I feel like I should start making a list of all the things I impulsively google during the two week wait. I bet it would be hilarious, all listed together.
No symptom spotting thus far, which is good because any symptoms would be in my head. Knowing that helps a lot, actually. And knowing that HCG doesn’t get produced until DPO 9 and later also helps.
I’ve dropped my caffeine amount from one pot of black tea with two heaping teaspoons, one shot of coffee, and one mug of green tea to one heaping teaspoon tea and the occasional mug of green tea. I don’t think I was actually having too much caffeine, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to cut back a little more. Besides, some days I was having a full pot of black, one or two mugs of green, and a cup (or two) of light-roast coffee, which taken all together was probably too much.
I’d rather err on the safer side, even though I’m sure I was doing fine. I was also curious to see what would happen, and so far I actually feel more awake in the afternoon. Now that could be because I’m also consistently getting 8+ hours of sleep, but, well. We’ll see.
I need more and better audiobooks to help pass the time at work. If anyone has any suggestions for totally engrossing and/or fast-paced books, I would love you for them. I like fantasy most, but I’ll take anything at this point. The time at work is definitely the hardest part of the two week wait for me, because my current work is about 10% engaging and 90% filler, so I am easily distracted and constantly find myself turning to google and search for various and sundry or simply staring off into the half-distance, wondering if it worked this time.
Did it work?? Did it?? Argh.
