I'll POAS tomorrow ;P
***Bitter Sushi Ladies February 2011 Thread*** - Page 9
Beloved, you put it so well. This is exactly what I was thinking about/trying to live today. (While taking care of mothers and newborns - why, oh why, did I become a postpartum nurse just now in my life?)
kparker - I def see something!
I know I'm missing some peeps, but I am behind on posts since I've been working. Thinking of you all.
I have been exceedingly touchy last few days, sorry for that post. I cried like all day today just from being a loon, and then my dad calls me tonight and tells me my uncle passed away. UGH cue another breakdown and more tears, when I thought I was done. I have a headache now :(
I don't know, I'm not feeling it. I have never been pregnant, and I never expect to be. I will be shocked and probably die from shock if I ever get pregnant. I just don't see it happening, ever. I mean, it will be three years this fall, I guess my heart is pretty broken.
I wanted to add to those of you seeing that line at 11dpo: those tests ARE expired, and I have read conflicting info as to whether or not they will work normally. They bit the dust last August, but I saved them since I like to pee on things. :3
Anyway, I'll let you guys know what tomorrow says. I don't expect much! Here, in case I don't update in time for some of you: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/1f2868
Kparker - you pee on an non-expired stick yet?!!!
RCR - did you have your transfer yesterday? If so how did it go, very excited for you!! I too love hearing all about the ivf stuff.
Miriam - you poas yet?
I don't know how you guys hold out, I can't help myself, I have no will power!
I am in the midst of one of those hateful cycles where af refuses to show her face and all my tests are bfn's. I am on cd 32 and I think 17 dpo.I have done a pile of tests, I have been crazier than normal with the tests this month, even before I was late. I'm not 100% regular but my cycles usually run short not long. I did suspect - due to lack of cm that I didn't ovulate this month, even though I did get a +opk. If you don't ovulate what makes your period come? Do you have to ovulate again for it to show up? Not sure what goes on there.
Good luck to all of you testing soon, and to those of you who aren't!!!!
No, I think yours is more standard, from blood test dates I've seen others post. But 18DPO is the standard for everyone at my clinic, for some reason.
MBA - you are so positive. I love having you around here, not that I don't want you yo leave. I wish you lived close to me. You could babysit DS.
Kparker - crossing my fingers for you.
Everybody else - thinking of you. I can't multi-quote from my phone for some reason, so I forgot all of my other replies.
My transfer was yesterday. We had one embie that was about 90 cells (which is pretty good) . The other one never got bigger than 8 cells so I only could transfer one. It was no different than an iui really, except the first time they tried to put the embie into me it didn't come out of the little container it was in, so after checking the container under the microscope they found out it was still there and did it again. I had to pee so bad during the whole thing it was hard to relax. They gave me a picture of the embie, which looks pretty perfect to me. Exactly like the pictures of ivf embryos online.
I asked the doc how often the embie stays in he container and doesn't come out the first try, and he said about 5% of he time. He also said "this one must be a girl because its really stubborn". Hopefully it is stubborn enough to stick too.
My beta is a week from Monday. I am off work until this Monday.
Rcr - Wow; you now have a precious little embryo in your uterus! How does it work anyway? Do they just stick it in the centre of the uterus and hope it implants? Forgive my ignorance of the process. 90 cells sounds big and healthy to me! Take it easy and pamper yourself. You totally deserve it.
rcr, I'm super excited for you and looking forward to good news!
We just got the go-ahead for IVF treatment, they did some tests on DP to make sure he doesn't have certain genetic problems and the results were all good. Now we just have to come up with the money and decide whether to transfer one embryo or two. I am leaning towards one because the idea of twins scares me a bit. I think a lot of the things I put high value on, like breastfeeding and cosleeping etc would be a lot harder with twins.
I do want two kids though and I'm not getting any younger.
Oh Grahnola! I was actually thinking about you today and trying to stalk you on the TTC after loss forum. I am so sorry you are going through this. I won't say that it's probably nothing because I know you've been there many times before and have probably heard those words before. Worrying right there with you.
