1dpt

That’s 1 day past transfer 😊

What does 1dpt look like? It looks like a lot of catching up TV shows and video games. I wish I could say I slept in, but I woke up at 6:30am when the hubs got up. I spent most of the day on the couch since the kids were at school. Once they got home I headed to the bedroom so they wouldn’t be tempted to climb on me.

IFs sent a beautiful flower arrangement that definitely brought a smile to my face. They told me yesterday that during breakfast they were explaining to their daughter (as much as you can to a 2 year old πŸ˜†) about the transfer and that she was nodding confidently and saying “yes, yes” How cute is that? I told them I hope she’s right!

I’ve had some light cramping off and on. I’ve had that before with my other successful transfers, but not with the failed one. Obviously it doesn’t mean anything at this point, but I’ll take it as a good sign just because I can. I’m talking to embaby a lot, telling he/she (although I keep unintentionally “bub” which is what I call baby boys out of habit). To stay put and grow big and strong. That they have a whole family waiting to meet them. That if they stick around they’re going to have an amazing life earth side and go on so many adventures.

I mostly feel really positive about this transfer, but it’s easy for the self doubt to creep in. Negative Nelly pops up to point out that this embryo actually has a pretty low chance of sticking around no matter how good I thought it looked on the screen. Before the last failed transfer I had only known successful transfers. I counted myself so lucky because I know that’s not the case for a lot of GC’s. Now having had one you temper your excitement a little because you know there’s a chance it doesn’t work out. In this case with the embryo not being the best quality, there’s an even greater chance it doesn’t work out. Even so, I’m choosing to have hope that this is the baby IFs were meant to have πŸ’•

I haven’t bought and at home pregnancy tests yet because I don’t want to be tempted to take them too early. I figure if I don’t order them yet and they’re not in the house I can keep myself from testing at 3dpt πŸ˜† It is hard to see a lot of girls in my transfer groups (Facebook groups of GC’s who all transfer in the same few months) getting squinters (very light positives) at 3dpt. It’s tempting to want to see if I get one. I want to wait until 6dpt at the very least. Once again I won’t be sharing the results here, but we’ll all find out in 8 days if this little one kept growing 🀞🏼🀞🏼
