Dreaded PMS

mrs62610 posted:
Well "the girls" hurt now. It started last night just before bed. They are a little more sore this morning but not as bad as they usually are. I also woke up in the middle of the night with some cramping that only lasted a minute or so. I know not to count myself out until I test, but I'm still figuring this cycle is probably gonna turn out like the previous ones. I have decided though that we are going to do one more round this year before we take a break, then start back up January/February.

Good Idea not to count yourself out until you test. All i can wish you is that it works for you even if you think this cycle will probably turn around like the previous ones. I used to have PMS symptoms with Clomid, sore boobs... But this cycle i'm feeling nothing and i'm also scarred it didn't work. I have one more week to go and find out what the verdict is. Ughhhh.
Good luck.

Thanks! I didn't have ANY PMS symptoms until last night and I thought that was great, but now I'm not sure what to think. I texted DH and he is going to pick some HPT's for me. I have one at home but will need more for next cycle, or on the off chance I do get a BFP, I will want to use another test! Haha

Feeling nothing could be good! Are you going for a blood test or testing at home?

This is funny. Now i'm having lower back pain, i keep moving on my chair at work trying to find the best position...
Well let's see you never know with those symptoms. They can mean anything BFP or BFN, i've learned not to read into them even if it is almost impossible.
The RE office told me to test at home and call them with the result. I'm supposed to test 10/24.

My boobs hurt SOOOO bad when I was pregnant/before I knew it was a BFP. I practically beheaded DH whenever he reached for them. So, tender breasts aren't necessarily a bad sign. Best of luck! Let us know how it goes!

mrs62610 replied to maragayle's response:
I know it can be good too but I have them EVERY 2ww, it just depends on the day. Sometimes it starts 3DPO and one time it was 13DPO! I was crushed when they finally started hurting because I was telling DH, "YAY, my boobs don't hurt, no PMS!!!" Also, I figure some say they don't start hurting until after a BFP so I thought how could I be so lucky to have symptoms so early?!

I understand it could still go either way but since I'm so close to testing I guess I'm just subconsciously trying to prepare myself for a BFN. What DPO did yours start hurting?

I wouldn't count it out yet. Like Mara said, boobs hurting and occassional cramping could be a good sign, you never know! How many DPO are you? When are you going to take a HPT?

I'm 12DPO today, I go for a blood test Thursday but I was entertaining the idea of doing a HPT tomorrow morning.

I would. But then again, I love POAS. And if it was a BFN, I'd rather find out at home then on the phone with someone else.
I will be hoping and praying for you.

I will test in the morning, I even set out the test so I don't forget. I used to love POAS but I am beginning to think I will never see that second line, so I almost dread it nowadays. Thanks for the prayers, I have alot of non-TTC related stress right now and I could use some prayers. I'll let you know how the test comes out in the morning.

As I suspected, BFN. I'm considering stopping the progesterone today so I don't have to wait as long for AF. We'll see.....

Sorry to hear!

I'm even more of an advocate for waiting to test since we got our BFP earlier this month. My first test was CD28 and was a BFN. My second test was CD35 and that's when I finally saw the BFP. Testing too early gives inaccurate results. Maybe there's still hope for Thursday?

RE breast tenderness. You'll know when it's from pregnancy. I get tenderness when AF is coming on, too, but it was a million times worse when it was a pregnancy symptom. At least for me, they were completely different pains.
