Clear Blue digital pregnancy tests in the mail today. I like those better than the lines because people always question the lines. I want it to be like BAM you're "pregnant". I don't want to sit there staring at the thing and have to ask others opinions. :) I am tempted to start using them every other day starting at 7 or 8dpo. They are just so darn expensive though. Yet another large expense for us infertiles. What is the earliest that you have heard people getting positive results...how many dpo?
Even though I told myself that I wouldn't, I am starting to Google random "symptoms" to tie to pregnancy. I know it is still way early, but oh well...I can't help it. Currently I am have been getting extremely hot in the middle of the night (maybe night sweats?), dreaming a lot (probably from the progesterone gel), slight (very slight) cramping every once in awhile, and acne on my chin (I usually break out right when my period is due...which is still a little less than 2 weeks away). Why do we do this to ourselves?! I really want to stay positive, but it is easier to think negatively because then it hurts less (or so we hope) when we get a negative response.
As for this 2WW....it hasn't been as bad as I thought it would be. I have been keeping busy by cleaning our two spare bedrooms. One is the exercise room, which looked like my closet had thrown up my clothes all over the place. The other is an office room. I am trying to relocate things in the office room so it can be empty and ready for a baby nursery (hopefully sooner than later). :) I plan on having a garage sale in June to get rid of stuff that we don't need anymore. I am not finished going thru things yet, but I am getting close.
