I googled it yesterday because I had these terrible intense cramps at 5 DPO, and I found out that it is ever so slightly possible if the egg hatches and right away implants, but I think the chance is very low. I am convincing myself that it couldn't have been yesterday, otherwise I'll get line eye looking at all the tests.
Interesting! Good plan though. I don't want to obsess but it's hard. I feel totally normal today other than I'm really tired. I have a shorter luteal phase than most, it is usually only 11-12 days and by this time I am usually a raging PMS monster (I get super sore boobs, bloat, cranky, cramp pretty bad, and tired...yeah PMS is fun for me LOL). Right now, I am tired but that's it. So it really doesn't feel like my period will be here in 5 days like usual. I know those are all pregnancy signs too, but I don't think they start until the hcg hits you which is a few days after implantation? I still have CF too which is not normal for me either.
Nerissav you sound like me... I'm noticing that cramping, too! I'm think I'm only 10dpo, but last time I got preg it happened on this cycle day so I'm playing mind games thinking "I have to get a BFP by today or I'm not pregnant" - it's cruel. I've already taken like 5 Wondfos and 2 FRER, studying them in the light like a scientist in a lab... ha, I feel so ashamed to admit this!! Of course they were all neg. Time to just relax & let mother nature do her thing.
LOL This is why I'm scared to test early! I know I'll squint and stare at it forever in the light too, if there's no obvious line. I'm only 6 DPO so obviously no testing yet. I usually get my period at 11-12 DPO, so I was going to test Saturday at 11 DPO but I know that's still early and I think I'll obsess LOL I have like 6 tests stocked up though so I could start on 11 DPO and test every day after that.
