Good Morning Everyone!

As of today I am on CD 28 and currently no signs or symptoms of AF. I tested Friday afternoon and Saturday morning and got a BFN on both of those tests. I haven't really had any symptoms of early pregnancy.....I have had a sore throat and stuffy nose for about a week ( I am only mentioning that becuase I read about two other ladies that had those symptoms and got a BFP). I don't temp (I'm still new at this...DH and I have been TTC #1 for 6 months), but I did feel warm yesterday. I've had some white discharge - but nothing that looks anything like AF. I've also had cramping but

Unfortunately going by symptoms alone to determain pregnancy is a difficult one because they mimac AF symptoms. Some of the best early pregnancy symptoms don't happen until around 6 weeks or so when you already know you're pregnant. To add to the confusion of our bodies, everyone is different...where some may have an increase in discharge, others like me become a desert. Where some may have breast tenderness, some just have a change in their aerolas, where some will say they had a cold, for others it's the current virus going around and so on. It is truly the worst part of TTC. I would say to test every 2 days. Every couple of days, your HCG will double if you're preggo. I know you said your cycles are irregular, is there a pattern for them? When do you expect AF? Any idea how many days past ovulation you are? Most accurate answers will come at around 14dpo but a lucky few will get them at 12dpo. Good Luck!

It kind of just sounds like you're sick :-(
But keep testing until AF comes or you get a BFP, and keep us updated!

I worked hard to get preggers with my twins and I remember I was shocked when I got my bfp at 14 dpo....I felt absolutely no different than any of the other months I had tried (18 months). Tender breasts, but I always have tender breasts right before my period. And it was no worse. One thing I did remember was that on 11 dpo I had the WORST itchy nipples EVER. At the time, I thought it was a detergent issue, but I hadn't switched recently....I had no idea it was an early sign. It lasted a day and a half and it was unbearable. Then gone! But, I was pregnant with twins, so maybe because my hcg # s were higher that that happened. Who knows! Good luck!

Don't be discourage. My friend got preggo this month and she was feeling fine and no signs of AF or pregnancy. When I was preggo with DD I also had a cold, so hang in there.

I've also had a new weird symptom the last three nights....I've been woken up between 1 and 3 in the morning with awful cramps....feels like AF is coming so I run and check .... nothing. Usually is gone by the time I wake up?? Still waiting on AF and am on CD #31.....
