af isn't quite due yet, but af feelings are very strong, and all tests are BFN's, so i have no hope, but why does sometimes our bodies play tricks on us? is it just wishful thinking, that can actually cause pg symtoms, which leads us to false hope? i mean, i feel nauseous tha past few days, i feel more tired, and i definately feel more emotional. iam craving spicy foods, that normally i don't want. i am peeing alot. it's wacky! iam almost 110% sure that iam not pregnant, i just don't get why sometimes it can feel like you are if your not? why is mother nature so darn cruel?? just wondering if anyone can relate to this, and iam hoping if you are out there reading this, and having symptoms, PLEASE do not, let this post get you down. iam sure this isn't a very common thing, and i do not mean for it to get anyone's spirits down, who got a fighting chance this cycle. i have already been getting my negative tests and strong af feelings, i wish noone to have any false symptoms at all! iam just in a mood, and wanted to see if anyone can relate to this. **ultra special baby dust to all!*** sherry

Amen. Just went through this - thought I had all the symptoms and then wham - af!! I never thought trying to conceive would be so hard....

hey kiddo! well, i hope next month is the one for you! it's very frustrating! i also thought when i was younger "better be careful with unprotected sex" figuring if i did it once or twice, i'd surely get pregnant, and i was too young at the time. if only that were true for us all hey? i empathize. hugs, shelly

Hi Sherry. Hang in there. I too just had something like that happen last cycle. I did my 1st IUI, so I knew I had a legit chance of being pregnant so I was so hopeful when I started craving protein, my nipples were VERY sore, I too got a little neuseous from time to time, etc. Then just like the other poster--AF came with a vengence. So, I can also relate to that. It's cruel, I know. For me, I'm wondering if it was just the trigger shot causing those pg like symptoms. I'm going to ignore them this cycle! Anyway, good luck. I'm sorry AF is playing mean tricks on you.

I know how you feel. That is why i now refuse to let myself believe that i am. It was just too heartbreaking to go thru that each month. So now i just dont even let myself think it that way i wont be quite so down each month.
