It seems like this two week wait is dragging on. So slow. Like really slow. I mean, like molasses. Did I mention it's going slow? It's funny how this cycle is coming along so different. From the get go. I mean, the first time around we had troubles with meds, cancelled cycles, the full cycle didn't go well. The day before the transfer we were ready to transfer 3 because they looked so bad. Then none made it to freeze. I played it safe after the transfer, took it easy for 4 days, didn't lift anything heavy. This time around we had a great cycle, a smooth retrieval and transfer of 2 beautiful embies. 6 made it to freeze on transfer day (at the cleave stage) and 4 more made it to freeze on Saturday at the blast stage. (last time they all died before they reached blast stage). I hardly relaxed for 1 day (it's hard with a toddler around!) but managed to not really lift her on day 1. Day 2 was a different story, I went back to work, picked her up from daycare, and then K got sick. Yep, he caught the fun strep throat I had 2 weeks ago - apparently it has a 2 week incubation period. But I digress.
So, I'm bloated. Like really bloated. I've gained a couple of pounds, but I LOOK pregnant. I think I may call the RE tomorrow and just ask about OHSS (Ovarian Hyper Stimulation Syndrome). I've been a little short of breath, nothing bad, but that with the bloating, I'm just wondering. But that gives me even more hope, because this weekend would have been implantation. If I get pregnant, then the OHSS will get a little worse, and I didn't have the symptoms before. So I'm hoping that this means HCG is starting to course through my system while one or both of my babies snuggle in for a good long haul.
Blood work isn't until a week from Thursday. I'm considering peeing on a stick this weekend. I just don't know if I can do it, I want to know so bad. Plus next Thursday I have to travel for work, so I'd have to ask to either do it a day early or postpone the test a day, because I don't want to get bad news and have to drive. I just don't know what to do.
On another note, I had an interview for my boss' position on Friday. I still think he's got someone external picked out, so I asked him if I didn't get it to give me some advise, he said keep doing what I'm doing as I'm a shining star and have a great future there (woot) and to get my masters. Some of you may remember when I took my GMAT late last year (and didn't do very well), but then the new job happened, and the move, and I just haven't made it happen. So I will, soon. Fall or Spring, and that's scary with (hopefully) 2 kids at home (or maybe 3, who knows!!)
Ahhh, the joys of life.
