    I’m sorry you’re going through such a roller coaster this month!  Honestly, yes, your symptoms sound as though they could be early pregnancy symptoms, but they also could just be a nasty case of PMS this month too.   I know easier said than done, but try not to worry about it so much as the stress could be wreaking havoc with your cycle right now.   I would keep testing every morning – only once per day, only one test! – until you either get your BFP or AF arrives.   Until AF arrives, there is always a chance…

    Fingers crossed for you!

    I say there’s still hope.  Sending baby dust your way! 🙂

    I found this about pregnancy tests, I hope it helps. It’s not over until AF comes but testing early can give you a whole lotta heartache. Hoping it’s your cycle!

    HPT Accuracy Results Percentages:
    (Based on a 25mIU sensitive test)
    10 dpo : 35%
    11 dpo : 51%
    12 dpo : 62%
    13 dpo : 68%
    14 dpo : 74%
    15 dpo : 80%
    16 dpo : 88%
    17 dpo : 92%

    Bunny, this sounds SO PROMISING! I really really hope this is your month! Do you temp? What are your temps doing? Staying high?

    Realistically, you should probably wait a day or two and then test again, but who am I kidding, I’d pee on a stick all day every day if it weren’t so detrimental to my sanity/bank account.

    Please please let us know if you test today and what the outcome is. Crossing my fingers for you!

    I say you are in until AF shows.  If I were you I would test every day until you get a + or AF shows.

    However, I also feel compelled to add that I have been absolutely blown away by the power or psychosomatic symptoms since I started TTC.  I keep careful track of my TWW symptoms so that I will not be fooled again, but my body keeps coming up with better and better phantom symptoms to trick me.  If you are getting negative HPTs at this point, you are probably not KU.  BUT, since your LP is normally 12 days, I would wait until 16 DPO and if there is no AF, go to the doctor and get a beta.  Some women just never get + HPTs.

    I voted Yes, but I would wait until Friday for a couple of reasons…

    The first is that seeing negatives everyday is just fustrating and makes you stress over it.  Try to focus on other things (easier said than done, I know).  But I also know that feeling you get in your chest when you see yet another negative at this point in our TTC journeys.  It hurts.  And testing when there is still a chance it won’t show just makes you more anxious.

    The second is that your periods might not be considered “late” for a couple of extra days on Clomid because it can lengthen that part of the cycle.  It is such a tease when you think you are late, but it is only because of stupid Clomid. This might not apply to you since your LP is shorter than average, but it is still a possibility.  For me, AF came (on Clomid) at about 17 dpo, sometimes even 18. 

    I think your symptoms sound really promising though.  I very much hope this is your month!!!  I had what felt like an oncoming cold starting at 7dpo.  I had some dizziness and nausea at about 10dpo that lasted about 2-3 days.  It felt like I was getting the flu.  It felt quite different from when I thought I had symptoms before…I mean different than the symptoms I had previous times when my mind was playing tricks on me.  Like, more real.  Not like “hmm, could this be nausea?”  It was like “oh shit…I’m gonna puke!”

    Good luck!!!!!

    @Vitsippa: If I would have seen this earlier in the week, I wouldn’t have gone through 4 HPTs in hopes of getting a BFP. Guess waiting until Friday or AF is what I have to do.

    I think there is still hope! I think that your symptoms sound very promising. If I were in your position I’d keep testing every morning honestly. The only reason I don’t like waiting is because I have low progesterone though and the early I can find out about a pregnancy and get on prometrium the better. I get so nervous that that one day that I didn’t test I could’ve gotten a positive and already be building my hormones to help the chances of healthy baby.

    If progesterone wasn’t an issue for me and I was in your situation I’d wait until Friday. Good luck!

    I’m not going to comment on whether you should hope because I’ve been there and the hoping is frustrating in itself.  But I’ll hope for you!!  You’re not out till you’re out.

    @bunny: I hear you on the waiting and the cramps. Mine have been especially bad and even stabby today. I just want Friday here now.
