And kinda crampy in the normal AF way.
well that sucks! i’ll have to see if this actually turns into a real period though because my mom had light irregular “periods” with me throughout the first half of her pregnancy. LE SIGH.
Uterus is cramping/aching, but not in an AF type fashion at all, my pubic bone is aching, and my hip joints/bones are too. I feel so funny! And NO AF TODAYYYY.
I just want to know.
I can’t help but hope.
And I don’t really feel like she’s coming yet either. I think I probably just O’d late and i’m over analyzing EVERYTHAAANG. Which is what women are best at, right?
My boobies are a bit tender-tingly/itchy and seem fuller, but that could be anything i suppose! Only time will tell.
WHAT IS THIS MADNESS?!
So I took a test 2 days ago at what I THINK is 9dpo. I’m not temping, because I know once I start doing that, I’ll become obsessive and then it won’t be fair to Dakota as we won’t be on the same page, and also because I’m not disciplined enough haha. I’m the same way with anything I have to do daily… just not something I can do.
Anyways, so when I took it, I saw the FAINTEST OF FAINT FAINT FAINTTTT lines, so faint I really couldn’t tell if there was color to it or not. I really had to strain to look at it. I looked at it way past the time limit and there WAS A LINE WITH COLOR TO IT. Very small and faint still, but color nonetheless. I know everything after the time frame is invalid, but that’s never happened to me before, and I pretty much test every single cycle. So I thought, huh, perhaps I’ll test again on 11dpo (today).
So again, same faintest of faint faint faint lines that I can’t tell if it even has color to it or not it’s so faint. I’m gonna check it again here in an hour just to see if it does the same thing. I know it’s only 11dpo but I’m thinking this just wasn’t my cycle.
Either that, or I ovulated about a week later than I thought, around when I thought I was feeling implantation. I typically have ovulation pains when I ovulate, but the time I’m assuming I ovulated I didn’t, I just had an increase/watery CM (i’ve never had EWCM as far as I can remember) and i was feeling particularly frisky so I assumed I was then. However I did noticed the increase continued, so there is definitely a chance what I thought was implantation was actually ovulation. In which case we had sexy time just about 36 hours before I felt the pinching in my left side.
That wouldn’t totally NOT make sense. My cycles used to be a strict 35 days. Every single time. Recently they’ve been more around the 27/28 day, but if I did ovulate when I felt the pinches, that would fit my typical 35 day cycle. So who knows! If that’s the case, I’m only 5dpo!
We’ll see if my period comes this weekend. If not, I’ll wait another week and test again… but who knows. I don’t have that strong of willpower.
Could I be any more longwinded?
After about 4 minutes there was definitely something else there, however it was the FAINTEST of faint, so faint i couldn’t tell if there was color to it or not. If no color, that just means an evap line, aka negative. Color of course means positive. I’ve seen evap lines though and this certainly did not look like what I’ve seen.
I had to really strain and have the light hit it just right, but honestly I should’ve just waited. I’ll wait two more days so, if I am, the hCG levels can double up and hopefully I’ll have my answer. :)
Still though… I know i’m just being wayyyy too hopeful.
If implantation happened two and a half days ago like it felt like/I think I did, I’m wondering when I can pee on a stick! Of course I should just wait til I miss my period, save the money, heartbreak, etc, BUT IT’S JUST SO HARD!
Last evening I started peeing every few hours, and it was quite a bit. I don’t remember drinking that much water?! It also is I’m sure too early to be experiencing that, however I did a little research online and found a few women who said they started with frequent urination pretty early on.
IF I’M NOT KNOCKED UP I’M GOING TO FEEL SO DUMB. Seriously though… I probably did drink a lot of water and don’t remember it. Those sharp pinches I felt a few days ago was probably just gas. The actual gas I experienced last night was probably from… that pasta I ate? I’ve never had pasta give me that much gas before… And my aching hips and thighs probably hurt just because… I played with my dog two days ago… yeah. Those all have to be the reasons.
