10dp3dt - 4 more sleeps to go!!

And so I find myself on 13 days past retrieveal, which mean sthat AF would be due on Wednesday this week. I have my doubts that she will appear because No. 1....get this....I *think* i'm pregnant and No. 2....I'm on Estro.gen and Prog.esterone so that'll keep her away for a while anyway...I think?

My blood test will be done at about 9:30'ish on Friday and so I should know at about 10:30 the latest, we will wait at the clinic for the results as hopefully they'll need to give me more prog.esterone for the next 8 weeks (yeah, I'm begging for cylco.gest - have I lost my mind completely??). After that we will off to the Nat.al Mid.lands for the weekend to attend a wedding on Saturday night, we will stay Friday and Saturday and return on Sunday, hopefully it'll be a really good weekend apposed to a really shitty one. I'll admit, the timing is NOT perfect at all but this is one of the things we cannot plan for. I am hoping that I wont spend the weekend in a puddle of tears!

So by Friday I will be 14dp3dt which makes it 17 days past retrieval...that's a damn long wait if you ask me!!

Okay so, let me tell you why (whispering) *I think I'm pregnant*...
  1. I'm feeling different, I have a good feeling for a change, I just think I am...
  2. My boobs have really expanded their horizons, for once my hubby told me that my boobs look different - to put it into his words "huge"....nice one, so much for "no, your boobs don't look different..."
  3. I am getting wierd feeling pains in my boobs, sort of like a sticth shooting from the top to my nipple and then just like that, it's gone. My boobs are sore on the outside but not my nipple and not all the time...
  4. I am feeling quite bloated but that could also be because I'm still battling with my tummy...constipation central!
  5. I have spots ever popping up on my face, so much so that Frank is starting to call me "bumpy"
  6. My mom says that her "flower cards" say that there is a new arrival on it's way...I don't believe in that stuff but we'll see if she's right...
  7. I just feel strange....no signs of AF as yet but like I said before, I think the meds should keep her away...

And that's it, nothing really concreate to go on and I have been known to be wrong about it before, it could all be hormones or pre-AF symptoms. I am trying to stay positive and am feeling much better than I expected to at this point, even Frank commented that he thought I'd be worse....4 more sleeps to go!!

It helps that little Bumble thinks I am too, it's helps to have everyone's good feelings all thrown into one! Bumble also wants to know if I am tempted to POAS and it would be easy, at least I would know, but there is a little part of me that is scared that it's bad news so I'll keep my promise and wait until my beta, we've come this far, what's another few days?

So with that, we're still waiting...

that sounds very very promising!! i had those shooting pains in my boobs too.

yeah progesterone will keep AF away. no doubt dr. google has already told you that, irritatingly, it is also the hormone that causes many early pregnancy symptoms in natural pregnancies, so when we're taking it we should have at least some of those symptoms, but i had thoose shooting boob pains only with my BFP cycle and never when i was on progesterone/estrogen before.

good luck with the rest of the wait!!

How exciting! I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Oh Shit Sarah, now you've got me all excited, I've been looking for the "shooting boob pain and BFP's" thing but no-one seems to mention it.

Yeah, the progesterone and estrogen is shit stuff, can't believe how many symptoms it can give you, not fair at all! Hoping this boobie pain means something tho!! Haven't been that moody this time round, is that wierd?

Kate said...

I hope all of the signs point to "yes". I'll be thinking of you! :)

Throw in my good feelings too! I'm very excited for you. I can't believe you're going to wait until Friday :)

Leah said...

I can't even stand myself that I am SOOOOOOOOOO excited for you! I too had those shooting boob pains, so that, coupled with your intuition, I'm going to take as an amazingly good sign. I simply cannot wait until your beta on Friday!!

Sticky Bun said...

So exciting! You must be ready to burst waiting for the test! I give you SO much credit for sticking to your promise not to test (I would certainly have caved by now). I'm hoping with everything in me that this is your cycle!! Can't wait until Friday!

Shelby said...

Bean said...

That all sounds good. I'm crossing my fingers too and hoping you're right!
