Another Two Week Wait
I am 3 DPO, following my HCG trigger injection on Wednesday. The shot wasn’t a big deal. I was anxious about it, but in the end, I barely felt it. We followed our instructions about timed intercourse very carefully and now I’m back on prometrium to keep my progesterone level up. I will go in for bloodwork next week to check the level. Thursday morning, my OPK was VERY positive. And yes, I did take a pregnancy test as well! I just couldn’t help myself and it somehow felt like a good omen to see those two pink lines! Hopefully it’s a preview!
We’ve also been making a real effort to “enjoy” trying this month. It can really become work or a chore when you have been TTC for so long. The other night, I’d had a stressful day and my son had been very fussy, but it was important that we babydance, since we were still in the first 48 hours after the trigger shot. My husband and I cuddled in bed for a bit and I jokingly asked him if he’d had a talk with his “swimmers”. He assured me he did, and that they’d held a pep rally for the occasion. Just the mental picture of little cheerleader sperms and a crowd of sperm waving banners and shouting into megaphones sent me into fits of giggles! It was several minutes later and a few failed attempts before I was able to compose myself! I know that if we do conceive this cycle, I’ll be able to look back on our efforts this month and laugh!
I’m more optimistic this month than I have been in a while. Trying something new, no matter how large or small, seems to help. I’m very hopeful that this will be our month!
I will be due for my period around the 25-26th of January. My son turns 3 years old on the 28th, so I’m hopeful that by then we may have more than one thing to celebrate!
Lots of baby dust to all!
