Three full days left until we find out if our IVF cycle helped create our little one.
Our little one that I have dreamt about for as long as I can remember…
According to this website, I am at the stage past transfer (9dp3dt) that implantation is now complete and fetal development continues and HCG continues to be secreted.
Wow. This makes me feel all warm and bubbly inside.
And even though technically I could take a home pregnancy test; J and I have agreed to not test before we hear the results of our second beta.
Yes, I wrote that correctly my second beta.
My clinic is extremely conservative and has their patients take two betas within 48 hours of each other and only after the second beta is complete do they call with the results.
Although this seems like slow torture, I can understand this strategy as it’s the doubling time that truly counts, but oh my goodness my will power is being tested for sure.
At the moment I feel rather normal and am contributing a few of my “symptoms”
(increased appetite, increased tiredness, irritability, sensitive body, and tender breasts)
to the lovely progesterone in oil that I am taking every night.
Oh and I had an odd pinching pain in my lower middle abdomen yesterday afternoon that lasted about ten seconds and literally took my breath away -progesterone right?
Even Dr. S told me right after my transfer not to expect any symptoms during the wait as it’s simply too early yet.
Oh that progesterone –why do you give the same symptoms of PMS and Pregnancy and at the very same time?
So that is my ‘nearing the end of this 1 ½ week wait after transfer update’ and my next post will either be really amazing and joyful and full of blessings or the “other” which I won’t even let my mind wander to at the moment.
Continuing to stay in the present, feeling this working, and awaiting for confirmation of our miracle.
