Hi there,

I'm 12 dpo and AF is due tomorrow. This month I had a few symptoms which were not normal for me:

* Light cramping around ovulation, when I don't normally get any ovulation pain

*3dpo to now - crying over nothing, nearly burst into tears every time I see a mum with two children (ttc #2) But could just be the stress of TTC getting to me (TTC for 6 months)

*9po-11dpo - terrible stuffy nose and sore throat, which mysteriously went away today

11dpo and 12dpo - headache and slight nausea/cramping, general miserable feeling! I don't usually cramp much at all before AF, only a little bit once I've started.

* I usually get breast soreness from about 6 dpo to 10dpo and then it goes away. This is the one which is making me sad. This month I had just slight nipple tenderness, and a fuller feeling, like my bbs were bigger, so I stupidly got my hopes up ..... but then after this morning that has gone away completely!! So I guess I'm clutching at straws hoping this has happened to other people and they've still got a bfp?

I know I should just expect AF to show up tomorrow. I know I could probably test now, but a bfn upsets me so much more than AF just showing up, so I promised myself I wouldnt test until I'm at least 1-2 days late!

Hey Lilybird, I'm feeling different this month too. FX it is going to be a BFP! I also won't let myself test until at least a day after my longest cycle (32 days), so never have to see that stark white space where that second line should be. Stay strong & good luck! bbighug.gif

So I caved and tested today because AF didn't come and I'd been feeling sick and getting heartburn all day ...... OMG BFP!!!

Sort of sitting here in shock, it was faint but a definate line, don't need to hold it up to the light or anything, but I still can't believe it!

So funnily enough, my boobs did exactly the same thing they always do .... hurt up until 2 days before AF, then stop!
