Ugh….so frustrated with this TWW. I’m 12 dpo and experiencing many pregnancy symptoms: cramping off and on (mild, nothing like AF), occasional waves of nausea, sore boobs (never had this for pms before), creamy cm, plus I have bright blue veins popping all over my upper body, but mostly my boobs.
I said I was going to wait until Saturday to test, AF due Sunday. But I finally broke down and took one this afternoon, BFN. I’m so confused, I was really feeling like this was the month. Maybe I tested too early? Or maybe I should have used FMU? I don’t know, just generally feeling blah and emotional.
How is everyone else doing in their tww?!?!

@MrsCaruso2be: Haha – i feel your pain! Hang in there – this is our 4th cycle trying and I was totally like you on the first 3 only to be let down everytime I tested with a big fat negative. So this month – I am not thinknig about it. AF is due next Thursday and that is the day we leave for our weekend trip to SanAntonio – so my decision is pack some tampons and hope I don’t have to use them – come home to a BFP! I think for me its upsetting to get a BFN but its not as bad when I dont continually do it to myself by testing too early or symptom spotting.

@MrsCaruso2be: After 6 cycles, (this one being my 7th) if I have learned nothing else, its to wait until you are LATE. Otherwise you frustrate yourself and set yourself up for disappointment. I’m only 6DPO and I have rapid waves of nausea and I’m so flipping bloated I feel like someone socked me in the gut. And I dosed off at my computer for about 2 minutes earlier this afternoon. That was awkward…
Sometimes people don’t get their BFP until 14-16DPO. So hang in there, wait it out, and test again in a few days.
Sending you best wishes that you get that BFP soon!!!

I got a BFN the day before my AF was due and two days later when my boobs were on fire I tested again, Digital said 2-3 weeks. Wait til after you are late! You never know 🙂 I’m Five weeks 3 days today and still feel like its just pms 🙂

My second TWW was crazy- my boobs got huge (well, for me, I’m usually an A cup) and pointy and my nipples were super sore! I’ll sometimes get sore, bigger boobs a couple days before AF, but this started over a week before! I was sure that was the month….and when it wasn’t (AF actually arrived four days EARLY, so I didn’t even test and see that stupid BFN) I was pretty crushed. One of my best friends had just told me she was 6 weeks pregnant and I was so excited about the possibility of us being pregnant together. Sigh. I’m just about to start my fourth TWW and I’m really hoping this is the one. I’ve also decided to wait until AF is late so hopefully the next time I take a test it’s a BFP, because BFNs suck!

If you had anything to drink your urine would have been more diluted than it would be first thing in the morning, so I’d re-test tomorrow with FMU.

I would wait till the day of your last period. Its still a little early to test and you still might be pregnant! Also test on your morning pee, you will get the most accurate result by doing that.

Don’t give up hope yet, wait a few days, and test again.

I agree with all of those who said wait. I tested first thing on a Thursday morning…nothing. When I tested three days later (first thing in the morning), it came up positive. I couldn’t believe that those three days made a difference, but it did!

@MrsCaruso2be: I was TTC for 8 months. I learned to test only when AF was late and only with frer. Also, I never kept tests in the house. When I finally got BFP, the line was so strong there was no question. Also, I had no major symptoms until AF was two weeks late. I know you can get symptoms early but not everyone will and symptom spotting will drive you crazy!! I have my fx that this is your month.

Sometimes I got AF symptoms up to TWO WEEKS before AF was due! Sometimes just a cpl days before. Ideally it is 5-7 days before for me. But as you can see, it can be ALL OVER THE PLACE. And they were of varying degrees. Sometimes boobs/nipples were INSANELY sore. Can’t even breathe on them. Other times they would only hurt to the touch.
