Hey everyone!

Congrats sea_bass!

This is our first cycle TTC and I am so anxious to know! I am suppose to start AF on Wednesday.. So 4 days till.. And I caved this morning to POAS. Sadly, a BFN but I know that doesn’t mean it’s for sure until AF is here.

My boobs hurt more then usual and slight cramping but those aren’t anything different then my usual PMS. I never knew how tough and long this wait would be!

@anotherbee:  Thank you all so much!!! I am over the moon! 

While I was out I picked up a card that said DAD on the front and wrote “To the future.. DAD” on it and gave it to my husband. On the inside I wrote how excited I was to be going on this journey with him. Initally he totally didn’t get it and just thought it was a card because we were TTC. He pretty soon got it and he was so shocked. We cried and hugged and now he is gone into full planning mode about how he is going to remodel the house etc…

As for my symptoms, I think I have listed them pretty extensively here for you all (sorry about that!), but here we go anyway..

So from a week ago I have had extreme tiredness, like body aching cannot get off the couch for love or money type tiredness.

Around this time I started to get gentle stabbing pains around what I guess is my ovaries are. This was always on the right side as was very different from AF type cramps which I always get on the back. This was constant, and I tried to put it down to the bloat. 

I also started to have very frequent urination from Monday. I normally urinate very frequently anyway as I drink a lot of water but this was different. If I didn’t get to the toilet immediately I was about to wet myself, (sorry TMI). I know this is a very early sign of pregnancy as the kidneys ramp up. Also my BF had this as her first symptom pretty soon after ovulation. I thought it might be a UTI (again sorry TMI), but I didn’t have any pain with it.

Then, my wisdom teeth came up yesterday. I know its completely anecdotal but I read alot of posts from women who had their wisdom teeth come up in the early stages of evry pregnancy they have had. Could be a coincidence to be honest but its super painful. 

All this week I have been very bloated as well. I ate very well this week as I had an enourmous box of organic vegetables to get through. So I definately was not having anything unhealthy or that would warrant this bloat. If I pig out on carbs I do normally get a bit of bloat around the gut. I didn’t at all this week and I have more bloat than I have ever had. 

Lastly, this morning when I woke up my boobs were HUGE. And painful, and veiny and very sore to the touch. Its like it happened overnight. I normally get bigger breasts right before AF so last night when I first noticed it I was rather sad… This morning it was something else. Huge. 

I am not sure when I ovulated. The FRER I took just now seemed pretty dark. I am on CD32 now, but my cycles can go above 50 days. My guess is I O’ed somewhere between CD18 and CD22, before today I had thought it was much later like around CD24-25. Who knows, I hope the doctor will be able to tell me. 

Thank you all so much for making this so much fun!! (And convincing me to test) If you all hadnt told me to I would not have tested this AM. And thank you for listening to all my crazy symptom spotting which does not seem so crazy now!! 

Good Luck to all of you!!!

P.S. I feel like such an idiot for starting the October 14th POAS club and then POAS a whole week early. I suck. I know.

@anotherbee:  LOL. Too right! When I woke up this morning I had only slept for 4 hours because I was waiting for DH to get home. When I POAS first thing I was so shattered I didnt see a line and was cursing you! I went back to bed to lick my wounds and chastise myself and when I woke up properly and looked at it, I was like “Wait a second,,, THAT IS A LINE! A LINE! I take it all back!!” Embarassed

@Sea_bass:  Now this is a fine woman right here!  Gets her pos a week in advance, rightfully full of joy and hopefully overwhelmed with wonderful emotion with her DH, and she still thinks about the rest of us and wants to poas on the 14th in solidarity. Wow.  Go Go Team POAS 14th! (i imagine us like the Power Rangers)

@Sea_bass:  hey just think… If the creator or of the Oct 14 POAS club got a BFP… the odds have got to be in the favor for those of us left to poas in a week. ๐Ÿ™‚ right?!

@CuriousOne:  I just went downstairs to my DH and was singing the adapted version of the power rangers theme song. Thank christ he has no idea what “POAS” means… I am totally with you all on the 14th! You cant just start a POAS gang and then abscond your fellow power rangers?!

@MrsDW:  RIGHT! Right indeed! Gahh I so wish I had waited to be with you all. But so many of you said to test this AM. And lets face it, who could have put up with my outragous symptom spotting any longer…

Attention 10/14 POAS gang!  We get to POAS in just one week!

I am trying my best to reverse symptom spot, especially since I’m only 3 DPO today.  The good news is that I got a + OPK and nice big temp jump confirming O, which means our BD timing is right on the money.  How is everyone else feeling?
