3dp5dt: Magic Fortune Ball Says

I'm totally pregnant, right?  I know I've done this kind of crap before but my fortune telling i-phone app wouldn't lie to me like the Internet fortune teller did, would it?  Every single question I have asked it in the past 24 hours has given me positive results.  Who needs pee sticks?  In fact, the only question that didn't come back positive was "will I get a positive test on Friday?"  The app said "it is too early to say."  Otherwise it tells me I am pregnant with healthy twins and at least one of them is a boy.

I am down four pound today, hallelujah!  Today is the first day I didn't have to bind my belly fat.  I'm hoping my super duper bloat is gone for a while.  I woke up in the middle of the night thinking it was almost time to wake up for the day.  I had to pee SO bad but I still wanted an extra hour of sleep.  After fighting it for a what seemed like an hour I finally got up to relieve myself and realized it was only 4:30 a.m. and despite the fact that I peed directly before bed at 10:30 p.m.  Of course I caught some of it in a cup (insane pee marathon in progress) and noticed it was very diluted.  Still the Wondfo hpt gave me a very very faint line (see last night's post, it looks pretty much the same).

Finally wake up for the day at 8:30 (late!) and pee again in a cup.  It's darker now with the same super duper faint line.  Oh hcg trigger, why do you taunt me?

And in case any pee-crazy IVFers are reading this, I found this web site that gives the following instructions on testing at home after IVF:

When to Start HPTs During the Two Week Wait (2WW)
For a 3-day transfer, don't POAS (pee on a stick) until 6 days after transfer.
For a 5-day transfer, don't POAS until 4 days after transfer.

So that means I can start testing (or keep testing rather) tomorrow because, after all, someone on the Internet said I could!  You want science?  I got your science right here (from more reputable web site):

5-Day Transfer

Days Past
Transfer (DPT)
Embryo Development
OneThe blastocyst begins to hatch out of its shell
TwoThe blastocyst continues to hatch out of its shell and begins to attach itself to the uterus
ThreeThe blastocyst attaches deeper into the uterine lining, beginning implantation
FourImplantation continues
FiveImplantation is complete, cells that will eventually become the placenta and fetus have begun to develop
SixHuman chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) starts to enter the blood stream
SevenFetal development continues and hCG continues to be secreted
EightFetal development continues and hCG continues to be secreted
NineLevels of hCG are now high enough to detect a pregnancy

I sort of want to call bull on this chart because I've seen forum postings where women claim to have gotten BFPs four days after a five day transfer, but I'm no doctor.

Either way, I only have a week until my beta and maybe less until a hpt shows a positive.  Fingers crossed.

No symptoms except peeing a lot.
