IVF: Week 5

Disclaimer: I am blogging about my IVF experience in order to document everything that I've experienced during this process. I enjoy re-reading my previous blog posts, and since this is such a big step in our lives, I wanted to ensure that I wrote everything down for future reference. Feel free to read, or not.

September 24
1dp5dt (1 day past 5 day transfer)

I spent most of my day laying around in bed. I have heard so many conflicting things about whether or not to continue on with your normal activities or do bed rest. Either way, I assume that God will grant me a child if it's in his plan. We shall see.

Continuing on with the pineapple trick.

Oral dex (0.5mg)
IM progesterone (50mg)

September 25
2dp5dt (2 days past 5 day transfer)

This morning I had a slight sense of nausea in my tummy, but nothing came of it. Maybe it's the progesterone injections that I'm getting daily? Not sure. I am super hopeful and very excited.

Continuing on with the pineapple trick.

Oral dex (0.5mg)
IM progesterone (50mg)

September 26
3dp5dt (3 days past 5 day transfer)

I woke up feeling slightly nauseous again. In fact, I thought I was going to throw up but I didn't. I would gladly welcome any pregnancy symptoms if it meant that baby 1 & 2 are quickly growing inside my womb. Stick, babies... stick! Also, I went to the doctor in the AM to do lab work. They are testing my progesterone levels, which is needed to support a baby.

Continuing on with the pineapple trick.

Oral dex (0.5mg)
IM progesterone (50mg)

September 27
4dp5dt (4 days past 5 day transfer)

No nausea or anything today. However, my sleeping patterns have been slightly 'off.' I'm not tired at night, but during the days, I've been napping for like 5 hours straight. Also, I'm assuming the progesterone injections are making my body temperatures all funky: sometimes I break out into night sweats and wake up with a pool of sweat.

Last day of the pineapple trick.

Oral dex (0.5mg)
IM progesterone (75mg)

September 28
5dp5dt (5 days past 5 day transfer). Today is the day that my babies should be fully implanted into my womb.

No pregnancy symptoms, but I do have a pretty big headache that's been annoying me. Oh what I would give to experience pregnancy symptoms (if it meant that I was preggers.) Just praying praying praying.

Oral dex (0.5mg)
IM progesterone (75mg)

September 29
6dp5dt (6 days past 5 day transfer). I feel pretty normal at this point, but that's to be expected since the hCG pregnancy hormone should just now start being apparent in my system. Over the next few days, we'll see how I feel.

Oral dex (0.5mg)
IM progesterone (75mg)

September 30
7dp5dt (7 days past 5 day transfer). Still feeling normal. No symptoms to report.

Oral dex (0.5mg)
IM progesterone (75mg)
