I can totally understand why the suspense is killing you! It is so hard telling what is going on but I think the temp increases and nausea are a positive sign for sure. I couldn't tell you if you should test now or wait- I just know I would have a hard time waiting! Good luck to you and please let us know what you find out.

i am in a similar position ! ...i've been told notto test until the end of next week and it is driving me NUTS....i've been queasy a few times, even got very faint at one point the other day...i have the excess of gas too ! and i have been having what seem to be hot flashes for past couple of weeks......for me this would be totally unexpected..but the not knowing, even when you haven't been trying, is soo frustrating !

So I tested today at 14 dpo and.... BFN. However, AF is two days late (and my cycle is as regular as a clock) and I'm not feeling the usual symptoms associated with her onset (I get monster cramps) so I'm keeping hope alive.

Thanks for the support

I'm sort of in the same boat with you right now, only I have a 5 month old daughter. I should have ovulated somewhere around the 30th, but didn't use a kit to determine if I did or not. AF is supposed to be here Friday for me, and I also have the gas, sore boobs, kind of crampy feeling but not like the AF is coming kind of cramps. I have been pregnant 3 times all together. First BFP I found out the day I was supposed to start, second BFP didn't show up until about a week later, then with my daughter, I found out again on the day I was supposed to start. At this point I'm thinking it'd be kind of pointless for me to test now bc even if I am pregnant it's probably not going to show.

It is very possible to get a BFP around 10dpo, but at the same time, I think it's more common to find out around 14 dpo. Only one way to find out though, and that's to test. Maybe get a multi pack take a test today, and one in a few days.. I'm thinking of doing that too, just b/c I can't wait! lol. good luck to you!
