OK, hopefully I’m not alone here and maybe it’s because we’ve just started to start TTC and are only on cycle number two but last month and this month it seems like every little thing makes me think “Oh, well that didn’t happen last month that MUST mean I’m PG” I of course don’t get my hopes up but it still makes me wonder.
This month it’s broken nails. I’ve been growing my nails out for well over a year now and they are strong and durable. Right now I’m 8dpo and from 6DPO through last night my nails have been breaking. First on the 6DPO my nail already had a snag I didn’t take care of so it got pulled off when I was out Friday night with my husband. I didn’t even notice until I woke up the next morning. Saturday (7dpo) night my pointer nail on the other hand broke off. This one did not have any breaks in it at all. Then yesterday and especially last night the rest of my fingernails are starting to break and snag on everything and my fingernails are a lot more brittle today. So everytime a nail breaks off I think “Hmm… Are my nails more brittle from hormones and does that mean I might be pregnant?” of course it’s just an idea I like to toss around and dont take it too seriously but it does give me a speck of hope 🙂
Last month it was spotting on 6FPO. It was super super light, like only one spot on the TP. But I’ve now learned that wasn’t even spotting. I noticed this cycle at 2DPO that I had that speck and was wearing the same underwear the day I had the “spotting” last month. I realized the color in the panties leaks, no matter how many times I was them. Very strange.
Am I the only one that reads waaay too much into small things during the TWW?

I think we all do it. Most months I am convinced I am pg lol. Just out of interest…FF has given me a super early and definitely wrong O date and is currently telling me that I have almost as many “pregnancy points” as I normally do post O, so that will put things I perspective for me for the future 😛

OMG! My nails have been horrible recently! I didn’t think anything off it until this post and now I am totally wondering if that’s an early sign??? LOL so I guess yes I know EXACTLY what you are talking about!! I have hangnails and sking peeling off all around them like crazy!

lol, I’ve actually heard the opposite — most women I know taking prenatals gush over how much it changes their hair and nails to be more durable. I guess it affects everyone differently though!

You are definitely not alone! This is my first 2ww, and I know that the chances of me getting pregnant the first month are slim to none, but I can’t help but notice every little twinge and cramp. So annoying!

@MrsNewBride427: this is also my second cycle (first cycle charting) I am also really realy tuning into my body every little thing I notice! I swear I am having twinges/dull pains in my uterus area….I’m only 4 DPO….too early for implantation…I swear I’m not making it up though?! you are definately not alone!!
also prenatals have totally changed my nails, I have never EVER had such strong long nails. Sometimes I look at them and don’t recognise my own hands!

Thanks bees for the responses. I’ve lost another two nails so I’m still unsure lol. I sent my husband to the store this morning to get a FRER but of course he couldn’t find it lol. But when he came in and said he couldn’t find it so he didn’t get one I almost started to cry. What the heck? Maybe that’s PMS since AF is due on Monday. But I’ve been going from near tears to wanting to shake some sense into people and I’ve only been awake 2 hours lol. We will see, I’ll be taking a FRER in the AM tomorrow 🙂 (will be 10DPO tomorrow)

@MrsNewBride427: you are going to make yourself crazy analyzing every little detail. The only sign I had (tho I wasn’t looking & I realized in retrospect) was complete exhaustion. Everything else was the same. I got my positive test at 16dpo.
