    Since leaving work and going self employed I've been really having to penny pinch and therefore haven't had any hpt's in the house, not even a single ic or even an opk on desperation! Think I'm 9dpo today and would normally have pee'd on a few ic's already, ha ha! It's so weird not being able to test and satisfy that urge. Got the usual symptoms of sore boobs and nipples, cramps, etc which i get every month. However this month i've been constipated since Sunday morning (sorry tmi!) with only a little bit of a movement this morning. Have been taking senna tablets since last night to try and get things moving. Of course I'm immediately thinking 'ooh is it a symptom?' which is pointless as I won't know unless af is late but it doesn't stop the crankiness! I guess it's best not to have the hpt's as I'm not seeing bfn's day after day but right now I'd love to poas!!! ;)

    Ooh you never know then! I've been driving myself daft checking my boobs in the mirror every 5 mins, theyve got the 'pregnant' look, which they sadly get every month and I even noticed it early on in a cycle a while back so I know it's a waste of time but I still can't help analysing every little vein, is it darker, are there more veins, are my nipples different blah blah. I need to get a life ;) x
