The Waiting Game & Testing Decisions

Any fertility journey, infertility-wise or not, deals with a lot of waiting. Waiting for the next cycle to start, waiting to see if the medication works, waiting waiting waiting. Now I’m on the last part of the wait–the dreaded wait to test. 

My bloodwork is on Friday at 8am. They will be calling me with the results that afternoon. However, I’ve decided I will test with a home pregnancy test before then. Why? A few reasons. 1. I don’t want to be surprised at work  2. If the news is bad (though I’m still confident it will all be positive), I would rather have that at home to brace myself as opposed to being blindsided.  3. Since it was a FET, I don’t know any hcg from a trigger shot in my system so no fear of false positives. 

Now the major question becomes when to test. The earliest I have seen online positives are at 5dp5dt (which is Monday). However, that is still pretty early. So I haven’t decided if I will just do it then and brace for a false negative….or just wait til Wednesday-ish when it should be more accurate. 

Symptom-wise, I slept really badly last night. I had some vivid dreams and woke up with a headache and some nausea. I’ve had some mild cramping all day today as well. Hoping that little embryo is burrowing its way into my lining! 

2dp5dt 

Two days post-transfer! One week from today I have my official blood test to see if I’m pregnant! So crazy to think about. 

Bedrest is officially over! Woohoo! I’ve still been taking it easy obviously, since my little embryo should be implanting any time now. Not feeling anything except some tiny cramping every once in awhile and fatigue. I never nap but took a 2 hour one yesterday! Most likely that’s from the lovely progesterone which mimics pregnancy symptoms. 

I’m in that weird in-between area where I’m not pregnant but also not NOT pregnant. Some people call this “pupo” (pregnant until proven otherwise). That’s what I’m going with, minus the horrible acronym. I am feeling positive that everything is going as planned. This has been the most successful cycle so far with no hiccups in the process!
