Does anyone else go through this, or am I crazy?

I am supposed to start AF on the 17th. I feel so pregnant, but it is too soon to tell. Half the time I am convinced I am pregnant, the other half of the time I think I just want a baby so badly that I am hyper-sensitive to everything that "may" mean pregnancy. I feel like maybe I have got myself so revved up to be pregnant that my mind is making me think I am. Sore breasts, cramping, quesy stomach, and tired. I am just wondering if anyone else goes through this emotional rollercoaster every month?

  • I've felt the same way for the past 3 months. But sure enough AF came every time. But you never know it could be the one. Best of luck to you

  • I felt like this...sad thing is I went through it for about 8 or 9 months...I wanted to be pregnant so badly every month I kept thinking I missed (but my periods are hard to tell) and got the symptoms...then I would secretly take a test (so I wouldn't dissappoint my dh also) then when it came out negative I would be pretty sad...then I would start and be even more sad...after about the 7th (or so) month I finally thought there was something wrong with me that happened after my 2nd baby or I was waiting untill it would reach 12 months of trying so I can get checked...anyways, As soon as I stopped worrying so much about it I got pregnant! yay! I was happy when I read that positive test and called in my dh who was happy too. So try not to stress about it so much and maybe it will come sooner.

  • I did with my first pregnancy, but am trying to keep things in better perspective this round of TTC. Incidently when I actually got pregnant the only symptom I had was not getting my period.

  • I have been doing the same thing for the last 3 months, this is my first time trying to get pregnant so I'm not really sure what it's supposed to feel like. Every month I am so sure that I am pregnant and then AF comes right on schedule.
