AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I was wondering if you went for the beta anyway. I had a feeling... I'm glad you passed hurdles 1 & 2. On to 3-999. Well, we're hanging on for the ride.

Wow! I am positive this, out first IUI cycle, is negative too. So you give me hope! Crossing fingers and toes that this is a keeper for you.

Congratulations Tertia! I´ll drink a glass of wine for you tonight :-)

I´m so happy for you, wonderful, wonderful news!!!

Holy shit! I hope there is a wee bit of happiness mixed in with the paranoia and caution...then again, the negative thinking *does* seem to be working for you.

I'm gonna be the first to say it: I KNEW IT I KNEW IT I KNEW IT!

Of course, I've never met your acupuncturist, but I just kept thinking she was wrong on this one.

You know the old saying: The only way to eat an elephant is to take one bite at a time - and don't start at the tail.

Don't start at the ass! It has to be the ass! It's so much more picturesque.

T., you know how happy I am for you. I love it that you were wrong. Now I can be happy for you and mock you relentlessly. Everybody wins.

Jumping in out of obscurity here to say I am very happy for you! I have been following along with your journal for a while now, wishing all the best for you on your quest. May everything go perfectly according to plan from here on out!

I know.........oh, don't I know, the emotions that come with the positive. But if you're going to travel the road, you must have that positive to get out of the gate. I will be anxiously awaiting, and hoping....
And really, the wine? I totally marinated my daughter...got fall-down drunk at a wedding before I knew I was pregnant. They actually come out a bit more relaxed that way, I think.

First of all congrats and I hope this is the one for you.

Second - I can't believe that acupuncturist and the arrogance of thinking she is never wrong. The amount of stress she put you under for nothing and even risked you getting a negative cos of all of the stress when this pregnancy is so precious to you. Sorry but that is outrageous.

Best wishes for the pregnancy


OMG! I am wishing you the very best! :-) What great news!

I had a feeling you were righting this cycle off too soon.


Many congrats from my neck of the woods (Rochester, NY), but originally from your neck of the woods (Cape Town, PE and Jo'burg). I've been following your journal, have cried and laughed with you...and couldn't be happier with your positive news! Take care of yourself, be nice to yourself and cherish every moment! I'll be checking in again!

I have been looking for this news all weekend. I'm so happy for you, nervous and scared for you as well, but mostly happy. I'm so glad your acupuncturist was wrong! Now I have to run and tell my whole family Tertia is pregnant!

I have been following you story and just waiting for you to post your cycle was positive. My last IVF I also drank wine at the end, had sex, called the adoption agency and sent in our forms because I absolutely KNEW it was negative. The wine and the sex didn't hurt my embies and we are still cruising along. Congrats and best wishes!!!!

Oh _wow_. Yes, it's a long road... but you're a couple of steps futher along, and that's great.

Woohoo! Good news!

I realize there's still a long way to go...but it's a start.

Hooray for good news! I'm so happy for you, Terti.

What Julia said: IknewitIknewitIknewit. Kept phoning Bee this weekend and asking whether she'd heard from you. I love that that your ac. was wrong. Praying that tomorrow's news is good and that the next 996 steps go by without a hitch.

Me; DH! DH! DH! Guess what!!! Tertia has a +!

DH: Which one is Tertia again?

Me: SA, fresh cycle. NO folicles back when I was about to be canceled.......

DH: Seriously???

Me: (Shit eating grin on my face) (I know horrible expression, but can't think of another) Yep, seriously. Effing cool.

DH: 997 steps left to the real prize, eh?

Me: Too true, but f@ck, you can't take those 997 if the first two don't happen....


Tertia, here's hoping for you, and your famous pal Julie. You two will be my inspiration as I start the cr@p over again next week.....

Me: (thinking to myself... Wine & Smokes & Sex..... Hmmm...)

Oh Tertia! This is wonderful news! YAY!! Crying happy tears for you.

Cheering you on from Canada! one day at a time from here on in.


AAAAAAAAAH!! This is awesome. I can't wait to hear the results of your beta yesterday.


Well, yay. And my best wishes for a continued yay.

I am SO GLAD he was right and she was wrong!!! Crossing everything for doubling vibes and goodness all around!!!

Oh yay. I am so glad your accupuncturist was wrong, but I am a bit peeved that she made you so upset that now you have the smoking and drinking and sex to worry about.

Teary congratulations!


Wonderful news!

Outragiously great news! Lots of luck.

Woohoo!! Congrats!

I'm a lurker but I had to join in here on congratulations! I hope you called the acupuncturist and told her she was wrong. I'm so glad your Dr. was right!

Congratulations, Tertia!!
So glad your acupuncturist was wrong. :)
Hope you keep seeing better and better numbers.
Best wishes,

Yahoooooo!!!!! I'll continue to keep everyting I can crossed!!
