Feelin' Good!

Oct 14, 2009 - 33 comments

I got my first ever Smiley OPK on Monday and I was so excited! It felt almost like getting a positive HPT. I was sick as a dog and Rob was exhausted so we didn't BD the day of the smiley. We did get busy the next evening when he got home from work. I was so sick and he was so tired and we just laughed and said how incredibly unsexy we were both feeling. I was lying there hacking and Rob said how hot that was. He's so funny. I love my husband so much. It's so amazing to be married to your very best friend. He's so good to me. We are so good to each other.

I feel like we pinpointed O so perfectly this cycle! We used to try to BD around the days of O, but we really hit it this time. I took 100 mg of Clomid on cds 2-5 and am going for weekly acupuncture. I have acupuncture today and I'm 1 dpo. I can't help but think it's great timing! I hope it will encourage my 41 year old eggs to do their job!

I'm just feeling good. And I'm feeling positive about getting pregnant very soon. Even though I'm exhausted and feeling really craappy with this virus, I'm feeling encouraged about becoming a Mommy. Rob is going to be such an unbelievable father. When I see him interact with children, my heart fills with such joy. He's so amazing with babies and kids. He really loves children. I can't wait to see him holding our baby. It will be so amazing.

I'm only 1 dpo and the next 10 days to 2 weeks will likely feel like a lifetime, but the time will pass like it always does. I'm going to try not to obsess about every twinge, but it will be difficult as it always is. Just knowing I have all of you to run them by makes me feel so good. This forum is so wonderful and I genuinely treasure all of you.

I'm already analyzing everything. And I'm only 1 dpo! It's not stressing me out, though, I'm having fun. I was just in the kitchen and I dropped my pj bottoms to take a peek to see if I had any cm. How crazy is that?!? I'm such a goofball! BBs started hurting this evening. Cramps are more localized and less severe.

My cramps feel different this cycle. They're much stronger and much deeper. I have had cramps in the tww for months now, but these feel different. My bbs are a little sore, but not killing me or anything.

I will continue to analyze everything as I always do. I've never written my daily symptoms in a journal. It's kind of fun.

1dpo - very strong cramps
2dpo - very strong cramps
3dpo - moderate to strong cramps, bbs are sore
cm is normal to dry

3dpo - incredibly itchy all over all day

Awww! Thanks, Girl! You're SUCH an awesome cheerleader!

Here's today's symptoms:

4dpo - very strong cramps all day. Sharp cramps by left ovary this morning. Was overcome with sadness in Bed, Bath & Beyond. Told my DH I felt like crying for no reason. This is just like before AF, but she ain't due for at least a week. I hope hope hope AF is not coming now!!! This happened to me twice on Clomid. I got AF 4 freakin' days after I O'ed. I'm going to be so pi ssed if that happens again!

I guess we'll see what happens...

Also nausea. I was standing in line at the super market today and felt really pukey. It went away after several seconds.

I'm really worried I'm going to get AF too early. I knew it was a risk taking Clomid again since it did this to me before. Still, I'm really worried.

Also, bbs are sorer than yesterday and I've developed a bunch of little pimples around my mouth and jaw line.

My forehead is oily like it gets before AF, so I'm still worried.

Sharp cramps for a couple of minutes down low and on my left side.

Swooping dizzy-feeling, like the floor moved a little.

Starting to wonder if I have PCOS. I'm seeing my OB on Thursday about it. I've had strong cramps the entire tww for several months.

I feel really cruddy today. It's 5:00 and I'm really tired. I started fading around 4:00.

My cramps are really strong today, sharp-feeling low on my left side by my ovary.

I also feel weepy again.

Starting a headache, too.

Can you implant on 6dpo? Or is that too early?

I don't think it's too early, people get positives as early as 9dpo....I would say those were 6 day implanters! GOOOOOD LUUUCCKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks, Quiche. I just feel like such cra p today. My cramps are really strong and are making my insides feel really tight. I've been really sleepy since about 5:00 this afternoon. I noticed my cm is watery. I had a cramp run down the left side of my back. Weird. Looks like since I O'ed on cd 18, that 12 dpo is the same day AF is due. Does that mean my luteal phase is too short? I feel so stressed about this and I'm just making myself NUTS! I need to distract myself and just CHILL OUT!

- bbs are sorer tonight than they were all day. Now they're sore on the sides and the tops. Nips are not really sore.
- felt wet all day, there was nothing much there when I wiped, but I still feel wet.

Ha! Rach, you're so funny! Tomorrow's a bit early, it's only 10 dpo. 12 dpo is Sunday and the same day AF is due. I'm not feeling so confident any more. It was an exhausting day at work and I am feeling pretty blah right now.

10 dpo - Cramps, very low, below the hair line
           - Wicked sore bbs
           - Sore gums

The sore gums are the ONLY thing giving me any hope at all.

AF is due on Sunday.
