So here we are. The days are slowly moving along. I did keep busy tonight, so that was helpful. After work I cleaned my house from top to bottom, because 3 friends from high school are crashing here tomorrow night. I even squeezed in a sunset boat ride with my husband and father-in-law. I love boats.
I’m officially on symptom-watch. I realize it’s still probably too early for implantation, but that won’t stop me. All day I was experiencing little twinges and sharp pangs, some low and to the left, but mostly on the right side. When I showed my husband where the pain was coming from he pointed out, ‘Wouldn’t that be your ovary?’ Hmmm. Why is he right? And why does he know my body and symptoms better than I do?
I guess whenever I get pain down there, I attribute it to whatever period-related symptom I should be having at the time. But I can’t really localize which organ it’s coming from. Obviously the smack dab in the center ones are the uterus, but how far to the sides can they go? I don’t know. I still hope it’s the far right side of my uterine wall being penetrated by tiny little embryos 2 and/or 6, but seriously I doubt it.
That’s about it for symptoms. I’ve kinda mastered Endometrin. Not that you’re really ever in control of this strange beast, but the trick is it needs to go as far as it can possibly go. Towards the end of it’s shift, the remnants will start to pour out (no matter how hard you will it not to), in such a bizarre and sudden fashion, it’s like a warm stream of water coming from no where into your undies. ‘Cept it’s not water.
I’ve had an unopened box of OPKs sitting on my dresser for a few weeks. I don’t know why it’s there, those things are useless to me. However, last night I noticed there’s 1 HPT included in the box. Hmm. It piqued my interest a bit. I’m too realistic to even waste the test at this point, but maybe by early next week. It’ll still be too early, but I might have to do it just because. We shall see.
I’ll have to go stock up on HPTs this weekend. Can you believe that I have one lonely test stick in my house (that I didn’t even know I had)? When you’re infertile and pre-treatment, you don’t need no stinking pregnancy tests.
