No whammies

First, thank you for all of your words of encouragement and good wishes. I am so unbelievably blessed to have all of you ladies in my life.

This morning I feel like I’m in Las V.egas. All day I’ve been thinking “Big number, big number, no whammies, big number!” My fear is that just like in LV, the house always wins. Doesn’t matter what game you’re playing; injectibles, C.lomid, IUI, IVF…the IF Hotel and Casino has the edge.

I know this is a horribly negative way to think and I really do want to be excited and enjoy this moment but the truth is, I’m scared out of my mind. I go back and forth on if I’m having any symptoms. Definitely some cramping over the weekend, but for the most part that’s gone. Other than that, most of the other symptoms can be blamed on the Pr.ometrium.

So nothing to do but wait…and keep thinking “big number, big number”!

    Big number, big number, big number!I don’t think you are being negative. You are just trying to protect your heart. Any of us would do the same (and some are). I will be thinking of you today!

    As I write, I’m chanting “big number, big number, big number.” Don’t worry about being slightly negative, it’s okay to feel that way. I know that I will feel the same way when I’m pg.

    Don’t worry for the lack of symptoms, not all experience them. I am half way through and didn’t have ANY symptoms at all, N-O-T-H-I-N-G, other than no AF!I felt and keep feeling perfectly normal since the beginning an I am really enjoying the symptom free ride!… So don’t give up hope just yet and keep thinking BIG, BIG, BIG number!!!!
