Does anyone else find this weird?

So our neighborhood has a Faceb.ook group page to help bring our little community together. I get posts from our group nearly every day for things like, "free recliner to a good home," or "anyone recommend a good plumber." Never, ever, would I have thought the following post to ever show up and I'm kind of weirded out by it.

Really? You don't have a friend or coworker that could use them? You do realize that teenage kids are part of this group right? Is it just me?

In other news, we are spotting free right now at 5w5d. I'm praying that this streak continues. I just got my PIO in the mail today and Hammer is out of town starting today as well. Looks like I'm going to get pretty good at giving myself IM shots. I also think that this wait until the ultrasound is getting more difficult. I just want to know what is going on. With everything that has happened to us it's hard not to think of this not being any different. Will there even be a baby? What if my levels are no longer rising? I wish that I could ignore these fears but miscarriage leaves it scars. I'm questioning what symptoms I have and wondering if they are pregnancy or progesterone related. My boobs are veiny but really only sore in the morning, I do have increased sense of smell but I had that in the 2ww, I've had a pretty big appetite, mild cramping and flutters, the last two days I had mild nausea in the morning but that could be due to the recent consistent dose of PIO before bed, and I have to drink nearly 100 oz of water to keep from being dehydrated. I don't have to pee all the time but I also have a retroverted uterus so maybe I won't feel that for a while. Today I noticed that my mouth is constantly watering and my ginger ale tasted horrible as well as some other foods. I'm just really ready for next Wednesday to know if this pregnancy is going well, until then we are doing A LOT of praying.

Just wanted to let you know I am thinking of you. This 2WW is the hardest one of all. I really hope this is it for you and Hammer.

I don't know if you can do this with PIO, but I had to take IM shots for estrogen during our FETs and had to give them to myself. The hip wasn't very easy for me, so I was able to give in the thigh. Much easier to reach and then I could rotate spots and have a little more time in between cheeks...

Okay...the mouth watering is a huge pregnancy that is a gooooood thing.

and yes...that FB posting about TTC and clear blue easy was just a little TMI if you ask me!

I know how hard this is...we had a m/c of twins our very first pregnancy so all other pregnancies were just full of anxiety. I totally know how you feel and these early days are the worst. hang in there...only a bit over a week before the u/s AND...yay for no more spotting!
