    Default First timer!

    Hi Guys,
    First time post here so not to sure if im in the right area!
    Hubby and i have been trying since start of July. Im now pretty excited as im 7 days over due! Little bit clueless with the signs though as so much is conflicting on the internet so thought id come on here and see what others thought!
    So the first obvious sign being im now 7 days late! by breats are very tender ( bra rubbing hurts my nipples!) im also getting very light cramping throughout the day for a few days that comes and goes. Feels similar to period cramping but as quickly as it comes on it dissapears again, but it does happen through the day.. apart from those thats all i am feeling atm.
    What do people think? Im a little hesistant to take a test as im excited and i dont want to get my hopes up and be dissapointed. how long would you wait before testing?

    Thanks guys!

    Jess

    I think you should do a test, I'm impressed you have been able to wait this long (I know I couldn't). Your symptoms sound very positive. With this pregnancy (2nd, have 17month old ds) I tested the day before AF was due and got a very strong positive.

    Good luck with the test and let us know how you go.
