Ask & You Shall Receive

Ya know how just yesterday I was whining that I had no pregnancy symptoms yet? Well, last night I received a bounty - the MOTHER LOAD of pregnancy symptoms.

Disclaimer: Who knows if what I'm about to describe actually points at a possible pregnancy. Every single one of the following symptoms could easily be attributed to anything else under the sun. They probably mean nothing at all, but at this point in the 2WW, I'm taking them as a good sign.

Around 7pm yesterday evening, I started feeling a monster vice-grip headache coming on. I don't know if this actually counts as a possible pregnancy symptom, or just a product of not drinking enough water or being slightly cross-eyed these days. By 7:30, the headache was in full force. I felt awful.

When it was time to insert my Prometrium, that's when I noticed some very very VERY light brown spotting. I don't think I would have ever seen it had I not stuck my finger up my hoo-ha. When I say light, I mean LIGHT. Then I started wondering if the combination of the spotting and the headache, a classic premenstrual symptom for me, meant my period is on the way.

I started to feel really awful. I was experiencing mild "hot" cramps, almost like heartburn in my uterus (I've had these before), as well as some slight nausea (I think due to the headache). I could barely make it through America's Next Top Model before I announced I was headed for bed. By this time, I was feeling like my period could definitely be starting.

After I went to bed, I suddenly got ravenously hungry. I was so hungry, it bordered on nausea and I could barely get to sleep.

When I woke up this morning, I kinda expected to see my period. But it's still not here (THANK YOU GOD). Usually, once I start spotting, it's a slippery slope to a full blown bleed. So far I've managed to stave it off, if only by force of will. I want to believe this all means something, and part of me does, but the fact is I've been pumping myself full of tons of hormones and based on that - nothing means nothing and anything means anything. But I must admit, it's encouraging. Anything's possible at this point.

Hmmmmm. You've heard of "implanation spotting", right?
Sounds promising! (Fingers crossed!!)

Hormones are a bitch.
I am hoping every single ounce of weirdness you are enduring is BABY related. Good freaking lord, cannot believe you are going to have to go through this for another week!!!

On a TV note, I was so happy to they finally sent Bianca home on ANTM! She annoyed the dickens out of me.

*hugs*

Sarah - Oh I would love to believe it's implantation spotting but isn't 5dp5dt too late for that? Maybe not, I don't know?

Mel - Me too! I cheered when they sent Bianca home. Not a fan of her at all. Nice to see some model justice!

Don't worry TOO much with the spotting as far as possible bad stuff goes. The supplements can cause irritation that causes that too. I had it. And implantation is something like 5-10dpo (usually average of 6 or 7). I have no idea how that translates in IVF terms. :)

Fingers crossed here too!

I would think that you would add the 5 days of in vitro embryo development to the "days post transfer" to get the traditional "DPO" number. So I would think that "6DP5DT" ("6 days post 5 day transfer") would translate to 11DPO, etc. So... if you had spotting last night, that is kinda like spotting at 10DPO. To me, that sounds promising for implantation spotting!! I sure hope so, anyway. :)

Sounds like pregnancy to me. I had mild cramping, a headache, nausea, and exhaustion the day the kid implanted - 10dpt!

When do you take a blood test? I ask because none of my pee sticks came up positive...

I plan to POAS and have my beta on the same day - Wednesday December 12th.

Until then, I'll just keep buggin'!!!

So Freakin' exciting!!

It's not so much the symptoms themselves, but the swing from nothing to everything that has me hopeful.

Fingers crossed for you!!
