I'm 6dpo today and I'm not sure that this cycle is unlike the rest. I've been cramping with sore bbs since ovulation, and I expect it will last until AF - it does this some cycles; I'm not sure why, but it's really uncomfortable and annoying. I also get an unusually heightened sense of smell about this time during some cycles, and everything suddenly smells good. No idea what that's about. Aside from all that, here's what's different today:
- my cramps changed from pinchy and sharp to generally achy;
- I have loads of creamy cm. Usually at this point in my cycle I only have creamy or sticky cm up near my cervix when I check cp, so this abundance seems noteworthy;
- Two of my co-workers (separately) mentioned that they were glad to see me so happy and "bubbly" today. This really threw me off bc I do not *feel* bubbly - work is really busy and I've been stressed for weeks - today was no different - feeling like I'm barely making it, but two different people noticed a positive change in me. Idk what this means, but by the time a second person said something about the change, I have to admit I wonder... Oh! And then the female coworker who said something asked in the same convo if I want children. Isn't that bizarre...
Anyway, that's where I am
. My energy and enthusiasm for this wait is definitely waning. I could reasonably test in five or six days, but idk, I might wait for missed AF. Thoughts and support welcome.
