Gina - I guess you figured it out! Great pictures of you and your son!

Julia - I'm sorry you are in 2ww hell. Have you gotten the courage to use the HPT? Monday is soon! And I totally do crazy crazy things when I'm waking up from the anesthesia. I think the recovery nurses are used to it :D I asked for my husband to come back and visit, and the nurse asked for his name, so she could page him in the waiting room. I said "David". She asked for a last name, because David is a super common name. I told her that he didn't have a last name and started to cry. She paged just "David". My David came back and asked if it was for him - she pointed at me hysterically crying and asked if I was his!

Blessed - a bad test! HOW ANNOYING! I would call the company and ask for a refund or a coupon for a new test. Those things can be expensive! Hoping you are still just too early.... will you POAS again today?

Ryann - great picture of you guys! thanks for thinking of me. I recently asked a former boss of mine to be a reference on our adoption application. She said that she would do anything to help us get a baby. She said that she wished that there was a petition list that she could sign, saying that she thought we deserved a baby. She said she bets we could find hundreds of people to sign it too. Sadly, that wouldn't help! But it's nice to know there are so many people rooting for me.

Rosie - congrats on being PUPO!Image I hope that last embryo makes it to freezing too. Will you POAS or not? When is beta?

Ninde - homosexual couples are allowed to adopt legally, but the process is much harder and there is a huge stigma. Just like we have an advantage as potential adoptive parents because we are young and healthy (as opposed to older or with chronic health problems), being married and heterosexual is an advantage too. (I don't think this is fair, but this stigma exists and they are placed lower on the waiting lists.) Hopefully I'll look great and pregnant again really soon!

Jen - WOOOOHOOOO! Image That's fantastic! How far along will you be for your u/s? (if you want help figuring out your due date - check out http://www.ivf.ca. Add a pregnancy ticker already, preggo!)

kerpupples - yup, my dad is an asshole. Oh well. What's weird to me too is that I really take after him, both in looks and in personality. I'm nothing like my mom. My dad and I like the same books, movies, etc - people say we sound alike - pictures of us as kids are indistinguishable. I really hope I don't turn out like him as a parent though... "Lucky poor college student" indeed! I guess sometimes even poverty has an upside :D

Margi - I'll be okay without a blinkie, but thanks! Here's one for you - Image

Bodie - congrats on telling your mom. Have you told anyone else yet? Doesn't that make it feel so real? Congrats!

Maria - BCP while TTC is always a bit insane and frustrating, but it does help in the short term. I hope your migraine medicine works out well too.

Kiminish - sorry that only 1/2 the eggs fertilized. Your siggy says "severe MF" - did you do ICSI? We have to do ICSI because of severe male factor - and our fert rate is about 50% too (7 out of 14 last time on day 3).

HopethisworksM - good luck! I hope the third beta was just a fluke -- keep us updated!

Christy - you didn't POAS? WOW! I'm impressed! Good luck with the beta today. I'll be stalking all day for results!

Jayne - I don't mind questions about my boys at all. Micha was born at 640 grams, Asaf was born at 530 grams. Both fluctuated a teeny bit in the short time they were alive (losing a little the first few days as is normal, gaining a bit back - they were good eaters for their size - eating nothing but my breast milk (via gavage) - how cool!) ---- wow! What a great looking family! We are not nearly as attractive :D ------- I'm so so so sorry about the BFN, although I understand how sometimes it's easier to know, even if it's negative. Enjoy your hormone free day...

blue eyed - only 1 more day! I'm so excited to hear your results. Remind me again how far along you are? (everyone needs a pregnancy ticker so I can keep track! :D )

LYD - HURRAY FOR AF! I'm so excited the b*itch finally showed up! PUPO for Christmas sound like a great plan!

AFM - I GOT THE GREEN LIGHT! <happy dance> Image ImageMy lining on the u/s this morning was a 10! Woohoo! Assuming my bloodwork comes back normal, I'll start my progesterone Fri or Sat for a Wed or Thurs transfer next week (depends on scheduling things on their end). I know later today.

I'm so excited! Seems so stupid - because even if this didn't work out my way, I would only have a 5 day delay, but I'm glad this is happening soon. I'm soooooo stressed and I just want this cycle to end already! Keeping my fingers crossed that the embryo thaws normally. My biggest fear is not having anything to transfer at all.....

Leora- Yes! Glad you got the green light! Whoo! Thanks :) Looking at that picture keeps me from giving up on a second! Yeah finally figured out the pictures out! Been a while since I was a part of a forum.

Sunshine- Can't wait to hear your Beta today!!!
I think the year is because he SHOULD retire from the military before next Christmas so she wants to get his medical stuff in order. He will get so much disability between that, his knees and sinuses. IMO though and I'll talking to him about it, I think he should go in a few months. The disc are in his neck and are very close to pushing into his spine.

Jayne- Sorry about the BFN but you have a great attitude!

