Clutching at straws – 6dp3dt

Well another BFN for me today.  Still symptom free.

A list of symptoms I don’t have:

  • Sore breasts
  • Nausea
  • Insomnia
  • Pulling, tugging, twitching
  • Cramping

Of course these are my non-symptoms not everyone’s.

And in true pathetic style I am still clinging to a shred of hope.  My temperature is starting to drop (I suspect tomorrow’s will make or break me) but it’s still around what it would be if i was pregnant.  To clarify I will provide an overlay of my last two pregnancy charts with this months.

This month is the orange line.  I know, I’m pathetic 🙂

Of course the reason it could be around the right spot is that it started higher, but that is rational thought, which has no place whatsoever in an Ancient’s IVF blog :p

And more clinging – I found this:

1dpt ..embryo is growing and developing
2dpt… Embryo is now a blastocyst
3dpt….Blastocyst hatches out of shell on this day
4dpt.. Blastocyst attaches to a site on the uterine lining
5dpt.. Implantation begins,as the blastocyst begins to bury in the lining
6dpt.. Implantation process continues and morula buries deeper in the lining
7dpt.. Morula is completely inmplanted in the lining and has placenta cells &
fetal cells
8dpt…Placenta cells begin to secret HCG in the blood
9dpt…More HCG is produced as fetus develops
10dpt…More HCG is produced as fetus develops
11dpt…HCG levels are now high enough to be immediately detected on
HPT

5dp5dt – BFN

Well no surprises here. My HPT is stark white. I know it’s ‘early’ so I will give things two more days but my distinct lack of symptoms pretty much confirm things. For me, the pregnancy give away is insomnia. In early pregnancy I feel like I can’t switch off but I’m dead tired at the same time. This cycle I’m sleeping like a log.

I figure that I have been putting one embryo into a substandard lining for three years so why someone else doing it would make a difference I don’t know. I’ll talk to my Dr about an injects cycle and take it from there.

Ho hum.

My period came early.  Just what I need to throw me completely off schedule.  I haven’t had time to talk to my FS about not doing the flare again yet.

So I am day 2 tomorrow and still don’t know what my drug orders are.  I went for a blood test this morning as AF was nice enough to show her face first thing and ‘there is no pregnancy hormone present’.

You don’t say? 🙂
