- My areolas are sore. Not the entire breast, no just the nipple area.
- I've been getting headaches. Not too bad, just one bad one so far.
- Increased nighttime urination.
- Being extra tired.
This morning after awakening from a nightmare, just my fears of losing my spouse to another woman that is fertile (I think we've all had this type of nightmare), I spoke with J about Hope. He told me he likes calling the embaby Hope and in Spanish Hope is Esperanza. Hmm, wasn't Esperanza the name of the housekeeper that the character Gaylord Focker had an affair with? Well anyway Hope in Slavic is Nadiya. I think I rather like that one. So I'll be calling this embaby by its name in different languages just to keep things interesting I think. If you know of Hope in different languages and want to give me the name let me know.
In other news, I'll be glad when the swelling in my ovaries goes down. I can only sleep in one position right now and its on my back. I try to roll to either side and my ovaries complain.
My uterus is feeling better today. Yesterday morning and afternoon it felt as though I had been punched in the uterus from the inside. The transfer did not go smoothly but I think I already mentioned the two different speculums having to be used because he couldn't get me opened properly with the first one no matter what position he tried with it. The second one was longer. Then began the swabbing with the gauze 2 x 2's and the other gear to clean off the excess mucus. Lovely the Endometrin made my inside messy. Then the catheter bent and it shouldn't have. Dr.C. didn't have a problem with the mock transfer or the first IVF. Dr.B. has only ever wanded me so he didn't know the route I guess.
I did feel some twinges of pain last night before bed. It felt more like pinches but a bit sharper, most likely it was the uterus getting cranky with me. With luck I'll feel something similar over the next few days or week as Hope burrows deep into the uterine lining.
I've asked J to sign back in off leave today as he will have the weekend off. No sense in wasting leave days that we might need later on for a vacation or delivery or possible...well I don't want to say it. He is taking care of me and I'm not going to leave the house for another day.
I did take a warm bath last night and used my brand new candy thermometer that I've had for two years and never took out of the package. So I made sure the bath was about 90 degrees for water temp. My legs still pinkened so I'm guessing I'm just susceptible to cold and heat is all.
I'm being as careful as possible without over worrying. I don't want to add guilt feelings to the stress which would make the stress worse. I am meditating and last night my blood pressure was a reasonable 124/75. So that means that the Circle + Bloom is helping.
