worth a thousand words? (updated)



i was wondering how they did it...now i know!

i'm headed back tomorrow to see if enough fluid came back to warrant a repeat culdocentesis. i'm actually feeling alot better which is good, but also makes me nervous, since WORSENING symptoms is a sign of pregnancy whereas symptoms resolve with a bfn.

mind you, i'm still bloated as all get out, but there's no denying i feel better. alot less vomiting and diarrhea, and i don't have as nearly much fluid as before.

i never thought i'd feel so bad about feeling better.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
so, my appt this am went reasonably well, besides the 2hr wait. i've still got some free fluid in the abd, but not enough to warrant a tap. i was instructed to eat salty things and drink gatorade and take lov.enox (OUCH! there's a painful shot) for the next several weeks. they don't think the fluid will need to be drained again, but they will if i need it.

i'm 6dp3dt and starting to want to pee on things. but i'm also trying my best to hold off the madness, because once it starts all i can think about is peeing on sticks. they said getting better doesn't mean the cycle didn't work, but i also wonder if they say that to everyone. ahh, mindgames of the 2ww. so lovely.

i forgot to mention; the other embryos did not make it to freeze. they were either in the morula (pre-blast) stage on day 5 so the clinic did not keep them, or they arrested at morula stage on day 5. not sure which.

Oh my goodnesss! I always wondered too! I can't believe all you have to go through, in addition to what you've already gone through.

Hopefully the "better" symptoms are just because yours were so severe, but not indicative of a BFN... I really want to see this work for you!!! Hang in there!

Gosh...I never thought I wish for someone to feel worse...but...here goes ;)

Seriously though, hope you don't need any more of that draining AND you get your nice big positive out of all this

I am certainly hoping that the draining is over and a BFP is right around the corner.

Ok, that pic scares me! I hope you can avoid that needle!

Positive thoughts for testing time.
