I am officially going CRAZY! It has been three days since my egg transfer... (We transferred 2) And I have Googled how to make a time machine... So I can fast forward these 2 weeks! I am scheduled to go to the doctor on Veteran's Day! Nov 11th can not come fast enough. The doctor gave me 2 weeks off of work, but I am seriously thinking about sneaking back! I do not think my DH will allow it though!

Does anyone have any tips?
What did you do to make the two weeks fly?

I feel bad when I sneeze or go to the bathroom! I wonder... "Are they still in there? Did they fall out? Are they sticking yet?" I walk lightly...

We are not supposed to look up information (FAILED)

Yea Leah! I am excited to have someone go crazy with me! are you doing a 3 or 5 dt?
My husband has bought me some. I think that I will take one every morning and leave it in the bathroom so he can see the results... (Sweet right?) With a 5dt... People say day 5 is as early as possible to get a BFP. So I am wondering Do I count the day of transfer? (I say YES!)

Lol, I have failed at all, and I am only 1 day post transfer hahaha

I am just trying to think positive.... It also helps me to think of what I will do in the worst case scenario.

O Melissa! That is what I tried too... But my sweet DH will have no part in that! I am so worried though! I do not want to fail him. And I had dreams last night that I got up and took a PG test... like three times... I woke up thinking I really did! And they were all positive! My period is due tomorrow... I shouldn't get it though... I am glad that you are here!!! And soon Leah too!

Great news! I found a website to watch TV and movies! JACKPOT! I was about to break down and BUY Netflicks!
I was in the hospital with another American and today she sent me a message. As we were talking, she shared the websites with me! To help my craziness! She is so CALM!
So I have been watching TrueBlood... Wondering how much longer I should wait before I pee on a stick! I did previously and got a NEGATIVE... Which is great because at least I know that if I get a positive, it will be real!
Here are the links!
TUBE+ Watch full length TV Shows and Movies online for free
zmovie - Watch Movies online for free on zmovie.tv
How many days did you all wait to test? I wish I would have ordered those cheap tests in the BULK... But I didn't think far enough ahead!
Have a great weekend!

I never got a BFP on a HPT... And I only knew I was pregnant for 2 days... Sad that today I found out that the baby/babies are gone... The on-call doctor didn't give me the warm and fuzzy or any kind of support... I held up fine until her and the other 4 people left the room. Just last night me and my Hubz were talking about going home outfits... And I called to tell my Mother... For some reason I felt guilty for not telling her! I let her know I was in the hospital and all.

I am sorry sweetie

I was blessed with our one and only IVF cycle working. I am sooo sorry yours didn't. I don't know why it works for some right away and others it doesn't. I wish I could help you in some way. You've got to take some time and then refocus. None of the ladies on TTCMA have their babies because they gave up. You have to not give up either and keep fighting for the family that you know is yours.

If it wasn't meant to be, I believe the desire for babies would be gone from your heart. If the desire stays - you must continue to fight. You will get your success story too.... we just don't know when. Big FAT HUGE HUGS TO YOU!

My second 2WW,… I am actually calmer this time I think. Maybe it is because I am doing more this time to stay busy!
I took a list of the best movies from 2013 and wrote down the ones I want to see… And TV shows too. I completely avoided watching them until my 2WW started. I downloaded TONS of pregnancy and baby apps… I will decide on the one I like best and then keep that one! (Details to follow… I am such a nerd!)
Crochet
Read
Call friends… This time… We didn't tell anyone. It makes it easier not to talk about it!
Buy stocks
Make dinner menus for the week
Fun Fun Fun… (NOT!)
