Since we found out we were infertile, I have not put much stock into how my body was feeling after our 3 IUI’s and even our first cycle of IVF. I haven’t analyzed how I was feeling and convinced myself I was having symptoms of early pregnancy. I have really approached it as we will just wait and see what happens. After our first cycle of IVF, I did have sore boobs, but I just chalked that up to being from the progesterone and estrogen. Other than that, I didn’t even feel much at all.
This cycle, for whatever reason, my body feels different and my mind is going right along with it. I think I’m pregnant. Of course if I’m actually not pregnant then I will feel silly about this statement later, but I felt the need to just put it out there. I have been unusually exhausted this week, which I understand can just be from stress and working so much. But I have been stressed and working a lot since the beginning of the school year and I have not felt this exhausted. This week, I’ve gone to be early every night. And by early I mean before 9pm. Actually, on Tuesday, I fell asleep on the couch at 6:30pm and my husband woke me up at 7:30pm and told me to just go to bed (it may or may not have been due to my snoring interrupting his TV watching…ha!). I slept 11 hours that night. On Thursday, I had some brownish spotting when I wiped 1x. That is the only time I had it, but I read that implantation bleeding occurs between 48 hours and 5 days after a 5 day transfer. And I had my FET on Monday, so that falls right into the window. My boobs are sore, but that is definitely from the progesterone and estrogen b/c they have been sore the entire time I’ve been on the meds. I’m also emotional in the sense that I am on the verge of crying pretty much all day long. I don’t mean that I feel like crying every moment, but that the simplest thing can make me get a bit choked up and ready to cry. Luckily, I have been able to keep myself together at work. And the last symptom I am feeling is a full feeling in my uterus. I’m not sure if that is the right way to describe it, but last night especially I had this uncomfortable almost heavy feeling below my stomach. I’m not sure if anyone would qualify this as a symptom, but it is definitely a different feeling than every other month we were trying to get pregnant.
So I’d be excited to hear from others. I know that all the things I listed above could all be due to the meds or just my imagination, but I just have this feeling I’m pregnant. And I am fully aware that if I am wrong, this will be the hardest negative beta result to receive.
