So I'm kind of freaking out. I went from doing really good and being pretty patient to being a total nervous wreck! I was exhausted all day yesterday and slept great last night and woke up quickly and all but once I was in the car headed to the doc I was so tired I couldn't stand it. On my way back from the doc office I was so tired I dozed off in the car!!! Thankfully I snapped out of it some and made it to my mom's. I basically walked in the door straight to her couch where I decided to lie down for just a minute thinking I was just sleepy from driving and then woke up and hour and a half later. I completely passed out. I was only going to stay at her house for a few minutes before heading home but I couldn't make it. Geez. I'm having some lower back pain today which could be from sleeping weird on the couch...not sure. I had one super sharp cramp early that made me jump off my seat. I also had a spot of blood last night while trying to use the progesterone applicator. I'm taking all of these as signs even though I'm trying not to. I'm only 7DPO it doesn't seem likely...my telltale sign last time was my BBs being so sore I couldn't stand it and they're a teeny bit tender but nothing significant.
I'm going freaking crazy! The more I think about it the more insane I feel. I think that logically all of this must be from the progesterone, but I thought one of the first things progesterone did was cause sore BBs and they're still not bad. So I don't know what to think. I guess we'll know in about 30 mins if progesterone is a factor. I get my test back then. I feel like I'm going to lose my mind waiting to hear about that. I just want to be pregnant so bad. And putting my body through the hormones and the fertility meds month after month is just so hard. Part of me isn't sure how much longer I can take this if I find out I'm not pregnant.
Man I can't wait to have my answer either way. Also I could get AF as early as Monday and definitely no AF stuff yet. I'm usually an evil biotch by now but that hasn't happened yet either...GRRRRR. I don't get it!
I am so with you on being tired. There many factors causing me being tired like going to bed a t 1:00am and it has been very hot here and the energy has been drained. crossing my fingers for you girl!!

I'm sorry that you are so tired but hope that it is because you have a little one growing in there That was one of my first symptoms. The stress of ttc is NOT fun! I hope that you get a bfp soon...and then there will be a whole different set of worries to stress about. Good luck!
Thanks ladies. Today has just been so rough. I did finally hear back from the doc and my progesterone was 16.2 which they were really happy about. That also leads me to believe that how I'm feeling is NOT from the progesterone. My level was 20 something last time at 7DPO and I didn't feel bad at all. So I'm really hoping me feeling like I feel is pregnancy related and not something else. I'm going to test in the morning with FMU just because I know there's a slight chance it could be positive if I am. So I guess we'll see.
Oh Leah are you going to test tomorrow? I think my 1st symptom was that i was tired this time! my bbs weren't sore till around a week after my BFP so it's different every time! FX for you I can't wait till tomorrow to hear if you see anything!

I hope all the symptoms are because you're pregnant! Fatigue is always my first symptoms and it usually hits sometime around 7dpo. I actually never get any real breast changes - they don't get bigger or sore. Good luck!

I'm definitely going to start testing tomorrow. I keep hearing that symptoms are different every time so I hope so bad that's what it is in my case. I mean passing out on my mom's couch like that was super weird for me. I still had an hour to go to drive back home and I stopped off halfway and slept at her house. Lol. She was banging around and making a bunch of noise in the kitchen too and I slept right through it. When I woke up she was asleep. Lol. Her first words "I think you might be pregnant". I did feel this tired last time. I just don't think it hit until after I got my BFP. I was hungry and wanting everything and my boobs were killing me. They're starting to hurt a lot more tonight though. Tender to the touch tonight for sure and especially around my armpits which is where they hurt so bad when I was pregnant before. I hope to God this is it! I just can't take these waits anymore!!! Is it really possible to be this exhausted at 7DPO though? I could go back to sleep right now easily I think.
Leah it's definitely true about each one being different. With DD my only early symptom was extreme fatigue, came home from work, went straight to bed until the next morning! Even nausea didn't start until I was about 10 weeks (when I found out I was PG). This time my bbs were sore from O, getting worse and worse.
I'm starting to feel more and more like I really have a good chance. I swear as the day has gone on today I've felt different. I'm more and more exhausted every hour I swear, despite my hour and a half nap and the fact that I haven't done much since then. BBs are really started to get sore for sure...though they're not terrible yet. I also struggled through dinner tonight which I always did when I was pregnant. It's not like I was nauseated or grossed out but it was hard to just eat normally. I didn't even eat it all...that never happens. Lol. I'm going to feel like such an idiot if I'm wrong!
I also finally got a call back from the doc and they said my progesterone was 16.2 which was really good. However, it was over 20 last time when I was pregnant and I didn't feel his bad yet...so I'm think I definitely don't feel bad from the progesterone unless it can make me feel bad without making my level higher.