And I’m just being overly in-tune with my body, and overly hopeful :(
EDIT: Also, what was up with those stabby feelings in my pelvic bones last night? sldkjghldfg
It start in my hip joints and now it’s gone down to my thighs and knees and almost in my calves too. Just very achey, as if I’ve gone up and down steps a lot in a day, not as much as working out.
Very interesting considering that’s something I can click on countdowntopregnany.com… :)
FINGERS CROSSED PEOPLE!
I completely forgot I had to set it to where i could receive messages… duh. Can’t wait to meet everybody, and help eachother out on this AWFUL EFFING TWO WEEK WAIT!
kill me now. patience… i do not have.
First of all, the night of 6(-8)dpo/the beginning of 7(-9)dpo, i had a sharp pinch on my lower left side, followed by duller pinches for about another hour or so, thus going into my 7(-9)dpo. I’m not sure which of the three days I ovulated, however I’m leaning more towards the 26th or 27th rather than the 25th. Anyways, now today is September 4th and I’ve definitely felt a bit off today. EXTREME fatigue, I’m about to take a nap right now and slept til about noon, which is pretty rare for me. I’m quite congested however I do live in the mountains and it could just be allergies.
Earlier I felt as if I was DYING from hunger and we went to Taco Bell (something that always always always agrees with or settles my stomach… weird i know), and I could barely eat my third taco, and afterwards I was quite nauseous and I’m still uncomfortably full. I’ve also had a dull headache all day.
All you mommas, soon-to-be mommas, and TTCers… did yall have any pinching during implantation? what about symptoms a couple days after you think implantation occurred? I’d love to get to know all of you as I embark on this journey!
of course, my cycle could’ve been whacky and the twinges i was feeling the other night COULD’VE been a late ovulation. i wouldn’t put it past my ovaries, they don’t get the meaning of haste. if that’s the case however we bd’d the night before so that’s a good thing :)
I’ve talked about my hair. We all know I love my boyfriend.
Know what else I love? babies. I want babies. I want a baby now. I have the mother of all baby fevers that anyone has ever had ever. I constantly wait around and see if I start my period. I am constantly hyper aware of any twinges, cramps, anything to do with my cycle: not just my period, my cycle. I try and keep track of when I’m fertile, when I’m not.
Don’t get me wrong, I NEVER EVER EVER do anything to help promote a pregnancy happening. We practice birth control, however sometimes it’s flawed because we are not perfect human beings.
Last night, we had sex for the first time in almost 4 weeks. We’re not having any problems, things have just been going on in our life that have prevented us from getting it on more often. Needless to say, he didn’t last that long. In fact, it happened so fast I didn’t even know he finished until afterwards and he wasn’t… well. Ready for action. I looked down and was like, Why?! He said, I came! Inside me. No birth control used.
I honestly didn’t think he wouldn’t have pulled out. He always does. And honestly, he didn’t seem that worried. Not that he didn’t know the possibility of what could happen, just that he wasn’t fretting over it, as if he wouldn’t be that upset if it did happen.
So I guess we shall see what happens in the next couple of weeks and if my monthly visitor comes or not. Of course I’m hoping she won’t. I’m always hoping she won’t. But like I said, we do practice birth control, and the mature, responsible side of me wants it to happen once we’re married and completely financially stable and all that.
But I know that if it does happen sooner rather than later, it wouldn’t be a bad thing. It wouldn’t be a mistake. It would be unplanned, but a blessing nevertheless.
And this is what I mean by posting things I wouldn’t want most of my friends to see. But who cares… this is my Tumblr. I’ll talk about what I want to talk about, and if I feel like I have a reason to be concerned if my Shark Week will be coming or not, then dammit, I’m gonna talk about it!
I may have tweaked this a bit for my main blog. By “we practice birth control”, I mean sometimes he pulls out, and if he doesn’t it’s not really a huge deal either. To be honest, he’s made a few comments (back in the beginning of our relationship) that was very anti baby. Now? He talks about “when he has a son” or “his son” or something along those lines. Hes thinking about it too. It’s an unspoken mutual agreement between us that it won’t be a bad thing if it happens. We’ll be happy either way, but he knows my love for children. He talks about it all the time.
It’s as if he wants me to think about procreation more than I already do ;)
