On the Bright Side

In the spirit of yin/yang, equilibrium, balance and harmony, I would like to even the scales a little after my last depressing post. Here are a few things that are positive about my current situation:
  1. I have taken 6 preggo tests which have all been positive, and getting progressively darker.
  2. My temps are higher than ever, and staying way up there.
  3. Symptoms are increasing slowly but surely. For example, I had absolutely no breast tenderness until about 13DPO (3 days ago), and since then they have gotten pretty sore to the point that I can feel the pain any time I move my body. Still no nausea but I am so friggin tired. I took 2 naps this weekend AND slept 9 hours each night and still feel totally wiped. Also, I have been having gentle cramping on and off which suggests that the womb is expanding. I sure hope that is what's going on because that is how I'm justifying this bump:

So overall, I am progressing much better than my last pregnancy where the HPT went negative only 3 days after showing positive, and I had no booby pain at all.

These are all good things, yes? Now in the words of Mo, let's keep all appendages crossed that it continues!


  1. AWWW, I love being quoted *blush*. And I love the "bump!"

  2. YAY! This is all very good news!

    I'm so glad that things seem to be settling down for you right now. I think you'll find that your Beta turns out just fine too.

    You'll forgive me though if I don't keep ALL appendages crossed- it might be a little counterproductive to my own plans! :-)

    Still, YAY! :-)

  3. all such great news!

  4. Hooray! Sounds like things are progressing well :-) I finally got in for beta #2 this morning and I'm dying to know my new numbers...with such dark tests I assume they are fine. Will you be getting a second beta too?
