Do you remember that whole statement about not testing early and not obsessing about symptoms? Yeah, I'm failing miserably but this time around it hasn't been so stressful, just a little exciting. I haven't spotted since saturday, which has been an huge releif. But I have noticed some changes that I hope are a good indication that I am pregnant:


Around mid-day on Monday, I was knocked down by this intense feeling of exhaustion which has continued throughout this week so far. It reminds me of how I felt when I had mono. After work, I've been going straight to bed for an hour long nap only to return back to bed by nine. Even though I'm so exhausted, I've been waking up at the sound of any little noise. I thinking the worst part is I'm also having these intensely violent dreams. They are so vivid, I feel like they are actually happening. I can't tell you how many times in the last week I've been murdered!

Symptom #2:
I have been experiening the worst burning, itchy, dry eyes since sunday. I can't even wear my contacts. I also noticed that I'm having a hard time reading small print, but this seems to come and go. It's strange that my eyesight would change, it's not a significant change but still noticeable.

Symptom #3
My sinuses have been really acting up since monday. It feels like I have the beginning of a sinus infection. I am so stuffed up when I wake up in the morning, it's hard to breathe. I also noticed a significant amount of drainage in my throat, which is just iritating.

I took the plunge and took a hpt this morning and it was negative but I just have the feeling that this just has to be it. I know you must think I'm a little coo-coo, but I never felt this way during previous cycles.

Still crossing my fingers!

Crossing my fingers, too!

I feel strangely invested in this because we're cycle twins. I'm really, really, really hoping this is the one for you.

It's good you're feeling symptoms! Fingers crossed for you!

Oh wow, exciting! Crossing my fingers with you. . .

Here from cyclesista. Doesn't the 2WW mess with our minds?

I wouldn't fret over a - HPT at 11 dpo; that's still pretty early.

Good luck to you!
