<p>Alright so my boobs have been pretty sore over the last week, this morning I woke up and they don't really feel tender at all. That was about the only symptom I had. I did have some cramping from when I think I implanted for about 4 or 5 days and then that stopped as well. And I have also been charting still, I was going to continue until 18 dpo and my temp dropped some this morning. I took another dollar store test this morning and my line isn't much darker from the other day. It is dark and obviously there but only about half as dark as the control line. Should it be darker than this? Do you ladies think this means anything or should I be fine? I am just super worried! I need to stop stressing about everything but I just want this so bad and I am worried none of this is a good sign...</p>

<p>I am in the same boat as you, I was more naus in week 4 and 5, week 6 I don't really feel pregnant other than tired.  Its really hard, to have faith in it, but if you are not bleeding and cramping in the front, you are pregnant today.  I try to remember something my son's specialist said to me, worry and the chemicals released by it can be more damaging than intentionally doing non pregnancy safe things. So try to be happy today and understand nothing is guaranteed as a part of this process.   </p>

<p>Thank you very much for your response! It made me feel better. I am going to stop temping, testing, and anything else that drives me crazy! My breasts are feeling slightly tender again, I just need to not stress about anything anymore. I am only 5 weeks so things will probably pick up and then I will be wishing I wasn't having symptoms <span><img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif"> I feel like things are going to be ok!</span></p>

<p>I remember with my first pregnancy at about 14 weeks I lost all pregnancy symptoms:  nausea, tenderness, fatigue, etc.  I was so freaked out I called the doctor (who reassured me). </p>

<p>Your body will wax and wane as far as how "pregnant" you feel, and it is important to just kind of go with the flow.  Unless the doc tells you otherwise, it is always safest to assume everything is fine--save yourself from the worry if there is no grounds for it, you know? </p>

<p>Incidently, my pregnancy was completely normal and healthy, and a couple of days later I started to feel baby move around!</p>

<p>Hang in there, mama!</p>
