ICLW & 6dp3dt

This week is ICLW, International Comment Leaving Week.  It seems that I have missed the last 2 month's ICLW and didn't even notice.  Shame on me.  If you are visiting for the first time, or it has been awhile since you stopped by, this is a pretty important time for me.  Last Friday, Babe (i.e. hubby) and I just had our transfer of adopted embryos from NEDC.  You can read about it here if you'd like.  Please pray for a positive outcome as the last 2 transfer in November 2013 and January 2014 both resulted in chemical pregnancies.

Our first beta is next Tuesday, May 27th, the day after Memorial Day.

Today is 6dp3dt.  Today, the embryos continue to implant into the uterine lining.

This morning I gave myself the PIO shot as Babe is traveling for work.  It went pretty smoothly with no issues.  I met a friend for lunch and later, another friend for coffee.  By late afternoon, my right hip was really sore, so much so that I started limping.  I am wondering if I maybe hit a nerve during my morning shot.  By the time I got home, I could barely stand it, so I took an ibuprofen (I later found out I should have taken Tyle.nol instead!), put a hot pack on it and laid down to rest.  I was super tired anyways so I took a short nap.  By the time I got up, the pain has subsided a bit and was more bearable.

Not long after that, I had to give myself the evening PIO shot.  I do my evening shots on my left hip.  To relax the muscles of my left leg and hip, I had to put my most of my weight on my right leg, the leg where my hip was sore from this morning's shot.  It was not fun trying to twist my body to the left, using my left hand to give myself a shot, AND putting my weight on the sore leg.  In the end, I managed.  I'm hoping my left hip will not give me too much trouble tonight and that the pain on my right hip will be gone tomorrow.

So far, no real symptoms.  No real cramping either, maybe just some uterine "stirrings".  Not sure if that is a good or bad thing.

5 more days to our first beta test!


  1. I'll leave a comment! I've been following your blog for a few months now and I am praying that THIS is the transfer that results in a baby for you! I can tell you and Babe would be wonderful parents that any child would be blessed to have. I am eager to hear how everything goes. :)

  2. :( So sorry you hit a nerve. Praying those little ones are snuggling in for the long haul. Praying for a positive result come Tuesday.

  3. I wanted to echo Kristin's comments. Like her, I found your blog over the last few months and have been praying for you. I appreciate that through this journey you have not lost hope or your sense of humor. The videos that you posted are also the first time that a friend and I who have had similar struggles to you could laugh about this. I am praying that after the Tuesday test, your posts will be about pregnancy symptoms and the joy of carrying your baby (or babies)! R

  4. I will be praying for a positive beta on Tuesday. I can remember how stressful the wait is and I hope you can find an opportunity to be restful while you wait!

  5. Good luck girl! I am 1dp3dt myself. Sticky vibes all around!!!
