Obviously I'm scared as can be and refusing to even let my mind go to a live take home baby. The day I tested BFP was the day I was due with my February loss so that makes me hope the lost baby is somehow watching over this one.

I'm sad to see so many are still struggling and very sad to see we had some more losses :-(

Jennifer what did your beta say? ((((Hugs))) I'm guessing no good news or you would have posted.

Mel-Congrats! How many dpo are you? Sounds like we might be due really close to each other.

Rebecca can you put me to pregnant and praying to make it please?

Re: Blessed with children, Struggling for more Week of September 17th

Hi Ingrid- Congratulations! How many did you transfer? I only ask because I have fingers crossed that next cycle I will FINALLY be able to do my FET and I'm not sure how many to transfer... I think that is a tough decision. I think you are absolutely right- I will be prying that this little one is being watched over, is snuggling in and ready to stay put until ready in 9 months

Re: Blessed with children, Struggling for more Week of September 17th

Rebecca we transferred 3. Which my RE was really uncomfortable with and she even had me sign a paper saying I take full responsibility. They pretty much only do single embryo transfers at their clinic especially with grade A blasts like mine. But with my other issues and with this being the higher order transfer it was I wanted to maximize my chances (besides-we got 3 beautiful blasts this cycle and I have never had a successful FET so I didn't even want to freeze any). I really, really doubt there is more than 1 or maybe 2. In a first time IVF setting I would transfer 2 if you would be okay with twins, one if you'd rather just have 1 baby.

Re: Blessed with children, Struggling for more Week of September 17th

Beta was 738 at 17dpo so definitely nice and high. My RE only does repeats if the levels are low so no second draw here. U/s set for next Wednesday October 3rd.

Re: Blessed with children, Struggling for more Week of September 17th

Congrats on a good beta!

AFM, 1 dpo. I don't think this is going to be our month, and I"m trying to be ok with that. I don't know what's wrong with me but I just am having a very hard time processing all of this. I'm trying to prepare myself mentally for all the testing we're suppose to do next month and I"m just not feeling ready. Suddenly I"m wondering if maybe I'm just suppose to have one child. Of course with that comes all teh depressing thoughts of maybe I only deserve one or maybe because of how I'm dealing with one I don't deserve two. I know that's the crazy mind games at work but I'm still having a rough time with it. I know you ladies have been there. Sorry to ramble just been a super rough weekend.

Wow Ingrid! That is great news

Laurel- I have felt the same. I am the closest to giving up right now. I just have to do the FET next month, but it is crazy how indifferent I am about it all. Sorry you are dealing with that. I sure hope you get your surprise BFP and all the rest just falls into place.

I'm sorry you are feeling down. It's really easy when you struggle to beat yourself up- I always believed if I just tried harder... I wasn't getting my second because I just wasn't smart enough to think of what it was that would FIX me... It sounds silly, but after you talk to enough doctors, sometimes it feels like you DO know more then them. I remember when I went to a doctor a year ago and he said I was in luck cuz there was this NEW drug that was like a miracle to women with PCOS, it was being written about in all the special medical journals. I took out my pen and asked him to spell it. I kid you not when he tells me M-E-T-F-O-R-M-I-N with a straight face. Really??? Cuz I never even THOUGHT of THAT drug...

I'm sorry your feeling frustrated and scared. Sometimes listening to screamo music in my car with the volume all the way up helps... I go deaf, but it helps work a little bit of the stress off. I'm CERTAINLY not suggesting it as the solution, lest anyone think I've gone daffy. But sometimes it takes the edge off when you want to stab someone in the face with scissors.

Actually loud music in the car used to be my solution. But now my son goes to work with me so no dice. Oh and to make things more fun I think I have an ear infection. I just cant win right now.
