I will tell you that this 2ww went by so fast -I cannot believe how fast. With you being here around the holidays I am sure it won't seem long at all! There is just so much else going on and it helps pass the time. I wish you luck! I go for my beta tomorrow!

Hi Layla,

I posted on teh other board, but I agree....the positive of being one of the 'crazies' who does IVF around the holidays, is that at least, hopefully, the time will pass by more quickly than at other times of the year. I told you....the waiting is the hardest part!!! UGH!!!

Sounds great!!!

The other advantage of IVF is that the 2WW usually isn't a full 2 weeks ;)

Hope you get the best Christmas present ever!!!!
