Heartburn Waiting Game

i have to admit i'm always reading on this discussion board, and always posting answers. it helps to have a community of people around who are supportive. we've been ttc for 4months now, and AF is due on the 17th or 18th (didn't do opk this month, so i'm not sure exactly when i ovulated though i did pay attention to ewcm). the past two days i've had AF-like cramps; yesterday i had a tiny bit of pink spotting when i wipped (pin-p___k size). and today i have ridiculous heartburn, both after breakfast and lunch. i'm afraid i'm starting to imagine symptoms, but heartburn is a good sign, right? how do you ladies keep from going nuts and not thinking about this all the time? this would be our first .... *the wait is so ridiculously hard!* good luck to everyone.

I am thinking about it all of the time too. It will be our first, and I am also due for AF on the 18th. However, I just came off the pill at the beginning of Dec. so I might be irregular. We'll see. The mind is a crazy thing though! I think we are just trying to tune into what our bodies are doing so much right now that we are noticing every little thing. Some of the "symptoms" that we all think might be a sign are probably just normal, but we never dwelled on them so much because it didn't matter before. It's hard not to though. Good luck to you :)

thanks so much, rachel, for your kind note. let me know how things go for you. it helps me to see success stories on this website! i had troubles coming off of the pill (very irregular cycle), but i hear that a lot of women end up being very fertile right after going off of the pill. we still waited a year after i got off of the pill to start trying. i think you hit it right on the head: we are ridiculously attuned to our bodies right now, much more than usual! GOOD LUCK!

i never get heart burn either, jenna! what do you think - good possibilities? so exciting that your period is a week late. have you tested yet???

Johanna, What type of strange problems did you have going off the pill? I went off in June and we have been ttc since. My period was normal for a couple of months and then went irregular. My last period was almost two weeks long, and I think my leutal phase is now very short (I've been taking my temp). Anyways, I had an ultra sound done, and everything is normal. This week the doctor's doing some blood work, but he thinks that I might just be irregular from coming off the pill. Were your irregularities anything like this? I'm worried that something more serious might be wrong with me...

hi renee- the thing about my period was mostly that it was ridiculously irregular once i went off the pill. 45 days here, 20 days there, just a bizarre "cycle" if you can call it that - and it lasted over a year... until it got normal. and i got really, really bad acne from it. good luck! it can take a long while for your body to get back into gear!
