certainly value its place and how important it is to many.

AFM: Super tired today. I must have slept wrong last night because I have an intense pain today in my chest, shoulder, and neck on the left side. It feels superficial like it is muscular. Certain movements make it worse like moving my arm across my body, breathing in a deep breath, and touching it. I'll keep an eye on it. I don't have any other symptoms that could mean anything else. I've also had some muscle spasms due to my MS on my right side (which is the typical location) but never have had any like this. I don't have any shortness of breath, severe abdominal cramping, or any crushing pain.

I have had left shoulder pain due to cyst rupture and it feels different than that was. I'm sure it's fine but it's really annoying.

Have a wonderful weekend. Americans-Don't forget our time change this weekend.

Holy SMOKES this board moves quick!!!! Let me try to catch up with you guys :mrgreen: I think I will not be using clip art tonight since I am like 10 pages behind!!

Amanda- that is one heck of a LINE!!!! Your making me want to POAS! I am pretty sure we transferred same day and we also have our Beta same day. I might be joining you in crazytown soon girl! Congrats on the BFP!

Blueeyed-- Sorry to hear about your pain. I have actually woke up like that before and it can last for days. I hope you get better soon. Rest up! =]

Jayne321- When is your Beta scheduled? Looks like we transferred close together! Any symptoms? See mine below..

Hopethisworks- CONGRATS!!!! I love to hear stories like this, it's inspirational especially since I am on IVF #4.. blah! Enjoy the next 9 months of bliss!!

blessed143- Congrats on your transfer.. now the fun 2ww with crazy town fun. =] Wishing you a super fast wait and a beautiful BFP in the end!

GIna- Praying for you and your family. My Grandmother was very special to me and I lost her 3 years ago- she was also terminally ill. I know how hard this is ((Hugs))

I know I am missing a bunch of you, I have to do some laundry or I will not have clothes for work tomorrow- ahhh! Just a quick update on me. Tomorrow I am 7dp 5dt- I am so tempted to POAS but I simply cannot do it, I am however going to POAS Sunday which will be 8dp 5dt and I know that whatever result I get should be accurate. I have been having a lot of symptoms- some convincing me I am getting a BFP some not so much. Wed which was 5dp 5dt I started getting nautious, that has continued to today. Smelling a lot of smells that don't agree- but this girls could ALL be in my head. Cramping has been sporadic and mostly in my lower back. I got this same cramping on my last BFN so that is making me worry. Have a lot of weird twinges, shooting pains, weird cramps down low in my abdominal area-- these I am happy for. I am SUPER moody- like noise, talking, etc is annoying the crap out of me. This could be PMS? LOL... excessive saliva, a little heartburn and the
'girls' are not at all sore??
Anyway-- I am trying not to read into these symptoms 'too' much because honestly I think PIO causes a lot of this. I think we should start a 2WW symptom board, or maybe there is one!!!

Much love to you all- Jennifer xoxo

Again, thank you all!!

Ladies in your 2ww don't worry and stress (easier said than done I know!!) if you don't have a single symptom. I was 5 months before I knew I was pregnant because of getting AF once a year if that AND having not a single symptom. It wasn't until I woke up one morning to a belly that popped overnight and my breast were leaking some. DH was like umm I think you need to get a test! lol

Amanda- I was lmao about you guys attaching the tube to the fan. You go mcgyver! That's a great line! I'm so excited for u!

Blue- ouch that sounds painful. I'm praying for the pain to dissipate.

Jen- I totally agree with the 2ww symptom board. I think I've seen a 2ww forum here.....not sure. I think I'm 4dp3dt, I'm having really weird dreams, which was always the case in my past pregnancies, some lower abdominal cramping boobs are killin me. That's all I think, oh and I'm tired a lot.
