Twinge City

Feel free to skip this part if you're not into ttc symptom watching... So, I felt what seemed like uterine "twinges" today, 8 or 9 dpo, in the lower left side of my abdomen.  :-)  This point "twinged," or sort of pulsed, three or four times in about a minute.  Who knows what's going on in there, but I do feel happy to have felt it. 

In addition, my temperature also took a second jump up today from 98.2 to 98.5.  And, lastly, when I inserted my progesterone this morning, I noticed my cervix was decidedly lower.  I never noticed this before.  I'm thinking it's a "neutral" sign (and that's what Fertil.ity Friend tells me).  Any thoughts on this state of events?

No huge plans this weekend, but my housemate is around and I'm spending time with a friend tomorrow at her moving sale.  I normally go to dance on Sundays, then out to eat.  Because I was specifically told "no vigorous exercise," I chose not to go last week and will miss this week, as well.  Missing last week reminded me what a big part of my weekend my dancing is!  I would rather play it safe, though.

Speaking of my housemate, I wanted to share with you all that I think I cursed him by talking about his relationship in glowing terms on this blog recently.  I held him up as an example of glorious companionship, and then, this week, they break up!  I knew they were still somewhat in limbo about moving forward to the next step, which logically would have been engagement, but I didn't expect a break up! 

Right before he took this action, I asked him how he would feel if they broke up, and he said both sad and relieved.  I guess that was an indicator.  Plus, he started talking about how he didn't feel a strong desire to move forward; that he really wanted to feel excited and compelled to move to the next level.  I understand what he's saying... but now he gets to rejoin me back in "The Land of Singledom," which equals, "The Land of No Sex or Intimate Companionship." lol  Anyway, just thought I'd share the weird timing, immediately following my sunny blog post about the two of them.


  1. Twinging could totally be implantation. Thinking of you girl! Praying that you get that BFP!

  2. Twinges can be a great sign of implantation. Good luck!

  3. Oooh sounds like good symptoms!! I'm not sure about cervix position. I've always tried to figure that one out - seems like everyone is different in early pregnancy. Twinges are awesome! :-) *Fingers crossed*
    Aw, sorry to hear about your roommate, but it sounds like the right decision. Now you have a partner in crime!

  4. Twinges and temperature jumps are great signs! I've always been crap at interpreting cp, so I'm no use to you there.

    Oh, I really hope this is it....*crosses fingers*

  5. Sounds promising, fingers crossed for you.

  6. Oooooh, all good signs! Fingers and toes crossed for you!

  7. How ironic that your housemate just broke up with his girlfriend after your previous happy comments about their relationship. It just goes to show how things aren't always what they seem. I try to keep this in mind when I see pregnant bellies out and about. Who knows what they had to go through to get that big belly. Maybe they struggled just like you and me?
