Thanks so much everyone for your well wishes! I really appreciate all the positivity! I’m not going to get into the tweaking argument or that blue dyes are good or bad. Andy was upset last night and said I shouldn’t post anymore sticks online. He sees my comments. I told him that people mean well, they are trying to be helpful, and it’s not stressing me out. He’s just concerned that I’ll get upset, and it won’t be good for me. There’s always been debates in the past about my pee sticks, which is why I don’t post them on TWW anymore. It doesn’t really matter what people think though. This is my blog, and I will keep peeing and posting. 🙂 Plus, Andy and I can see the tests in real life – so we know what we’re looking at. I only tweak them to hopefully show other people what I’m seeing.
Anyway, let’s talk symptoms. I’ve had some, but most of them could be chalked up to the progesterone suppositories I use. I’ve been peeing like a maniac, especially at night and in the morning! Last night, I got up twice to pee. I’ve probably peed 5 times since I got up, too. I’ve had this before and not been pregnant though. I’m having crazy hot flashes. Even in the mornings when it’s cool. It feels like my face is going to burn off. I’m very tired – had to take a nap yesterday evening and still slept 8 hours overnight. I felt like I was coming down with something Thursday night into Friday, but today I feel okay. I just feel worn out and out of it. I think I might have been *just* implanting on Thursday (12dpo) because I had weird pinches and light cramps. My temp stayed the same (a little lower at 12dpo & 13dpo – maybe a late implantation dip), but it has gone up a lot today. My sinuses are jacked up, and my BBs just started getting a little tender as of yesterday. I love it all though, if it means there’s actually a little bean in there!!!
I thought it was funny because I bought pads Thursday evening right before I came home and POAS. And bam, there was a faint positive. Plus, I had been making plans to make a special trip to the store in a couple of days to get a bunch of gluten-free stuff to start a new diet for my new cycle. I never thought that the dream I had earlier this week – of getting a BFP on a blue dye – would actually come true! haha! I guess that’s why I decided to test with one of those though. And every test since Thursday evening (12dpo) has been positive. I’m still having trouble with the FRERs. Now they all just need to get darker – please God! It’s been less then 48 hours, so I’m hoping so much they will start progressing now. I can’t even imagine this really being real. I am feeling doubtful about everything – because of all my past experiences, but I’m *trying* to think positive thoughts. It’s so hard though because I had lines exactly like this before with a beta of 6….so that is worrying me. I’ll get a beta on Tuesday if they are still positive. I am already taking 2 injections (instead of 1) of Lovenox, by Dr. KK’s recommendation. *See my pee stick page for all my sticks*
