DE FET #3 - 5 Weeks, 4 Days

Today started out to be a very uneventful day. I decided to look back at around this time on my previous successful cycle to try and see if there were any similarities to this cycle, and at the time, there wasn't. Then almost like my DE FET #2 - 21dp5dt post in the body of it, it said that I had started to bleed at 5w4d. That's exactly today. And guess what. I started to bleed and it goes like this.

In the evening, around 5:00pm I had some weird stabbing like pains in my stomach, maybe it could've been gas pains but I wasn't sure so I decided to go to the washroom.  When I wiped there was a fair amount of watery red blood on the toilet paper. Maybe what most people consider spotting but not to me it wasn't.

I started to drink lots of water just in case this was happening because I hadn't drank enough water. Then at around 6:30pm I went to the washroom and it was still there, but it was getting a little lighter in color. The cramping was still there however but more like a dull pain. 

Now at 8:00pm it seems the cramping has pretty much subsided and the bleeding has become a lot less. Though It's kind of hard to tell how much less because I'm also using endometrin suppositories so some of its blood and some of it is the progesterone. Nonetheless I'm pretty sure it's getting lighter, I hope. Could this have been more implantation? 

I pray that everything is ok.

Oh and on the 27th of October I took another pic of the FERR's just to see the progress

DE FET #3 - 14dp5dt - Beta #3

I got my beta number, its 1835!! I think we are doing good, that's a 45.77 hour doubling time. Now I wait for the Ultrasound which will be November 6th.

As for symptoms, not much really. I have slight nausea so I find that I have to eat quit frequently and Im hungry ALL the time. I'm also thirsty a lot and fairly tired most of the time too. Let's hope those are all good signs.

And then for comparison from the previous numbers

DE FET #3 - 12dp5dt - Beta #2

I am patiently awaiting my beta results but this morning I did POAS again and it looks like the hCG line is now darker then the control like. Yayy! Hope that's a good sign. 

Ok I got my number and it pretty much doubled, it's 887!!!

I'm still above the Max line so I'm not too worried that it hadn't exactly doubled but it seems to look good to me.

DE FET #3 - 10dp5dt - Beta #1

OMG I got my Beta hCG results and its at 469!! I'm so happy. Now I have to wait until Wednesday to see if it doubles. Fingers crossed. I know we aren't out of the woods just yet. Next will be an ultrasound in hopes we see a yolk sac, fetal pole and a heartbeat. So for now I remain cautiously optimistic. 

Estrogen - 216  (I'm on oral pills so it's processed through the body differently. That's why it's lower)

Progesterone - 70

To think, this morning I though I was done. When I POAS'd I thought the hCG line was lighter then the 8dp5dt stick. It was a different package and lot number so maybe that's why it looks lighter. I may still be in the game!

DE FET #3 - 8dp5dt

This morning I POAS'd again, this time it was slightly darker than yesterday's. Yayy! In my opinion it's the same darkness as the control line. I'm going to try not to POAS tomorrow morning but I can't make any promises. 😁

Today little H and I went to one of his little play classes. It's at 9am and for some reason he woke up a few times last night and also woke up at 6am this morning so we were all a little tired today.  Let's hope we don't have a repeat tonight. 😳

DE FET #3 - 7dp5dt

Nothing really new to report other then I  tested again this morning and the line was a little darker which, in my opinion, is a good sign. Not as dark as I was hoping for but still darker then my last FET #2 on 7dp5dt. Fingers crossed.

DE FET #3 - 5dp5dt

The line is getting darker!!!! I'm just praying that this continues. 

Today I went for acupuncture, she told me that my pulses are very strong and that it's a really good sign. As far as symptoms go I'm still hungry a lot and if I don't keep up on the hunger then I tend to get nauseous. Still really thirsty and having slight headaches throughout the day.

DE FET #3 - 4dp5dt

Well I thought I could wait to POAS until Thursday, which would be 6dp5dt but I couldn't, I caved.  Today at 2:30pm I POAS'd and I got a very light positive within the 3 minutes on FRER (not sure if you can really see it in the pic but I assure you, it's really there). 

Yayy! I'm so excited!! It was probably very stupid of me to do it so early but at least now I have a base line as to whether or not it's getting darker. The POAS craziness has already begun. 😜 

I'm not sure if this is just in my head now that I know that I got a positive but since I tested my feeling of nausea and thirst has increased significantly and now - 10:00pm -  I've got a splitting headache. Maybe I just need to drink more water, who knows. G'nite!

DE FET #3 - 2dp5dt

It's 7:00pm and G and I are sitting in the local Portland Starbucks people watching, as usual. 

We didn't do too much today. We were going to go shopping but with our dollar being the way it is it really doesn't make much sense, even with some of the Columbus Day sales. So we walked around the Pearl District and went to yet another Starbucks, apparently our fav place to hang out to pass the time. :)

This 2ww is KILLING me and I'm only two days in. Symptoms so far are just continuous low grade pain in, I'm assuming, my uterus. I've had a few light nauseous bouts when I'm moving around a lot and getting a little hot. I also seem to be quite hungry a good portion of the day and crazy thirsty. These all could be from the progesterone or legit symptoms. I guess we'll have to wait and see. Iike I said before I'm totally going to POAS at 6dp5dt. 

Heading home tomorrow, can't wait to see our little man, I miss him so much!

DE FET #3 - Transfer Day

Today was transfer day!! 

Woke up early today, got ready, then went for a walk to get myself a decaf pumpkin spice latte. That's one beverage   I just have to have come this time of year. 😊
All morning I was waiting for the call as to how my embryos had thawed. 9:00 rolled my 10:00 rolled by, even 11:00. I thought to myself that's either a bad sign or a good sign. When we got to the clinic at 12:30 I met my acupuncturist and we went in to get started on a relaxing session. 

Later in the session the embryologist came in to tell me that they had to thaw 5  embryos but they were able to get 2 really good ones, thank goodness for that!  I now have only 4 left, crossing my fingers that it works. They seem to look good to me but I'm no expert that's for sure and they wouldn't give me the cell survival percent either other then they look great. 

Now I have wait nine days before the beta, but I'm more then likely going to POS before that. I'll keep ya'lll post
