5dpo - Want to wait and obsess with me?

Postby crysann4 » Thu Feb 18, 2016 1:02 pm

School is on vacation this week, so of course I have more time to obsess! I o'd on Saturday, so I am 5dpo. Yesterday I had some slight dull cramping. I've been SO tired. Like, incredibly tired. I'm bloated, but that happens with pms too. I've been a little emotional. And more, I wake up with this certainty that I am pregnant and this eagerness to pass the time so I can test and confirm it!

Anyone else want to be crazy with me?

Hello! I think I O'd on Sunday (had a positive OPK on Sat. evening). So I'm about 4 DPO... I'll wait with you!

So far here are my symptoms..

1 DPO: Nothing other than a VERY vivid dream of me and my husband finding out I was pregnant on an ultrasound.. I cried and cried of happiness in the dream!
2 DPO: Moderate cramping.. almost like AF cramps. Not sure what this was about. I also had diarrhea 5 times that day (sorry TMI) but this was not common for me at all. Thought I ate something bad or had a stomach bug- but I was fine that night. Yellowish/creamy CM.
3- 4 DPO: Moderate cramping continues.. still like AF. Pretty much dry CM.. every once in a while it will be creamy but not much at all.

AF for me is due the 27th. How about you, and when do you plan to test?!

I haven't had any dreams about being pregnant yet - I hope I do!

My af is due the 26th, the 27th at the latest. I really want to try and hold out till I am late, but I'm not sure I've got the will power to do so. If I make it to 11dpo (Wednesday) I'll be happy. I think that's the earliest I've gotten a squinter, so we'll see.

Can I join in too?
I had a positive ovulation test Saturday morning, tested again Sunday morning and it was negative.
So I'm guessing I ovulated about 5/6 days ago?
I have had no symptoms or signs or feelings at all!
I promised myself I wasn't going to symptom spot this month as it drove me literally insane last moth, but there's nothing to even try and spot!!
I feel quite disheartened to have no signs at all!

Welcome Lou Lou! It looks like we are in the same boat. I am obsessing already. OMG. I bought a thermometer today just so I can temp through the rest of my lp! How sad is that?!

Hi Ladies!

Lou Lou- my best friend got pregnant last month and had no symptoms at all.. She totally thought she was out. She tested when AF didn't show and BAM.. BFP. So don't stress about no symptoms :)

Crysann- So funny the things we do when TTC! I will buy a BBT next month if we aren't successful this month! And am I reading your signature wrong or are you trying for baby # 6?! That is awesome.. so many people avoid having large families these days- I think that is so cool!

If we were successful we all may be implanting within the next few days.. exciting stuff! :)

Veronica - yes, this would be #6! Although, we're not really TTC - it just happened to fall that there is this possibility. And once there was the possibility, I found that I really really really wanted it to happen! Originally, my doctor said I would never have children, that my first son was a miracle. I've been pregnant 7 times, though, and five of those were successful. I couldn't imagine my life with less children! I do get a lot of comments about the number of children I have. I've gotten to the point where I can just ignore it, because my kids are awesome! That said, if we are blessed with #6, that's it for us. :D

I am so crampy today! I've also got the yellowish/creamy cm, but not a lot of it.

Hi Crysann- Yea my sister is is pregnant with # 4 and she gets sooo many comments about it- basically along the lines of "You're crazy!" I think it's so rude! Having a big family isn't for everyone, but just because a couple chooses to have more than 3-4 kids doesn't mean they are nuts. It's just ignorance in my opinion :) So good for you and your SO!

My husband and I are trying to conceive #1... we are so excited!! Not sure we'll make our way up to 6, but who knows! :p

Yesterday (4 DPO) I had moderate cramps that continued throughout the day, mostly around my right ovary and my right lower back. My legs also felt sore and my knee was aching (I have bad knees and weather changes usually make my knees ache- but there weren't really any weather changes recently here). And gas throughout most of the day which I never have! Of course I'm noticing EVERYTHING.

5DPO (today)- mild lower back ache and right ovary is still cramping slightly but not as noticeable as yesterday.

It's 10:20am here in California... where are you ladies from?

I'm from Vermont - it's 2:00pm here. :) We didn't start out with a plan to have a large family, it just happened. :D At this point, it's mostly what's one more person except more to love? :D My doctor told me I'd never have children, and I am grateful that he was wrong!

The first baby is so exciting! Well, they all are, but the first one... I remember it clearly. I hope it happens quickly for you. How long have you been ttc?

Well, it's morning here! And 7dpo for me. I don't know if these count as symptoms but I'm going to add them anyway:

Yesterday, I had some brief soreness on the underside of my left bb. Now, last month I had horrendous pain on my left bb and I was not pregnant, so... I don't know. Last month was the first time that had ever happened to me.

My almost 4 year old ds was stuck to me like glue yesterday and kept rubbing and hugging my belly. Randomly, too! It was kind of weird. (But cute, too!)

I got a small shamrock shake from McD's (I usually get one per year) and it was awful! The mint tasted off - it was like sucking on a eucalyptus cough drop. Neither SO or ds thought theirs tasted odd.

I also had a tough time sleeping, but I'm not sure if that was because I was planning on temping. I did manage to get 3 hours of sleep in at my normal time and temped at 97.85 this morning, which is definitely a post-o temp for me. The last time I charted was probably 8 years ago, and this was way high for me. My body might have changed since then, but I'm pretty confident it's a good temp.

I've also got the same feeling I had when I got pregnant with my youngest - that this is the month and I've just got to wait for my body to tell me so. :D Of course, if I'm not I'll probably be crushed!

Happy Saturday ladies!
Oh, and I figure I can probably make it to 11dpo (Wednesday) before I cave. :D

Can I join? I got a positive opk Sunday and spotted (only when I wiped..sorry if that's tmi) on Tuesday after some mild cramping. I don't usually spot at any point before af. But this is our first month trying so I'm just now noticing things. So anyway I'm guessing I'm 4dpo. I've had dull twinges of cramps on and off since yesterday. But maybe that's in my head? Who knows. :p

Hi jlynn! I've heard that spotting during O means a really strong ovulation - I hope so! FX for you!

Morning!
I am nauseous this morning. I do believe it's too early for ms, but I'm hoping! Also, my temp was 98.42 this morning - quite a jump from yesterday's. I sooooo want to test, even though the probability of me getting a bfp is slim to none. Trying to hold out. I am going grocery shopping, though, so I might pick up some tests....

How are you ladies doing?

I'm now 7/8 days past ovulation, and apart from some cramping yesterday afternoon still no symptoms whatsoever!
Feeling really disheartened
I deliberately ordered a couple of tests online rather than getting them in the shop so it delays them arriving for a few days so I can't be tempted to test early!
Although I'm still hoping for a BFP, I just can't feel it happening this month :(

Thanks crysann! Same for you! I love what you said about your son. I'm hoping that's a sign for you because I do believe children and animals have a sense for that. I know it's not quite the same but before my sister in law knew she was pregnant, her dog, who is usually lovable as it is, was by her side constantly and resting his head on her belly.
