The Slowest 2ww...

Time seems to be slowly ticking by until my first ultrasound on the 20th. I've never had a 2ww feel longer! I'm not really feeling much in the way of symptoms. A little food aversion and nausea here and there, some weird cramping/pulling, crying more than normal, bad skin (I blame progesterone for this), and tired. Other than that, feeling pretty normal which makes it harder to believe that I am the P word. I've been using up my internet cheapies and poas periodically when I begin to worry. Happy to say they are finally as dark as the control line--I'm guessing a FRER would be blazing by now. So, I think I'm done testing.

The PIO is a pain in the butt (literally). I finally understand now what you ivf ladies are talking about. Giant red itchy welts, check. My RE doesn't allow baths at all until first ultrasound which is unfortunate because I think they would help. I'm going to try the heating pad trick I've been hearing about online. Otherwise, just hanging out and reading all of your blogs. Hoping this week flies by.
