Countdown to FET#1

Well, I am officially trying to get this blog going!
I am on the countdown to starting my FET#1 when AF arrives in @7-9 days. I feel excited and optimistic about the cycle due to the following: 1) Much less medication than the fresh IVF#1.2) I know what to expect this time.3) Easier to coordinate with my and DHs work schedule.4) IVF#1 was ideal and it worked for us - unfortunately ending up in tube, rupturing and loosing baby and tube.5) Spring time is hopeful - all things are awakening from a dormant winter and ready to show signs of life - which I hope is a good premonition!
We have snow-twins so we are praying that both survive the thaw and show signs of life, prior to transfer. RE feels good about FET and our chances - wow I just wish I had more to give us better chances at thaw, but all in all they are perfect grade blastocysts so we just have to have faith and trust God, my body, and the clinic.
My only negative is I will have to once again give up (or alter) my Starbucks addiction (just one caffeine a day! If that is the worst I have to give up for this (these) baby (babies) then I will take it

Good luck with your cycle. Looks like our natural FET's will overlap! Too bad you can't make it to our meet up Saturday. Now I'll be sitting in the waiting room every time I'm at THE clinic wondering if I'm sitting next to you!

Thanks for your kind words today. I appreciate it.

Hi Maryanne. I like your positive view based on the spring season, that's a nice thought that I'll keep in mind myself. =) I had a mishap right before xmas myself, it's hard. Happy Day!

Welcome to Blogland. Good luck - I'm a ColoBlogger that did IVF and ended up with twins. I'm hoping that I can share twin pregnancy and baby stories with you soon. :-) Stay positive, it's a great motivator!
