I need something to distract me....

I go tomorrow to get my blood drawn to see if I O'd this cycle. I was on Clomid CD5-9 and on Metformin. It's produced all kinds of things, twinges and CM changes I have never had before. It all caused me to feel so extremely positive!

I am 99.9% sure that I O'd. I don't know why I am so sure, I just have a gut feeling.

I am on CD 21, and day before yesterday, I noticed a feeling in my nipples. (sorry if TMI, but keep reading, it will get worse. ;) LMAO) Just brief, but a definite feeling that is not something I normally have. Outside of posting in my SG and texting this info to my BF, I haven't told anyone about this change, not even DH. I don't want him to get his hopes up if it turns out to be nothing. Well we were...intimate this afternoon, and when we were done, he was like, "babe, your boobs feel...funny." I just looked at him. He started to talk really fast, like he was trying to dig himself out of a hole, as if he had told me my butt was too big. What he meant to tell me is that my breasts are more firm than usual. It was interesting that he mentioned this change, cause I hadn't noticed it until he said something. I've also had heaviness and pulls on my lower right pelvic area. I can only hope these are good  things. :)

Now, I do realize that these could turn out to be nothing at all, but as long as my bloodwork tomorrow says that I did actually O, then I will POAS on Sunday and have my beta on Monday morning.  Especially if my IPS/RPS continue.

In the meantime, I have a week off before I start my new job on 4/19. Beside my class, I don't have anything to keep me occupied and all my brain can focus on is baby stuff! UGH. I am going to go crazy!
