Ditto, I hope and pray this is "it" for you!!! You totally deserve it after so long.

Thanks girls. I was tempted not to post, but then I realized that I NEVER get to post stuff like this! This cycle has been wonky from the beginning, but in truth I've just felt "it" for the past few days. It's the first time ever where I've just felt like...I know I am..in a weird way.
Here are the symptoms so far:
-Major acne breakout on my face and back and chest. I have at least 7 massive cystic zits on my face and, while my skin isn't perfect, I never get more than one or two cystic zits at a time and only a few times a year. I worked from home all last week on the late shift and my skin looks so bad I was embarrassed to work in the office today!
-Weird crampyness and bloating. I had cramps during AF, but they never really went away and I had that early O. Then I was fine for a few days then some of the crampyness cam back.
-SORE BOOBS! OMG! Last night when I took my bra off I wanted to die. The last two times I felt this way was with an HSG shot last year and my early loss the year before.
-Insomnia/weird dreams. Last Thursday I had a vivid dream that I was buying a lunch box (one that I've wanted for like a year but it was $26 and I just didn't want to spend that on it). When I woke up I was so sad that I didn't have the lunch box that I immediately ordered it online (and it's awesome! Got it yesterday and it's so fun and cute!) Then last night I had a dream I went back to law school with an astrologer friend of mine. Very odd. I've also had trouble sleeping for no reason. I'm not tired really either. It's like I'm just...blah. Not tired, but not energetic. Very unusual for me as I like to sleep 10-14 hours whenever I can!
-Food just tastes different. Everything has been tasting like it has dill in it, and I hate dill. I had herb and garlic cream cheese on a bagel on Saturday and I thought maybe they changed the brand/flavour. Then DH tasted it and it was fine. Same thing last night - had some lipton noodle side dish (alfredo) with our meatloaf and it tasted off...like it was too sweet. I've had those noodles 100 times and never thought they tasted off. And today I have apples and peanut butter in my lunch. I LOVE apples dipped in peanut butter, but it just doesn't taste right. Like the peanut butter is bitter? I had it two weeks ago and it was fine so I don't think it went bad....
The weird part is, DH has literally just decided he wanted to go back to school. We figured we could afford him not working and going back full time if I was working, but I don't think we can if I go on mat leave. I wonder if this is the universe saying it's not the right time for him to do this?
I wonder....the last two years I did IUIs at this time almost exactly. The first was successful with an early loss. The second I think was a chemical as I had positives up to 10DPO I think, then beta under 5 a few days later. Maybe we are meant to have a November baby?
And the last thing - I've always wondered if my iron was the reason for our lack of conception. In December I went on a new iron supplement (recommended by a hematologist) as my iron was dangerously low (ferritin and hemoglobin both under 10). In two weeks I will have been on it three months and it should have made a difference. I can't wait to see what the blood test says and if it's higher than it's ever been, then maybe it's a contributing factor?
Sometimes it's something as little as iron that can make a difference. For me it was Royal Jelly/Bee Pollen.
Any dark blue veins on your body any? That's how I always knew.
And the apple/peanut butter thing - it's the apples, not the peanut butter. The skin on the apples (even though I washed them well) just tastes funny....
I can't decide if I feel it anymore. It comes and goes throughout the day. Symptoms like boob soreness is sometimes bad, but then sometimes almost not there so I don't know.....
