Hoping, 2 days away...

Morning!

 

2 days away from expected period...I am always exactly on time.  However, I test all the time.  I got a negative test today, but am experiencing very different symptoms this month.  Tender, swollen, nausea, larger, darken areas, etc.  I just am hoping after years, this may be the time.  I have a shorter cycle of 24 days, so I am hoping it's too soon to show.  I use a mobile app (along with being aware of when I am ovulating) and had the right times for trying.  

or....hoping so much has made me "see and feel" things that aren't true...Do you think we unconciously convince ourselves it could be possible?

Nina, that is a little strange. How heavy was AF yesterday-did it appear to be the normal AF starting? Emotions and stress usually only tend to affect O, not AF. It could be that you will start back bleeding later today. And yes, changes usually happen gradually but this may just be what I call one of those " wonky" cycles.  If AF doesn't start back today, you may want to test just to see what's going on. KUP

Oh Nina, I'm so sorry. I hope this next cycle is all you need to catch that golden egg. (((HUGS)))

Nina - All sounds VERY PROMISING. I think you caught that egg. Come on, reel it in! At 10dpo (tomorrow), you might even be able to get a BFP! I am a big supporter of POAS ASAP. LOL Good luck!

Nina, so sorry for the negative test. Hopefully it was just too soon to test. I'll keep my FX for you.

As for the symptoms, so many AF symptoms mimic those of pregnancy but when we are trying to conceive I think we tend to notice more of them. I really hope yours are the real deal and not just AF announcing her arrival in a few days.
