FET #1: TWW!

TWW UpdateSo here I am, PUPO. My two week wait is actually only nine days. I didn’t document my symptoms from the fresh transfer, so there’s not much to compare it to. All I remember was that I had cramps for the first few days, then my boobs hurt, then they stopped, and it was a BFN. But I’ve decided to keep track of my symptoms this time so I’ll have something to look back on. I’ve also skipped a few of my Bar Method classes “just in case”. I only skipped one class last time, but I did cheat during class.

My meds per day are:

  • Three 2mg Estrace by mouth
  • One 2mg Estrace vaginally
  • Two 8% Crinone

Day 0 – 0DP6DT

Feel fine, kind of gassy, but that might be from the sushi.

Day 1 – 1DP6DT

Little bit of pinchy cramps, bloated

Day 2 – 2DP6DT

Felt fine in the morning, some pinchy cramps in the afternoon

Day 3 – 3DP6DT

Headache in the early afternoon, boobs are sensitive (maybe bra is too tight)

Day 4 – 4DP6DT

Bloated, a little bit of cramping, boobs are sensitive, but not painful like last time. Slept for 9 hours, and also took a two hour nap!! Hard exonerated strawberries which taste super sour to me, but they were apparently ok.

Day 5 – 5DP6DT

Super thirsty, dry mouth, very bloated, little bit of cramping, boobs are exploding out of my bra, a little tender.

Day 6 – 6DP6DT

Super thirsty again, boobs are a little more sore, huge blue veins going to my nipples, woke up to pee twice last night. Ate some cherries which again, tasted super sour to me.

Day 7 – 8 – 8DP6DT

Same as before. Boobs still tender, but not as sore as our fresh cycle. The veins seemed to have faded a little bit. Beta is tomorrow!!

FET #1 Update

FET Update
I am currently on day 21 of our first FET cycle. I must say, an FET cycle is a lot less stressful than a fresh IVF cycle. I don’t have to worry about going to the clinic everyday for blood work and ultrasounds, I don’t need to get jabbed with needles every night, and I don’t need to worry about my ovaries being over stimulated.

Raging Hormonal Bitch…That’s ME!

I’ve been on Estrace 3 times a day for about 2 weeks now. I never had hormonal mood swings when I took birth control, so this whole emotional thing is all new to me. This might be a rant post, so I apologize if I come across whiny. Continue reading

Microblog Mondays: IVF #1 Follow Up

#MicroblogMondays

A couple of weeks ago, I went to the clinic to have a follow up with my RE. DH had to work, so my MIL offered to come. I’m so blessed to have in-laws like them. Being Chinese, talking about feelings is unheard of. Granted, I feel completely awkward and uncomfortable when we do talk about feelings, and also when my parents hug me. But it’s different with my in-laws. I’m so open with them, we talk about everything, have open arguments/debates about stuff. There isn’t really anything I won’t talk about with them. Continue reading
