Hello everyone in TTC,<br><br>
It's been over a year since I posted on Mothering.com, mostly because I no longer work glued to a computer, but it's nice to be back at this point in time.<br><br>
My partner Sara and I have just had our first round of insemination (via a fertility clinic; we're not having fertility issues so far, but as lesbians, that is the route we found would be the most effecient). I woke up this morning having had a nightmare that I was getting my period, and sure enough, that's what happened.<br><br>
Anyway, I'm so confused because I actually had what I thought were symptoms of early pregnancy. Right after insemination, my uterus felt all taut, and I even felt a little spasm down there one morning, like my pulse. Then I had very bad nausea and heartburn which went away when I did the whole eating before you get up and having small, frequent meals.<br><br>
Could it be that I had psychosematic symptoms? It sounds so weird, but I'm wondering if any of you who have been pg before have ever experienced this.<br>
If so, I would love to hear about it! I feel like such a nut!<br><br>
Bummed out but raring to go for round two....<br><br>

Well if you're a nut, we all are!! (of course that is a distinct possibility too!) I think when you try so hard and it's all you think about and you want it SOOOO bad, it's normal to see every little thing as a sign.<br>
Sorry this time wasn't for you, but I'll keep my fingers crossed for you next time!!!<br>
Btw, we had a thread a while ago asking to hear from more lesbian mamma to be's, if you're interested, it's likely only a page or two back.<br>
And come on over to the one thread, then you can be insane with a group <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

This is so true!! All four of my pregnancies I've been convinced I'm not pregnant!! Although the super bitchiness is a good clue and aside from making you want to bitch slap the Tim Hortons chick that makes a joke about your tea, it also makes me negative--so maybe that's why I've always been a little surprised!

Yes, I think I am pregnant every cycle. It's getting better (in the beginning I was so convinced, and yet I found out I wasn't ovulating!) Now I am more laid-back about it (though I still get some symptoms!)<br><br>
Also, not to weird you out, but sometimes the egg does get impregnanted, but then it doesn't implant -- I think that's happened to me once or twice. I don't look at that as an early miscarriage, though some women do. (If you actually got a positive, then it would be an early miscarriage, or a "chemical pregnancy")<br><br>
BTW, I also extend the invitation to come join us in the One Thread! We're a zany, chatty group of TTCers, so we all band together, regardless of where in our cycles we are!<br><br>

Hello!<br><br>
Wow, what great replies! I was very moved by all of them and feel much better about having had these symptoms. One of my friends keeps reminding my how strong the mind/body connection and how it is a good thing, not a bad thing.<br><br>
What was really odd is that I got symptoms I didn't even know were symptoms. Nausea (which, btw, I never feel. The last time I was nauseous was on a very choppy boat ride about five years ago) I knew about; but heartburn? It wasn't til I had it that I looked it up. So it's not like I read the symptoms first and then got them. So strange. Of course, I do realize I could have had an embryo that didn't implant. I read that is very common.<br><br>
I will definitely be checking out the thread about lesbian mamas. I have a nutty couple of days coming up, but will do so as soon as I have some time to breathe again.<br><br>
In the meantime, I have to go back to the fert. clinic today for a baseline ultrasound to check for cysts. This will give us the green light for the next round.<br><br>
Read you soon!<br><br>
