Who else is ttc? What are your stories/symptoms?

So my dh and I are now ttc again after my miss last November. My last af was on April 26th with about 30 day cycles. This month we had sex almost every day during my fertile time and I am really hoping it took! For the past week and a half I've had sore boobs, especially my nipples! And I never get sore boobs, not even with my miss last year. Also, been extremely tired like I can't get out of bed in the morning, been a little nauseous, dizzy a couple times, really bad acne on my face chest shoulders back and breasts, swollen feet and fingers, swollen abdomin, and it feels funny when I sleep on my stomach, like I have to flip over right away. The veins in my breasts are a little more noticeable and I per all the time!

All of these symptoms are pointing me to thinking I am pregnant, but I'm not due until Saturday so I have to wait. I took a test this morning but it was negative, thinking it may still be too early to test since I have four days til my expected af.

Anyone else in the same boat? What are your stories? I hope to create a great support group for all of us ttc'ers!! And hoping we all get out BFP's this month!!

I've been TTC for going on 3 months now! i'm on my Cd2. I never been pregnant. I have very regular AF's 29 days.
We had sex almost everyday this month also. And we got nothing but a shut down. Haha this morning we both up for work getting dressed, and he looked at me and said "Bae i'm really ready for another baby." (We don't have a child together he has a 3 yrs old son from his past) I know he don't think about it as much as me, but it just feels like i'm letting him down.

I don't know about you but it seems like ever since I've been TTC I have been gaining weight. I didn't think TTC would be so hard. I guess when you both want a baby its harder than when you don't want one!!!!

Are you doing ovulation test after you AF? also what I have been told by my RE is to have sex starting CD10 AF starting is CD1. so on CD10 and every other day until you get a +OPK test. then that day of + ovulation and the next night and then back to every other night. My RE said that if you have intercourse every single day of the month it lowers the sperm count. giving less chance of pregnancy not that it won't happen but much less of a chance.
