The waiting is the hardest part...

Thanks, all of you who have been checking in and asking for updates. So far, nothing to report. I told the acupuncturist, "I don't feel pregnant," and he said, "Have you ever been pregnant?" "No." "Then how do you know how it feels?" Hm. As HK says, he ran circles around me logically. And today my haircut lady said she went months without knowing she was pregnant (you can see, I talk about this with LOTS of people). So, I am trying to believe that I am pregnant until proven otherwise. But it sure would be nice to feel something.

Thursday the 6th was my last day at work, until I start my new job April 1st. Mostly since then I have been indulging myself with resting, working on my quilt, acupuncture, haircut, foot massage, shopping, eating out, seeing friends, etc.

On Sunday I had a belated birthday brunch with girlfriends whom I have known since high school, at the Grand Lux Cafe. Yum. It was good to catch up and focus on things besides fertility for a few hours. Thanks again, y'all! On Monday, I lunched with Kaaron. That's the first time I met someone from the internet in real life, and I really enjoyed spending that time with her. We go to the same clinic and live not far from each other. She just found out she is pregnant after IVF and is going in for her first ultrasound tomorrow - congratulations, Kaaron!

I am not sleeping that well, so Tuesday I rested a lot, in the gorgeous weather, but yesterday I shopped with my Mom and had dinner with her and Dad. Today I am trying to transition from a "vacation" mindset to a more productive one, since my sister and her family arrive Wednesday for a long stay. Must get our taxes done before that! Poor HK has been working a lot, so I am hoping to spend most of the weekend with him. Then comes Monday...

Acu is right; you don't know how it feels to be pg. Truth be told, I don't feel incredibly different. I have only recently started to feel just a touch more tired. And of course, that is post-beta.

Glad you are enjoying your break between jobs! I found it very easy to let tasks just slip right by me for something more entertaining.

I'm glad you're enjoying your break. Thanks for answering my questions so thoroughly! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you. I'll update my page shortly, but our cycle almost got cancelled over the last few days because I developed a couple lead follicles and the others were lagging so far behind. But I made the criteria and we've decided to go ahead with the retrieval for Monday but they are not expecting to have too many eggs. I'm just happy to have any chance at all at this point. I had given up hope of any retrieval at all! So now I'm trying happy thoughts...happy thoughts! Easier said than done.

Sorry so long!
