BFP wanted! (m)
Sun, 04-06-2003 - 9:48am
DH and I have been TTC for about 5 mo. LMP was 3/4 or 5 (terrible, but I don't remember. Not charting). Had some very light spotting around suspected O date, and then again last Friday, but nothing since. AF is DEFINITELY NW, but is supposed to arrive today or tomorrow. So far no spotting or anything, which I usually have several days before hand. DH and a good friend are both RNs, and good friend thinks there's a good chance I could be pg, as I've been really emotional, and she said that was one of her first symptoms last year when she was pg w/ her 1st. DH also has been teasing that I may be, as smells have really been intense (and sometimes offensive) to me. We want a baby so badly, but I'm desperately afraid to get my hopes up (which isn't keeping it from happening, mind you!). Am I reading something into this that isn't there, or does this seem like it could be a possibility? Assuming AF doesn't show, when should I test?

guardedly hopeful

I would test when I expected AF to arrive-if you said tomorrow then do it this week for sure! and this is just me, but when I was pg last time I didn't really get any symptoms until implantation, as I *think* your body has no idea you are pg until implantation (usually 2 weeks after conception). My first symptom was AF like cramping-I wore pads for 3 days before I decided to DUH, take a test LOL.

Good luck!!

I would say buy a test tomorrow if you don't start and take it the next morning with first of the morning urine :)
