Hubby doesn't want to get his hopes up
but I can't stop thinking about this. Any insight would be helpful.
My "fertile dates" combining 2 calculators stretched from May 19 to May 25. We were on vacation in China, so I was able to be less stressed than normal. (Note on stress -- I don't feel stressed. I'm a planner. So everyone around me tells me to reduce my stress, but I don't really "get" what they are claiming is stress. I love plotting out possibilities, planning for future events, etc.)
Anyway, normally, during my "fertile dates", I will notice a mucous-like plug with a red dot inside it. I've always figured that was an unfertilized egg. This month, I did not experience this.
When we got back from China on the 26th, I felt normal. Since the 27th, I have had to pee a lot. I always assumed the peeing happened when the baby was bigger. But I noticed people saying it was sign of implantation. Weird. I haven't had any spotting or cramping. I did have nausea late at night on Memorial Day. But the big thing for me is that I have been craving cheese. I'll eat an ounce or two and as soon as I finish eating it, my body is telling me MORE, NOW!
AF isn't due til the 4th and I'm supposed to get an immunization on the 7th, so I figured I would just wait until the dr's office tests me prior to okaying me for the shot.
I don't feel any changes in my breasts -- not size, color, or sensation. And this is the first month in a long time that I've felt non-gassy. (I have a very, very slight case of Irritable Bowel -- I call it Moody Bowel -- and the main culprits are onions and fiber. I can skip the onions, but I need the fiber.)
Anyway, I just kinda wanted to detail my "symptoms" to someone other than my journal, so that I could get an outside opinion. Hubby takes the negative results harder that he wants me know, so I understand why he doesn't want to talk about "maybes". But I'm pretty isolated here. I know plenty of women on the delivery side -- either just gave birth, are due any minute, or are in their last trimester --, and I know plenty of women who don't want to get pregnant, but I have no TTC friends to share with.
Edit: Oh yeah, sleeping. For the past week, I have not been able to get out of bed before 10 am. I set the alarm, I bully myself, but it's 10 am before I make myself stagger out of bed. And I'm constantly yawning!
