11 dpo: All Quiet on the Uterine Front

This is the hardest part of a two-week wait, at least for me.  You are trying to sense any pregnancy signs, even when you tell yourself ten times not too, that it's a futile endeavor.  You know that if something's going to happen, it has likely started, but there's no way to know until a few more days pass (unless your taking an HPT, which I'm not).

I wish I had more encouraging news to report.  I've felt nothing of consequence in the uterine region.  The only clear signs I've felt so far are all common complaints of progesterone supplementation:
  • Breast soreness
  • Headaches
  • Irritable/emotional moods
I didn't feel the breast soreness until 9dpo, which is around when I started getting sinus-type headaches, too.  For those of you who were on progesterone, was this a common timeline for you?  No headache today but pretty bad on Friday and Saturday.

If my cycle doesn't start by Wednesday, I've been instructed to go in for a blood test.  If this cycle is a no go, then we'll see if I'm cyst-free for the next cycle.  If so, then S and I will go forward with injectable medication plus IUI.


  1. The TWW is the worst! You are right, one cannot help but question every ache and pain. I always got sore breasts during PMS, even before ovulation so not sure what to tell you about the Prog. But boobs getting sore at 9DPO sounds promising. Hope its good news in a few days!

  2. Just a few more days. Fingers crossed for you.

  3. Could be the progesterone but maybe not! :-) Your symptoms sound good to me! Keeping everything crossed for you and praying for great news!!

  4. I always sucked with having patience during the TWW, constantly whipped out the HPT way too early. I really hope it isn't the progesterone that is causing these symptoms!!

  5. Fingers crossed for you, K. I'm hoping you go in on Wed for the blood test. :) xo

    Nathan and I have started TTC. I got pregnant in May (!!!) and miscarried around the beginning of June. I'm keeping a new blog on the TTC and getting married (but mostly TTC). It's private, but if you want to follow that one, let me know your e-mail address. My current cycle is feeling suuper wonky, it's very frustrating. http://aswellskinnylove.blogspot.com/

  6. I'm hoping this is it for you! Also, I didn't have any symptoms at all during my TWW when I got pregnant. So, don't stress too much about it. Sending you positive thoughts!
