Leora-- YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are pregnant! Congrats! I am so happy for you! Enjoy this time! Cant wait to hear your next beta! This is your first BFP from a FET, right??? Yes, let me know about the reusable liners!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I am truly blessed to have my DH and DS and plan on enjoying the day fully and thinking about this upcoming transfer as little as possible. (its kinda hard when I am constantly leaking out Viagra :lol: )

Crashing for Leora- I've been staking like crazy girl and I'm so happy to hear your BFP! Don't be discouraged by the number yet. It's still early and you know darn well FET's are often late implanters. I'm sending tons of doubling dust to you across the ocean. XoXo

Leora! Oh my. So exciting! A positive is a positive. So happy to for you. And yes, 8 days is early so that can explain your low number. I'm already counting the days until the next beta. So many people are rooting for you. And btw, very cool that you would be willing to donate your eggs after you get your own kids. So generous.

Kerpuddles~glad you had a good time in Vegas. That place is so crazy and entertaining.

Bodie~ Oh geez. Two girls. How exciting. I would love that combo even though I'm sure the teenage years may be a little rough. So nice for a girl to have a best friend/sister her whole life. I ask because our RE told us if we did donor eggs, we could probably even pick the gender. Just has me thinking of what I would choose. I think I would pick a girl and leave the other one up to chance. I would like at least one girl since we already have a boy. Hopefully, it will work with our next cycle (genetically ours) and we will not even have to think about all of these questions.

Ninde~Acupunture is a little crazy huh? I wish I had more time to add it in my life but it hard to make room for more appts. Glad the personal trainer went well.

Gina~thinking of you and your family.

Sunshine~yes... men can say insensitive things. They are not the brightest people at times. Hope things are better. Glad he was smart with the flowers and cookies.

Blueeye~ loved your Thanksgiving story. So funny.

Amanda~ I would love to add some of my own eggs in there too but that would mean that we would have to pay for the stim meds/ultrasounds for me and the donor. We are running out of money. This is all so expensive. (I know you can relate)... Hope the clomid doesn't make your husband crazy. I think that was my worst med that I have taken. Made me nuts.

AFM~ getting ready for a relaxing Thanksgiving. My husband is not on call today and I'm off work. So happy to sit around and eat and drink. Yay. May do a quick run first to offset the calories.

Happy Thanksgiving Ladies!!!

So sorry that I have been MIA - things have been so crazy. I have had a rough first trimester and drama all around. But I am so grateful for my little blessing.

Leora - Congrats girl!!! I have been stalking to see your BFP, I am so happy for you!

Anton - Your tree is beautiful!! I am so happy to see you posting again.

Everyone else, I am so sorry for the lack of personals. I really have to read and get caught up. So far I have had 3 ultrasounds and everything looks good. I do have a subchorionic hematoma so that has provided for a little drama. I just stay in constant prayer. Anyways, let me read up and will try to do more personals later this evening.

Hi,

Sorry, difficult to catch up with all personals.

First day of the long weekend not so happy! today is 8dp5dt

Did a POAS on Tue when I was firm I will not do it (6dp5dt) with a BFN.
Saw a gradual change from 6dp5dt - reduced-to-no sore bbes, emotional and sleeplessness (feels like AF signs :( or its my mind).
Had a no-cause fight with DH today due to my extreme mood swings. He is being sorry when I know its my hormones. So difficult to be optimistic.

Planning to do some shopping tomorrow with DH to stop thinking.

Leora - Congrats!!!. Optimistic is the way to go.
Sunshine - Sry ur DH had a fight! Very sweet gesture from ur DH. I had a huge fight too. I am being too moody right how.
Anton - Love your tree!

Happy Thanksgiving All!

Evening ladies :-)

Christy: oh I know your husband was just trying to be numerous but ouch that backfired. And no wonder you were mad with him! Im glad he didnt let you stay withdrawn and had the presence of mind to apologies and give you the flowers and the cookies, I often think the fight is sometimes less important than how its made up xAnd the skirt sounds amazing!!

Leorira: FANTASTIC news!!!! Abd thank goodness its a bfp. Ok its lower than you might like but its positive and you are early. Plus you dont have to torment yourself with the poas anymore! Really thrilled for you.

Hopethisworks: hopefully those levels will drop.

Anton; lovely tree!!

Neffi: any word on your levels?

Kim: im sure today was rough. how are you?

Bodies: yes 2 girls!! Girl power :D

Gina: im sorry to hear your news. I'll keep your uncle in my prayers

Maria: thinking of you all for tomorrow

Blue: that's a brilliant idea about having the results over the phone. Im really glad you got to talk with yiur friend. And your first d and c sounds horrendous

Amanda: great news on your cycle
Jayne: oh that is really disciplined of you to run before the thanksgiving calories!!

Afm: currently in the bath posting from my tablet. Dear god im like a 90 year old from all the squats, lunges and bench step ups!!!!

Happy Turkey Day!

I haven't posted in some time, I have had an emotional few weeks. Even though I got my BFP I am terrified of not seeing a heartbeat. I feel like I am not myself lately I am so stressed out !!! I have zero patience, I snap at everything and I am just plain bitchy. :twisted: I just wish I could relax about it but being a control freak I think it's impossible for me. I will know on Monday if my little jelly bean has a heartbeat. Honestly, I am more nervous for DH than me. I cannot handle seeing him sad when the cycles dont work out and I feel like it's my fault. I have a lot of guilt from past cycles not working even though I know logically it's not me it's just mother nature.

So far my symptoms are pretty mild. I do get a little sick to my stomach after eating, and sometimes when I smell fried food. Heartburn and gas/constipation seem to be my two big symptoms. I do have sore (.)(.) but not like most people describe. Mine are more achy and if I push on them Ouch! I am tired and as of the last week I have lost most of my motivation to do anything.

Just wanted to give a shout out to Leora !! BFP girl and I LOVE your PMA with your new ticker!! I have nothing but good feelings for you. I think somebody mentioned above (Lou) that FET's are late implanters and that is totally true. I have no doubts you are going to see a nice strong number come Sunday (and yes I will be stalking you)

Anton- Good to see you again (((hugs)))
Margie- thanks for stalking girl! Your twins are lovely!!!!

Hope you all have a great night. I am off to plan my Black Friday attack =]
