Panic! at 8dpo

Okay, not compete panic. An inkling of panic, really. My symptoms seem SO different and promising, but what if it's all just trickery? It won't be the end of the world, but I'll still be bummed. :/ I'm still holding out hope for Sunday!

I'm only days away from a 60-something percent accurate result. Thinking about it makes me want to pass out or throw up - but maybe that's the pregnancy at work! ;) 

Panicked but positive. Is that possible? I reserve the right to be contradictory. Lol.

Oh and the vote I put up to keep me entertained is 18 to 1, YES. If that can't keep me hopeful idk what will! 

I welcome any comments, rants, and distractions. :)

6mo ttc - 7mo off bcp - 8dpo



Stay calm! :) this is my 6 month trying to concieve as well. ugh in ever feel anything outta the ordinary. I feel a little bloated in my lower abdomen but that's about it!! I am 3dpo so it's way to early!! Are you feeling Nything besides panic? Lol

I'm also 8dpo, but I woke up with some spotting today. It could be implantation bleeding, but I usually spot about 5 days before I'm not as positive a you other symptoms besides the spotting :(  

Mild spazzling is acceptable but thou shalt not panic! You only have a few more days to find out the big potentially AWESOME news, you can do it! What day are you testing?

Ok yeah I see you plan to test on Sunday. Saturday is gonna be tempting! We'll try n keep you strong. Those 18 YES votes sure are cool!

My cycle is pretty much the same as yours , at 9dpo and freaking out literally for every little thing. we've been ttc for close to an year now and am running out of patience. Realllly looking forward to the next couple of days for something good. Good luck to you for the much awaited BFP.

Thank you, ladies. :) I'm definitely feeling tons of new sypmtoms - the panic is pretty typical, though, lol. AMV - have you tried anything to even out your luteal phase? The five days' spotting sounds like it might be working against you.  Bringonthebean - true, true. You know what I realized?! I might have an Octobean! Bahaha.  My brother will be in town some this weekend so I'm hoping that can keep me distracted from testing earlier. I just found out another friend is pregnant - not trying, using pull out method - and I couldn't help but feel jealous! Ugh, I hate the ttc part of my brain sometimes. Hopefully some of her clearly magical baby luck will rub off on me. 

no, I haven't tried evening out my luteal cycle and i wouldn't even know where to start...any suggestions? I'm relatively new to all this, so I appreciate and welcome any and all the information you have to offer! 

I'm no expert, but I've read multiple days of spotting before AF could indicate a luteal phase defect. The good news is there are lots of things you could do for this! You could try FertiliTea (i totally recommend it) or fertilaid, or various herbs. I wouldn't worry too much about it, but it might help to try something if you're up for it and see if it helps with the spotting. :)

Thanks so much. I'm absolutely going to look into it. Spotting has always been an issue for me. I'm glad I came across your blog. Be sure to keep us all updated!
