I "lied" and all is well for my FET tomorrow.

I love that I know my parents so well. I knew that when I told them I'd need a procedure to help me get pregnant again they'd take my statement for what it was. No questions. Just a little worry. But I assured them that it was a simple procedure and it would be better for me not to walk around when I get home and all day the following day. And also as predicted, my mom and dad were said they were so happy that they could be here to help when I have to be off my feet. I love them. And I'm so glad I didn't tell them the whole truth. They are just too scared to deal with me getting pregnant again. When my mom found my PNVs she told my husband that he should throw them away.

Well even though they are frightened I know that they'll be happy for me if the FET works. And of course we'll be thrilled as well. Getting pregnant again is the driving force that has kept me from going into despair over losing Lydia. I can't believe the day is actually here.... Deep Breath.

So the transfer is at 12pm PST. I go in for acupuncture at 11:15, and I guess I'll start drinking my "lots and lots" of water after the treatment. Or maybe I should start drinking it right before. Last time I forgot to drink the water before arriving at my clinic, but it was fine because my RE was doing a surgery and was late. But this time I hope she won't be late. So I better figure out when to start filling my bladder. Any thoughts ladies?

I don't have any suggestions for your bladder, but I will be thinking of you tomorrow. Sending you all the good vibes, lucky charms, fingers crossed, prayers I have! Let us know how it goes.

It only takes about thirty minutes to fill the bladder if you drink your water all at once so it really depend on how fast you drink your water. So if you are dehydrated at all the water will not go to your bladder but go elsewhere so make sure that you are well hydrated by drinking well the day before and then I would start drinking as I leave my accu appointment and then finish up when I check in for my FET. Best of luck!

Good luck today! We have severe MF and our FET resulted in our son. I did acupuncture pre and post transfer and it really seemed to help.

Also, my bladder is on the smaller side, but I found if I drank too much too fast I got nauseous. I normally drink 2 huge iced teas starting an hour and a half before. Water made me really sick, so I limited myself to unsweetened ice tea.....it made my bladder full, but not too the painful point

Hope that helps!

I am glad things worked out with your parents! I would just start drinking slowly this morning to make sure you are nice and hydrated and then drink 30 oz a half hour before you go.

Good luck!

T-1 hour until accupuncture. I hope you're downing water like crazy, girl. I'll be thinking good thoughts for you. You deserve this.

Good luck!!!! I wouldn't over do the water personally but that's just me. Sending good thoughts your way.

Oh, honey. I so get this. My mom is scared for me, too - she just doesn't "put it out there" as much as it seems yours does :) But, I mean, how could she not be? I'm worried for myself, for crying out loud! I can't imagine standing back and watching your child go through what we have (not that it was the exact same). . .

I'm so glad you were able to just gloss over things with them, and hope you have a wonderful, relaxing, and enjoyable visit. Everything is crossed that this will work.
