    The staff in your local chemist have probably nicknamed you 'crazy pregnancy test lady' due to the amount of tests you repeatedly buy.

    You get tender boobies during the tww and think 'maybe I'm pregnant'

    You have tried lots of random fertility remedies including eatting pineapple core, drinking raspberry leaf tea, green tea, etc etc

    You get bleeding gums during the tww and think 'maybe I'm pregnant'

    You probably know more about infertility issues and womens cycles than your GP due to reading every scrap of information you could find on the subject.

    You get a twinge in your tummy during the tww and think 'maybe I'm pregnant'.

    Your partner knows more than the average woman about ttc due to you never shutting up about it.

    You feel like you are peeing more during the tww and think 'maybe I'm pregnant'.

    You make sure and wear white underpants during the tww in order to spot any implantation spotting.

    You get an odd taste in your mouth during the tww and think 'maybe I'm pregnant'.

    You promise yourself every month that you wont symptom spot next month but you inevitably do.

    You have a vivid dream during the tww and think 'Maybe I'm pregnant'

    You promise yourself that you wont test until your period is late then test 5 days before its due.

    You get a twitch in your eye during the tww and think 'maybe I'm pregnant'

    You know the sensitivity and accuracy of every pregnancy test that is a available to buy, it could be your specialist mastermind subject.

    :) Feel free to add to this list below, I think we need to laugh at ourselves sometimes, especially if you've been trying to concieve as long as I have.:wave:

    Great idea!

    When your friend excitedly tells you that she and her husband are going to start trying in a year, and you have to hold yourself back from yelling 'WHY THE HELL ARE YOU WAITING DO IT NOOOOOW!'

    Haha, I feel that about everyone else (even my sister) but this friend is a little older than me and has had a rough few years, so I would be totally ecstatic if she sprogged before me. Still jealous, of course, but I think I can feel multiple emotions in one go!

    When you fish your HPT ' S out of the bin several times a day for another look in case a line has magically appeared (even though you know it would be an evap by then)

    When you start testing at 7 dpo even though you know how ridiculous that is!

    Great list, made me laugh!

    Ha ha! So funny. I've gone past the stage of thinking I'm pregnant ever. I think it was after the 15th pregnancy test. Now if I do get pregnant it'll probably be a huge shock.

    You don't want your incredibly tender boobs and stinging nipples to stop hurting

    Oh my god these are so true. I'm particularly loving the white underpants one.

    Also having things in your internet search history like "strange vibration in uterus - early pregnancy symptom?"
