Today it is dreay out. We got a lot of rain and there is flooding around the area. I feel dreary myself. I had a good day of volunteering yesterday, went grocery shopping for the week, and then did some cooking at home. It was the first day I got up early and volunteered since I got my cold. Today I’m feeling it. That may make me sound wimpy, but oh well. I want to stay in my pajamas for a while and just lay low today. I have been trying not to take decongestants, to ween myself off of them, but it hasn’t happened yet. This morning I woke up with my right ear hurting because all the fluid traveled to my ear. Oh fun. Yes, I’m whiny this morning.
I’m 8dpo today and as each day passes I feel more and more convinced that I’m not pregnant. Yes, I still have some hope, but it’s getting pushed farther back. I have little cramps here and there, but not much else. I know that a lot of people don’t get symptoms as you guys keep reminding me (thanks), but I’m still not convinced. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see. I also have a couple of questions. Since I use ovidrel does that mean I will always ovulate my follicles? Since I use progesterone suppositories does that mean that they will increase my progesterone levels no matetr what? Just wondering.
I at least have some things to look forward to that will hopefully get me through the rest of this 2ww. I applied for a neat sounding job where I volunteer. I mentioned it to the head person I report to and she sent an email to the department the job is in. So maybe that will help me. Also, on saturday we are going over to my in-laws. I will be helping my MIL with making holiday cookies. Each year she makes huge batches of many different kinds of cookies. She will be making my favorite – date balls – especially so that I can eat some while helping. Yum.
As the drugs have been kicking in I have started to feel a little better. I started thinking of my tortoise status. If it took me to day 30 to be able to use my ovidrel would it be possible that my body is also really slow in getting to the implantation stage and showing me any symptoms? Who knows, just a thought.
