Symptom Watch 2012 - 3dp3dt edition

Nada. Zip, zero, zilch.

This morning, I woke up, and my first thought was "I feel empty". I guess I did not realize my belly felt heavy over the weekend (although, that was probably not a symptom, but more likely the delicious food D bought and served me around the clock), but today I feel emptier than I did this weekend. In fact, I feel perfectly normal.

Now mind you, when both my ovaries were the size of grapefruits during the stims, I did not feel anything either, so I might not be the most in tune with my body. I also know the equivalent of 6dpo is not necessarily known for being a symptompalooza. But regardless, it would be nice to feel something.

Evolutionarily, I hope someday we get to the point where the minute you are knocked up, a bright neon sign blares over your head (or maybe on your belly). While awkward, it sure would make things a lot less stressful than wondering.

  1. I had no symptoms what so ever (and we were pregnant...it was a chemical but we were pregnant initially). Sending you all the positive vibes in the world and praying you start to feel something to help reassure you that they are in there and implanting and growing!! :)

    1. Thanks! Isn't it crazy what infertility does to us? That I am begging to feel pukey and have sore boobs? But oh how happy that would make me (of course, the cynic in me would probably just dismiss it as the progesterone anyway!)

  2. I would love to have a bright neon sign! I hate wondering what's going on in there! I actually just said to my husband yesterday, what do you think is going on right now?! His response was..I am going to look into buying you your own ultrasound machine! haha if only he knew it wasn't that easy!

    1. I think I am going to wait until Sunday to test... that is two days before my beta. But I can't decide. I kind of want to ride this out as long as possible (but know there is no way in the world I will wait until the phone call from the beta).

  4. The TWW is the worst. All the spot checking symptoms. Oh I think I feel a tugging sensation, oh do my boobs hurt let me keep poking them and see or let me examine my tp for implantation spotting. Ok maybe that's just me?!? Haha. Hope to see your BFP soon!

    1. Definitely not just you. My TP goes under close inspection starting at 7DPO every cycle. See why the neon sign would be so much easier?

  5. I remember seeing an alien movie many many years ago. The only thing I remember from the actual movie was that at the very moment sperm met alien egg, she knew she was pregnant. I find myself thinking of that often. If only.

    Visiting from ICLW. I'll be thinking of you as you wait. Because you are not an alien.

    1. That. is. awesome! I feel like that movie HAD to be written by a woman (and probably an infertile one at that!).

  6. Hi from ICLW! Ohhh I so remember those feelings. I was just there in May. Feel free to peruse my IVF timeline to compare notes if that will help. Other than symptoms of complications, I didnt' really have any pregnancy symptoms until past 10 weeks! Wishing you all the best!

    1. Thank you, I always love to hear from people who did not have symptoms. It gives me hope every time I am yelling at my uterus, "cramp, damn you, cramp!"

    1. Thank you. I am relieved to be halfway done with the tww. The only problem is, the really crazy-inducing part is the one that is left.

  8. I hope you get some great news in the next few days. A big neon sign would be excellent.

    1. right?? Now we just a couple million years for that to evolve...and probably a more relevant evolutionary reason besides "the tww drives me crazy". But a girl can dream.

  9. I don't have anything good to say about the 2WW. Hang in there!

  10. Haha! Love the neon sign idea...as long as it has an invisibility button so it's not flashing during my meetings at work. ;)

    1. Hah - I can get behind the invisibility idea. Otherwise we would have these bellies that would glow through our shirts...all fertile women would be something like glowworms!

  11. I LOVE the neon sign idea! That would make things so much easier. I am already dreading my upcoming 2ww...so stressful! Fingers crossed for a smooth (and crazy-free) rest of your 2ww. Can't wait to hear some good news from you!
