Welcome Sarah! My brother and I were born 10 days apart in March. It's not so bad to share a birthday month.
Leah I had sore BBs at like 7DPO with DD. I thought it was from a new bra and even remember complaining to my BFF about it. Being pregnant didn't even cross my mind then but now that we are TTC I over analyze everything. I hope it's a pregnancy sign and not a PMS sign for you!
Wendy, I hope it's implantation bleeding too. If not hopefully you can get some answers when you see the specialist. So glad you got the referral finally!
Glad to hear you had the sore BBs with your DD so early! See I may have last time but I can't remember when it started. They were definitely my first symptom that I was really aware of and that was not in any way subtle. It was the reason I tested because they had never hurt that bad. I would wake up in the morning and my first thought would be how much they hurt. I tested positive then at 11DPO but I didn't test until then. My lines were very dark with no hold so I'm thinking it would have showed up at least a day and maybe two before that. I'm hoping that means I'm an early implanter and this could actually mean something. I also felt this way before when I was on fertility meds but I was also on progesterone and estrogen. This cycle is 100% natural. So I have no idea what's normal anymore. Lol.
Coming out of lurk mode! My DH and I are TTC #1 (this will be our 3rd cycle) However, the first 2 were whirlwinds with over sea's travel and 13 hour flights and then moving across the US.. so this time, now that we are settled, we really timed it to O, and now I am in the 2ww. Hoping to join this group!!
p.s. I have a lilypie ticker-- How do I add it?!
Welcome hopefulmomma2b! I think with a lilypie ticker all you have to do is copy the link it gives you for forums BB code I believe and then past it in your signature. I haven't done a lilypie one in a while so I can't remember if that's all but I think that'd right. Lol.
Wendy, have you tested? I can't remember. I would think at 12DPO you should get a pretty clear answer unless you implanted late or something. Sounds like you could be having IB though. FX that's what it is! I know how frustrating it is. I've been going nuts myself in the 2WW.
AFM- I don't know what to think. BBs are still sore, last afternoon and evening I felt awful. Just really fatigued. I'm usually a total insomniac and DH has to fight me to go to bed at a reasonable hour but last night we went to bed and the same time and I went right to sleep. Slept 9 hours since the baby decided she'd sleep a long time too. Lol. Woke up feeling just as tired. I rarely get more than 5 hours a night though so could just be that my body wasn't used to that much sleep and it was too much. I've also had some cramping today. The heavy kind. I usually get those right before or during AF but she's a good week away, or should be anyway. I refuse to believe they're pregnancy related right now though. I've been faked out too many times. I plan to stay busy and out of the house until testing time so I don't go insane thinking about it all too much!
Wendy--I thought for sure I was starting my period because I had some spotting that turned to old brown blood. TMI alert--and I continued to have brown clot type bleeding for several days. Then it stopped and I thought for sure that I was just about to see AF. When she never came, I took a test and had a blaring positive 2 days after AF was due. So bleeding is not always the end of the line!
Leah - your chart is looking picture perfect! I hope this is it for you! I can't tell you how many people I know who have adopted after years of trying and then boom, they are pregnant!
Wendy - hang in there!

My Ovulation Chart
Spotting picked up a bit, not just the couple of hours in the morning/lunch time. I have no idea what to think. I did have spotting for a good portion of my pregnancy with DS, but that started at 9 weeks. I guess tomorrow will be a deciding factor, does it pick up, does my temp drop, is a bfp in my future.
