The Two Week Wait

In five days I will go in for my blood test to find out if I'm pregnant. We will officialy find out if any of our three little embies, that I already love, decided to stay around for awhile, hopefully for nine months. Last week went very quickly for me; after my little embies were placed into me on Wednesday I rested the rest of the week. Slept a lot, read some novels, watched some movies. I told myself the most important job in the world right now was to carry these little babies. I tried to imagine them sticking, and growing. I'm not sure if it helped but I hope it did. Monday I returned to work, but I'm so easily distracted. I can't imagine why? My boobs hurt as well as my butt (from the progesterone shots I'm assuming), I'm tired and hungry, but I'm sure it's to early for symptoms. Sigh. I can't believe how much I want to be a mother and how much I want these little babies to make it. I'm really torn about testing early. I thought I would take a home pregnancy test this weekend but I'm not sure if it's a good idea with Sunday being Mother's Day. I have already agreed to go to brunch with my mom and family for Mother's day. I love my mom and really want her to have a good day. If the test is negative it will be extremely difficult for me to put on a happy face and enjoy the day with her. My mom also suffered with IF so she has been extremely supportive about my journey. I know she has been praying for a miracle for us and wouldn't like anything more then to be a grandmother. C. thinks I should just wait until Monday, go have the blood test and we will know for sure. But the wait is killing me. Do most of you test at home early?

  1. So glad your first week went by quickly. But the second is the WORST! I have been a horrible tester in the past, and I don't recommend it at all. It's a horrible rollercoaster to be on - if you can hold off, it would be great. At the very least, try to hold off until Monday morning if you don't want to find out via the blood test. And don't test on Mother's Day. For your mother's sake, and for yours. Just enjoy the day, thinking about next year and your new baby... Everything's crossed for you!

  2. I never test at home. When I stress about things, it actually pushes my period back, and then it gives me false hope. I just wait for pregnancy symptoms and hope for the best. But you do whatever makes you feel better!!! I am hoping for you... I hope you get what you want (or one more than you wanted? :) ) in five days...and in nine months. Good luck!!!

  3. Hey Sandy! I always POAS but realized last night that this is the first time I'm kind of afraid to do so. I would LOVE the beautiful symbolism of getting my first faint line on a POAS on Mother's Day, and I thought that it would be so early that I could easily just talk myself out of any depression that a negative would cause...as it would only be 10-11dpo...too early, clearly. But I'm not sure. This is just such a big cycle for us...I'm not sure I want to tempt fate this time. Mother's Day is tough enough. So...I realize this comment is no help at all, but I guess I'm just saying I was always in the "test early to avoid surprises" camp, and now am in the "do what is in your heart" camp. Best of luck!

  5. So true that we love our little embies from the moment they're made :) It's hard to know whether to POAS... but I think I'll be waiting longer next time... I didn't deal with all the negatives too well last time. Great that you've got 3 top quality embies back in... that increases your chances significantly :)) FXd for you and thinking of you during your 2WW xoxo
