Trying not to symptom spot..

But here I am, feeling like I'm going crazy!

Yesterday I was 5 DPO, helping my MIL/FIL out in there yard and I kept getting dizzy, figuring I just needed to drink more water (but I never get dizzy), Spotted yesterday, and this morning woke up at 4am to pee and was quite hungry, needless to say I couldn't fall back asleep. So, sitting here at 5am, drinking my coffee and needed to vent. For some reason, this TWW just seems to last forever.

How is everyone else doing??

I'm either 3 or 4 DPO (FF and I disagree) And felt a bit cranky yesterday but that could be related to any number of things. Now that I know I o'd and have done everything I can, I'm hoping to not think about it as much - or at least obsess a bit less.

Your symptoms sound positive though! The only early symptoms I've had with my other pregnancies was a bit of cramping. Good luck!!

I had AF type cramping all day yesterday. My previous pregnancy I felt like I had a UTI during implantation, accompanied by spotting. So who knows. God Luck trying not to obsess : ) Seems to be easier said then done.

I think that's why I haven't been on so much. Lol. Seeing everyone's 'symptoms' makes me wonder

It's so stressful. I'm trying to avoid thinking about it.
I've been having some funny temps, moody and dizzy.

Hi Ladies. Currently 9 DPIUI (CD 25) and having a REALLY REALLY hard time not obsessing in this TWW. My symptoms have included cramping on and off since the day after IUI. Moodiness (feel bad for my DH!!), extra thirsty, bloating, gas. I'm not extra tired (I'm usually always tired), and no sore boobs. I do have some weird things going on, like my hair has been falling more than usual. ALso, I have these small bumps along my hairline. I of course googled both, and other women have has the same things during pregnancy. However, I think you can turn anything into a pregnancy symptom!!! Smile

Sending my thoughts and baby dust to all!!!!

It's crazy isn't it? Everything can be a pregnancy symptom or just a symptom of ovulating or PMS. I never cramp before my period starts though, so I'll take it as a good sign for now.

Fingers crossed for you!!!
I usually don't cramp before AF either (usually don't have cramps until CD 2-3) so any little twinge or feeling is good right now for me Smile
I actually just had this weird pain on the left side, kinda felt like my normal O pains, that lasted for awhile. but being CD 25, AND since my RE did bloodwork on Friday that confirmed I already O'd, I'm taking it as a good sign!!! Here's to hoping for a BFP soon!!!

Well I tested this morning, and BFN Sad BUT only 10 dpiui and IF I did only implant yesterday, obviously it could be another few days to even get a + reading. My cycles are usually really short - 24-26, however the past two cycles I've been on 50 mg clomid in preparation for IUI. Last cycle was 27 days, with spotting on day 27. Today is day 26 and NO signs of AF! I did have a dream last night that I got my BFP - hopefully it comes true!!!!!

How about you, when do you plan on testing?

I'll probably test on Thursday (10DPO) or Friday (11DPO). Depending how I'm feeling, from 5-7DPO(today) I've had really bad AF cramps and today started lower back pain, and I'm more tired than usual. I usually have a pretty uneventful month with no cramping/pain before AF and always a regular 28 day cycle.

Fingers crossed for you!! Everything sounds very promising!

I'm totally symptom spotting today. Having some crampy feelings on day 22 (7DPO), which is way to early for AF cramps...right? I'm totally jinxing any chances of actually getting a BFP this cycle by even considering that this could be a good sign...just saying Smile

I had those same cramps, mainly 5-7DPO and lower back pain, but no pain or cramping since. I'm glad I'm not alone with the symptom spotting.

Sorry to be a downer. That's what happened last cycle and I didn't get a bfp Sad i thought it was my period, and then it was gone, then my real af showed up

I took a blood test to confirm and it was BFN
I'm really hoping it's the opposite for you julie and Kix (what's your name)
