Tomorrow is the scheduled date for my FET for the last lonely (ok quality) embryo, if it survives the thaw that is. I don’t think the clinic will call me if it survives the thaw or not. Most likely, I’ll just be told if the transfer is a go or not when I call in the morning to find out the more exact time of when I’m supposed to head into the clinic.
I also have a chiropractor’s appointment in the morning. My neck has been locked up and hurting something fierce lately (since while I was in Shanghai) and it just won’t quit. I love my chiro! On a side note, I have read that it has been beneficial to many women to go to acupuncture before and after an IUI, IVF or FET treatment. I wonder if the same could be had with going to a chiropractor? At least, I know I feel wonderful after my chiro appointments. My whole body just feels lighter and un-locked.
Let’s see how tomorrow goes…
aka Thankful Thursday
Today is CD13 of my cycle and also the day I was told to start POAS to test for O. After all the trouble I went through to get the pee-sticks yesterday, I had to test one last night. Besides, what girl can resist peeing on a stick when it is in her vicinity?! I know it was late (midnight) to be testing and that I wasn’t going to test that late the rest of the time, but I just couldn’t help it. The test line was quite faint, but it was there. Today though, the test line was much darker, but still not darker than the control. Fingers crossed for a darker test line tomorrow or this weekend so I can call the clinic to schedule my transfer for next week.
I know yesterday’s post was quite horrible, dreary and just down and out negative. That was exactly how I was feeling though. Today, on the other hand, has been much better. While I’ve still had a few small bouts of sadness, I’ve been much chipper and in a pleasant mood. I actually meant my smiles when I smiled today.
I’m not quite sure what got me into my horrible funk yesterday. Sure thinking about and missing my mom can do it. So can upcoming O-time hormones. But I really don’t know what triggered it, nor why it wouldn’t go away the entire day. Bleh.All I know is that I’m not feeling that way today and for that I am very thankful!
In honor of feeling perkier and it being Thursday (for 37 more minutes), here’s a few things I’m thankful for at the moment:
– Mr Siili cooked dinner before I got home, so all I had to do was re-heat it.
– I had 2 tv series ready for me to watch this evening. (Again, thanks to Mr Siili.)
– I had a snuggly kitty on my lap while watching my shows.
– I stayed 2 hours extra at work (boo), but I feel confident that I’ve sorted the customer’s account out much better than it had been in ages. One more thing to cross of my to do list!
– It’s Thurs-night! Only one more day of work until the weekend.
– I wore my new bra today and it didn’t bug me once! It also has a cute little jewel right in the middle.
– I’m going to bed now! I’m aiming to be in bed and asleep before midnight.
I got (what I think is) a positive OPK last night and again this morning, but the clinic is counting yesterday’s OPK as the day in which to count from. It would mean my FET would have happened on Monday, but no one is in the office on Sunday to thaw my lonely embryo. So, no FET this month.
Now, if I would have not tested yesterday in the evening or just not have said anything to the clinic, they would have gone by this morning’s +OPK and I would have my FET on Tuesday. Doh! Hindsight is 20 / 20.
I am quite sure I have ovulated today. I’ve felt pinchy-twingy-pangs on my right ovary area off and on during the day. At one point they were much stronger than the rest. Now, my right side is just tender and a bit crampy. It almost feels as if I was kicked in the ovary. I manged to talk hubby into a BD session last night and I’ve almost extracted a promise for another tomorrow (Friday). Not that I really have any hope or expectations that this cycle will be any different than the previous 35 cycles, but you can’t blame a girl for trying. Plus, I love my husband and I love being intimate with him!
I’m not too sad about the FET not working this month as I was already prepared for a summer break. The FET would have just been an added bonus and also allow us to start 100% fresh in the Fall. Now, we’ll have this one lonely embryo to try an FET with before going onto IVF #3. I’ve been in a good frame of mind for the last 2 or so weeks. I hope I’ll be able to continue this feeling of positivity and goodness. Having +25-30C degrees of wonderfully amazing weather right now doesn’t hurt either! (I’m so not cold! Even my feet are warm.)
Happy start of summer to all!
