1dp6dt and my super bladder

Obviously I have nothing in the way of symptoms yet and don't expect to feel for quite some time even if I do get pregnant. I am sort of surprised that my breasts aren't really sore from all the progesterone I'm on (1 cc of PIO, and 2 suppositories a day). My ass however, does hurt. I've got a huge welt on my right hip that is really bothering me. I'll have to use my left side for a couple of days I think.

The transfer went very smoothly. We transferred one sad looking de-frostie. The embryologist and RE said that the embie was perfect as it is a 1AA 6 day blast, and that the blast just looked strange because it had been dehydrated for freezing. I dunno. I supposed I can understand that. I just hope he/she is o.k and has a fighting chance at implanting. I just don't feel confident and hopeful like I did the last time.

I drank about half the required water before my acupuncture session as someone recommended in the comments of my last post (thank you so much). And I went in for the acupuncture session feeling pretty calm and relaxed. But by the time I got up from the table I had to pee. And once I went back for the transfer my bladder was ready to burst. So my RE let me empty it a little bit. Now ladies this is a difficult feat. Eliminating just a little urine. This actually happened during my last transfer so I knew that conceptually I could do it but was still scared about executing the task. Here is the trick. Pick a time (I had 5 seconds), then after the time stand up. You won't pee on yourself. I promise. I felt so much better, didn't feel the urge to pee anymore, and my bladder was still adequately full. So the lesson learned is that you don't have to drink all the water they ask you to necessarily. I drank about 18 oz of water and my nurse had said 24-50 oz. Anyway, it struck me that having a full bladder played a huge roll in trying to save Lydia and trying to get pregnant again. When they tried to get Lydia's amniotic sack back through my cervix, the on-call OB put a catheter in my urethra and filled my bladder with water. It was terribly uncomfortable. The OB and nurses were all surprised at the length of time I endured the full bladder without complaint. So maybe I've just got a super strong bladder.

Well now we wait. Beta isn't for another 8 days. But I'm just not that anxious about it. I think I'm really just getting more and more blah as I get closer to Lydia's EDD September 3rd. But I will try to send some good vibes to my little de-frostie everyday. I know that being a little more zen about things is best for my own psyche and better for de-frostie. So I'll try.

This is gonna be your cycle, I can feel it!

Wow! They let YOU go empty a little. My best offer was a I just stuck with my overfilled bladder woe. No catheters, please.

Hangin' in there with you 1dp6dt.

congrats on such a measured pee!!! :D
that does sound like a feat.
let's hope the little guy/gal hydrates well and adjusts to his/her new environment and makes it a home. :)

My thoughts are with you. Be gentle with yourself - the emotions have to be hard to navigate.

I know about that just going a little bit feat. I had an ultrasound a couple months ago and I had drank about 16oz. Then I got to the office and had to wait because they were having trouble with the lady before me. I just wanted to cry at that point. They told me I could go and count to 5. I did not think it was possible to do that but I had to try. Surprisingly I did it and felt so much better. Then I continued to wait for another 45 minutes so they let me do it again...Thank God! I went back about 10 minutes after that and they told me my bladder was still way full. I really wish they could find a better way to do that.

I will be sending nothing but positive thoughts your way. Grow embie grow!

You have to express more your opinion to attract more readers, because just a video or plain text without any personal approach is not that valuable. But it is just form my point of view

I'm impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both equally
educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I'm
very happy I came across this during my search for
something relating to this.
