So it's 6 DPO and I'm having symptoms. At 4 DPO I began to experience ongoing tender breasts. At 5 DPO it was a tender breasts, headache, fatigue and irritability. Today, at 6 DPO, it is a triphasic BBT chart, bloating, along with tender breasts (and maybe I'm a little queasy this afternoon?).
I have experienced all of these symptoms in both pregnancy and progesterone supplemented cycles. What is a little unusual this month is the breast tenderness occurring so soon after ovulation. Breast tenderness is very uncommon for me on a normal cycle and only common intermittently on progesterone supplemented cycles. On a normal progesterone supplemented cycle breast tenderness normally begins at 9 DPO, NOT 4 DPO.
This cycle is a little different.
I repeat: It's just the progesterone!
(I need to keep reminding myself of this)
Rainbow: I have my sanity so far.
Rainshower: I'm reading into all of these symptoms but constantly need to remind myself that it could just be the hormones I am on. At least I can tolerate these hormones better than birth control and Clomid.
