Mumtochris-I had three lead follies (I know, still much more than one) but ended up with 14 mature eggs!!
Thank you so much for the support girlies, I love hearing all the positive stories of AF to BFPs! Although it's dampened my spirits I still refuse to say out loud that's it's over until I get BT results.

haha It's true girls. Glad I left in that respect. But I must say, I was feeling very keen to move back to Canberra. But DH is a real Sydney boy and just isn't ready for that. Change scares him.
Just a quick one girls.... Thinking of have this week as a 'sickie' so I can totally relax in these next important few days. I have 3 weeks off from next week to move house but feel this wk is most important for my embies sticking...
Thoughts??? Am I over exaggerating?????
I concur with CG, but then I pretty much quit working all together so I can focus on IVF! There were other reasons too, i.e. I have no career, and every job I do I end up hating, so we're seeing how we go living off DH's salary since once I'm a mum I'll need to be at home anyway. So I'm all for taking time off during IVF. For me having a baby is currently the number 1 priority in my life, equal only to DH (or possibly a little higher, but don't tell him I said that! ). So if chilling out and relaxing could possibly help in any way, damn it, I'm going to do it! One of the numerous disappointments of my last cycle was that during my TWW I was so busy getting things sorted for our move to Brisbane that I hardly got any time to relax, and was also doing a lot of physical labour (packing, moving heavy things, cleaning). This time, I am going to fly back to Brisbane after my transfer, then spend the following two weeks doing bugger all.
GStef, I did the same thing as Sariele... gave up my career for now as this is the number one priority but my work made it easy for me to leave at the end. So if it's rest you need then take it, I don't think stress helps especially in those first few days.
