Posts Tagged ‘Pain’

it has been one whole week since we have been able to get any type of news on how well our baby(ies) are progressing. I believe everything to be good still though, I have not had any more spotting at all and no pain other then the achiness, pinching and pressure to which my fertility clinic says all is normal.¬† Also I have become so very tired lately that I started laying down during the day and at about 8pm I get super tired and just want to go to bed…. but I can’t go to bed until I do the PIO shot at 10:30 ūüė¶ so not fair. my nausea has gotten steadily worse this past week to which¬†today during the middle of church of all times I had to¬†run to barely make it in time to the toilet.¬† Breasts are still sore and my bras are starting to get tight… due to my fibromyalgia, I was hoping it would not kick in until 4-6 months pregnant but it has started already. My lower back is spasming and any time I get out of a chair, bed, couch… I get a intense burning sensation followed by a lighting sensation that shoots up my spine and down my legs. My hips are also killing me and are sitting at a level 7 pain all the time now, and my fibro skin is back, meaning my skin is extremely sensitive to the touch to a painful level.¬† I hope everyone is having a wonderful night.

So my HCG count is up to 298 which the fertility doctor says my numbers are doing amazingly well! This time I get to wait a week till I have my 4th BETA but when I get those results we set up the first ultrasound appt!!! I so can not wait!! So today I am 4 weeks 5 days pregnant. I have¬†tender breasts, a tiny bit of morning sickness all through out the day though I have not puked yet, I’m more tired then I have been but not enough for a nap yet, ¬†I have pressure in my lower stomach and¬†lower back pain to which the doctor says it’s normal, I feel like I am coming down with a head cold that has not arrived yet for days now and my appetite has decreased.¬† So all in all I feel great!! lol Hope everyone is having a wonderful day!

I caved in last night and took a test… it came up with a faint positive. I don’t know why but I took another test this morning when I woke up and it was negative, now I’m having medium cramps and I’m worried on the 13th it will be negative still.¬† Was last night’s a false positive could it be the trigger shot was still in my system and it is to early to get a positive or should I prepare for the worse..¬† I was given the trigger shot Jan 28th and yesterday I was 7dp2dt., I don’t know how long it stays in your system. the ivf nurse told me the day we had the transfer to not test until the 12th…

We are getting so close! I am 8dp2dt now! No more cramping and only mild pain around my belly button and feeling pressure in my tummy.¬† Symptom wise, anything comes near my breasts I will kill it, have to pee¬†more often, mood swings like crazy!!¬† I have 4 more days till I have the blood test done, which we heard from hubbys boss yesterday… Feb 13th Jason has to drive 3 hours away for a training class that he already missed the first one due to ivf.¬† So I get to go do the blood test on my own and deal with the results on my own until hubby comes home at 3pm. now we both honestly think it worked and there wont be a problem. But we also know there’s always that chance that it didn’t work, or that it did but we are now miscarrying. I know we will get through it though. I’m already dying to POAS!! but hubby keeps telling me NO! LOL Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

me with a picture of our 3 little embryos right after our transfer

me with a picture of our 3 little embryos right after our transfer

So had the transfer yesterday!! The embryologist wasn’t there when we first arrived, so the doctor came in and explained why he was doing the transfer 2 day and not 3. There was no issues he had just decided that he wanted to transfer all 3 of them into me to give us the best chance due to our history but he said I don’t know how your eggs are doing since the other doctor isn’t here yet. . About 30 mins later the embryologist showed up and my bladder was so mad at him but quickly forgave him because he showed us a picture of our little eggies and then explained the grading scale, for those who do not know… it goes class 1 through class 5, 5 being very poor and 1 being excellent. so 1 of our little eggies was a class 2, it was a 5 cell embryo but had slight fragmentation which made it drop to the class 2. the other 2 embryos were 4 celled perfect circle embryos that were class 1!!!!!! So they took me into the room to get the transfer and allowed Jason to scrub up and go also. Hubby kept busting out a camera trying to video tape the procedure!?! Hello!! mot going to happen! and did not happen! He quickly got over it through when they brought in the embryos and transferred them ūüôā The doctor came in the room again after the transfer and told us “well I wasn’t expecting your embryos to be the best of the best which is why I had decided to transfer all three. So I just wanted to let yall know and understand that triplets is a major possibility since all three embryos were so great. Now we will be hoping and praying of 1 -2 babies because triplet pregnancy comes with a lot of complications’. I do not see why this cycle would not work at all but please understand that they may not implant or we could still miscarry.” TRIPLETS?!?! Oh my goodness….. oh and hubbies first words after doctors speech were… “I don’t know if I can do 3 college funds?!?!?!” LOL that’s my husband always thinking about money. so I was on bed rest yesterday and couch potato today and if hubby had his way I would be on bed rest till pregnancy test which is Feb 13th. Oh I was wondering if any of you have experienced stomach pain more then cramping ranging from mild to moderate, it comes in waves and I have notice that it gets bad when I have pressure like when i got to pee! Would that be the follicles or from the transfer do yall think? I understand with my fibromyalgia the pain feels worse then it probably is but OUCH man. Hope everyone has a great day!

I was told and even signed a paper when I first came to this ivf clinic to NOT bring babies or kids due to the nature of this clinic and I agree with that so why is it there are 2 babies here this morning!?! I’m already hormonal as it is this just hurts!

My insurance includes nurse phone call to check up on you and help you with whatever health goals you have. So this morning I talked to a nurse for about 35-45 minutes she just kept asking me the same question over and over.. “but.. how do you handle the every day pain and fatigue being off your medications?”, I said I don’t really lol she couldn’t understand how I could deal with all the pain let alone all the other symptoms I have due to the fibro and the other illnesses I have. That’s Life though, no use in fussing over the hand your dealt when your energy can be used so much better in trying to learn ways to live and be happy!¬†With the aid of medications I was able to lead an almost normal life when it came to just the fibromyalgia. Without my fibro meds my pain has increased, It stays around 6-8 every day mostly in the same areas, my back, hips, knees, wrists. The pain I can deal with though, I don’t like it (took ten years to get the diagnose so¬†10 out of 12 years no meds), it’s¬†the fatigue that kills me. I can barely get anything done at all around my house let alone get up and do any of my work outs to try to lose the 40lbs I want to lose before I try IVF again. I told her I do music therapy which helps with the pain along with seeing a therapist which helps with the coping of having lifelong illnesses.¬† I have no idea what I can do to help with the fatigue besides meds and¬†since I can’t take any at the moment I would love to hear anything that may help¬†it, ¬†if any one has any suggestions please I’m all ears!
