post #81 of 1307
Hey all,
I wish I had found this thread sooner! AF was due today but I've probably POAS about 5 times before now! No sign of AF coming so far. I've had a TON of symptoms so if I'm not pregnant, then I am definitely crazy! Severe headaches and backache the past 4 days (usually only get AF backache the day she arrives), grumbling tummy all the time, very short of breath when running - I run 4x a week usually no sweat but my endurance has been shot for the last week and I can barely make it 20 mins before stopping. Pretty pooped all last week compared to normal. And I have been more bloated than ever before for 4 days! BFN with a store brand EPT today although I think I almost imagined the faintest blue line there lol. This is our first month ttc #2

So seriously, I am embarrassed to have shared these symptoms in the case I am not pregnant but I had to get it out. Good luck mamas

AF is due tomorrow.  I've tested negative twice and am doing my utmost to wait another few days to test again.  I've also been reading into every little twinge my body is feeling and wondering if it's all in my head!  I just came across this site that gives an alternative reason for every possible early pregnancy symptom:   http://www.babiesonline.com/articles/pregnancy/earlysignsofpregnancy.asp 

 

Not to be a total bummer, but I felt like it was a good reality check for me & might be for those of us lingering in the gray area. 

 

Only time will tell!

Hello everyone, glad I found this thread. We DTD on Sunday, and I think I ovulated the following day, or maybe as late as yesterday, I'm not sure. I haven't been charting because we started a month earlier than planned. But I'm certainly feeling a bit funny. I've had random cramps, and I've been feeling nauseous on and off since yesterday. At the moment I feel pretty blah. I think I feel a bit warmer as well. But it's probably wishful thinking more than anything, as it seems like it might be a bit soon for symptoms. But at the same time I keep getting this feeling that I may be pregnant. AF is due around the 27th, so a bit of a wait yet!

 

Good luck everyone else!

Oh!  lisad and Joy2Grow, I'm in the same situation!  AF is due today or tomorrow, I've had 5 BFN but I really thought (or maybe still think?) that I am pregnant.  I felt implantation cramping and I've had (for me) telltale vaginal discharge.  I've been totally fatigued (way less energy than my 3 year old- falling asleep before her even!)  and moody but not in a PMS way.  

 

Obviously time will tell but I also know that with #1 I got negatives up to and after AF was due.  It took 4 days before I got a faint BFP.  

 

It's so hard though to wait but also hard to not know if I should trust my own body!  Good luck to you both and to everyone else on the list.

lisad1, I know exactly how you feel! I'm about 11DPO, and if I'm not pregnant then I am definitely crazy. I guess crazy isn't the worst thing you could be. I'll be testing next Tuesday if AF hasn't shown up by then.

Up until now I've not had a single urge to POAS, I did on mothers day just in case and that would be cool, but no luck then I promised I'd wait till the 14th and now I can't wait.

 

I think I'm at 13 DPO, if I Od, my period is due the 14th but so far no cramps *knock on wood* which usualy come a few days before AF. But since we traveled alot this cycle I didn't temp so I dont even know id I O'd or not.

 

I didn't think the wait would be this bad.

This helps me feel a bit better :) I really feel pregnant but still got a BFN yesterday (1 day after AF was due). Gonna test again this morning! My 3 year old has been nursing like a maniac lately and told me that "my milk is empty" twice. Could your supply change this soon if you were pregnant?

Me neither - I feel terrible for those who have to do it for a year or more! Once is enough for me. Although I just keep thinking I can't possibly be lucky enough to get pregnant the first month with both babies!

Good luck - keep us posted!

LOL I'm right there at that virtual meeting with you...

 

post #92 of 1307

I missed my period yesterday but still have a BFN.  I'm really frustrated... I feel like I'm pregnant but still don't have any proof. 

 

I thought I'd share some info I digged up from BabyMD (I don't know anything about the site but they had lots of useful and sane articles).  One article I read emphasized that only 40% get a BFP on a HPT before their missed period and that 50% get a BFP on the day of a missed period. 

