So, I'm starting "week 2" of my first two week wait ever. My LP is normally only about 11 days, so I'm expecting AF on Friday. If she doesn't show, then I'll test Friday morning.

I've been keeping track of my symptoms, b/c charting is just what I do, lol...
-Creamy CM (just found out that was a symptom today - I've never paid attention to this)
-No appetite pretty much all of last week
-Major breakout
-Lack of energy
-Sore BBs
-Extra hungry and craving junk food

Most of the symptoms are normal AF issues or are probably due to the stress of DH leaving for a month (He left Thursday and is gone until the end of July ) The ONLY thing that sticks out is how hungry I've been. I JUST ate a big junk fast food meal at 11:30 and I was full, now I'm hungry again and it's only an hour later...I normally eat a lot but not like this, especially not when it's this HOT outside!

I hope Friday gets here quickly!!

That all sounds promising. Your CM should continue rather than "dry up" or get watery... at least that was my experience. Keep us up to date with your symptoms and I am sure Friday will be here before you know it.

Craving junk food was a big symptom of mine when I was pregnant with DS. Normally I am a healthy eater but the first 8-10 weeks of pregnancy all I wanted were chicken nuggets, french fries, and eggs noodles with butter and parm. Everything else made me nauseous (although nausea didn't really kick in after I got my BFP). I had to force feed myself veggies and salad everyday.

I hope you get your BFP in a few days! I suffered from exhaustion before I knew I was pregnant. That was probably my most noticeable symptom. It sounds promising!

Thanks I'm pretty sure I'm not pregnant, and that most of the symptoms are stress/AF related, but we'll see. I haven't been sleeping well since DH left, so that could have a lot to do with me being so tired. Trying to explain these symptoms away, so I don't get my hopes up, just in case

Thanks, it does seem like Friday is a taking it's time getting here!

Here's my morning confession...I tested last night...BFN, but rationalized that I just HAD to do it b/c I'm getting a filling repaired at the dentist today, and I needed to know if I had any extra care instructions to give them, it was the responsible thing to do after all

Quite responsible! I'm sorry it was a bfn, but I'm sure you know it is still very early, especially to get a bfp without fmu.

Thanks for the support ladies I am counting down the hours and trying not to post a million times in this thread about every little symptom. I'll be testing right before I go to work in the morning, so I'll update soon after I'll admit, I've been a testing freak the last few days, all BFNs obviously, since I'm not dancing around the living room yet! Today I did realize that technically AF isn't due until Sat. I don't know why I've been thinking Friday, Friday all along, but since Friday is the 11th day of my 11 day LP, AF should be due the next day. Maybe my mix up was early pregnancy brain? Either way, my fingers are crossed for tomorrow. I'm getting a little more excited since my BBs have never felt like this and for the last two days I've been so tired that I had to take a 2 hour nap when I got home from work. I hardly ever nap. No nausea yet though. I really hope these symptoms aren't just stress related!! I'm trying to be cautious and guarded about all of this, but I'm so ready to be EXCITED!!!

Here's a funny story, I don't know why, but I'm a little weird about buying pregnancy tests which is why DH and I bought 6 tests together before he left....well due to the POAS marathon I've been on this week, I have only one left and am saving it for the morning. Tried to buy more this evening, but kept running into people I knew at two different stores....small towns, ugh!..I was worried I would run into someone else, so I just left the stores empty handed, lol....Hopefully I can get more tomorrow b/c BFN or BFP, I'm going to needs some more sticks to pee on over the weekend!!

I don't mind you posting all of your symptoms. I like to hear that stuff and I FULLY intend on doing that in a few weeks when I am in your position.

I got my BFP with DS at 10DPO. It wasn't FMU but I am pretty sure I held my pee for almost 5 hours. I wish you good luck this morning. Even if your cycle isn't over until tomorrow you should be able to get a BFP... and if you don't you aren't out yet!

Also, I totally understand not wanting to buy pregnancy tests. I am the same way. I live in a small town AND I am a teacher in that town. I am always afraid of running into a student. I thought I might be pregnant a few months ago. I went to buy a test and ended up talking to a women in the checkout line (she was commenting on how precious DS is), come to find out she is a parent of one of student's at the high school... not one of my students though. A week later I had two students ask me if I was pregnant. I was like "Do I LOOK pregnant?" and they were like "No but Breckin isn't a baby anymore and we thought it was time for a second".... I'm not sure if they were asking because they really thought that or because they heard I was buying a test at the Food Lion.

