8dp5dt - Bullet Updates!

- I’m not feeling anything new. I’m still having the twinges and the cramping in my uterus on and off. The breasts are still tender, about the same, really. I started to have a little CM yesterday but I know that doesn’t mean anything one way or another. I am, however, feeling pretty emotional these days. I know I’m pumping hormones into my body so it doesn’t surprise me too much. I just feel extra weepy and it’s pretty easy to tick me off right now. Both are signs of a period but could also mean something else…if you get my drift.


- BJ asked me last night when I was testing and I explained to him the planning work that I’m doing today and tomorrow and how it’d be terrible to get a bad test result right now. Plus, my birthday is Friday. He said it made sense to wait until Saturday, if I can. That’s the thing. Can I wait until Saturday? We shall see.

- I really don’t like coming to work these days. There’s been a shift of power in our office and it has not had good repercussions at all. People that I thought were friendly enough to have my back have shown that they are the ones I need to protect myself from. It sucks.

- My behind is so damn sore. Don’t get me wrong, I hope I get to keep taking everything for several more weeks (until I’m weaned off with a healthy pregnancy) but man oh man do I hurt sometimes. And it’s now getting to the point where the area is so sore that the needles are hurting more and more. I’ll endure it, but just so everyone out there knows, it sucks to have to go through this.

- I’ve received some very nice comments lately. I’ve heard from my regular followers/pals and I’ve started to hear from some Anonymous readers as well. I read a comment the other day that brought tears to my eyes. I’ve pasted it here so you all can read it, too. I am always amazed at the support this web community can bestow upon total strangers. It’s wonderful, really.

The days of my kids being little are long over but please know, you have so many anonymous people, along with your followers, pulling for you and praying for you. You deserve this so much and I am sending good thoughts your way! I don't follow your blog but I do pop in and I am hoping so strongly that I get to read a post on your positive results very soon!!!

- No big plans for Friday (the birthday) other than getting my license renewed. Woo hoo! Exciting stuff. Our anniversary is Sunday (5 years!) so hopefully we’ll eat out somewhere nice. Of course there is always yard work to be done. But I’m glad to have it because that means that my flower garden is thriving.

- My Caps lost in game 7. I was very sad but I think they deserve a lot of credit for playing as hard as they did. They fought tooth and nail for every victory and just came up a little short. Poor guys.

I guess that’s about all for now. If I break down and test before Saturday I will be sure to post the results, good or bad. You guys will likely know before BJ. :-) Fingers crossed that it’s good news and that I’m just not feeling a whole lot right now and maybe it means I’ll have a simple pregnancy! I know that’s asking a lot but I gotta go big or go home, right?

Everything remains crossed for you.

I'm sorry that work is adding an extra layer of stress for you, that just sucks. Hopefully there will be maternity leave in your future :)

Rebecca said...

I'm so hopeful that the symptoms you have are a good sign.

All those symptoms sound good to me! You're a rock star for holding out on the pee sticks but I must confess I was hoping you had broken down *LOL* Sorry about your Caps, they played hard and you can be proud =) It sucks that you dread work these days, hopefully soon your mind will be in a preggo fog and you won't give a f***!

Augusta said...

Well, those symptoms sound promising to me. I'm sorry your behind is suffering so much right now. Still, I am hopeful that you'll have to put it through 8-9 more weeks of injections.
Thanks for keeping us posted. I'm keeping finfers and toes crossed for you.

Thinking of you as this week drags on... I know it's hard to hold off on testing, but I think you'll be happy you waited - either way. Thinking of you!!! Sending you and embryo love!!!!!

Everything sounds good so far. I've never had symptoms until at least 6+ weeks or so, so don't read too much into no nausea, etc. Sorry to hear about work, I feel for you! I'm also with Caryn, I was hoping you'd already tested but I certainly understand and respect why you haven't. Sending you all sorts of positive vibes!!

Leslie said...

Everything sounds promising!! I too was hoping you have already tested but I understand waiting too. It is all about what makes you feel better! All my fingers & toes are crossed for GREAT news when you do decide to test!! Thinking of you!

I felt nothing when I was pregnant with Finn practically until they put him in my arms 9 months later. Ok, a slight exaggeration but not really and I especially didn't feel anything before I tested It's so hard not to analyzes semi-maybe-symptoms at this point but they really don't mean anything. Makes so much sense to wait til Sat to test but I'll be checking everyday until then. Tons and tons of FX!! I hope work settles down, mine is going thru similar upheavals and it sucks. :(

Fran said...

Tons of positive vibes my friend!
