Ok so here I am again even after promising myself that I would be patient this time and not get ahead of myself lol...but here goes : I started P on April 6th (normal P) and ovulated on the 18th (during the night going into the 19th) My fiancee and I had sex on the 14th and the 17th and since then I was being a good girl and waiting it out...til this morning...I work nights and Sundays are my 1st night @ work so this morning when I got home from bringing my son to daycare I cheated and tested and of course it was neg. IF we did in fact conceive I would be no more than 3 weeks (medical DD)/1 week pregnant...my question is has anyone gotten a positive before next P? If so how many days before?? Let me know how far along you were when you got a positive on a HPT :)

Girl, How you not going to be patient when you was the one keeping me strong. LOL.... Its ok though. I have read on here though people being able to see and know with in the first week or two... but it all depends on your body and HCG levels which is why many say to wait till after the missed period. Don't get discourged. I myself bout a test...but i stuck it in the closet. I was tempted to do it thursday b/c that would be 5 days before missed period but imma stay strong. LOL I do throw up twice yesterday but once was b/c i was choking on my own swallow and the other...idk... I guess my hot carmel drink i drank wasn't ok for my stomach and i should of ate something first... Praying for baby dust for the both of us :)

I know what you mean I check this site when I get home from work in the mornings and then again throughout the day...always reading everyone elses stories to try & find that one story that ressembles mine...trying to get hope form these stories but in actuality should just stop thinking so much about it & get on w/ life until theres reason to pause on this subject...but...not easily done :) I remember a few months ago I felt like this other blogger I write to who says (she just knows shes pregnant even though shes still a week away from next P) just like us...but I remember feeling that way a few months ago..had the sore breasts, nausea, headaches, felt like I was stretching inside...& ended up getting P on day 31 of my cycle and it was a reg. P...it discourages you then even more than just finding out youre not cause you become doubtful of your own competence in being able to distinguish symptoms that your own body is expressing...wow what a rollercoaster ride we women put ourselves through :) :)

On a brighter note there will be aprox. 1 week left tomorrow for my next expected P...Im supposed to have a cycle of 29 days this month so we'll see...May 4th or after...baby dust, baby dust, baby dust to both of us LOL later ;)

I know it.... this evening i been having doubts because my back is getting a little achy and my period is suppose to be here the 3rd i believe.. I am tempted to go ahead and take a test in the morning so i can go ahead and set myself up for disapointment and be ok come next week.....actually i think that is what i'll do... I need to start engaging myself back into my studies and possibly moving and whatever else my plans are that i have been lining up. Regardless of this. I want 2 let you know , thank you for being a sounding board as well support for me. You've been a blessing these past few days.
Thank you Ma'am

GL to you on that test and plz do let me know...I can understand you wanting to do it in hopes that it will soothe your mind either way but let me say that even if you get a neg. you'll still be wondering til next week anyhow...until you start your P you will still have that inkling in the back of your mind saying : maybe it was just too early to have tested..I know cause Ive been there before and am here again...but I'll gladly wait for you to join me here in the morning :) Have a good night C you tomorrow xoxo

Morning,
So i did it. I set myself up for failure.... and it worked... the test said neg. To make it worse... All night....literally (all night) I kept dreaming i would take a test and it was positive and each time in the dream i would go through the emotions of excitement. and even when i would wake up (ump teen times) I would have the dream again, and again , and again.... So. I'm excepting the neg. I'm embracing it. I am sad about it. But i will be ok. and Until i miss a period then there is no more fretting or anything... I've loss to much energy over this and need to just move on with my life and get back focussed on some things.

Hello!

Wow! I love this conversation. We all are waiting for the pregnancy dust (baby dust) and it feels great to know you are not alone!

I did receive my "P" this month after being 4 days LATE! I have never-EVER been late in my life and I have always started my cycle between day 28 - 29. NOW- I am like day 31 or something so I guess I will stay prayful and hope this month will work.

Again- it is on God's plan and I have to keep telling myself that and thanking him in ADVANCE!! :)
