La Vie Est Belle

The result for my 2nd Beta is 1927, so everything is on track. Wow, this all still seems so unreal! Still taking my prenatal pills and progesterone 2 times a day. Feeling great, no cramps, no pregnancy symptoms yet, except for one. At least I think it's a pregnancy symptom. I'm farting quite a bit or at least more than usual. Sorry, I think I shared too much, so I'll leave it at that.

Booked an appointment with the doctor for the 11 July 2011. It was the first available appointment I could get. I'm a bit worried, as I would have liked my first appointment to be a bit earlier, but these doctors seem to be crazy busy. They don't seem to care if you are a worried first timer, it's based on first come first served for these precious appointments. Oh well, c'est la vie et la vie est belle!

The Magic Number Is....

I am a poor egg producer, both my ovaries are covered with cysts and I still have Endometriosis, however I have beaten the odds! I have a bun in the oven! I'm knocked up! I have a big fat positive!

At the lab, I asked for my results and the receptionist handed me the envelope. I snatched it from his hands and right there and then I ripped it open with all my might. I'm surprised I didn't get a paper cut from opening the envelope like a crazy lady. The result was, as the French say, POSITIF! BTW, the magic number is 127.

I know I still have a long ways to go, and I need to retest on Monday, but this a golden moment and I am relishing in it!! This is a happy happy day and I'm doing my happy happy dance!

BETA Countdown

So far Aunt Flo has respected my request to stay away. Merci, merci, merci!

Here's a short summary of my activities and how I've been feeling physically since my FET.

Monday: FET in the afternoon. Feeling good the rest of the day. Stayed in bed most of the time and did some light cooking in the evening.
Tuesday: Feeling good and stayed in bed for most of the day. Did some light cooking for lunch and dinner.
Wednesday: Had mild cramps in my lower back in the afternoon for about an hour. Made lunch and dinner.
Thursday: Had mild cramps in my legs early in the morning for about an hour. Made lunch along with some light cleaning around the house. Went out for dinner with friends.
Friday: Cramp free day. Did the cooking and went grocery shopping.
Saturday: This morning started having some mild cramps in my abdominal area, but after a good rest and lunch in bed, the cramps went away.

Each day I don't have my period, I consider it a small victory, since this is the time of the month that it comes, like clockwork. With each day that passes my hope grows, but these cramping episodes do throw me off, however when I normally get menstrual cramps they don't go away. For the moment, since the cramps go away after about an hour, I feel reassured. 4 more days until BETA!

Aunt Flo Stay the Hell Away From Me!

The transfer is over and now it's the waiting game. Rather than going stir crazy, You Tube has a great variety of my favourite sitcoms such as Frasier, Roseanne, Cheers, Taxi, Everyone Hates Chris, etc. They say laughter is the best medicine. Perhaps I'm not sick, but I'm certainly sick of waiting.

6 more days until the the blood test, unless I get my period prior, which is a possibility. Yesterday late afternoon I started feeling cramps in my lower back, a sign of Aunt Flo knocking at my door. I was quite alarmed and went running to the bathroom, checking for any type of spotting. Nothing thus far (hallelujah!). During my sleep I got some mild cramps in my legs, so again I went running to the bathroom and again, nothing (phew!). The cramps didn't stay for too long, but my body usually have these types of cramps prior to a visit from Aunt Flo.

Stay home Aunt Flo! Take a break for 9 months or better yet go on a holiday! Heck, I'll welcome you back with open arms after 9 months, but just this once in my life I want you out of my life on a temporary basis. Please oh please, forget about me, forget my name, forget I exist!

On another note, I'm unable to post comments on other blogs for some strange reason. When I try to post, blogspot does not recognize that I am signed in. Really frustrating! Any help would be welcomed.
