Moved on to DE
20 harvested, 18 fertilized, 8 keepers!
Date of transfer 2 5d blastocysts, grade A and B. Stopped IM progesterone, moved on to suppositories
Day 1 a little crampy, pressure in uterus, peeing tons, bloat
Day 2 more cramping, got worse that evening, peeing a lot, bloated, POAS BFN
Day 3 super bad cramps, like AF, no bleeding, tired now, sore boobs, more bloat
Day 4 cramps tapered off, tired, slight nausea, bigger boobs, POAS BFN, last one till beta
Day 5 feel great, tired, slight nausea, sore boobs, pee, pee, pee, lots of bloat
Day 6-8 feel great, tired, slight nausea, peeing, sore boobs, bloat
Day 9 Beta test 7 am, feeling the same. BFP!!!! Beta was 260, progesterone 70, possibly twins. Next beta in 1 week and ultrasound on January 12.
Crossing fingers for sticky embies!
Honestly I don't really feel pregnant other than some uterine pressure, slight nausea and bloating which I attributed to the progesterone I use 4xdaily.
I hope this helps, don't give up and waiting for my beta was much better than the disappointment of POAS too early.
