Due af 10th July and really feel pregnant so really hope its not my imagination.

Now all I've got to do is hold off form using those crap early testers.

four days and counting!!!!

Hi Babytime

Im testing 10th though I might hold on and wait til the saturday as I dont want to do FMU and go straight to work early.

Any symptoms?

babytime Sun 06-Jul-08 22:38:28

Yeah lots

Mainly funny taste in mouth, queasy feelings throughout the day, tingling nipples (they keep going stiff)

Test on the 10th with me I am trying so hard to not go buy an early test tomorrow.

I cant handle seeing a BFN - is this your first?

Have you any symptoms?

GYo Mon 07-Jul-08 08:50:18


Yes this is my first DC and first month of TTC so quite nervous.

Is this your first?

Your symptoms sound good! The biggest thing i've got is feeling hot, which is really odd for me. Particularly hot lower belly and boobs.

I need to get some tests in, but too worried it will make me test early if I do. I am really not convinced it will be bfp.

4 days.....

Its my third, I have two girls already 5 and 2 and real sweet hearts.

First child? - That is so exciting.

It was such an amzing experience first time - takes you and your partner on a mad journey, expecially when the babbie arrives.

I loved the fact we were approaching the unknown together.

Good luck.

This morning I thought to myself - shall I buy an early tester? BUt 4 days away really reduces the chances plus its better done in the morning.

How do you feel today?

GYo Mon 07-Jul-08 13:09:53

hi there btime.

Number 3- thats exciting grin Does that mean you feel more intune with the early symptoms? Must be good to kind of know what is in store. grin

Well done for holding off testing The next few days will fly by I bet! Will you test 1st thing thursday?

Not sure if I can POAS then rush to station. Might be all too much of a rush!

How were your previous pregnancies? Did you get bad morning sickness ?

Today im feeling very tired and still randomly hot. The kind of tired that means I could go to sleep with my head on my desk given a chance... BUT i had a really weird cold/virus thing last week, so could probably still be ill with that.

ho hum- tick tock of the clock....

GYo Mon 07-Jul-08 13:11:48

ooh another question, what testers will you use?

I saw that FR are on bogoff in boots so thought I'd get some of those. But not sure.

babytime Mon 07-Jul-08 17:53:27

I'm ashamed to say to say I gave in and bought a digital clear blue this afternoon and of course got a BFN! sad

waste of money.

People on here have said that they are not as sensitive as normal ones.

I guess I still could be pregnant because you are supposed to test first thing in the morning.

I'm so impatient!!!

Because this is my third I am guessing I would notice symptoms earlier. First pregnancy i did not know I was untik 8 weeks because I had a period. Second time I was convinces I was not because I had all the symptoms of a period coming and tested neg the day before with an early test!

Today I am now feeling doubtful because if the neg test and also because I have that bloated feeling and my tummy is churning like it does preperiod. Ah well roll on tThursday.

I have used all tests around and cant actually remember which ones gave the positive results. I have noticed alot of people on here talking about First Response so get one of those.

Thats funny you mentioned that cold - i had it too, really horrible.

GYo Tue 08-Jul-08 09:30:22

testing is an evil temptation isnt it! See if you can wait til thurs before testing again.!

Im not feeling hopeful but will test anyway.

Arghh the dreaded cold. I seem to have given it to most of my team :-S

Wish it was the w/e.....

babytime Tue 08-Jul-08 10:17:45

Morning how are you?

I am still feeling down because of yesterday and last night I had such strong period cramps (stronger than normal). I was convinced my period was about to start last night.

Nothing yet so fingers crossed.

I will not test until Thursday.


GYo Tue 08-Jul-08 11:30:01


Sorry to hear you are feeling down... hate this time of unknowing. I dont know how all these brave ladies do this month after month.

I am ok thanks, generally feeling down and tired and not sure why. Dont usually get that pre AF, am usually just irritable.

Fell on arse at tubestation (wet floor hmm) yesterday so feeling rather bruised on the lower back and arse! feels like AF onset... but no sign yet. (making fool of self might have impacted my mood!!- that and the p*ssing rain yesterday!)

Only 2 more days to wait. Im going to see if I can work at home thurs to allow me to test in private.... will see what the boss says...

babytime Tue 08-Jul-08 12:12:16

Hope your boss says yes then - good idea.

Your fall sounds painful! They should of had a wet floor sign displayed. Its such a shock when adults fall over because it hardly happens and painful too. Have you got any arica cream?

