IVF #3 5Dp5DT – The 411

baby - 5dp5dt

Today is officially 5DP5DT (five days past 5 day transfer of my embryos to my uterus) and I am a hormonal, hungry mess !  Why do I feel like I am on the verge of tears all day?  I can not watch sad stuff on television and I feel like I am overeating to every fricken thing.

I am feeling more twinges and slight cramping/digging sensations. Other than having to pee every five minutes, I am starving!  I got up at 1 am and ate even though I made homemade fried apple turnovers at 9 pm and ate two of them.  I can not seem to get full.   I am craving veggies, chicken or beef.  I do not know if it is due to the prednisone or not.  I hope it is the babies digging in and being greedy.

I am now taking 175 mg of synthroid, 20mg a day of prednisone, prenatal plus, 8mg folic acid, baby asprin, B6, 1200mg Vitamin D, four Citrical with mag +d, and injecting lovenox, neupogen, and PIO.  I have to do estrace and Endometrin in the am and another Endometrin at night.

So far, everything is a routine and has not been a problem unless I want to go out at random times.  As long as I keep my same schedule, it has made it easy for me to space my supplements and meds out 3-4 hours per dose.  I have also been taking one Dulcolax per day as well as a Claritin.

My beta is this week and I am dreading it.  With my mom starting chemo this week, I would rather focus my energy on that and just wait it out.  I have not decided if I am going to do a HPT on Tuesday/ Wednesday or not.  I may just wait for beta.
