I'm still not exactly sure when I Oed, but I think I'm somewhere 5-7dpo. Since last night, my appetite has jumped up! I keep thinking it's far too early for such a sign to show itself if it's a pregnancy symptom. But when hubbie woke up at 4:30, my stomach made itself known, and usually I just use the bathroom and go back to bed without feeling that hungry. Dinner the night before was a bowl of spaghetti (wheat noodles), half a bowl of buttered noodles, 1/2 cup of cauliflower, 1 slice of texas toast, and a mini red velvet cupcake. Then I had 2 chocolate covered strawberries around 9pm. How could I be so ravenous at 4:30am!?
Today I have had a bowl of cereal with a little banana, a bowl of spaghetti, 1 slice of texas toast (and I didn't eat breakfast until 9:30), and I am starving again! Guess I should raid the fridge before my stomach rebels.
Could this be an early sign? I seriously don't remember any from when I was pregnant with my daughter, and I don't think this is a usual PMS symptom, at least not this extreme.
All I know is that was a cue to me that something was going on, I was like 6wks preggo with DS before I realized it. I had gone to taco bell and in about an hour or so ate: mexican pizza, nachos supreme, 3 crunchy tacos, and cheesy potatoes all by myself.
Hunger shouldn't be an aspect until many weeks in ... although everyone is different. Increased appetite coming from cravings can come from PMS symptoms as well .... I'm going through the 5 - 7 dpo terrible time as well and keep experiencing the question of PMS or PREG?!?! It's terrible. Give it some time, keep posted here and talking to other ladies in the same boat. Wait to test as long as you can (I should tell myself the same advice) ......
I definitely will be waiting to test. I'm an odd duck among most on the boards - I HATE POAS (I have horrible aim!). Back in November when I thought I may be PG due to extreme breast pain (way more than usual), I tested the day before AF (BFN, then AF came the next day, of course). With my daughter, I waited to test the day before AF as well and got a BFP - and we were NTNP for several months, but that was the first month I felt the need to test (according to my notes, I felt "different", which so doesn't help me right now - lol).
So, I will not test too early! But my mind may play tricks on me, that I'm sure of. I hope to wait until the 23rd or 24th to test (1-2 days after AF is supposed to show), but if I don't feel the normal pre-AF stuff day before, I may break down then. But I don't have a fortune to spend in FRERs!
