BUT, the nurse told me there will be no pool time for me in the next 11 days. Don't get me wrong, I will most definitely follow orders in the chances that this works! But oooooh it really does hurt. Especially, because the pool is like my zen place on the weekends and it's something I love to do. I kind of don't understand the pool thing though. Are they afraid of chlorine getting up into my uterus? I get the point of no hot baths or hot tubs...but a pool? Hmmm. Oh well. I've accepted it and now I'm moving on. Just had to share my thoughts.
I found a web site that lists what (is supposed to happen) on the days following a 5 day transfer. Thought it was pretty cool....
|One||The blastocyst begins to hatch out of its shell|
|Two||The blastocyst continues to hatch out of its shell and begins to attach itself to the uterus|
|Three||The blastocyst attaches deeper into the uterine lining, beginning implantation|
|Five||Implantation is complete, cells that will eventually become the placenta and fetus have begun to develop|
|Six||Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) starts to enter the blood stream|
|Seven||Fetal development continues and hCG continues to be secreted|
|Eight||Fetal development continues and hCG continues to be secreted|
|Nine||Levels of hCG are now high enough to detect a pregnancy|
