Well we are somewhat back to normal as far as Irene is concerned. The basement ended up with about only 2 inches of water that was just ground water coming up. We were very lucky in that respect. Others were knee deep and bailing out. We are under sewer restrictions since the water treatment facility has failed. So we are conservatively flushing and showering elsewhere. The last thing we need is to have the sewer back up in to the house.

On the FET front, I have been testing each morning to a BFN each time. I have had no real symptoms. Only this morning did I think that two things from yesterday might have been symptoms. First, I was extremely irritable yesterday. I lost it on DH when something with his sister came up (can't stand her!) and while normally a very calm person, I was literally screaming at him and throwing the F word around like it was my job! (speaking of that, I have not been able to get to work for the past two days because the power is still out there!) Anyway, then around 6pm last night a wave of fatigue came over me, like I had the flu without the flu. I thought I was going to fall asleep sitting up!! I was like a wet dishrag! So maybe those are symptoms and maybe it's just side effects or stress. Beta is Friday and as much as I try not to think about it, it's always there!!

Glad that Irene left you relatively unscathed... altho having to deal with any amount of flooding just sucks.

As for testing... what kind of tests are you using? Internet or dollar store cheapies? Name brands?

If your beta is Friday, it's still really early to get a good response. With my first pregnancy, I didn't get a bfp until I was 15dpo, and my usual lp is only 12 days.

Hang in there!
