I've Been a Little Naughty... 5dp5dt (FET)

This 2ww is different than any other I've experienced.  I realized, there is NOTHING I can do to make this microscopic, yet beautiful, embryo stick around.  It is either going to implant... or not.

I was always so fearful before...

No moving
No working out
No BDing

Well, I've broken all the rules.

I didn't do bedrest the second day (but rested a lot), I drove my car (1dpt), I took a Barre class 3dp5dt, sweated my booty off,  BD with my hubs, and I've been super active with my boys.  Its impossible with three year olds to just lay around!

I'm not doing anything high impact, and I took it easy with the BDing ;-)

On other end of the spectrum, I listen to my body and rest when I need a break, put a movie on for the boys, etc.  But, I have freedom!

It is OKAY to continue what you were doing before, if you were already active!

As for symptoms, they are getting stronger!

After posting my symptoms on my last post at 2dpt, I noticed my boobs were getting sore on the sides.  It's getting worse, along with the fatigue.... Progesterone?

I was looking back on my symptoms from my last pregnancy, and I noticed I had these sore boobs before, but they started going away, then returning!  So far they are just getting worse!

5dp5dt Symptoms

Cramps on and off, bloating, sore boobs, and fatigue!  I had NO progesterone symptoms for the five days before the transfer, and I started feeling my boobs getting sore the night of 2dp5dt.  Its looking good!  Praying they continue to get sore!!!

Here is a little pic of my boys yesterday at the park, which I rode my bike and pulled them in a trailer!  I'm staying active ;-)

Rocco (pushing) and Maximus (riding) 3 1/2 years old... my Huntington Beach Babes :)

Its been four years since I was pregnant with them!  Its crazy how much you forget, but man, I'm ready for it again!

I've been binge reading your blog all day! It was so great reading about your journey to your beautiful twins, and it's exciting that you're now starting this process over again. Keeping my fingers crossed for a successful FET for you!

Hi! I'm just visiting from ICLW and so excited to read more of your blog. I also gave have twin boys (17 months old) after infertility and hope to try for more! I'll be crossing my fingers and saying a prayer for you. Also, your sons are just gorgeous!

I take it you're not testing then? You have willpower of steel, woman. I start testing 4dp5dt (I have NO willpower). Good luck to you!

Twins are the best! Congrats and thank you so much!!

I apparently have no will power either! I have the 'I'm pregnant' feeling, so I went out and bought tests! POAS first thing tomorrow!! Eeeeek! I hope my intuition is not wrong!

Hi!! Thank you so much!!

At my clinic, I wasn't told to have bed rest ever. They did say to take it easy for a day or two, but that life could basically resume "like normal" after a transfer. Glad to hear you're feeling great about this and to see your BFPs now a few days later.

Unlike JustHeather's, my clinic prescribes 24 hours of bed rest. Every cycle I did that for ended up BFN. The last two I did normal activity post-transfer and ended up BFP. Not sure if that was a contributing factor but it never made sense to me to just sit still and NOT get blood pumping through your body.

I'm currently going through IVF. I in my 2ww right now. They told me absolutely no working our or aerobics during this wait. They also had me on bedrest for 48 hours after. I'm going crazy not being able to workout. I also forgot to ask if it was okay to drink Shakeology right now along with my prenatals. Your blogs have been very helpful. Thank you for sharing!!
