The symptoms have to mean something!!!! Right?????

So we are almost to a week since I took the trigger shot. And, I have never felt more pregnant in my life!!! Even when I was pregnant with the ectopic... I didn't feel like this!

  • My boobs hurt so much I don't even have to poke them to see if they still hurt!
  • I am peeing like 500 times a day (at least every 15-30 minutes).
  • I have needed a nap the last 3 days... and am still exhausted.
  • I have been craving hamburgers and bananas (by the way, I HATE bananas and have been a vegetarian for much of the last 2 years).
  • The thought of some foods or smells makes me nausious.
  • I have had MAJOR mood swings... much to my husbands suffering.
I went to the dr. this morning. He is worried about hyperstimulation of my ovaries. Anyway, he did an u/s and said my ovaries look good. He saw some fluid, but said it could be from Oing. Then he took a blood test and my weight. He said my iron is high. So, he wants me to come back in on Wednesday. However, my weight was down!!! It was at 173. I swear metformin makes all the differance in the world!!!! I have lost 20-30 lbs. from it!

Anyway, the waiting continues. For now, I'm trying to eat as healthy as I can... rest when I can... and try to get a little bit of low impact exercise.

Courtney, I have my fingers crossed for both of us. Not only are we in the 2ww together, we are exact buddies. When will you test? I have been having lots of symptoms, not quite the same as when I was pregnant 2 cycles ago though. I'm anxious to test.

Courtney said...

I think I will probably test Sat. or Sun. I may get a bfn then, but I'm ready to chance it. I feel so positive this time!

Good luck!!!!

Good luck with the waiting, I really hope that this is "it" for you. (If it isn't know that we are here for you too).

And congrats on the weight loss! How long has it taken you to lose that? I hope it works for me like that!

Fingers crossed!
