On cd14, my breasts started to hurt and the cramps were mild AF cramps. My breasts are still sore and I still have AF cramps. On certain days, the cramps were a little more pronounced, but nothing crazy.
About 2 or 3 times a had a mild headache for about an hour or two.
But yes, my symptoms are definitely similar to AF. I took my first hpt this past Sunday and AF wasn't due until this coming Sunday, the 3rd. I definitely think you can take a hpt now.
God Bless and keep us posted! Hope to see you on the 1st tri board.View Thread
Well ladies....it was confirmed by the doctor today....I'M PREGNANT!!!!!
This was "sort of" unexpected. DH came down to help move into our new place. We moved in on May 10th, but since I have a 31-day cycle I figured this time would be too early to conceive. My period started on May 3rd. Apparently, I ovulate very early. My first BFP on a dollar store HPT was 11dpo (if I ovulated on cd14, could've been earlier).
I'm so excited!!!
MrsBurt and Hearther, I hope to see you on the 1st tri board in June!!!
Took another dollar store hpt (had bought 2, wish I had bought 3).
In the 3 minute timeframe, it was very faint...however, in 4 minutes, it was clearly a light 2nd line.
I'm still not convinced though...AF still isn't due for 6 days, based on a 31 day cycle.
I'm going to the dr...hopefully tomorrow if they can get me in same day, if not on Wednesday because I have this killer vaginal infection that I need treated ASAP. I've been spraying the outside with a apple cider vinegar/water mix and that has allowed me to wait before taking any medication without seeing a dr.
Hopefully, I won't have one of those experiences where you get faint lines at home, then go the dr and their test comes back negative.View Thread
May 3 - cd1 May 10 - cd8 - dh and I BD'd May 13 - cd11 (about 2:30am so could be counted as cd12) - dh and I BD'd May 16 - cd14 - Tender Breasts and mild cramping
Since my breasts were tender on cd14, I'm not sure if I ovulated a day or two before then or on that day.
May 17-25 - cd 15-23 - Breast Tenderness and mild cramping May 26-27 - cd24-24 - Breast Tenderness and cramping more pronounced. Took dollar store hpt and after a few minutes there was a 2nd line that was so faint you would think your eyes are playing tricks on you or you would think that line automatically shows up that faint simply because it got wet.
AF isn't due until June 3, so it is super early to test, but since it's about 11-12 dpo, I figured I'd take the chance.
I'll take another one on Wednesday morning or later in the week if I can help it.View Thread
Wow! Praise the Lord! Hearing your good news really put a smile on my face. That is awesome!
And DH taking that job 16 hours away isn't that bad...at least it's 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off and it will provide the salary of a full-time, consistent job...and being able to have your check just go to savings...icing on the cake!
