I am driving myself nuts trying to symptom spot. I have read so many posts saying "people feel this or feel that". I feel pretty much nothing. Is this too early to feel anything?? People say their CM changes or becomes plentiful .. mine is pretty much non-existent except for maybe progesterone cream coming out.
How do you stay positive when your mind, body and soul tells you that you aren't pregnant? Or if I do feel/wish like I "could" be pregnant -- then the fear of disappointment turns that feeling around.
One last note, it doesn't help that every person that I know is pregnant. I almost feel guilty for envying them so much.
Why can't I just have sex and get pregnant like all of them?
Awww I'm sorry Symptom spotting DEFINITELY does no good!!! There are COUNTLESS women who have no symptoms at all so definitely don't count yourself as out!
I got a BFP after my 1st IUI (sadly ended in m/c 2 wks ago) but the only thing I had around 9dpiui was slight cramping... I had NO sore boobs, no nausea, none of that. I started to feel a little worn down as time progressed.. but just because you don't have glaring symptoms doesn't mean anything. Best of luck and definitely be optimistic- it's still very early!!!
Don't go by the symptoms, I still have pretty much none. Apart from light cramping on & off & sore boobs, but I always get that during a 2ww anyway so that wasn't much different for me. Most pregnant women say that symptoms don't kick in until 5 or 6 weeks on average, but everyone is different!
It can totally make a difference what test you use hun... I got the faintest of faint lines on an Internet cheapie dip test (at 11dpo)- but honestly thought I was seeing things. So I took another pink dye test I had left over from the month before- and it was BFN! No 2nd line at ALL... and I looked HARD! lol. I didn't really see a line that made me think I was actually prego till 13dpo! And backed it up with First Response EPT (6 days sooner one).
I know how hard the TWW is... I had SO SO many of them in our TTC Journey. You can drive yourself nutty for sure! Just keep as positive as you can and know this WILL happen. It's sucky it can't just happen on it's own-- but no matter what, you'll be SO happy when it does happen that all the crap you have been through will be well worth it I'm sure you know that! And while you wait, rejoice in the family you have now.
Brief update 11DPIUI --- yes I'm torturing myself, I tested today again (I have about 12 tests left)... still
I remember when I was trying to get pregnant with my 1st (as you see my signature it took 6 years). I used to think "Man, I'd be happy with just one baby". It's amazing how your perception changes once you have one. The need becomes overwhelming to have a sibling for her. My mom passed away (she was only 57) and I never had realized how awesome it was to have a brother and sister as support. Without them I would've gone crazy. Not that this situation will happen necessarily but it's so nice to be able to provide my daughter the support she may need. It would be horrible if I couldn't give her that. She so deserves the world.
Thank you all for the support ... I can't tell you how it makes this journey so much better KNOWING there are people out there following/ahead of me in this path. Thank you!!
