6dp5dt (11dpo)

Trina started cramping yesterday. They weren't very strong, some were only twinges, but they were there. This morning she started spotting. Even though both of these things can be signs of implantation & early pregnancy, it really scared her to see blood. Going through the miscarriage and 11 failed cycles has left us both pretty gun shy. She told her manager what was going on just in case it got worse and she had to leave early. Her manager told her to just go home and lay down, no point in waiting to see if it got worse. She spent the day resting and drinking lots of water & the spotting stopped until just a little while ago...

Over the last few days Trina has had a bevy of what could be construed as "early pregnancy symptoms". They could also be progesterone or estrogen side effects or absolutely nothing... She's been getting hungry every 2-3 hours. She's had odd food cravings. Example: last night she ate a half a jar of pickles, pouted because there weren't any more then washed them down with 2 huge glasses of chocolate milk. Yuck... She's had several bouts of nausea and light headedness. She's been extremely thirsty. She's been more tired than usual. Her boobs hurt like mad and her belly is a little distended.

Our first beta isn't scheduled until March 5th which is 13dp5dt (18dpo). As of now, Trina does not want to do a HPT until that day or maybe the day before. She's scared to death to see a negative test. I've been trying not to even think about the possibility of getting a negative test. I've also been avoiding things like knowing how many dpo we are or counting how many days are left until we test. The less I think about specifics, the better off I am mentally and emotionally. I hate that the icy fear is just under the surface waiting to grow into instant panic at the slightest nudge. I yearn for the day when I'll feel grounded and secure about this baby makin business.

I really think you are going to get a fantastic result from this cycle. I am betting that the bleeding is related to the progesterone but that is still such a scary thing to see. Good for her for resting alot. Those certainly do sound like EPS. The TWW is a total mindf**k. hang in there

Yikes!! 13dp5dt is a really long time to make you wait! Y'all have such willpower to wait on the hpts. FWIW, I had cramping before my bfp; I was *sure* af was just around the corner.

Hope you both get some rest this weekend and the spotting stops. I'm with Cindy - I have a good feeling about the outcome of the cycle. :D

I hope the spotting and cramps is just because your baby(ies) are getting all good and snuggled in there!!

How have her dreams been????

Oh, I can't help but feel really, really excited for you guys about this cycle, given all of those symptoms! Good luck with riding out the rest of the TWW--they are so excruciating. I can't believe you have to wait so long!
I'll be blog-stalking you...

I remember feeling specific twinges/pinching/cramping right in the spot I believe my boys implanted. That's TOTALLY what it is :)
Test. With twins you might even get a positive today :)

Praying those cramps are and were implantation cramping and your beautiful family is snuggled in safe and sound

I am hoping that the bleeding is just due to implantation and that you will get a great beta number come March 5th.
