I have been (hopefully un-scarily) stalking your good selves for the last few days and have been delighted to see a good number of BFPs happening, with more to come I hope. Huge congrats to all those lucky ladies, and fingers crossed for those of you still awaiting your "double lines of glory".
I have been having a few signs and symptoms and I would like to compare notes. (I really should know already having been round this particular track 3x before but.....each pregnancy is different?)
I have:- achy lower back (kicked off this morning)
metallic taste (yesterday)
feeling "off" (a bit nauseated/ headachy)
exhausted but not tired
achy lower abdomen
sore boobs (however it is a bit of a "which came first- the chicken or the egg" situation. Are my boobs sore and thus I rub/ poke them, or have I rubbed/ poked them and thus they are sore? )
I am 11dpo I think, but as this would be a "whoops-condom-failure alert" moment I am not sure. We are not TTC, but all I can say is the condom was there when we started the whole BD fun-fest, and when it "came" to the crucial moment said condom was flopping about between the sheets like a lonely goldfish.
I have done a test which I am translating as a BFN (I even took your advice and did a pink test rather than blue). Thoughts?
Pregnancy.org was my happy place for my last 3 pregnancies and I would be honored to join all you lovely ladies if it proves that I am pregnant again. However, if I am not I will go away and stop being Stalkarella Queen of the Stalky People.

Welcome and good luck!!!!
TTC 2 Years +
Welcome back, and I hope you stay as you are hilarious!
Ladies - what a gorgeous welcome - thank you.
Quietly, just between you and me, my heart hopes I can stay here in the warm and loving bosom of June 2013, but the rational part of my brain (which is VERY tiny) can see a few valid reasons why a real BFN would be better. We would need a new car (our current car is only 6 months old but only seats 5), bigger house (3 bdrm and 1.5 bathrooms is barely cutting it with 5 of us), I am Mrs Oldy McOldy-Lady (40 and feeling every year of it at the moment) and let's not even get into the 100 foot waves of disapproval that will thunder over us when we tell family. Plus I am excellent at pregnancy but mega-pants-uber-crap at birth/delivery with 1 forceps/1 Em CS/1 planned CS. However, putting all that aside I would love to have one more gorgeous blond in the family.
Also, I would feel a bit of a fraud. Most of you lovely ladies had charted, OPK'ed and bonked your men ragged to get your delicious BFP and I would bounce on in with a "whoopsy-poo" that just happened to occur in the middle of my cycle.

As for tests - the online Magic Eight Ball has said 4 times in a row that I am pregnant, so it must be true right?
