The Waiting Room

Who would of thought that daily injections would be easier then the two week wait to get your blood work? I could inject myself all day if it meant I didn't have to wait another week to find out the results. Every tingle, cramp, mood swing has me googling. Googling questions like "is this normal" "IVF and cramping" only to get a mixed review of ladies telling their stories. One would say 'that's a good sign' then the next 'that happened to me and I got a negative result'. It truly is enough to drive you crazy.

I did read something that gave me a little comfort. A woman wrote about the two week wait saying 'you are pregnant until proven otherwise'. This brought the positive thoughts back to me. She's right, everything is going great.


  1. Oh man that 2WW is the worst. I wish I could give you some useful advice - but I am sure you have heard it all before. Just very best wishes for you and your dear little embryos.

    Question: Were you able to freeze any extra embies?

  2. No, I had really 3 really good quality eggs. Implanted 2 and tried to freeze the good egg and one that was rated just a little lower. Neither survived the freezing process. Total bummer news that I don't think they should tell you tell after the 2ww. Trying to keep a positive outlook when I first heard that news was really hard.
