Back To Work

I headed back to work today to finish off the work week. I figured I would ease myself back into the working world by working 2 days and then having the weekend off.

My worries this morning, we how people would react to my return. Some at work know what we did, some don't. I didn't know what I would say, if someone asked me how I was feeling.

On Monday, one of my close friends, let me know that there was some rumor about me needing my appendix out....Newsrooms are such gossip mills!

It wasn't too bad, although one co-worker actually came over, sat down and said, "Are you pregnant?"! I about fell out of my chair, and I think I said something like, "Uh, yeah...until proven otherwise." Weird.

I'm feeling okay, a little queasy the last 2 days, which I'm sure is from the PIO shots. Only other thing was a lower back ache most of today...hopefully the embies are getting nice and comfy!

12 days until beta.


  1. well, you ARE pregnant for now! <3

    Hopefully those embies are burrowing in nice and deep!

  2. Hoping the next 12 days fly by!

  3. Praying so hard for you and the little ones!!

  4. Thinking good thoughts for your little embryos!

  5. Good luck sweetie, I like your reply to your co-worker!
    That rumour about your appendix was weird :)
    Take care

  6. It's always so weird having to "educate" people on the way that IVF works! 'Yeah, see, the embryos have to actually implant themselves for this to work. So YES, I have two embryos in me, but they still have to do their thing. So, that probably makes me sort-of pregnant.' I think that was my speech once or twice.

    I had some back ache with the PIO and some nausea when I first started taking it, though they did abate somewhat over time. By the time I had my first beta, my main symptom of the PIO/early pregnancy was exhaustion. Since I switched to the suppositories, it's become a bit more manageable.

    Wow! Less than two weeks till you get your beta! Awesome!

  7. I am going to be sore from keeping everything crossed for the next 12 days :)

  8. Keep yourself busy so the next two weeks fly by, praying for you!

  9. Longest 12 days of your life huh? There is nothing I can say that will help the time pass faster, but I will be thinking about you and anxiously awaiting your beta results (or pictures of your sticks if you cave and feel the need to pee on something.)

  10. Thinking of you. Hope the next 12 days fly by.

  11. Oh I hope you get two babies out of this!! You deserve it so much. I hope you are feeling good... can't wait until your beta!! xox
