Johnnys- How exciting! You got this!

Danaa- Dont be scared! I cant wait to hear how many freeze! Mine were frozen at day 6.

AFM- Hubby told me to schedule myself a massage for tomorrow for tomorrow, so i did! So excited for a little relaxing time for myself. Gonna have a "me" day! Estrogen is up to 3 pills a day. Unless they have to up the dose at all, this was my last increase. I will remain on this up until transfer. I feel great, completely calm, and ready for this baby to implant! Hubs and i prayed together specifically about our desires for this to work, and i woke up this morning super calm and unanxious :) Our God provides what we need, when we need it, and i needed to feel at peace today!

Hows everyone feeling?

Annaluca- Thank you so much for sharing that poem, it's so beautiful and so true it had me balling! This whole journey has definitely changed me, it's taught me humility and gratitude like nothing else has :)

I had my ultrasound yesterday (day 6 of stims) and the doctor said everything is looking good. He said I'm a great egg producer, I have 14 good size follicles and a bunch of smaller ones. I go back on Saturday for another ultrasound and will hopefully find out my retrieval date :) I'm feeling pretty good, definitely have a bloated belly and last night I woke up with some sharp pains that went away quickly. I've noticed that when I have to pee I have to GO like it's serious business lol

9 5-day embryos is fantastic! Congrats Danaa! That will make it easy to relax for the next little bit until transfer.

Is it me, or does EVERYONE who plans a FET also plan on completely cleaning their house between retrieval and transfer?! It's one tiny benefit to IVF...a built in "pre-nesting" time : )

As for me, I started my ganerellix yesterday, and had bloodwork and an ultrasound today. I'm day 8 of stims, and I had 6 10+follicles in each ovary and a few other smaller ones too, so hopefully I'm going to have a good number of eggs to collect next week : )
It just gets more real everyday!

I hope everyone else is doing great.

Ladies... time is going sooo slow! Is it weird that im kinda excited to start the progesterone injections?? Terrified of finding out if it will hurt, but excited to start the last step before transfer..... ahhh!!! Nothing new here. I started to drink Pomegranate jucie, i heard it helps with lining. who knows if it does, but since im in the process of thickening it, i thought why not try!

So I just took another HPT and it was negative. I'm sad. It's hard not to be when I'm already 9dpt. I don't know what I will do once Tuesday is here and I have to take the blood test.

Ok so I was testing all week on cheap internet tests and noticed line getting darker. My last hcg trigger was Friday 1st the July. My otd is this Monday. I have 2 tests from clinic so I used one on Tuesday and got a faint line barely there (it is a 20iu test) I did the second test this morning and the same test had a blazing positive. So I took a digi and got 2-3 weeks pregnant. Omg do you think this is real? I had strong cramping the last few days so thought something was happening. I am 2 days away from otd. But I think if it was still trigger from over a week ago it wouldn't be enough to show 2-3 weeks on a digi? I then did a frer and the test line is darker than the control...could this really be it girls or am I testing too soon?
I am 12p5dt... :omg:
