Have a very sore tummy, and feel very very tired. I have a horrible feeling this is a UTI - but that said only the stomache and the need to pee fit. There's no pain when I go anyway, and there's always something to come out - there's none of that needing to go and finding nothing comes. I don't feel good though.
I really don't think I can be pregnant, so I'm taking some over the counter stuff that seemed safe. Hopefully in a couple of days it'll be fine. And then hopefully AF will show up quickly so I can start a proper cycle TTC!
Well, 9dpo. And I am coming to the conclusion that something is going on. Lots of things say it shouldn't be - the time we BDed, the fact that it's only month 1 of trying, the fact that I don't feel THAT tired... But I have to be honest... it feels like it might just be a possibility.... (ooh I hardly dare write that...)
Anyway here's the symptoms I posted earlier on Oct:

What do you think? Symptoms so far have been:
Nausea and AF type cramps since 2dpo
Needing to go to the loo a lot since 3dpo
Constant hunger, even after eating, since 4dpo
Sore boobs since 7dpo
Sharp twinges on low left side of abdomen yesterday at 8dpo
And symptoms as above today at 9dpo.
I had spotting today - a very, very small amount of pink tinge when wiping. Implantation? And I feel SO dizzy and SO sick at moments - then it goes again. If I'm not pregnant - well, I don't know what the hell is going on...
I made a resolution not to test until 12dpo. So only three days to go...
Well... More spotting today, which just about convinced me AF is on her way, but it hasn't become anything more than spotting and a tiny bit of brown on a pantliner. Normally within a few hours I am well and truly bleeding, so this isn't obviously a period and nor is it clearly anything else!
I never realised how stressful this is... I'm trying to stay calm. 10dpo. I've said I'll wait until Wednesday. Can I wait that long? I've made up my mind only to use FMU, so if I can get through tomorrow morning then I can probably wait until Wednesday!
Some of me wants to wait until AF is due anyway (Saturday) as I'd rather see AF than get a BFN and not know, I think.... Ooh I just don't know! It would be so great if I WAS pregnant... I'd be able to know I was pregnant at my SILs wedding on March 16th - that would be very cool...
HORRIBLE day today. DH is stressed to the max and has been carping at me and refusing to speak all day. I'm well prepared for dealing with a toddler seeing as I have him to cope with!
I appreciate that work is bad but why does he have to take it out on me? Plus I worry about him being so on edge and he takes that the wrong way too, saying I'm interfering if I try to be caring. Honestly. Men.
So now I can't really bring up the issue of TTC properly, and he's so stressed he even reneged on his promise to DTD this evening because he's not in the mood. I am now afraid he's going to say no again this month, that we're not ready, and if he doesn't go for it I know I will be REALLY upset, which will put something of a downer on Valentine's Day.
Next cycle's predictions are: O on the 5th, AF due on the 19th.
Please please please please can this be my month? At least to TRY? Oh how do I not get my hopes up? I need to stay calm, even though work is stressy, or that will inhibit my attempts to conceive anyway.
I went out to dinner last night and my two pregnant friends spent all night talking babies and pregnancy. DH was irritated, I was sad. It was a nice evening, but difficult.
Anyway, I guess there's nothing I can do for now. Just keep hoping.
Well I feel much better today. DH has cheered up after a more productive day at work. No news on the TTC but then I haven't asked. I'm waiting to DTD and then we can see what happens.
He's out at a meeting now. I've just finished the thrilling task of writing my reports and I'm now vegging on the sofa with a nice glass of raspberry and cranberry juice. Work is still pretty crap at my end but I'm coping ok.
I've also got a date booked to babysit my friend's LO (11 months - or will be) for a WHOLE DAY on friday 15th! That will be exciting, and a bit of a challenge. Good practice, I hope, as well...
NO BC IS CONTINUING!!! I think we are GO for, if not TTC, letting it happen at least.
BUT DH had trouble being that interested this morning - I think I pounced on him too early! it was great fun but er, no deposit was forthcoming, so that was disappointing because today is CD 12 and I think the timing is PERFECT. So I am going to try and jump on him this evening and hope things go better.
I'm concerned this cycle won't be the one though - can't seem to cope without lube, however much we muck around beforehand. I'm trying to use as little as possible, and I've ordered some pre-seed, but I'm not sure that'll be here in time for Oing... We'll see.
In the meantime, if you're reading this, keep your fingers crossed we get it right this evening!
BDed last night with much success. Think I may have missed my O surge on the OPKs though - visible line neg at 1pm yesterday - very faint again by today at 5:30. Have had cramps today so quite possibly have Od... But equally possibly not. Have not seen anything like the EWCM I usually do. (Although more sex may have disguised that). Anyway, if I Od today then yesterday will cover it, if I O tomorrow probably still and we will DTD tomorrow night to cover that anyway.
