2dpt some very light cramping feeling laterally across the lower abdomen.
In the afternoon- briefly my left breast felt like it was badly bruised but the pain oddly went away.
Getting teary at movies- but do I always get teary at movies? I think so.
3dpt feeling nothing.. Wish I felt something. With my 4th IVF I'm often thinking- why do I think it will work this time. But I'm trying to stick to the "Positive" which is that I've only had two transfers (2 from first fresh, and 2 first FET) and technically another day 5 embryo transfer to a surrogate. BUT- I've only had 2 transfers- they weren't genetically tested like these ones, and my lining was never this thick. So why shouldn't it work?
4dpt maybe feeling very light lateral cramping near ovaries/ute and maybe some breast pain... but nothing significant. Tested this morning with an expired Wondfo (5am-9am holding) and it was stark white. Before fertility treatments when I was TTC, I used to POAS and inevitably get my period like THE SECOND later. I hated seeing all the negative tests- so for all of my previous IVF transfers (all two of them), I never tested at home. But I just feel like testing- because I want to know that it is working. Please God let it be working.
Weepy eyed over movies- but nothing completely out of the norm...
Beta is Oct 6th. I will, though, completely given up hope if at 9dpt I haven't got a positive on a HPT.
(Meds: Del Estrogen injections every 3 days (0.15 mL of 40 mg/mL), 3 Estrace tablets vaginally/day, and progesterone shots (1 mL/day)**)
TRIGGER WARNING- BLOOD/SHOTS Gross story about giving myself intramuscular injections follows- FYI Stop reading if you get queasy.
So I was all excited because I gave myself a progesterone butt shot!! My hubby was there supervising because we were preparing for the times when he would be away so that I could give it to myself. It was painless and just an awkward position. I couldn't really pull back on the plunger to check for blood- so I asked my nurse and she said it was "ok" to do the thigh BUT it hurt more "so stick to the bum".... I'm a mutant and I don't really feel pain (not really, but they do say red-heads have higher pain thresholds, which in my experience has been true)- so I decided I'd do it in my thigh. So for the first shot by myself- I chose the meatiest part of my leg and went for it. As I'm going in I think that the needle is seeming very long and because of that I'm kind of going slowly- and BOOM- I hit bone. The needle just stops and I feel a pinch- so I pull back the needle a bit- and although the needle isn't in all the way, I deliver the meds. Immediately I think that I have giving myself a bone infection- so I call my favorite nurse friend/aunt- and she tells me it's not going to kill me. Thank goodness. It happens from time to time- and the needles are just too long for me to do the thigh. For the bum shots- the needles are meant to be long because they go through all the fat layers to the muscle beneath- but in my leg there isn't a lot of fat and it went straight through the muscle to the bone.
