Question For Newlywed

Your delayed BFP story scares me! I'm 10 dpo...and feel 100% pregnant. This is going to be my first, but I am absolutely sure. Cramps, cm, hormones (both mood and zits), bloated, gassy, nauseated, congested...the works! I just *know*... I haven't tested yet, af isn't due until Sunday. I feel so hormonal right now that I feel like I would get a positive even though it's still early. My question for you is, did you feel it as strongly as i just described? Were you just unsure because of the tardiness of dear aunt flo? My fiance knows all about how I feel, and he's (understandably) cautious until he sees a positive. I just want a positive to validate what I already know. What are your thoughts?

Well, I'm late 3 days and testing tomorrow, My number one sign is bloating, cramps and oh these headaches are terrible and I never get head aches. I know this is a question for Newlywed, she is so helpful, just wanted you to know that I tested Sunday morning (first day of missed af) negative. I'm like you, I'm so sure I'm pregnant, especially as this day goes on. Good Luck, keep us posted

There's no way this could be pms either. It feels completely different, and doesn't hurt nearly as much. I've been having these cramping sensations since Friday (and even a little bit on Thursday). I had my implantation bleeding on Saturday. I decided to go to my fiance's house tonight and test in the morning... And yes...any comments/suggestions/insights would be really appreciated!

My fiance is excited, but kinda like yours, Its hard to explain what's going on with me, I've decided to stop talking to him about it until I know for sure,lol. guys...... I totally know what you mean about these cramps, usually I have cramps and start bleeding right away, maybe like 20 minutes after I feel them. This time though, I have had cramps for 2 days and especially this morning. I left a message for my dr. and will try to do blood test by friday (6days late)

Hey Ladies, I am hoping for good news for both of you. My AF is due on sunday. I usually get a warning cramp 4 days b4 which should come tomorrow. But instead I have been getting twinges on the right and left sides for a few days now... Its unfortunately a perpetual waiting game when you are a woman...

Well since we're both due on Tuesday...I guess we'll have to keep track of each other's progress. :) My fiance is excited too...we're looking to elope instead of the long engagement we were planning on. My sense of smell is increasing too unfortunately. Though I'm not getting morning sickness yet...it makes my coworker's farts even more unpleasant.

