Third-Party Reproduction

Waiting is exhausting!

I am not a patient person, so waiting and wondering is simply killing me. The anticipation of, did this DEmbryo transfer work ??? is brutal. Transfer was on 5/9. Beta isn't until 5/22. And they had me do an Ovidrel injection on 5/13, so that darn trigger will probably be in my system until my beta. Arrrruuuuuugggghhh! I'm trying to stay busy, but it isn't easy!

Good luck to everyone!! And thanks for letting me vent.

    I was thinking about you this morning and how the wait is going. It is killing me as well. I don't go for my test until 5/23. My mind is all over the place. I have a small pain and I think something is wrong. The next pain I'm thinking that's implantation. Lord have mercy!  (~8

     FX for you and everyone in the 2ww.

    I was thinking of you today too! Oh the humanity, we had our transfer the same day and they are making you wait one day longer. Not fair!! I'm with you - my head is all over the place. Last night I went through the "nope, this didn't work, who am I kidding" phase. Today, I feel like there's still a chance. Of course there's a chance, but your mind totally plays tricks.

    Hang in there, FX for you too!
