|One||The blastocyst begins to hatch out of its shell|
|Two||The blastocyst continues to hatch out of its shell and begins to attach itself to the uterus|
|Three||The blastocyst attaches deeper into the uterine lining, beginning implantation|
|Five||Implantation is complete, cells that will eventually become the placenta and fetus have begun to develop|
|Six||Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) starts to enter the blood stream|
|Seven||Fetal development continues and hCG continues to be secreted|
|Eight||Fetal development continues and hCG continues to be secreted|
|Nine||Levels of hCG are now high enough to detect a pregnancy|
I'm hoping this chart will help keep me grounded (read: sane) as I wait for my beta on Dec 9th since my crazy little mind likes to twist around "4dp5dt" to be 9DPO and I tell myself that people get BFPs as early as 9DPO...I should test soon!
Pete hasn't even fully implanted yet (if he's even going to) and my body definitely has not begun secreting hCG. So this chart helps me for the next 3 days but after that I make no promises. I am a crazy chicken right now! (Hubs always told me I should have named this blog "Diary of a Crazy Chicken"...I think he's right.)
Also - I am feeling much better physically! I even did some grocery shopping yesterday (first time out of the house in a week besides dr. appts)! I am definitely on the mend.
