Evening of Day 9 Past Ovulation.

As today progressed some possible symptoms progressed.  I continued to have cramping throughout the day off and on.  I also continued to have a lot of gas and bloating and a little nausea, very slight, I was more hungry than usual, and noticed a little extra saliva in my jaw related to the slight nausea I’m assuming, but never felt like I would actually throw up.  I also felt a sense of heaviness, foggy headed, very similar to a heavy day of my period, but not even any spotting and my period isn’t due for another week.  My husband and I went for a walk and it was a bit uncomfortable, as if I was on my period, bloated, crampy and gassy.  And lastly I’ve noticed a sensitivity in my groin area as well as some lower back pain. Oh, and a bit agitated, like everything my husband says and does is the wrong thing, feeling annoyed and cranky.  The early tests shipped out today so we should know soon if I’m pregnant or crazy, but I’m going to continue to track what I’m feeling anyway, just in case I’m not crazy.


My very first signs.

So, I’ll be totally honest here, I have yet to miss a period and I have yet to take a pregnancy test.  However, I’m feeling something a brewing.  Here are the stats.  My period fluctuates between a 28 and 32 day cycle, so pretty normal and regular.  First day of my last period was April 29, 2011.  Husband and I made sweet love the morning of May 12th.  I actually felt left side ovulation pain two days later on May 14th, which was day 16 of my cycle, so about right.

I never thought I would be the type of person to feel these sudden changes, but maybe the fact that I actually felt ovulation has set a trend in my body.  The first sign of anything different came about 6 days past ovulation, very early, I know, but that was the first day something just felt different, the difference was sex with my husband.  We were in simple missionary and it was extremely uncomfortable, as if he was hitting my cervix.  This has happened a couple of times in the past depending on where I am in my cycle, but missionary was always the go to position to relieve any discomfort.

The next couple of signs started showing day 7 and 8 past ovulation, very subtle cramping and a wee bit of white discharge, similar to if I had a yeast infection, but without the yeast and without the infection and not as much.  Sorry to be so graphic, but I have spent the past few days online trying to read experiences just like this to see if it was all real or if I was making things up.  I have also noticed that I’m hungrier throughout the day, having to snack on hummus to get me between meals and I’m having more bowel movements.  Last night was the end of day 8 past ovulation and I was extremely gassy, more so than I have been in a long time, I’m talking the deadly kind, the kind that leaves you worried you may poop your pants if you continue.

And that leaves us to this morning, day 9 past ovulation, I woke up about 5:30 a.m. to menstrual type of cramps, but Aunt Flow is not due for another 7 days at least, they were bearable, but most definitely noticeable.  My boobs aren’t super sore or tender in general, until I lied on my stomach this morning, again, not unbearable, but noticeable.  Unable to sleep, I started this blog.

I ordered early pregnancy tests on Saturday from, so we shall see in the next few days if I am pregnant or delusional.  Too be continued.
