I want to be excited about that special moment but I'm so very afraid to get my hopes up. Advice?

I plan the baby's room in my head, so "I hope for the best and prepare for the worse,"

Thanks. Our clinic even gives us a picture of the two embryos they are putting in. I am afraid of getting all attached then it doesn't work out :( I read on this board about how many of you have done this and didn't have good results :( Hugs to you all.

I've been trying to figure out how to answer this question. Our day was special just in that we were out of town (traveled to the clinic) so we were out of our daily routine. DH brought me lunch so I could stay on "bedrest" for the day.

That night we went to Joe's Crab Shack for dinner ... and that has sort of become a talismen for me. I bought DD1 a "my first Joe's Crab Shack" t-shirt, so every time I see the shirt, I think of that day.

Definitely think positively - lots of positive vibes headed your way!

Retrieval week of Mar 7 and transfer week of Mar 14. It is so hard to wrap my head around. We made the decision to use a donor back in June but two potential donors fell through (rejected by clinic for medical reasons) before we found one that would work. Praying for her specifically right now that an ovary doesn't just explode or something. Wonder what the odds are that this will even work.....................I think they said 63%................
