    Default Help me resist

    I totally did not think I would be this pre-occupied with whether I am pregnant or not. In the past, I have not thought much about it and only tested on the day my period is due or late and if I have definite symptoms, but starting at 7 dpo this cycle I am kind of obsessing over whether I'm pregnant and have been analyzing my symptoms and chart way more than I expected. It's driving me batty and it's kind of out of character. Who have I turned into? LOL

    AF is due on Friday - DH is away, so I don't want to test before he's back on Weds - and will only do so if symptoms are still there. So far I have sensitive/sore boobs (less so today), and have been generally tired (which is not all too unusual) and hungry at odd times of the day. Also have had an aversion to alcohol (which is highly unusual - lol!)

    I am right there with you, I'm only 5 dpo, and am determined to wait until 12 dpo to start testing, but it is KILLING me!!! I don't even have any symptoms, I'm just a poas addict Hopefully we can both hold out until testing time

    I've never been a poas addict which is why this has taken me by surprise. I'm 11 dpo today, so I hope I can hold out until Thurs/Fri. As long as my temps are still up on Thurs morning, I *may* test then. Can't believe I'm so wrapped up in this - it is sooo not me to be this way - ugh! I really hate getting my hopes up.

    I'm right there with you! I tested yesterday knowing it was way too early, but I just couldn't help myself. The bad thing is I have no idea how long my cycle is, as this is my first one in over 2 years, and I have no idea when I ovulated. I'm trying to be carefree about getting pregnant, but it doesn't seem to be working. I don't want to temp and do OPKs, but I'm finding my mind wandering to those very things. We'll see how this month goes! Good luck to you!

    Well, temps are dropping so I'm pretty sure I'll get AF tomorrow or over the weekend. I'm guessing I was probably a bit over-focused on it because this is the first month that the stars aligned for us to DTD around the right time and it was the first month that the OV watch worked properly. So, on to hoping for a June baby.

    I'm obsessing too, and never did when I was ttc DS. Not sure why. Maybe because I reaallllyyy want to be pg this month. Also, I'm having symptoms, so that is making me even more obsessive. I'm 8 dpo and I am trying to keep myself in check until at least 12 dpo. Good luck!

    Yeah, I'm terrible. I'm 8 dpo today and caved, obviously a bfn since its way too early, but I just couldn't stop myself.

    I'm right there with you! I'm 9 DPO, and I think I'm going to test tomorrow morning on the 16th. I can't wait until the 20th or 21st like I originally planned. Of course, I'll test on those dates too. LOL
