I’ve always thought I wouldn’t be a symptom stalker and over-analyze every little twinge when trying to TTC. Well, here we are, still two months away from even starting to TTC, and I’m already doing it!
Last week, we got a little carried away in the moment, and didn’t use any protection. This was a evening after my O date according to FF, which makes the idea of an oops from that session unlikely. And yet, I am symptom stalking like crazy! Sore boobs, frequent pee breaks, and tiredness. Which is ridiculous because a) I often have sore boobs at different times in the cycle, b) I am ALWAYS having to pee, and c) being tired is nothing new for me. AND I’m literally not even a full week out from the O date, so the chances of ANY of that being real symptoms are so slim its crazy.
And yet…a teeny, tiny part of my brain is like, ohmygodwhatif? Lol, I am a silly goose.
I guess you can say you’re going to react one way, and then when the time comes, your brain just does whatever it wants anyway. So much for being cool about it.

@IAmTheShadow: Lol I hear ya. However, I symptom stalked for, like, two months (tired, twinges of pain in lower abdomen, nauseous) and then in July I started feeling the symptoms again and decided to ignore them, and I ended up pregnant, lol. I passed off all the nausea and tiredness as a vitamin D deficiency (because that is what they ruled it was caused by at my appointment) until two days before my period when I tested just to see, and I got a pink line. Woot!

@IAmTheShadow: I thought I was going to be SO laid back… Then I actually started TTC and stmptom stalked so badly that if blue feet was a pregnancy symptom, I think I would have dyed them in my sleep.
I was pretty crazy during the TWW! (As it turns out, I WAS pregnant, though!)

We all turn into raving symptom spotting lunatics. I am trying so hard to break out of it but it’s impossible!!!!

Ah, ladies, you are making me go even further into crazy-land with your talk of “well, I was actually pregnant”! Congrats on your bebes!
Maybe by the time we really start TTC I will have burnt out on all my symptom-stalking…one can only hope, or else I’m going to drive myself nuts!

Ha, nope, I was just symptom-stalking. AF arrived right on schedule. 🙂
