I THINK I'm PREGNANT!

OK, so my husband and I have been trying to conceive for a few months now. I chart my temperature, take ovulation predictors (OPKs,) use Preseed (a sperm-friendly lube,) and Instead cups (to keep the "boys" up where they need to be.) So this is the first month I think I might be pregnant. I'm having all kinds of different symptoms. I have a "full" feel tummy, light cramping/twinges, and a watery mouth (not really like "I'm about to throw up" watery, just watery - it's weird!) I have like 25 home pregnancy tests (HPTs,) but it's WAY to early to use one. I'm only 9 days past ovulation, and I know I really shouldn't test for another few days. ACH - this wait is driving me CRAZY! So, what do you think? I'm I pregnant? I'm I making this all up in my head? ALso, any suggestions for making this wait go by quicker?!

It could be that you are trying so hard that you think you are pregnant. I'm not trying to ruin your hope, but I have had that happen to me a couple of months...If I am one day late on my period, I will start hoping, and have even ran out and bought a home PT, just to be let down when it's negative...There are some home pregnancy tests that can detect pregnancy hormones up to fix days before you are scheduled to start your next period...So you could test sooner if you had one of those! Good luck!!

I've definately considered that. ALTHOUGH, I've never actually felt like I could be before any other month. Only a few more days......

I just knew with both of my pregnancies. My first I had dreams about my period being late and found out before I even missed a period. My 2nd we were trying...not too hard but tried once and boom. I just knew it felt different and just knew. Just try not to concentrate on the wait. Sometimes you can find out pretty early too though. I found out a week before my first missed period on both of mine. My HCG levels or whatever always run way high I guess cause I have big babies. Good luck. Please keep me posted I am due this week so talk about a wait that never ends!

I have heard of breat tenderness being one of the first signs. Some women even say that it was a different feeling when they conceived, they could just tell. Good luck, and if you are "Congratulations"!!!
