One more day

One more day until we will know the outcome of this cycle.
We are really excited for tomorrow to come. It's been a strange thing this cycle to not be able to test ahead. On one hand, it has made the process more enjoyable, because we can just entertain the possibility that there is still life inside of me while realizing the impossibility of having an answer yet. On the other hand, not being able to test is sheer torture. Will and I are trying to stay in the moment, but it is very, very difficult. Honestly, whatever the outcome, we are more than ready to know. We remain cautiously hopeful, but really, we have no idea what we will find out tomorrow.
On other fronts, out of sheer necessity, I have managed to complete a final draft of my entire dissertation - all 170 pages of it. As of yesterday, the copies were delivered to my school and turned in to my committee. I will meet with them in a couple of weeks for the next-to-last step to get their feedback. After I make those changes, I will be - finally - headed for the oral defense. I cannot wait to be done. This degree process has been so much more intensive and grueling than I could have ever envisioned. I have learned much, but I really look forward to finishing. It has been years of seemingly never-ending work.
So. Tomorrow. Hopefully it will be here before we know it. And maybe, just maybe, we will have a good outcome. It doesn't seem likely given out track record so far, but we are so wanting a positive outcome. Please, Universe, we've paid our dues!!
We promise to post once we have news. As always, thank you so much for your thoughts, your comments, your support.

I deleted my other comment because it had some serious type-os in it that made me look fairly slow...

Anyway...I am sending loads and loads of good luck wishes your way! Try not to judge the possibility for a positive outcome based on past cycles--view this one entirely on its own merit. You transferred some good looking embies! Everything is crossed for you!

nepsi said...

Congratulations on the final draft. I can't even explain how good it feels once the oral is over... then again it is a bit anticlimatic. I felt so relieved but overall the difference in my physical feeling was like someone had been hitting me in the head with a hammer for 5 years and one day it just stopped :)

You will be in my thoughts tomorrow. I can't imagine not being able to cheat! I would die!!! I am rooting for you though for some good news finally.

Kahla said...

Praying for nothing but good news tomorrow!!!

Gibson Twins said...

Will the hcg that you're taking (that is keeping you from accurately testing with a pee stick) affect the beta? Sorry if that is a stupid question, just wondering how that all works.

Praying for you and Will to get awesome news tomorrow.

Just Caz said...

I am keeping you in my thoughts.
I hope this is it.

Mo and Will said...

Gibson,

Good question. My RE says we should "have a good idea" by the beta number. I think by tomorrow most of the booster should be out of my system and if pregnant, there should be a decently high number. Then we check to see if it keeps going up, doubling, just be sure...that's my understanding at least.
