Today no tears

No indeed, because we did make it to transfer. Our last two embryos
survived thaw and were both transferred today. Hurray for

The hoped for, but unexpected, good news left me feeling a bit giddy.
I breezed into the clinic like a tourist going back to a much-visited
destination. Look, there's my favorite ice-cream parlor... I even
chatted with the woman sharing my room, something I usually don't do
(fortunately she was ok with that).

Apart from the odd feeling of nostalgia (because the end - with my/our
genes - is near?), I don't feel much hope for this FET. Sure, hope
will creep in as the testing day draws near, but in a way it seems too
laughable a notion to even entertain. Good thing I have you to hope
for me (optionally with clown's nose on).

First beta in a mere 9 days (actually to check I'm taking my meds
properly). Unfortunately I'm out of high-end HPTs, I only have one
single cheaper brand left. I'm reluctant to waste money on new ones.

It is the best possible outcome...that both embryos thawed and were transferred.

Hope you can stay zen during the 2WW.

Clown nose is on! I always have hope for you, my friend, and am thrilled to hear that both (BOTH!) embryos made it this far.

Transfer is good.

Fingers crossed.

I might be a broken record, so forgive me if I repeat myself. My first RE after my first failed cycle tried to talk DE. I went for a second opinion and brought Toddlerina home.

It is all timing and stuff we just dont understand.

I am so very happy to see you make it to transfer. What magnificent news!

I will be thinking of you all every single day.

Lut, I'll join the clown brigade for you too! Hoping for good things!

I'm just here, echoing everyone else's thoughts. I will hope, wildly and with abandon so there.
