this is long... pls forgive... i am stressed... :-) been on here for the last 2 mos. congrats to all the preggos out there and for the rest of us... baby dust!!! I have a 11 mos old. and 4 older children. (11,12,13,&14). hubby and i want 1 more to keep our youngest from being treated as an only child... (we love a BIG family and so far the kids are doing great with it!). Hubby leaves for Iraq in 4 days and when he gets back we won't want to start again with a new baby, so this is our last attempt. I have kinda irreg. cycles (the last 6 mos cycles have been starting with my last one were 25,26,29,30,27,& 27 days long) seem to be getting shorter so no clue when i am ovulating. af last came 27 days ago on Dec. 25th. I have had very sore bbs for about a week right after i should have been ov'ing, cramping, headaches, nausea (not throwing up tho), milky discharge from bbs when expressed (stopped nursing 6 mos ago), full feeling, no veins showing in bbs however like I normally do if preg., menstrual cramping, bloating, bloody nose, you name it... swing in and out of each feeling after a couple days. i normally do not get anything except pms moodiness and cramping 1 day before af comes. I have taken a few internet early detection hpt's ... all neg, but i dont trust them... and have decided since things are so stressful to get a quant_tive blood test. went today and got it and will find out the hcg level tomorrow. I am swinging from it will be negative to it will be positive.... anyone out there to share the exasperation of waiting with????

I will share it with you! I'm in my six month of TTC (first child) and this month is different than all the rest. I've been having twingy feelings in both sides and occasionally in the middle, b___sts are ENORMOUS, bloating, terrible gas pains, felt dizzy when I went for a walk yesterday. I can't stand waiting!! It's worse this month because I feel totally different symptoms than I usually (think I) feel. My hopes are really high this month and I just don't know if I can take a BFN!!! I'm due on Tuesday, when do you think you're due?

good to hear from you! according to the last 3 mos, af should have been here yesterday or this morning (normally shows early in the day) but all my cramps are gone today. they were here 2 days ago... bad! i will join you on the ga__sy symptoms... i can tell if some of the cramps i am having are gas or menstrual! baby dust to you!

You both sound just like me! I was due yesterday??? I don't have cramps but i did have little pinches a couple of days ago. Waiting is the worst. Baby dust to the both of you!!!

Thanks JaWsGirl... you too! hubby and i were talking about it a couple days ago when i was sure af was on her way, so he was feeling let down... i always tell him everything, but for some reason i didn't tell him that i went for the test today. he was bummed when i told him before and with everything going on i dont want to get him worked up. we are a blended family (i had 3 kids from 1st marriage, he had 1... then we had our little one together... we have adopted each other's, so now we are the 2005 version of the brady bunch. his daughter had such a hard time learning to share, etc. going from being an only child to part of a bigger group so, we don't want to do the only child thing again with our ds. this will sound gross... but i am feeling very moist down there and never feel that way before af. i keep getting up and going to the bathroom to check if she is here!

Baby Dust to both of you!! I'm feeling like I'm falling apart at the seams today. in addition to all of the real or imagined pregnancy signs I have a terrible cold, so I can't even really be sure what is the cold and what could be real signs. That's encouraging that you're both late!!
