So What Happens After the Transfer?

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding;In all your ways acknowledge him,and he will direct your path.” Proverbs 3:5-6

God Willing here is what is supposed to happen after a 5 Day Blastocyst Transfer:

5 Day Transfer

1dpt....Blastocyst hatches out of shell on this day
2dpt.... Blastocyst attaches to a site on the uterine lining
3dpt.... Implantation begins,as the blastocyst begins to bury in the lining
4dpt.... Implantation process continues and blastocyst buries deeper in the lining
5dpt.... Blastocyst is completely implanted in the lining and has placenta cells &
fetal cells
6dpt....Placenta cells begin to secret HCG in the blood
7dpt....More HCG is produced as fetus develops
8dpt....More HCG is produced as fetus develops
9dpt....HCG levels are now high enough to be immediately detected on HPT

So far I have been very calm waiting for my beta and I absolutely refuse to buy a HPT and POAS. I have been having cramping and nausea but that could be a result of all of the hormones I am on. I am on Vivelle Dot Patches, Crinine 8% and EV2, which is a Pregestone/Estrogen combination suppository. My beta is tomorrow at Quest at 7:15 am and by the grace of God Mr. Blessed Bud and I will have some good news about the Munchkins.
