I'm not even late yet but I feel pregnant, you know? My boobs are so sore to touch, seem somewhat larger, I've had a few twingey stomach cramps and I have an on and off splitting head ache, that's the extent of any symptoms I may have and I'm not even sure if I'm just making them up.

Its 6 days before my period is due and I have one first response test which says it works up to 6 days before (although only 62% of the time, with the percentage getting better closer to when your period is due)

So basically after all that rambling do I sound pregnant? And should I take the test tomorrow even with there being a 40% chance it could give me a false negative?
Any advice or kind words will be much appreciated x

Symptoms of pregnancy are so similar to pmt - so frustrating! Also the first response although mega accurate and good at detecting early pregnancy don't always work the same for everyone as the amount of hcg varies from woman to woman. So it's really up to you - if you do it and its negative that doesn't mean your not pregnant and you will probably want to test again - everyday if your like me and a POAS addict. first response by the way are on buy one get one free at the moment in Boots - so pee away!! Good luck x

I got a bfn, kicking myself now that I couldn't just hold on a few more days as that was my last one and really don't want to waste any more money, only time will tell I guess x

The waiting is a killer and when you know you have the test just waiti g there it is hard not to use it! I have 6 days to go and it is frustrating! Melt us know how you get on : )

mattsmama Mon 17-Mar-14 15:44:23

Let us know not MELT! x

Ooh we're in exactly the same boat! Due on the 23rd right?
Are you as obsessed with symptom spotting as I am? Everything my body does or doesn't do is a sign that I must be pregnant, it's a nightmare!

mattsmama Mon 17-Mar-14 20:12:59

Ha ha yes due 23rd and I am symptom spotting all the time - I can't help it. Got sore boobs but I sometimes get them with pmt and every little twinge or ANYTHING I keep thinking ooh I wonder - it's awful. I want to be positive but then I don't want to build myself up because that disappointment when AF shows up is horrible. We can wait it out together! I have 2 first response tests in my drawer and its gonna take a lot of willpower not to use them for a couple of days! Fingers crossed for both of us! x

06097196 Mon 17-Mar-14 20:39:10

Ooh good, I have my fingers crossed for both of us. I've completely convinced myself I am, which is a recipe for disaster!
How long have you been ttc?x

mattsmama Mon 17-Mar-14 22:44:35

Since December so not too long but I have two DS already and they were pretty much conceived straight away on first try so was hoping for same thing to happen again. How about you? x

06097196 Mon 17-Mar-14 23:40:47

Aw that's not too bad
Well I'm not, me and my partner were a bit silly with contraception at the begining of the month, turns out I was ovulating at that time, and I've come to quite like the idea that I could be pregnant. It would be very lucky if I was after one month though!x

mattsmama Tue 18-Mar-14 16:23:50

It would be - hope you get the outcome you want! Time will tell for both of us in the next few days! x

06097196 Tue 18-Mar-14 20:30:47

Same to you! Keep me updated!x

mattsmama Thu 20-Mar-14 18:25:32

Hi! Have you caved in and tested? I tested this am and BFN : (
Still in with a chance though - all this waiting is driving me bonkers though!! x

06097196 Fri 21-Mar-14 11:56:06

I did last night! I'm so weak!
Same as you, bfn sad
I had mild period pains this morning and my boobs really kill so I feel thoroughly miserable, but we're not out of the game yet!!

mattsmama Fri 21-Mar-14 16:17:20

No we are definitely still in with a chance! Today I've been going back to my stick and keep willing a pink line to appear but nothing. Keep feeling like I am building myself up for a massive disappointment but can't help it. It's amazing how your mind works when you want something so much isn't it? x

06097196 Fri 21-Mar-14 17:52:38

So do I! It was a first response one so I feel like it should have detected something!
Wish I could just know nowsad let me know of any developments!x

mattsmama Fri 21-Mar-14 23:50:15

Will do ! X

06097196 Sat 22-Mar-14 13:46:02

Jut worked out my period should be due today, and I haven't had any period pain yet, feeling worryingly optimistic!x

msfatbooty Sat 22-Mar-14 15:42:22

Oooh girls, I've got my fingers crossed for you both!
I'm in the same situation - first month we've tried and AF due next Sunday(30th). Can't think of anything else. Also symptom spotting - although anything I notice is probably imaginary right now. aaargh!

06097196 Sat 22-Mar-14 19:02:51

Ooh fingers crossed for you too!
Just had a tiny tiny tiny bit of blood when I wiped (sorry tmi!!!) it was pink not red, what the hell is all this about!?x
Have you got any DC already?x

mattsmama Sat 22-Mar-14 19:06:39

I am out ladies -AF arrived half hour ago. Well pissed off : (

Fingers crossed for you though - do keep us posted xx

06097196 Sat 22-Mar-14 19:10:16

Oh no, so gutted for you, my stomach genuinely dropped when I read that, don't lose hope xxx

mattsmama Mon 24-Mar-14 22:44:13

Hi! Just wondered how you got on this weekend? Hope you had better luck than me x

06097196 Tue 25-Mar-14 07:13:00

I'm 3 days late now and no sign of AF, but I got another bfn yesterday so I'm not feeling too hopefully x

mattsmama Tue 25-Mar-14 16:48:10

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. Everyone is different - I know my sister didn't gt a BFP until she was a week late. It's not over till AF arrives x