LYD10- Glad AF came for you so you can get started!

HopethisworksM- Hope it has gone up a lot!

Kiminsh- Good luck with your Transfer!

Kerpupples- That is GREAT!

AFM- Doing a little better. I've had lots of cries. My Grandmother may not have those 3 weeks now. I just don't understand it all because they never did a biopsy. I guess they did blood test and just going by that. She didn't want any samples getting checked. So it looks like the heart failure is what we take her away. They have taken all her medicines away and not doing any blood sugar checks.

Waiting to attempt IVF is getting harder every day. I really wish we had the money because waiting til late next year if even then, is just too hard.

Thank you all for your continued thoughts and prayers for myself and my family, and now DH. Neck surgery or any surgery close to your spine is so risky. My Dad has slipped disc and doesn't want it because he's afraid of the Doctor making a mistake or something and never walk again.

F*CK MY LIFE

Geez. When it rains, it f*cking pours, no?

As y'all know, I've been pushing to get this FET scheduled for next week, instead of the week after.

Well - I went to the clinic this morning and everything is on track for a transfer Wed or Thurs, Nov 16 or 17.

Then I get to work - and I get a bizarre phone call. One of the secretaries in the other office confirming that I'm on the 9am flight on Wednesday. WTF?

Apparently, there is a company wide (200pple, offices in 2 cities) trip next week - on Wednesday and Thursday. Private plane trip down to Eilat (resort town in the south), luxury hotel overnight, scuba diving, horseback riding, rappelling, JEEP-ing - the whole works!

Apparently, the reservations had to be made the week BEFORE I started working here. They had already hired me, but I wasn't yet *in* the office. So someone decided I would, of course, love to come on this trip, and signed me up.

NO ONE TOLD ME ABOUT IT!

If I had known about this trip, I would have pushed off the FET for another week from the beginning. GRRRRRR

I'm still happy about getting my transfer next week. DH pointed out that I could just call the clinic and tell them I want to wait another week and continue with a lower dose of estrogen and go for another SnS later on.. maybe that would work. But because of timing, my next SnS would have to be only on Nov 20 - I don't think continuing estrogen for another 2 weeks after my lining is already 'good' would be a great idea. I could just cancel the whole thing and do the FET next month.

But I know my lining is perfect now. I really don't want to wait another month -- or even another week. I've been building this up in my mind.

I just think the added stress from delaying would more than cancel out any relaxing done on this trip.

So I'll miss it. Boo.

I called DH to tell him about this. He laughed hysterically at the f*ck-i-ness that is our lives.

Jayne-I am so sorry about your BFN. I am glad you are staying positive. Adoption sounds like a wonderful idea. I think you would make a wonderful mommy to a little girl from India who needs saving. I wish you all of th best and I am keeping you in my prayers.

Sunshine-keeping you in my prayers today for a BFP.

With the kids growing up so fast sometimes I feel like I'm starting to get empty nest syndrome. Way to early, I know but I so miss them being little. I know they still need me but sometimes I feel like they really don't need me as much anymore. I know it's all part of life and growing up but I don't particularly like it. I think I spent so much time feeling guilty about about making the decision to leave my son without a father figure in the home that I didn't really enjoy DS when he was so little. I know now that I made the best decision when I left and that I have without a doubt given him a wonderful life. He has two loving step-siblings and a wonderful step-father who loves him to death. But, I ust wish I could have enjoyed that time with him more and not been so preoccupied with all my other problems and guilt. I really miss him being so little.

Hey Ladies. I am sorry that I am not doing personals. I am upset emotionally. Still no positive on the HPT. I am right now offically 7dp5dt fet. I have been testing in the mornings and it is not really a full day. I am still holding out for hope. I am leaving it up to God and even though all I believe and trust in HIM I have found it to be hard. I have broke down and cried two days in a row. This is why people say dont POAS. but .... oh well... I am going to go crazy and insane but I am still praying tht God will bless us. I really hope that you all are doing well. I am going to continue to POAS everyday until the beta. I cant believe this is such an emotional rollercoaster. Really tried to prepare myself. Take care!

Just a quick hi and thanks to everyone for thinking of me during yet another BFN. It's sad because I'm so used to bad news that I kind of expect it now. It doesn't make a lot of sense seeing that we had a "text book perfect blastocyst". Urrr!! Goes to show that the quality of the embryo doesn't always matter. And to make matters worse, India has closed it's adoption with the US for now. I'm hoping it is up and going after the new year. I just went out and bought the 'secret daughter' book that someone told me I should read. Guess I'll start that soon. I'm waiting for my clinic to call and tell me how soon I can run. Exercise is my release and I always look forward to a good run after I've tortured my body with hormones.

Personals later... Off to the Charger's game. I sure hope they win. Tough season.

Maria~ can you please change my status to possible IVF #3 instead of FET. I wish I had frozen embyros but I'm not that lucky. Sad face.
