Well, my partner and I have been trying to get pregnant, and I now totally understand how you can start imagining things! I can't believe how much I've been poking myself to see if I have sore breasts or if I'm feeling extra tired because of the late night or because of something small growing inside of me.

It's still too early to test, but my nipples have been feeling weird and sensitive and sometimes even bruised. But it's not significant enough or regular enough for me to do more than tell myself that I shouldn't get my hopes up.

Man the human body is irritating! Wish it was easier to understand from the inside!

Sorry I can't give advice ('just be patient' is not what you want to hear, I know!), but it may make you feel a little better to know you aren't alone. I am in the exact same boat. Every little thing could be a symptom (fingers crossed). I've wondered if my breasts are sore because I keep poking at 'em to see if they're sore... :)
Oh well, I should have a better idea by next week. How about you?
Hugs and energy-

Exactly!!

Wom-yn! Can't leave well enough alone, always poking and prodding things. . .

I should know in the next week or so, in the meantime, I'll just enjoy the excitement!

Don't let it get you down if it takes a while. With my first son it was second month trying got pregnant, this time took nearly 9 months of trying to fall. My friend fell pregnant at the same time as me first time around, and miscarried twins, it has taken her 2 years to fall again and this time around she's now 14 weeks and still going strong.

Best of luck, just try and relax, I found the month I stopped caring was the month I fell! Stress levels don't help :) Good luck!

I'm also playing the waiting game. I'm mostly trying not to think about it too much. I know stress can make it take longer. So other than making sure we had sex frequent enough I try not to think about it. My 3 year old is a very good distraction. :hahugh: Good luck, baby dust and hugs to you!

Well, I just couldn't wait any longer and tested. . . and it was a very faint positive!!!

So, I'm now trying not to hyperventilate while waiting for DH to get home to tell him. He's going to be so happy! I'm flipflopping between happy and terrified because of the changes I know will be coming.

I feel like I'm 16, not 26, and therefore way too young for this. I'm not a grown up yet!!

Heh, big changes coming our way in. . . March 2010!

What to expect when your expecting is a good one. We (dh and I ) both read it during my pregnancy's.

Oh Poledra- Congrats, YAY!!!! :boing: I'm really happy for you. I have a couple more days before I will test... fingers crossed tho.
Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy (http://www.amazon.com/Mayo-Clinic-Guide-Healthy-Pregnancy/dp/0060746378/ref=wl_it_dp?ie=UTF8&coliid=IOC6FXBB53YTF&colid=29LQR0036UORE)is the book that has been suggested to me most frequently. Also gets very high reviews on Amazon. I have an entire wish list of books saved on their website... :)
Have fun sharing the news this evening!!!

I know how you feel - about feeling 16 and not 26! Though I am 23, but I still feel way too young to be a mommy! even though technically our bodies are ready for it from when we are early teenagers.

Congrats!!! I hope it goes well!! :)

Bright Blessings to you and your wee one to be

Just for the record.. I never "felt preggers" at first. Pregnancy hits women differently.
