Coco you just need to relax :-)
First cycle is very hypersensitive to symptoms that's very normal. You'll find there's actually a lot going on with your body you've just never noticed until you started paying attention. Don't stress about your gp, sounds like you've been experiencing O, and you need to jump into bed ASAP xx

Your first few cycles are super sensitive like MrsT said, you notice so many things you didnt before and read into every single one. You might even create symptoms in your mind: eg Ive totally convinced myself I have three major prego symptoms and its not even possible for me to get pregnant naturally!!
We want this so badly we almost trick ourselves into thinking its possible and if you're o'ing now its very possible, get to it!

Agh so much to catch up on in just 1 day!
For the sake of my already empty bank account, I think I need to stay away from those sites mentioned...it sounds like their products are too cute to resist
As for buying baby stuff beforehand, I was/am still exactly the same as Wishen - 2yrs ttc, a 2nd tri m/c and thousands of $$ at the fs. Come to think of it, had we spent along the way, we wouldn't have had that money spare to afford the specialist who got us utd straight away. So for us, it was probably a huge blessing that we were so cautious about buying! (I hadn't thought of that before)
Crafty - I didn't have a baby shower for DD. My gf asked to throw me one but I nicely declined it. Personally, I think you should celebrate after the baby is born, not before. I also feel awkward about baby showers and the expectation that you buy a gift for that then again after the baby is born! I secretly think it's a bit cheeky too but that's my personal opinion
Coco - righto, having a look at your dates and symptoms. If you *think* you o'd yesterday/today, they would be related to O symptoms and you're def not pregnant - yet. You're on CD 15 which they tend to say most women with the average 28 day cycle o on CD 14 so with a slightly shorter cycle, you may possibly have even o'd a day or 2 ago. The 'wet' is usually a sure sign of o as that's what the spermies need to get through, the sore nips may be as a result of the LH hormone surging and the crammpy feeling - well some women say they can actually feel ovulation because of the cramping. Unless you O straight after your period finishes and have an incredibly long LP, I would highly doubt they're pregnancy symptoms yet.
I can't recall but were you on bc? That will possibly play around with your body a bit first cycle off. If you weren't, it's obviously not that!
Hopefully that makes sense for you! I was in the ttc for a long time too

I was only on BCP for Europe (so 3 cycles) I got off in September. October I had a normal cycle. I'm pretty sure I ovulated then but my symptoms were not like this.
If I ovulated a few days ago then our actions from Sunday may lead to something.
I'll keep you posted!

As far as gifts go with people I know if I get a gift for a baby shower I won't give one when baby is born that's how I see it. If someone gives you something that's lovely and shouldn't be expected for a baby shower and after the birth and I wouldn't want to give a gift to someone who expected that to be honest lol.

Of course I'd always be happy for a yummy baby pressie, but I would never expect one. I consider a baby shower to be the time to spend with those who wouldn't be coming to the hospital. I'd rather have a get together and catchup prior, so I'm not inundated with visitors when we aren't up to it and just want to be alone with the 3 of us.

Hehe thats the beauty of going home quickly after bubs is born, nobody has time to visit you. I must admit though we were lucky with family/friends when DD was born - they knew we were at the birth centre and that we'd have an early discharge after she was born so they didn't bother asking to come (only one I asked to come was my brother just before we were discharged but he was working only 50m down the road).
We had an afternoon when she was about 4wks old where family 'called by' between a specified time to meet her then did the same for friends the following weekend. Sort of an open house for 2hrs. It worked so well for us, we told everyone of this plan when she was born so we didn't get 101 requests to visit. We'll definitely do the same with this little flea, I figure it's easier to have one unsettled day with visitors rather than a dozen unsettled days when people are coming each day

Lucky for me I don't live close to any of my friends and it'd be a good 40 minutes drive at least so ha! I wouldn't want anybody coming around. I'm even going to request my partners family ( the ones that don't live with us) not come by because I won't want the flock of people gawking and me having to use energy on entertaining guests . Yuck
