Post subject: hi...
hi girls just been looking at the site and wanted to join you all, you all seem so friendly and supportive!!
ok, so my bf and i have decided to start a family, i am 23 and was on the pill for 1.5 years before i came off it in june, i had my withdrawel bleed followed my my first natural period on 24th july, we tried hard to make a baby every day from 22nd july to 1st august, the time i guessed i was ovulating as i noticed the signs...ive learnt them all from reading so much about it,
my period was due today....so i'm happy its not here yet, i did a test yesterday but it was a cheap strip one for only 89p, i didnt wanna waste 2 much money- i knew it would prob show negative because i havent actually missed my period yet however... every so often i get a sicky feeling that washes over me and dissapears as fast as it came, also, every so often my nipples tingle and become hard, i have been having a cramping like feeling for the past week, usually on the left side but not like period cramps, like shooting pains and my stomach feels like i went to the gym yesterday, i was immensely tired last week, waking up after 12 hours sleep and needing a nap 3 hours later but that has passed now.....
what do you girls think?? signs....??
sorry for the long essay but i want it to be true so much, i cant wait to be a mum.
your opinions/experience would be greatly appreciated.

Hi everyone, thanks for all your support, i have been going crazy today as my friend has just had a baby and i went to see them....oooohhh i want 1!!!!
also just read through what i wrote yesterday and realised i said we'd had sex evey day since 22nd july even though my period didn start till 24th doh! i meant 27th!!
so still no sign of af today, my sister wants me to take a test in the morning but im not sure yet, im scared if i do i'll tempt fate and come on tomorrow.
thanks to everyone who has replied and i return all your wishes of good luck.xx

you sound exacyly like me lol!!
we came off contraceptive at the same time and had our period at the same time!
i've got my fingers crossed for both of us hun......
i finished work at 3am this morning so was due to wake up with my alarm at 10, however ive been over the loo since 7 feeling that i'm gonna be sick 'now'- i gave in and did the other cheap test that was in the pack but it was negative, i'm gonna test with a clearblue on saturday if there is still no sign of AF, just to check i'm trying to convince myself that my hormornes aren't high enough yet or that the tests dont work because they're cheap!!
lets hope i spend the day thinking about that instead of crying that AF has arrived!!
good luck to u hun.
