Just like last FET, I will be chronicling daily my symptoms and pee sticks. Just a reminder: I had an hCG booster shot on the day of my transfer. It was 0.6mL.
Also, just for fun, here is a link to my last cycle's 2dp6dt post. Interesting, eh?
Symptom check:Well, last night I went grocery shopping. For TWO HOURS. Last thing I wanted to do. But since we are hosting yet another dinner party over here tonight, I had no choice but to spend my Friday night at the grocery store. During my two-hour adventure, I felt some slight intermittent cramps. This was about 36 hours post-transfer. Yes, I'm overanalyzing everything. But I don't think I was imagining them. And any other CD19, I wouldn't be having any cramps. I don't have anything going on down there unless I'm ovulating, or AF is ready to arrive. I'm hopeful that those cramps meant my little one was snuggling in.
This morning, even after eating breakfast, my stomach felt a bit queasy. It's just a touch of what I felt like when I was pregnant before. Not full on nausea, but enough of an off-feeling to notice. And sure, it could be meds. But, I hadn't taken any meds yet this morning, and my last dose of Crinone was last evening at 6:00 p.m. So... who knows!
Pee stick check:I've started out only using dollar store tests. Last FET I used both 88 cent Walmart tests and dollar store tests, but I think that was overkill. I also stocked up on FRERs, which I will start using on 4dp6dt.
Here are my sticks from yesterday and today:
The hCG booster didn't even show up in yesterday's test! And it was a decent hold and everything. Strange. This time around, the booster is coming across much lighter than FET#1. Not sure if that holds any significance or not.
But, like last time around, the 2dp6dt test is darker than the 1dp6dt test. I'm convinced that an hCG booster shot in the ass takes a day or two to get in your bloodstream. Yes, that's my professional opinion.
5 days until beta!
