The only reason I said I hope not was because I was hoping everyone had moved over to the pregnancy boards which i'm assuming is the case. Yay everyone, I hope you get your BFP very very soon, stay positive, I know it's hard and stinks. You can do it tho!

Hi! You may not know me but I remember you. I think you got a BFP shortly after I joined and possibly before I started posting much, I remember reading alot of your threads anyway. I joined in November of 2011.

Hi! I am so glad you wrote! I see you were planning an IVF for week of Jan 21st? How did that all go, how are you feeling? I feel so terrible I haven't kept in touch with anyone much, but I plan to do better. I was on here alot and it really did help me so much. I wish I would have had this when I was trying with our first! Cause I just stayed at home, shut up and cried alone to my hubby. I had just found out I was pregnant in Nov so I am sure that's why I didn't see your post anymore. I wanted so badly to stay in this community but I also didn't want to hurt anyone by being here, if that makes sense? It stinks to hear about everyone being pregnant or who has kids when all you think about every waking moment is when will you get your turn. I will be praying for you and hope we can chat more. Thank you so much for writing!

We ended up having the egg retrieval last Friday and a Day Three Transfer on Monday. My RE wanted 2 days of bed rest so I am off work today just resting. Three eggs were retrieved but the RE only took the best ones since we only wanted 2 fertilized. They did ICSI on 2 and one didn't make it but the one that did was an 8 cell Grade A with no fragmentation. The Embryologist called it "Perfect"! My first Beta will probably be February 11th but it they decide for me to not take the last hCG booster then the 1st will be on the 8th. I can't wait! I was doing well until after the transfer when they pointed out on the monitor the fluid with the embryo in it. After they left the room I burst into tears because this is the closest we have ever gotten to our dream. DH has been wonderful through all of this and has been talking about how he really wants this alot too. (He normally is very serious and matter-of-fact and just listens to me rant) Anyway, Thank you for the prayers I appreciate it alot! I understand why you didn't stay in the community, it would be a hard decision to make having made friends here but not wanting to hurt them at the same time.

I am so excited for youa nd will be praying for the little bean to grow! That is exciting. Makes you want to take a test I know but just know that it would be negative now anyways. So try to wait. I know that has to be soooo hard. I pray this works for you both. I know it's probably very expensive as well as so emotionally draining on you both! Keep me posted! I didn't want to hurt anyone for sure and felt like I would being in here with 2 healthy boys.

Thank you! Speaking for myself you are not hurting me at all! I know you must have gone through some of the same things we all are/have you have just been fortunate to get beyond this journey. We will get there too someday!!

I'm going to start testing Wednesday! I have been doing hCG booster shots so I want to test them out. I go for my 1st Beta on the 11th and I have enough tests to do one every morning until then! I know the first few will probably be false positives but that's ok. I've had nothing to do since the transfer and if I know I can take a test every morning then I will have something planned that I have to do! I'm sure that sounds silly! It's been going by pretty quick so far and I'm glad. I feel good and have just been praying about it!

We have nick-named him/her already! My DH calls me Pooky-Doo (funny, I know) after we got home from the transfer we were laying together on the couch and he said the only thing that would make that better was to have some little Doo's laying there too!! So we are calling him/her Little Doo!! I have been praying that Little Doo sticks around so we can embarrass them with the nick-name when they are much older!!!

Well the progesterone raises dramatically in early pregnancy to maintain the pregnancy. That sounds really promising! Good luck!!

Leah25Brooke2 replied to sproutkm's response:
I know EXACTLY how you feel. I really do. There were a couple times I even posted on here saying that I just knew I was pregnant.. then I wasn't. I learned eventually to not read into things or get my hopes up. But it was really hard. I'm hoping for you and I really do think that the result is pretty promising. I will be checking back in to see! When do you test?
