    LOL You're not kidding. I did the same thing last month when I thought I may have gotten pregnant. This because I thought I was spotting because of implantation. Although last time I was pregnant I didn't have implantation and I didn't have any symptoms until about 6 weeks pregnant....so I have nothing much to be watchful for but we're very good at making things up. My plan is not to do that this time!

    i thought i had all the symptoms even when my i got my first BFN i was sure i was pregnant and that AF was implantation bleeding and tested again!

    well this month i used opk to figure out when i Ov i'm praying that i get my BFP.

    if i don't though we have a holiday booked up for Christmas so we can carry on trying then and who knows! i know a few people that have holiday babies.... Finger Crossed!

    May I join you two ladies in the dreaded wait? I think I'm ovulating today but if not it would be tomorrow at the latest. I got a positive opk yesterday and today so we'll see. I still have the ovulation cramps so who knows. I convinced myself I was pregnant last month too. I tested after AF too, everything just felt different last month. I still kinda think I might have had a chemical pregnancy but I'll never know for sure. I could have sworn I saw a couple faint faint lines on test but my husband said I was crazy. They never got any darker though. Oh well here's to a lucky two week wait for all of us.

    I want to join - such a long wait. I am currently 3 dpo now...so tired of waiting.

    Thankfully we are seeing the RE tomorrow - super nervous, but time for a professional opinion for sure.

    Also thankful to have a wedding this weekend and a full work/shedule to keep my mind off of "waiting"

    I hope we have a successful thread!

    I'm 1 DPO also!! : )
    Last month was a total write off! My cycle was 10 days less then normal so I have no idea if or when I ovulated but the month before, I was symptom spotting like crazy and so convinced I was. The only downfall was, was that the "symptoms" I had were really just minor things so i'm gonna try and just focus on real symptoms haha although I don't see it happening. Gonna try and wait til 14 DPO to test as well :) possibly even 15-16 DPO! Good luck girls.

    It's the only way to go Amanda... i sometimes look through the :bfp: announcements and so many ladies on there get their bfp when they're not looking or waiting for it.... FX

    4 dpo - I am trying to ignore any symptoms I may have...trying not to get my hopes up this month. I have had such issues with spotting btn ovulation and AF that I always got my hopes up and think I am having implantation bleeding - now I am going to write it off as part of my normal cycle.

    Has anyone made lifestyle changes? I am struggling with my caffeine intake. I am tricking myself these days by use half decaf and half regular coffee. Anyone else doing things differently?

    good luck!!! I tested with OPK's & got positive reading for the first time ever & we BD'd the day before & on Ovulation day....so it's now just a waiting game.
    Ugh.

    The caffeine I've been as per usual but I haven't had a drop to drink since. I think I wouldn't eliminate the alcohol just yet however, I would minimize it. I've read a lot about this & until you get a positive reading, moderate drinking is OK. but still haven't brought myself to doing it. I'm used to this because I was pregnant not long ago & couldn't drink so it's not too difficult.

    Ahhh, yes, alcohol. I don't drink often maybe a glass of wine or a beer after work - here and there - but I definitly tend to have more when there is an event. I am struggling about what to do for the wedding saturday we have to go to. I want to enjoy myself, and have a release (been so incredibly stressed), however I am TWW right now...I usually test before events to make sure not positive - but this time I am only going to be 8 dpo - too early (I believe?). I have to indulge or atleast hold a drink because if my friends see me not drinking they will definitly think I am preggo and I don't want to explain things to them...

    Oh i totally understand not wanting to be different around your friends to avoid explaining things. Since being off birth control I feel sick now and then at different parts of my cycle and I'm so afraid my mom or someone is going to ask if I'm pregnant. I just don't want to get into those situations until I actually am. Luckily I'm not a big drinker of alcohol or caffeine but I have been trying to make little lifestyle changes in terms of what I eat. I have friends that got pregnant after one month and I asked her what she did. She got a book called cooking to conceive and ate a lot of recipees from that. I tried that for a month and it didn't work but I am trying to cook more instead of frozen foods just to have a little bit of healthy in my life. I have also heard that exercise is good for TTC unfortunately I just don't have the motivation to exercise yet. I'm finishing up my masters degree and though it isn't a good excuse I'm just exhausted all the time.

    Can I join in? I'm 1dpo and waiting is a pain already.

    BTW I drank when I was in early pregnancy. I didnt know. I was like a week. I had alot as well and my DS is fine. I wouldnt advise alot though, lol. Just have the recommended amount for a pregnant woman.

    Hi Litrinabelle - welcome!

    hopeforbfp - I haven't started eating differently, just trying to cut back on EVERYTHING - gained some weight since discontinuing medication in the summer. Not to conceive, BMI is still wnl, but for me and well, I have no clothes that fit and I don't want to buy any because I am hoping to by materny clothes soon (fxd).

    I understand the lack of motivation and I am a full-time student (working on a masters in Nursing) and I am still working full-time in labor and delivery - which is exhausting. I still play soccer on thursday nights but I don't go to the gym 2-3 days a week like I used to :nope:. I'm hoping to get back in the swing of things when the semster ends but for now, I just am tired and when I am not tired I have no time.

    Hi all you new ladies!!

    Well i haven't changed much in caffeine intake i only have like two cups of tea a day not a lover on coffee... (proper english girl :p)

    I did have maybe slightly bigger bbs but they've gone down now.... so not symptom searching but do feel that this isn't my month :cry: not sure why but only time will tell....

    Anyway as to the alcohol situation i have a couple of strawberry daiquiris last night with some friends... everyone around me is either pregnant or has a new baby and i feel like they're all watching me!! oh god...

    If this is my month i have no idea what i'm going to do December 18th! my in-laws are throwing a huge pre Christmas party at their place, i wouldn't want to tell anyone early so the lord knows how i'm going to get away with not drinking!!!

    i'll have to cross that bridge when i come to it.... if i ever do...
