    Default It's the not knowing!!

    It's the not knowing that is driving me nuts!!

    I am *possibly* pregnant- unplanned, but not unwanted.

    CD1 was Jul 4th, and DP and I DTD on Jul 13th (his birthday lol) and Jul 15th when I was ovulating.

    About 7-10 days ago I began to have very sore breasts, and (this is the only way to describe it, but it's not accurate) a 'heavy' uterus, with constant 'pings' (again not accurate, but the only way to describe it) around my ovaries.

    I tested on Saturday, so CD24 with FMU using FR and there was definitely NOT a second line... I was a bit upset, but mostly happy because as I said, it would have been unplanned. I got into the mindset that morning that AF will come on time, and that now I knew I wasn't pregnant, these phantom symptoms that I have made up in my head would disappear.

    However, the sore breasts and other symptoms have continued, as well and having mucous all this cycle (not always heaps, but enough for me to be aware of it's presence) as well as my libido being noticeably higher. I tested again this morning, with AF being due in 2 days I thought I might have got a different response again using FMU and FR and got nothing again.

    I already have children, and have read that some mothers with their second and subsequent pregnancies were able to realise they were pregnant before any test would pick it up, and before they skipped a period...

    But also.. I do note that maybe because there is the possibility that I may be pregnant that maybe I am just reading too much into everything, everything is as it normally is but I'm usually not paying enough attention to this.. I'm reading too much into it all?

    Just after some people who may be in the same boat, or even possibly who's tests did not show a positive result until well after a missed period? It's all I can think about atm and it's driving me nuts!


    (PS- yes- I am a hubber in hiding.)

    Oh so we can be crazy together! Haha!

    My breasts are so sore today, and honestly.. if my period does show up, I will be fine and life will go on as usual...

    But if I am.. I would like to get excited about it! As I said, this baby is not unwanted (definitely by me... and since discussing with DP, I do think he may be a little bit excited too!)

    I can totally understand! For six months we have been trying, you know not hardcore, more like if it happens it happens. Each month right before my period I swear I have those same symptoms and I make a test. Then I kick myself because each test shows its negative and a small part of me keeps a little candle burning.. Then comes AF, as you said *gutted.* I mean I have three already and it was so easy to fall pregnant, the longest took 4mnths of trying. Since this is longer and I am slightly older, I am taking it harder on myself.
