Worry Worry and More Worry- The 411

baby - worry

Today is officially SIX days past five day transfer.  I do not really have any symptoms indicating pregnancy is transpiring. I try to keep in mind that implantation occurs during days 4-9 after the transfer. HCG does not begin to show up in the bloodstream until day 6 and by day 8 or 9 is when the HCG is more concentrated in the bloodstream. 

Like a little dummy, I started testing on day 4 to rule out the trigger still being in my system.  

Last time, I had some symptoms by now.  I was at least feeling twinges and more “digging” or “rooting” of the embryos into my uterine wall.   I felt some digging on day 4 but nothing since.  I also had shortness of breath and sore breasts last time as well, but not sure if it was this early.  I did not realize that Crinone Gel 8% causes pregnancy type symptoms and I used Crinone last cycle.  This cycle, I am using Endometrin.  The only symptom I have had from Endometrin was initial irritation.  I also forgot to eat tons of yogurt after my retrieval as well while taking the antibiotics and I ended up developing a yeast infection.  I sent an email to Dr. Grossman and asked if I could take something OTC since applying topical yogurt with live cultures was not clearing it up.  He ok’d Monistat 1 and I took it and it worked.  I feel much better.

I have decided not to take another HPT until Monday which is day 9 after transfer.  I am supposed to go for beta on Monday as well.  I tested days 4, 5, and 6 and there is only one line showing up.  Granted, the tests I am taking are the cheap dollar store tests.  I purchased Clear Blue Easy tests for Monday.

I am going to be really blown if none of these embryos stick.  I do have one frozen embryo to transfer later if need be from my first cycle.  How ironic and cruel would it be for my first cycle to be a BFP, although I lost her, and my second be a complete bust?  UGH!  This is so nerve wrecking.

On top of all of this stuff going on, my mom noticed a bump/lump/growth on her breast.  It is the same breast a mastectomy was done on 7 years ago.  She has been cancer free for 7 years.  The MRI results showed a mass growing on the skin, but they have to do a biopsy to determine is it is benign or malignant.  We are praying that is scar tissue or a benign growth and not a return of the cancer.  The fact that she has been so cranky, irritable, and overly exhausted these past few months, is not a good sign.   When it rains, it pours !

Okay God…. balls in your court… Your battle !  I will sit over here patiently and pray while YOU work all this out.
