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!
