Bummed beyond belief

I'll just make this short.  Our beta was negative.  I knew it would be.  I never got a positive home test at all.  I didn't feel pregnant.  I didn't get the sore boobs and nausea I was hoping to get.  Yeah, hoping to get those....only someone who loves being prego would say that.  I'm so sad, upset, mad....I know I did all I could, but I still feel like crap.  I'm mostly heartbroken for G&M.  I wanted this for them so badly.  G&M have no more embryos.  This was their final chance and it didn't work out.  :( Please pray for peace for them.

Smooth Transfer

The hubs and I returned home last night from our transfer in PA.  We left Sunday afternoon.  Flights were on time both directions.  They were even early both legs on the way home.

It was great to see G&M again.  They seemed quite nervous...who could blame them?  The clinic had thawed the 3 embryos on Thursday.  All 3 survived the thaw.  Yay!!  Then it was on to the dividing and growing part.  Two stalled at the cellular stage and wouldn't progress.  The clinic thawed their very last blast that was refrozen from last time.  It was progressing nicely, along with the remaining one that was thawed first.  We had decided at the beginning of this cycle to put 2 back if 2 survived.  That is exactly what we did.

The ambiance was completely different this time.  I find it hard to describe.  Everyone seemed so calm, almost surreal.  I don't know.  We all said we feel good about it this time.  It definitely felt different.  I'm praying one sticks!!  This is their final chance at having a sibling for D.  They say they know they are truly blessed to have D, of course, but would LOVE to have another one.  I'm hoping I can help them with that!  :)

I should know by Sunday or Monday via home tests if one of these little guys stuck.  Please send sticky thoughts, prayers, happy thoughts, whatever you do.  ALL of us would greatly appreciate it.  Please also send prayers for G&M.  I can't imagine all the emotions going on in their hearts right now.  They need comfort to ease the stress of all this, as it can't be easy for them.  Thank you all for your support again!
