Jet-Lag And The 2 Week Wait

I'm back from my transfer and fighting the jet-lag. It was a short visit to the US and I was just barely adjusting there and now I'm back and have to try and adjust back. Then next week on Monday I'm back to the US to see the family so I have to do it all over again. Although this time I will be going to the west coast so it's an 8 hour time difference. Not fun.

Today it's 5 days past my 5 day transfer and since I'm riddled with jet-lag I've got no idea if I'm feeling any real symptoms. I'm tired and hungry at all the wrong times which can easily be the time difference. I felt yucky after lunch today but that often happens to me when I'm adjusting to new time zones. So again, I have no idea if I feel any different.

I suppose it's silly playing this game with myself considering the last time I was pregnant I didn't feel any different until 7 weeks in. But like anyone in the 2WW I'm letting my mind play tricks on me. I suppose that just goes with the territory.

Beta is not until the 26th so I've got a ways to go. Oh, and I still don't know where I am going to be doing it yet. I don't have a doctor in California anymore and so the nurse at my US clinic is trying to find a lab where I can have it done. I just hope she can find someplace close to where we are staying.

So for now I'm just doing my injections and trying to live my life as normal as possible.

  7. Ugh that jet lag.. it is awful. I'm sure you can find a lab.. even a Labcorp or Quest can do it- they are walk in's.. you just need a prescription from your US office. Hope this helps!!! Fingers crossed!

  11. what a mind game, that jet lag + 2WW combo. Hold strong, dear woman. The 26th will be here in 6 days. And it sounds like more jet lag is on its way before then.

  17. Urgh - all that back & forth would make me crazy. I really admire your strength in all this. Infertility treatment is hard enough when it's all done at the local clinic down the road, but add in all the travel and I can't imagine how you're doing it. I hope this 2ww goes quickly, that you have a lovely time with your family, and most importantly, that we see a nice strong BFP on the 26th!
