Sorry to hear about the negs. What can you say. it sucks. I like the champagne idea. I must mention it to my DH in the event of a
Welcome to the newbies.I hope the 2ww goes faster for you than it is doing for me. Still got five days to go. Five days!!
I am in great need of the Pee stick police here. I wont wait till saturday i just know it. i am useless. and its my mother in laws birthday party on sat so the last thing i need is bad news on that day.
I might just pop into boots and have a look at them.
Hi Girls - i am a newie to the 2ww, had ET on 11th September and testing on 23/9. I'm a bit worried to say the least, out of 9 eggs we got 5 embryos, 2 replaced (7 cell and 5 cell on day 3) and I've just heard from the lab that the 2 we were hoping to freeze stopped dividing at 4 cells. Makes me fear that the 2 they've put back in are the same. Sorry to be negative but can't help these gloomy thoughts....
, I only had two to freeze too and they only ended up freezing one. lets hope they have put the best ones back in which is what they are meant to do im sure! you only need one dont forget. my doc said he would rather have one good one that half a dozen not so good ones.
Sicknote i am laughing at your post. yes i went in and saw them. buy one get one free and, well the rest is history. i am calling the pee stick police . lets hope they get to me on time.
i keep dreaming about pee sticks. the other night i dreamt that you had to spit on them instead of pee on them and when i woke up my mouth was full of saliva. am i sick or what!
ps having phone line put in on sat. no more library visits and funny looks. hoorah
Wow second post in one day- you can tell I'm off work!
Just had acupuncture (have been going every week for last 3 months) and she told me that she had just been to a lecture by a japanese infertility practitioner- she had some extra things she did to me to help the embryos, but she also said he had mentioned I should try to keep my feet warm, and have a hot foot bath every evening. She also said sesame seeds and bars were worth eating, as well as arrowroot.
This may or may not be of any help to anybody!!!
But I thought the foot bath idea sounded quite good.
Me again, just found this on the care board posted by a girl called Maddie and i found it hilarious so i thought i would share it with you. ( not that i am sad and spend hours looking at every fertility site that i can find or anything
I think if you fulfill the set criteria you can be an honoury member of the 2ww
1.You must have between 1 and 3 embryo's in situ in any part of your body where you think they might stick
2.You must have a proven willingness to part your legs for strangers at any time when requested to do so (without asking "why?" or automatically replying "I have a headache")
3. You must be capable of thinking negative thoughts at least 84 times a day. These may or may not be interspersed with totally logical, positive ones, which instantly become illogical if DH or DP happens to suggest them
4 You should have the capacity to remember that the popular phrase "My Ass is Exit Only" does not apply during the 2ww
5.Remember that the CARE staff do NOT know it all, so you therefore need to perfect the ability to sneeze whilst clutching your belly with one hand, and sealing up your Lady Garden with the other. We all know that sneezing CAN make them fall out, no matter what they say
6 You should be affluent enough to either have a Stenna Stairlift installed or get a downstairs cloakroom fitted. This will be invaluable for when the 5 minute knicker-checking routine commences
7 You must demonstrate the ability to self diagnose any ailment arising and learn how to identify it with symptoms of early pregnancy or ET. For example, Athletes Foot is directly associated with ET, whilst a Verruca is clearly an indication that you are pregnant
8. You should teach DH or DP the secret of his successful 2ww. The skill they need to learn for this has been simplified to assist their complex learning mechanism. The key is two words "YES, DEAR"
9 You must be in possession of enough willpower to make it beyond Day 2 without buying every HPT you can lay your hands on
In the absence of above said willpower, you should possess enough not to actually use them
It is very important to remember that the Little White Candles are for medicinal use only. It is NOT acceptable to use them as night lights, as a centre piece for your table decoration when entertaining, or for any other ornamental purpose.
newbie to this thread and late starter! may i join your list please.....think i pass the afore mentioned list with flying colours (although i did buy a back up preg test on day 2 - may i be let off?! ).
i test wednesday this week 15/9, same as debs - we were in rooms next to each other for et at care!
Hope you are all well. Good luck for tomorrow Chazzie and anyone else who is testing in the next few days. 8 days left for me, I am going from one extreme to the other at the mo, I feel fairly positive and then reality strikes and I know that it might not work. Oh well a week tomorrow and the waiting will be over.
Congrats to all the positives. Chazzie, San2 and a load others I've missed while neglecting this thread.
Just hoping some of your luck rubs off.
Nine days until I test. Well, officially nine days. If I make it that far! Actually I'm really good. I don't even buy the HPT until the day before. Not that I'm not thinking about it. I'd say probably about 95% of my waking thoughts actually, probably not helped by the constant reminder of my boobs which seem to have been pumped full of fluid and blown up to impossible size. I mean they were big before but...well, DH likes them, but they're so tender he can't touch. Shame eh!
Queen of Sheba, your post made me laugh like a loon. I've probably gone and shaken my embryos out now! Well it beats sneezing them out.
