It's officially that time!!!! It's the time we can't wait for, yet the time we dread. It's the moment of truth. Did the transfer work or did it fail? I guess we'll know soon enough.
Belle and I had originally planned to start testing at home tomorrow (Tuesday). We figured that would be a great start date without starting too early. Well that plan didn't work out so well...
Late last week I was feeling great! I was feeling slightly crampy and totally had no doubt in my mind that the transfer had worked. Then something changed Saturday afternoon. The crampiness stopped. I kept thinking it might come back, but it didn't and that worried me. Now it's been awhile since I've been in a two week wait to test (about 2-1/2 years), and I completely forgot how crazy it makes you. You question everything you did. You question everything you didn't do. You question every twinge, ache, and symptom.
That being said, I caved. I couldn't wait it out till the Tuesday goal and I tested yesterday (Sunday). Negative. And I tested again today. Negative. Strangely it makes me feel more calm to test. At least I know one way or the other for that particular day. I haven't lost hope. It's still early and we still have time to get that big fat positive! Tomorrow I have a hormone level check, then we have our beta blood pregnancy test next Tuesday.
I've got everything crossed and hoping this works out for Belle and Adam. I don't want to let them down!!!!
