Today, I am 4W2D, and I am IN SHOCK still. It has NOT set in that my beta came back positive !
Some of the things I noticed that were similar to my 1st BFP after my IVF #1, when I got back from Upstate NY, I had a terrible allergy attack. It was very random and I felt like I was coming down with a cold. The same thing happened when we returned from Upstate NY from the clinic again. I ran out to Walgreens and picked up a bottle of Claritin and started taking it in the morning and in a few days, it cleared up.
I now have a significantly less appetite. Last week, everything had this weird taste to me. I could have sworn every thing I ate had a slight almond taste to it and it was such a turn off. I also feel pulses of blood swirling and I felt that during my 1st pregnancy and I also am often a little short of breath. These are also familiar symptoms.
I am still in disbelief that FOUR pregnancy tests yielded negative results. I will wait until Monday morning when I go for my second beta to POAS again.
My mother, of course, is over the moon about this and is already to start purchasing baby items, despite the fact that I have a storage unit with several huge boxes of baby items I amassed over the months I was preparing for IVF#1 and while I was pregnant. I asked her to refrain from making any purchases until I am at least 6 months pregnant.
I will update on Monday after I get my second beta results. Wish me luck !
