Beta is Wednesday....very nervous!

I just want this so badly but I'm really nervous about the beta. I also want to POAS but I promised I wouldn't but DH has gone shopping and I'm so tempted! I have no real symptoms to speak of other than being very hungry, nauseous and tired the past few days. I've had a headache off and on but all these could be from the progesterone gel. I woke up sweating this a.m. and that scares me even though my temps were still high -could they be high because of the gel but sweaty because my lining is breaking down? ugh...just want to know but only if it's good news which I'm trying to stay positive that it is. Please God Please!

Any advice from anyone??

Thanks everyone! The wait is the worst part and I'm trying to stay calm but I'm so nervous. I have been feeling like it's going to be positive, just knew it's going to be when I went in to the RE but since I left the office I feel completely un-pregnant (more so than the past few days) if that makes sense. ugh....I'll be sure to post as soon as I know. They told me they would call as soon as possible.

Thank you everyone for your support and positive words. I went shopping today and that has helped me think about other things. I did buy some little baby booties with DH's favorite team logo because I am thinking I will get good news tomorrow. Can't say I'm not thinking positively! :)

I have my b/w at 8am and then have to go with DH to his doctor appt which should take most of the morning (he has to see a foot doctor) so hopefully they will call while we're together with the good news! The earliest they have called is 11am but last pg test it wasn't until 2pm when they called so I'll be taking a lot of deep breaths tomorrow. I'll post as soon as I can.

Thank you!

When I was waiting for the beta from my first IVF, it helped to think of a "Plan B" and even a "Plan C" in the event the result was negative. That way, everything wasn't riding on a positive outcome (although of course that's what I was hoping for and ultimately received).


For example, my Plan B (at that time) was to try again with my frozen embryos. My Plan C was to look into training to become foster parents, since I knew a lot of kids get adopted via fostering. So I researched foster parenting and kept my mind occupied while waiting for my beta.


Now that I'm waiting for my beta for IVF #2 -- with my frozen embies -- my Plan B is again looking into foster parenting if this doesn't work. I don't have a Plan C yet!

- IVF with DE October 2007, Single-embryo transfer
- DD born July 2008
- FET with 2 embies 12/14/09
- Beta on 12/23/09. What a great Xmas present a BFP would be!

Hi Carolyn, the waiting is the hardest part....


Can you go do accupuncture or something relaxing to try to keep your mind off of things? I know, easier said than done....right?
I've gotten a BFP 2 times and both times I was shocked...no symptoms. I know you want to feel something, but most people don't, I'm afraid! GL and try to remain calm....Wednesday will be here soon and i am praying for

Carolyn,


I really didn't have to many pregnancy symptoms before my beta or I was in denial.
