Doggone Cervix

La Rae - March 3

Friggin' A man! I have been checking my cervix quite religiously for these past few months (before O, during O, before af, during af - you name it) And for the LIFE of me, I do not see a pattern here! Today SHOULD be my O day and from Monday until even now, I have had an abundance (and I mean abundance!) of thick, creamy, white cm. I figured - 'Ok' I'm getting ready to O, no biggie. BUT my cervix has never really gotten real soft or high (this cycle, I mean). It's been medium-high and medium-soft, but not what it's supposed to be for ovulation, you know? Anyways, I felt it just a few minutes ago, and it was med-high, med-soft, and THEN 2 minutes later when I checked it again, it was low, hard and when I reached up there, it would only let my finger go so far, and it kind of hurt to touch it (like a bruise). That's it! I give up! If I'm pg - then fine! If not - also fine! My nipples are still looking like pregnant nipples, and I've had weird twinges to the left of my belly button today, and I have those new spider veins on my face and on my left ankle - but other than that? Nada. (except for the itchy feet and hands I had for the last two nights) I am officially crazy, no doubt about it! Oh yeah, and I had a dream that I bought two different types of hpts. And everyone in my family was in the dream - mom, pops, son, hub, siblings, everybody! Anyways....everyone kept saying to me: you're wasting your time, just give up. I then was given a choice between the two tests I bought, and I picked the digital one, and when I tested it was a BFP - and at the end of my dream, everyone kept saying they 'Couldn't believe it - it's a miracle!' I liked and hated that dream at the same time when I woke up from it. I hate this damn uncertainity....It BITES! Ok, my vent for the day is now over - thanks for putting up with me, since my family won't (anymore). LOL

You know, I tried to check mine to see if maybe I could tell if I was pregnant by it's position, and it varied quite a bit. All the research I did on cervical position left me with the understanding that there is no "normal" position for it to be in during pregnancy. I got a BFP yesterday, and I can tell you that over a weeks time (prior to the bfp), it was high and hard, low and hard, and midway and hard. Also, cervical position is not something to use as a way to detect ovulation or period, because it varies from one woman to the next. Did this help or confuse you even more?

Thanks Tiffani - actually....you did a little bit of both! Ha,Ha,Ha.... Congrats on your BFP! Is this your first? How was your cm leading up to your bfp? Was it in abundance or scarce or in between or what? Sorry so many questions - but if I don't ask 'em, somebody else will! LOL Thanks for responding. Congrats one more time, on your little miracle! Enjoy your pregnancy and your baby! Keep in touch for sure, ok?

Thank You LaRae. I actually have 2 kids, a daughter who will be 3 in May, and a son who turned 1 in December. This was the first pregnancy where I just "knew" I was pregnant, before the first sign. I can't explain it, but for some reason, there was just this feeling that the bun was in the oven. I've been following your posts for the past month, and I was so convinced you were pregnant. As a matter of fact, your posts helped me notice some signs long before I even considered looking for them. When I began checking my cervical mucus it was always there, but never in abundance. It was creamy and thin, then progressed to a creamy thick lotion like texture, which is what it is today. I'm not exactly sure when I conceived, but my last normal period was Jan. 19th followed by a light period (definitely a period, not I/B, confirmed by my doctor) on Feb.8, 9, 10. So, I either conceived in Jan and had a period while pregnant, or after my Feb. period. Does this help?

Well, i have not much idea about cervix things, having just discovered i have one last week (does seem to move about a bit) and have no pregnancy symptons as yet... I am waiting for mucus.... this apparently is the BIG sign... it is 5.42 am and i've been up since 4.30... unable to sleep... weird dream and very itchy... sign of pregnancy or too many cats????

ANd.... BIG CONGRATULATIONS tiffani!!!!!

 

La Rae - March 3

Now see....here's the thing: technically, when my supposed af came on 2/18, it was a day late. THAT day when I was checking, I got creamy, white discharge in the early morning - and then when I checked mid-morning, I got the mucous and it stretched real far between my fingers (maybe an inch, give or take). I got 3 globs of it (sorry so gross) - and since I am becoming quite the expert with my doggone cervix and my doggone cm, I can honestly say that this didn't happen to me in the previous ttc months. And now? My cervix is low and hard and my cm appears to be drying up. You know what? I think all I am really accomplishing here is that I get to 'play' with myself for a 'good cause'. HA! C'mon....that was funny! Take care Mulga and Tif - see ya' on the flipside.

Opps clumbsy old fingers! Sorry.

 

La Rae to Lyla - March 3

Hey....that's okay. I had to read it twice anyway - takes my brain a few seconds to absorb all the words! LOL LMAO I don't know about me being pg - really. Just 2 minutes ago I was telling my mom that I honestly believed I was NOT pg - but that I was going to test tomorrow morning anyway - based solely on that dream I had last night (pretty stupid, huh?). Anyways....right when I was telling her that - BAM! I get a sharp pain in the underside of my left b___st. First time I ever felt THAT in recent memory. Those twinges I felt this morning to the lower left of my belly b___ton, were kind of like a 'tugging' feeling. So who the hell knows right? I can't decide if I should test with my last First Response Early one, or my generic 1.49 Eckerd (Fact Plus copy) brand???? Any ideas anybody? Oh, and THIS time I am using first morning urine....(don't be surprised if I post a BFN tomorrow - I know I won't be) Peace and Love ya'll. Later.....

 

mulgajill - March 3

LaRae... i'm starting to know where you're coming from regarding signs... just hopped in shower... looked at b___sts (not much there!)... mmmm... looked a bit veiny and felt hot... hopped outta shower, dried off, had another look... mmmm... look & feel normal.... gawd!!! good luck tomorrow with the hpt.... xx

Congrats, Tiffani! I don't understand my cervix, either, Ladies! I have a , maybe, strange question about it. My cervix is always on the very left side, Is that where it is supposed to be? Is it supposed to be in the middle?

 

La Rae - March 4

Ladies....I changed my mind. I didn't test. I officially believe that I am officially not pregnant. Me and the hub hopefully will work things out and try again next month. Or the month after that. Or whenever....The funny thing is - I think my O day is either today or tomorrow (based on cm and cervix position). Maybe we'll have a little visit with one another tonight or tomorrow? Who knows, right? I am now relaxed about the whole thing. Whatever will be, will be.....

 

Lyla - March 4

Wow girl, I started to get excited when you mentioned the sharp pain in your b___st. I thought it was a for sure sign that something was going on. So you decided not to test, Well at least you don't have to stress over the outcome. I hope you have fun BD'ing. Keep your head up because the best is yet to come.

 

mulgajill - March 4

Well, hope you keep posting, you, mandy and sugar are a fountain of wisdom and good advise, and fiesty too.... great to share the highs and lows of ttc'ing.... sort of like the highs and lows of having a relationship... still you need the lows to make the highs more precious.... XXXX
