I am writing this in such a f@cking rage.

My fiance has been asking me all week if I think that I'm pregnant. We are in the dreaded two week wait after a "natural" frozen egg transfer. For those of you who have not done one, you basically live your life as normal with some tracking (blood tests and ultrasounds) leading up to ovulation. Then,...
