New ways to Combat the 2ww

Yes, I have discovered new (not improved) ways to pass the 2ww with *minimal baby related obsessive thoughts.

I've been sick. Real sick. Puking, crying, aching kinda sick. I began feeling unwell Friday evening about 12 hours after the transfer (which went swimmingly) and steadily declined into sickville from there. I assumed I had food poisoning. Or the 2ww plague. I was down for the count. I only moved to put my head in a bucket, take a sip of water or submerge myself in a warm bath. I stayed in bed until Sunday morning when we got a phonecall from P's father. I listened to his voice coming from the answer machine in the next room. He was distressed. Could we come over straight away, something was wrong with P's Mother. He thinks she may have had a stroke.
That word had me sitting bolt upright. Did he just say Stroke? I shook P awake & relayed what I just heard & we flew into auto-pilot.
We got her to the hospital, it was and still is very scary. She didn't have a stroke but has swelling on the brain which has affected her speech, her communication, her vision. She didn't know who I was. My MIL is a very brave patient. She has had more than her fair share of health issues over the past decade including cancer & it appears the chemo is having lingering effects on her body, hence this latest ordeal. We saw a tiny improvement last night. She recognised P & my FIL. She even asked about our IVF which was a remarkable & hopeful sign of her recovery. They are treating the swelling with steroids & we pray that she makes a speedy, full recovery.

While we were in the emergency room with P's Mum the nurse noticed me green & dry wretching in the corner. She took pity on me & suggested I go register with Triage & she could give me a needle to help with my nausea. I did that. After relaying my IVF history together with my 3 day puke-a-thon they took all my vitals & within 15 minutes......I was laid flat out 4 beds down from my MIL. Turns out I had a raging Urinary Tract Infection and I needed antibotics immediately. I got treated for my vomiting as well, spent about 5 hours on a drip. They were very mindful of my FET. It was bizarre. Telling and re-telling staff that I came to be a patient due to the fact that I was in emergency with my sick MIL. Ironic but lucky for me.

After many blood & urnine tests one doctor casually walked into my curtained sick room & announced "I ordered a Beta HCG and it came back 6. This infection should not affect the outcome of your IVF. I don't know alot about IVF."

Well, d'uh! You sure don't! Telling an IVF patient that she had a HCG reading of 6 at 2dp5dt and expect her to keep her head together! I know nothing about Beta, nothing about HCG. I was miles from the internet, hooked up to an IV the emergency room...wildly calculating that a zero HCG would suck, but a 6? is that good? Is that anything? Jay-sus! someone unhook me! I gotta go google!

I have since learned that with HCG beta anything under 5 is negative.
6 to 25 is unequivocal. Over 25 is positive.
At this stage I'll take unequivocal.......and my MIL back on her feet. Prayers welcome (even heathens)

How about a little humour to lighten this awful post? You got it.
Imagine if you will, Mrs Negative, laid out in a hospital bed, white hospital gown agape, looking like someone who just spent 3 days vomiting, hair everywhere...including inch long hairs on her winter legs. Imagine now, a gorgeous, young male nurse...ridiculously cute busily sticking ECG tabs onto said hairy legs, Mrs Negative, then dry heaving AND farting in unison. It really happened. I looked at P who was standing at the end of my sick bed & in a mortified squeak I said "Why did I have to do that?" P could offer no explaination. And Mr Drop-Dead-Gorgeous Nurse grabbed a sick bag, thrust it under my chin an announced "Now, don't you worry about us! We've seen & heard it all before"
Oh, the shame. But what TOP blogging material! In hindsight...definately worth the humiliation.

Note: *minimal baby related obsessive thoughts translation:100 per hour as opposed to 1000 per hour. And the desire to POAS....don't even talk about it.


Blogger Pamplemousse said...

You did a FET, didn't you? The only HCG in your body is the HCG coming from an implanting embryo. Looks like you are ever so slightly pregnant!

Blogger Krista said...

And ever so slightly pregnant is exactly what you would want at 2 days post 5 day transfer. If theoretical HCG is theoretically doubling every 48 hours that would give you a beta of between 192 and 384 on beta day (depending on what day you test). I am crossing my fingers that this is exactly the result. Oh and by the way, you should be safe to pee on an early pregnancy test (one that measure 25 units) by day 7/8 if that beta number doubles every 48 hours.

Blogger Winnifred said...

what a story!!

what day are you officially testing? Sending happy ++ thoughts your way!

and thanks for the laugh at the bottom - i laughed out loud in my cubicle!!

Blogger Hope548 said...

I've got to say that is pretty funny! I hope both you and your MIL are recovering nicely. It reminds me of being in the hospital for my lap surgery in May. I was nauseous from the anesthesia. I had eaten some ice chips and sat up to try to make it to the bathroom. I dry-heaved and made a sound like a seal. It didn't feel too funny at the time, but we laugh about it now. Take care!

Blogger Mellie said...

Oh Mony, I'm so sorry that you're going through this. But you're right about the blog material - and just think what a great story it'll make when that embryo is your first born.

Wishing your MIL a full, speedy recovery and you a HCG doubling every day.

Blogger Just another Jenny said...

Oh I would kill a doctor for telling me I had a HCG of 6 2 days after transfer. That would put my obsessive thoughts to the point of insanity. If you POAS, you must share.
I am crossing everything for you. I have dubbed July as FET month. All of my fellow FET girls will have success this month, I am sure of it. I'll be a bit behind you in the 2ww so I'll need your good news to drag me through it (cause it's all about me ya know!).
I am sorry about your MIL, it sounds like she has been through quite a bit.

Blogger Lut C. said...

My, you've had some eventful days! Not to say absolute madness!

I hope your MIL keeps improving steadily.
And I hope you do too.

And don't get me started on the doc with his HCG test. UGH!
Crossing my fingers for you...

Blogger serenity said...

Wow. Your past couple of days have been MADNESS.

And I second (and third) Jenny. If you POAS, you must share. And I believe that it will be good news.

*crossing everything I've got*

Blogger Pixxiee said...

Oh my what a drama! I am so glad you ended up in the hospital and got the care you needed, even if it was by accident!

I really hope the 6 grows and grows into a good thing for you.

Love the fart! Will be watching to see how you get on...

Blogger heleen said...

wow what an ordeal! I hope you and your mil will get better soon. And beta of 6 that's probably as good as it gets at this stage. `Exciting times babe, hang in there!

Blogger LabiaLady said...

WTF???? A beta of 6... what are you supposed to do with that information... except go CRAZY!

Always love a good fart joke.. lol!

Blogger Shazz said...

Hope your MIL inproves and ya poor thing, so hope your feeling better. I have it crossed for you, and for the average embie to normally emplant between day 6 to 10 that is one super embie!!

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Oh Mony, how scary! I hope full recovery for your MIL.

A beta of 6 at 2 days post transfer is not anything to scoff at. I think it's lovely that a beta was there. That HCG only confirms one thing -- PUPO.

Blogger Emma B. said...

For 7dpo, a beta of 6 sounds pretty good to me! Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Blogger Courtney said...

Goodness sakes!!!!! It sounds like you definately helped the 2ww pass a little more interestingly! Gracious! I hope you are completely recovered now. When do you test? I am in the 2ww myself. It is horrible waiting again and again!

I hope you get the BFP!!!
