Testing Sunday - And NOT before!

(80 Posts)

Hello, any one else testing this Sunday.
I'm determined this time not to test early.
Have 2dc so ttc dc3.
Symptoms I'm imagining so far include...
funny taste in mouth
feeling sick after coffee
very tired (not very out of character for me!)

amazingmumof6 Thu 25-Apr-13 03:00:57

I love these threads! smile

not pg or in "danger of" , but I'm happy to offer encouragement and hopefully congratulate you soon!

your symptoms are suggesting that you are pg!
things used to taste funny to me too - peppers with the aroma motor oil and tap water with a delectable bouquet of rubber

so how can I help to keep you strong till Sunday? and if you don't mind me asking, why Sunday?

Hi amazingmumof6

AF is due Saturday (night usually) so I'm trying to wait it out. Last cycle I did 3 tests all before af due!

I'm an expert at imaginary symptoms though so I wont get the bunting out just yet. wink

Todays symptoms to add to the list are a funny, stitch like pain in my side.

So do you really have 6?

Oh and peeing all the time and wanting to eat pretty much everything in sight! grin

amazingmumof6 Thu 25-Apr-13 18:47:54

yep, 5 boys and baby girl! and I want more, but DH doesn't, so not TTC. I gotta convince him. I just don't feel done.

but back to you, peeing and hungry as a wolf.... seriously, you can't imagine all of that!

I had stitch like pain too - I'm voting it's the fertilized egg travelling down the Fallopian tube to get nice and cozy..

what time are you going to POS on Sunday? I'm out between 8.15 and 9.45 (church) so if you want me to root for you "live" you have to wait for me! grin

Of course I don't expect you to, but I'm only half joking, I'd love to! what is wrong with me? seriously, I never understand how I can get so "involved" and excited, I don't even know you! what is going on?

keep me posted. not long now.

oh and try and not eat your kids however hungry you are (surely they are yummy!) - cannibalism is frowned upon! grin grin

suedehead Thu 25-Apr-13 19:40:29

Hi lentils etc
Yep, I'm with you! Have also vowed not to POAS until Sunday. AF was due on Tuesday. POAS on Monday - negative. POAS today (Thursday) - negative, even though am 2 days late! Wasn't going to but have spent half of yesterday and the entire day today feeling really sick (this never happens to me!). By Sunday, I'll be 6 days late, so hopefully something will show up if AF hasn't arrived by then...
I really have a strong feeling that I am pregnant this time. Have been symptom-spotting ago-go. This is the first time since we started TTC (November) that I've actually been late, so fingers crossed...

Elektra83 Thu 25-Apr-13 21:30:31

suedehead I'm the same as you, due on Tuesday but nothing has turned up! Haven't tested yet, mostly because I don't think I can be pg now! Will probably test tomorrow if AF hasn't shown up.

amazingmumof6 Thu 25-Apr-13 22:47:55

girls/ladies, I think you should do synchronized POAS on Sunday 10am - have I just invented a new Olympic sport? (first stick turning blue wins?) grin

The urge to make babies is strong isn't it! Wow amazing 6!!!
I'm not sure what time exactly - it will depend when i can get a bit of piece from dh and dc! i'll definately let you know.
Suede and electra that sounds really promising!! Here's hoping for your bfps!

Tummy still feels stitch like tonight. Fingers crossed.

Peace obviously. Is stupidity and an inability to write on a phone a symptom? grin

amazingmumof6 Thu 25-Apr-13 23:08:05

yes, it is a symptom - oh dear, DH must be pg then! grin

LittlePeaPod Sat 27-Apr-13 13:29:06

Good luck for Sunday.. Wishing you all a BFP. My AF is due on Tuesday but I have vowed if we are lucky and it doesn't arrive I won't be testing till a week on Sunday. although I am weak and probably wouldn't last .

I too am imagining symptoms, frequent wees, eating loads, bit emotional (not unusual before AF-- and my favourite felt sickly all day Friday must admit I had two glasses of red and a glass of white the night before so probably a hangover . We mc in March so hopeful for a sticky pea next time..

extracrunchy Sun 28-Apr-13 07:09:25

I was due yesterday. Sat on my hands till just now. BFP!!!!!!

