5 Weeks

I'm 5 Weeks today!!!!!!

So let's recap the last week

1/20/13-- Still POAS but my lines are now maxed out. I think I'm doing it out of habit now.
1/21/13-- see above :-p
1/22/13-- Spent the evening throwing up compliments of a stomach virus and morning sickness. Stopped POAS, I believe I'm pregnant.
1/23/13-- 1st Beta came back at 813 ; had to try my first "preggie pop" to combat my new "morning" sickness which came about 9:00pm and 11:00pm
1/24/13-- Nothing too exciting, more "morning" sickness.
1/25/13-- 2nd Beta came back at 1912, which made for a doubling time of 38 hours. Morning sickness now oddly gone?
1/26/13-- nada!


The embryo(s) (looking kind of like a tadpole) is starting to form major organs (heart, kidney, liver, stomach) and systems (nervous, circulatory, digestive). Baby's presence in your uterus triggers production of hCG (the hormone detected by pregnancy tests)... which triggers production of other hormones like estrogen and progesterone... which trigger all those great symptoms you've probably been noticing!

Plans Plans Plans

Three Days until we transfer.

That means that it's Seven Days until I take my first home pregnancy test.

Last time I started the day after transfer. Not because I thought it would be positive (Wow... there'd of had to been 12 in there or something...) But because I wanted to see that first FAINT line.

I'll be testing 4dp5dt this time, or for those of you that don't know IVF lingo--- 4 days past 5 day transfer.  Equivalent to 9dpo. I'm not expecting a positive unless both of them take, really.  Not that early. I will start reallying "needing" lines the next day.

I got my flight itinerary tomorrow. I'm so excited. After the miscarriage, it seemed like it would never get here. Especially after it was postponed several times.

The meds this time seem to have really flown by. 

I'm packing tonight, and tomorrow will be my last day at work before transfer. I fly out Thursday morning. 

It's just got to work this time. It really does. After this.. they'll only have two left. I'm paranoid that they'll want to try another surro with those last two. I wouldn't blame them.... but I would hate it. 

I can't imagine starting over again. Matching with someone, going through Legal again..... bleh.

Eight Days

We'll be transferring two little embies in eight days.  I cannot tell you how much I'm hoping it will all work out this time. Miscarriage is a stressful, long and sad experience.

Today was the last of my three lining check/blood works before tranfer. My uterus seems better than ever and I am so FREAKING excited.

I promise to have  juicy blog soon, but for now. Hugs and Love xx
