Well I bought a box of FRER's tonight and used one, BFN. I don't know why I'm surprised, I'm only 8 DPO and on CD 23. But none the less this really really let me down.
I don't feel right. I'm mostly sure I'm pregnant, there's no reason I can think of that I shouldn't be.
My stomach is more sensitive than usual. I can't stuff myself like I like to without feeling a little upset tummy. I'm not as b*&^*y as I normally am a week before AF but I'm not all happy go lucky right now either. I'm more tired than normal. I seem to be a bit more "drooly." I've had some cramping every day since O that feels like mild period cramps and that certainly is not typical. My usual AF cramps are severe and start the day before AF comes visiting, not 2 weeks of cramps. I felt pains very very similar to O pains Sunday-Tuesday, even though according to CM I O'd precisely on time 8 days ago.
I'm just so frustrated! I want to know already!! I knew I shouldn't have bought those tests tonight.
Should I bother testing tomorrow? (Saturday) Or wait until Sunday or Monday?
I thought I might have a UTI because of the cramping so I went to the Dr yesterday. Even though it's early she drew blood and sent it off, but it won't be back until Monday. What was the point? I didn't have a UTI but she did say there was a trace amount of blood in my urine. So little she didn't think I needed to be treated for anything. Maybe implantation bleeding, such a tiny amount I didn't notice on my own?
Well anyway, I think I'm gonna git for now. Hope every one else's Friday night is a little less stressful!
I would def. wait a few more days. Even when I tested 14dpo and got a BFN the dr. told me to wait 4-5 days to test again so your hormone levels can raise enough. Otherwise you're pretty much wasting tests :\
I know it is easier said then done though..I hate having tests in the house cause then I am soo tempted to use them!!

I would say wait at least until Monday if not longer. I know if I had tested at 9 dpo I would've got a BFN since my BFP was soooo light at 10 dpo. Your symptoms sound promising though! Just remember too with your blood work it could've been too early. Keep us updated!

I'm so sorry you got a BFN hun It's definitely very early for testing though - there's every chance that it may take another day or two to implant, let alone get a BFP. Your symptoms are certainly promising though! I'll keep my fingers crossed you'll get your BFP the next time you test x
Thanks for all the well wishes. I almost POAS'd again this morning first thing but I held myself back. I knew it was too early, I don't know what I was thinking to try and test last night.
My mood isn't that great these past few days. Normally before AF comes I'm really PO'd all the time and fuming about something, but these past few days I've just had a short fuse. I'm mostly Ok until someone or something does something irritating then I yell. More impatient than angry I guess.
I seem to be losing my appetite. Last night I didn't need to eat before I went to bed and normally I have to eat a pretty big snack before I go to sleep. And this morning I only had a few bites of cereal for breakfast.
This would be my 6th pregnancy. You'd think by now I'd remember how it went with the first 5, but none of them have felt the same.
I'm trying my best to hold out until Monday, that will be 11 DPO and CD 26. Although, with my daughter, I had a negative blood quant at 10 DPO and a positive POAS at home at 12 DPO. SOOOO confusing.
Alright I'm rambling again.
Thanks again for the encouragement. It did cheer me up a bit.
Have a fab Saturday!
