Something is kicking my @ss.

And it's either one or two little embryos or the progesterone. I am wiped out every evening. Yesterday, I was driving home from visiting my brother and I had to pull over and take a nap on the freeway. I was so tired and it was only about 5:15. For the last three nights, I've been exhausted by 4 or 5 pm. I just sleep on the couch until I wake up and then I go to bed and sleep the whole night. I am usually not a napper nor a sleep through the nighter.

I did research side effects of progesterone and drowsiness is one of the side effects. I wasn't this tired earlier (and I've been taking it for 13 days. Maybe it is building up in my system.

6dp5dt.

I know we could probably poas stick right now and get some sort of answer but we're going to wait until Wednesday. If it is negative, I don't want to think we tested too early and then test again tomorrow, etc. I've been through that and it is miserable. When I test, I want it to be definitive. At least as definitive as a pregnancy in this IF world can be.

Sorry, messed up. What I meant to say was:

I think the exhaustion sounds like very, very good news. I am taking progesterone and no-where near that tired. FX!

I'm thinking the sleepiness is very good! It is sooo funny that you took a nap on the freeway -- now THAT is tired! I think the important thing is to listen to your body and give into it...which you're doing.

I agree - being wiped out is a good sign. Progesterone can make you somewhat tired but not usually *that* tired, and usually if it was just the progesterone you would have felt this tired earlier. I am SO HOPING that this works for you!!

As for not POAS - good for you, I think it might just drive you nuts. Sure, if it's positive it would be great to know now but if it isn't, it's just makes you wonder if you tested too early, etc etc... and 6dp5dt could still be too early.

Keeping everything possible crossed for you....

In terms of testing I'm exactly the same way -- I always want the definitive -- I am hoping for you and will be checking in often -- and I agree with all the voices...I certainly hope this is good, good news.

Hoping you are tired because you've got an embryo attached and growing!

The exhaustion sounds like good news.

I'm excited for you!

I so very much hope for you that it is a good sign. I have experienced that kind of fatigue on progesterone. We can (and do) make ourselves crazy trying to read the signs, huh? Best wishes and good luck.

I think it sounds very positive, and you are getting very close to your testing. Fingers and toes crossed for you!

Sending lots of love and positive energy your way.

Everything sounds like it's going in the right direction! None of my leftover embryos survived either, so I know the disappointment! The wait is kicking my @ss! I'm praying for you!
