thinking of you this morning! i hope it went really well and you can have a relaxing day today
does your clinic have rules about bedrest, etc?
i know you are down about the # but i think its great! fertilization is an awesome thing, and you have 3 of them going for you right now! i would want them in on monday, too... the embryologist should be able to make the best decision based on how they are doing. as far as the + outcome, i had acupuncture before and after the transfer. the pineapple, well, i bought a bottle of bromelaine (sp?) but decided not to take it, as all i knew about it was subjective internet stuff, so, i didn't want to do anything to 'mess things up'. i think you have to eat the pineapple core, if you are going to do it, but i can also remember reading that bromelaine cause your uterus to contract, and that's why i opted out of the pineapple... i wanted my uterus calm for those embryos! i hope you get a great embryo report today or tomorrow.
i had all mind, intermittant 'symptoms'. mild being the key word. cramping, pulling, but not intense. queesiness, but nothing exceptional. sore boobies, but not that painfully sore. the only thing different that i noticed was i got some blue veins on my boobies that weren't there before. the whole 2ww, i basically assumed the high dosages of progesterone and estrogen were causing the syptoms. i didn't get any spotting or implantation bleeding. its hard but you just can't put any weight on the symptoms, imo. i really hope you get the news you want (we all want for you!) on your beta day!
having the online support is such a wonderful thing. especially because in real life this is so on the down-low. but i find myself comparing and being envious of everyone else's experiences... why is she throwing up and i am not? why does she get an u/s so soon? why are her beta's so freaking high and mine seem low in comparison... and on and on. i mean, i am not actually jealous, and the comparisons are silly and offer no use. everyone's body is different. this is my third pregnancy and so far it isnt that different than the first 2. i had never had a beta taken, so i have nothing to compare that to. so, you just have to find some kind of peace that what is happening inside YOU is fine and normal and perfect. its really hard though!
i am waiting not-so-patiently for my u/s on friday. i have days that i am totally obsessed, and days when i hardly think of it at all. the same 2ww symptoms come and go, and my boobs feel a little bigger, maybe. i am a whopping 6w2d today! its still so early! can you tell i am counting each day?!
well, i am still thinking of you all!
marly, how are you feeling today?
jempd, and you? are you feeling alright?
seedlings, how are you doing? i havn't forgotten about you! *hug*
vwchick, i wonder how you are... what you decided to do or are thinking about doing... i hope you are hanging in there...
how are you doing? you have your r.e. consult this week. i hope there is some light shed and you can make a plan. *hug*
hope, how about you? how are you doing? have you planned another cycle? have you met with your r.e. to see if there is a new plan of action to get you to retrieval? i am still so disappointed that you had to go through that again.
and crazyrunningmomma, how about you? are you cycling now? what's up?
