2dp6dt

Officially ended bed rest around dinner time last night. Decided to head to the grocery store with Sean after all. He is good, but not that good :) I would trust him with a basic list, but it was all my Easter brunch ingredients, so I thought I would spare us both the torture & just go with him. No worries, I didn't do any lifting and took it very slowly. It felt good to be up off the couch and getting the blood flowing and energy moving.

I worked for a few hours this morning & did a couple of last minute things around the house before company arrives. Sean's brother, his wife & our teenage nephew should be here within the hour. Looking forward to hanging out, eating good food, playing lots of board games and laughing! Going out for crabs tonight - YUM!

Symptom checker: still feeling some pulling on right hand side & some tiny twinges all around. Grumpy, grumpy, grumpy last night. Had vivid and strange dreams. Bad taste in my mouth all morning, but that could be the steroids - they taste nasty & powdery - blech! Overall, I feel 100% normal and probably would never notice any of this except for the over analysis that is happening 24/7.

Relaxing for a bit before the weekend is in full swing! Happy Easter everyone ~ have a lovely weekend!

6 days until beta!

SIX. FREAKING. DAYS. I can't even get over it. I mean, it'll be a long six days, but nothing like waiting 16!!! Looking forward to brunch on Sunday...

Wow beta happens a lot quicker with a FET (or at least it seems that way). Have a wonderful weekend and keep taking it easy. The overanalysis 24/7 will happen but try not to pay it too much attention (easier said than done I know).

glad you are getting out! I am keeping it all crossed!

Oh the symptom checking is driving me bananas too!! Having also already been on PIO and vivelle for so long I feel like everything is "new" so it must be meaningful. It's probably gas ;)

Ahhhh what fun. Let's hope the weekend flies by so we can get closer to beta day!

GL and hang in there!

Have a very Happy Easter. Hopefully, this time next year you'll be picking up baby food at the grocery store!

I also wanted to let you know that the low does HCG is not my trigger. It is supposed to help my follies mature. I'll take the full does HCG for my trigger when that comes time. :) Thanks for reading my blog!

Happy Easter, Emily!! I'm hoping your little Easter 'eggs' are snuggling in for the long haul.

Just 5 days left now!!

I hope that you have a wonderful Easter. It sounds like it will be fun.
I'm excited that your beta is only 6 days away. I'm thinking of you.

Happy Easter! I am very jealous that you'll be having crabs this weekend. My husband is from Maryland and introduced me to eating crabs- and I can't wait for our Maryland visits for that reason.

Go, go little blasts!

heheheh. I happen to think that grumpiness has been my only reliable symptom. Go blasts!
