Ok- so I am totally impatient. I think I o'd on 4/27, so I am really only about 7 dpo. It is only our first month TTC so I know that the odds of becoming pregnant are not in our favor but for the past few days I have had mild cramps (like I do when I get my period) even though my period is due in a week, I dont normally have PMS symptoms until the day I get it, so having cramps now is a bit strange. Along with the cramps I have been eating a ton and strangely enough am very congested. Not sure if any of these are symptoms or not or if a i am just hoping they are. Any thoughts? PS like an idiot, I took a test this am of course BFN!! Thanks

Melissa- Yup probably too early to test and get a BFP but the cramping is good, and a long with the congestion but I wouldn't look too much into the eating more thing, it could just be psychological whether you mean to do it or not, sometime I find during my 2ww that I eat a little more, but then I catch myself. If that makes sense? But it sounds good so far!! good luck!!

We all feel your pain with the wait! The hardest part is not knowing.
Be careful how much you eat! A few months ago I thought I was PG so I started eating constantly. Turns out I was just really hungry. And naturally, as soon as I realized I was not PG, I was quite unhappy about the amount of food I had consumed!
Eating is okay, but eating 2 boxes of thin mint girl scout cookies covered in peanut butter in one sitting is not okay, even if you are PG!
Good luck on a BFP!

The first month we started trying, I thought I was pg b/c i had cramping, bloating, sore bb's. But my DR. said it was Oing pains. so now at least I know what it feels like when I O. B/c that's how I feel today. & yesterday.

I didn't know congestion was increased with pg. Of couse my nose is always congested. Right now my nose is congested & ears fill fluid filled. YUCK>>

Good luck on your journey hope it's a short one. IN A GOOD WAY.

So I tested today, think I am about 11dpo. I used the Clear Blue Easy Early Results, which came back BFN. Am I wrong to feel totally discouraged, or is it possible that I still could be preg. and it didnt detect it. Its strange because sometimes I totally feel like I am preg due to the mild cramping, slight nausea, newly visible veins all over my body-my bb's seem fuller but arent sore...ughh. sorry just had to vent, this waiting is an emotional rollercoaster!

It's good to vent! And we are all here so that you can vent to us! I know the feeling because last month I had all the symptoms and we both really thought I was pregnant but I ended up getting a PFN I don't understand what all the nausia, sore bb's, fatigue, and extra eating was about, the only thing me and Tre can think is that it was psychological. This month I haven't had any symptoms tho so we'll see. But good luck to you and keep venting it keeps us sane!
