Blah.

I started the Estrace doses yesterday 2mg 2 times day. One of the side effects is nausea and vomiting-- and guess who's been nauseous and on the verge of vomiting for the last 24+ hours. I'm not really complaining per say- just wasn't expecting it. At first I thought I had succumbed to the stomach bug that seems to be making rounds, but I thought that was strange since I really haven't seen much of the outside world. 

Then the feeling past --and then came back with a vengeance this morning- right after I took my Estrace. I went in for my Estradial level check today and sure enough I am probably dealing with the side effects of the Estrace and my body should adjust to the hormones in time. 

Yesterday was interesting- the lab called and told us about our embryos that were frozen. It was the very nice lady who called and she said that two were frozen on transfer day and two more were frozen yesterday. 

Wait. What. 

The Stick told us there were only 4 left and they were waiting until yesterday to freeze whatever wasn't transferred. 

So I repeat- what? What in the what? 

She told me that what he meant to say was that 2 were being frozen after transfer and they were going to watch 2 more and see if they would be able to freeze them the next day. 

Which they did. 

I was going to go bonkers on the phone. After all I was on the verge of throwing up and annoyed with this oversight. But instead I chose to be thankful. 

Thankful that there were more --not less. Even if I have no idea how someone can look over something like that. 

Thankful that God was watching over our embryos and that we now have 4 frozen plus the 2 that are hopefully nestling in tight. 

So thats really all here. Some have asked when I plan to test and like normal- I don't know. I may not test at all and just wait for my Beta or I may just test on a whim if I get a feeling. 

I also think that I won't be announcing my Beta right away on the blog no matter what the outcome- I think I will wait the weekend.. but yea that could totally change too. 

I'm going to eat some ginger and hope the current wave of nausea passes and fill out some cards and goodies to send to some of my lovies <3 

Hope today finds you well!

  5. So glad you have more embies, but ugh - kind of irresponsible of them to mess up that news! I mean, it impacted your decision to transfer two! Oh well, I'm glad you have more, that's all that matters. Hope your nausea passes really soon!

  9. Hoping the nausea becomes morning sickness rather than from the meds. Much happier reason in my book.

  10. I don't know if you know, but apparently Estrace can be taken vaginally if the side effects get out of hand. So if it doesn't clear up, maybe you could talk to your doctor about it? I didn't have any symptoms from it—just a lot of soreness in my uterus and boobs from the Crinone.

    Also I am SO PSYCHED you have two more surviving embies!! I hope they speak to that awful other guy who gave you misinformation. Ugh.

    1. I have heard that, but I am already taking the Crinonine Vaginally so I don't know that I want to add anything else through that route. Things seem to be improving daily with the nausea so Im hopeful I am adjusting to it. I hope they talk to the Stick too!

  12. I'm so sorry you've felt so sick! I've been on Estrace (orally) 3x a day for 3 weeks, but haven't had any side effects. Funny how people can respond so differently.

    So glad to hear you've got for frosties!

    1. It is so crazy how some people handle things so very differently. I think Im starting to adjust to it- today was a much better start then the last two days for sure!

  13. Sorry to hear you are feeling sick. I hope it gets better soon. Hoping even more that all of this means pregnancy, soon if not already! That's a bit unsettling about your embryos. They're not the kind of thing you want people messing around with, so I can see why you were freaked out. on the other hand, +2 sounds wonderful!

    1. I hope so too :) Im trying not to read too much into it and just think of it as a side effect- but maybe its more than that too is surely crossing my mind!
