Is it okay to start an "I'm not sure if I am yet" thread? - Page 2

post #21 of 47

post #22 of 47
im still here.. still no moon (im 10 days late now) but i still havn't tested. i did a tarot reading though and it said pretty clearly that yes, (it actually said Yes, you will expand and grow) so when i get the nerve up to test or start feeling the baby move i guess i will know for *sure*

post #24 of 47
Congrats!!!

I'm still here too. No af yet. I felt a little crampy the other day and had some brownish spotting but that went away. I still have some nausea when I don't eat for awhile and in the morning. Still very tired and very cranky. I feel like I could cry or scream at any point and I keep snapping at dh. But... Still no + : The other day I kept feeling weird while I was walking and I couldn't figure out why. Today I realized that my breasts were kind of getting in the way of my arm laying flat, if that makes sense. They seem kind of fuller and today even seemed a little sensitive, nothing to cringe over but just a little noticeable. Even dh said they look bigger (but he firmly believes that I am not pg while I keep wavering). I feel so : and don't know what is going on. I have been using the cheapie dollar tests and I'm beginning to wonder if that's the problem. Though, of everyone I know that has used the same test, the only ones who got a neg on that test and a pos on a different type ended up miscarrying. I just used my last test today (neg, obviously) so I'm just going to wait it out a little longer. If af hasn't shown up by the 25th I'll test again. But for now, I'm done.

Whew! Sorry for the book! But no one knows that I'm even considering being pg besides dh so I've got all these thoughts bottled up!

I am still here, but mostly because I have not had a chance to buy a test. I am 99% sure I am. I have never been more than 1 day late except when I am preg and I am now 4 days late and i have been getting weird twiches in the uterus area for the past 2 days. I also could not fit into my Jeans this morning :cry. I work really hard over the last year and lost just over 30 lbs, I have not gained any weight, but there was no way I could button my jeans this morning. They were tight at the end of last week, and I have been wearing sweats the last few days. On the bright sode, I now have lots more pants, because I am now the same size as DH again.

I guess I better join this thread. I am 6 days late and I am a very regular kind of gal. So, I'd bet that I am pg, but I haven't tested yet. I'm going to wait a bit to test. In my previous pregnancies, it always took us some time to get pg and I was always counting down the minutes until I was officially late and testing a.s.a.p. and very often testing before that. Man, I was neurotic - lol. It didn't even occur to me until today that I might be pg. But, I am going to take it nice and easy. No freaking out to test. I'll test by June 1st for sure, if my dh hasn't talked me into it by then.

I am right there with you. I've had those little twitches too and my pants are tight. I'm sitting here in pants that are not buttoned right now - lol And, these were always my loose, comfortable capris.

Oh, and we just started Feingold in our house. I saw it in your siggy. Today is day 3 for us. We are going it for the benefit of my three year old mostly, which will benefit all of us. Already I see an improvement in his behavior.

glad I am not the only one . I got huge really fast with my last baby, so I am not too suprised, but my SIL is due in July and has all my maturnity clothes, so I hope I don't need them for a while.

Feingold is a lifesaver in our house we have been doing it for almost 2 years. My oldest goes completly crazy if she is "off". Hope it goes well, I am happy to answer any questions about it if you need help.

i am also now officially late as of today, but i am still going to wait to test. in the past tests showed up negative if i tested right away. i am also having twinges in the lower abdominal area. i have been for a week now though, which i thought was sort of early. but really i guess i just feel weird down there.

I'm still feeling PG but not official yet Not really sure when AF is due, I'm guessing any time from the 16th to the 21st? But I haven't gotten a BFP yet. I shouldn't really let that get me down because I didn't get one with my last pregnancy either, I ended up going in for a blood test when I was a few days late and still getting BFNs.

I think I'm here! AF is expected tomorrow but my temps are higher than ever today AND I got a little line on my HPT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm having a hard letting myself fully *go* and be crazy excited, but I know if there is a line it's a line, right!?!?!?!

We started ttc 2 years ago in June, started Metformin for PCOS in October and (not kidding here) this was my first month on Clomid and the first month we actually got to TTC for real!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm sitting here sick to my stomach with nerves and excitement- DH isn't awake yet. YIKES! EEEEKK!! ACKKKK!!!!!!!!

My LMP started on either the 15th or 18th (i forget which one) of last month. We had an "accident" on the 24th. I check on http://www.mymonthlycycles.com and it showed that I wasn't ovulating on that date. BUT, that is never a definite. It showed I started ovulating within a couple days so you never know. I think AF should have come yesterday. BUT, a couple months ago we had a little "scare" too and I just ended up being 3 days late getting AF. Soooooooooo, I dunno. I kind of feel AF coming on but then again, I kind of don't and a couple of times I have felt dizzy/light headed. If I am pg then my EDT would be 1/28. (3 days after my bday!) AHHHHHH!!

still no sign of AF yet.

Hi OOEY i know you from some other boards (babiesabove). I'm on the might/might not. If I am we aren't even in the suprised category. I was done!!! I have sold almost everything already. But, well...

My cycles have been fluctuating from 28 days to as long as 32 days. My last period was 23rd of April so I was expecting to ovulate between the 7th and 12th. We DTD on the 4th. But I gotta say my breasts are sore when I nurse, I'm eating everything in sight, and just "have that feeling". But another week and I should know for sure. If I am I should be due the 28th of Jan by LMP, or 24th by insemination, so we'll see.

I'll be back to update next week. I have a retreat this weekend.

Yey! got a BFP this morning. wanted to do something special to tell dh, but instead i just called him at work and blurted it out. im so impatient. im not planning on telling anyone else for a while, just less stressful, as well as the fact that we had a miscarriage last year. im hoping this one sticks. now im wondering what the chances are for another miscarriage. is having just one unusual? im also supposed to be going to an high school friends wedding this weekend. i was so looking forward to the open bar, but i guess i can cross that off my plans for the weekend. it is worth it though.

I believe that a lot of women have m/c but not nearly as many have multiple ones. Kind of like, you've had one and now you're not so high in the odds. I may be wrong but I believe this is what my midwife told me when I was pregnant with my oldest. Also, most women I've known in real life tend to have had just one. Very few have had more than one. Online the view tends to be a little skewed. But online is well... Online. I had a m/c with my first, have had two perfectly healthy boys after that. Many women I know who have had children have had one m/c. Only 1 has had multiple. The odds are just way less. Of course, that doesn't stop the worry, I know! Here's to a sticky baby for you

Hey Holly! I remember you, your the one with the adorable chunky thighed hard to fit DD

I'm right there with you, my cycles seem to fluxuate between 28-32 days due to BF'ing as well. I know that my LMP was the 19th or 20th though, and I know that I O'd on the 3rd (had ovulation cramping), and I'm getting from the online due date calculators that I should be due Jan 24th... which is strange if your LMP was before mine and your due date is later hmm... Anyway I hope you get to find out soon, I myself am DYING not knowing.

*UPDATE*

OMG the worst wave of nausea just hit me!!! I've been slightly nauseated on and off for the past week but this is like WOW OMG I might puke any second now (and it's just great to have a 1 year old jumping on my stomach )

I can't think of any other reason besides pregnancy that I should feel this way! I'm so excited I'm going to go buy some newborn diapers!!!!

post #40 of 47
