I feel like if I say it out loud, I'll jinx it.
To the people I've told, I've said "I took a test (or 3) and it was positive." Not, "I'm pregnant."
It just feels really, really weird.
I haven't give you pictures yet, so here are the 3 good ones. The line is definitely getting darker and today it started showing up immediately, yay!
I know it's super blurry, but Mr. GG is out of town, so I was on dog duty and still had to leave at my normal time...the kids don't wait. So I had to just take one. It's pretty clear though!
And luckily, I do have some symptoms to help keep me believing.
Mainly, cramps. I definitely know what people mean when they say they felt like their period was going to start. The cramps are slightly different and more focused in my uterus, but I definitely feel stuff. Some days (or hours) it's just like a mild vague pressure, other times it feels more like AF cramps. Some times, it's pretty strong.
My boobs have been sore since 2 days after transfer, but not nearly as painful as that second day. Although it DOES hurt like a bitch when Stella steps on one. : )
I also get really light-headed when I get up quickly. I guess that's common, but I need to keep working on hydrating and remember to get up more slowly.
And I cry a lot. Whenever basically anything happens on TV. It doesn't matter what.
I also noticed the a lot of blue veins on my boobs last night.
I know some of these can be attributed to the progesterone (which is going much better by the way...granny panties are a must), so I'm mostly focusing on the cramping and the positive tests to keep me feeling the P word.
Beta is Friday. I'm already starting to google numbers even though I know that a bit crazy.
Husband is across the country until Saturday.
AP test is next Wednesday.
Sister shower #1 is Saturday.
Sister shower #2 is next Saturday. (That's the one I'm hosting.)
Waiting, waiting, waiting and try to relax.
