- Wedding: August 2012
Well, hello TTCers! I’ve popped in a few POAS threads, mostly lurk, and have interacted with a few of you Bees during my “preparing to TTC” journey.
We are getting married in one month, and since we’ve had a long engagement & have lived together for a few years, we decided we didn’t want to wait to start our family. We had planned on waiting until August to officially “start” BUT…
We pulled the goalie this month! Cue freak out/happy dance/stress out!
I’ve been chatting with MrsCarnival lately (Mad props to you lady- thanks for everything!!) but she’s out of town this weekend so I felt like I should come out and de-lurk. This is my first TWW and I’m fa-REAKIN out. Apparently I’m an insane symptom spotter.
Ok, so here are my stats:
I O’d on CD 18 which was 7/16. I’m only 4 DPO right now, and I swear I am so tired. I am dragging all day, I want a nap all the time. My nipples are sore (not my whole boob, just the nip) and I’ve had headaches off and on for the last day or so.
Ok, I know I’m cray-cray, and that at 4 DPO even if, by some miracle, fertilization occurred, the HCG emmitting from the zygote would be too negligible to cause symptoms. Logical me knows this anyway, but crazy me is CRAZY!
I’m also supposed to go to an event with Future Mother-In-Law tomorrow… with her and her famous margaritas. Ugh. How am I supposed to fake drink a margarita?!?! Maybe I’ll take teeny sips and dump it or “accidentally” spill it. Whatevs.
I’ve had a bit of light cramping today, but I REFUSE to POAS until 7/27- at which time I will expect a BFN, retest on 8/4. How does that sound for a plan? Any tips to keep my sanity? I’m just glad that we can all commiserate 🙂 Happy BDing, & POASing 😛
