6dp5dt - I can still find my marbles

If I look hard enough anyway.  I'm trying to stay positive, but you know how it goes, sometimes you just have those moments of doubt.  Those moments where you're sure that like everything else before now you're going to get dumped flat on my face.  In any case, I've been keeping busy, and trying not to get too worked up.  I've done a lot of reading, and playing of video games.  Last night I took my best friend out to dinner and shopping for chocolate and kitchen implements (I'm now the proud owner of an 11" tart pan with a removable bottom.

Symptoms (that may or may not be all in my head):
  • Cramping - Not in my head, I've been cramping since Thursday.
  • Sore boobs (over the weekend.)  Then they got better :(
  • Jakobe said that my boobs were bigger, but I couldn't see/feel a difference.
  • Tired - But that was just yesterday and might be meaningless, I was falling asleep at dinner at about 7:30 last night.
  •  Increased Heart rate: 90bpm while lying in bed, 103 BPM while sitting at my desk (and I know that's really high even for my sedentary fat ass.)

I feel like I'm just picking up on little things that don't have any meaning, and I'm worried becasue my breasts stopped being sore, Like maybe embry started and then couldn't keep going. 

I could POAS today, or tomorrow or even Thursday, but I don't want to know.  Okay I do want to know, but If it's negative I would like to go on thinking I'm pregnant for as long as possible.  I did have my progesterone test done yesterday, and it came back just fine at 21.7.

In the meanwhile we have a plan for my not drinking on Thanksgiving.  I'm buying myself some sparkling cider, and Jakobe is going to drink.  I'm the Designated Driver this time.  Honestly - I don't think it's going to work.  But it's a plan anyway.  I just don't think I want to be talking about it with all the aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, Etc.  

I just have to make it until Friday.


  1. The symptoms, especially the cramping, sound really promising. I wouldn't worry about the boob soreness/lack thereof. Most of it in the beginning is the meds, then if you're pregnant, it switches over a couple of days after implantation to a more general sensitivity/soreness that comes and goes. Your lack of soreness all the time may be a good thing :)

    I haven't thought about the whole alcohol thing. Oh crap. It is definitely too early to be telling people I'm preggers. Oh poop. My husband often mixes the drinks, I'll tell him to keep me in virgin cocktails and maybe no one will be the wiser?

  2. I hope this is it for you. I think the boob soreness definitely doesn't need to be a negative sign as symptoms can come and go throughout pregnancy.

  3. It is so hard analyzing symptoms. I hope the rest of the 2ww go quickly!!!

  4. I agree that everything sounds promising! I have everything crossed for you!!!!

  5. it's such a rollercoaster...keeping everything crossed for you!!

  6. I always find it so tricky to read symptoms... hope yours are leading up to a BFP :)) FXd for you xoxo
