So....I'm kinda freaking out because I know that if Ben and Jerry decide to stick around, they will be officially implanting sometime around now. I'm terrified that I am going to do something to make that not happen! I know, realistically, there is not a lot you can do to promote or inhibit implantation but I still worry! My main issue the past few days has been (TMI alert) severe constipation! I have taken every remedy that I can think of and it really isn't happening (whimper). Now I'm worried (because, you see, worrying is what I do best) that because I am in pain, Ben and Jerry won't want to stick. ARGH! Someone please tell me I am crazy!
I just got the sweetest phone call from my mother-in-law. They had been away camping since Thursday so she hadn't seen the email I sent her with Ben and Jerry's picture until this morning. She was in tears, saying how happy she is for us and how she is certain that this is going to work for us (if only I was so certain). She is going to print off the picture and put it on her fridge. She thanked me for keeping her up-dated with all this because she knows it is hard to talk about. I sure hope this works!
So today is my last day home from work. I took a full week off after the retrieval at the advice of my RE to ensure that I had a few days off after what was most likely to be a 5 day transfer (HA!). Even though the transfer ended up being early, I decided to stay off work anyways. I am going to be as lazy as possible today!
OK, can we discuss Progesterone "suppositories"? I am on Prometrium, 2 capsules up the hoo-ha, twice a day. These have got to be the most disgusting things I have ever dealt with. Some days it seems fine and then other days I leak all day. GROSS! I am VERY thankful that my clinic believes the research that shows that suppositories are as effective as PIO because we all know how well I do with needles but YUCK! Seriously, the stuff us IF-ers have to deal with!
Wow, this was a really random post! Hope everyone is having a good week so far!
