I'm new to these boards. I'm a 31 year old momma to 4 kids between the ages of 11 and 2. My husband and I are NOT actively trying for a fifth. Anyways, my periods are very regular, like I know down to the hour when AF should arrive. We have been practicing the withdraw method (can't do BC because it gives me really bad migranes), quite frankly probably not perfectly. Anyways I am very sure I ovulated last Wednesday. We did the deed Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. Sunday and Monday he did pull out, but finished just outside the lips (sorry if TMI). Wednesday he didn't pull out at all. Thursday he pulled out completely.
Since Friday I have had dull back pain and mild cramping. Wednesday (7 DPO) I started feeling nauseous particularly after eating as well as having a few dizzy spells.Yesterday (8 DPO) woke up with very sore full breasts. Also having a super sense of smell (opening the package of ground beef about made me gag and no, it wasn't expired). Another weird thing is I have only been able to sleep on my left side for the past couple days (weird because I am very much a right side sleeper and actually laying on my left side used to cause me pain).
Today (9 DPO) still with mild nausea, sore breast, and heightened sense of smell. I am fairly exhausted, but this happens often with 4 kids anyways.
Every part off of me thinks that Wednesday I will be buying a test and not a pack of tampons. Another part of me thinks that I am just stressing myself out because he finished inside on day of ovulation.
Would be completely ecstatic if I am pregnant, just wasn't planning for it. Just want this week over so i know one way or another.
Anyone also waiting on Wednesday or have opinions on these symptoms?
How reliable are the first signal tests from Wal-Mart?I took one at 12am this morning. Within a minute there were 2 lines (very faint positive), but I've seen several places saying they are known for false positives. I will not test again until Wednesday morning, but thinking i should trust what I saw this morning.
