Let's talk about boobies.

Specifically, my boobies.

As ~anyone~ who has been reading me knows, I've got big bags of salt water in my chest. Yup, fakies. And they are the most wonderful things I have ever bought. Better than any of my heels. I'm not giant, no way. I went from an A minus to a small C. But I love them. So so so much.

On the day of my u/s when my beta was a mere 1,073, the nurse asked me if my breasts were tender. I grabbed them right there and said "nope, not at all". And they weren't.

Now, holy shit. They have swollen. I'm sure no one else can notice, but I do. And they hurt. Why do they hurt??? Isn't it the progesterone that makes them hurt? If so, wouldn't they of hurt from the first day of PIO injections? Why now? Why only starting this week? Please, if you have an answer - tell me!

~~~

And to leave you with a little of my obsession ... I poas again today. Yes, at what? um, 29dp3dt. I'm all nervous about the big heartbeat u/s coming up in 3 days. I don't feel pregnant at all. And I'm terrified all I will see is the same little sac I saw before. Ugh. So I poas. And even if the hb isn't there, the damned pee stick would still be positive. No reason for me to pee, yet I did. At least it's nice and dark, right? (my god, I'm a dork.)

I have no answers, but I'm sorry you boobies hurt!

Are you a dork for still testing? Yes. But then that means I'm a dork too, because I also test until I have more than just a congratulations and a pat on the back from the doctor to believe it. I need proof in the form of an ultrasound with a heartbeart. So Dorks 'R Us.

Your boobs are probably starting to hurt because your placenta is developing and is starting to kick in its own hormone production in addition to the PIO that you're recieiving.

You graduated to a C-cup? I need a demotion to a C-cup. Seriously. These things are heavy. :)

Thanks for your kind words on my blog today! :) I really should come out of lurkdom over here and comment to you as much as I read here. I'll be thinking of you leading up to your big u/s.

Jen said...

You are a major dork... Just kidding.

And my boobs went from crazy sore right after transfer to now, beta day, as mildly sore but not terrible.

It's just my mind fucking with me.

And I think it's awesome the pregnant line is darker than the control!

Jen said...

That's a beautifully dark line! Good luck on Friday.

Katherine said...

I'm no doctor, but I think it's just the massive bloat that comes on when you get pg...your body starts holding onto large amounts of water in poreparation for building that baby. BTW, my boobies are super-freakin' fabulous right now, too!!! :)

mmj100179 said...

I'm interested to hear how the new boobies due throughout the pregnancy as mine are fakies too!

LOL on the peestick! Very pretty!

Cat said...

Lower HCG levels cause minimal pregnancy symptoms, even though you are pregnant. But sore boobs are a major "good" symptom. PIO shots will make them tender, but will not make them "pregnancy" sore. So, this is a good pain:)

So glad all is going well so far for you and your family.

You are so funny! I have to admit that I too have a nice dark + hpt in my medicine cabinet to look at every morning. I have my ultrasound for hb check on Thursday...so I feel your pain-in the boobs too!!

Chas said...

My boobs never really hurt, but everyone else's seemed to, so I'd say you're completely normal!

Miss Tori said...

What time is your appointment on Friday? I'll be there at 7:30 for my b/w & u/s.

waitinginline said...

I had absolutely no symptoms until the day before we saw the heartbeats (except for larger BBs, but not sore). But I was poas-ing until we saw something in there. No shame in stick-comfort I say!

Oh yeah, and I've gone from C cup to D cup since I got my first positive HPT. How big can these suckers get?! Ha!

Deb said...

I have no assvice on the boobies. And as far as the stick goes - I wanna poas and there is no chance in hell I could be pregnant. Hell I no longer have a "womb with a view" but you make me wanna poas. It's like a poas party and I wanna join. I might go buy one just for the heck of it.

Of course I'm just joshin - I'm not gonna pee on my hand for no good reason.

We'll be thinking about you on Friday and look forward to an update.
PS- I had to go back a few months to catch up on your past posts - I'm exhausted :)

Hilarious that you tested. Sorry about your hoots hurting. So very excited for Friday to get here for you!

You are totally a dork, but a hot dork in a hot black (not pink!) dress.

WISHING...HOPING...and PRAYING said...

