7dp5dt (beta day)...

HCG<1

I spent the last two days crying pretty much non-stop. I am still crying today but not as much. Having a test of less than one means they never even implanted even a little. I will be doing an FET, hopefully natural except for estrogen and progesterone. I also want to do it next cycle so if I stay on the PIO a few more nights I can hopefully push my cycle back a bit so I will be ovulating the first week of January instead of the last week of December. We shall see if it works. I currently have a heating pad glued to my ass to keep the pain down, I am about to add Margarita's to the mix and it should improve even more.

So I had been doing fine with the PIO shots. I was able to use the 25 g needle which helped and it had been fine. I have lumps in my hips but the pain has been minimal. If I press down on the area it is a bit sore but otherwise OK. I alternated sides each night and had my calendar marked which side to do so I would not forget.

Last night I did my right side, no problems. This morning I woke up crippled on my left side. The lumps seem to have congealed together in the night somehow and I cannot manage to walk without this strange limp/hitch in my get-up thing. I am in a LOT of pain and it makes no sense. I used a heated rice bag this morning but it still is just killing me.

I would say that I am lucky then that my HCG came back <1 and I can stop the shots but even that isn't happening.

9 om's.:

I am so sorry. I can only imagine how disappointed you are and I hope you give yourself the space to grieve and heal.

As for the PIO, I found that icing beforehand helped, as did rubbing it after. I also found it hurt more on my right side than on my left (weird).

I hope you're able to find some sunshine soon.

Margarita's are also on our agenda this weekend; I'll be thinking of you the entire time I indulge. And I'll just pretend your 'strange limp/hitch in your get-up thing' is just your pimp walk. I'm also trying to delay the flow, by giving my lining a stern talking to. I think your method will work better. I hope your okay and have found some reasons to smile today...if not maybe tomorrow.

P.S. I'm making HYO (heat your own rice bags as my x-mas gifts.

P.S.S. Can you tell I'm trying to cheer you up?

I'm so sorry. Hope the heating pad helps the soreness from the shots.

I am so, so sorry. I hope that the FET is the thing that does it for you. Hope that spending some time with Bliss will make the hurt go away a little. {{{HUGS}}}

I am so sorry, Bleu. The pain in your hip seems like salt on the wound. I'm just sending good thoughts this weekend.
