Blood test on Thursday - obsessing

Hello fellow TTCers,
I am new to the group - I have been observing for a couple of days, but today is my first post. I have never reached out online like this before - but my nerves have the best of me; and I don't know any other women that have gone through this....
A little about me: My name is B, I am 34, DH 33, TTC for seven years. My (former) GYN had me on Clyomid for years. Finally, after every single women of child bearing age I knew had at least one baby while we were still trying, I realized that perhaps there were health issues. Since visiting the specialist, I underwent an HSG, a lap, 6 IUIs, with no success, and started the IVF process at the beginning of the year. With the stimulation drugs I got Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syn and was too sick for the BT. I FINALLY had the transfer last Tuesday (2 blasts in the oven, one was lost during the thaw and two left in the freezer) - so now I wait for the blood test on Thursday.
After trying for seven years, and finally getting this far, it is really hard not to simply obsess on whether or not I am pregnant. To make matters worst, the PIO injections have really done a number on me this time. On both sides the oil is applying pressure to nerves, so I don't have full range of my legs and I am in pain. With my physical activities restricted, it is difficult to distract myself.
Does anyone else have an upcoming blood test?
