It has been 9 days since they implanted my embryos. That makes them 12 days old since they consider day 1 the date of retrieval.
Am I pregnant?
Do I think I am?
I sure hope so!
Do I have signs of pregnancy?
Are they similar signs to PMS?
Can you sense my frustration?
I spent 3 years thinking every month was potentially “the month”. Tenderness, cramping, back pain, headaches, bloating… all of these were my typical “monthly” signs.
You can imagine why I am having a hard time going there in my mind again. While I feel “different” it could be my uterus and overall body readjusting to the effects of IVF. The meds, the procedures, and the stress have really taken a toll on me.
Secretly, do I hope this time is different? That maybe these really are pregnancy symptoms? ABSOLUTELY.
So here I sit, waiting, working, walking, wondering, but most of all
I know I am not wishing alone……and for that , I think you are all truly....…..
