Wait, wait, and wait some more

I am only 2 days past my 3 day transfer, which would put me at around 5 days past ovulation. I won't test until I am 14 days past ovulation. Or 11 dp 3dt. That is quite a ways to go. My beta isn't until Friday the 29th, which is 14 dp 3dt. When my RE told me that, I wanted to ask him if he had a big plate of crazy for breakfast. Who waits that long? I mean, if I'm not pregnant, that just means I have to stick myself with a 1.5 inch needle in the upper hip for 3 extra days. I originally decided to not test before the beta, but knowing that it isn't until 4 or 5 days past when I would get a positive on a home pregnancy test, I have decided that I am going to.
I got sick last night : ( Like throwing up. I have no clue why. I was in a wedding, and had a tiny sip of champagne to toast the bride, but nothing but water at the reception. I just go so sick, and I am now totally freaked that I puked my embryos up. Not really - but it did make me worry. I know that it is fine, they are safe and sound still floating around in my uterus. Like little astronauts. Then they find where they want to stick in about 4 days, and they start to grow there! So I am pretty sure getting sick didn't disrupt their floating.

I'll be praying for you. I am so hopeful that you are pregnant!! You have done such an incredible job throughout this entire IVF process, and you should be VERY proud of yourself. I just took my first Lupron shot this morning for our IVF #1 and thought I was going to keel over. . . how on earth can a girl do SO many shots for weeks on end?!! This is so hard. I have been praying for you and will continue to do so; you will make a great Mom and you have done everything that you can do. Hang in there during this wait and take it easy. . . I pray that God blesses you both with a baby! I'll be looking forward to more updates:) Your blog is such an encouragement to me; thank you for all of your great posts!
