Hey there Lovelies,
So, after transfer, started the longest two week wait of my life. You’d think I’d be used to the TWW by now. Being as I am, after all, three years into this hell. That’s a lot of Two Week Waits I’ve endured. Let me tell you though, it did NOT make this one any easier. Especially since my clinic doesn’t test until 14 days past transfer. Most clinics do this at 10 days past … not mine, mine likes to drag that shit out. So of course I spent the whole time symptom spotting.
My Two Week Wait Symptom Sheet:
Day 1 and 2 past transfer: Not much to report.
Day 3 past transfer: Strong cramping in the evening. A little more tired. Intense craving for a bagel with cream cheese.
Day 5 past transfer: Moody and tired and crampy. Boobs ridiculously sore. Got a hug and thought I might die.
Day 6 past transfer: Boobs are still sore and all of a sudden HUGE. Like can’t fit in my tops huge. I’m not imagining it, I couldn’t do them up! Like two cups sizes huge. And my hair is way more greasy than normal.
Day 8 past transfer: Boobs sore and huge. Greasy hair still and feeling wickedly dehydrated. Like no matter how much I drink I still get deep lines from my pants.
Day 9 past transfer: No cramps really for a few days and then all of a sudden deep achiness in abdomen. Boobs still and hair still.
Day 10-14 past transfer: Boobs still sore and getting veiny. Hair greasy and limp, I do not approve. Still felt ridiculously dehydrated all the time.
Day 14 was my beta HCG blood test… but it’s not instantaneous. I have to wait TWO MORE DAYS for results.
I keep thinking that if these were all just from the progesterone and estrogen meds then I want my money back. I know not to look too far into symptoms because the meds can mimic pretty much any and all of them. So saying “oh, but thats how I KNEW I was pregnant” isn’t valid here. They are REAL symptoms, but may or may not be caused by a real pregnancy. Infertility is a tricky bitch. Then again, it felt good to have SOME symptoms. Gives me something to obsess over whilst I wait. Like how these were not my symptoms last time I was on progesterone… But I’ve never been on estrogen… Tune in Thursday when results will go up.
