I haven’t blogged much the past few days because not much has happened. It’s kind of a let down. All these weeks and months preparing for the moment of embryo transfer and now… we wait. You know that feeling when finals are finally over but you find yourself feeling like you can’t relax because you keep thinking you’re supposed to be doing something? That you must be forgetting something? That’s how I feel.
I did almost forget to do the 10 IU Lupron booster shot the day after transfer but remembered when it was time for the progesterone shot.
It was nearly impossible for me to sit around and do nothing for 2 days after the transfer. I kept forgetting that I was supposed to be relaxing and not doing anything that might make my uterus contract. I have no idea what makes a uterus contract, but resting should help prevent it.
I’ve POAS every day just like I wanted to. All 3 tests have been negative, as expected.
I don’t think I’ve felt any twinges or anything that might count as implantation pains. For the first day or 2 I had some pain that I think was in my bladder. That’s gone away now. Even if I did feel anything I wouldn’t trust it because the progesterone side effects include cramping!
So… we wait.
We went to dinner at a friend’s house tonight. Even though her own sister struggled for years with severe infertility she doesn’t get it that it’s rude to ask people all the time about when they’re going to have kids. Before dinner she bugged us about it and the other couple that came to dinner. And then during dinner, out of the blue, “I’m ten weeks pregnant with baby 3. We weren’t even trying.” Blah blah blah.
I hope these babies stick. I’ll feel like such a failure if they don’t.
