It's me again. I couldn't wait till tomorrow to post this (I'm covering for a girl at work so I work all night by myself) I am having some symptoms and I had a question about them because I'm trying really hard not to get my hopes up. OKay so here they are: VERY bloated and I have alot of gas (both ends), fatigue, some sharp pain about an inch beneath my belly button, and I'm constantly craving popcorn and ice cream. I don't have breast tenderness or feel sick to my stomach tho. I asked my mom what she thinks and she said "well if your breast don't hurt do they feel heavy?" I told her I wear a D cup so of course they feel heavy! But I was wondering is it to early to feel these things? I ovulated on the 14th, we did the "deed" on the 12th, 14th, and 16th. (I heard to skip days because it builds up the sperm) and we did the whole pillow under the butt thing. But this means AF isn't due till the 28th. Any thoughts?

It's hard to say at this point. I know it's hard, but you'll just have to wait till AF time gets closer to test. Your mind really starts to play tricks with you when you want to be PG. It is evil. Here's hoping to a BFP though!

I have been TTCing #1 for 4 cycles now and my best advice is to ignore any "symptoms". The problem is AF and Pregnancy symptoms can be very similar and when you are TTCing every twinge, feeling and craving get amplified and you get your hopes way up only to see them come crashing down when the witch shows. I know my first couple of cycles I thought we had did it, only to see AF. Soon I began to really think about feelings I had before I tried and had to admit I felt them, but I had just ignored them.

This is not to say of course that what your feeling is false - they may very well be signs, but don't hang all your hopes on them. I hope they are for you and you get a BFP soon.

I agree,, try to ignore symptoms,, as hard as it may be. Also, just to give you some advice, since you only get one shot a month you should open your window a little more. Sperm can live for up to 5 days inside of you, so its best to start bding around the 10th everyday or every other day, whichever you prefer, I don't think there is actually any proof that you need to take a day off inbetween unless your BF has been checked and he is aware of having a low sperm count. Best of luck this month.

I agree with the other gals. Last month I had the blue vaines road maping my chest, even my neck. I was hugely bloated, actually didn't fit in my pants, or my bras. But AF still came.. and I unbloated, and fit in my bras and pants again.
This time Im going to ignor everything and just wait for AF to show up. If shes late, then I'll test.
Good Luck! Hopefully your symptoms are BFP!!
