About not symptom spotting that. Truth be told I don’t think I can HELP but symptom spot. I try to tell myself that obsessing won’t help, that there are logical explanations for everything going on, that it is too early to have any real symptoms.
I’m trying to be logical, but I am failing hard.
So I call out to you guys to help me out. I don’t know what to do. Part of me is really tempted to test tomorrow (10 dpo) but the other part of me is saying I shouldn’t. Technically my period is due next Tuesday and I usually start spotting a day or two before. I do want to test by Monday just because I have my appointment with my new Endo on Tuesday and I don’t want to go if by slim chance I am pregnant.
There are just some things going on that I can’t ignore. I know there are some things that I am not making up.
-I’ve been really hungry since around 6 dpo. Like really hungry. I’ve never been a big eater yet lately I always feel the need to eat more. I’m really worried that if I am not pregnant that I am going to gain a bunch of weight this week. No bueno.
-Been peeing a lot more. I don’t know if this is really a symptom or if I have just been drinking more lately. I don’t feel like I am, but maybe my water intake has just increased.
-On 5 dpo I had a crazy flash of dizziness. I was just walking along, didn’t make any sudden movements or anything, but all of a sudden I felt like I was spinning and I had to grab a wall. The dizziness has come and gone a bit since then, but never to that extent.
-7 dpo I became super bloated all of a sudden. Like I was sitting down at work and my lower abdomen felt really, really full. It was almost uncomfortable to sit down. I hadn’t eaten anything unusual that day. The bloating lasted a couple of hours and eventually subsided.
-8 dpo I had some mild cramping. Cramping that almost felt period like in my lower back (I always cramp in my back during AF, never in my abdomen.) It happened off and on throughout the day. Every once in awhile I feel a slight pinching near my uterus.
-9 dpo. This actually started late at night on 8dpo but my breasts are a little sore. This one is really throwing me off because I never get sore breasts, not even on my period. But this is not the type of soreness I had expected. Last night I only noticed it because I was molesting myself to see if they were sore. It is mostly underneath and on the sides of my boobs and the best way to describe it is a light throbbing when I touch it. Today it is a bit more intense but still not really strong, and the achiness goes down to where my ribs and boobs meet. My nips aren’t sensitive and the tops do not hurt. Totally weirding me out.
-My leg muscles are feeling a bit sore, almost like I’ve been exercising. Definitely haven’t been doing that.
-I’m freezing all the time. We’ve haven’t changed the thermostat at all at work or home but I am always so cold.
-I have had a runny nose and headache for the past 3 or 4 days, but I am blaming that on my sucky sinus’. I get infections at the drop of the hat and I feel like one is a brewing right now. I actually have antibiotics on hand but I’m hesitint to take them…you know, just in case.
There you have it. My craziness all put out there for the world. I’m am going to feel so incredibly stupid for writing this post when I turn up not pregnant. I hate feeling this crazy and obsessive but I don’t know what to do. I really want this to be it but past experience has told me that it most likely is not. Sigh. Do I or don’t I test?
