So I'm in my 2WW! Yayy.. lol I can actually say I hate the 2ww. It's most stressful time & it drives me nuts. Anyways I decided to make this post to compare dpo symptoms & testing. I'm gonna starting testing 5-6dpo cause I want to see a progression from BFN to BFP. Thought this would be fun & maybe ease my time :) hopefully AF won't show her ugly face. I have a great feeling this month all fingers crossed & sending baby dust to all & please if you want to join me please do. Share your dpo symptoms plus feel free to add your tests. We can share this long 2ww together

There is no possible way to be pg and have symptoms at 4dpo...the egg has not even made the journey into the uterus to implant yet.

I have short cycles also! 25-27 days typically.
Jan 11th - period showed up.
Hubby and I are BD approx every other day.
Jan 18th- LASIK procedure done! Yay I can see clearly now! Glad I got it done before my ovulation date though.
Estimated ovulation the 21st-23rd. (I don't do OK tests)
Now I am waiting about 2 weeks so I can start testing around 7DPO.

Kimbertchil, Well I'm having a different cycle this month along with OV. I chart my symptoms every day regardless if it's related to pregnancy or not. I like to know the charges my body goes through before during and after.. it's just a great way to pass this 2ww! I do believe you can have changes & symptoms early. My thoughts as you have yours!!

It's not thoughts I have, it's science. Sure, you can feel different things but as far as testing at 4dpo, that's never going to result in a positive result. Your body isn't even producing hcg that the test is trying to find in your urine...

Also, progesterone mimicks pregnancy symptoms. Your body is gearing up for either of the two. When progesterone drops later on your luteal phase, that brings on your period.

I know I won't get a BFP on 4dpo probably won't get one if im blessed till at least 9dpo but I want to test & see progress it's just something to have faith in & poas is great when ttc.

Ohboy....I thinks it's great to document all of your tww. It's always great to be familiar with your body and to know what it does! If you want to start testing at 4dpo.... go for it! It's really cool to watch a faint go to a strong line and if you want to catch that from the beginning do what you want. This is your journey :)

You go girl! I think it is important to document any symptoms you may be having. I like how it helps keep us busy during the tww. I am looking forward to seeing your
