Today was such a long day. I had an interesting morning. I woke up ok but about 1 hour later I had excruciating abdominal pain that radiating to my rectum and perineum. It was burning and very sudden onset. It lasted 30 min then gave me a break and started up again. It was so awful. I couldn't even sit or get comfortable. I was in tears and my husband didn't know what to do for me. I thought maybe i was constipated- sorry for the TMI- but this was a major issue for me last time. So I took some natural laxatives.
I then had my acupuncture appointment at 10am. Last time they told me to take my valium after I talked with the RE--- but I wasn't relaxed at all during the last ET and was really uncomfortable. SO this time I took it earlier.
My transfer was at 12pm. I was ready to go with my full bladder just waiting for the doctor... when all of a sudden the laxatives hit me. I thought I could hold it but then realized there was no way! I was in such a panic because I didn't want to empty my bladder. I had no choice but to go to the bathroom. It was so embarrassing . The nurse told me to only empty half my bladder. I was horrified to have to tell her it wasn't my bladder that was the problem. Ugh what day. Note to self! Never take laxatives before procedure! ha ha. I had to down another bottle of water.
I asked my RE what this pain may have been that I had this Am. He said it sounded like I probably had a ruptured corpus luteum cysts.
Anyways..... Egg transfer went well after that. I transferred one 8 cell and two 3-4 cell. It was so amazing to watch.
Then I went and had another acupuncture treatment afterwards. By then the valium had really kicked in and I fell asleep. When he came in to take out the needles I though I was asleep at home. It was a good way to relax.
Now the 2 Week wait begins. I pray this time works as it is our last time trying. My husband made me laugh when he said.... what if we had triplets? I told him I would take anything I could get. The idea of twins freaked me out before! Now I just want a miracle to happen so we can have a family!
