Holy COW! Is this real? We are used to 1% chances every month. IVF is our best odds.
CD23 and last few days of BCP. I've been on Lupron now for 2 days, I think I will be on it for about 20 days total. Working with Acupuncture to keep stress down and get my lining ready for transfer. I get my protocol end of next week and will know then what to do with this huge box of drugs.
I could use every prayer and every well wishes that you guys can muster up!
I am so scared and excited at the same time. Still thinking of starting counseling too because I need help on how to handle this if it doesn't work.....heck maybe if works I will still need counseling. lol
So freaking excited for you, Gretchen I can't wait for you to finally see that beautiful BFP
I will say that I think the counselor is a great idea...even if it works. I really truly thought that the moment I saw my first BFP life would be easy-breezy and all my cares would just fly out the window. I had an unusually stressful first trimester with Claire, but even after that it was hard for me. I had to slowly realize that a BFP isn't a magic cure, it just means you have new things to worry about. I had to learn to focus on enjoying each moment and each stage, otherwise I'd just be a basketcase all the time. This book was a big help to me: http://www.amazon.com/The-Pregnancy-...gnancy+anxiety.
Anyhow...back to the happy part Can't wait for you to get your protocol...I'm sending you all the happy thoughts, BFP dust, and everything else I can.
So exciting!!!!!!!! I can't wait to see you get those two beautiful lines! I agree with Melissa that even after the BFP so many worries still remain so talking to someone would probably be a great idea! I really, reallllly want this to work for you! Crossing everything and saying prayers!
I made the appointment for an infertility specialist counselor. My first visit is next week. Thank you so much for all the support. I seriously need every ounce and every word of it. I don't know if Lupron can make you weepy and clingy with only two doses but that is how I am feeling. I think it's mostly because of stress and reality all at once kicking in.
Having you guys cheer me on surely helps -specially since IRL friends don't get it.
You guys get it. I wish you didn't though...
Oh yeah - there is only a slight chance I will POAS. I mean slight! LOL
I don't think I'll be able to - I just don't. In fact, I think the RE will have to call DH with the results of first beta becuase I want to hear it from him and no one else if it didn't work.
is that wrong? I mean if It is bfp - shouldn't I be the one to tell DH like normal pregnancies go? UGH!
Gretchen, I'm SO SO excited for you....it's just around the corner! I'm glad you found someone to talk things through with and I pray the acupuncture can help calm things a little bit as well. I have everything crossed for you!! Arms, legs, toes, fingers!

As far as testing, of course I want you to pee on a stick every hour from now until your BFP, but you have to do what is right for you. Don't worry about what is "normal" or what anyone else wants...do this Gretchen-Style
