    AF Symptoms

    Well, I think she is coming. I am not only having cramps, but I break out on my face when I am ready to start my cycle. I am still hoping, but think she is here, as I broke out tonight. I have not heard of acne being a pregnancy symptom. I am not ready for a negative, not sure how I will react. Fingers crossed.....

    Kris 7 I am so sorry to think that AF is coming for you. I got up this morning thinking the same about myself. I will be keeping my fingers crossed for you and hoping you see a BFP on a test stick. mindy

    i had severe cramping 2 days before AF, the day I was suppose to get it and the day after - and it never showed and found out BFP. The thing that was different was - usually I would spot from AF and then cramps would start - not cramps then spot. I was convinced - convinced I was getting Af- even had several glasses of wine!
    And you do get acne when preg. !!!
    good luck- still lots of hope.

    Hi Kris,
    Don't give up hope just yet, I had cramping the month I received my BFP. Also, I broke out on my chest and back. When you are pregnant your progesterone stays high which can mimic AF symptoms. When are you going to test again?

    I hope that you are wrong. You just never know. We have so many hormones pumping through our bodies you could have broken out just because of that.

    My complexion has been pretty bad this cycle. I think that it's the HCG trigger & then the booster.

    I hope that you are experiencing early pg signs!!

    Hugs,

    Don't want to get your hopes up but acne is a pg symptom. Try to stay positive.

    Kris I too have AF symptoms. I am hoping that our bodies is just trying to fool us. I took a hpt this morning at 11dpo and it was a bfn! I am so upset. Please keep us updated.

    Thanks everybody. I am pumped up after reading all these great postings.... maybe I am still in the game. I thought for sure I would wake up to an AF, but not even spotting yet.

    I posted this late last night so I would wake up to good news, and bammmmmm.... you guys are awesome!

    Genevieve - I am going to test right when I get home and I have severaal tests, so then the next morning, then the next evening, then the next morning, then the next evening (and repeat until I see a positive!!!!) lol (Sorry, going crazy, needed to put some humor up here!)

    Keep thinking positive, I know that I had all my AF symptoms when I got pregnant. I honestly thought that it was coming at any time! Good luck!!

    When do you go for your beta?
