I am. I kind of wish she hadn't said, "Three, maybe four... oh, wait... two," instead of just, "Dunno, ring back... two," but never mind. You're right, of course - better one good embryo than any number of going-nowhere ones, and it's reasonable to expect a better chance of thawing this time around. Really there's a limit to how worked-up one should get about these interim (ie meaningless) results. Mainly I was just feeling grumpy. (Do you think that's a pregnancy sign?)

Thankyou for all your comments, and to those who refrained from slapping me even though I left an open invitation. I just hope I haven't worn you out - there's that whole second week of the wait to come.

Also thanks to those who said "etsy" in reply to my other post. It was absolutely etsy I was trying to think of. Cheers for that.

The 2ww is hard enough without all this other stuff. You go on and let your feelings out.
Sometimes I think we are the most resilient and at the same time the most fragile people on this planet...
Wishing you a very speedy 2nd week with a much overdue sutprise at the end of it.

Oh never you mind, I was so close to giving you a slapping but I refrained, I am holding out for the second week.

It is expected to get worked up it will come in waves, one minute everything is ok the next minute you freak out about everything ! Anyway you can always just blame the drugs.

Yes, yes, grumpy = pregnancy for sure ;)

I am glad you are ok.

Venting feelings is all about what your blog is for. We're here just to remind you that things can still work out, not to berate you for feeling a certain way.

Good luck keeping sane during this wait! Post all you want and we'll do our part to keep you there!

Heather said...

Don't be hard on yourself.

Vent away, my dear! One can't have too many outlets.

Shall I slap you now? I guess I missed the invitation. I'll be gentle!

Yes, a gentle slap. What of it?

Sure, let's say grumpy is a pregnancy sign! Why not? :)

Fingers are crossed for you Bea.
take care

Larisa said...

Fingers crossed - I always hated getting the freeze report - it always somehow was disappointing. Hoping you don't need them right now.

The 2ww is torture enough without extra stuff added to it. I am thinking about you Bea and sending good thoughts your way.

Imogen and David said...

glad you're doing well.
i honestly didn't realize how much additional stress and worry comes with IVF.

Sarah said...

there would be something wrong with you if you didn't have those moments.

megan said...

i haven't read anything 'round here that warrants a slap. i hope the wait until your beta goes quickly.

Does the question about the word etsy mean that you are starting at etsy? Do tell, Ms. Mysterious Bea.

These small pieces of information do take on tremendous emotional importance when you're waiting for THE piece of information. The one that tells you that all is well. And I think the reaction is normal.
