Yes its been my addiction. The week before I started it I knocked out two baby blankets each in a day. So once this GIANT one is done, I can make a few more baby ones. I love making those so much.

Sarah- that is an impressive blanket! I wish I knew how to do that. At least you are being productive while on bedrest! I'll probably just watch way too much Netflix. We are hoping for a 5 day transfer and going to put in 2 embryos. Is that crazy? I just feel like if we've gone this far I want to give it our best shot! Maybe twins, maybe not?
Hopefully I'll hear another update from the lab tomorrow. I keep thinking about those 16 'embabies' all day long!

Dani- welcome! we are both newbies learning the lingo. that is AWESOME that your insurance is covering for you.

jes81878 and Leah- thank you thank you for the prayers and happy vibes! Yay for moving forward!

A question for you ladies- I am still so bloated since my egg retrieval on Tuesday. Is that normal? How long does this last? I need to buy more stretchy pants!

Goodnight and good luck everyone!

Mary, I had 17 eggs retrieved and was a little sore on my transfer day (5 day), but it was nothing major. A few days after my transfer, my ovaries started hurting very bad, and I started retaining a lot of fluid (about 15 lbs). We went to watch Despicable Me 2, and my ovaries hurt every time I laughed..very painful. I'm up at least 6 times a night to pee now. I started doing some research and think I may have gotten delayed OHSS. I read that pregnancy can trigger it, and that would explain why all my symptoms came a few days after transfer. I read that if you are pregnant it could take up to 12 weeks to return to normal. I hope not because I'm miserable, but I would take this over a BFN any day. Good luck to you.

Jennifer yeah that sounds miserable. I did retain a lot of fluid, and once you are pregnant you maintain some bloat. The shots don't help you shed it either. But it is normal and does go away some.

AFM, these are the two little embryos inside me.


And nope, don't think its crazy to put back 2 embies for a 5dt. Thats what we did.

Oh and I was looking online at HPT post transfer, just curious how early some women get a and some take them and get one just 4dp5dt. CRAZY to me, but makes me really want to pee on a stick.

Sarah, they are beautiful. I was able to hold off till 5d5dt, and I broke down and tested. I used a dollar tree and had a faint line with FMU, and went out and bought a First Response that evening, and it quickly showed a positive.

Sarah- that is so exciting! Just wondering if you'd like to share- How did you decide on 1 or 2?
Our RE is recommending 1. Just trying to do my research and weigh the risks and benefits both ways.

Hoping they stay nice and comfy in there!

Canthurrylove- I think a lot of RE's base the decision on factors like age, previous cycles, etc. because of my age, and it being our first cycle, our RE only implanted 2 5 day blasts even though we also had a morula. This time we did all three that we had at a 3 day transfer.

Brook how did it go?

As for me we have always done two. And they are usually good quality. And so far I've become pregnant every time. My son is from cycle 2 and this is 4. I won't have a problem if we have 2. But I want the best chances for one baby because really that's what is prefer.

I'm gonna test tomorrow but I don't expect anything. I just want to know already.

Good luck Sarah! Keep us updated! Your embryos are so cute! Love that you posted them!

Tina how are you?

Jennifer, any updates?

Well it's the day after my retrieval and I am still in some pain. Nothing like yesterday though. I got home and slept and woke up in tremendous pain. Took some pain meds and went back to sleep and then watched movies the rest of the day. The cramping has gone but i am just still sore, and sorry, kind of personal but very gassy. Wasn't sure if that was normal or not. Did anyone else feel that way?

As for the retrieval. They retrieved 15 eggs! =) that seems to be a magic number they say! And I just got the call today that 10 fertilized. =). I am very happy about that. I am on the 5 day transfer, so I go back on Thursday. I cannot wait to hear more about everything.

Thanks everyone for checking on me!

Brooke- I was sooooo gassy after both of my retrievals and had a lot of pain when using the restroom. I also got constipated the first time though not the second. I know...TMI.

The TWW is killing me! I have had so much anxiety this time. I am really fearing a negative result or a chemical like our first try. I am having difficulty breathing and had a panic attack last night. I so badly want to POAS, if nothing else to at least begin to prepare myself. I am a wreck. Husband doesn't want me to...we can wait 2 more days! Not sure I can make it. Any tips for getting through and calming down?

Brooke, Congrats on the fertility report....looking forward to see you BFP soon. I had my retrieval on 6/18 and am still very gassy. I was wondering if it was because the Endometrium I'm taking.

Tina, I don't know how you held off this long; I started testing 5dpddpt. I don't have any advice for the tww. I've been impatiently waiting for my ultrasound and wish I could find something to make the wait easier.

AFM, I'm just trying to hurry and pass time till the 18th. I'm excited and hopeful, but I can't let go of the worrying and being scared. I really hope that everything will go perfect with the ultrasound, and I can really let myself enjoy this pregnancy. Please keep me in your prayers, and you all are in my prayers.

Took a test this morning and got a very faint positive. I loaded to photobucket, and I can see it better on my phone then my computer, but this is it.

Im only 5dp5dt so Im not shocked how light it is.
