I'm kicking myself for not writing down more of my symptoms from our last IVF cycle. Why, you ask? Because, I'm becoming more neurotic by the day.

Seriously, there is no fooling myself this time that I'll be able to wait until beta day (Tuesday) to know my fate.. At this point I'll be lucky if I make it to the weekend without peeing on something that has the ability to make some lines.

As for symptoms? They can pretty much all be explained by hormonal changes thanks to all of the supplementation I'm on. Buuuut, in case you're wondering, or God forbid, I have to do this ever again......
  • Effing crazy dreams
  • Uterine cramping
  • A seriously oily face
  • Random dizzy spell in line at  the grocery store
  • Weight loss - with ZERO effort
  • Extremely sore nipples
  • Decreased blood pressure
  • Fatigue
  • Pretty serious aversion to toast (weirdest aversion ever!)
  • The beginnings of a rash on my belly (3dp5dt)
For the record I had all of these, minus the oily face and the weird toast thing last time... And I was pregnant.

Things sound promising :)
I will NOT PEE on anything...keep telling myself that. 6 days until beta *sigh*

Sounds good to me!!

Toast gives me heartburn right now...just thought I would throw that out there.
Sounds like all good signs to me - I (as you know) wouldn't be able to wait either (and didn't) I would have to know. So I am not one to give advice about peeing on things that make lines!
I can't wait until you get your good news (because it WILL be good news!!!)

Well isn't THAT exciting!!! I've had one vivid dream and a bunch of uterine cramping... that's about it. Oh! And serious fatigue, but I kindof attribute that to the 6 hrs of sleep I've been getting. Oops.

Hold out until the weekend!!! I poas this morning at 5dp5dt and damn near had a nervous breakdown. No line. I know it's still early, but I was hoping!!!
