IVF#2 2dp5dt: Conquering the TWW

Hello everyone! Today is 2pd5dt. I’m not symptom spotting as I feel it’s way too early for that. I am treating my body as if it is already pregnant. I’m making sure that I give my body nutrients that will assist in contributing to the babies nutrition. I’m also coming up with ways to beat the notorious two week wait. Today hasn't been so bad.

I did read a few blogs of other #TTC sisters who have gone through there before me.  Most received their #BFP at some stage in their journey.  A few didn't at all.  I read not to compare but because I genuinely enjoy walking the journey with them and also because it keeps me distracted.

Today, I was supposed to have received a call from my RE's office informing S. and I if there were any remaining embryos for freeze.  On the transfer day, our doctor informed me that we had 8 embryos dividing.  We transferred two.  That left us with six.  I was hoping to hear something today about how they've progressed.  So far...nothing.

This happened during our last cycle as well.  The office ended up waiting a full day to see if the embryos would continue dividing.  They didn't.  They all arrested and were discarded.  We received our BFN a few days later and are now in this cycle.  I can't help but wonder if history is repeating itself.  There is one exception.  I received an email from the cryopreservation lab asking what we would like to do with embryos.  But there was no mention of any having been preserved.  I don't know if that is a new protocol as we have already signed wishes for what we would want to have done if any survived or if we actually have some snow babies.  I'll be calling tomorrow for sure.

So that's one way to keep me focused off testing and symptom checking and focusing instead on other things.  It should be a bit easier than usual.  I have a lot to keep me occupied during this TWW. (See list below). I know my little ones will be on my mind more and more every day, but I’m determined to make everything beautiful for them and myself. No stress at all!
