This is our first official month TTC but last month we also had unprotected sex and I swore up and down I was pregnant but apparently I was “over analyzing” symptoms, because AF showed. Did you have months where you swore you were pregnant, but turned out not to be? Did you have months where you swore you were NOT pregnant but turned out to be? Just curious 🙂

I’ve definitely had months where I tried to convince myself that I was pregnant, despite the very small chances for it. It sucks so bad because the symptoms for being pregnant are very similar for those for AF… Of course, AF would start just before I planned to or after I’d done a home test.

Yes! In fact, every month since February. It’s the curse of TTC, I swear. I’m quite convinced I’m pregnant right now, actually, and I guess we’ll find out in a week 🙂

I did a couple months here and there. The month I was, I didn’t think I was. We can sure drive our selves nuts during this process.

Yes, I would have bet my life on it the first month we tried. I thought I had a bunch of symptoms the second month too and then decided my mind made up these “phantom” symptoms. Month three we only BD’d twice, waaay early because projecting out the maternity leave was not overly convenient so we really weren’t trying. I was convinced I wasn’t pregnant and even though I was tired and had an upset stomach I just thought I was getting a cold and the upset stomach was due to post nasal drip. I even went to a clinic the week before I found out I was pregnant because I felt like I was getting the flu. I was fine, and a week later was so nauseous all day that I took a HPT and got a BFP! So for me, being pregnant kind of feels like the flu or having a cold. NOT the symptoms I was expecting!

Yes, in May. I took my test on Mother’s Day. I was surprised it was negative.

Yes. More than once I have been absolutely sure. My body was “just kidding.” :/

Yeah…I’m pretty sure this happens to most of us girlies TTC! I was convinced I got preggo on our honeymoon. We waited and honeymooned 6 months after our wedding, which happened to be when we were starting to try, so the timing was perfect for us. However, here I am six months later and I’m in yet another TTW!

I’m glad I am not the only one…I am currently in my first official TWW so although I’m not as far in as some of you, I see a long road ahead….Good luck and baby dust to all 🙂

@Bao:Ive just had my first week TTC,and it was brutal. I had 100% convinced myself I was pregnant, over analyzing the tiniest symptom and then ignoring the ones that went against pregnancy symptoms. I think if I had been more honest with myself about what my body was doing I wouldnt have got my hopes up quite so much. But I will probably do it all again next time haha!

I’m pretty sure I was pregnant once in college and miscarried. I was a mess, so I think my body knew better than to give me a baby. I went on BC right after that…
Some women were talking about this at work the other day, and one women said she felt like she was about to get her period the entire time she was pregnant…so I guess that’s how it feels?

Yes, the first month we started trying. I was SO tired and I had the sore breasts and I was eating more. I got my period super early, like within the same month so I’m wondering if maybe I lost it? I also had gotten my IUD out at the beginning of that month so I don’t know if it had to do with that too. Everyone I was around thought I was pregnant too, so it was quite a bummer when my period came early.

Every month. My first month was crazy. I was so convinced that I was pregnant because of my symptom spotting. I was so tired and my boobs were huge. Last month, our third month trying, I thought for sure I was because my breasts were still so big throughout my TWW. They deflated on the day AF arrived which is much later than most months. This is my first cycle charting, so maybe temps will show me when AF is coming instead of crazy symptom spotting.
