    Okay.... so... I realized today that this is going to be the LONGEST 2 weeks of my life!!! UGH!!! I'm only 2 DPO and I'm totally wishing I was 12DPO!!!! At least next week had a Holiday in it so it's a 4 day work week... then I'm off to NY for my brother and step-sister's graduation parties.

    I really hope the time goes by quick!!!

    Okay, so 6DPO... really sore nips! It started on Friday or Saturday but started getting worse on Sunday and they've continued to be ouchie! I was cramping on Sunday and yesterday... not so much today. Very tired yesterday and today. Since Sunday things have been tasting strange... this sometimes happens to me anyway so I'm not counting it as a symptom!! HAHAHAHA, yeah right!!! My mouth just feels dry.

    OH!!! My HPT today was just barely positive, so that means the hcg is pretty much out of my system so I can start testing for real!!! woo hoo! I'm going to start on Friday, I think. I'll only be 9DPO, but that's okay. If I get a BFN, well, I know it's too early! I will be out of town this weekend so I really want to test before I leave... then I will test again on Monday and everyday until either AF or BFP!!! YEAH!

    I'm soooo bored... I want today to be over so Corey and I can spend teh 4th together... then I have one day of work and then off on Friday to go to NY!!!

    UGH... got my progesterone results. Only 9.8... I know it's not horrible, but all the info on the net says they like to see 15 for a medicated cycle!

    At least I know I ovulated... that's a good thing

    Wish my prog was higher though!!!!

    So I posted this on the March 08 board... I edited it so I only have the most important info

    so... 12DPO, tested this morning, BFN but my temps are still pretty good.

    Cramps: everyone talks about getting AF type cramps.. well, my cramps started shortly after O and they felt like AF cramps, but now they are different. Can anyone describe what their cramps feel like? My AF cramps kind of feel like a burning, like an irritation on your skin but inside... does that make any sense?? As of probably last Weds. my cramps kind of feel like bad gas pains They are a little bit stonger than AF cramps and don't last as long.. just a couple throughout the day, usually a little bit worse at night.

    Boobs: my nipples were soresensitive after hcg trigger and everything... now they are not sore/sensitive, but my boobs are sore underneath... progressively getting a little more sore each day (this started around 7DPO). Nothing else though, no veins or color change or anything. Anyone else have this??

    Tastebuds: I haven't had any food aversions or anything like that... I just can't seem to taste anything unless it's really strong (ie- today I just HAD to have French onion dip) and things taste overly salty to me. It's just weird... has anyone ever had this??

    Cotton mouth: starting a few days after O, I've had a really really dry mouth...Even with tons of water it was still wicked dry... well up until today. Today feels normal (YEAH! I was really not liking that feeling)

    I just really don't know if it's a combination of things that is making my body act strange or what I haven't really had any other things I would consider "symptoms"... I get kind of brain foggy anyway so I can't say its preggo brain. I've gotten dizzy a couple times in the past few days, but again, this is kind of normal My mom says I was born dizzy!!!

    Any thoughts? I know it's early and I could still get a BFP, but I just don't feel like this is the cycle so I'm looking for rational explanations of why these things are happening Could it be the drugs???

    *************************************
    And to top it off, since yesterday I've been CRAVING fried chicken!!!! We actually went to KFC last night for supper so DH wouldn't have to listen to me complain... nothing else sounds good right now except for fried chicken!!! I haven't eaten fried chicken in a LONG LONG time!!! Craziness! And then today I was craving french onion dip... again, something I haven't had in a long time!

    Tonight I'm boiling... I seriously feel like I'm gonna keel over cause I'm so hot. My temp (1/2 hour ago) was 99.4!!! WTF?!?!?!?! If I'm not pregnant I'm seriously going to be sooo mad! I mean why does your body have to play tricks??

    I had a horrible night sleep last night... I kept waking up then was up at like 6:30 and couldn't fall back to sleep! I ended up taking a 2 hour nap today... yup, you read that right, 2 hours!!!! I feel like I could sleep more, but I know as soon as I try to fall asleep, I won't be able to OR I will wake up constantly throughout the night! UGH!

    I will be testing again tomorrow... and Weds. and well, everyday until I get a BFP or the darn witch shows her ugly unwanted fat face!!!

    Night all!

    Well, my time away was short lived *sigh* My hcg levels on 7/16 were good... they doubled like the should have but 7/17 I started spotting... went for bloodwork and well, numbers didn't look so good.

    7/11 -hcg 18 (14DPO)
    7/16 -hcg 119, Progesterone 12.7
    7/17 -hcg 127, Progesterone 7.11

    So, I knew it was coming... The m/c started on Sunday... well, technically Sat. is when the MAJOR cramps hit but I didn't start bleeding until Sunday. Went for bloodwork yesterday morning and was okay... then WHAM! I could barely function the cramps were so bad! I called the doctor and they prescribed Tylenol 3! Thank God!! I was able to get some sleep. DH worked from home so he could take care of me

    Doc wants me to wait a whole month before trying again WAH! I don't want to wait a whole month!!! Anyway... I should go and get some work done!

    So, I'm just sitting here... I should be working, but I needed a break. We have our house warming party next weekend and we have SOOOO much to do, I'm beginning to freak out a little bit!! EEEK!!!

    This time has flown by so quickly! I probably need another month of non-stop work to get everything done for the party and I only have a week... well technically a week and a half, but my brother is arriving next Weds so really just a week!

    At least this will keep my mind off of other things... like not being able to TTC for a whole month!! UGH!
