Posted by waitingonmymiracle » Jun. 11, 2012 9:49pm

I think I might be pregnant ....I'm probably not ....could be, I'm late and crampy ....or maybe I ovulated later than I thought ...My breast feels sore, I gotta be pregnant ...maybe it's sore from me poking at it to see if it's sore. LOL! Anyone else mentally wrestling yourself ?!

I know exactly what you mean. I keep thinking I have heartburn but maybe im imagining it. I think its an ulcer from worrying so much about it. Lol Its really amazing to watch all of the changes your body goes through in a month things you never noticed before. THe body really does mimk pregnancy after ovulation. Wew im just trying to hang in there as well, but I dont think Im pregnant again this month.....And i am disappointed but Im trying to deal.....Im right there wit ya tho gal.

Good afternoon ladies. Happy Birthday to me! Wish I had better news, but I tested this morning and still got a . I'm a bit aggravated but I know my cycles are still trying to regulate after going off the pill. I had an accidental preg then a mc last june and the hubby and I decided to give it a shot again but my sister became pregnant so we decided to wait. I went off the pill in Feb and 42 days later had my first AF then 35 days later on May 6th had my 2nd AF. So June 3rd came (if 28 d cycle)...no period and bfn. Thought I had another 35 d cycle but the 10th came and went, no period and today bfn. So either I am pregnant with low hcg levels or I'm having another 42 d cycle or I'm not ovulating at all. I'm to the point of praying for my AF so I know I'm still ovulating period. As far as symptoms go, still crampy, stomach feels iffy, and a hug from my husband feels like a freakin mammogram lol. But then again, I wonder if I'm imagining it lol. OH ladies, I wish I could have a drink .
Anyways,
ttc15months-kudos to you for the withstanding the symptom game for 2 years. Are you on Clomid (feels like everyone is on that stuff).
Readyready- sometimes I wonder if I have an ulcer too. I have burning cramping in my stomach if I dont have food in my belly.
to all of us!!

Yep, definitely feel like a crazy woman here. One moment I'm convinced I'm pregnant, the next I'm not, the next a maybe and on and on in an endless loop that drives me crazy. It doesn't help when my body decides to be delay and I'm left wondering is AF just screwing with my head or is there a reason it hasn't started yet. Grr... the madness just has to end. That is all there is to it.

Good Luck to everyone!

@ waitingonmymiracle - First off, Happy Birthday! Hope you have a great birthday. Second, do you know how many days post ovulation you are? It just may be too soon to test or you may be one of those lucky few that a hpt just doesn't work for. Maybe you can go in for a blood test to see what that says. Hope you get your bfp soon.

Hi Marielle1978! Welcome to the crazy people forum. You seem to fit in LOL. Just kidding . Are you playing the waiting game right now?
Since I'm still regulating, I'm not 100% sure when I O'd. The first time I O'd it took me 4wks and the 2nd time it took me 3wks. So it could be either or. If I O'd at 3wks then I'm 16dpo, if I O'd at 4wks then I'm.....hold on counting my fingers lol.....9dpo. So I guess I'll wait and test again on sunday the 17th if AF doesnt come. Yay, another week of crazyiness . I went to my parents' house today to thank them for 26 great years and while I was sitting on their couch I started cramping sharply. I had to ignore it cause my parents dont know we're trying. I feel it now too. Anyone find themselves walking around their house in only their undies cause they wonder if the cramping/pressure is the cause of tight pants? ROFL!!

If I'm on time, I should be starting AF today. It hasn't come yet although it feels like it will be here any moment now. Unfortunately, I wasn't OCD about checking for my exact ovulation day this time and so I could be expecting AF tomorrow. I ran out of HPTs on Saturday and have been trying not to go out and buy more until I'm sure AF is late. So yep, totally waiting and driving myself crazy on whether or not I could be or not.

I usually buy dollar store tests as well which makes it harder to resist going and buying more.

I couldnt resist either...I just bought two more! Lol. My hubby gave me a stainless steel camelbak bottle like his for my bday and I needed a bottle brush to clean it. So while I was at DollarTree I got a bottle brush, 2 more hpt and an ovulation test. Went out for sushi (all cooked) and came home and took the ovulation test for giggles (never took one). It picked up LH but not positive for surge. Does that mean that I'm capable of ovulation at some point, whether I may be building to it or on the downslope?

Oh....and when I popped open the test to look at the whole strip...I screamed and dropped the test. There was a dead bug inside the test stuck to the strip!

