I am confused about whether I've ovulated yet this cycle or not (long story posted in other threads) but the last time I thought I might have was 13 days ago, so I'm going to test tomorrow....
My encouraging signs:
*Breasts are weird. Normally my PMS starts with a very distinct sensation of something spreading thru my breast, sort of stinging; it happens on one side and then the other, and from then on they're increasingly sore and swollen. Well, I've had that initial sensation several times on each side, but after it goes away I'm not sore or swollen, just slightly more tender than usual since it started about 3 weeks ago.
*Heavy feeling just above pubic bone--but off and on, not constantly.
*Feels like I need to pee only 30 minutes or so after I last did. I wait and see how long it takes to feel really urgent, and that's an hour or 2, but the bladder tension is there the whole time.
*Tired. Slept 10 hours last night, which is very unusual for me. Keep finding myself flopping into chairs and sighing "oh my" which is something I normally do only after, say, 5 hours of moving furniture; haven't done anything that demanding recently.
*Cervix is rock-hard. (Actually, I'm not sure if that's a good sign, and it is a PMS thing for me.)
My discouraging signs:
*Mood swings and wild baby-lust of a few weeks ago have faded. I still want a baby and think about it a lot, but I'm not staying late after work to sniffle over online diaper catalogs anymore
and I feel more emotionally even.
*My last period started Nov. 4, and I'm not at all sure I O'd. This could just be one of the long anovulatory phases I have sometimes. When I do O, it's usually in the middle of the month, not at the beginning, but I've had no O symptoms since 2 weeks ago.
*Still having headaches--in fact, I've had them unusually frequently in the past 5 weeks--and my dr. says headaches generally go away during pregnancy.
Hmmm...we'll see! Good luck, Coolermama and Amywillo!