LittlePeaPod Sun 28-Apr-13 07:51:08

Congratulations Extra Crunchy thanks grin

suedehead Sun 28-Apr-13 08:36:40

Wowzer! Well done crunchy!
I managed to stay brave. POAS first thing this morning. Still BFN! I'm now 6 days late, waves of nausea (for afternoons, if not most of the day), sore (and bigger, I think!) boobs. Really not sure what's going on. Am going to test again mid-week I think. This is driving me crazy! (and costing me a fortune...!)

Ooh good luck everyone! <shamelessly marks place>

Ooh, I've just found this thread! I'm due today, I'm in bed whilst DH is downstairs with DS and need to POAS before I go down.

Congrats crunchy smile

jetstar Sun 28-Apr-13 08:50:48

Come on then........pee grin

UnderwaterBasketWeaving Sun 28-Apr-13 08:52:19

Oh, perfect! A multiple POAS thread!

Good luck to you all x

Oh my god. Just poas and bfp. I'm in total shock and shaking like a leaf. grin shock

extracrunchy Sun 28-Apr-13 08:52:43

Suedehead I didn't get a BFP with DS till I was 10 days late, and even then it was a blood test and didn't show on HPT, so don't despair! Maybe book for a blood test tomorrow??

Fingers crossed.

Congratulations crunchy. smile

UnderwaterBasketWeaving Sun 28-Apr-13 08:54:24

Congratulations lentils & crunchy!

Congratulations lovelylentils. thanks
Brilliant news. smile

LittlePeaPod Sun 28-Apr-13 08:54:41

Good luck Pottering and let us know how you get on.... I have to wait till next Sunady. Due Tuesday, s won't last till Sunday if (fingers crossed) late.

LittlePeaPod Sun 28-Apr-13 08:55:19

Congratulations Lentils thanks

Congrats lentils and crunchy!

I've checked. BFN for me this month. Good luck everyone else!

Congrats lentils! (Just seen as didn't refresh before posting!)

Figgygal Sun 28-Apr-13 09:07:59

I tested friday and got bfp am still in shock over it and dh away all weekend so havnt even been able to tell him. Very unplanned DC2 for me.

Congrats to you anyway

LittlePeaPod Sun 28-Apr-13 09:17:08

Congratulations Figgy and Pottering sorry to hear this month hasn't delivered good news. But here is me sending you lots of baby making magic for next month

mrscookie78 Sun 28-Apr-13 09:18:58

congrats lentil, pottering and figgy. im due today, its going to be a long day smile

mrscookie78 Sun 28-Apr-13 09:19:57

sorry, I read the last message wrong pottering. hopefully next month! smile

HotCrossPun Sun 28-Apr-13 09:26:11

3 BFP so far, maybe this is a lucky thread?

I'd like to join in. BFN for me this morning. I haven't had a period since my implant was taken out 5 weeks ago, so I don't know where I am in my cycle.

This week I've had:

The worlds sorest boobs
a funny pain in my side that I've never had before
very emotional
an insatiable appetite

See you all next Sunday - good luck everyone grin

Ah yes, I only stopped bfeeding DS in march and this has been the first month my cycle has settled to anything like checking so there will be time to come smile

extracrunchy Sun 28-Apr-13 11:25:15

Figgy - me too! DH away till tonight. I am going crazy not being able to tell him!

DulcetMoans Sun 28-Apr-13 12:58:19

Yay for the BFPs! Shows the value in waiting as well. I'm with littlepeapod, due next Saturday so trying to hold off and test next Sunday. I was doing really well until this morning and caved this morning, six days early. BFN of course, such an idiot. That's it now until Sunday or AF. Just need to ignore 'symptoms' now.

Congrats to the newly confirmed pregnant ladies!

amazingmumof6 Sun 28-Apr-13 15:22:46

hot cross - funny side pain could be the fertilized egg travelling down the fallopian tube.

