Trying-to-Conceive Blog

The embryos have landed!

Two little high quality beauties were transferred this morning! I got to watch the little blip on the screen and then pretty much immediately begged to go pee, lol. I hope after surviving the ice age they'll decide my uterus is the perfect new warm cozy home. ♡ We're traveling home today where I plan to keep my feet warm, eat avocados, and slice up a pineapple for good measure. 

This whole experience has been pretty surreal in a sense. We've received so much support and love! As one of our close friends told us, "If science can make my hair grow back then surely it can help you have a kid." :'D

I would not call this a ten-day wait so much as a 10-day exercise in patience and faith. The doc gave us a 70% chance of pregnancy per the statistics, but I don't need statistics to know that God truly works miracles, just like when He gave us three eggs and three embryos.

Sorry I'm being so sappy. Blame the drugs, lol. Speaking of drugs, those PIO injections are a BEAST!!! Like wtf??? I've got dh doing them so far and I think we're getting better at them because that first day I was in complete agony. I travel some for work though so I'm planning to work myself up to doing them solo if needed. We've so far been sticking with the same side, then I think we'll switch every 3 days. I just can't imagine having both sides feel that sore at once, I'd be bed ridden. But I'm taking it all in stride. :) Never thought I'd be grateful for painful shots but here I am! There's beauty even in the storm, I think I've learned.

Anyway, that's all I've got for now. Thank you all so so much for the prayers, thoughts, and all the sweet comments you've left me. I feel so humbled by it all and can only say that I'm overflowing with gratitude.

Faith, trust, and baby dust!!!


10 days. So short and yet so long. Can't wait to see your bfp.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!! I am so friggin excited for you!!!! Impatiently waiting for that Big Fat Postive. So big. So fat. So positive. Eek!!!!!!

So Exciting! Did you decide if you will test early or wait for beta? Either way, its going to be positive! So glad things went smoothly today! Keep you feet up and envision those babies setting up shop for the next 9 months!

Hehehe! Thanks, ladies! Really hoping for the best. I think I'm going to wait until the beta. I've never been one to poas often, so perhaps no need to start now. But of course if I get closer and just want to test that's an option. It's sort of funny already being the equivalent of 4dpo today! (1dp3dt)

Hi Spazzle, I haven’t been on here in a very long time but when I was I used to follow you. Just recently I’ve checked in and I was so delighted to see your about to do your first FET! I just wanted to wish you all the luck in the world! I will be sending you the most positive of vibes and really hope this is your time. Try to stay calm and yet busy over the wait. We were so lucky to get our BFP on our 2nd ICSI in 2016 and now have a beautiful 10 month old baby . We just went back to try for a sibling for him with our first FET but unfortunately it didn’t work. Those fails never get any easier. We will take a break from it all now for a little while and then go back for our last 2 Frosties. Anyway congrats on being PUPO!

Aww heyyy, gra.paul! Welcome back to ttc. :) It is so fun to see a lot of people returning, and to hear about all these babies is just the best. Thanks so much for thinking of me, and good luck with this next go 'round!!!

I feel bad posting much these days. The boards are so quiet that I feel like I'm taking over! Very different from the old days, for sure. Anyway, I'm 4dp3dt today (equivalent to 7dpo) and all I can think is, "Oohhhhh we're halfway there! Ooooo-ohhh! Livin' on a prayer." :'D

No need to feel bad. Posts keep the site going!

Eagerly waiting for news

*jeopardy music* Next week feels so far away! Lol. I've got some stuff going on this weekend with a friend so hopefully that'll keep me occupied; I don't want to test then bc I don't want to overshadow our friends' weekend with my emotions. I've toyed with Sunday morning (9dp3dt / "12dpo"), considered again not testing at all and just waiting for that email from the dr office about the beta. Regardless, not a ton going on here! Running warm, super thirsty, finally getting the hang of those pio injections. I wish I had a point of reference for how I should feel right now but alas, I've never had a medicated estrogen/progesterone 2ww before! Soooo we wait...

It has been a few years now and I am So happy to see you come so far in this journey. You are the only reason I still visit this blog and you can be sure I am rooting for you all the way. My warm wishes and prayers are with you. Waiting to hear about the truly deserved BFP.

Hey, Twitter! Thanks so much. ♡ I feel like I'm getting the old gang back together around here! Hehe. How are you these days? I hope everything is good. :)

How are you holding up Spazzle?

Checking in!! Hope you enjoyed the last of your tww!!

It's looking pretty grim. Bfn on all hpts, including this morning (day before beta). Dh has already given up hope and gone into mourning. I'm stuck somewhere in the middle. I know they say not to test at home and to wait for beta, because about 10% of women would not test positive with urine at that time. 10% isn't nothing. It's a tiny sliver, really. I keep running through my head "believe without seeing", but in all likelihood, I will officially have my heart broken tomorrow.

Oh no spazzle. I don’t want to say I’m sorry until you know for sure, because there is still that glimmer of hope- but I have been where you are. Unfortunately the first cycle is very hit or miss. It feels like it HAS to work because so much goes into it, but it’s a big learning curve. My heart is with you. The only thing that worked for my husband and myself was to focus all of our energy on figuring out a way to go straight into another cycle. However, sometimes you need time to just process. No matter what happens we are all rooting for you to find your happy. Praying it’s just late implantation!

Helo Spazzle, you might not remember me. I used to post here a long time ago then deleted my account and was no longer be able to post. I have followed your journey throughout. I had to create a new account because I really wanted to comment on this. You and your DH are in my thoughts. I am so deeply sorry for how much you guys are going through. There are no words which can console you. But I wanted to know that I am thinking of you. Yes, there is still a chance that things will turn out fine but I can relate to your DH feelings. I have gone through a failed IVF. It is hard so very hard to keep going and keep hoping. I know you will find the strength to move on from this transfer, whatever that means for you. I so much relate to your struggles, i wish i could do something more than just posting. It's a feeling that only if you have gone through infertility you can actually understand. I wish you strength and peace. Love

Thinking of you today spazzle!

You're in my thoughts Spazzle. I hope this works out for you.
