I decided to document some experiences that aren't covered in the tracker. I am 7 wks as of tomorrow and still dont feel that I'm pregnant vibe. I'm chalking it up to all the stress and heartache over the past year that hubby and I have gone through to have this baby. I guess I don't want to count my chickens before they hatch...so to speak. I do get excited and giddy and emotional in my OB appointments but then I just jump back into regular me mode.

I also have virtually no symptoms. I do find myself fatigued daily, ready for a nap by 3 and am in bed before 10.  My breasts feel full and I've already gone up a cup size in my bras. My nipples are sore but only to the touch or w pressure (like when I lay on my stomach). I have mild cramps, more like aching, but not daily. It feels more like a tightening across my pelvis. And that's it! I feel lucky but also strangely guilty about it.

We were evacuated for hurricane sandy, so I've felt a little irritated and antsy but otherwise my mood has been in check. We go back to the IVF/RE Dr tomorrow for one last visit before I'm discharged to my regular OB. That is sure to be bittersweet.
