Wehrli: WOOT! That is amazing! Congratulations!! Stick stick stick stick...
Miss Scarlett: I know very little about temp drops, but I do know that it's not over until AF shows up, so hang in there!
AFM: The cramping is weird. Sometimes it's intense, but it only lasts like a minute and then it's fine. Last night, I was convinced AF was coming early, progesterone-in-oil shots be damned. I don't know what to think about it. It's disheartening, because it really feels like AF. But it's also fairly early for me to feel cramps like this. And I don't think I've ever
had menstrual cramps at 5DPO (which is when these cramps started). Since TTC, I've only started early once, and it was the first cycle. Ever since then, it's been on time or a couple days late. I know being pregnant feels a lot like impending AF, but I'll be honest, I get more pessimistic as the time ticks by.
I had the choice of getting a beta done at the NP's office, with results Saturday morning, but DP doesn't want to think about it over the weekend. So I'm going to see if my PCP will do a quantitative beta tomorrow at my checkup - she has to do bloodwork anyway for my thyroid, so it would be nice to get it done then. But those results wouldn't come in until Monday. I'm going to most likely POAS tomorrow morning (11DPO) and see what happens. I inadvertently bought those CRAZY FR HPT that tell you SIX DAYS before your missed period. I am inclined to be suspicious of claims like that...
Other symptoms to speak of: I feel like I'm running a little warmer than normal. The weather has finally cooled down here, but I just feel warm. I've also been having vivid dreams - last night, I had a dream that involved a massive amount of fire and the ocean. None of these are dead ringer pregnancy symptoms, obviously - and in a non TTC month, I might not even notice. The cramping is the biggest thing, and something I haven't noticed as early before.
Sorry for not more personals - I'm getting to the very-anxious portion of my TTC cycle.
I hope Miss Scarlett
and I both have great news tomorrow.
