9dpo: over anlayzing

So last night was the third night in a row that S didn’t feel so great about an hour after dinner. She describes it as being heady. I have been working off a cold for about 1.5 weeks now so it could be her fighting off my cold. OR it could be that she is pregnant. She is on progesterone right now and has never been on that. We aren’t sure if that could be making her feel strange or not. Her (this may be too much info for our non-IF readers) breasts have more pronounced veins (potential sign or indication that her progesterone level is higher). So, we are currently overanalyzing everything, as the TWW tends to force us to do. We did a HPT this morning to see if S still had HCG in her system (that is the shot I gave to make her ovulate and also the hormone HPT detects for pregnancy). It was negative so we are pretty sure if we see any lines on Monday it most likely is not a false positive.

Anywho, this whole IF thing needs a little rant from me. So all early pregnancy and pregnancy signs are the same as AF signs OR are caused by the drugs. For example, the veiny boobs could be pregnancy OR progesterone. It is impossible to know what is really happening to your body or if it is all the prescriptions you have pumped into it. GRRRRR…

As promised, today’s photo isn’t as pretty as the other days but is a bit more real! Carolyn, I didn’t even have to use crayons this time…presenting...an implanted blast!

Ahhhh, takes me back to middle school science class (NOT that we ever discussed conception of course)! Sometimes I wish I could meet mother nature, or whoever it is that likes to play cruel jokes on people, making them have symptoms that can be one of a million different things going on! Hope you both are finding ways to stay sane...

Ugh! It's like having to be a constant hypochondriac! I have a feeling that if I ever try to get pregnant, I'll think I'm pregnant every time I breathe slightly differently.

That picture is SO cool! And I like the new picture of the two of you, too ;-)

And it's lovely the way Mother Nature and science screw with our heads when we're trying to get knocked up...pregnancy symptoms are the same as AF symptoms are the same as progesterone symptoms...arghhh!!!!

The symptoms could be caused by either the PIO or AF. And if she starts cramping- like PMS cramping-- yeah that could be either to...just telling you so you won't be at all suprised. I had no discernable symptoms. It would be nice to have something definitive where you knew before you knew-- and maybe there are people out there that have that (I think it is a urban legend) but I am hoping the best for you both!

I made it into the blog twice now! Yessssss. Sara suggested that I commission you to do a rendering of my bum eye or perhaps my ovary. You know, things I only have 'one' of. Love you guys and will be keeping my f's c'd that Sara's boobs are veiny for the right reason! ~Carolyn

I don't think it's possible to not notice every little thing that may be slightly different than before.

Let's hope it's intuition of what's to come!

9DPO is exactly when I morph into psycho-detective mode as well. Every twinge, ache, cramp, etc. sends me spiriling into crazytown.

Best of luck to both of you!
