2 week wait

I am now officially in the middle of my 2ww. We triggered last Monday, I had one follie that was 19. That doesn't sound very big based on my Dr. Google research but the doctors and nurses felt good about it so there you go. We followed our instructions on intercourse and then some, for added coverage and now it's the waiting game. I've read that you can try to home test starting 8-10 days past trigger and not get a false positive. Anyone had any experience with this? I have my beta June 21 which will be 14dpo (or trigger). I don't think I can hold out that long. I am worried about making travel plans to Chicago if I get a positive and I want to get intralipid therapy ASAP if I am pg.

The biggest bummer of my appointment on Monday was the nurse said absolutely no exercise until my beta. Shit, I have gained close to 4 pounds since we started meds. I need to run and go to the gym for my sanity. She said I could walk, but I just don't get the same endorphins from that. For me exercise has taken the place of my antidepressant. She specifically said no twisting so I'm thinking a slow easy run would be ok. And maybe my Pump class as long as I pass on the abs part. I know ME and Body Combat would be out, which is more sad b/c I love those classes. I just have to keep my eye on the prize, and not turn into a giant bowl of cookie dough.

My last trigger took 10 days to get out of my system, so that sounds about right! Good Luck this cycle! I've got my fingers crossed for you.

Do whatever exercise you feel comfortable with. You can't do much to discourage a pregnancy that's going to work, but if exercise is something you think you will regret, don't do it. I went running during my donor egg cycle that worked, so I don't believe the "don't exercise" rules. Whatever you end up doing, my fingers are crossed that this one sticks.

I think I did 12d after trigger but also tried to take it with a grain of salt. I'm with Sue about the whole exercixe thing- just take slow :)

Good luck... and thanks. Now you have me thinking about cookie dough ;)

I am one of those terrible people whose trigger sticks around until 14dpo - ugh. But I do recommend testing it out on cheapies so you know when you are in the clear. I would def be testing early due to the intralipids issue.

I wouldn't put to much stock in the no exercise rules. I would think a gentle run or swim would be good. Whatever keeps the stress down IMO.

Best of luck, am crossing everything for you.

Thinking of you and hoping the 2ww will go by quickly and with a great result!
