Holy Cramping!

I've been cramping like crazy lately. It could be good or it could be bad.

Good: it could be implantation, furthering themselves into the uterus where we're hoping that they stay for a very very long time.

Bad: it could be that AF is on her way and she's trying to rid me of my right to motherhood like she has every month for the past 3.5 years.

The only good thing that I can think about at this point is the fact that I have had these cramps since a few days about 3dpt.

I am currently 9dp3dt or for those of you ferties, it means, 9 days past 3 day transfer. So technically I am 12 days past fertilization, and I take my beta in 2 days, well on Thursday. Some of you may say it's 2 days some may say 3 but whatever. It's Thursday.

I have to call the dr tomorrow to see when my apt is and if there is anything I need to do before hand. I only have enough syringes till Thursday morning so I also need to know if I need to get my refill, incase it is positive and we need to keep on our PIO shots for a while. We'll see what she says.

Thankfully the cramping only lasts around 10-20 minutes at a time and goes away for a while, then comes back. Thankfully I have yet to spot or bleed at all, and I am so very thankful for that.

Please keep your thoughts, well wishes, prayers, etc, up for us. We're still very cautiously optimistic.


  1. sending you lots of positive thoughts...and that the cramping is implantation cramping!

  2. Cramping could be a good thing... I cramped alot in my first trimester, although your situation is different than a normal "just getting prego" lol but, cramping could be your uterus growing to accomodate some babies, or baby. ;) I will keep praying you get good news in a few days. luv ya girl.

  3. Praying for you! I start our IVF journey next month.. It helps to read this, gives me a little real life hope. Praying for a great outcome Thursday and a new twin blog.


  4. Wow Stephanie! I hope it all goes exactly perfectly the way you want it to!

  5. Holy cow, beta day is tomorrow! I'm so excited for you and hoping that those cramps were your embryos digging in nice and deep for a nice long stay! I have my fingers crossed for you!
