And still waiting...

It's been awhile since I posted because right now I am in that seemingly endless 2 week wait. The good news is that I was able to shave 2 days off the date for the beta. I was originally scheduled for 7/19 but since I had a day 5 transfer (on 7/5) they moved it to 7/17, this Friday. Yay!

Other than that, really nothing to report. I went in today for my day 8 bloodwork to check estrogen and progesterone (they put me on estrogen after the day 4 bloodwork, which they told me is normal). I told the nurse I was feeling a little crampy today and she said that is normal in both outcomes, pregnant or not! Well, that doesn't help! And so far I've fought the urge to POAS. Should I? Should I?

Finally, yesterday was my birthday. Yay me! Though not so great because it was the big 3-0! Yikes! But my wonderful hubby surprised me with an overnight at the unbelievably fancy, posh, lavish 5-star Inn at Little Washington (, not too far from where we live in D.C. All I can say is - WOW - we felt like royalty.

So there you go...hopefully this will sustain your curiosity until the big day on Friday when I pray, pray, hope and pray I have good news to report.


  1. OMG! The Inn at Little Washington!!! I have always wanted to eat there. Wow, very well done, hubby!

    To pee or not to pee, that is the ultimate question. I've done both. I'd say POAS the morning you go to get your beta. That way you are somewhat prepared for when the nurse calls you later that day. And make sure you get the POAS stick that is the most sensitive, I think it is the First Response Early Detection, or something like that.

    I'll be eager to hear Friday! Keeping my fingers crossed for you!

  2. Happy Birthday!

    I am so jealous (well, not about the birthday bit as they seem to be rolling towards me faster and faster) of your stay at The Inn. That's on my top-ten list of things I want to do in the state (Commonwealth?).

    No advice on the POAS...fingers crossed for good news Friday.

  3. Happy 30th birthday! What a wonderful gift your husband gave you. :-D

    Thinking of you and I hope this week of waiting passes quickly for you

  4. Happy Birthday and I hope the week passes quickly!

  5. I can not wait to see if you get your BFP. I am constantly checking to see if you have tested yet. Good luck!

  6. Great gift! Hopefully it's the last getaway you'll have in a long time :) I so wish you tested, youre killin me.

  7. I'm glad you had such a cool birthday! Happy 30th!

    Praying for good news on Friday.

  8. Happy Belated Birthday! I hope you get great news on Friday!

  9. I hope today is the day!
