Hey Farmerswifey, what a great idea! I love the idea of rewarding yourself for not testing early! I might copy you, personally I was just using the thought of feeling awful if I got a BFN to get me through but yours is much more exciting!!!
Wow lots of newbies! Welcome, Arimas, Sanone and Jetset. Wishing you lots of BFP's!!! Any symptoms to report? (sorry I love symptom spotting!).
I feel much more positive today (8DPO) but had a massive temp drop so keeping everything crossed that it goes back up again tomorrow. Also a couple of sharp stabs to the right of my belly button but once again nothing major!!! Boobs feel normal and bloating slightly better today thank goodness! I was looking really large!
Hey guys well I am either 4 or 5dpo and definitely need to try and hold out on the testing I go crazy every month and just get so disappointed, the hubby gets wild at me for spending all the money. So not to sure when af is due last month was a 29 day cycle so I will be testing on the 4th April. Symptoms are slightly sore boobs. Weird pulling pains in my right side near my hip as well as very dry mouth and needing to pee slot more oh and also high soft closed cervix and high temps.
Aha Farmers Wifey ... you need to keep thinking about the facts! It takes approx 7-10 days for implantation to occur after fertilisation and then at least 48 hours for the HCG to build up in your urine! Unless you implanted immediately it would not show and you would be disappointed! Stay strong Stay strong!!!
I'm happier as my temp has gone up again! Phew! Still no real symptoms and no sore boobs (which is what I had before when I was PG) so not sure what to think! I think NOT thinking is the order of the day! hmmm how to do that?!!!
hey ladies, finally back now after a long weekend! thanks beetle, reunion with OH was wonderful, altough he was the one who fell asleep... haha - it took him 12 hours to get home from france (crash on m25 and he landed in gatwick, so it was a looong journey home!)
welcome everyone else who joined our very supportive thread, i can assure you that beetle and morticia are the best online friends in this www! for you two girlies!
8 dpo today, super tired, emotional and sooo easily angry at everything! high, firm, closed cp, sticky cm, still relatively high temps (36.7C). yesterday i founf a tiny bit of brown spotting in my undies, fingers xed it was from implantation, altough i didnt have a temp dip...
sooo hard not to test when reading that some other women had a bfp on 8dpo, but as i have you lot here i think i can resist! i am trying really hard!
anyways, MORT where are you hunny?! how was the award event?
good luck ladies, catch up soon! and beetle - i am thinking of you and your parents, its a hard time but all three of you are very strong people and i know you can get through this! lots of love!!
Aw thanks Bumble Wow your symptoms sound really positive! Hopefully you didn't get angry with your sleepy OH?!
I'm OK now after my emotional wobble at the weekend? Could be hormones or could be the build up of stress of my poorly folks. I'm being positive though. Have persuaded mum to have some acupuncture and also to take some chinese herbs called Reishi mushrooms which are supposed to counterbalance the nasty side effects of Chemo! Fingers crossed they help!
Re my symptoms. Sadly not much compared with you and I'm one day ahead of you! Boobs slightly larger and more tender in p.m.but that's about it. hmmm. Maybe not my month me thinks!
Plutosblue - impressed at your stamina by holding on until 16DPO - wishing you lots of Babydust and fingers crossed!
Farmerswifey - how are you holding up today? No tests? What is your reward for today?!
Kirstie .. your symptoms sound positive although I haven't heard about pimples on the chest before! Really hope its a BFP sign!
Mort ... where are you? Hope the awards went well?!
I absolutely love this thread! So glad I have you lot for support!
Beetle - I had a long soak in a bubble bath for my reward today! It was actually fab and took my mind off things for a while. We both get to test on Saturday right? I have one stick left from last month and I not going to buy anymore - there is no way I can cheat!!! Yay! Tomorrows reward is going to be some delicious baked goods - but I do have to bake them first! lol! I hope everything is going well for you Beetle. Are you doing the reward thing?
Bumble - things sound good for you right now!! I would be soooo positive if they were my symptoms. When are you going to be testing?
I havent been feeling as positive as I have done in past months. Feel like this isnt my month somehow as I really dont have any symptoms that couldnt relate to my period coming. Just the usual things that could be either...e.g headaches and emotional.
Just have to wait and see but Im sure I will be trying again next month. It would just be too perfect to have worked this time. Oh well.
Hey Farmerswifey, yes, Saturday is the day (arrrggh!) although I'm pretty sure it will be BFN as I was a week late when I got my BFP back in November ... so really a 3WW for me! Still it maybe that it was because all wasn't right as I MC at 6.5weeks. So that's the main reason for me not testing early! I love your treats though and am so glad its working for you so far!
Bumble, we need an update on your symptoms! How are you?!!!
And Mort ... where have you gone? Hope you are OK and not too busy?
I'm OK. Still bloated (feel really unattractive, sort of muffin top thing going on .. not nice!), but aside from that fleeting BB pain but most weird thing is really sore eyes. Even my eyeballs hurt! And a very specific headache just above my right eye that comes and goes. Doubt this is a pregnancy symptom but v. annoying! Ah well!
How's everyone else getting on? You all gone quiet as you've tested early and feel guilty?!!!
