Final Cycle – Day 25

Final Cycle – Day 25

7dp5dt or 12 dpo

A whole week!!!! Its been a whole week since transfer, i cant believe it, its flown by if im honest.

Keeping busy works!! 

So in my previous pregnancies, at this stage i tend to come out in a rash, i call it the ‘progesterone rash’. 

Well….its appeared…albeit less obvious than normal but that could be because the steroids are masking it. I stop them on Wednesday.

Its made me 95% certain we are heading for a BFP. Its a lovely feeling! 

Funnily enough, the tests i ordered yesterday were on my doormat this afternoon! Im still not going to test though! 

My cycle buddy, T, has been testing a few days and today got her BFP, we are at exactly the same point, had the same symptoms so another reason im hopefull! 

Tonight Mr Me and I are going out for a belated birthday meal. Im so excited! I LOVE food at the moment!! 

Heading into the weekend feeling fantastic, what more can you ask for?

Cycle Day – 24


New day, new attitude.

I figure at this point, the IVF has either worked, or it hasnt, so i may as well think it has! 

Ive had lots of positive signs and symptoms, so theres a very reasonable chance that next week ill be pregnant.

My appetite is still good, cheese triangles being one of my favourite things atm. I also had a craving for liquorice today, which im sure i craved in one of my other pregnancies.

Anyway im feeling good, the weather in the UK is fabulous and its nearly the weekend! 

I booked my blood test today for next Wednesday (official test day) and i ordered my pregnancy tests for testing on Tuesday! 

Ive been a little crampy today, and had a stabby pain in my right boob. Good signs i reckon.

My ass is soooo bruised and painful. It was fine yesterday following the proluton jab on Tuesday night, but today, ouchy! I cant see the bruise (as in it hasnt come to the surface) but i know its there! 

5 days until i test. No desire to test any earlier at this point either.

Final Cycle – Day 21

3 days past a 5 day transfer/8 days post ovulation or egg collection

I had another, mostly, lazy day. I caught up with my counsellor, straightened my hair for the 1st time in 12 days, did some shopping (only light stuff Umit, i can hear you frowning as you read 😘) and did some washing.

I may aswell list my symptoms as i cant stop myself from noticing

  • Headachey
  • Crampy on and off, sometimes mild, sometimes strong
  • Some sharper pains in uterus at times
  • Sleepy
  • Craving bacon/food in general
  • Heavy/full feeling in uterus
  • Needing to pee more
  • This one may be a bit too much information for non IVFers – increased cervical mucus
  • Dizzy spells
  • Sore right nipple (although i do ‘check’ it regularly which probably isnt helping) 
  • Achey hips
  • Increased sense of smell
  • Mr Me says im short tempered, occasionally, my temper is now very short with him following that statement! Kidding, he is right tbh, im easily annoyed at the mo! 

Any and all of them could be explained by the meds, i know that and im trying to stay grounded, but im a little bit excited.
