I am day 15 of my cycle right now. Hate the second half!! I am also refusing to test before AF is late. We are TTC #1 for 2 years. Every month I lose a little bit of faith on myself. Forums like this one is what keep me going sane...
I ovulated on the 4th, and have a blood pt on the 18th, because of the injectables I took I could have a false positive pt if I tested before the 18th, this is hard because I am a POAS addict.. having been TTC #1 since 10/2010, I buy internet cheapies in bulk.
However this cycle is different... maybe I will POAS on the 17th, because the meds will be out of my system by then, however, blood pt on the 18th is what I should do.
Hi Ladies...may I join as well? Count me in! My AF is due on April 17th. I am currently 10dpo. I plan on testing Monday actually. I just don't want to test to early and be disappointed. DH and I have been TTC since last September. I got pregnant in December only to suffer an early MC in January . This is my second cycle TTC after my MC. Really hoping this will be our month as TTC has been such an emotional rollercoaster. Fx'd for all of us and sending lots of
Any symptoms?? The only symptom I have had this cycle is sore nips/ usually I get tender bbs on the sides, but thsi month only the sore nips. Hopefully I good sign..
In Sterio: you are still early.. maybe hold out for one more day and then
Yeah. I only have 4 days left until AF and I see that a lot of people aren't really getting clear BFP's until then so think I'm going to "try" and hold out until Monday. If not, I might take a cheapie on Saturday or something, but definitely just want to see if AF shows. At least if she doesn't that is unusual for me. my cycle is very on time all the time, so I would know just by that that something is different. Even in my most stressful times it's still be on time without fail.
As for symptoms my earliest ones were heavy ness in the bladder/lower abdomen area, frequent urination, irritability, and slightly more emotional than usual.
My current symptoms have been queasy last night and this morning. Last night I actually thought I would throw up, but then it kind of passed after a while. This morning I was so hungry, but didn't want to eat. Forced myself to eat a little something and then felt sick after that. Almost stayed home all day because I thought I'd be sick. Ended up eating some saltines and that helped the queasy tummy quite a bit. I've had some cravings and aversions, which obviously could be AF or BFP, but I've wanted mexican food (any kind) and like I am noticing smells others arent... like the smell of bark and the smell of smoke. The bark was in the back of a landscaping truck that was empty and my DH couldnt smell it, but I was like WOW IT REAAAALLY SMELLS LIKE BARK RIGHT NOW and had to look around. Also, emotional. Im getting butt hurt over everything. fatigue and insomnia. So I can't sleep past 4-6am when normally I sleep until 9am. Then I wake up and today I took a nap for 2.5 hours mid-day because I was so tired after not sleeping for the last few days. Also going to bed at 10-11pm instead of 1-2am. So a complete shift in my sleeping schedule. Tender nipples and sides of my breasts. Hot flashes mostly at night, but sort of feeling flu-like. Hot in the face, but cold and just generally like blah feeling.
I've checked my CM a few times, but it really seems to vary. Sometimes it' been EW, but not a lot of it and a couple times it's been stretchy and colored just slightly yellowish. So idk. Also, I was trying to figure out what my cervix would feel like, but it seems like there isn't even a straight forward answer for that if you're BFP. Yesterday mine felt soft on top, but hard underneath. no real opening to it. I haven't checked it at all today to see what it seems like today.
Everyone post back with your results after you test. Baby dust to all.
mimi1979: welcome! Sorry for your loss fx this is your cycle!
Insterio: Symptoms sound promising! Is the nausea normal for you? I rarely feel nausea.. I would say Sunday is a safe day to test. Whenever i see others getting their early -I start to feel tempted to but then I just put it aside and tell myself to stay
How is everyone else holding up? According to FF I am 9 dpo... no symptoms to speak of except, these darn sore nips Usually before AF I am super irritable, suuuuuper emotional, and bbs sore.. not this month- feeling pretty
