Waiting, worrying

The worry is starting to seep into the chink in my armor. Right on time, 7 days after egg retrieval, 7 to go before beta.

I hope hope hope that this worked. I am trying to stay positive, I really am. But then. All I'm used to is failure and it's hard to imagine that THIS really will be the time it works. It's almost unimaginable. I keep telling myself that this time I had coculture, and TWO good embryos whereas before I've only ever had ONE good embryo at transfer (at best) even if I had more also-rans along for the ride.

This is going to be a long week, folks. If only they could put me into a coma for the next week so I don't have to wait so long.

I'm just imagining your little gals tucking themselves in right about now and getting lulled by your fun accent.
I am so full of hope and optimism for you.
It's time. It is BEYOND time.

How are you feeling physically? Any odd aches or pains or fatigue?

Hi Sarah -

Glad you made it home ok.

I have to confess that, I too, left my checkbook in the hotel safe in NY. Different hotel, same problem.

So the dreaded 2nd week of the 2ww. I know that there is not much I can say, and I don't have the medical expertise necessary to render you unconscious for the next 6 days, but I will highlight the fact that, actually, you have your best shot so far at success this time around. So if there was ever a cycle to be hopeful - this would be it!!!

Hang in there,
Alacrity

Ah yes, the "coma-after-ET" idea. It is so lovely and shouldn't one of these extremely well-schooled RE's figure out a way to make that happen?! That would be the best possible way to go -- have ET and wake up PG in 14 days. Ah dreams are what makes the world go round.

Hang in there. 7 days will pass it will just feel horrible while it does. You can make it. We're all out here thinking about you and hoping hoping hoping.
