@ScottishMrs:  Keep strong till the 31st! FX for you!!

My boobs were huge this past week and a little sore. Today was my day for AF and I was crampy so I thought that she would come tonight. So for lunch I got a pizza and a coke (to drown my sorrows lol) and said ahhhh to hell with it I will POAS on a dollar store test. Got back to work and POAS’d. Two lines popped up. I put down my pizza and told my dad (hes my boss). I have to tell him because he is strict on me to be at work and not miss any days. I walked into his office and told him I was going to be late a day next week so of course he gave me the stink eye and said why. I said wellll I have to go see the baby doctor. He had the biggest smile.(:

Current at CD35… This is soooo weird to even say out loud since I am a super regular 26-28 day cycle gal! 

According to FF I might maybe get AF this Sunday… If I don’t see something by Wens then I’ll have the Doctor blood test me on the 30th… I got a BFN on Monday so perhaps FF miscalculated my O date and I really am just waiting for AF… Ready for something to happen…

Got a Doctor appt on wens either way for like ‘preconception’ stuff… Even tho obviously we’ve been trying! Ha!

CONGRATS to all the BFP’s out there! Perfect timing IMO…

@ScottishMrs:  Well to be honest. . .I listed to the marketing “Test 5 days before your missed period”.  But then I found out. . .it doesn’t matter when AF comes.  Its all about the DPO baby!  Those are the days that matter.

Two more days and I only poas’ed once. It was a BFN on 7dpo. I just couldn’t resist (This is actually a big improvement considering I once POAS from 6dpo to AF at 16 dpo). Please tell me i’m not the only one.

@EverAfterBegins:  You are the only one. …. Juuust kidding! I once POAS after I had had my period, and I had been on the pill, and we had been using condoms. I got a stomach bug and convinced myself I was pregnant. Little did I know – it isn’t that easy!

While we are confessing: I like to pee on OPKs because (so far!) its been my only chance to get two lines. 

I feel like that should be a post secret – haha!

I’ve been trying not to be a crazy person and symptom spot. Especially since this is my first cycle, and never really ‘paid attention’ to my body the week before AF. I do know before AF my boobs do get sore and bigger, and I do get lower back pain, and lower abdomen pain, but normally not til about 3 or 4 days before she shows. My boobs seem bigger and are sore. I have a backache (but more in the middle back), and was really thirsty and had a dry mouth Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. I felt like I may have had some cramping yesterday night, but it’s possible it’s in my head.
