Trying to conceive

Ok, now I know I'm only 8DPO and a test is pointless but I'm so close to just testing lol so please can I have some distraction from you ladies...anything!
I feel here is the only place I can rant...maybe if I list the symptoms "I think" I'm having it'll make me feel better so here goes...sorry to go on...think it'll just help me to tell people...off load it you know...right...
1. Woken up to pee every night since 1DPO (usually have worlds strongest bladder)
2. Starving hungry all the time, yesterday I had fry up breakfast, prezzo's for lunch and Indian for dinner and still wanted more (i usually skip breakfast and sometimes lunch!)
3. Sore boobs since 5DPO, shooting pains in nipples, (Never a PMS symptom for me)
4. Acid Reflux today, woke up this morning with a feeling of completely empty stomach but didn't fancy anything to eat, forced breakfast down and have had this acid reflux/heartburn all morning!
5. Mild cramps and fluttering bubbly feelings in uterus all week!
Phew...and breath! Wishful thinking, all in my head, who knows! Feels better to just list them though, thanks :)

Back away from the tests! Easier said than done and this is really not going to help, but I was eyeing them up this morning.....i am 6dpo - foolish girl that i am. I left for work and forgot all about it (until tomorrow). Only a few more days left and you will be able to test to your hearts content should you wish.

There is no point - your wasting a test that you can use to give you a more accurate result in a couple of days! :)

I would test, but then I have about 20 ICs in the house, and I'm a POAS addict. I'm trying not to test at 4DPO

I wouldn't test at 8dpo. If you are pregnant the embryo probably won't have implanted yet so it won't be producing HCG which pg tests pick up. Your symptoms sound really promising and I have everything crossed for a bfp from you, but I'd leave it at least a couple of days. Easier said than done, I know!

Thank you ladies for helping me see reason!!
I'm glad now that I purposely only bought two Superdrug tests to help me save them for when it'll be an accurate result!!!
Saffron - I wanted to test 1DPO

Blessed, I can see why you want to test (I've been having many of the same feelings for a week) but you really need to wait until Friday. Even if you are you will invariably get a BFN now and seeing that isn't fun. Far more enjoyable to wait though even Friday might still be too early.

I'm glad you've been able to resist. Decide what day you can test & try to wait until then. I was so disappointed last month when I tested too early & feel like I wasted a lot of tests. Strangely after all the disappointment this cycle I'm not tempted at all yet even though I'm at 10dpo. Have a few possible symptoms, but not as many as you have. Good luck x x
