False symptoms or to early to tell?

So I’m 12 days past ovulation with a LP of 16 days on average so AF is due on Tuesday, for the last few days I have been having waves of sickness come over me, food is tasting strange and I have been getting cramps.

This morning I had convinced myself that it must be because I am pregnant and rushed out to get a pregnancy test, the “First Response” range say they will tell you 6 days before the day of your missed period but the % of it being positive if you are preggo is less. I was so excited I really thought it was going to come up with those two pink lines so when I got my negative reading I felt soooooo deflated, who knows maybe its to early to tell, maybe I just have some kind of ill/bug or maybe I’m making it all up because I want it to be true.

I have told myself that I am going to wait for AF to be late then test the next day but as I brought 3 sticks to pee on I am sure I will get temped before that!

It’s only my first cycle #1 and everything is all very new and exciting, I cant stop looking at baby clothes, baby everything in fact! it’s on my mind from the minute I wake up to the minute I fall to sleep! I wonder if it gets easier to think about other things, I feel like I will get consumed with baby fever before the year is through.

I would love to here your thought, feelings and stories on TTC, even if to stop me feeling so looney lol!


My needle phobia and TTC

Today I have mostly been thinking about being pregnant!

what if I am?

Now don’t get me wrong I would be ecstatic if I am, in fact I did a pregnancy test this morning, why I don’t know as it’s far to early but this exciting first 2ww is killing me! But the thoughts of being pregnant are not what’s on the fore front of my mind today, I’m needle phobic, and I mean phobic not scared, I’m petrified.

what will I do when I have to have the blood tests?

I have been researching hypnotherapy, has anybody tried it before? I don’t know how else I am going to get over it, at the moment I use Valium before I have a needle but I’m pretty sure during pregnancy you can’t take it? Or at least there can be consequences for example if you take it in your first trimester you can give you baby a cleft palate and other birth defects, however if you come near me with a needle my blood pressure goes sky high a have a panic attack, I can’t breath and I’m generally a state, I can Imagine this is not great for a baby either!

I have been reading some forums on woman who take Valium whilst pregnant and they were being called monsters and other nasty thing, I couldn’t believe it, these woman were not taking Valium for fun! it’s not a recreational drug they are using it to treat a problem! I could believe how cruel other mothers were being.

I don’t know what I am going to do the day I do get pregnant, I would really like to get through the injections and blood tests with out the help of medication but I can’t say for sure what I will do until I get there.

Your feed back on this would be great, what are your opinions and do you have and advise? Please don’t be cruel this is a sensitive subject for me.


Early signs of pregnancy or all in my head?

So now I’m 8DPO and I’m laying in bed feeling a bit sick but to be honest I have been awake for a few hour and if I wasn’t TTC (trying to conceive) I would probably just be thinking

I’m hungry better have some breakfast, it’s making me feel a bit sick

But I’m not, I’m laying here thinking

I wonder if this a sign that I’m pregnant

I found this great website click here to view it it’s a count down to pregnancy and the symptoms you can get
Here’s the chart I found on 8 days past ovulation symptoms


So here is what I think my symptoms may be at this stage…
Slight feeling of nausea
Have been very emotional for the past few days
Strong sense of smell
Slight cramping in my ovaries the last few days
Some creamy CM (cervical mucus) nice I know!,! Lol
And another nice one… Wind, and lots of it (lovely)

A lot of these could be explained by the fact I want out for dinner yesterday to a lovely restaurant, ate to much (hence feeling hungry and sick this morning) and would explain where the wind is coming from!

The CM can be quite normal a week before AF (aunt flow/period) is due to arrive and let’s face it I’m a girl, being emotional is what I am good at!

However the strong sense of smell is strange!

Are you are my stage in your cycle and so you have any symptoms? Leave me a comment it would be great to hear from you.

On that note I’m off to get some breakfast!
