Hi AstroMom! I'm so excited that there is a March board now, even though I can't actually try to be a member for at least another week, at least I can come here and pretend!
Congratulations on your BFP!
I don't have any signs yet, but it's way to early to tell. My breasts were a little sore this morning, but that's to be expected anyway. They're usually pretty tender before AF.
Last month, I was just sure I was pregnant and my breasts were huge monsters and so so so tender. I could barely keep my hands off them! I think my husband wondered what the heck was wrong with me when every time he looked at me I was groping myself!
Hoping for a pisces!:

I wonder if your BH-like contractions were anything like my crampiness I have going on. That's what I would describe it as too -- definitely a contracting feeling. The thing is, I've read that it can just be normal stretching, but why would a stretching uterus feel like a contracting uterus? It's a bit disconcerting. I just never felt this in any of the other pregnancies. Oh well... the two that ended in m/c started with spotting, not cramping, so I'm trying to just accept it as normal even though the worry creeps in occasionally.
Yes, Astro, I do plan on testing in 6 days. Next Thursday. If I can hold out that long!
My breasts have gotten huge over night. I woke up this morning from sleeping on my back and as soon as I sat up and gravity kicked in, they felt huge and heavy. Let the groping begin.........
I'm normally like a 36B, so I really love the way they look when they swell. I just wish it didn't hurt! By the time they shrink again, it can be such a relief.
CarolynnMarilynn, I hope you'll be able to join us too! I have no thoughts about what the burning pain could be, but it sounds very painful.
The physical signs I had were having to pee more often, pimples, vivid dreams, hungry in the middle of the night. I know that when I started to get in my head, "oh, maybe I'm not pregnant, is that a line? Another BFN!" it sucked. When I just listened to my body I knew that I was pregnant. My body always knows.
I too had very vivid dreams starting 8 DPO or so, about BFPs and slinging a newborn. I knew I was pregnant. I just had to wait for the BFP to show up. And show up it did! I have no real pregnancy symptoms, just I'm very hungry constantly and I am taking naps with my DD every day.
CPST & mom
well baby woke up, maybe i will be back
Courtney and Cree, baby made 3, added one more then there were 4, sakes alive, then we had 5, another in the mix now we have 6!

No symptoms at all here; this will be my third and I know I never feel anything until at least 6 weeks. With both DD and DS, my first symptom was always a massive craving for dairy products, and mild nausea whenever I went a half hour without food. So I'm figuring it'll be the same this time.
Plus, I had two dreams about a girl a couple of weeks ago.
I also just realized that since I O'ed I've been losing my hair -- that always happens in my 1st and "4th" trimester. I should have known the day after we dtd, lol.
And bloated--I can't believe how full my belly is. How strange, this whole journey!
and the smell in my house is Killing me! right now!
(and I might be a bit cranky)
This gets better right?
I've been peeing more, but that means every 2 hours with one getting up at night, instead of every 4-6, with an 8 hour break at night. I can't imagine needing to pee even more (Well, I won't have to imagine it - just gotta wait 7 months or so!)
So you found a good bra?
Re, umm, bowels (is this tmi?), that is weird too! I posted a question re; constipation on the midwife list, learned some good things there. Beginning to suspect it is my vitamin. Can't win for loosing right now. And dh is going crazy trying to feed me something I like after 2 bites. What a guy!
It is amazing that I could live in this body for 34 years and now have everything change so quickly.
had a positive test. reason for taking the test. it hurst when either dd bumped into it. i feel bloated and hungry all the time. and heart burn but I can get heart burn due to allergies (which I have right now)
I was very tired with last dd and moderately naseous.
at least from what i can remember
Dh, Me , DD 10 , DD 7 , DD 4
We , , , , not in that order
