Alright, this is sooooo not good. I am only 1dpFET (1 day post FET) and I am going crazy thinking about signs of pregnancy! How am I supposed to last a couple more weeks?? I should have known this was going to happen considering I am a self diagnosed hypochondriac. The funny thing is I have always been that person who listens to potentially pregnant women going on and on about possible symptoms and have thought to myself "you are crazy, it's way too soon to be feeling symptoms!". I never should have judged these women because I am now one of them! So yes, I am fully aware that I am crazy but never the less I woke up this morning with crazy sore boobs! Dr. Lee said that implantation of the embryos will occur within 24 hours of the transfer so those little guys (or girls) are already sticking or they aren't...

Other then that, I am very ready to be done with bed rest. Don't get me wrong, it's been nice to get to lay around and have Mike wait on me hand and foot but I am ready to get up and walk around. It's not like I want to go run a marathon or anything, but I'd like to walk around a little! Mike is being so protective of me too, which is sweet. But seriously, he caught me walking downstairs to get ice cream from the fridge and he nearly ripped my head off! "What part about bed rest don't you understand?!?!", he practically yelled. I guess I'd rather have a husband who cares about me and our potential babies then one who doesn't. I just feel so cooped up! Also, Mike sucks at knowing what I like to munch on. I asked him to get me some snacks together before he left to go back to work and he brought me a bag of tortilla chips (sooo not my type of chip but furthermore he didn't even bring salsa or any other dip) and grapes! Ugh, I need to be back on my own feet pronto! And I'm not even going to comment on the mess in the kitchen because I knew that was going to happen.

Finally, I feel like karma has paid me a visit because I couldn't keep my big mouth shut about how the PIO shots haven't been hurting me. Yes, I am definitely feeling it now. It all started 3 nights ago when I said that I bled a little as Mike pulled out the syringe. The next night the shot itself actually hurt and I thought Mike must have hit a nerve or something. Well, last night I bled quite a bit again. I don't know if Mike is just starting to run out of places to stab me so maybe he is hitting past injection spots that are still sore? And as I was laying in bed this morning I happened to rub around the injection area and felt a decent size bump under my skin. I'm actually nervous for my shot tonight and am praying that it doesn't hurt or bleed!! I really hope that women out there who are blessed to be able to get pregnant on their own appreciate how lucky they are! I just keep reminding myself of what my sister always tells me, after all I've gone through pregnancy is going to be a breeze!


  1. I'm a bit further along in the process than you, but I'm also in the 2WW after IVF, and my husband has the same dx as yours. This is 2ndary IF for us, as we had a child in 2005.

    Good luck. Fingers crossed for you guys.
