I have officially decided the TWW is evil. Mine should end sometime this weekend, and I can’t take the suspense! The symptoms don’t help. My boobs have been wicked sore since Saturday, I’ve definitely been unusually moody, I’ve had random bouts of low level nausea, I’m exhausted, and now my lower back started hurting.
I feel like Ron Burgundy all “I’m in a glass case of emotion!!”
Anyone else fighting with the TWW?

@BRbee: The first two cycles off of birth control were BRUTAL with pregnancy symptoms during the TWW. It was awful. This one is less so, but I’m only a couple of days in to the TWW so it could get worse. I’m just making a conscious effort to ignore it and NOT symptom spot. It will make you crazy. I have no more HPTs at home so I won’t be tempted to test early and be disappointed by a BFN. Just trying to relax and go with the flow. Of course, in the back of my mind, I am thinking, wow this month I have hardly any symptoms, maybe that’s a good sign?! Gosh I really need to stop it!!

@BRbee: YES! For 10 cycles I’ve been analyzing everything! Sore boobs, blue veins, fatigue, nausea, CM, cramps, temps, etc. I read a blog ( I don’t have the link or I’d give it to you) that talks about different levels of progesterone your body produces every TWW. that’s why some months you feel more symptoms than other months. It’s the progesterone that mostly gives you all those symptoms. It sucks.

Im sorry you feel like that. I hope your symptoms do mean good news for you, lady! I have been on that boat much too many times and it def is a killer….I have gotten better now and the fact that I started charting helps too. Are you temping? Hopefully you dont have to. FX

*raises hand* I always said I’d never be one of those people who symptom spots. First ovulatory cycle off BC – total loon. And we’re even NTNT so our timing is pretty bad even! I’m hoping I get less excited about it in coming months.

Unfortunately it doesn’t get better! Well for me at least. I tell myself every day, no that’s not it, I am probably going to start AF soon. Then I feel a weird twinge and get hope back again! After 9 cycles it gets really old. I hope you get your BFP soon so you don’t have to deal with this!

TTC sucks! i’m having so many symptoms at the moment too – or so I think!
I’m in cd28, not sure if I ovulated but definitely hormonal. Trying to keep calm as my last cycle was 122 days!
I buckled and tested today but BFN. I really wish i could just forget about it and get on with life.
I think I should probably stay off the TTC boards for a bit so that I’m not constantly thinking about it but it’s so hard!
Keeping FX for you!

@august05: Different levels or progesterone? I never knew that! I suppose it makes sense.
@MrsR4ever: No not temping. This is (I’m pretty sure) my first ovulatory cycle since getting off the pill almost a year ago-first round of Clomid-and my periods have been super wonky. I’m hoping the meds will even them out a bit.
Well ladies, count me out of the race this month. I found out around lunchtime that unless this is some very heavy implantation bleeding, they were all just really bad PMS symptoms. 🙁 Boohiss.
@Mrs.LemonDrop: Yep I told myself that lie too. 😉 It’s ok, it’s hard not to get excited with the whole process.
Good luck to everyone still waiting!!
