10 DPO - Another Imaginative Title

Not a lot to report around here. I haven't had much in the way of symptoms, except for the fact that I did have some twinges over the weekend, which may have been implantation cramping, and may also have been my overactive imagination.

I do realize that "symptoms" is a strong word for any pregancy associations at 10 DPO. I do think that being pregnant as many times as I have been has made me more aware of the subtle changes that start happening, even this very early on. I also know that my husband's nose has not ever been wrong. There has never been a false alarm. So, I know this might also heighten my awareness of what's going on in the netherregions.

I do find it rather interesting that M is more sensitive than any test on the market. I actually think that I could rent him out and make a profit. Hmmmmm. . . not a bad idea, actually. I can just see it now, "Find out as early as implantation."

M is hopeful that this cycle will be "it" for us. I really don't know what my thoughts are on it. I mean, of course, I would love to be that girl, who tried so hard for #1 and got pregnant with #2 on the very first actually trying-again cycle. I would love even more to stay pregnant, because, as I reminded M last night, we don't have the greatest stats with sustaining a pregnancy on our own.

He was a little irritated with me, calling me "negative." I don't think negative is the correct term. I think "realistic" is far more appropriate. After everything we have been through, and considering our post-Will loss in May, I just think it is prudent to prepare myself for the worst. I have a little boy who depends on me not to wallow in post-miscarriage-sadness, which means that I have to keep it in perspective.

Now, again, this is all getting rather ahead of things here. We are only 10 DPO, folks. Just things to think about for the future, whenever that BFP might be.

Hey Katie, just want you to know that I'm hoping with you that your wait for your next little one won't be long! Sending hopeful thoughts your way.

Holding thumbs for you! Would you take progestorone supplements when you find out you are pregnant, or did they not have any effect in the past?

Good luck! Fingers crossed!

Keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Also, you should totally rent out your husband. I know I'd pay big money to know at implantation, especially with the whole "hey, you're Rh-negative, and your husband is not!" development. And I bet a lot of other people would rent him too. You'd have the FET money in no time flat. :)
