I had a really bad day today. First off I hardly slept last night. I still have my OHSS symptoms which make every waking moment very uncomfortable. Early in the afternoon I started to feel period cramps - which would make sense, she's due any day now. When I went to the washroom this evening there was a pink tinge to my CM. I knew it was over.
Let's face it. This was not your text book IVF treatment. Our fertilization and embryo reports were in the crapper. We didn't have any leftover embryos to freeze. I've got a mild case of OHSS which makes all clothes (including maternity clothes) incredibly uncomfortable. To borrow a phrase from Fertility Chick - I was feeling pretty stabby.
I told Hubby that I would probably call in sick tomorrow. I didn't think that I could stand to be around people after getting my period and/or testing BFN.
Thanks to gallons of Gatorade that I've been drinking I decided that I may as well test tonight. Why not cap off my crappy day with more bad news - right? Wrong! Look what I got!
I don't know if I actually believe it or not. I have to keep looking at it as it sits on the coffee table. Don't tell Hubby but I'm tempted to bring it to bed with me tonight!
My "official" test is on Friday.
We beat so many hurdles to get here, now we have to hope that this pregnancy sticks.
