The calm before the storm?

Posted in Infertility, IVF tagged , at 7:33 am by lifebytheday

I am now 9dp3dt (nine days post three day transfer) and amazingly, I’m feeling pretty calm.  I had a fabulous weekend – spent a lot of time outside, reading and hanging out with S, took my first trip on his new boat, and even got a little sunburned!  Oh, and I can’t forget girls’ night on Saturday, even though I had to leave early so S could shoot me in the butt. 😉 

I’m still feeling crampy and also strangely not interested in food.  I feel like I’m getting hungry more often, but nothing really tempts me, and even when something does, I can only get about halfway through before I’m sick of it.  I’m also more gassy (sorry ;-)) and just generally feel a little “off.”  Between that and the cramps, I’m feeling really hopeful for this cycle – which is making the 2WW a bit easier – but will definitely make a BFN harder to handle. 

I keep asking S “did I feel like this last time?”  I don’t think I did.

It’s all such a mind game, but I figure that it’s better to stay positive at this point in the game, so I’m letting my hope blossom a bit.

Hopefully we can survive these next 6 days and have some good news to celebrate next weekend. 🙂

    I’m loving those positive signs you’re getting. Bring on the cramps and twinges!!! yes yes yes! It’s a good sign, for sure!
    All dead for me on the symptom front unfortunately. 😦
