    @funsizedbee:  congrats mama! 

     

    AFM, ugh. I have a confession. I caved and tested this morning at 9DPO. BFN. Now my good feeling about this month has gone back to neutral at best. Why oh why do I do this to myself? We’re taking a snow day today so I thought it’d be romantic or something to get some news today. UGH UGH UGH. Must think positive thoughts until Sunday when I test for real.

    BFP ladies, I see y’all are getting your food aversion symptoms and nausea already. I still have nothing besides the burping and sore boobs and slight pressure in abdomen/slight pinching near ovaries and sometimes belly button. I have zero cramping and yesterday I polished off a burger like it was going to run away from me. As much as I’m scared to get bad morning sickness, now i’m worried I don’t have enough symptoms for this to be real. How silly is that?! Tomorrow marks exactly 1 month since the start of my last period (12/4) so maybe week 5 will bring more symptoms and hopefully make it more real. 

    @funsizedbee:  that looks like a line to me! congrats!

    @BellaDee:  Yes, the line is pink. I took the picture 2 or 3 minutes after taking the test.

    I am in shock! I plan on buying a FRER later tonight after I shovel my way out and the roads get better.

    @BellaDee:  yes I suppose that’s true! I know it gets said a million times on these boards, but I’m so ready for this process to be over.

    @E_Lynne615:  Fellow googler here! haha. I googled my prenatals yesterday (Solger brand) and found they contain 160 mg blend that contains l-phenylalanine. Started googling that and apparently it’s linked to birth defects in high concentrations of 1000mg or more if taken everyday. Immediately spent my entire night convinced that I’ve ruined my pregnancy already. As for symptoms, I posted above that I still don’t have nausea/food aversions/cramping as I finish out my 4th week, so googling that led me to increased risk of miscarriage. I’m insane. I need to lay off the internet, it’s the worst for anxiety. lol.

    ps- my husband worked with the son of the actor that plays the most interesting man in the world. son said his dad is a horrible person and he hates him. guess he’s not that interesting to everyone! πŸ™‚

    @atlbride2013:  I guess he’s interesting by way of being awful…! πŸ™  
    You need to stay off Google, your little baby is going to be just fine!! πŸ™‚

    @terpalum10:  I made myself wait in bed this morning until I had to pee so bad that I couldn’t stand it, then I knew I wouldn’t have time to dig a test out of the cupboard before I peed! πŸ™‚ Tomorrow morning can’t get here fast enough! I know it’ll still be early, but I’m holding out a little bit of hope that I’ll at least get a squinter!

    MANY congrats to all of the ladies who have gotten BFPs already this month–this is amazing!!

    AFM, Fertility Friend gave me solid crosshairs for 11DPO (Monday)!  If this is accurate (and it looks like it is), we had pretty super awesome BD timing this month; we hit CD 8, 9, 10, 11, and 13.  I now really wish we’d gotten 12, too, just to complete the set, but we were too sleepy. πŸ™‚  I’m now 4DPO, and symptom spotting like mad, naturally. I’m still feeling optimistic!!!!

    @E_Lynne615:  Love your POAS avoidance technique… Maybe tmi but your stream would have been so strong it would have knocked the stick right into the bowl πŸ™‚

    @MaggieF:  And then I would have had to come on here and tell the story about how I stuck my arm into the toilet to fish out my test and “do you guys think it’s ruined or was there enough pee in the toilet bowl to get a good result?” craziness… Haha…
