Today I am 8dpo or rather almost finished with 8dpo. Implantation is supposed to start at 6dpo and can last up to 10dpo. I am not really having much in way of symptoms. Maybe something small here and there, but they all can be attributed to something else. Stomach cramps and weird twinges in stomach occasionally – ibs. Little bit of acne – progesterone suppositories. Hormonal when tired – I’m tired and the progesterone suppositories again. That’s about all that is going on. Each day that goes past and I barely have any symptoms I am starting to get sad. I know that I still have possibly six days to get symptoms and some women don’t get them at all this early, but it’s hard. When I’m at work and busy it’s not bad, but when I get home and have down time as each day passes I think about it more and more. I have so much hope for this cycle because Follistim helped me to ovulate at a semi regular time for the first time and that I think I felt ovulation. I know that if I have to try again it will be ok, because we found a drug that I do well with, but I just want things to work this cycle and to not have to go through trying again.
So I guess all I can do is stay busy and wait. The good thing about staying busy is work. I found out recently that there is a side project my boss wants me to work on that will give me extra hours for a couple of weeks which will be great in terms of salary and paid days off. It also allows me to work with the computer program I enjoy again so I’m looking forward to it. Hopefully that will keep my brain busy.
