Edit: New Cycle Support! Previously - 10 Days to POAS

Postby RachelLiz » Sun Aug 21, 2016 8:00 pm

This is my first month seriously TTC, and AF is "due" 9/1. Trying to wait until at least then to test. Anyone in the same boat? Maybe we can keep each other sane.

Also, all of you who've been at this for a while, TWW-ing again and again? You're incredible, and please don't ever doubt that. That is such an incredible amount of strength. All of the good and fertile vibes in the world out to every single one of you.

I'm due around Sept 2. I probably won't test like crazy though. I did that last time we ttc for a couple years and it got to be a little much so I'm hoping to relax a bit this time. I will have to test before AF though since I need to know before my physio appt.

This whole ttc thing is insane hey? Good luck to you this month!

Hi! I'm due for a visit from AF on 8/31. I sure hope she doesn't come! I had a miscarriage in April after having my tubes tied for 15 years. Had no idea pregnancy was possible! And now I can't focus on anything else. Just trying not to test too early!

I swear, every time I tell myself I'm not going to obsessively symptom-spot, something happens I can't ignore! I usually get sore breasts with PMS, but it's early, and I just had about 30-45 minutes of intense nipple pain (it would have been tingling but it was so bad I'm calling it pain) from a very small temperature change - one floor to another in my comfortably air-conditioned house. Either that, or someone posts in the Symptoms board with something I'm having too :)

Anyone else feeling anything, or have you with previous pregnancies?

I never get any symptoms out of the norm. I try not to symptom spot too much either but it's hard lol.

I'm taking Clomid so I have all the symptoms! Ugh! Sore breasts, emotional, bloated. Only a few more days to wait though, right?

Less than a week to wait! (If I can even make it that long...)

I (sitting by myself, in a relatively good mood, minding my own business) just cried honest-to-goodness tears at the THOUGHT that I could need to "bother" (my word) my lovely sister-in-law with pregnancy-related questions if we were lucky enough to have conceived this month, because I don't have any close friends who've been through it. Not my normal PMS behavior, so I don't know if it's a symptom or just the stress of waiting.... time will tell!

Good vibes to all of you lovely folks :)

About 7dpo here and also trying to be patient.

I never used to cry, at all, and nothing made me sad enough to tear up, but now that I have a kid, it hasn't gone away lol. I surprise myself all the time by tearing up to totally random-not-at-all-sad songs on the radio almost daily.

I had no idea hormones could have so much impact. Hope it's a good sign for you.

Thanks B! I normally think of myself as a pretty rational person, but between the randomish crying and the "symptoms" that are probably mostly in my head, I'm not feeling very rational right now! Part of it I think is that I have no idea what to look for, so anything out of the ordinary *could be* something, or could be nothing, you know?

Good luck!

Yep. The problem is no symptom is reliable. It can mess with your head lol.

I stopped symptom spotting years ago because it was just too unreliable no explainable but it's hard not to notice every little change.

Yep.. I couldn't wait. BFN. Not even a hint of a line. Still a little early, but with the miscarriage in April I knew before now. And with this Clomid I don't seem to stop crying. Not me at all. Still hopeful but I don't think it's my month. Good luck to both of you though!!

It's still early - don't give up yet!!

I can't sleep, which is very unlike me. I fall asleep fine, then wake up every hour or so (and I wake my husband up because I'm cranky about it, so he's thrilled). Probably stress, but I'm hoping its progesterone related... My usual PMS symptoms seem to be mostly missing. Usually I'm eating everything in sight by now and these past few days I'm having to force myself to eat because nothing sounds good (except milk. Loving the milk.). Trying to wait until at least Monday to test.

Fingers crossed for everyone!