i really didn't feel pregnant for awhile, but once it hit me...it was a definite puke fest for weeks. can't wait to hear about the heartbeat appt.

Our family is complete said...

Sore boobs are the worst.

Good luck at your h/b appointment. Can't wait to hear all about it.

My boobs have been hurting practically ever since O. At least my nipples have been tender to the touch.

I'm actually not looking forward to them getting much bigger. I'm already a DD and it's hard finding pretty supportive bras.

I've got one more pee stick in the cabinet and have been thinking about peeing on it just for the heck of it.

Sarah R said...

We'll get to see those big boobs once you start the belly pics! :)

Good luck at your appointment. I would say the sore boobies are a great sign though...

Hey Nancy! I used to "stalk" you all the time and always enjoyed reading your blog however over the last 4 or 5 months my life's gotten a bit hectic and I haven't had a chance to check up on you. For whatever reason you were on my mind today so I thought I'd check and see how your ttc battle was going and I was so freakin thrilled to read your latest news!!! I am so happy for you. I know how much you have wanted this pregnancy. I wish you a happy and healthy pregnancy.

Oh and my DD's are all real but sore boobs were the worst for me from 6-10 weeks.

Best of luck to you and your family!

Geohde said...

Mine have never really been sore at all this time around. I was convinced the fet failed for that reason. My first preg (singleton) they hurt like heck but this time with twins...nope.

Personally I have lost faith in the booby oracle, and go straight for the week sticks :)

Here from NCLM

I'm praying for you. I wish I had answers but my boobs are so huge on their own, I can't even figure out why anyone would want to be bigger!

Jendeis said...

Yes, you are a dork, but we love you darling. As John Dear would say, if I'm a dork and you love me, you're a dork-a-phile. Yes, yes, we are.

Perhaps a new bra is in order? Maybe more support would help them feel less sore. My assvice, anyways.

Beth said...

You are a dork, but I love it. I get scared when I feel completely normal too, and I feel like the closer you get to doctor's appts. the more we freak ourselves out. Good luck w/ your u/s. Can't wait to see the little guy/girl!!!

Jewels said...

LMAO, you crack me up. That pee stick is over dark, I love it ((psst - will you poa-opk for me and post it somewhere, I'm so curious to see one work as a pregnancy test).

And the boob thing, you'll have to keep me posted, I have a salt water chest too, and I'm terrified of what will happen if I get KU. When I was nursing, my engorgement was as big as my boobies are now, (a C cup also) I don’t want to turn into a double "C" (lol, now who's the dork) But I also have nerve damage on my right side, so the bottom half of my boob is numb and my nipple suffers pain on occasion, and it is tender to the rough play, so I'm really scared of nursing on that side. Have you ever heard of someone nursing from one side? I wonder if I would be lop-sided.

Pink-CJ said...

Your not a dork. I pee on many sticks!!

starsgoblue said...

Best of luck to you!

docgrumbles said...

I POAS right before my last u/s, and I might just do another before the next one on Tuesday!

Jewels said...

When and Where are you gong to post belly pics?

Motel Manager said...

I've continued to POAS, too. Even though I could have miscarried two weeks ago and still would have enough HCG to darken the stick. It is a coping mechanism. :)

Morgan said...

Wow I thought I was the only one still testing with the word "loser" tattooed on my forehead! ;-)

Thats great you love your boobs...you go sexy momma!

AlmostMrsJoyner said...

Hope you haven't been tagged yet..But now, you have..Check out my blog for more details..

The Captain's Wife said...

I am equally a dork :) My Boobs are real and C, borderline D's (I know your jealous) but damn they started hurting this past Sunday and are getting worse by the minute! Not looking forward to them getting any bigger than they are!

And thanks for making my secret even more difficult!!

Kaci said...

Just popping in to wish you luck tomorrow. You're in my thoughts, but I'm confident things are just fine :)

jenn said...

Good luck tomorrow hon. One more hurdle to get over- here's to a nice smooth finish!


I'm actually nervous about the boobs thing myself. Mine are already a D & they are always sore after O, so can't imagine how big & painful they will get if I ever do get pregnant!
