Looking for a little advice!


Hey Everyone

I found this forum after obsessively searching symptoms (while pretending I'm not symptom spotting) and thought someone at least might be able to help.

My period was due 3 days ago. I tested the day it was due with an Asda's Own test (are these normally reliable?) I thought I saw a positive developing, until the test time was up and nothing was to be seen. BFN.

I'm getting cramps on and off, which feel slightly lower than my normal cramps. And I have a "wetness" feeling where I keep going to the bathroom thinking AF has arrived, when in fact it's a very creamy (like lotion, non stretchy) CM. And I always have to pee when I'm there any ways.

My boobs feel a lot fuller, and my areola are noticeably darker. Which sometimes happens before AF, but my areola are also larger (I'd guess at least 1cm width wise) and my OH has started joking about how they're "taking over the world" so I know it's not just in my head.

My emotions are all over. I'm crying at everything and absolutely nothing, this has been going on for about 10 days. I cried at According to Jim, storylines on WWE, Omen, news stories.. even some of those obviously fake stories that pop up on Facebook or Tumblr.

Basically, all the typical symptoms. But as of this morning I've had a metallic taste in my mouth, and a sickness feeling - like when you haven't eaten for a little too long and your hunger turns to sickness. I know I'm not actually going to be sick.

I think I must be going crazy, as I did an internet cheapie strip test yesterday which was another negative. I've been advised to give it until Saturday and test again as my hormone levels might not be high enough yet?

If I were to be pregnant, I'd be around 4 weeks and 3 days now. Is it possible to still get negatives at this stage? I'm planning on getting a clear blue on Saturday if AF doesn't show before hand, I just don't want to waste money on another negative if this is it.

I think I just need a ray of hope, or a reality check. I have the mindset of not being out until AF shows up, but it's driving me crazy.

TIA

I am in exactly the same boat! AF was due saturday, i tested friday and yesterday morning with clearblues and both BFN! So dishearting. But im with you on thinking i am until AF arrives. Ive had a bad back and slight cramping for a week now. Boobs are heavier and fuller but not sore to touch just aching. Broken out in spots all over my face! Feeling sick but not being sick. People have advised me to wait until saturday so i will prob try and hold out until then to test again. I just hate all the waiting im so impaitent. There is still hope if AF hasnt arrived.
Gd Luck, hope you get your BFP this weekend.

Nice to know I'm not the only one. Hope you get your BFP this weekend too, the wait is the worst! I did read it's pretty common to not get a positive until about 5 weeks, so I'm holding onto that.

My skin has changed too, spots everywhere! I only normally get one killer spot on my forehead or chin pre-AF. Bodies are just very weird things.

Thank you. I normally just get the one or two. With my first pregnancy i disnt know i was pregnant, but when i tested, i tested 6-7weeks after the last AF, and they waant veey strong lines. So im taking this into account at the moment.

I think because alot of women can get their BFP's early it kinda makes you think that your out for this month. But even with BFN and no AF still there is always a chance.

How are you feeling this morning, Lianne_Lucy? Still no AF for me.

Everything else is the same but, this morning when I was walking our dog, I started getting lower back pains - I have constant upper back pain from working in an office with less than great posture and horrible chairs, but the lower back pain has started outweighing it. Hoping this is a good sign. Never been so happy to have back pain!

3 days until we can test!

Hi. Im feeling hopeful. Feeling a little sick and feel like i need a huge sugar rush (feel a but weak). Other than that everything else is the same no AF still got real bad lower back pain. Had AF like cramps last night when i went to bed but this morning nothing.
Keep going to the loo because (maybe too much info here) i feel a little wet and keep thinking AF has arrived but just small bits of white CM.
My mood the last couple of days has been very short :-/ could be AF or pregnancy.

Im hoping these are all good signs.
Any other changes for you? xx

Not TMI, I have that too!

I went to bed last night at 8:30 because I was so stinking tired, and had nodded off on the sofa already. But couldn't get comfortable enough to go too sleep for nearly 2 hours, mostly due to back pain. Slept for 8 hours, so technically enough, but I'm so tired now.

I'm moods are all over, with a very short temper. Just so hoping I get a BFP now, as otherwise I think I'm losing it completely

I managed to sleep almost 8hours our little one is nearly 2 and doesnt like much sleep, but he slept in until 8am this morning which was lovely!
I feel shattered today could really so with a nap, i hoping either AF arrives very soon or i get a bfp. Im not sure how many more months of mother nature kicking my butt i can handle :-) xx

Keeping my fingers crossed for you that she doesn't! Still no AF this morning, managed to not test too so still holding out for Saturday! (I might end up testing tomorrow though..)

I thought AF ha started earlier but it was just more creamy CM. what's up with that?! Boobs still ache and all the rest. OH is starting to refer to "our baby" and my parents are getting excited. I need to stop being so open with people as a BFN is going to break at least 3 more hearts than just mine.

Had soup for my dinner today though, first mouthful made me feel sick but I finished it. Things are smelling stronger too, my stomach was flipping last night over some milk I was using for tea.

Lets see what tomorrow brings I guess! Hope you're feeling well xx
