    I'm going nuts waiting for the phone call to tell me how many embryos made it to day 3!!! I'm never going to survive tww! Lol.

    Providing genetics come back fine, then ET is wed (6/6) and BT 18/6.

    I hope your tww goes faster then anticipated! Xx

    Hi wishful and gekko - I'll jump in - BT on 14/6. Currently 3dp3dt or is it 4 days if it was on Friday, not sure how that works! Been dying to jump on google as I'm not feeling the best but haven't succumbed so far! Feeling so tired, crampy, peeing often, bloated, sore nipples, dizzy and a bit nauseous. I don't remember feeling like this so soon after ET last time and I don't remember feeling crampy at all so I hope it's my beautiful bubbas digging in for the next 9 months getting cosy. How are you guys feeling?x

    Nearly ET time how exciting! How many eggs did you get on collection? We got 5 but only 3 got inseminatd but they all made it to day 3 I- praying the same happens for you. We had the two embies with more cells transferred and waiting to hear back about the third as we made the decision to keep it growing so praying we have a little blastie to freeze today : )

    I hope you can freeze your little one today! And I hope the other 2 are super sticky!!!

    We had 11 collected. 8 suitable for fertilization. 5 fertilized! STILL WAITING to hear how many are still growing! The biggest hurdle will be whether they are genetically balanced! Soooo nervous and distracted! Not many report cards being written today!!

    Ladies I came across this article MONTHS ago and HAD to look it up again to share - a little something to make you lol during this horrible TWW....

    "As any woman who is trying to get pregnant can tell you, the two weeks from ovulation (or in our case ET) to the due date of your next period (or in our case BT) are pure torture. You promise yourself you'll just wait it out, distract yourself with other activities and you won't even THINK about taking a pregnancy test until you're at least a day overdue. Then something happens - your breasts start hurting in a slightly different way than they did before, you get slightly nauseous, you have some spotting....or nothing happens, but you find yourself waking up wishing you could go to sleep again so that it would be another day closer to knowing. You can't think, you can't sleep, you can't work, you start taking HPTs days before they are even possibly meaningful. You are deep in the abyss of the TWO-WEEK-WAIT! In my opinion, it's no use advising women stop obsessing, it's impossible. Instead, I give you a list of more productive ways to obsess. Please note, however, that there is a limit each woman must define for herself, between indulging in some baby-daydreaming and going overboard. I've included some examples below:

    1. Take a walk around your neighborhood and figure out what will be the best route for strolls with the baby. Find areas with nice sidewalks and easy curbs. Go ahead and daydream. But do NOT buy a stroller for the dog.

    2. Clean out your closet to make room for maternity stuff you'll be buying soon. Try on anything you haven't worn for six months. Yes, if you wish, you may put a pillow in your undies to see what will work as maternity wear. But taking a picture of yourself like that is going too far.

    3. Start a journal. Write down everything you're feeling. It will be a great opening chapter for your child's baby book. If you can't put your feelings into words, draw something, try to create a symbol that expresses the frustration you're feeling. Don't get that symbol tattooed on your ankle.

    4. Plant a hope garden. Or a hope rose bush. Or a hope citrus tree. You want to grow something inside of you, well start by growing something outside of you. Nurture it. Feed it. Give it water. Talk to it. But do not send out birth announcements.

    5. Get better at photography. Really learn how to work all the buttons and settings on your camera. Experiment! If you have a digital camera, get all the downloading and editing stuff worked out. You will be well prepared once you have a baby, and will be able to get some great shots and get them emailed to your family before the child's graduation. Do not take photos of your cervical mucus. Even if Tony Weschler begs you.

    6. Make an appeal to the committee meeting going on inside you. Sperm, egg, uterus, corpus luteum, progesterone....they are in there either making a baby or not. Treat them like any other unruly committee you've ever addressed. Yes that's right, go ahead and talk to them. Put your hands on your stomach and tell them how much you respect them. Make your best argument in favor of a baby, and then let them decide. It's out of your hands. Addressing the committee within earshot of normal people is not recommended.

    7. Paint your toenails. Imagine how difficult this will be when you are pregnant. Go shopping for the perfect pink and blue nail polishes in preparation for a celebration polish. Alternating colours on the day you find out your pregnant, or a single colour for the day you find out the baby's sex. Don't be tempted to paint a cycle day countdown on your big toes.

    8. Make a cup of herbal tea. It is a nice ritual: boiling the water, adding the tea leaves, pouring into a nice china cup, adding some milk and sugar, sipping perfectly. Ahhhh. There's nothing that a nice cup of tea won't help. Yeah right. Well it does kill a little bit of time.

    9. Swim laps. Think about sperm and how they need to swim to your egg. Imagine that you are the sperm, the end of the pool is the egg, then GO, GO GO! Don't wear a tail or anything. Just imagine it quietly.

    10. Make lists. List who you will tell when you get pregnant and in what order. List all the chores that you need to get done instead of obsessing about this. List all the healthy activities you intend to do this week. List all the girl and boy names you like. Lists are helpful for all sorts of things, most of all for passing time rather than actually doing something.

    11. Create a fertility dance. Choose whatever music speaks to your soul and make up a dance routine as a prayer to the universe for the growth of an embryo. Move your hips, rotate your belly, let your arms flow....but close the curtains

    12. Prepare a folic acid feast. Cream of broccoli soup appetizer, followed by a spinach lasagne, enriched in a whole grain garlic bread and frozen orange juice sorbet for dessert. Dedicate the meal to your baby to be. Just don't set a highchair at the table in his or her honor

    13. Delegate the burden of the two-week-wait. Clearly someone has to worry constantly during this time, but does it have to be you? Divide the days up amount your best friends and closest family. On their assigned days they are required to think, wonder, and worry all day day about whether you are pregnant or not. At the end of the day they have to call or send an email describing how agonizing it was. Also they have to report to you if they had any "symptoms", such as sore breasts, excessive urination, nausea, bleeding, fatigue...you will be surprised how many people, male and female, have early pregnancy symptoms if they just look for them.

    14. Write a list of 14 things to do during the TWW. For me, this killed nearly 3 hours. Now what? I've still got 9 days to go.....aaarrrrgggghhhh"

    Hope you ladies enjoyed reading this xxxx

    That's great gekko, so will you have a day 2,3 or 5 transfer? We found out that little embie number three didn't make it - extra prayers that these two are super sticky xx

    That's very exciting! We were wanting to have our first ever 5 dayer too but as we only had 3 fertilized eggs they recommended we had transfer two days earlier - so what day are you up to now?
