Waiting to find out is driving me nuts!

So far this *looks* like my most promising cycle, its just a bit weird because I'm on day 15 and it looks like I ovulated on day 10, which seems really early and is way earlier than most of my other charts have shown. Which if thats the case DH and I just caught our window this month because he had to travel out of town for work this entire week, which ended up being cycle days 11-15. I was sure this month was doomed because of last minute travel, now I have to sit and wait for what feels like an eternity to find out for sure. 

Also my temp dropped just a bit this morning, I've had odd sharp cramping today and I've just been feeling a bit off for the last few days (again still seems a bit early for showing an implantation dip, etc). I'm really hoping I got pregnant this cycle, but I also realize this could all be me wanting to be pregnant really badly too. I'm not due to start my period until sometime in early November, this wait is the worst!

What do you think would be the earliest I could take a pregnancy test, at least how many days past ovulation should I wait? I know Fertility Friend says 18 days, but I'm not sure I can hold out knowing that long if I don't get my period before then.

Thanks!

 Hi Kristina. How is that chart looking? I know the 2ww seems like an eternity-it's that way for all of us. I hope you caught that golden egg and get a BFP soon. I normally don't like to test before 12 DPO because it causes more stress and worry. Some early tests could give you a + result by 10 DPO. I've never been lucky enough to get a + before 12 dpo though. Wishing you the best. FX

Post a link to your chart so we can help you obsess over it!  

I've never been lucky enough to get an early BFP.  In fact, I've never had a BFP before 15dpo, even with very strong pregnancy symptoms (and not the imaginary type, either!)  You can take a chance and start testing early...or you can wait until AF would be due or is late.  Either way, good luck to you Smile

Okay, I can't figure out how to attached a picture of it, but I did find a way to link to it (Let me know if it actually works this way!):

As far as I can tell - it looks promising so far! :)

Thanks!

I realized it doesn't show, and I didn't mention when we bd'd this cycle, but we caught the day before and the day of O. This has been the one month that my temps and the way my chart looks are practically textbook (except for prob. ovulating early)!

I'm 10 dpo tomorrow.........hurry up and wait I suppose, lol. Laughing I might try and test Saturday (13 dpo) and see what happens. Trying not to get my hopes up - but now I've got sore boobs to go with my other symptoms, which I don't usually get with just PMS.

Your chart looks great so far.  &&&Fingers Crossed&&& for you!  What symptoms are you having, in addition to the sore (.)(.)s?

I've had nausea off an on since the day after O, which has calmed down. Lately its been more light-headed-ness/mild dizziness and I've been exhausted, yesterday I fell asleep on the couch around 7:30-normally hubby and I are night owls. But last time I was pregnant I would crash about that time almost every night.  I also had a bit of odd kind of sharp feeling cramping around 5 or 6 dpo (close to when my temp dipped, so I'd like to think that was implantation). Certain things smell a bit funny too. Normally I like the smell of coffee, but right now it just smells off. I also can't keep my cat off of my lap, lol. Guess if I am pregnant someone will be enjoying the extra heat!

I kind of have a feeling that I am, but I don't want to get my hopes up over a gut feeling that might be my body messing with my head, or vice versa, lol. Even with our daughter I just kind of knew that I was pregnant before I took a HPT. Might sound even wierder, but again when I got pregnant with our daughter I swear I could tell after DH and I bd'd that I was going to get pregnant, and I had similar feeling on Day 10 of this cycle, just kind of dismissed it at first because I didn't think I would ovulate that early!

I sure hope this isn't all in my head!

Hi, can I please join in here?  I couldn't help but get excited reading the previous posts, it sounds really promising for you Oogie22.  I read your chart, it looks good, and the symptoms sound promising too. 

My fx and everything else for you, roll on cd18 so you can test!

Kristina, that chart is looking awesome! I am so hoping for you! I'll be stalking for your test in the morning! Keeping everything crossed for ya!

Ava! Glad to see you here! I came over 2 cycles ago to get these girls opinion on my chart- they are great and I like coming here to look at the charts. I meant to tell you that you can PM(private message) me anytime you want if you don't see me on the TTC over 40 board.

Thanks for all the positive thoughts! I actually broke down and tested 10 dpo (got a neg) waiting was just killing me. Although I really would have been seriously surprised if I had gotten a + result THAT soon, me just being overly hopeful! Trying to be more patient and cautiously optimistic. :D

If I get that BFP this will be one of the first places I tell everyone - if I am pregnant, DH doesn't want to tell anyone until we have all of our family here on Christmas. I want to burst and scream it from a mountain the moment I find out that I am pregnant, lol! Mostly because we waited that long with our daughter and I ended up delivering really early (@ 29wks) so everyone really only knew I was pregant for about 3 months. I'd like to be spoiled by people slightly longer than that and hopefully get a bit closer to full-term the next time around. :)
