I don't know if anyone is interested, but I thought I'd post my 'symptoms' (if that's what they are!!!) until I know for sure, one way or the other. Anybody else who's waiting with me, feel free to compare notes!

Today's 6-7 DPO. For a few days now I've been having twingy cramps. I kinda thought they might be my imagination until yesterday--they were pretty bad last night, like a heavy AF. I was also in the car with some friends on the way to a restaraunt, and had to go pee REALLY BAD halfway there. Then 30 minutes later, after dinner, had to go again. Then again about an hour later!

Today I noticed that my boobs have grown about a half a cup size. Yikes! I'm an A cup so it's really noticeable! There is a chance it could be normal AF type stuff, but it's really early--I'm not due for her until the 22nd!

Also, I have PMDD really bad, usually. This month, I actually don't feel that bad.

Been taking naps every day too, which is odd for me. I've been really sleepy. Could be the weather???

Oh another thing. I was at a wedding, and had a glass of champagne (figured it would be fine), and as I was sipping it, my mouth started watering like NUTS! It was so weird, and I was like "what's up with that?" until I remembered it could be a symptom....?

7 DPO: I have really bad cramps this morning, but I think it's gas. Actually, I'm starting to think that all these symptoms are in my head. My boobs feel normal today.

DH doesn't want to talk about it until we know for sure that it's a positive. I really don't blame him. We're first-timers, and we don't know what's a real symptom and what's not. I am not going to stop posting, though....

I can't imagine that we won't get pregnant this month though, unless there is some other issue. I am pretty sure I know what day I O'd, and we BD'd like a hundred times that week. LOL

I'm totally NOT having PMDD this month, so maybe that's a good sign...? (Knock on wood)

8 DPO: Well I feel silly starting this thread now, because I don't really think it will happen. I guess it will probably take longer than just one month, as most of you probably know....apologies for the beginner's enthusiasm!

Anyway, the PMS moods started kicking in yesterday. I still have the lower ab cramps, but that could be a lot of things, including cysts.

Please feel free to respond....anybody!

9 DPO. PMDD has a grip on me right now. I had a massive attack yesterday. Won't go into the details, but it wasn't cute. I won't take my Zoloft either, because of the TTC. Thank God for my husband/psychotherapist!! LOL

So unless that could double as a pregnancy symptom, I expect it's AF-related.

I wonder if I have low progesterone? I think I read somewhere that that could cause PMDD.

In other news: Everything else is the same. Cramps still. I just feel like not doing ANYTHING today. Alas...

10 DPO--First I gotta ask because I'm curious, is anyone reading this? I haven't gotten any responses...I hope I'm not being too annoying and self absorbed

Well not much to speak of yesterday. Just major, major PMS-moods, crying, and slight cramps.

I haven't cut back on my coffee at all. I hope that hasn't affected it sticking or something.

Keep looking for implantation bleeding, but nothing. I'm going to test on the 17th and then on the 22nd.

I'm reading it!!! I'm interested in seeing how it's going for you. At least I get a play by play from someone else so I'm not wondering what the heck is wrong with me or if anyone else gets what I get! Thanks!

11 DPO: Argh! I had heard that some people get positive responses at 7-11 DPO, so I went ahead and tested, even though my period isn't due till the 22nd. BFN, of course. I don't know what I was thinking.

*Possible* symptoms:

Some indigestion and an upset stomach yesterday morning--it felt like AF.

Crying a lot, feeling depressed (absolutely normal for me this time of the month.)

The cramping, right in one certain spot. It comes and goes, but I think to myself, "If I weren't TTC, would I notice it?" The answer is yes.

Getting hungry for breakfast, which is weird for me because I don't normally eat breakfast.

Also, as I was browsing the internet yesterday I found something (relating to one of my old jobs) that pissed me off and I started crying. I was thinking, "Oh I am not pregnant, I'll have a glass of wine to make me feel better." (Shame on me!) Well after one sip of the wine, my stomach started cramping like crazy! I poured it out.

Still, I'm not feeling terribly hopeful...

Hey, don't beat yourself up over this. I think most of us have tested early thinking that we *must* be one of the ones that could get an early result. In reality though, the stats show a *very* low percentage of people will actually get a BFP when pregnant and testing at 10 DPO. If it makes you feel better, back in May I tested from 12 DPO - 17 DPO, and didn't get a BFP until 17 DPO.

Anyway, I hope you get a BFP!

Thanks girls! Y'all make me feel better

12 DPO: Bad headache yesterday after going to the mall. Felt like a caffeine headache, but I only had my normal amount of caffeine (Two cups of coffee in the morning and a Coke for lunch). Doubtful it had anything to do with conception, but I don't get headaches often, so I thought I'd mention it.

Other than that, I felt a couple of quite distinguishable cramps while walking around. No boob issues, implantation bleeding, ms, or anything else that might possibly qualify.

In short, I don't feel pregnant at all.

AF due in 5 days....

I'm reading too!! I am rather enjoying your day-by-day run down since I am only a little behind you. I am due to start on the 26th. So far I am having these possible symptoms

More frequent headaches
Wake in the morning absolutely famished
Get a lot of dizzy feelings
naseus feeling esp. in the morning
Shortness of breath (was talked about in the TTC Board)
Twinges and some short sharp pains in my abdomen
Skin has been very itchy
boobs feel a bit fuller

I really hope this is the month... This is my fourth month trying and last month I had an early m/c.

I think you all have a good chance of getting BFPs! Good luck to you (and thanks for reading)

Even though I don't have that many symptoms and I don't think I'll get a BFP, I guess I'll keep posting just because I started this thread...LOL


13 DPO: Is being really, really lazy a sign? I don't think it's really fatigue, but I just want to sit on my arse and do nothing all day...but then at night I have energy. I think that's normal for me though!

Still got the twingy pains. But that's about it. I just wonder what that could be if it isn't pregnancy, because I don't ever remember having that before.

I remembered my dreams last night, which is a symptom, right? I don't usually remember my dreams. I dreamed I got AF!

If I don't get a BFP this month I'm gonna buy a 6-pack of Miller Lite and drink it all myself! Hee hee.

Good luck again to everybody!!!!


Edited to add this: I've also been having hot flashes (get really hot, sweaty, and DH says he's not hot), sweating more than usual, and being really hot all night. That's kinda weird.

14 DPO: Well, we have an interesting development. I'm seeing some spotting. It's only the slightest bit of pink on the toilet paper, and I do not believe it's AF.

Gotta make this quick cause DH is still in bed (has the day off). Everything else is the same.

DH tells me: "wait until Christmas to unwrap your present!" No way, I'm way too excited!

Crossing my fingers for me and all of us!!!!
