My transfer went well on Monday. The embies thawed well. I stayed on a self imposed bed rest until I flew home on Thursday. Unfortunately, when I got home, my beloved 18 year old cat wasn't doing well at all. I ended up taking her to be put to sleep that night. Needless to say, I was an emotional wreck. I tried to control my stress, but that was impossible. I caught up on my sleep last night and felt better.
I made a conscience decision to not become obsessive during the wait. My mind has been occupied, so that hasn't been a problem until today. I took my very first HPT this morning and there was no second line. I wasn't expecting one because it's very early (I don't know if this is day 5 or 6 past 5DT-are we supposed to count the transfer day?), but I couldn't help it. I figured it would be a baseline. Even though I was fullly expecting it, I still hit the message boards and started obsessing! I've had a headache, hot flashes (more like a temporary flu like feeling) daily and trouble sleeping. That I chalked up to progesterone. Then yesterday I started felling twinges. I figured that couldn't be progesterone because I've been on it for 1.5 weeks and I just started feeling them. Online, I read that it is and is not a symptom of progest. So, that didn't help. I was about to give up and go to bed, but decided to take another test. Luckily, I didn't have to obsess for too long. Tonight's test has a faint second line! :)
