Hi ladies. I'm also in my first TWW. How funny that so many of us are testing on our OH's birthdays? I am as well! September 8. AF is due that day anyway. FX for birthday presents for all of our men!
I haven't thought about how I will announce it yet because I'm so sure that I won't get pregnant our very first month trying.
You never know! I know many people that have gotten pregnant on their first month trying :P I hope you do!
My OH's birthday isn't until October 24th, so he'll actually know when I'm pregnant before I do. He's usually my test checker guy. I love that he does that for me, and I want to be able to video his reaction when I tell him to check on it after the timer goes off.
We are however, announcing to my grandmother and the world right around DH's birthday. My mommom's birthday is the 30th, and if we have a scan by then (IF I'm pregnant lol), we're going to give her a copy as a birthday gift!
AF is due on the day before my OH's birthday but as we are going for a meal I will have to test before, when the wine comes every one will know whats up if I decline! I don't know what that says about me LOL!! Im excited iv been doubting myself as some of the symptoms have eased however all we can do is wait and hope!
My OH already has 2 girls and has always said he wants a family with me and when ever it happens hes happy, I think the thought of "trying" scares him because he thinks if you try it may not happen but if you don't try and don't prevent you kind of wont know.. what woman wouldn't know? iv been obsessed with tracking since we had the talk but I guess we just have to see what happens
I'm trying not to symptom spot, but my lower back (just above my tailbone, probably from the gym) is really sore and my breasts are very sore (not sure if it has anything to do with the too much chocolate the past few days). Other than that, I'm feeling good!
It's now the morning of 3dpo for me (in the UK) and my nipples are even more sensitive now to the point where it's a little painful. I've never experienced this before, but since I haven't had a period in so long this could just be my new thing and I'll get to have it every month. Great
I hope my OH doesn't want to have sex this weekend, because if he does he'll have to keep his hands off my boobs and he'll be very disappointed hehe!
I just remembered that I woke up quite suddenly after falling asleep last night and went to the bathroom and was instantly almost sick. That's probably more to do with the takeaway I ate last night though!
3 dpo here in the US and my DH is asking when I can test, I think he's more anxious and excited than I am! He woke up saying one more week till we know if we're having a baby. He's so cute and supportive, but I'm having a kind of morning where I'm not sure if this is going to be our month. My symptoms are relatively gone, but yesterday they seemed to progress throughout the day. I'm just hoping that it's normal to have symptoms this early, but it's my first month off BC in 7 years, so I'm sure that's where they're coming from.
5 DPO here today. Tori, I'm having the same experience. I feel completely normal this morning. We'll see how the day goes. OH keeps asking if I'm pregnant as if I should just "know". Lol I keep telling him that I'm not so he's not disappointed wen I get a BFN. :/
My boobs aren't tender but they feel fuller. I think that's normal after all ovulations tho. And Ever since the wedding I've been gaining steady weight. (Just 5lbs). I lost a little too much to where I was skinnier than I like. So the breast fullness might be just some regaining of fat to the ladies
Apart from that, which might be a stretch itself, no symptoms so far!
Most medical (not anecdotal) information I've read says that you don't start getting symptoms until after implantation which isn't until 6-10 or more days after ovulation. So don't lose heart! We could still all be BFPs in a week or more! It's still so early!
To update my incident with the hubby saying he wasn't sure he was ready to be a dad: we had a talk about it the next day. He brought it up. He's very very open to it. I think it's just cold feet sort of thing. He reassured me that he'd be VERY excited of we got pregnant. It was good to hear.
That's great, Alicia. Good that you guys talked about it and he is fully on board
I have also read that symptoms don't show up until after implantation, but I have a hard time denying all the info from women who have fallen pregnant having certain symptoms more often than those who aren't pregnant. Throughout the day (TMI) I've had TONS of creamy CM. Not just a little bit here and there, but every time I use the bathroom there is a quarter size glob on the paper. I also experienced on and off pinching pains. Not bad, but uncomfortable enough to where I found myself moving to get comfortable. I've also taken an unintentional 1.5-2 hour nap every day since 3 DPO. Unusually tired.
Now here's what my overly rational mind says: the increased CM and pinching pains are due to so much BDing this cycle (Don't know if that makes a difference. It's been 3 days since we have done it). I haven't come up with a reasonable explanation for the exhaustion but I'm sure that I will.
