Girl take a test!! I got my BFP at 9dpo with a FRER and it was decently dark for being 5 days before my missed period. I could have easily had a BFP at 8 dpo.

You could be PG, I would take a test in 2 days in the AM with FMU.  As for nausea, that usually doesn’t settle in until 6-8 weeks. But of course everyone is different.

 

FX and good luck!

It wouldn’t hurt to take a test. If money isn’t an issue, I would just go with a FRER right off that bat (but that’s how I roll). Since you may have to test again closer to when AF is due, I would get a larger pack of these. It does seem like you do have a lot of the symptoms of PG but then again, it could be a bug going around. FWIW, when I wasn’t PG, I got weird symptoms but when I didn’t get any symptoms (aside from my usual PMS symptoms), I got my BFP. That said, everyone is different.

Since you seem to be TTC, best of luck to you! Hope you get your BFP. πŸ™‚

@Peffy:  I’m the same way. I bought a 20-pack of wondfos from earlypregnancytests.com for $20. That way if something shows on one of those then I can go use a FRER.

Hehe yeah I agree with the others to take a test! I bought a ton of wondfo ovulation and pregnancy tests from amazon for very cheap when I was ttc πŸ™‚ If your husband thinks it will waste money to test, then you can maybe wait a few more days and see how you feel, but I’m a test addict, haha.

Definitely take a test, it’s the only way to tell…

I was totally symptom spotting all month… Now I’ve basically convinced myself that I’m not (I’m probably not) it’s a crazy circle!  Take a test, if it’s too early just test again when/if AF is late.  I’m testing tomorrow, if it’s negative I’m giving up this month. lol

@Peffy:  anything can be a symptom if you’re looking hard enough! I know it’s tough, but I say try to hold out until you miss your period.

@Peffy:  you could absolutely be pregnant… BUT 7-9DPO would be very early to be having most of these symptoms. When we first started trying I had every symptom under the sun, and a new combination or a new symptom every month. After a few months I learned that it is progesterone that causes the symptoms of both PMS and pregnancy – so it’s possible that you are experiencing some ‘symptoms’ but that they are just PMS symptoms that you didn’t notice previously. 

You can check the power of ‘in your head’ symptoms by telling yourself that a symptom is tingling in your right foot – it’s not, but I bet as soon as you start thinking about it, you notice it πŸ˜‰

Oh, and when I finally did get my BFP (15 months later) I barely had any symptoms, certainly less than all the other months!

All the best though, hoping it still turns out to be your month πŸ™‚
