3dp3dt - Call From The Clinic

My phone sucks. None of my emails, my post or my comments went through. Grr.

Heparin shots are no walk in the park. Twice a day is a bit of a bitch. However, I have found Progesterone shots turn me into a 5 year old. I actually told DH last night he could do the shot if he could catch me. And I kind of hid. Some have been okay, some have been quite painful. I'm getting used to it as is DH. But he is so sweet and keeps saying he's sorry it hurts and that it'll be worth it.

Bed rest was nice, DH took good care of me. I just spent time looking at the picture of our embryos and staying positive. Yesterday my mom came over while DH went ice fishing with his folks, and we cleaned out our fridge and freezer, something that really needed to be done. I sat in our office chair eventually because I got some pinchy pain in my lower left side. I wasn't lifting or doing any straining, but I haven't been on my feet much so if I even felt tired or sore I sat down. Then I rolled around the kitchen. It was kind of funny.

Today is my last day relaxing before going back to work. DH is positive this has worked and has agreed that I should test out the trigger if it makes me happy. Looks like I need to stock up on HPTs.

As for symptoms - my boobs hurt but it's from the progesterone. I pee constantly but I'm keeping hydrated with G2 Gatorade so I don't know if that's it. But I peed 3-4 times last night. Nuts! I have had some cramping a little over the past couple days but nothing painful.

I'm so nervous for the next week to pass because right now I'm PUPO. I don't want to be proven otherwise.


I got a call from the clinic this morning. I missed it so I suppose the voicemail the embryologist left was sufficient because it wasn't good news. The other two embryos did continue to progress after the Day 3 transfer, but they did not reach the standard for freezing. However, because they did continue to progress and since they were lesser embryos than the ones transferred, the embryologist believes the two inside me should be fine. But sadly, we have no frozen embryos. No safety net.

At least we get our $500 freezing fee back. :(

Bed rest was very nice and cleaning must be a nesting thing. Sorry about your embies but stay positive and know that the two in you are the only ones you need. Praying for ya lady!

Kim said...

Lets hope you dont need those would be frozen embies because the ones inside decide to take up residency inside your womb for the next 9 months. Glad you got some rest and praying that you remain PUPO :)

Don't read anything into the none left to freeze, it really doesn't mean much regarding the ones they transferred. As far as those PIO shots--I ALWAYS held an ice pack to my bum for ten minutes prior and then I didn't even feel them. Hang in there!

Sarah said...

Yeah no need for snow babies, you have two sticky thriving ones inside your baby maker :) Stay positive! This will work! :)

I'm sorry the leftover embies didn't make it to freeze :(

With the PIO, the higher up on your hip you do them, the less they hurt.

Good luck getting back to normal! And so sorry the two embies didn't make it, but I really hope that you don't need them now anyway!

Sorry the shots hurt. I giggled picturing you running and hiding from your hubby!

You are so funny about the progesterone shots!
I go back to work tomorrow too... looking forward to it, actually. It will be nice to focus on something else.

I'm sorry your embies didn't make it to freeze. :( Crossing my fingers that your other two are safe and sound.

I'm sorry your embies didn't make it to freeze, but I'm keeping the ones on board in my prayers!! Sending lots of positive vibes to you!!!!

I'm sorry there was nothing to freeze. We'll just have to pray extra hard these babies stick!!

Sushigirl said...

Good luck and I hope the 2ww flies in! It's a shame about the frosties, but remember there's no guanrantee that they'd have worked.

I'm sorry you don't have snowbabies :-(
I am keeping you in my prayers!!!!

Also sorry you lost out on the frosties safety net, but I agree with the previous poster that it doesn't mean anything for the ones inside you. They're the ones you have the best shot with, and my fingers are crossed that they're finding a great place to snuggle in right now!
