Hi Jess and welcome. I agree with Missy, just try to relax and take one day at a time. I hope your first IVF will be your last. Best of luck.

Hi Jess. Most important is relax and don't stress. I freaked out when I saw the video with all the meds and time tables etc.. I started crying and panicking because I thought I'd never be able to keep track of all the stuff and I was so far away from my clinic (I live in Alaska, clinic is in Minneapolis). Anyway, once it started all coming together it TOTALLY came together. The nurses are great, they do not let you miss a beat. I even went to Miami and they tracked me down there and called in a prescription to my hotel! Try and trust those you've chosen to take care of you. It might seem like they aren't paying enough attention to you in the beginning but don't worry, they've got it under control. Believe me. I'm almost 10 weeks and it only took two trys!!! Best of luck, Leslie

Hi, I am also new and everyone seems to be from the US, I am actually in Turkey at the moment and I am having my 2nd IVF treatment here, it is very different from the UK, but after reading everyones posts, they seem to do it the American way here. I will have my ER on Saturday morning and the transfer will take place on Tuesday, I am really nervous for the 12 day wait, it was the worst 12 days of my life last time, but I am very positive. On my way to the hospital yesterday a stork flew over the top of the car and to its nest, could this be a sign??

Zena, when I had my two week wait a momma moose gave birth to twin fouls in my back yard and a momma bear and baby walked by my window in the front. On my way to get my beta test I saw a pod of beluga whales. I got a positive so ..... really believe in animal signs.
 
PS I live in Alaska but these sighting are rare. Leslie

you are so right about signs like that. sometimes we just need those things to get us through another day. i try to keep my eyes and heart open to signs all the time.
