Hey Julie,

I can't remember if I had symptoms w/ my first pregnancy cause I waited all the way until 14DPO to test and got a blazing positive (twins). I know I felt crampy early (like 4 weeks). When I was pregnant in March, I had those cramping and twinging feelings starting with ovulation and I really started to notice them around 3DPO as well. I got nausea starting at 7-8DPO that went away when the hcg was going down (one of my tipoffs to the m/c). I think those cramps and twinges are for sure an early sign of pregnancy. I didn't have them last month when we weren't trying. Then again, I had those this month too and I got a negative HPT yesterday at 11DPO.

I think it's perfectly acceptable to test once a day if you have it in your budget to do so. Kelly on the other board does it twice a day! She even builds it into her monthly budget. I think it's fun to analyze lines but really what we're all looking for is that second line that is no doubt a second line. Good luck!

Well, I had the "twinges in my pelvic area, and very slight cramping" starting at 10DPO, but before that I felt nothing... But every woman, and every pregnancy is different, so maybe they are true PG symptoms! I say POAS!

I will admit a confession too. I think I used about 10 HPTs this cycle. It is our first since the m/c, so I won't be able to do that again. I would LOVE to be able to test every day. The OPKs satisfy me til O, but then I get the itch to pee on stuff ;) So what brands did you get? I have to reorder some OPKs for next month and the place I order from gives you free cheapie sticks. Maybe that will placate me until I actually get to a late period. I don't have much hope for next cycle though because of timing so it shouldn't be hard to wait.

For now, I can obsess with you over your IPS! ;) If anyone can give you hope and also bring you back down (when you ask for it), it's me!

I think if you post it in the pregnancy section, people shouldn't have a problem with it. They might see it as a good story of hope, but can avoid it if they're not in the mood to hear about someone else's pregnancy.
