    I know what you mean @tuxcat. just having the sads now. the crinone probably isn't helping (it's felt like mega-pms since I've been on it). I only have 1 frostie from the first cycle. it was slightly behind the main one which didn't work. I'm glad that FET cycle was cancelled due to hormone levels prior to my appendix or we would have lost it too. I think these 3/4 heard me talking the other night when I said it'd be good to know early if they weren't going to make it. I might have jinxed them, though obviously they weren't going to make it. I just keep thinking what if we can only create life that lives for 5 days (seems to be the case so far). the only good thing I can think of is that at least this saved another ~4months, if they were going to be the leading ones in those months - it's better to know now and have them go early. still sad though, poor little things. I get too attached too early I think. had a stressful work day just prior to transfer, and caught up with the work just now. am meant to goto a customer site for another job but can't do it today. too teary. I'm not usually a teary person. thinking I'll have a 'mental health' afternoon, just checking work emails at home

    Yes, I don't have long to go now. It's been a long, tiring journey to get here - 3 years of full-on IVF, full of crying, howling, and stress that's still very to the front of my mind. I've been told that once baby girl is here, that eventually those three years will gradually disappear from my mind, and I really can't wait for that to happen.

    Then I've spent most of the 8 months being pregnant, being in denial that it's really happening. I've tried to enjoy being pregnant, as I didn't really have any bad pregnancy symptoms in the first 7 months, apart from some nausea, but to be honest, I kept thinking that something would go wrong, so never got my hopes up. I still catch myself thinking the worst, but I only have between 2-4 weeks to go, that I think it may turn out fine. I've only just today got my bag out to pack for the hospital. I guess this has always been ways for me to cope, whereas others would be more optimistic. I can't wait until I know she's all OK, and is in my arms, and the next part of my life starts xx

    MGCBertie - I don't think I started truly breathing until Alexa let out her first scream.

    Thanks for the roll call @MGC Bertie you are a super star. I am so excited for you as we were cycle buddies a few times and I remember your heartache.

    I too am feeling very emotional today. We went to the pearl harbour memorials and whenever I was listening to the survivors on the audio tour I cried. I don't have any family members that fought in WW2, although dh's grandfather did, (but in Egypt and Italy/France), but it was very emotional. I seem to be swaying between cranky and crying, luckily I know it's just the progesterone. I think the oil injections are stronger and then I'm doing a pessary at night too😁
    @tuxcat and @winsor I feel your pain, I never got any frosties, but let's hope you don't need any and this is your bfp xxx

    thanks Chiefsgirl. the war memorials are emotional places to visit.
    yeah I'm cranky & emotional too. (cranky earlier in the week) having pessary morning & night. had the blood test today for progesterone and they said it's all ok (I could have told them that with these side effects ha)

    MGCBertie, everything will be fine. I can't wait for you to meet your bub too. 2-4 weeks, wow. that's very exciting with a bit of nervewracking thrown in. good luck

    Great egg numbers Charlie! Good luck for fertilisation.

    And congrats midnite on transfer, hope I'm getting that right.

    I'm not doing too well trying to be half detached from this whole ivf thing. And with popping in here less frequently I am not keeping track of where you are all up to properly, apologies.

    Ha Tuxcat I did go shopping, once I had blown the 5K with Bongley's BF I thought why not spend a little bit more. I bought exercise gear from lululemon, to loose the 4kg I've put on throughout ivf and boring work shoes. Hope you're not getting too down. God the TWW is bad. In answer to your question, still not sure about any more ivf although it did come up in my consult today so not ruling it out.

    You too Winsor, take a day off if you can and do some pampering or like me, retail therapy. It works to lift the mood .

    Good to hear from you Bertie. You are so close now.
