Default 8 Days Pt

Hi, this is my first time on the forum. I am 8 days PT. I had a rough weekend. I became very sick the evening of day two on bed rest. This has scared me a little. I have been worried about my embies. We put in two 8 cell and this is our first cycle. I have never had so much anxiety in my life. I had my first progesterone test on Thursday it was 29 so they have me up to 1 1/2 cc of progesterone oil each night. I have my pregnancy test on Wed.
I have also had some cramping. Is this normal? I also wondered if anyone knows how quickly the embies implant?

Thank you for any advice you can give me. Being a first timer is a little scary.

Alicia

Hi Alicia and Welcome! When you say you got sick, what exactly do you mean...a cold, stomach cramps? If you got a cold, I wouldn't worry. If it's stomach cramps, you may be experiencing hyperstimulation. If the symptoms are gone then you're probably fine. The cramps you are experiencing now could be from the progesterone. It could also be implantation cramping
 
It's quite normal to have cramping in the 2 week wait. A progesterone level of 29 is fine. My clinic likes it to be at least 30 at 5 days post transfer. The embryos implant a few days after the procedure.

We can all empathize with your anxiety. Just relax.

Good luck on Wednesday!!!

Glinda, my sickness was throwing up, and I have had severe constipation. The Dr. said my left ovary was so big that it was causing me constipation problems. He also said the progesterone can cause this problem. I have been worried that the throwing up may have caused the embryos not to be able to implant. I feel like a crazy person worrying so much, but as you know the quest to have a baby is anything but normal.

Thank you for writing me. It is nice to hear from people who understand.

Alicia

I threw up the night of the transfer due to something I ate. I thought for sure if there were any embryos getting ready to snuggle into my lining, I had dislodged them. They implanted.

Progesterone supplements and pre-natal vitamins cause constipation.

If you weren't feeling like a crazy person then I would think you weren't normal
