Talking Want to commiserate about "imaginary" symptoms? LOL!

It's an easy trap to fall into when you're TTC...

I'm now 11 DPO and still having what I hope are pregnancy symptoms. One day I had a sore throat. But I've also been nauseous and very tired for quite a few days now. Decreased appetite. Hot flashes. Backaches. Cramps (including some sharp pains occasionally).

This morning I took an internet cheapy test and I either got an evap line or a VERY faint positive. Can't tell so I guess I'll just retest tomorrow.

What about everyone else? Misery loves company, and maybe this way we'll feel better if we're really "imagining" our symptoms.

BTW I have a secret. I have an HPT in my purse in case I can't stand to wait and decide to POAS at work today.

I should have put IC test in that message because that's what I had... and I had the urge to test and forgot that it's a dip strip and peed on it instead. Guess I'll be heading to a drug store on my lunch break today for a real test.

BTW, anybody have any idea which ones are the most sensitive? http://peeonastick.com has a great list of HPT sensitivities, but I can't access it from work...

Jena - LOL, I don't go to lunch until 1PM and it's only 11:55AM here.

I hate wasting money testing early, but it's a compulsion...can't help myself!

Marielblewis - Get thee a test and test right away! When's the last time you tested? Since AF is MIA, have you considered having your doctor run a quantitative blood test (beta)?

kthoelen - You're as bad as I am! I started testing 2 days ago with the internet cheapies, even though I knew it was too early!
