Just wanted to check in and see how you're doing... I was doing well until today, but I'm suddenly beginning to get very restless and anxious. I'm having some intermittent cramping, but I honestly have no idea if that's from the progesterone or from my little embies burrowing in. I just wish there was some way to see what was going on in there!! I hate that all the symptoms I had previously when I was pregnant (sore boobs, wild emotions, light cramping), I already have because of the supplemental hormones.

Ok, just needed to vent for a minute. Back to work and trying to be patient.

I've had slight cramping but nothing major. Just found out today none of the three remaining embryos were good enough to freeze so I'm disappointed by that news. The first time donor's stats were so good that they changed policy and instead of doing a two way split on the eggs they did a three way split with the egg bank getting six. Apparently they were wrong if only one of the eight eggs we got was good. When is your beta? will you POAS?

So sad about the remaining embies. It's such a random numbers game, isn't it? It just seems like nothing's EVER for certain...

But just remember to concentrate on that one little beauty you have right now. I keep talking to mine and imagining what they're doing, hoping they're happy and comfortable.

There's no way I won't POAS - I'm not that strong! I'll try to wait until Wednesday or Thursday at the earliest, since I know I'd be setting myself up for disappointment any earlier than that. My beta is scheduled for Saturday... When's yours? Will you make it that long?

Are you the only two on the board in the 2WW right now?

Keep in mind, Mrs. M that the majority of cycles don't have any embryos to freeze and that isn't an indicator of whether or not your precious cargo is burrowing in and thriving!

(hugs!)

My beta is not until April 11. I plan to POAS on a week from today if I can hold out that long.

I know minniet will be joining us soon, and there are a few others who are close (you included, right?!), but for right now, it may just be us.

I'm not gonna lie, I POAS tonight - I'm only 4dp5dt, so I know it's ridiculous. However, there was clearly a faint line present. I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but it's a little hard not to.

Brave, no. Stupid, yes! I kind of wish I hadn't done it, but there's no going back now. And, of course, today I'm not feeling any symptoms at all. My DH was actually pretty mad at me for doing it - we've been down this road before and I'm pretty sure he will refuse to let himself be excited at all until we see a heartbeat. I don't blame him, and I share a lot of his feelings, but I can't help having a little twinge or two of excitement..

Keep us updated on you, Mrs. M. I have a good feeling for you.
