@Caesardust im sorry hun. This journey just sux. Big hugs xxx
Hmm it was pancakes for me this morning, with Lemon & Sugar...I'm with you on the sugar confessions @BlondeinBrisvegas...I've tried to curb it myself with the weight slowly creeping on over the last year and a half with the IVF. I have to eat all my naughty foods while DP is away working so I don't have to listen to him growling at me when he's home...I eat nice and healthy...we he doesn't know won't hurt me
One more sleep for me to decide our fate I'm feeling pretty good to be honest, usually by now I'd 'have that feeling' and usually be right. This time I'm still feeling good, I think just knowing that our embryo's aren't made from my crappy eggs has made a difference to how I'm feeling about this cycle.
It's gorgeous weather for 'doing nothing' which is what I'm doing...catching up on some TV and procrastinating about doing some housework (I'm terrible at domestic duties). I keep thinking that I'll get some mop body suits made up for any little babies we have, so they can clean the floors while they crawl around...hehe is that terrible. I so which I'd thought of that 20 odd years ago when I had my son...I was OCD about cleaning and housework back then...oh how I've changed.
Enjoy what's left of your weekend ladies!
@Caesardust & @tuxcat ....you need to take the time to lick your wounds. My younger sister first offer to be our donor after my very first IVF cycle when we only got 1 egg and were devastated...she was always going to be our back up plan. Little did we know at that time her AMH was less than mine and her eggs crappier than mine. It took me a good 6mths to get my head around even considering using her eggs another 6mths to get around to doing a donor cycle with her eggs...but our back up plan was a fizzer. (My DP is adopted so he was in from the get go...to him family isn't about genetics, its about who raises you and loves you). And it took me probably another month after one last OE cycle to sit myself down and decide what I really wanted...a baby with my eggs, that wasn't going to happen or a baby so my DP and I could have a family of our own. These decisions don't come easily...you will know what is right for you, when the time is right for you.
Just be kind to yourselves and your DP/DH for now...its not time for making decisions.
Oh @Caesardust. I'm so sorry hun. I really feel for you. Massive massive hugs. You put so much into this cycle. Thank goodness it's a rainy Sunday so you can wollow today. What was your plan B...was it donor eggs? I hope you have comfort food on hand and loving hugs from DP.
amie999 when I've had a 3dt the BT was 14 days later. If you go early it could get quite stressful as a BFP might have a low number and you'll have to retest/be in limbo land. However if it shows up on a HPT then I'd test, or if AF arrives I'd do BT ASAP so you can get off the meds.
