Menstrual Cycle Day 23
What is happening internally?
The corpus luteum continues to release high amounts of progesterone to maintain the uterine lining. If conception occurred the zygote (fertilized egg) is increasing in size and growing every day. The amounts of hCG have doubled.
Basal body temperatures remain high above the coverline. If conception occurred - you may see a third thermal shift known as triphasic. This is due to the extra progesterone being released to maintain the uterine lining. Cervix is low, firm and closed. Cervical fluid is dry or it may become creamy or sticky. You may experience bloating or water retention. You may experience a headache. If conception occurred you may have to urinate frequently and may or may not experience food cravings/aversions. Fatigue is another early symptom of pregnancy you may feel.
