Not Retarded

So, today is peak + 15. I have no symptoms. My bbies are normal. I haven't even had any pimples (which might be a symptom because it's a lack of a usual AF symptom, I don't know). In fact, I have had some weird sensations (I'm not sure if they qualify as cramps, but definitely pressure at least) in my uterus/pelvic area. Last night I had a little bit of CM with what looked like a hint of brown. I thought it was AF finally coming. However, every trip to the bathroom after that the tp was completely dry. My body was totally messing with my head!

When I woke up this morning my temp was barely above my cover line and the tp was still dry. Then, it dawned on me. Maybe my loosing weight and changing diet helped my body not to be so estro.gen dominant! Of course! Normally I just take the prog.esterone until my period starts. The doc has me on a pretty high dose (2oomg in the AM and 200mg in the PM), but my period always breaks right through. That is kind of weird don't you think. I have a history of unusually high est and unusually low prog. So, I decided to poas so I would know I wasn't pg and I could stop taking prog (actually it's prome.trium, but same thing). I didn't have any so I ran to the dollar store and picked one up. It was positive.

What?!?!?

It was positive! It wasn't even a "faint, squint to see it" positive. It was a "show up right away, definite line" positive. My body is totally messing with my head. Maybe my L ovary isn't retarded after all...

My doc told me to come in asap if I thought I was pg. Of course, he doesn't work Mondays and his partner is "triple booked" today. So, I have an apt at 2:15 tomorrow with my doc, who is also "triple booked" tomorrow so they have to "work me in." Apparently in the last 3 months a lot of people have gotten pg but have had problems so it has been crazy at my doc's office.

I'm still in shock. I was totally sure this month was a bust. Now, I'm hoping that my lack of symptoms isn't a bad sign... I don't think I'll be able to relax at all until the 2nd trimester...

HOLY MOLY!!! Maybe all of your hard work with weight loss has paid off.

I can tell you that I have experienced that uterine heaviness that you described. It was an early sign for me.

Fingers crossed that your beta comes back great!!!

XOXO
