Today is two days past a 6 day embryo transfer, for those unfamiliar with that acronym ;) That's about 8 days post ovulation with a regular cycle. 

It's my last day of bed rest, WOOHOO!!!!! I go crazy just sitting around. I typically go, go, go so these past three days have been tough. But I made it and I hope it helped our embryo implant. 

It's been a super hot week, in the high 90's and 100's, so I've been sitting in the air, working and watching movies. And missing my little man so much. He cries for me and it breaks my heart. Nick has been wonderful and helping out so much. I am so thankful for him, for my parents for being so encouraging and positive and my Dad bringing me lunch, and for my sister and friends checking in on me every day to see how I'm doing. I just feel so loved and so lucky. I can't thank everyone enough.

My mind messes with me constantly. I start daydreaming about being pregnant again and then I get very emotional thinking that this isn't going to work. I'm not reading into any symptoms or feelings because I know they will just mess with me more. 

Only time will tell.



  1. Glad you made it through bed rest. It's hard to imagine that with a LO. For me, my ET will be around June 8th and I'm just looking forward to being off work haha. FX for good news next week for you!

  2. I hope you had a good weekend off bed rest! My doctors never prescribed bed rest after the transfer--just 15 minutes of lying down immediately after. I was always afraid to do anything too strenuous the first couple of days, though. Anyway, I'm glad you had lots of help, and that it's over! Happy 5dp6dt =) I hope your little girl is safe and sound and growing away in there!

  3. That would be (and will be) tough with a toddler! Grateful you have so many helpful & loving hands to take care of you :) I'm sure G loves having his mama "back".

  4. Hi, Mama! I've been refreshing your blog like crazy and just want you to know I'm thinking about you! Xo

  5. I'm really hoping for great results today and that you are all doing well. :) Kristin