I only had a BFP with DS2 when I was 3 weeks late!!!!
I knew I ovulated later than usual in that cycle and everything was thrown off "schedule" by 2 weeks.
scan proved it, but they didn't change the due date, so EDD remained based on last AF.
he was born 2 weeks after EDD - just proves that mother knows best!

so there's hope yet to all of you with BFN, my advice is to leave at least 3 days between POAS.

congrats to all the BFPs, very happy for you all

(what's emoticon for incredibly broody?)

suedehead Sun 28-Apr-13 16:07:54

Woop lentils!
Thanks crunchy - think will wait until am off work on Thurs to contact the Dr. Blood test could be a good idea. 10 days late, eh? Bet that also cost you a fortune ;-)
I think I was about 6 days late with DC1 when I got a BFP, and then the due date was pushed back at a scan, so I think I must have ovulated later. With a bit of luck, that's what's happened this time!
Good luck for everyone else testing this week!

mrscookie78 Sun 28-Apr-13 17:35:57

Ok well I poas and it was bfn, af is due today hopefully. I just want to know either way. the problem is with my dc I tested 4 days before my af and got a positive. But I have read so much that you can still get bfn when you are in fact pregnant. shock

AF not shown up for me today despite the BFN - I'm going to sit it out til Wednesday and then see so I say but I bet I cave if it doesn't appear

mrscookie78 Sun 28-Apr-13 19:04:18

That makes two of us pottering smile

HotCrossPun Mon 29-Apr-13 20:39:02

amazingmumof6 Ooooh, I hope so!

I'm going to hold off testing until next Sunday. Hopefully we can beat this weeks results and get 4 or 5 BFP's grin

LittlePeaPod Tue 30-Apr-13 06:06:05

Really nervous. AF is due today...... I know deep down probably not pregnant but still keeping everything crossed.... (writes whilst feeling really nervous). smile

LittlePeaPod Tue 30-Apr-13 06:06:51

Here here Hotcross. Wishing all of us the best of baby making dust.. smile

LittlePeaPod Tue 30-Apr-13 17:38:35

OMG... BFP... I cracked and did the test today... Got a BFP... I can't believe it, in shock, really excited but really scared too as mc in March 2013.

This will be our first if all goes well. Fingers crossed?.. grin

mrscookie78 Tue 30-Apr-13 19:35:54

Congratulations pea. well done you smile . im day 37 now. must not poas' s grin

HotCrossPun Tue 30-Apr-13 19:45:36

Oooooh LittlePeaPod that's amazing!

Massive Congratulations thanks

LittlePeaPod Tue 30-Apr-13 21:15:28

Thank you MrsCookie and HotCross.. Still in shock...

Wishing you both get BFP soon.

HotCross - I noticed you got a funny pain in your side. I had a burning pain like feeling in my right side about 2 weeks ago...

mrscookie me too! Sitting ony hands...

mrscookie78 Wed 01-May-13 12:38:22

Well I got another bfn, really should find something to pass the time whilst im waiting smile

I've tested tonight and got a BFN too. But no AF either. Who knows smile

suedehead Wed 01-May-13 19:11:06

Harumph. A glut of BFNs, eh? Are we an impatient bunch or just with crazy cycles...? Keep trying, I reckon (the JSing, not the POASing!)
Well, I'm now 8 days late. Have decided to test tomorrow, then may think about calling the doctor if there's still nothing. V proud of myself for sticking to my new mantra of "Testing Thursday - And NOT before!"

Good luck, ladies...

We're not impatient suede (well, we might be...) we're a hangover from the thread of people who were meant to be testing last Sunday!

Artisticme Wed 01-May-13 21:45:29

Oooh I love this thread!!! I'm also testing Sundaysmile is there still anyone waiting until then? Haha POS on Monday and got bfn but not due AF until Friday so trying to hold off! Motivation neededsmile) xXx

suedehead Thu 02-May-13 09:05:18

Wowzer. Well, I stuck it out, and have got my BFP! I guess 9 days late was definitely enough waiting.
Fingers crossed for a few more BFPs from this very patient thread!
Good luck, ladies... x

LittlePeaPod Thu 02-May-13 10:27:28

Suede - Yeeeeaaaaa and congratulations.. flowers Does that make the total this week 5 so far?

