Early Symptoms

I am currently in tww. (LMP 8/18) I would like to think of myself as 2w6d pregnant. However, it is too early to test. I really have no clue when I ovulated because I only had 1 day (9/4/2006) of EWCM. Very small amount. Yesterday I had headache, abdominal cramps with a stretching feeling, and was extremely tired! I don't so much feel that way today, maybe a small headache. What do yall think? I know that I should just wait 1 more week and test, but you know us tww'ers grasp at every "pregnancy feeling." Does anyone remember how they felt during the week before expected af?

I used to be just like you! I would be on the internet hoping I could find out anything and Pee on a stick constantly too early! I have had 2 m/c's since then and decided to take a break and not think about TTC anymore for now! Well, this month I relized I haven't had a period and I was feeling dizzy, nausea, and tired more. I took a test 2 weeks ago and I preggers again. Just try and relax and hopefully it will happen for you! I mean we weren't even trying, I had no clue what cycle day I was on, it was great! Just Breathe and wish real hard....but wait a little longer to test! Good Luck and I'll send some babydust your way*******************

I am apart of the tww. fertility friend said not to test until the 18 we. my o wasnt really pin pointed really so who know. i bd on all the wrong days. i want to test i actually did 5dpo so i think bfn like i was suppose to get bfp after only five days i talked my self into it thinking well maybe i o-d earlier than what i thought. hehehe;>  so im just waiting. i have af like symptoms but they went away. i had fluttering feeling a few days ago and that was it. and im not 20w prego so who knows. i have been tired but i also started to run again to clear my head. its funny how i try to think well this is a prego sign but in reality its the same is af why did she have to be so cruel. couldnt she have a different sign before she shows her ugly face... it would be nice when the little swimmers it the egg and a sign says hey we are in have a great nine months

I had my last af on 8/16.  I think I Oed last Friday.  I am tired too.  I am going to wait till the 18th to test.  I don't want any false postives.

Ugh - I'm the same way! I imagine every little thing MUST be a pg symptom - but unfortunately that and af symptoms go hand in hand. AF is almost done with her monthly visit (very light for once, so at least thats one good thing) but I still have a few crazy symptoms and keep thinking - hey, maybe it's still possible since I actually had a lite af with my first two (that ended in m/c). So I am successfully driving myself crazy trying to make myself think that there may still be a chance for me this month, even when I KNOW there's not. Welcome to the crazy world of ttc...  :o)  I hope you get a BFP this month and it's not just your mind playing tricks on you!!! :) Good Luck!

Funny- Our LMP was exactly the same day so...... We can keep our fingers crossed together. I'm pretty sure I don't have anything to worry about though. I haven't felt anything different than normal. Actually, I have felt way better than usual but that is because of these vitamins I have been taking. I wish you tons of luck though. I will keep you in my prayers.

The only thing I noticed in the 2WW was tiredness and breast tenderness.  Morning sickness didn't start until after I had missed my period.  I feel your pain because I am in the 2WW as of yesterday.  The doctor confirmed ovulation via ultrasound.  I started using preseed because I found that clomid dries up my CM.  Good luck to both of us!!!

I am also in the tww.  I am on cd 18.  I hate always thinking baout whether or not I am pregnant and if one little symptom could be it or not.  So I have told myself not to think about it until it is time to test or i miss a period.  I hope you get your BFP along with all of us in the tww.  We need some more babies stories.  Good luck.  I hope to post my BFP in 10 days!  We'll see though!

The only symptoms I had were my boobs hurt on the sides by my armpits and I was hungry every three hours!!  I got a positive 4 days before my missed period - if you go to twoweekwait.com  it isa pretty cool site.
