Feeling completely normal today, except I’m a bit space-heady -- to my boss’s chagrin. Oh well! I can’t really blame that on the baby-making process at all because I’m like that a lot. : )

A is considering me PUPO (pregnant until proven otherwise) and I am playing along. I’m still a bit dismayed by the lack of symptoms in my body but trying not to read too much into it. At this point I’m not sure what to do if I get some “ovulation symptoms”, anyway, so I’m trying to stop squeezing my boobs.

Progesterone suppositories are a bit weird and a little messy, but not nearly as bad as I thought they’d be. More than anything, I’m glad to have them keeping me company during the 2ww. It makes me feel like I’m “doing something” instead of just twiddling my thumbs.

Since I allegedly ovulated sometime over night on Saturday/Sunday morning, I wasn’t sure what to consider my O date. I decided on Saturday, because that lets me test one day sooner. ; ) The earliest I will let myself test is 11dpo (next Wednesday), although I’m considering testing sometime this weekend (7-8dpo) for control purposes to see if the shot is out of my system. Haven’t made a decision on that one yet. I’m really terrified of a false positive, probably more terrified than I am of a negative.

Happy Monday to everyone!

Yay for being PUPO! :)

I like that you say the progesterone is "keeping you company". I will try to look at it that way too! I think that they are pretty gross but you are least I'm doing something during the waiting period!

Yes...sad that we turn to drugs to keep us company. Didn't we grow up in the just say no era?!?! ;) Here from cycle sista...wishing you good luck!!

Good luck's definitely one of the worst parts of this whole process. I think 11 dpo is super reasonable. Sending good luck your way!

PUPO is awesome but really all we are is in the 2ww by another name!



Your husband is a wise man. Will you please tell him I said that? I cannot wait to tell Rocco his theory on the cube. I bet there will be some man-love flowing his way as well.