Good luck to everyone else waiting and due to test soon.. FX

I love this thread. So positive.. smile

suedehead Thu 02-May-13 18:05:22

Thanks Pod
5 in a week! I like it!
Fingers crossed indeed.... x

Woo hoo smile!!

I'm now 5 days late and a BFN from me again today. I'm waiting until Monday and then going to stop POAS for this month or however long it goes on for

suedehead Thu 02-May-13 21:22:31

Urgh, Pottering
I feel your pain. It's weird, isn't it? I spent so long wondering whether I could just have skipped a period? Does that ever happen?
Well, good luck for Monday.... x

I don't know! DH keeps giving me slightly odd looks too - not helped because he's been asked to go on a school trip abroad the last week if the Christmas term which will be absolutely fine if I'm not pregnant but not if I am and he still doesn't know what to say to them!

suedehead Thu 02-May-13 21:33:42

What a nightmare! Well, I'm rooting for you for Monday. Let us know how you get on! x

mrscookie78 Fri 03-May-13 12:26:43

congratulations suede grin . ive said im not peeing on any more sticks. but it is hard to refrain pottering!!

AF started today - I'm bowing out this month ladies! Congratulations to you all

mrscookie78 Fri 03-May-13 14:29:34

sorry to hear that pottering, least you can count today as day 1 and start again. I may still be here in a few weeks grin

mrscookie78 Fri 03-May-13 14:30:02

so whos left with me? wink

suedehead Fri 03-May-13 17:35:01

Gutted for you Pottering :-(
At least DH can get that school trip out of the way and you can gear up for Feb.
Good luck for the rest of TTC x

Artisticme Fri 03-May-13 17:50:49

In still holding out mrscookie! Determined to wait till Sunday stillsmile x

LittlePeaPod Fri 03-May-13 18:29:36

Just checking in to see how everyone is getting on.

Pottering - Sorry it's not this month But at least you know where your cycle is now. Good luck for next month..

MrsCookie/Articme - will keep popping back to see how you are getting on. FX it will be good news. smile

Artisticme Fri 03-May-13 18:46:10

Thanks littlepeapodsmile will keep you updated! Xx

mrscookie78 Fri 03-May-13 19:33:30

thanks pea. grin I caved and did a poynd shop hcg stick. I guess at 7 days late and a pile of bfn's I just have a long cycle this month. im more jealous of people having af's than anything else. I can't get this off my mind, its ridiculous smile . im starting yoga in a couple of weeks and going to see a friend about reflexology about relaxing and a chat about fertility. I do worry that my periods have just gone or something to do with my section. its mad what goes through your head when your in limbo. its nice to hear everone else's news though grin

DulcetMoans Fri 03-May-13 23:02:11

Didn't even make it to Sunday, AF two days early. Better than waiting but not as good as a BFP!

mrscookie78 Sat 04-May-13 18:10:15

Af came today, very relieved that it came. Did wonder where it had got to grin

Ah, sorry mrscookie - onwards and upwards, eh?

mrscookie78 Sat 04-May-13 19:06:29

Very kind of you pottering but i squealed with delight when I found out. Yes exactly, looking forward to trying this month now grin sounds like we are not far off with our cycles!

I'll look put for you next month smile

mrscookie78 Sun 05-May-13 08:20:12

Im on the turning into a nutcase trying for number 2 thread. grin

Artisticme Sun 05-May-13 08:42:19

BNF for me too today ladies!! See you all next monthsmile xx

LittlePeaPod Sun 05-May-13 09:33:45

Morning ladies just checking in to see if we have any updates.

MrsCookie sorry to hear this was not the month for you. Great news that you know your first day now and sending you lots if baby making good luck for this coming month.

Aristicme good luck for the coming month

HotCrossPun Sun 05-May-13 17:29:11

BFN for me too. On the plus side AF has made an appearance, first time since I've had my implant out, so at least now I know where I am in my cycle so I can bonk plan accordingly. grin

Best of luck everyone.
