I feel like an emotional mess today, started yesterday actually but today is much worse. I had a faint positive test yesterday and a negative today. If AF shows it wont be until next Wed 3/16, well thats when it should be if I am not pregnant, I feel like if I was pregnant that this is really early to be having mood swings but I keep getting upset and just crying, and my whole body feels sore. I am 10 dp trigger and 8 dpIUI could these be reactions to the trigger shot? I am not sure. Some of what I feel makes me feel like AF is coming I normally have massive mood swings from that but not usually teary mood swings and I had alot of nausea last night I was freezing cold for a few hours then all the sudden I ate and got hot and had to open front door and turn heat off completely to get air cuse felt like I was going to be sick. Have any of you had syptoms like this from femara or trigger?

I know the roller coaster that you are on...it is NOT fun. The mood swings, soreness, and a lot of other symptoms could definitely be caused by the trigger shot. It is the pregnancy hormone that you are injecting into yourself, so your body thinks it is pregnant while the shot is in your system.

The positive yesterday and the negative today could be from the trigger leaving your system...8DPO is too early for a BFP! I know it is really hard, but try to be positive and keep testing...that BFP might show up in the next few days. Seems weird to say this, but I hope you keep feeling crappy for the next few months

I have mood swings, lack of motivation and lots of negative thoughts from both Femara and the HCG trigger. Hope you feel better soon. I try telling myself "This is just the hormones doing the thinking right now."
