Good morning ladies!
Well, sorry to disappoint so many of you girlies, but I did POAS, and I did get a BFN. And I still have my PMA.
I woke up in the middle of the night because DS was coughing too much and had a stuffy nose, he couldn't fall asleep again. And right when I got up I felt that warm liquid soak my panties and drip along my thighs and in the dark I thought it was blood. Turns out it was...??? No idea, it was white, maybe from the progesterone inserts, I had never had something like that before. So you bet I POAS, in order to have at least a partial answer and find a bit of peace of mind. Now I know it's not twins, because multiples would have shown on a sensitive test like First response. But a singleton might not; it is indeed early, so my PMA is intact. And my peace of mind is back. Now I can wait until Thrusday or Friday morning to POAS again so DH can test with me, and then I'll go alone for the blood test on Friday afternoon.
I was tempted to feel sorry for myself a bit because I don't want to have a fresh cycle again, but I didn't even cry. At 3am I was rocking my son who was all curled up against me and I was thinking about how incredibly lucky I was to have him when some of you here have yet to meet your children. Plus, BFN or BFP, I have a new baby now, my catering service!
So it took away all thoughts of complaining about my fate. And I still won't believe that, among those 3 nice-looking embies, no one was able to hatch and grow. You bet there is still hope. When I went to bed yesterday evening, I felt a hungry-MS type of nausea. I am more hungry than usual. I can express milk from my breasts even if I have stopped breastfeeding a while ago. I still have a sensitive sense of smell. So...
Oh, and the washed out spotting did stop by the time I was home. Might be an AF forewarning, or it might be anything. No trace of pink or brown since then. We'll see what happens...
Okay, enough about selfish little me!
It's great that things are moving the way you want!
I'm happy for you! Here's a bucket of baby dust for you!
yes, cramping is normal, but you should definitely get up and walk around if you feel cramping in your legs. Strict bedrest puts you at serious risk of developing blood clots in your legs. The progesterone you're taking can cause cramps in your uterus, it's normal. That nasty thing will make you feel every single bit as you feel just before AF starts. It's a mind trick, don't fall into it!
I'm sorry to hear that you felt so low, but happy that you're doing IVF with a positive mind!
When will you test?
congrats on your plump little six-pack!
I wouldn't worry about the meds increase if I were you. I'd much prefer my doctors to tweak and adjust the protocol to my body's response than to prescribe the same doses blindly to every patient in the clinic. That increase just means your doc is following your body, so rejoice!
Any talk about when ER might be?
you are so sweet,thanks for checking on me so often! I'm so sorry, I was super busy in the evening and I didn't even have time to write an email. Sorry about that. I'll reply to your pm in a bit. You're an angel *HUGS*
Repeat after me, "It's not my fault, officer, it's the meds!!!!!" They do play with our mood and mind... I'm sorry that you had a bad day; if a kick in the butt is what it takes, than go ahead, but I,ll give you a big hug anyway! We all go through those times... Friday will be here before we know it! Hang in there sweetie!
hey sweetie! WOW no wonder you're sore my dear, 14 eggies is a BIG reaping! LOL so you're a good hen too!!!! Your pain seems quite intense to me, though, I've never heard of someone who could not even wear her knickers after ER... have you told the clinic about this? Maybe it's just that your ovaries bled a little bit more than standard after the procedure and it irritates your peritoneum. That really hurts, it's like a bar of fire on your lower back. Do try the yoga pose sweetie, plus a hot water bottle, plus Tylenol EVERY FOUR HOURS NO MATTER WHAT, and do something that captures your attention a lot, like watching a good movie or reading a captivating book. It will take your attention away from the pain. I wish I was there to feed you some ice cream... you can be sure we'd find a way to make it stay in!
How are you feeling today?
Hey dear! LOL you thread crasher, you know it's always so good to see you! How are the twins doing? Still behaving during the night? Thanks for your encouragements sweetie, I feel all warm and fuzzy inside now!
Okay ladies, time to get some work done! Love,
