The power of negative thinking


I can't even believe it. My lining increased from 5.6 to 8.1 in 2 days. I could see the improvement the second the ultrasound picture appeared. The doctor was thrilled. The nurse was thrilled. I was just...shocked. There appeared to be a spot of fluid in my uterus, but the doctor wasn't concerned and said it wasn't near where the embryo would be transferred to.

Now we're back on the rollercoaster with the upcoming transfer, the freeze report, and of course the beta. You'll have to pardon me for not being overly excited. The negativity seems to work in my favor. I'm debating whether to cancel the pity party I'd planned for tonight (margaritas and mexican food). Maybe just skip the margaritas.

I'm waiting for my transfer time on Sunday. Mr GB isn't going because we are very superstitious--he didn't go last time and I got pregnant, so he won't be going again this time. (And frankly that's fine with me--we've done this so many times and the last time he did go he brought a Starbucks coffee and a muffin and got muffin crumbs all over himself in the very room where the embryos are transferred. So much for a clean room.)

I'll post updates as I have them.

Yours gloomily,

Golden Bud

Awesome! I really hope you get a good report on Sunday and most (if not all) of your embryos have turned into high-quality blastocysts. Good luck this weekend!