Well it was a BFN...a BFN in the my bedroom light, the sunlight, and under a magnifying glass...haha. I'm still holding out hope for the weekend though. My symptoms don't seem to be disappearing and I have a new one! My stomach is feeling sore like I did sit ups or something. Still no nausea...and still no AF or AF type cramping I have one other gross symptom that's been going on for a few days and could be contributing to the stomach soreness. It's not throwing up but...the other end, TMI...sorry. The only reason I mention it, is b/c when I had a positive test a few years ago I had the same gross symptom (we think chemical pregnancy, but no HCG ever showed in the bloodwork) I want to say I got my digital BFP at around CD42 that time, but that was the first time I tested. No pee stick will be safe after I get off work!

Crystal...I'm glad I'm not the only one who has issues buying tests. Gotta love how fast people talk and things get around. Good luck to you this month!! Crossing my fingers that we'll be in the same DDC!

Aw too bad. But like I said, you aren't out yet. Some people don't get BFPs until after their period is due.

If I get pregnant our first time trying I will be due between April 1-3 but I will more then likely lurk in the March DDC as well. They had to induce me early with DS for a laundry list of reasons. One was because of his size but they had no idea how big he was until I started pushing. He was huge, I am small and I hemorrhaged ... it was scary. Anyways, my OBGYN thinks it could be dangerous for me to go into labor on my own because my labor was so insanely fast and I had complications, so she will likely induce me a little early.

Yikes, that does sound scary. I'm glad it worked out and you were able to have a healthy baby! I hope it goes better for you the second time around. Did you end up delivering or did they have to do a C-section? It would be kind of cool if you were due on April Fools Day this time around! I've been nervous about labor and delivery complications myself, b/c I'm small also. A friend of mine had to get an emergency C-section b/c her baby's head couldn't get passed her small pubic bone, eek. My brother and I were about 6.5 lbs each and DH was around 5 lbs (but he's a twin) so hopefully my baby will be on the small to normal side, just as long as he/she is healthy

I'm not giving up yet on a BFP, b/c in all honesty I'm not sure when I Oed this month, so my dpo could be totally off.

Yep. It's not over until AF shows her face!

I delivered vaginally. Everyone, even the nurses and doctors, were amazed that he came out of me. I may be little but I have wider set hips. I only gained weight in my belly so I looked like I was going to topple over. I was HUGE. People would joke that I was carrying twins... little advice... never joke that someone looks like they are carrying twins..lol. He was almost 10 pounds and 22 inches long. He is still big. 100 percentile for everything. At his daycare his nickname is the gentle giant.

Oh wow!! He was huge! And you did it all vaginally, that IS pretty amazing! I bet he was cute though. I love big chubby babies, with their little fat rolls So cute

Going crazy here!! Here comes the crazy post! I've been over analyzing all morning. I keep thinking of all the possible situations that could have happened this cycle and keep coming back to my unusually sore BBs. All other symptoms aside, this one is the most exciting! This makes the 5th day I have woken up with it.

1. At first I thought, maybe it's just a sign AF is on her way, but I don't think I've ever had them sore this many days before AF. It's usually maybe a day or two, three at the max.

2. Then I thought, maybe I am actually Oing way late b/c of all the stress from last week, but my BBs wouldn't have this many days of soreness before Oing normally. It seems awfully late for a delayed O anyway. All my stress was gone by a week ago, so I think I would have Oed over the weekend or beginning of the week if it was delayed.

3. Then I think, maybe I didn't O at all, but that still doesn't explain the sore BBs.

4. I haven't been working out or doing anything that would make my muscles sore.

5!!! The only conclusion I can think of that is left is: Pregnant!....So grow baby grow, produce that hormone so it'll show up on a test, I'll know for sure you're in there, and I can tell your daddy

PS...I'm sure I'll look back and laugh (and be kinda sad) at this post if AF does show up after this, but I'm tired of keeping my heart cautious, I'm ready to be excited!!
