Low on the temps, High on the symptoms

And yet I'm still not sure what that means and I'm too chicken to test because I am tired of rejection in the form of a BFN.  I'm at 11 dpo, so technically I could test, but I just can't.  Not yet.

I have been absolutely exhausted for the past four days.  That could be partially because I have been in the car for approximately 14 hours over those days, visited family and friends, helped with my sister's baby shower, and have spent 6 hours visiting my FIL in the hospital.  We have the 4 hour car ride back to Canada tonight. Joy.

I've been extremely cranky and irritable over the past four days as well.  That could also be because of all of the patience I tend to lose with said family and friends and stupid drivers on the road.

I've also been starving.  Like, "oh-my-goodness-I'm-going-to-rip-your-head-off-if-you-try-to-butt-in-front-of-me-in-the-food-line" hungry.  But see, I tend to be hungry when I'm stressed.

And my boobs hurt.  But I'm due to start AF in a few days, and that sometimes is a little telegram she sends me to let me know she's on the way.

And I have a headache.  But hey, it's allergy season, y'all!

All of those symptoms sound promising, yes?  At least somewhat?  Well....my temperatures over the past few days.....not so much.  They've been dropping.  I've slept in 3 different places since Thursday.  That makes it hard to track your temperature....my house in Canada is kept at about 71, my parents' house is kept at about 74 (it's so hard to sleep there), and our Michigan house is averaging around 68.

 So once again, everything going on with me can be explained at least two ways.

I am so sick of all this shit.  Yes, I'm whining, but seriously, I've had enough of scheduling sex, dodging "when are you going to have kids" questions, worrying about symptoms, thinking about TTC, going through 2wws....all of it.



  1. I agree - it's BS and I'm tired of it as well. Hopefully this cycle is a go for you and the madness can end! Praying to see that light at the end of the tunnel for both of us!

  2. I'm 11 dpo today too-- but unlike you, I have no symptoms at all! So in a way that makes it easier not to test, but is still very disappointing. I am still hoping, but not too much...

    Someone I knew as a kid just friended me on facebook. She has FIVE adorable children. Ugh!!!!!!!!!! Not that I want five of them, but still. Can't just ONE person in the whole universe call me "mommy"????

  3. Those symptoms sound really promising, but I'm the queen of self-invented pregnancy symptoms, so I can't weigh in definitively until there's a positive pee stick :) I'd wait at least a few more days to test, but I'm also the biggest chicken when it comes to testing. I wait until 15 dpo.

    I hope this is it for you, Gidget. I'm tired, too, but it would make me happy to see you get your BFP.
