Oh man, I should not have done this! Watch through the end and let me know what you think… Don’t judge based on the beginning of the video…

IVF | FET | 5dp5dt – Symptoms

Ok, so after the transfer I had cramps for 48 straight hours. Consulted with Dr. Google and he thinks that’s a good sign and that it could e implantation pains. But in order to to give me too much hope (or maybe not to get sued), he also says that it could NOT be implantation pains. I choose to believe the former. Read the rest of this entry

IVF| FET| 4dp5dt – I was a bad bad girl today…

Hi TTCers!! So today I had this crazy urge… to pee on a stick! Bad idea! There was no line that and I did freak out momentarily even though I knew it was too early… I went  straight to youtube and looked for other people’s tests and saw a lot of people that had tested on day 4 that got BFNs, but got BFPs after…plus my transfer was only at 1PM to technically I’m 3.5dp5dt… so I’m still in the clear!

My IVF Journey & A Case Of The Butterflies

I’ve read so many posts about how emotionally difficult the IVF process is and the strain it puts on relationships. A therapist told us that many couples seek therapy while going through the process and that many of them choose to never do it again, moving on to adoption instead, all due to the high level of stress.

IVF Update: 28 Embryos Brewing

We’ll soon find out how many survived to the blastocyst stage! It’s funny how IVF changed our TTC journey from pure anxiety to joyful and excitement. I haven’t felt this good in ages! 🙂

 

 

IVF Update | Record Breaking Egg Retrieval

You wont believe how many eggs were collected on Friday’s surgery! Since my shots were pretty much cut to zero half way through the stim phase, we all expected half the eggs to grow and the other half to just be there, immature. None of us expected the outcome to be this positive! 48 follicles were drained! Now we’re waiting for the freezing report in a few days.

Love,

Dani
