A little backstory. I joined this board when my DH and I started to TTC in Nov. I was lucky enough to find out I was pregnant a few days after the new year, but only to MC about a week later. Took two months off per Dr's request, started getting normal periods immediately, and have now been trying since mid March. This is TTC #2 since M/C.
I SWORE I wasn't going to symptom spot this month and I am truly trying not to build myself up for probable disappointment, but I thought I'd run it by you ladies, is roughly 14 DPO too soon for symptoms?
My AF is due tomorrow and the past week I've had sore boobs on and off on the side of my boobs (like they hurt to lie down on, to touch, etc). Not intense but on and off.
The weirdest thing has been the on and off lower cramping and the stomach issues, one day I am completely backed up and burping non stop (gassy-TMI I know sorry) and the next I have loose stools (once again total TMI I know). I haven't been eating any differently though.
What got me to post today is that I've been feeling bouts of nausea on and off all day. And I know these are probably all in my head and I'm trying so hard not be a crazy about this, but does anyone have any thoughts about these kinds of symptoms at roughly 14 DPO?
Note: I tested at around 10 DPO with a FRER and it was negative :/
I'm really so scared to test. There's something about seeing that stark white nex to that test line that is beyond devestating. All I have to go off of is the first time I got pregnant and that didn't end well :/
I figure that my period is due tomorrow, if I've waited for 2 weeks, even if it kills me I can wait another day and test first thing in the morning. I'm just hoping for good news this time! I really don't want to be a symptom spotter, but I'm honestly not trying to make up symptoms it's just what is happening! They also just started like three days ago so maybe it could be a sign of pregnancy...but then again it could just be my AF preparing for arrival.
What a cruel trick that period and pregnancy symptoms are so similiar!
Thanks for the support though and I will test tomorrow (hopefully I won't break down and test tonight!)
I'm usually very regular with my bowel movements (I know seriously TMI) but this on and off constipation and burping and stuff is insane. I swear though, with my cramps this am I put a tampon in my purse because I was convinced my period was on its way but it was a no show (granted I am due for it tomorrow).
I'd be lying if I said I didn't go out and buy some tests after work just in case. Really don't want to get my hopes up, but might potentially test tonight! This whole BFN at roughly DPO 10 is concerning me. Fingers crossed if not this time I get my BFP soon and have a bean that sticks for once! I just want to put this M/C behind me but it's so painful.
I was thinking it might be but than that silly "Can You See a Line" is making me doubt myself because 14% have voted "no" (I know that is a stupid reason to make any sort of judgement) but idk. I want to feel cautiously excited but I sort of feel in shock more than anything else.
haha LilyBees that is really sweet of you to say. I know I'm being a little whiny about this (I blame the hormones, I've been near tears over the weirdest things today) but I really just want this to end in a baby! Boy or girl who cares!
