I'm doing pretty good. Thank god for my meditations, they are the only thing keeping me sane right now!!!! I'm meditating a lot on surrendering to whatever outcome is in store for me. This afternoon I have a massage scheduled so that should help me relax!

 

I've been having cramping on and off ever since the transfer, and it doesn't really feel like menstrual cramps, so there is plenty of fuel for my imagination!!! I'm hopeful but at the same time I have trouble believing it could ever happen to me.

 

DH has convinced me to wait until Wednesday (13dpo) to test because he's afraid I'll have a total mental breakdown if I get a BFN and I already have an appointment scheduled with my psychologist for Wednesday so she can stop me from going completely out of control.

Sounds like some really good planning for these last few days. The cramping does sound interesting... Cautiously optimistic is a good state to be in, I would think. I'm SO rooting for you!!!

Sourire

i don't know what exactly to say to you because the mind can be interesting in times of question. and i will be in your same position in a week. damn...intense sourire. i am sending all the possible energy i can to you up there in canada. be nice to yourself. if you feel like spinning put the nano in your ears and blare your favorite song. is there a mini series you could watch for distraction? a book? how about long conversations on the phone listening to someone else's life? i think dh is right in waiting for the test on wednesday. also, you'd take the test at home and convince yourself the lines are not dark enough or maybe something is wrong with the test. this way you can go straight to the re and know everything is accurate.

enjoy your massage and if you need to talk i will be on and off today.

best

Sourire- The meditations seriously are a life-saver. I agree with waiting to test until 13 DPO, what day is your bloodtest? My advice obviously after the last week is exactly what tracy said, don't take multiple tests to compare! The cramping sounds like a great sign too. Enjoy your massage and try to stay hydrated (especially after getting massaged!). Sending all my best to you and embaby. The disbelief that it can happen won't go away even after your BFP... We are starting to think it won't feel real until there is a belly to show for it.

 

tracy- Just one more week for you too!

Toothfairy - I'm hoping for a fabulous beta for you today!

AFM - Things arent looking good. I've had increasing quantities of spotting since Saturday. I've also started having nightmares about pregnancy tests. I just want to get it over with!

I had some spotting too. Hopefully it is just baby making a sweet home. The dreams are awful, I dreamed my DH was having anal sex with a transvestite, last night I dreamed I totaled my car... There was another crazy one too. I'm still praying for the best.

Still no word from my doc today... Agh!

Sourire; I think spotting is a great sign!! I had a good amount of it with my IVF baby. It is made worse if you are on baby aspirin too. Honestly, it's pretty darn hard to get your period on all the progesterone they make you take (though it does occasionally happen) - so spotting is often caused by a preg, not getting your period. Praying for good news for you tomorrow!!!

 

Toothfairy: Wow, crazy dreams!!

tracyamber - tomorrow I am testing at home, the beta with the RE is on Friday.

 

Vegan - I'm trying to believe that spotting is good but I've had spotting in every single cycle where I was not pregnant (aka every single cycle I've had ever in my life), including various cycles on various different types of progesterone. Spotting has never been good news in the past. What concerns me is that the quantity of blood I am spotting is increasing every day, just like it has in every other cycle. If it were just a little bit every day I wouldn't worry but I actually have to wear a pad! I don't actually think I'm about to get my period though... I can easily spot for 2 weeks straight :P

 

toothfairy - your number sounds great! Feel free to stick around until after the ultrasound if you don't feel confident enough to move to grads yet.

TF, that is really good news. Sucks about the strange dreams though, doesn't make you feel very rested the next day, I'm sure. I had crazy dreams when I was pregnant, especially the first time... but they were never as bad as when I was on an anti-malaria drug when I was traveling a few years ago, thank goodness. Yours sounds like what mine were like then... Hoping things settle down for you soon...

 

Sourire, sorry you are having to deal with spotting-- did you call the clinic to let them know? As others have mentioned, many can experience it, and it doesn't turn out to be anything serious. I'll be thinking of you tomorrow...

Oh, Sourire, I'm so sorry. I can feel your pain over this. I just wish things could be easier, and that you would have gotten a different result this morning, plain and simple.  But maybe all hope is not lost, given Blue's story with the POAS and then the beta.  Still, not easy right now... I'm glad that you

have your appointment later today so you can do some self-care. Keep us posted, all of us here in the online community are here for you. grouphug.gif

I really really don't want to hear stories about people getting a positive beta after negative tests at home. According to my FRER instructions, the test is 98% accurate at this point. Also i had bright red bleeding this morning. I just need to grieve and move on.

Sourire- I'm so sorry to hear that. I hope your doctor has a solution to stop the spotting so next time is a huge BFP. On top of that I'll continue to pray that tomorrow is different. Sending comfort & support your way.

Sourire: Hugs! I'm so sorry!! I think Aura got her period before her beta and they figured out her estrogen levels were doing something funky - once they corrected it, she conceived her twins. Perhaps there is more your RE can look into in the 2WW as to why you start spotting so early?