Right now the period feeling has started again in my lower tummy so i need to prepare for the worst.

i know what you mean, some of the women on here are so strong and I feel stupid complaining especially when I am lucky to have two beautiful girls already. But I have never felt this broody before, just hope that when I do get to hold another baby that I wont feel broody again grin. Dh said three is the MAX!

My mum did warn him I wanted a big family

GYo Tue 08-Jul-08 15:49:41

boss said no.

Well didnt quite say no but said I had to get formal HR approval for being a formal homeworker. sad

Been in roles managing my own time and teams of 15 for years now its being suggested that I cant manage my own time. Ridiculous.


Guess I will be testing Sat Am now....

babytime Tue 08-Jul-08 16:08:23

arrgh! - thats annoying!

basically making it more awkward for you...

ah well, can you hang out until Sat???

If you are due on Thursday like me you can test any time of that day like in the evening or Friday evening. You only need to use first wee of the day when testing before your period is due.

GYo Tue 08-Jul-08 16:49:12


Thanks for the info

Didnt know that re testing. That really helps. Might do it thursday evening.

Any progress at your end re AF?

babytime Tue 08-Jul-08 18:00:31

Most say on the pack you can, some will say morning. Clear blue and Fr can be any time if testing from teh day you are due but the levels are stronger in the morning.

GYo Tue 08-Jul-08 21:31:53

Thanks :-)

I now have tests in the house. Suddenly very tempted. but will hold out. Partially because Im too afraid of a BFN!


babytime Tue 08-Jul-08 21:35:54

i know how you feel

i have already looked my other clear blue in the cupboard today then put it back - amazing strength wink

Lets make a deal - Thursday it is!

How you feeling tonight.

I feel a little queasy with funny taste back and period cramps. I'm probably making myself feel like this?

Do you have preperiod feelings?

GYo Wed 09-Jul-08 08:48:41

Good Morning grin

Good for you for putting the test back in the cupboard.

How are you today? funny taste is supposed to be a good sign isnt it? but I know what you mean by making ourselves feel symptoms.

I am ok- not feeling particiarly pre-AFy. Usually get spotting 2 days or so before hand but thats not happened yet. Tirednes is main thing but thats kind of usual!!

Will you test first thing tomorrow?

babytime Wed 09-Jul-08 10:25:58


I gave in blush

I know... i know...


I have feeling really crap now.

But still hanging onto hope!!!

I keep reading here how people are getting negs with clear blue digitals and positives with first response so now I have to stop myself running out to buy one.

If i am not pregnant then can my mind really make me feel this queasy and with this taste in my mouth.

My friend who just gave birth has not idea about all this ttc and called me this morning talking about her lovely baby. I am genuinely really happy for her, she waited a long time but it does actually hurt. I will not tell her i am trying because she is so sweet she will feel bad for me.

Well I have to say your symptoms sound very positive so my money is on you now grin

Positive thinking - On the weekend we will be joining the Due March 2009 thread right?


GYo Wed 09-Jul-08 12:26:16

Hi- Sorry about your BFN. Could it be too early? Nothings definite til AF appear though…. wink Will you test again tomorrow?

That’s bad timing re your friend talking about her baby… Awful feeling I bet- no ones fault but it doesn’t stop you feeling pants about it. Maybe you can tell her you are TTC another time, so she doesn’t always talk about her lovely baby..

I’m amused (but thank you!) that you’re positive here re my symptoms. I actually LOL at my PC in a very quiet office ! I am a little bit tempted to test today but will try and wait. Im out seeing a friend later so that will distract me tonight….

So far today feeling light headed (quite usual if I don’t eat enough) and no spotting for AF. Probably all this speculating is what is delaying things!

babytime Wed 09-Jul-08 20:23:29

Maybe too early... I hope.

Glad to bring a smile where I can

Light headed is a very good sign, got that with both of my pregnancies.

Tonight I dont feel queasy or anything just feel my period brewing sad

This sounds disgusting but early I thought I felt my period starting and walked to the toilet very slowly, when I wiped myself I really expected to see blood but there was a small piece of jelly like stuff - yuck sorry blush

That is weird! Never had that before only stringy like stuff around ovulation.

You had that before?

babytime Wed 09-Jul-08 20:24:12

sorry should read "earlier"

GYo Wed 09-Jul-08 21:42:31

ooh that sounds strange. Not had that exactly but occasionally bit gelatinous before I get ewcm.

Am on a phone so hard to write. Will write more tomorrow. Still not tested.... I just feel odd. No af spotting though.
Getting nervous!

GYo Thu 10-Jul-08 13:24:07
