I know it is WAY too early for any REAL pregnancy symptoms, but feeling like this makes me have POAS on my mind! Do you think I can hold out? I have one FRER upstairs. I should just go use it, to get it out of the house! WHY OH WHY is the 2WW so hard!?
You really forget how difficult it is, until those P4 symptoms kick into high gear!
I've been pretty crampy since 1dpt, but I will list yesterdays...
- 2dp6dt- cramps, twinges, EXHAUSTED by 3pm (I couldn't finish putting away the groceries I had to lay down!), not a huge appetite.
- 3dp5dt- woke up with a dull headache and its been coming and going today, cramps still, maybe my bb's are getting sore (?), emotional, really tired all day, not a big appetite.
One thing I forgot to mention prior to transfer... So a week prior to transfer I had been reading about assisted hatching and noticed on all the sites that it mentioned that the steroid, Medrol is necessary to take so your body doesn't reject the embryos and have an inflammatory response. Well, once I realized that, I immediately called my RE's office to speak to a nurse. Only Barbara was available and she is not my favorite. She always seems to make me feel like I'm asking too many questions. Anyway, she said that they no longer use Medrol because new studies have shown it doesn't help either way.
That was not good enough for me!
I emailed Dr. A. and she said that it was true that they didn't normally give Medrol anymore, but looking back at my twins cycle, I WAS ON MEDROL!!!! Can you believe that!? She said it would be up to me if I wanted it again. I replied, "absolutely since that was my one cycle that worked!"
I can't help but wonder if that was my missing link for the last three cycles! So LAME!
This journey can be so frustrating!
I started the Medrol Sunday and finished yesterday. I had to take 4 pills a day for 4 days.
This morning I also woke up with a sick feeling in my stomach too! I realized that Assisted Hatching, AH, was not mentioned at transfer and it wasn't on my embryo report. I have been on the phone with my RE, and no one has an answer for me! Apparently they are short handed in the lab and the embryologies haven't gotten back! I just want to confirm it was done... for peace of mind, I guess!
I told C about my fears that AH wasn't preformed. His reply, "Gods bigger than assisted hatching!" Duh! He is so confident this is going to work this time! I love it! I really need some verses to rebuke doubt right now! I think I will google some...
Wow! For those of you who need a kick in the pants on FAITH, read Hebrews 11. So good!
