Hi ladies... I'm still here. Just been following along with everyone else's great BFP's and beta numbers!!

-- congrats to everyone with BFP's!!!

-- thinking about everyone else starting/going through the shots and the retrieval process etc... many prayers & sticky vibes going your way!

AFM: went in Wednesday to check progresterone & E2 levels (everything was fine); will go in Wednesday for (I guess) beta #1? Not really sure how this works, but I'll figure it out as I go.

My horrible gas pains/nausea seem to have stopped. I still get indigestion, but its hard to say if thats just SOP for me or a lovely side effect from the PIO shots {I don't think I'm allergic to them}. Today I have a pretty killer headache, and of course every day I've been tired about 4pm and want to nap like crazy! Fortunately, I'm on spring break this week & I've had lots of opportunities to rest. I've had some minor cramping/twinges in my lower abdomen, on the left side of my uterus, pretty much every day since the transfer on Sunday. I'm trying not to read much into any of the "symptoms" because I know it could be from the PIO shots and I don't want to get too excited.

Anyways, so just checking in.
