Life with Coco and Gigi... and Jack-Jack too!

Life as a Mom, A Homesteader, A Blogger and A Wife.


So today marks the first day that the panic has truly set in of what if this doesn't work. I have some cramps (and I know you can have af-like cramps with a BFP) and it is freaking me out. I know it is too early to know anything since it's only 4dp3dt, but I can't help it. Up til now I have been almost positive that this was going to work. I just hate letting any negative thoughts seep into my consciousness right now. I will work hard today to get rid of them. I think the pressure might be getting to me...

Oh, and one of my faithful readers posted about Days of Our Lives. OMG, I was watching it while on day 3 of bed rest laughing how Mimi was out on the town the night of her transfer. LOL!!!

One more thing, I only have minimal fluid build up, so just keep hydrated and I should be fine!

First of all -- I'm so glad to hear that the fluid is minimal. Keep slugging your water/gatorade and flush that right out of your system.

Second of all -- it's perfectly normal to panic about something this substantial not working out. I'd think there was something wrong if you didn't have some feelings and/or thoughts of doubt. You guys have put so much into this journey and IVF is a huge step to be involved with. Just try, try, try not to discount every little twinge and pull that you feel. If those babies are burrowing in you're going to feel that. You have 3 little beings trying to make your body their home. It's perfectly natural for your body to react. IMO, pregnancy is such an adverse thing for our bodies to endure. It has fought all its life to thwart intruders and kee us safe, now it needs to completely forego its defense mechanisms and do whatever it can to nurture this foreign "body" it's carrying.

I know that it's hard not to worry. Try to let all of us do the worrying and you just remember that right now you have 3 babies inside of you!

I totally agree with Mandy Kate. I think it wouldn't be normal not to panic but like you said, just try to keep positive thoughts, that's all you have a this time. Oh my, I can't even imagine how long your 2ww is this time around.

Glad to hear about the fluid.

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