Oh how gross! I've never had that happen before. Eww!

Ovulation tests pick up LH in your urine. LH is in your system in various amounts throughout your cycle. I don't know if its presence means anything about your actual ability to ovulate. I'm pretty sure you can have the hormone without ovulating but maybe someone else knows.

I resisted going this afternoon but I think I may just give in tomorrow if I haven't started by then.

Time is passing so slowly and my body is driving me nuts. I swear all day I felt about ready to start and now all of sudden I don't feel it at all. I wonder if AF is just screwing with me? I have a feeling she's a complete b*tch who enjoys torturing her victims.

Are you like me and you keep going to the bathroom to see if you're bleeding?

Yep, I've checked about a dozen times today. Every time I think surely I've started, but no nothing yet. Probably means I'm going to start in the middle of the night and lose sleep because of it. Stupid body.

Do a retest. If it came up positive than more than likely it was positive. Whether or not the baby sticks around for the next 9 mos is still up in the air. If the next test comes up negative it could have been a chemical pregnancy but you won't know until you test. If you don't trust hpts than find a local doctor, clinic or lab and have them do the blood test.

Good Luck!

P.S. Still no AF although it still feels like she's about to start any minute now. grrr....

Oh my goodness I'm so glad I'm not the only one going crazy... I'm not a very patient person to begin with, so adding this whole 2WW is driving me bananas!

I'm 9DPO and I noticed a little spotting this morning, so now I've convinced myself that AF is on her way.... then I argue with myself that I've never spotted before... then I think that I'm nauseous (probably from the craziness), and then (like everyone above) I poke and prod my boobs until they are sore, and think well I have to be pregnant because my tots are so sore.

Grr... I just want to test, but I know if I test to early I'll get a BFN and be crushed. I used an OPK, so I know when I O'd, but I'm still going crazy thinking maybe we didn't baby dance enough or maybe I shouldn't have gone running...

Baby dust to all you ladies!!

The spotting could be implantation bleeding. If it was, and the egg stuck around you should be able to get a positive pregnancy test in 2-3 days after. And yes, the tww drives everyone crazy. I swear I was a sane person before ttc. Now I think I would qualify for the good drugs. Good Luck! and try not to stress too much about it. Otherwise you'll join the rest of us in insanity.

P.S. Still no AF... still driving me crazy. It still feels like any moment I'm going to start. This is starting to get ridiculous. If it's coming I just want it to get on with it. I'm loosing even more of my sanity as the minutes go by.

@sami1121---I am at 9DPO and am going nuts too!
We are TTC #1 and I am trying to wait & test on Father's Day, 'cause if I do get a BFP that would be a great surprise--I didn't tell my hubby when I could test this cycle.

Yesterday I had nausea and 2 days before I had it--so I will justify that maybe my progesterone levels increased those days & that's why I felt it. Then I will think, not sure if I'm preggo, even though I want to be--this back and forth thing sucks during TWW.

I have also been tired on/off. Been feeling weird twinges/pulls from what feels like my uterus.

The girls aren't really sore yet, but I did have my hubby look at them yesterday, because I noticed new veins, but he said they looked the same :P

I'm glad we can share in this craziness, it helps me feel less crazy knowing that others experience similar things. GL to all!

YAY! More people have joined the nut house!
@Dcholliday2- I've been feeling the tugs and pulls too. This morning I was having 'pings' of twinges/cramps in the center of my uterus. In the shower I think I'm see bulging veins in the girls but I realize it's just the hot water making them more pronounced. Ugh.
I think we all started going nuts as a side effect from baby fever. LOL.
@ Sami1121- I pray you just have implantation bleeding. I wish I never read anything on that subject though. lol. Whenever I see spotting (havent yet this cycle) I go crazy wondering if it's implantation or AF. Then I'm crushed to start my period. Keep us updated!
@#Rani#- As long as you read the hpt in the time frame, it shouldnt be an evap. OMG-I cant wait to find out when you test in 2 days!
My cramping/pressure is bugging me so much while sitting here that I'm waiting for AF to just...explode. The feeling is very low, about an inch above my pubic bone. Doesnt feel like normal AF cramps though. Also, I think I'm a gluton for punishment..I tested again this morning, eek!. I'm definitely going crazy now, I think I'm seeing the start of something. Ahhh, forget seeing spots...I'm seeing lines!!!!!!!!!
