  • You are right! I have had a positive outlook all along, but as it gets closer, I feel myself going into protection mode...so I'm not setting myself up for a big disapointment...you know as well as I do how much this infertility stuff can wear on you...I go back and forth between thinking "of course it will happen" to "why would it ever happen-it hasn't so far?" Does the anxiety lesson once you're pregnant???

  • I don't have much anxiety now. A friend told me that I am an awesome woman and the perfect vessel to grow this baby in and that this baby is the luckiest baby ever to get to grow itself inside of me. I know it sounds kind of hokey but that's what I tried to think up at transfer time. That and I kept telling that embie to stick in there this time. And it worked!! Look, it's either going to work or not but you're doing all you can and that's what's going to count in the end. Your chances sound great though, especially since you're going to blast. You'll do great!! Chin up
     
    Leslie PS I might not have as much anxiety but boy oh boy do those u/s pictures keep me a smiling!!

  • Unfortunately the anxiety hasn't lessened for me
     
    I was actually just thinking the other day that I'm not going to enjoy being pg because I am so terrified all the time that something might happen to these babies....it's not healthy to think like that, but after so much, I can't help it. My dh was adamant against adoption too, but about halfway through our second cycle we started to seriously talk about it (since this was our last try at ivf). He was on board for adoption and we even sent away for information...and now look at me
     
    My dh informed me yesterday that if we had 2 girls, we were trying again ( LOL )! That's what he thinks.

  • I think you're having two boys. Missy, look at all you've been through. These babies are YOURS!! You just knock off those bad thoughts or I'll come out to Maine and make you a cake. Take a deep breath and smile. YOU ARE PG!!!! Leslie
