Do the things that you enjoy doing. I am a concert person. I have wanted to see a certain band for like 8 years and I decided that if I was pregnant than I definitely wanted to go see them because I knew it would be a long time before I would ever get the opportunity to do it. So Friday I trucked 4.5 hours to Ft Worth to see them. I am glad I did. Experience of a life time! Enjoy the time. Nothing soothes that 2 week wait though. Arg! It is so aggrevating!

I feel the same way. I am due to go to my doctor's tomorrow for a test (quantitive blood test) but I've been having symptoms. I'm not sure if it is my head.... I really hope not. We are in our 10 month of trying so I hope that something went well.

Wanting it so badly does mess with you - I thought I was pregnant this month and, well, I'm not.  My BB's are enlarged and tender (which never happens with my nornal cycle) so it got my hopes up.  I thought that was a more reliable sign than "feeling  sick"...which I have been as well........but I have a cold now, too, which could explain away that symptom.

AF arriving today - now that has clinched the deal :-(

On the bright side...I can now start actually taking things for my cold - I wasn't before, thinking I was pg.  

On a side note...I was 6 weeks pg. before I found out I was pg. with my DS - so I don't believe that all women have this special gifr!

Good luck to you....and, of course, lots of BABYDUST :-)

i'm actually starting to....wonder. it wasn't until dh said something the other day. i LOVE chinese food. well normally i do. our 1 yr anniversary is coming up and he suggested hey lets go get chinese...i said....nah i'm not really wanting chinese. he looks at me and goes omg you're pregnant! i laughed. i mean i can't be! i mean yeah i know it IS possible we do have unprotected sex but i have mirena. so i KNOW it's not entirely impossible but...i'm so paranoid now! my lmp was 2 weeks ago so i know i shouldn't be having symptoms yet. but what if my lmp wasn't really an lmp but implantation! (i didn't have implantation with the twins so i have NO idea what it looks like how heavy, light, color nothing. no clue)

am i paranoid? or could it be possible? it wouldn't be horrible if i was. we knew that there was that 1% chance i could end up pregnant but we arn't really sweating it if i am. i'm just.....i don't know. lol. i should just go get a test but i just dont know.

personally, yes i do know when i'm pregnant. i have a feeling very early on that i've conceived, even before any symptoms would show. yes it can happen, but it can also happen that women convince themselves they're pregnant due to certain symptoms and then it turns out they're not. hpts are the way to know 100% one way or the other.
