1dp6dt - Implantation Day?!?

After consulting Dr. Google obsessively and talking with our embryologist during transfer, it appears that today is the big day for Jack & Diane/Ben & Jerry! Will they or won't they???

I am nervous and hopeful and feeling like it is all out of our control. All the humans have played their parts and now we need a little help from God, Fate, Destiny, Mother Nature...this is truly where medicine meets miracle, the joining of the hands of God & science.

I am following instructions and staying flat on the couch. Sean spoiled me and pampered me last night and I only got up to potty and head up to bed. He had to go back to work today, but he cooked me breakfast & lunch before he left. Cheesy eggs and toast for breakfast and Ring O'Noodle soup with egg & a pb&j sandwich on whole grain for lunch. He even laid out a cheese stick, yogurt and pineapple for snacks. He is the best! He should be home early tonight and I am contemplating joining him on a trip to the grocery store to do our Easter Brunch shopping. Playing that by ear though!

In the mean time, I have spent a lot of time online, watched trashy TV - 90210 baby! - a few episodes of a Baby Story, developed my Easter Menu, made a grocery list, and talked on the phone. On the horizon, meditate and a nap, maybe a movie...it's a good life!

Symptom checker: Nothing at all. Possible pulling on the right side, but I could be making that up:) Already been on the progesterone for a week, so pretty accustomed to those side effects, which are mild at this point.

Oh please, oh please let this be the day...

7 days until Beta!

Sounds all too familiar! It was only like a month ago that I was doing all the same things. And loving it just as much. I really really hope it works for you. That will give me some hope that my FET will work in a couple months!

Jack & Diane/Ben and Jerry are a little bit of a mouthfull so let's celebrity-ize their names like they do with the rich and famous to make it easier on you - how about Jackane or Benerry? You DH is a real sweetie for doing all of those things for you and taking such good care of you. Glad to hear you've had a good day and keep taking it easy!

OHHH! Good luck! I've got everything crossed for you!

Crossed fingers for Jack & Diane! :)

LOTS of sticky baby dust to you sweetie! I am so excited for you. I have a friend that is 16dp5dt and she hasn't had any symptoms at all- and her hcg keeps rising. :)

Good luck!!

Sounds like you are enjoying your bedrest. Sean is a great hubby.

Good luck getting through the rest of your couch-rest!! I love that you have a snack all laid out and waiting for you. :)

I love the names Ben and Jerry! My favorite flavor--sadly--is in the graveyard. But there are still plenty of delicious ones to behold.

I think it's awesome you had a hatched blast to transfer! Wishing you only the best!

I am pretty sure that 2dp5dt was my implantation day. And that is where you are(7), Keep relaxing and think calm, sticky thoughts.

Bee said...

I am hoping and praying for you. I agree that it's all out of the humans hands now.

Come on!!!

Hey Emily...

THanks for dropping by my side. Appreciate it. By the way, hang in there okay. I am crossing my fingers and toes for you. Rest well. Let the hubby do everything for you now...

Think positive thoughts okay.

Phoebe said...

Congrats on a great transfer! I realized on bedrest that TV absolutely rots! I probably won't be checking in too much until your beta. It will be too agonizing for me. Let me just say in advance that I feel your pain. Try not to make yourself too crazy!!

meinsideout said...

I am so excited for you!!! I really hope this is it E - and your dh sounds like a dream!!

Lisa said...

I'll join you in that prayer - oh please, oh please let this be the day!!! Let those babies be snuggling right in for a good long stay!!

And, yea for Sean!!

I transferred 3 6 day blasts yesterday and stumbled on your post when I googled "1dp6dt". This is my third try with IVF/FET.

Your posts are making me so happy. I'll definitely be back!
