Last month we had a chemical pregnancy and I felt strong symptoms like nausea and sensitivity to smells. This month I'm not feeling much at 8 dpo, though pretty exhausted today (although it is Friday!). A little queezy this morning after dancing around with my toddler, not sure what that means. But, I'm holding out to test until next week!
Trying4four- yes I am charting... temps were going up until today.. slight drop
Juliet - I hear you on the symptom spot, its' hard not too. Today I kept getting wierd twinges and I am thinking hmmmm possible? Then I felt like AF came early and ran to the bathroom and just a lot of creamy cm...
Well almost 60 plus hours to go and then I'm TESTING!!! But not a second before!
Mama31- super tired too.. thinking it's time for a nap on this Fri the 13th!
Although I am quite a bit behind you, only 4dpo, I don't want to test early either. This is our 4th cycle TTC. Don't know how I feel about this cycle, feel fairly optimistic, but every now and then fear the worst. Just the normal then!
It's my 18th month of TTC #1 and it just gets so tiring after awhile...
Although we found out last year of some infertility issues, had a LAP in December,
and this is the second normal cycle (w/help of meds and IUI) since the LAP...
So if this fails, two more month of meds and then IVF for us :/
I O'd on the 4th.... so if I can just wait till Monday I will be proud of myself..... Doctor put in blood PT for 18th.
I am feeling crampy.... kind of like a pre-period cramp. Getting nervous that I am out, but not until the witch shows!!
So is 12 DPO the earliest one should test?
The reason my doctor has me doing a blood pt on Wednesday is because I was on injectables that can give a false positive on hpt... I was weak and tested a few days ago, negative, so I wonder if I can test on Monday because that would 11-12 DPO. I don't think I can wait till Wednesday for the blood pt. I know, I am obsessing.
Juliet11- I can't imagine how you must be feeling.. I never ever thought two years ago when my DH and I decided to officially starty TTC that it would be so tough... I really miss those first couple cycles of TTC when we were both giddy every month hoping to see the Fast forward with one loss and both of us going through extensive testing only to be told "unexplained infertility" We have been given the same options as you, but decided II would try one year of TCM (traditional chines medicine) with acupuncture weekly. The good news is that when it takes this long to make a - That baby will have no doubt in his/her mind how loved they are by their parents. I really hope this is your BFP cycle. Hang in there...
ps.. if you have already tested and didn't see any line from injectibles I think you are safe to Test again - I think 12 dpo is very safe to see a BFP! And early AF symptoms are usually a good sign unless, this is usual for you..
