Still in the game…

And the rules of the game have changed. We were discussing today that even with a +HPT (yes, it was positive) and a positive first beta (yes, it was positive too), we don’t feel confident that this worked. We don’t feel like we have any news to tell people. We feel like we are waiting for the other shoe to drop. As long as we are still in limbo, I can share things with you all, and I will share in more detail over the next few days. But so far, so good. We are most definitely still in the game.

For those visiting from ICLW, welcome. Briefly, I’m a 36 years old physician married to my wonderful husband, A, and living with our crazy dog in the lovely Pacific Northwest. We were married in the summer of 2008 and started trying to conceive the summer of 2009. We were diagnosed with unexplained infertility, and after 4 failed IUIs we embarked on round one of IVF in the summer of 2011, which was the start of this blog. You can read all about IVF #1 here. And FET #1 here. And we are currently waiting to find out the outcome of FET #2, which you can read about here.

Thanks for stopping by!

    First off, sending you a BIG hug.

    I know this feeling. You’ve been burned one too many times. So don’t think about this either. Don’t analyze symptoms (or the lack of symptoms) and instead focus on the fact that 1) it’s a beautiful day and 2) you are doing everything humanly possible to carry this pregnancy for the next 9 months.

    I have been and will continue to send positive thoughts your way and hold onto hope for a doubling of the HCG.

    First, congratulations! A positive beta is the first step, and we can only take things one step at a time. Second, I can only imagine how difficult it would be to let go of all the worries we carry with us though this journey. We all do our best though, and that is important. I hope this is the first of many steps over the next 9 months that lead you to a happy, healthy baby!

    So many doubling beta vibes being sent your way!!

    I am doing lots of positive thinking for you. I even had a dream on Saturday night about what baby gifts I’m getting for you, so my subconscious agrees that this worked! 🙂 Feel free to rely on your friends for whatever you need! And good luck!

    Agreed, this is scary territory. But good scary. And just maybe, this time there is no other shoe. Thinking a whole lot about you guys and sending you some serious good vibes.
