DH and I are officially”trying” and this is my 1st post on this board. I am excited, nervous, freaking out….It’s a big deal. The waiting to test thing is so difficult. The worst part is I will be out of town with my family without hubby, when I am supposed to get my period:( I am only 1 DPO now but need to know what “symptoms” if any to look for before testing. I have never even taken a pregnancy test before….so this whole thing is so new to me.

Don’t symptom spot. It will drive you crazy. I recommend waiting at least 10 DPO before testing. FX for you!

Last month was my first month and I drove myself crazy with symptom spotting and started taking pregnancy tests way too early. This cycle I’m waiting till at least 12 DPO till test.

@PumpkinSpiceChai: EXAAAACTLY. It was way rough emotionally to get repeated negatives, then a positive, then AF. I wish I hadn’t tested at all!

I haven’t been at it that long nor have I ever taken a pregnancy test, and I set the expectation for myself early on that I will NOT symptom spot because it can drive a person crazy.

Never look for symptoms. There will be different symptoms each month, the less you stress the easier it is to TTC. Good luck!
