waiting is sooo hard

Category: Two Week Wait - Pregnancy Tests
Posted by cjpalaska » Dec. 31, 2010 9:27pm

I have been trying with ovulation tests for two months unsucessfully... but for the first time (I ovulated on the 23rd) I have very sore breasts and nipples and feel full and heavy. I have also been having PMS cramp symptoms but my period wouldn't be due until next week toward the end of the week. I maybe just reading into it. Of course I couldn't wait and tested this morning with a negative result, but it is too soon. I am going to retest on Sun.... I hate waiting!

Baby dust too you. Hope this is your month. I definitely know how hard it is during the tww. I'm 13 dpo and I've taken too many tests to count. I'm going in January 3rd for a blood test. We will see.

Good luck to you as well... as my sister told me; it will happen when your body is ready... of course my mind is ready now!

@ cjpalaska

Hi! I also ovulated on the 23rd and am having the cramping and sore nipples. I've also had headaches for like the past 3 days! I've bought enough tests to last me all week and will start testing monday morning. Waiting blows but I hope our patience will reward us both greatly! Good luck!

thanks, I thought about buying more tests; but I thought I was being obsessive! I am glad to know that you are doing that also; it makes me feel less crazy. I also feel a little naseau today... and more tired. it could all be in my head I guess, but I don't feel well today. Still have the sore nipples and backache and a little headache. Although it is weird we both have similar symptoms....:) Could be a good sign for us both!

So I went out and bought five pregnancy tests... to last me through Wed. when I am suppose to get my next period. I took one when I got home because I couldn't resist; of course it was negative so I am going to take one tommorrow morning because it is suppose to be highest in the morning..... then I will just concede to take one each morning until Wed. If it isn't positive by then - then it will be a no go for this month. I am afraid I am getting myself to hopeful and I will be very disappointed if I really am not this time around. Good Luck to you tommorrow also:)

af is not due for me until the 8th cause my cycle is slightly longer.. but i will start testing anyway. ;) i went out and bought a few of the first response tests cause supposedly you can get results 5 day prior to the date of af which for me would technically be monday but i'm starting tomorrow anyway. i can't control myself! the last to months i didn't even bother testing. i just waited for af and sure enough she showed up right on schedule. but, i also didn't feel any symptoms either. this month i've been feeling all kinds of crazy and so begins the testing!

so I tested this morning and it was negative:( Not even faintly positive... but according to the pregnancy test predictor on this site it says 40% of women still get a negative result today so I guess all hope isn't lost... but I am definately preparing myself for what might not be this month. I am still going to test tommorrow again. I hope your result is more positive..hahaha

unfortunately my results were the exact same. but i'll also test tomorrow. i swear i kept thinking i saw a second line but sadly there was nothing. i keep trying to be positive and prepare myself as well but i know i'll still be crushed if af shows her face. maybe its just the slew of coworkers and friends who are turning up pregnant. don't you hate that? you're trying your hardest and everyone else is like " we weren't trying but we weren't NOT trying"!?!? and i'm just like "really?" sorry just had to vent for a second. better luck to us both tomorrow!

I know.... I am glad we can talk... I only have one sister and she got pregnant 13 years ago unplanned. All of my friends have already had children. I am a little older and now that I am ready and willing, it is harder than I thought it was going to be. I stopped birth control a year ago and I thought it would just happen. Now that I have actually been trying... it is frustrating. I have been telling myself that if I am preg. then I will still be in a few days and if I am not then I will still not be in a few days... so I should just go about my regular day like I would any day, but the truth is I do want this more than I originally thought. Well, deep breaths and calm thoughts and we will both get through this day and the next regardless..... keep me posted about tommorrow for you!

Couldn't sleep all night and woke up to a BFN! Trying not to lose hope but trying not to expect a positive. Hopefully you have better luck than I did today!

Still negative for me today.... I am not sure what to think because last night I was somewhat naseauted from food and I went to bed an hour early because I was so tired. Maybe it is just a normal bug and I am reading into it. Oh well I guess I will test again on Wed. when my cycle is suppose to start but I am not putting much hope into it. I hope your news is more promising!!

So it's tuesday and still nothing... BFN! Trying not to freak out cause I thought that this was really gonna be my month.. Starting to think I was just imagining symptoms. Even though I did nothing of the sort for the past 2 months. Well I still have 4 tests left and AF isn't due until saturday so we'll see how it goes. Better luck and baby dust to you! If it's not my month I @ least hope it's yours!

I am there with you.... I was holding out for a faint positive today; but I got a BFN:( I did have some pinkish fluid yesterday and read you can get implantation up to 12 days dpo; and I am at 12 today. So I could have implanted late and it will take even longer for the preg. test to show a positive.... I have conceded that the only way I will know for sure is if I get my period tommorrow or Thurs. Then I will know for sure... I am always on time within one or two days so if it is late then that will be my positive so to speak.... but I still think I will get it:( Well hang in there and don't drive yourself crazy at least like I have been doing. Yesterday I wanted to cry all day! Now however, I know I have to wait another almost two weeks before I ovulate again....Ugh Keep me posted!

Omg. And to top things off there has been a pregnancy announcement @ work! I don't want to be upset about it because the girl is actually a good friend of mine and I should be rational about it.. I already knew she was pregnant but now the whole office knows and that's all they keep talking about! Its driving me batty. Its not like she set out to steal my "pregnancy thunder".. Thank goodness you're here for me to vent to. I really am happy for my friend. I'm just having a pity party for myself. =(

this morning I turned on the tv and the first thing on was Regis and Kelly and they were reading pregnancy facts.... Are you Kidding? Then my hubby on the phone with his sister (who meant well)- I heard her say over the phone "any news yet?" "I know you are trying..." Talk about frustrating and pressure! I was already in a weepy mood and then that.... No AF yet but I am sure she is on her way this month and I guess I will have to double my efforts so to speak:)

I am officially out this month as AF showed up on schedule today! At least it is on schedule; I can look at it positively that way. So, I will now be waiting the long 10 days to ovulation......

Well still a BFN for me. AF has not reared her ugly head but I fear that she's just around the corner. I'm starting to think that maybe it isn't my month either. =( well I guess I'll keep you updated until she shows up but I do have little hope.. Better luck to us all next month.

So I think I'm just gonna wait for AF and see what happens.. This testing is driving me nuts. The Witch hasn't shown but I can feel her presence.. The last few days have been so stressful. I swear that if I am not pregnant I'm gonna have a few glasses of wine this weekend. Maybe a few bottles. Lol. Hope the hear that it wasn't AF and just late implantation bleeding for you!

testing is driving me crazy also!!! I tested today and I still got BFN. I still haven't gotten my AF; just spotting once a day. I thought again today I would know for sure because AF would come fully today; but it didn't again.... so I am still waiting!! It is driving me batty. I am going to test again tommorrow; but if I get another negative and I still have no AF- I am going to go nuts!!! More waiting is still in my future....
