Thinking of Testing Soon

Well, I know I'm not supposed to be having any real symptoms yet.  I'm really only 9 dpo. 

Nonetheless, starting at about 2dp5dt (7 dpo), I started getting serious indigestion after eating.  This has always been a good sign of pg for me, especially when it occurs after several meals across several days, which it has.  

Last night at 3dp5dt (8 dpo), I started getting the tingly boobs.  This, again, is generally a good sign for me. 

And then today, 4dp5dt, I have had the worst nausea.  It comes and goes, but when it's here, it's pretty damn crappy.  I have also had anxiety nausea, but this feels completely different.  

Yes, I do understand that this could all be in my head.  Or it could completely be side effects of PIO.  But usually I have one or the other, not all three and not at "appropriate" times.  

I am so not one to wait for the blood count.  Even if I do test too early, I'd rather be prepped for bad news than to have bad news sprung upon me.  Plus, I've taken so, so, so, so, so many pregnancy tests (including a positive one with a 4 beta blood count), that I do know the difference between a really faint positive test and an absolutely, completely negative one.  (At least on a FRER).

Of course, the only times I've ever been pregnant have been when I've been completely convinced I'm not, so now I'm pretty much doomed.

That's "doomed" in a good way, I'm sure :-)

Dollar store tests are your friend ;)

I do think the dollar store tests are good. However, I've gotten multiple positive FRERs and the dollar store ones have not be positive. (All those chem pgs, dontcha know)

Whatever you decide will be right for you - I have no idea what I will do when the time comes (IF they ever get the little guys inside me - STILL waiting for ET!)
Good luck, waiting for news!

I'm not one to wait it out either. Everything crossed for you!

I've found indigestion to be pretty certain sign of "doom"! Good luck!!

My experience was totally opposite with dollar store tests. They were white white white for me when "The Answer" tests were positive. In fact, right before and after my awful beta of 15 "The Answer" was positive and the dollar store tests were negative.

But maybe that's the point. Those dollar store tests really measure a beta over 40 or so, where the FRERs and Answer ones measure much much lower.

I'm crossing my fingers for you!
