About Me

A 30 something lesbian coffee drinker from London attempting to record and share our ttc journey. Hobbies and activities - dining out with The Wife, increasing our carbon footprint, napping, over sharing on Facebook, hunting for decent second hand book shops, pretending to knit.

Friday, 5 October 2012


So we tested this morning on a first response @ silly o'clock - nuffink. (To be expected) The Wife seems quite blue about it but as I keep reminding her - OTD is 4 more sleeps away! Plus for some reason I think my embies are like moi: inherently lazy (hehe) so I actually don't expect to see any early action.

Sooooo: symptom spotting - I'll work backwards;

5dp5dt: burst blood vessel in eye
4dp5dt: lower back pain, quite achey, heartburn, itchy all over body in the evening - I was scratching everything from my eyebrow to my ankle
3dp5dt: tons of twinges, fluttery feeling, just felt different. HUGE thirst. Was drinking water constantly all day
2dp5dt: felt a bit sick, had a hot flash, twinges
1dp5dt: from memory.... nothing

Roll on the 10th.


  1. Hang in there. Not much longer, and yes too early to tell with a stick. We have everything crossed for you x

  2. I agree with Meela, way to early to test. The POAS is really what killed us. Hang in there! Thinking of you!
