Two Week Wait SymptomsThanks again for your kind comments. We saw a little jelly baby and a heartbeat, but as the midwife kindly pointed out, there is still a long way to go. Not too long though, we get to have another peek next Tuesday.
Still feeling ok, a bit sick if I don't eat for a while, but fine when I do. Usually very tired by mid-afternoon, but who works after 4pm anyway?
I realise that I've let down the googlers. The URL of this blog is misleading and generates a lot of click-throughs for those searching for 2ww symptoms. So if that is you, here is a bona fide list of 2ww symptoms that resulted in a BFP. Temps in degrees Celsius. IUI with HCG shot.
1dpo: 36.34, ovulation pain and EWCM
3dpo: 35.90, big temp drop below coverline (fallback temp), EWCM
4dpo: 36.40, temp rise back above coverline, creamy CM
5dpo: 36.55, temp rise, small amount of creamy CM
6dpo: 36.62, temp rise, tiny amount of creamy CM in afternoon, slightly tender breasts, heartburn, fairly severe nausea before eating lunch
7dpo: 36.76, temp rise, small amount of creamy CM, tender breasts, heartburn
8dpo: 36.11, huge temp drop below coverline, still had tender breasts but assumed it was because AF was imminent, waited for spotting; I had been testing daily so I would know when the HCG from the trigger shot had left my system - today the line was the sort only visible to crazy ladies, ie probably not there at all
9dpo: 36.58, temp shot back up above the coverline (the mythical implantation dip??!?!??!), no sore boobs, nausea, heartburn, cramps or anything remotely resembling a pregnancy symptom, microscopic line on HPT (still aware that it could be leftover trigger HCG)
10dpo: 37.01, definite pink line on HPT, even visible to a man
11do: 37.04, darker line on HPT
12dpo: 36.78, even darker line on HPT
Apart from some very mild "symptoms" in the first half of the 2ww (we all have them, every single month), I had nothing to report until at least week 6, when I started feeling a little hungry and tired. Even now, at 7w4d and with a thumping heartbeat, I am hard pushed to find anything pregnant about me at times. So don't despair if you're 9dpo and don't "feel" pregnant, there's enough despairing that goes on in this business, try and save it for at least 11dpo. Good luck!!!
