It is HOT outside!

Man, oh man - it is hot outside today - The temp on my car thermometer said 103. 103??? I don't live in the desert or the rainforest. Damn. I think that my contacts actually fogged up when I walked outside for lunch today!

I want to let everyone know how much I appreciate the supportive comments and well wishes. The ride has been a long one and it is not even close to being over - I make it through each day knowing that my blog friends are going through this with me and really understand what IF is all about. You guys rock!

The news yesterday was great. My first real BFP. I am excited... however, I know that there are many milestones ahead. So, I am trying not to get too excited.

As far as symptoms go - I really haven't had any. My boobs are a little sore - but it varies from day to day. The lack of symptoms has stressed me out. On Monday night, I scoured the web looking for other people's experiences. Most people had cramping of some sort. When I didn't have any I was worried. Oh well, I can't micromanage my body......even though I try sometimes.

We are staying busy trying to manage the foster care placement situation - my case worker is out all week on an emergency (as is her supervisor); thus I am starting to get worried that J won't be here by the week of the 20th. I really want him to be able to go with us on vacation and have some good quality time with us before school starts. I will call the on-call worker again each day until I have some resolution....

I just wanted to let you know that I didn't have any symptoms until after my BFP, and even then it was only sore boobs for the first couple weeks. No cramping, and everything seems to be going smoothly. So don't worry about a lack of cramps.

Good luck getting everything in order with the foster care placement.

Good luck with you case worker. and that awesome BFP symptom watch

Don't worry too much about not having so many symptoms - remember there are women in this world that didn't know they were pregnant until 3 months and even later!

Just take great care of yourself and the lil one - your hubby too. :)

I didn't really have any symptoms for a few weeks either. I think we get so use to reading about fertile people that knew before they even got their BFP because of this or that symptom and we expect the same thing. In time you'll have more indications that you are in fact pregnant and it will feel great!

Hope things with the foster placement turn out the way you hope!

I'm working on staying cool too. It's just so hot outside!! It's just so draining.

Good luck with your foster placement!! This could really be a fantastic year for you and your hubby! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you guys on everything. And I hope the symptoms come enough to reassure you, but not so much that feel horrible.

Sorry I got so excited I commented on the wrong post earlier. I'm just catching up on blogs today. I think its quite normal to not have any symptoms so early in this stage. Good luck with the foster placement as well and hope the weather cools down.
