Half Way!!

Feb 06, 2012 - 1 comments

It's been one week, with one week to go of this grueling TWW!  It actually hasn't been that bad, but I'm sure this week will be agonizing!  
Most of last week I stayed in bed relaxing.  I've read what other RE's have said all over about rest afterwards.  Some say none, others say 3-4 days.  For me it was more of all the pain I felt from the egg collection that made me want to rest, plus being cautious couldn't hurt...right!  Once I started to feel better I was a bit antsy and wanting to get out, so I think it was good to just listen to my body and take it easy.  
I'm trying my hardest to not be a big sign seeker!  But it's just so tempting!!  My sister didn't have any symptoms until a week after her missed period when the nausea kicked-in.  But mind you both of her pregnancies came the first month she tried.  Whereas women who have to wait analyze every little twinge!  Speaking of twinges, I have a lot of them.  I've also had cramping, stuffy nose, but also very dry nose and throat, and very thirsty.  Been very sleepy!  And very hungry.  As well as light-headedness and dizzy spells.  Been getting up at 3am for a wee.  And I have had some food aversions, which is a bit odd for me.  All of those symptoms have been new in the last few days.  But I've been very bloated almost since I started the stims, and still am.  And my breasts are very tender but that started with the trigger shot.
There ya have it!  I thought it'd be good to write down what I'm going through no matter what the outcome.  Oh, and I should mention that the weather changed pretty dramatically this last week, with major temperature drops and snow over the weekend, so that could be to blame for my nose and throat problems.  Also, for my luteal support they had me do two pregnyl injections instead of progesterone because my oestrogen was on the low side.  So that could also still be to blame for any pregnancy-like symptoms.  Not sure when that wears off...
Only 7 more sleeps until I can test!!
