Today is 11 DP IUI. As I do every cycle, I have been trying to refrain from over-analyzing every little thing going on in my body. . . . but as I'm sure anyone reads this knows, it's a little difficult. It's even harder when you have a husband like MM who asks at least every other third day or so whether you "feel different."
Looking back, I have had a lot of general fatigue in the 2WW during every cycle in which I've used the prog.est.erone gel. Oddly, though, I really haven't been that tired this 2WW. I did have a migraine yesterday (after posting about how much my headaches have decreased recently; I tell ya, the Universe does like to f$%^ with me), and headaches can also be a side effect of prog.est.erone. (Migraines are also triggered by hormonal fluctuations. . . . which makes me think "Hmmm.")
I have also had the odd, occasional crampy feeling in my lower abdomen. Could be my uterus, could be gas--who knows. My breasts are not generally sore or swollen, as they have been in some past cycles, but I have had a few out-of-blue, one-sided twinges of pain. Both of these symptoms could be prog.est.erone-related, too.
To me, these last few days before testing are the hardest for me. I am at a point where I might conceivably start having some symptoms of very early pregnancy if, in fact, I am pregnant. Implantation might have already occurred, or be occurring, if it is going to happen this cycle. But it's too soon to really EXPECT symptoms or to be able to take a HPT and rely on its accuracy. (My mother and sister have both told me they had zero symptoms until at least 6 weeks, and with my chemical pregnancy last summer, I had no symptoms. In fact, I thought I'd had a "normal" period.)
So I do the only thing I can. Wait. Impatiently.
I am glad that I am pretty busy at the moment. Not having time to goo.gle "very early pregnancy symptoms" for the twentieth time is a good thing. ;-)
