Day 3 Post Transfer
Yesterday was my first day off of bed rest and nothing made me happier then just getting out of bed and walking around! Mike and I celebrated by going to an Apple Farm with both my parents and his parents. It was a little over an hour away from where we live but I think it was definitely worth the drive. It was so pretty and we got to pick tons of apples! Seriously, I'll be making apple pies and apple butter for months to come! It was also nice to just spend time with our families, drink fresh apple cider, and eat some good BBQ.
So today is Day 3 and I am feeling...normal, of course. Even if this does (fingers crossed) result in a pregnancy, I know I wouldn't be feeling anything yet. I have noticed that I am feeling slightly bloated already (greaaaaaat) and today I am feeling slightly crampy.
I'm also finally starting to intensely dislike the PIO/Delestrogen shots!! The lumps and soreness are really starting to get to me. It's getting to the point where just putting my phone in my butt pocket hurt because it was touching a lump/bruise. Last night's shot actually burned when I laid down in bed afterwards. Also, I'm not sure what medication is causing me to be extremely thirsty ALL THE TIME but I can't seem to ever drink enough water to quench my thirst. And because of that, I wake up at least twice each night to go pee. This means that I'm not getting a good night sleep which means that I am tired throughout the day etc... I actually fell a sleep around 10am this morning and didn't wake up until Mike called me around 11:45! Napping like that is soooo not normal for me. At least Mike seems to be a little more understanding about how all the hormones are making me feel this time. I thought he was going to say something about me sleeping so late when he called but instead he apologized for waking me up and told me to go back to sleep if I was still tired.
And who would have thought I would ever look forward to cleaning?!?! As much as Mike took great care of me while I was on bed rest, he didn't do as good of a job at keeping the house clean. I swear, it's impossible for him to put his dirty clothes in the hamper! Anyways, it was nice to be able to clean up and get everything back in order. But by the time I finished cleaning I was starting to feel really crampy so I decided to sit down and take it easy for the rest of the day. I'm going to let Mike grill for dinner and I'll take the night off. As much as I am happy to be out of bed, I don't want to go overboard and jeopardize the implantation of our embryos...
So that's it for now...
