TTC for the new

Hi gals, i'm 22 and started a thread a couple of weeks ago saying i was thinking of TTC, i have now decided that me and DP are going to try as of 2 weeks ago. I have been off the pill for 6 months and was mid cycle when we started trying. I am now 5 days late but am really unsure of whats going on with my body.
I had terrible period pains (or at least what i think were period pains) yesterday and have really sore breats and feel so bloated n crap ( like i usually do when AF. I dont know if i'm late cos i'm wanting it sooooo much!

Unfortunatly Lottie those are the symptoms for both af and being preg - the only way you'll know is to do a test. At 5 days past your due date it should definatly show up on a test now.


Good luck lady!!!!!!

I think I saw your last thread actually - if it's you I'm thinking of - really chuffed to know you went ahead with it!!!

Good luck, hopefully it will be a BFP for you.

See thats what i thought i should do but knowing my luck i'll get the test and on the way back from the chemist and af will arrive.

yeah it was me!

sweetheart Thu 31-Mar-05 15:47:53

yes, just searched and it was you!!!

That would be typical for af to show up then - or even better about half an hour after you've actually tested - still at least if you don't get to use it you can keep it in the cupboard for next month

sweetheart Thu 31-Mar-05 15:49:06

Are your cycles normally really regular???

Have you had anything else you could think were pregnancy symptoms?!?!?!?

Lottielou Thu 31-Mar-05 15:50:28

maybe i shall grab one on the way home, i'll sit there for half and hour after i would do it and see if AF will show up!LOL

Kinda scared!

Lottielou Thu 31-Mar-05 15:54:13

Is it common then to have period like pains when you're pg?

sweetheart Thu 31-Mar-05 16:02:45

yeah it is common. They can either be implantation pains (where the fertilized egg is implanting into your womb) OR they can be sympathy pains as your body is expecting a period. You can get these sympathy type pains right throught your pregnancy I think - I know they are def quite common near the beginning.

sweetheart Thu 31-Mar-05 16:04:41

you'll be fine - def go and get one on your way home!!!!

If you think your a bit cared now wait till you see a +ve result!!!!!

It's a fantastic feeling

Sorry to be too incouraging btw, it's one of my worst habits - leading other mn'ers astray!!!!

Lottielou Thu 31-Mar-05 16:18:52

no that's great sweetheart thanks for being so positive!

I cant wait for the day when i am pg, i'll be for days and tell the world!

sweetheart Thu 31-Mar-05 16:34:10

glad to have been of service - if there's one thing I know well it's ttc!!!!!

Let me know how the testing goes!!!

Lottielou Thu 31-Mar-05 16:43:29

sweetheart Thu 31-Mar-05 16:48:48

If you are preg you should be due around Decmeber time - come over onto our anti-natal thread - it's a bit quiet so far and we need a few "chatters" like you to liven it up!!!

By the way - I don't get commission for recruiting!!!

The Dec thread is here
