Pretty sure at this point that I ovulated a day or two after DH and I last dtd this cycle, which would put me at 9-10 days dpo. For the past couple, I have been experiencing:
-super sensitive sense of smell
-extra hungry--like I eat and 10 mins later, I feel hungry again
I feel like it is too early for symptoms and that it must be in my head, but it seems to only be intensifying. I actually wasn't obsessing until I started having symptoms, and was not EXPECTING any symptoms yet, so if its in my head, it's subconscious. At first I thought it was just coincidence because there was no way it could start this early.
AACCKKK! I really want to hold out to test until next week, but I can't take this, I feel like a crazy lady. DH is afraid I'll be devastated if I get a BFN because I'm being obsessive, but honestly, I'm fine with that, I didn't expect to get pg this cycle anyway, I just want to KNOW one way or the other!
I completely understand. I struggle so much with waiting to take tests that I haven't taken OPKs or anything this month so that I wouldn't know for sure when I ovulated. My doc just had us DTD on a schedule so we wouldn't miss it whether it was late, early, or on time. So far that's helped with the stress but now that I'm pretty sure I'm in the 2WW I have no idea how I'm going to stay busy enough to not POAS in the next two weeks. My DH is always worried I'll be disappointed too so he tries to encourage me to wait, but I also just want to know sometimes as well whether it's BFN or BFP. Do you have any cheap tests you could use that wouldn't be a huge waste? I know a few people recently who got BFPs at 8 and 9DPO so it definitely happens. Sometimes I feel better if I POAS just in case even if it is early. Good luck and I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!
I've been in the bad habit of testing early (and multiple times within days) for the past year. I don't know how much money I've blown on tests, but it has to be a lot. I'm even a closet tester (I'll test without DH knowing). I know it's ridiculously obessive, but I can't help it. It's hard to wait when you want something SO badly.
on that note, is it bad to test at 2DPO? JK, lol! I have a loooooooooooooong 2ww ahead of me and I want to test on the 30th regardless bc that should be after I miss AF don't know if I'll hold out if you are saying some people get positives on 9dpo...good luck to us all seeing our two pink lines!
I felt just like you when I was around the same number of DPO's and it drove me NUTS - I couldn't stop thinking about it. Then my symptoms subsided a bit and my temps started to drop so I counted myself out until I got a temp spike this morning and an increased sensitivity to smells and a bit of loose poops (sorry TMI - but that's what happened last time I was preg. too). The signs look promising for you - I can't help you on how to push it to the back of your mind though. I think holding out on testing will help until you have a better chance of getting a BFP first time.
Emma, I read the other day that temps drop a bit during implantation and then go back up. So maybe that is what happened to you!
I made it through yesterday without testing! I ordered FRERs and prenatal vits from Amazon (along with some other stuff) and I am telling myself to wait until I get them to test. I have to go to the drug store for something else today though, so it's possible I'll cave. I'm going to try to not even go down that aisle, if I do, I'm done for.
