IVF #3 6DP5DT – The 411

baby - 6DP5DT

No, I did not POAS (pee on a stick), but this was the only image I could find with 6DP5DT.  So yes, today is 6DP5DT and I am feeling a lot of mild cramping.  It is akin to pre-period cramping.

Today, I took it a bit easy.  I made my famous mouthwatering meatloaf, mashed potatoes, fresh whole string beans, and roadhouse yeast rolls.  Everything turned out amazing !  I am now deciding if I want to cut the cheesecake that I made two days ago. I have not had the heart to cut it yet.

I am truly starting to go into freak out mode ! I am worrying about the cramping, although we all know that cramping is very normal during the implantation period and I have 2 more days of the implantation period.  By Wednesday, HCG should begin to show up in my bloodstream.  This suspense is nerve wrecking.   I have tried to keep myself occupied by baking, cooking and writing, but my mind wanders with every twinge and cramp.

Tomorrow is my mom’s first chemo session.  I am really nervous about her doing this course of chemo drugs, as it is reportedly extremely harsh and can damage the heart.  Her oncologist opted to spread her treatments out over a longer period instead of over 6 weeks, as to lessen the damage and hopefully be less harsh on her body.  She has already started her protocol requirements today.  I am just praying that these meds kill every single cancer cell in her body and that this is the last time she will ever have to deal with the big c.

  1. I’m sorry that you’re worried about cramps. I had them quite a bit and thought it was scary too. Hugs! ❤

    I will be thinking of you and your mom. I'm glad the doctor is spreading the chemo out. My doctor had to do that after I started because it was so hard for me to tolerate. I hope it goes as well as it can go when it comes to that sort of thing. *sigh* ❤

    • Girl, she came home from chemo today and was NORMAL ! She was in here sweeping her sewing studio and trying to find something for me to do LOL. They gave her a steroid. This time she did not have to do benedryl and the stuff that makes her sleepy so we are in for it now LOL. No nausea… nothing ! 🙂

      I am still having twinges and lower back pain. I felt queasy today so fingers still crossed 🙂

      • She is NOT putting me to work. I hired her a housekeeper. That is their job lol. I am NOT trying to be domesticated lol. I did bake her a batch of chocolate chip english toffee bit cookies while she was at chemo. She enjoyed a few of those when she got back. But… I am NOT vacuuming… I draw the line at cleaning up lol
