Crazy thread: list your IPS
29
Fri, 05-07-2010 - 12:56pm

Hello TTC ladies!

I thought it would be fun if we could talk about our IPS (imaginary pregnancy symptoms) here while in the 2WW. I'm not there yet but I know I'll be bugging you all about my "nausea" and other IPS when I get there. So instead of making my own crazy thread, I want to contribute to a community crazy thread ;) I'm not sure if this will help each other or just make us all go up a level in crazy. I guess we'll see!

Ooooh, great idea Kate! Even though I've been at this for a while, I still obsess over every IPS. I will officially enter the 2WW today, so let the games begin!

LOL. Good luck, Cortney! I know what you mean, at 5DPO, you're wondering if your gassy-ness is because you're pregnant, hahaha. I'm so not looking forward to all the speculating.

Good luck Courtney.

All of my IPS could also be the same as PMS (sucks that they are so similar). Bowel problems, morning nausea (never had morning sickness w/ DS), and sore swollen boobs.

(AF is due Wed/Thur next week).

On a side note, we're not officially TTCing right now, but if it happens it happens.

I'm half-way through my 2ww ... and so far no symptoms, imaginary or otherwise lol. I did have a dream last night that I got a BFP, and then a different dream this morning that I got a BFP. Hopefully those are premonitions or something! Lol. I'm in the middle of a move though so I haven't had time to imagine symptoms yet. Maybe later next week after we're all moved in I'll start having symptoms ... but then they might be real! Fingers crossed! If I happen to start imagining

I had my first IPS ... being emotional. I almost cried twice today about things I wouldn't normally. It could be because I spent the last three days deep cleaning and painting my new house and am exhausted ... but I'd like to believe its a pregnancy symptom, lol. I also had a deja-vu situation today that I think I had a dream about, where I found out later that week that I was pregnant (like, in a dream ... I think, lol). I also had just a little crampy feeling in my abdomin today, but again, that could be from all the random generally unused muscles I used painting the past few days. I guess we'll see soon!

Sounds promising! During the month I was pregnant and miscarried, I was only a week past ovulation and I cried because I locked my keys in the car. It's not something I normally cry over so I was very suspicious that I was pregnant. Turned out to be true! When can you test??

Sounds promising.

Today I am very very tired. I even took a nap... so of course I think I am PG. Never mind that we went to be at 1am last night and where up at 7.

LOL. Yes, being tired is not always a pregnancy symptom, but it's usually present when you are. These symptoms can be so confusing! So where are you in your cycle now and when can you test?

Ooh, I'll hop right on this crazy train!


Ok, so DH and I only BD'ed 4 days before O and I'm STILL having IPS. So even though I know its almost impossible to be pregnant, I am still a nutjob. This doesn't bode well for me

LOL, actually lack of symptoms can be good (and also super confusing). Other than being really hungry all the time, I had NOTHING until 6 weeks w/ my twin pregnancy.

I also wanted to say that I have a friend who only DTD unprotected once SEVEN DAYS before ovulation and she still got pregnant. You def have a shot.