good morning ladies! Wow, I'm kinda blwon away that you're asking me for insight, but that cool.:-) I felt pregnant, because AF was so late, AND I had symptoms that just weren't normal for me. I didn't even think to test until I was 8 days late (9/28), because I started to experience strange symptoms. I was on my honeymoon when I was supposed to start. The week my period was due,I cramped instead. I never usually cramp before my period. In fact, usually the only way I can tell shes coming is if I have a strong craving for chocolate, or my bbs hurt sometimes. From the 24th to October 5 I experienced cramping on either side of my abdomen. They're sudden pinches or twinges. Fatigue kicked in and I was sleeping in until 7:30 instead of waking up at 6:30 like I usually do. I would come home from work at 5, and instead of starting on dinner I'd take a nap for an hour and a half. Then go to bed at like 10, exhausted. My s_xual drive started to dive. I was too tired. I was moody and would snap at my husband jsut seconds after giving him a kiss. The discharge continued, and everytime I'd go to the bathroom or wake up thinking AF had come, I'd wipe and it was just clear to yellowish, somewhat sweet smelling CM. Sorry, if tmi,but I think every little detail helps. I started waking up in the middle of the night thirsty. I was drinking more water before I went to bed...and even during the day. I was more thirsty than usual. I then broke out really bad on my forehead and I even had some pimples on my back. Then I started experiencing nausea and mild headaches around the 26th. The headaches would come and go...and are pretty mild. They'd last a minute or so and fade, then come back maybe 20 minutes later or an hour later. I had a feeling of a knot in my stomach. I don't feel like I have to throw up, but I know my stomach is off. I was more constipated than usual...going like maybe twice a week. I took a test on the 28th, and got a BFN. It still didn't make any sense to me why AF wasn't there.Then I took two hpts on Oct. 1st, and they were also BFNs. The symptoms persisted from Oct.1st until Oct.5th. I also developed a new symptom. My nipples were sore and erect!!! I was like, " what the-?" My hubby was convinced my then that I was pregnant. He felt like I was before, but with all the bfns, we just didn't know. I went and bought an EPT 2 pack, because i figured, heck-maybe this brand will work. Nope. Took one Saturday morning (10/6) and got a BFN. Took another Sunday morning , and BFN. At this point I was starting to feel pregnant and just thought that my hcg levels were low or something...so I made an appt with the doctor and got in Monday morning. The nurse and doc said all my symptoms pointed to pregnancy, but the blood work said negative. They gave me a qualitative test, the one that says yes or no, no a quant_tative test, the one that reads your hcg levels. Anyway, doc told me to start on prenatals and if AF didn't come by the 20th this month, to take another hpt and call her with the results. SO, I waited. My discharge wasn't coming as much as before and was lighter. Only noticed when I went to the bathroom..which I was visting more often than not.. The constipation wasn't so bad anymore and I started going once daily. Which is great for me! On Wednesday, the 10th.. hubby and I tried to do some morning loving and I had a strong pinch in my lower right abdomen. That never happened before. I said right then and there, " I really wonder if I'm pregnant, hunny." Anyway...then the next day I experienced v____al dryness during s_x. I've never had that before. That was my last weird symptom. I just knew something was off. On Wednesday I also dreamt I took an hpt and got a faint positive...and on Thursday I dreamt I took a digital one that said "pregnant". Also on Thursday, I talked to my tummy and told baby that he or she needed to start showing himself or herself (and in a good way, with a positve hpt) soon, because ppl were going to start thinking I was crazy and making up my symptoms. I made up my mind by Friday that I would test on Saturday morning, instead of waiting until next Saturday, because one of my friends was getting married, and I needed to know if I could drink. :-) I also started crying at the slightest sentimental things. Anyway, I woke up Saturday, held my pee for 15 minutes, because the pharmacy wasn't open yet), and got the EPTs again. It was say 25 of my period being late. Poor hubby wanted some loving, but I turned him down, saying I was waiting to run to the pharmacy for an ept!!! Anyway, I took the test and in about 15 seconds, the faint positive appeared.!!! then I did a little happy dance and came out of the bathroom to tell hubby it was negative, because I wanted to tell him on our 1 month anniversary the next day. I ended up telling him during Allen Jackson's "Remember When" while we were dancing at the reception. I told him": Babe, I want you to remember the special day for our friends, to look around and remember the decorations and the happiness, and the joy of this day. But most of all, I want you to remember the first time I told you that I'm having your first child." He was shocked and so happy. Anyway........ I took another test on Monday and got a bold hpt. Its kind of weird now that I think about it... My dream that I had about the tests turned out almost like my results. I dreamt of the faint positive and got a faint positive. i dreamt of a clear bold "pregnant" result and got the bold positive on Monday. Lol anyway... I hope my story helps you guys out!!!!!!!!

some women just "know" they're pregnant. I had a feeling I was, but just wasn't sure because of how irregular I am.

 

newlywed0915 - October 17

also... acid reflux...another symptom

 

SaraW - October 17

Well I feel everything you described...right down to the letter. At dinner last night I giggled uncontrollably for a few moments...then snapped at my fiance. Then I realized it was ridiculous that I was mad and started laughing. Then I started to cry and I wasn't sure if it was because I was happy or sad. He was amused at this point. I tested this morning and got a BFN. I'll wait until Friday and test again. I think I'm going to be having a serious conversation with junior before I do! :) Thanks for your insight

 

newlywed0915 - October 17

lol, wow- what an emotional roller coaster!!! hahaah! I hope your prego! You sound like it! When is your wedding? :-)

 

SaraW - October 17

Well it was going to be next September. I'm in culinary school right now and we wanted to wait until I graduated. However...I don't have health insurance and he has great insurance...so we may be eloping in two weeks if we get a bfp!

 

ohgeez - October 17

Well ladies, after being 4 days late and thinking I was preggers, My af came this morning. I was a little bummed, but I think we are going to wait to start trying until Spring, I really want a winter baby. Good luck to all of you and I will keep in touch if I have any maybe's

 

SaraW - October 17

Sorry to hear about that Ohgeez...better luck in the spring!

Aww, what a romantic way to tell your hubby! Hearing all these emotional stories reminds me of when I was pregnant (and didn't know yet). After taking an exam I went ot the bathroom and cried and cried cuz I thought I failed. Turns out I got an "A" and was pregnant, lol. Me and hubby were excited. My lo is now one year old, time goes too fast.
