    @anna4041:  Sorry hun symptom spotting is horribly cruel. We’ve been TTC for 7 cycles now and there have been 2 cycles where I am CONVINCED I am pregnant and alas wasn’t and still aren’t. You could wait to POAS until AF is due or even 1 day past AF and I’m sure you’ll get your answer, try to distract yourself because it can really consume you.. Good luck 🙂

    some cycles i feel every symptom in the book and others i feel nothing.  i’ve spotted for 2-4 days prior to AF every cycle since starting TTC.

    so i would say possible.  you won’t know until you test or AF comes.

    i am not a POAS addict and wait until AF arrives.  i’m on cycle 5 and have not POASed in the last 3.

    When I was pregnant my sense of smell was off the charts but there were quite a few other symptoms to go with it.  I think you are doing the right thing to wait and test.  Its hard not to get your hopes up but good luck!!

    Hmm… hard to say. 

    I would wait until AF is late then test.  Personally, I did not get symptoms like increased smell, acid reflux and shortness of breath until I was about 5-6wks preggo.  I totally understand that it’s hard not to get your hopes but good luck!

    @anna4041:  Are you taking your BBT and checking your cervical mucus & position? That will really narrow your O day down; apps are not that reliable.

    symptoms of PMS are very similar to pregnancy.  i got pregnant 2 cycles after stopping bc and the first cycle i had more “symptoms” than i did when i was actually pregnant.

    eta: wait a few days and test!

    @anna4041:  That’s fine if you think BBT will stress you out more, but the way you worded that makes it sound like you think people who do temp stress about it or think about it all the time. That’s not at all true. For many, taking their BBT takes about 2 minutes and that’s it. I’m not being snarky, but it’s also not a fair implication.

    If there is enough HCG in your body to be causing pregnancy symptoms, then there is enough to be detected on a pregnancy test. I would test if I were you!

    That said: symptom spotting is a b!tch. There were many cycles I convinced myself I was pregnant based on symptoms. The two cycles I got BFPs I didn’t have any symptoms until after I got a positive test!
