Can I have a little whine with that?

This is just a big old whine. I won't feel bad if you go away now and don't read any further. You won't find anything positive here. I feel totally and utterly paralyzed, unable to do anything except obsessively read blogs and sit on my arse until I know the outcome of this cycle. I hate waiting for anything. I know I'm not the first and I sure as hell won't be the last but JESUS, please make this next week go fast. My blood results last Friday were good. E2 was 1393 and P4 was 85. Do they mean anything? I really don't know at this stage but my obsession with numbers has not lessened. Tomorrow I go in for more blood draws. I'm really scared because at this stage in my last cycle, my levels dropped drastically. I don't remember what my E2 was but my P4 was only 7. The P4 won't drop this time because of PIO and I know my E2 will drop, but I'm not even sure what's acceptable. I POAS today. Negative. That was just to be sure the HCG had left my system from the trigger. I have 3 tests left. Monday(my birthday), Wednesday and Friday. Beta is on Saturday.

Sweety... being paralyzed by the two week wait is just par for the course. This is not meant to minimize what you are feeling... just reminding you that it's completely to be expected. I have absolutely nothing to add to your musings regarding the E2 and P4 levels... I just wish I could make the time pass more quickly for you.

In my two week wait, I facetiously asked for fast-forward dust from my readers...

Your numbers sounded good.

It's good the trigger is gone....

Good luck at your next blood draw. Hope your time goes by QUICKLY!

I hate the two week wait. It is so, so tough. I'm sorry, and thinking of you. And I'm not sure if what you just did technically qualifies as a whine ... but if it did, you would be completely within your rights. Hope it speeds by.

Have you thought about changing this around? Instead of the 2ww being a killer, try to think of it, as the time when you "might" be pregnant. I always say that once my period is here I know for sure I am not pregnant, but after O, then I might just be pregnant and I can imagine just a little what that is like.

Oh how I hope that the numbers don't drop on you hun. That beta will be here before you know it. I am crossing my fingers so hard that the next POAS is positive, very positive.

thinking of you.

Happy birthday! The 2ww is so hard- do you have any good books to read or any movies to catch up on? They can be good distractions.

Happy birthday!!

I know how hard the 2WW is. It truly is the worst part of the cycle. Sending sticky vibes to your embies.

Happy birthday, PL! Breithla Sona!

The wait is too much, and I think you should just do whatever you want during the time. If you want to read blogs 24/7, then that is what you get to do!

It's impossible to focus on anything else when you're dealing with something so major, I know.

Happy Birthday, btw. Did you pee on the stick today? Is it still early for a second line?

Fingers crossed for you.
