High cervix and lots of CM is a sign of ovulation. Just a second....
This might help? It looks like it might be right for pregnancy.

Since you've been looking at your nipples pretty regularly you'll probably be able to tell the aerola difference more quickly.

If you don't want to test to confirm, then wait a couple more weeks and if your AF hasn't shown up then you probably are pregnant. OK that sounds snarky... but if you don't test and aren't temping, then just waiting is the only other sure sign. You can second guess pregnancy symptoms all you want... Its normal to not be dry when you are pregnant, yes. If you are super stressed lately, you could have just had a delayed ovulation. Nothing that time (or a pregnancy test) won't straighten out for you sooner or later.

there is just something comforting about knowing someone else is also waiting to find out.

So you didn't test?! Wow. I guess I didn't test with my first- I found out in the ER, though, due to horrible stomach pain, and THEY tested. But I didn't want to know if I was, so I didn't test or tell my dh.

Congrats! That's so cool. I am done having kids, and knew that my youngest would be my last so I tried to live up every moment, as well- especially the last month.

Thanks for the congrats. I think I'll have dh pull out the baby clothes I have put away. I know it's early but I am excited.
Oh I figured I was pregnant, but since it was my first pregnancy, and I was told I'd need IVF to get pregnant (and couldn't afford), I just resisted testing. The night I went into the ER, I'd been working at a pizza place and it was about 8 p.m., VERY VERY busy, and I finally just asked could I go home because I was in pain. Dh was out at his job without a phone. I got dropped home by another pizza worker and sat down and looked up "What To Expect..." 's first chapter about symptoms. I had them all! So the nurse on the phone said to come in once I said "stomach ache" and "last period six weeks ago" in the same breath. I turned out to be 5 weeks along. (They suspect ectopic.)

Have fun with the baby stuff. I loved setting up the nursery with my first- all the shower stuff!! And with my second, we did cloth and so we had all these wonderful, wrinkly, fluffy newborn flat diapers to wash and line up.

yeah, they were dollar store tests, so wasn't so sure about them. also, didn't know if nursing would affect the hormone levels. am still wondering what is going on since i haven't gotten af yet. :

I think the thing is that when you get a negative you don't know if it's really a negative or if you are just testing too early, especially if you are not 100% positive of your O date.

how are you feeling superkitty? with my last pregnancy i highly suspected i was pregnant before the test. thinking back on it, the signs would be pretty obvious to me now. one reason why i thought i was pregnant this time was nausea, but i think it was just a stomach bug. it lasted FOREVER though. anyway, still no af. wondering if i should see my gyn, but i pretty much avoid doctors as much as possible. i wonder if a naturopath would know anything about leveling out hormones, etc.
