**New** Progesterone Suppository (in the PM before bed)
Progesterone injection (in the PM)
The question is "How do I feel?"
I wish I knew the answer to that. How DO I feel? Is that a twinge? Is that a pain? Is that bloating or fullness I'm feeling? Is that a baby in there? Is it normal for my back to hurt? Seems like it should be, considering I've been on my back 90% of the time since transfer.
I've somehow got to keep from running myself absolutely insane between now and next week. One minute, I am so positive. The next minute, I'm totally opposite of positive. Then, I regret not being positive. Keith, on the other hand, is completely positive it has worked. I am being way too hyper-sensitive about every little ache, pain, twinge, and hiccup. I sneezed for the first time a minute ago, and this image came into my head of the baby being jarred to the point of unattaching. Insane, I know.
Meanwhile, it is 10:00 AM on Saturday, and I am not out of bed yet. Keith's at work, it's way too cold, and what do I have to do anyway besides laundry? I got up long enough to walk the girls and make coffee and then back to bed we went. I really need to go in to the office and work some either today or tomorrow, but I may not. My instructions were modified bedrest for the first 24 hours. Sit or lay with brief breaks to go to the bathroom or eat. No driving, but riding home in the car would be fine. My 24 hours were up yesterday at 3 pm. My restrictions until after the pregnancy tests are no heavy lifting of anything over 10 lbs, no exercise, and no sex. All Mom wants me to do is sit still and quiet with my hands in my lap until next week. I'm to the point where I feel like doing just that.
