So I am sure that there has been many of these threads started, but I just wanted to see if I am being silly thinking that the symptoms I am having could possibly be a pregnancy.
So I tested using an ovulation test, and it came back positive, so I guess I would now be 10dpo (I'm new to charting, my first bub was a complete surprise).
2 days after O I had these little pulling cramps that lasted most of the day and continued lightly for the next day.
3 days after O I had really sore nipples, DH even commented on them saying they looked sore and really full!
breast tenderness continued for another 2-3 days, they are still a tiny bit sore.
I have also noticed that when I brush my gums a little bit of blood has been on the brush, this happened in my first pregnancy, but not until later on.
And the last thing is I had a nose bleed, the last time I had a bleed I was in primary school which was over 15 years ago. Oh also a sore lower back, but I get that with my period usually.
I don't want to test just yet, but I just wanted to know if anyone else had these early signs and if they resulted in a positive?

Yes you will see many threads here with overanalysis of eps. its our national pastime. as implantation occurs around 7-10dpo (could be as early as 5 and as late as 12) any symptoms in the first couple of days are likely attributable to ovulation. anything after 5dpo feel free to have an eps-fest!!

Progesterone can give lovely pg symptoms - which will usually be at it's peak at 7DPO.
