Hey  biggrin.gif

Just thought I'd start a thread with what symptoms people have and how many days past ovulation you are?

I'm 6dpo at the moment.

1dpo- nothing
2dpo- excess creamy cm
3do- sore boobs and excess creamy cm
4do- gassy, sore boobs and pinching to the lower left of belly button
5dpo- constipation and sore boobs
6dpo- constipation, sore boobs and excess creamy cm

I wonder who else is 6dpo with similar symptoms...
It'll be interesting to see where everyones at in their cycle original.gif

I'm 14DPO and temp is still up ... but I'm to scared to test after yesterday's BFN.

Today I've got lower back pain, bloated, sore (.)(.)'s, headache, hot, insomnia ..... just waiting for the mood swings to kick in and I'm sure AF will be arriving soon!

Great topic Chloesmum! Your symptoms sounds exactly like what I had last month. Was BFN in the end but part of me thinks I had a chemical pregnancy, as my AF came 5 days early.

I'm 3 or 4 dpo. I've had a lot of crampiness & creamy CM. Will test at 8dpo so probably on the weekend. I got a Bfp with my son at 8dpo original.gif

I am cd 25 and have been crampy on and off..I had cm around cd 22.. I tested this morn and got pfn . I am due for at tomorrow. I normally spot for at least 2 days before AF but nothing so far. I did test with my last eBay  cheapie so ill have to buy more if AF doesn't show by fri.... Wonder if the cheapie work or not anyone know? Am I better off buying one from the chemist? Good luck to everyone..

Hi again!

It is so interesting to hear about how others' cycles work!

I am now CD21 of a 28 day cycle. Just like last month on CD21, today I have cramping. Sort of feels like period cramps though still a week til AF is due. Exactly the same thing happened last month.

Does anyone else experience this? Not sure how many DPO I am...and also have had incredibly sore (.)(.) for the past week since about CD14...

Hi I am 9 DPO and am feeling fairly normal apart from having head spins when I stand up.  I have tested 5 times now and all BFN am just hoping that it is too early...  Am due for AF on 2/12.
I HATE the waiting!!  I am thinking of testing again on Friday 30/12.  I have a son turning 16 in December and I have never had to go through the waiting time as he was a surprise!

Hi ladies. I'm confused... I was due for AF yesterday according to the last few months being 26 days apart however I have only had a couple if spots. I k ow I O a couple if days later at around cd 13 or 14 according to the opk I seemed to of been o cd 11 or 12  previous months. I am wondering if AF is going to up on cd 28 this month and I'm still hoping there is a bfp chance ....  I tested when af was due yesterday and got bfn . Will test tomorrow on cd 28 if af doesn't show up. Maybe the few spots I have had was implantation?????????  If I'm preg I really hope that's what it was as last time I had bleeding I had an ectopic ......

Mrsmac - yes i get that cramping around cd21 whether i'm pregnant or not. I know I'm not pregnant this month (af is due in a couple of days but we're taking a break this month after two chemical pregnancies in a row). I'm not getting nearly as many cramps as I did the two previous months when I was pregnant. I also don't have sore boobs which I did the past few cycles. That said, my symptoms vary quite a bit month by month and I think it's basically impossible to tell anything from them!

I'm 3 or 4 dpo.  Within 24 hours of O I felt bloated and had a very heavy feeling in my lower abdomen and my uterus feels like it has popped over the pubic bone and is rock hard.  I am starting to think I am making this all up.  Surely symptoms can't be this obvious so soon?? I have had a bit of CM but not a huge amount and my boobs seem a bit bigger but are not sore.

OMG OMG OMG!!!! I got a faint positive today! Its very faint but def there. Guna do another in afew days to see if the line gets any darker. Glad it wasnt all in my head this month. This whole TTC thing can make you go crazy trying to symptom spot...

Yesterday was 9dpo, got my BFP.gif today biggrin.gif

Biggest give away for me was breaking out with pimples my face, back and chest and the constipation. Last time i was constipated was when i was pregnant back in june (ended in miscarriage in july). Its weird tho TMI but its not like i feel like i need to go but cant i just haven't felt the need to in nearly a week. I hope this isn't a sign of whats to come, i had it real bad when pregnant with DD. Boobs not as sore today as they have been but still pretty tender (they seem to be worse if im wearing a bra), i had implantation pains 3 days ago (no blood) and not as much CM as there was in the days after O. Can't wait to get it confirmed and book in for my fist prenatal appt biggrin.gif

#19 maybethree

Posted 01 December 2012 - 02:03 PM

Congratulations!  Very exciting!!

I'm now 5 or 6dpo and I am tired and GRUMPY.  My 3 year old is driving me nuts.

My boobs are BIG, but not sore.  There doesn't feel like there is as much of a party going on in my belly as there has been since O but am still bloated and can feel what I am sure is my uterus rock hard just above my pubic bone.  I really hope this is early PG and not just my body adjusting to the first cycle off the pill.  I'll let you all know next week! original.gif

Posted 02 December 2012 - 11:03 AM

Oooo yay chloesmum!!!!! biggrin.gif maybethree I hope you get a bfp soon!!

I've been symptom spotting for a week now... I just took a test and I think I saw a 2nd line, but I'm not sure - it was kinda greyish, and then disappeared - i can only see it in certain lights so I dunno. It's only been 7 days since I went off the pill too... probably a bit too early... but I'm crampy and feel sick all the time sad.gif Who knows...

#21 LumpySpacePrincess

Posted 02 December 2012 - 07:06 PM

Another BFP.gif today original.gif I think i may hav overdone it with testing but oh well, its nice to see the lines getting darker with each day.

New symptom to add to the list, im craving tuna mornay :/ Haven't eaten it in years (only ever did during a low budget week wen i was still living at home). Guess my body needed something in it...

Nice one Chloesmum!
AFM, I'm 4dpo and if any of these are eps I think I can safely say that this might be the worst pregnancy in history so far:
2-4 dpo: Bronchitis 3dpo: weird painful armpit lump (swollen lymph node from the above possibly, I have lumps that flare up around AF that I monitor with ultrasounds)2dpo: constipation (which I never get, although it could be from Panadol I took for bronchitis)3dpo: crazy stomach pain last night (had me doubled over in pain and thinking 'this must be what labour is like') and diarrhea (sorry tmi!)4dpo: nipples are bigger I think. Not 100% sure. Haven't paid much attention to their size in the past. All in all I'm much more likely just sick than pregnant, but it's certainly making eps-spotting a lot harder.
