TWW Is Driving Me Nuts **5DPO

Postby babydust4me » Sun Nov 22, 2015 8:52 am

Hi all. This TWW is driving me nuts. I'm 5DPO now and I can't wait to poas. I know it's way too early. AF is due Dec 2. I know I can't wait that long to poas but I will hold out until my bday Nov 25. I'll be 8DPO. Still early but a BFP would be the best birthday gift ever.

I've gotten these little twinges on my lower left side on and off since yesterday. At one point they were fairly sharp but that only lasted about 2 or 3 minutes. My optimism has me thinking it was my little bean arriving in my womb. I hope so.

Anyone else in the TWW going crazy with anticipation? Are you having symptoms? What are they? Tell me I'd love to hear about it.

Crickets chirping in this over 30 TTC board. I thought there would be more support here. Oh well...

I'm 6dpo today and the only thing I've noticed are sensitive nippies. It could be a sign of conception or just my normal hormones. FX it's my little bean sending signals that she's in there. I caved and poas today. I wasn't expecting a bfp. It was more therapeutic than anything and I had an FRER left over from last month. I do believe I had two chemicals these past two cycles as I received a very clear single line. No evap, no indent, and no faint positive. It's weird how when I poas and I KNOW I'm not preggars or not far enough along yet then it's a definite no. I believe the FRERs are so sensitive that they pick even the smallest hcg level shortly after implantation even if the little bean doesn't stick. I got 3 positive FRERs last month and I didn't notice at the time but each one was a bit lighter than the one before and then I got nothing clear negatives. I've decided to wait until Friday to test again. By then I should have enough hcg for CBE to pick up. ( Chances are the suspense will kill me and I'll test on my bday Wednesday but whatever it's my bday and I'll poas if i want to lol)

Well that's my tww rant for the day. Thanks for reading. Feel free to join in with your own tww story or any story. I'm listening.

Much love and babydust to all!!!

Hey babydust! I am 6dpo today so we are very close cycle buddies!

I have the sharp pains as well. I think its from the progesterone surges in my system. I am not taking progesterone pills, but every month after O I feel sharp pains for a week afterward, which is so confusing! Since its too early for implantation, I ignore those pains in every cycle. I have some breast pain too, but thats also common for me. Oh well...

I hope you don't obsess too much for Thanksgiving. Are you going to drink?

Hi scarletWillow. I'm not obsessing too much. I got my hopes dashed two months in a row after several 'false' positives. However, I did freak out a little yesterday when my nippies weren't sensitive at all. I thought my progesterone was dropping in prep for AF. But today the sensitivity came back with a vengeance! I felt dull rumbling cramps on and off last night then a sharp pinch that lasted about 3 or 4 seconds. Ofcourse I rushed to google that symptom and sure enough a few folks got bfps after that pinch...lol. Ok maybe I'm obsessing a little. But it's so exciting. My DH thinks I've lost my marbles. BFN this morning around 8am but it's still early in the game (couldn't help myself I had to pee on something:)

6-7 dpo is around when the implantation process begins. I recently learned that it attaches then burrows deeper which can take a couple days but that hcg starts pumping when it first attaches.

No, I won't be drinking this holiday.

Let me know if you get your bfp. FX and babydust for us both!!!!

FX for us!! Yeah, sounds like normal 'after O' symptoms. Same here. Now I have some sore boobs and spasms here and there, but otherwise nothing. I had the same thing last month. Don't worry about the BFN - lol you had to POAS haha

I will pretend I'm drinking this holiday. If I don't, my family will be convinced I'm preggo, but there's a good chance that I'm not, so I don't want them thinking anything right now. I'm going to be really sneaky about it. My mom said she would help me fool everyone because she knows I am still trying and that there's a good chance its not happening this month.

Aww scarletWillow...we're going to think positive. This month IS our month. It's not over until AF rides in on her broom.

I have a couple bottles of sparkling apple cider so I'll be pretending too ;o)

BBT of 99.4 at 8dpo 6:30pm. I have no idea what that means. This is my very first time taking my bbt. My oral temp is a perfect 98.6. Does that look promising for pregnancy? Any incite would be appreciated. Thanks

I got a squinter this morning!!! When I say a squinter I mean a SQUINTER but it's there. After taking it apart it's definitely not an evap or indent. It's a line. FX my little bean sticks. I wanted to post a pic but it's so light the camera won't pick it up. I'll test again tomorrow morning and every day until I miss af. Praying that line gets darker. After two chems in two months this has to be my month.

Babydust to all of us!!!

I just tried to attach my pic but it said it's too big.
