@JumpingJacks:  I’m in the same boat.  8DPO and stressful job.  The only reason why I think the opposite in my case is I’ve always had every symptom you listed.   My body is very vocal when I’m not treating her right.  I think its wonderful that your taking the day off and looking into stress management. 

To help me, I am a huge proponent of exercise.  For me it was yoga for years.  The only reason why I’m currently not active is I’m looking for a local studio, under chiro care, and adopted two LO in the last 3 months.  Well, having adopted our newest family members have kept me quite active.  They have been a Godsend for lowering my stress level due to work and TTC.

I’m also really focussing on spending time w/ my girlies and family.  I’m a proud library card carrier.  Planning some wkend getways before summer.  

Personally, I find that if I keep my personal life active and mellow, I don’t get as stressed.  I’m soo Type A and its natural for me to try to SAVE the WORLD.

i hope that you’re body is giving you good signals. I’m like Squeak35  I get them every month so I’ve come to start ignoring them.  I too have a stressful job and lifestyle.  Hubs is a pilot and is gone a lot so I have the burden of running the household.  He’s good about helping when he’s home.  I can’t complain because he really does help.  But the daily things like paying bills, shopping and taking care of the fur-babies is hard.  I also run the family business.  I do pretty much all of the office type functions.  We’ve had a rash of burglaries and 3 small first aids this year that has gotten stressful.  We never had anything and then to have both robbery and injuries has been hard.

We have a wonderful patio and I love flowers/plants so I’ve been sitting on the patio watching the flowers bloom and dreaming up my next gardening project.  Something about being outside makes you relax and soak it all in.
