Beta: four days. Daily thirty-second increments in whcih I do not think of pregnancy: four. In-laws arrive: four hours. Duration: three weeks. Bedrooms: two. Bathrooms: one. Likelihood of having privacy for probable sobbing, self-flagellation and hair-tearing on Wednesday afternoon: zero.

Pity me, won't you?

(For anyone who may be interested: the life-saving elixir ultra-thin progesterone suspension is something called "ethyl oleate oil." It comes with anorexic 25G needles instead of the corpulent 22Gs.If your haunches are the rebellious type and you have a prescription to fill, I highly recommend contacting The Medicine Shoppe for a hit of the good stuff. Drop me an email and I'll send you the phone number. They ship overnight.)

Okay, admit it: You just bought stock in the Medicine Shoppe.

Hope the next four days pass very quickly and that you get a positive Beta.

Take care.

OMG, talk about bad timing. But, on the other hand, does mentioning purgatory signal an impending positive beta? Because Suz did it and look what happened to her.

Wishing you the best.

Hope you'll be doing the hokey pokey in just a few more days.

Best of luck with your beta! Inlaws coming for 3 weeks?!! You must be a saint!

Oh, I so feel for ya. My IL's are coming into town two days before my beta should I make it to transfer this cycle. Definitely not the best situation ever. Here's hoping there's no need for sobbing, self-flagellation, or hair-tearing come Wednesday.

I think internal spring is right...impending purgatory (ie the in-laws) = a positive beta. At least, I hope and pray that it does. Nothing could be better than to read about your wonderful beta result!

Bad timing in the extreme. Not only are you in purgatory, but you have company while you're there. I'm crossing everything that I have that your stay is a short one.

As Anne said, you must be a saint. In-laws and beta at the same time, good god could that timing have been any worse.

No. Not the in-laws. How horrific. Extra finger crossings and face paint for good beta results (maybe they are contagious) this time.

Little known secret about living on the coasts. The worst part is the one-bathroom apartment. (And mine is in my bedroom!) I feel for you. Glad at least you're feeling much better.

Thinking of you and hoping you survive the inlaws. Got loads crossed here as well.
