It's Friday. That means it's day 3 of the 2ww and day 7 of the PIO shots. They are a pain in the ass....literally. V and I can't figure out what's changed, but the shots hurt these last few mornings, although I'm not bruising. Ah well, I'll continue to grin and bear it. What I have found is that if I warm the vial first it definitely flows a bit faster in the filling of the syringe. Today, I ran very hot water into the bathroom sink, put in the stopper and filled it just high enough for the vial of PIO to sit in it. While it sat there I did the Fragmin shot. I'm getting lovely bruising on my belly from that shot. After I was done with the Fragmin, I prepped the syringe for the PIO and it definitely "flowed" a bit better and V. said it was a bit easier to inject as well.
I'm not feeling any effects of the PIO. Last time my boobs were sore by now, I think. I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not. I don't really feel anything except some twinges and cramping type feeling in the lower abdomen. I think it's still too early for implantation spotting. I know I'm obsessing. Who doesn't during these two weeks. I'm trying not to. V. is still being ever the watchdog and not letting me do anything minutely strenuous. We need groceries this weekend, so he'll either have to come with, or he will be unloading the car. I don't think there's anything heavy on the list though. We've got a few things on our agenda this weekend to keep my mind off things, but I'm sure I'll be obsessing.
Kami asked when I was going to POAS. Trust me I've thought about this. A lot. I have a test left over from the last cycle. I see it every morning when I take out my hair dryer. I know that I'll probably POAS the day of the beta for sure. I'd rather know that it's a negative before I got the blood test and be pleasantly surprised if it's a postive when the call come in, rather than finding out for the first time when they call. But, do I start peeing on those sticks any sooner than the 25th? Technically today is 3dp3dt since the embryos were frozen on day 3. It's too early to POAS. I think the earliest I could start would be a week today which would be 10dp3dt. I haven't asked V. what he thinks. I'm so afraid this hasn't worked, yet we both feel that this cycle was different than the last one. What do I do? Sigh.