 

In another article they explained the reasons for the delay in BFPs for some people... I'm copying it below in case it helps others in this thread:

 

From: http://www.babymed.com/early-positive-pregnancy-test-after-implantation

 

"Urine (Home HPT) Pregnancy Test: The urine pregnancy test will usually not become positive in most women until a missed period or about a week after implantation. Many manufacturers of urine pregnancy tests want you to believe that the urine test is usually positive before a missed period, but only about 25% of pregnant women will test positive with the HPT 2 days before a missed period, and about 40% the day before the missed period.
 

The wide variation of when the urine pregnancy test becomes positive and how early can pregnancy be detected are due to four variables which determine when the home urine pregnancy test becomes positive:

  1. Timing of Implantation
  2. Blood hCG levels
  3. Urine hCG level (eg.how concentrated or diluted the urine is)
  4. Sensitivity of the pregnancy test

2. Blood hCG Level
There is a wide normal variation of hCG levels, both in the blood and the urine and this wide range changes the diagnosis of how early can pregnancy be detected. If a woman has low blood hCG levels, for example, then it can take several more days for it to show up on a pregnancy test.

3. Urine hCG Level
Urine hCG levels change over the course of the day depending on how much you drink and how diluted or concentrated the urine is. Urine pregnancy testing is best done with more concentrated urine. So how early can pregnancy be detected depends on the urine concentration. If you drink a lot of fluid, the urine may be too diluted early on in pregnancy to achieve an hCG concentration adequate enough for a positive test."

 

 

So should I try not to drink all day?  :)

 

Good luck everyone!

I appreciate you posting this, Parsley.  I also tested this morning and got a BFN. Thing is I did so at 3am after only being asleep for 4hrs because that the minimum time frame suggested and I couldn't control my urge to test.  I woke up 4 hrs after that and felt massive regret for caving in the middle of the night.  I know being so anxious is not helping the possibility that a fertilized egg has the best chance to survive.  This is my first month TTC and I've been so distracted and overwrought!!  Oh, dear. 

 

I also feel a strong possibility that I am in fact pregnant.  Knowing the odds of that happening and the odds of testing positive so early helps mentally, but not as much emotionally.  Seems like this whole process is a key time to practice surrender and trust.  Change my focus to that and make it a spiritual quest rather than needing so badly to fill a void, to have a life sharing mine in a way only another mother can understand.  I'm going to try my best to ease up and calm down.  om.gif

I'm out. AF made her unwelcome arrival.  Will be charting and planning for the next time!  Good luck to all of you still waiting.

Love what you wrote below, joy2grow. Blessings to you as you start a new cycle.

Ack. I caved. I POAS, digital so it would be easy to read. What did I get? I got a blank screen. duh.gif

I think I'll wait now. I only have two left and they seem more precious now.

post #97 of 1307

Well it appears I have implantation bleeding! I've also noticed a few other things, but again I'm trying not to be too hopeful. I got emotional over a documentary I was watching today, which never happens. Also, my 2 year old daughter has suddenly become very clingy, and I know that happened to a friend of mine too. It also seems like my intuition is telling me I'm pregnant too. I'll be so disappointed if I'm not after all this!

post #98 of 1307

Can I join this thread? I'm waiting as well. I got a +opk on the 3rd at night and the 4th in the am. So does this make me 7dpo?  Online charts say AF is due on the 21st. I never got early symptoms with the other kids so I'm not expecting anything other than a +test... I stupidly tested today and yesterday lol. Stark white of course. I had some serious sharp pains below today, very odd shooting pains like through my bottom. Not sure if that means anything but never had that before. I'm really cranky and impatient with DH and the kids but I'm trying to relax. This next week is going to be very long I can tell.

post #99 of 1307

:( I am out - AF showed up today. Turns out I am insane after all - I even swear I saw the faintest line on a FR test this morning LOL.

Although - maybe this is TMI but AF is very different than usual - it started out as dark brown/black and thick and kinda freaked me out. Maybe because it came a few days late? That's never happened before so it was kinda freaky. See you in a couple of weeks when the new 2ww begins :)
