Hi there,
Would appreciate your advice. Am ttc #2 and am 7 dpo (approx). Am having tingly boobs (mostly nipples)  laughing2.gif now and then, not dissimilar to the beginning of the 'let-down' when BF. Thought it was b/c I was cold earlier in the day and so turned the cooling down. Am toasty warm now, but it's still happening.
Possibly an early sign of pg???
Ta.

Could very well be a sign of early pg! I remember my breasts being very tingly during early days of my pg, although it was sort of painful tingling.

Good luck. Hope you get your BFP soon!

hi again,
think I might be out for the month. Did a test this morning with FMU and got a BFN. BUM! cry1.gif  I would be about 11 DPO, though I haven't been doing proper O tracking yet - will remedy this next month!
Shall expect AF to arrive Thurs.
Can NOT for the life of me explain the tingly boobs - was over 3 days, and I've never experienced it before when not BFing . . . weird!
Thanks for your help anyway - will let you know if the verdict changes.  hands.gif

I wouldnt rule yourself out just yet. 11dpo is still early for testing especially if implantation was late.
Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Ditto to what Kensgirl said. It is still early days . With DS1 tingly boobs where the first symptoms I had several days before AF was due. Fingers crossed for you.

oooohhhh - so dangerous to keep my hopes up. I already had a little cry this morning from disappointment! But at least I've got my early testing out of the way, and I'll just wait now and see if AF shows up on Thurs. If it hasn;t come by the arvo, I'm off to buy a test for Fri morning!!
What a nice surprise it would be to get a BFP!
I'll be sure to let you know.

dont give up until the AF sings!!!!

#12 ~my happiness~

Posted 07 January 2008 - 02:42 PM

Yes, it's not over yet.
With #3 I had the tingly horrid boobies from around DPO7 and then BFN's for days 8,9,10,11 and bango, day 12 - two pink lines.  All through those nasty BFN's I just knew.
Cross your fingers!

what exactly does tingly feel like? ATM i have a feeling like my boobs are prickly, like there is something sharp (Like prickles) in my top rubbing on them...
Is that what tingles feel like??  hands.gif

tingly boobs . . . hard to describe any other way!!  laughing2.gif  particularly sensitive around nipples, and then 'tingling' from the nipples back to the inside of the breast somewhere . . . it's identical to the beginning of the let-down reflex you get when BFing, but it never gets painful. If I am pg, then my boobs have since adjusted to the hormone levels! I've had the beginning of the tingling and sensitive nipples all days yesterday and today, but nothing like the crazy, constant tingling of Saturday, or the intermittent episodes of the 2 days prior to that.
I'm waiting for AF on Thursday. There will be no more tests bought until then!  :wink: Thank you all for your kind support and good wishes. Maybe I will still be lucky . . .

I've not really had any myself, but when I went to the doctor today and he was checking off symptoms on my medical file he asked me if I'd had any tingling in my boobs, so it must be!

Good luck biggrin.gif

My "prickly" sensation turned into a BFP! How did you go!!?

#19 Leeloo

Posted 10 January 2008 - 09:40 PM

OMG me too!!! A BFP! I can't believe our luck! I tested in the middle of the day, so the line wasn't strong, but it was well and truly there!! I'm so glad it wasn't only my desire to be pg making my boobs tingle and I actually was!! I'm off to the docs tomorrow morning to get confirmation, and a referral to my ob - who hopefully will be able to see me asap next week.
re symptoms, is the aching back normal? As predicted, I'm going to be v worried about m/c until about 14 weeks . . . I can't remember if my back ached like this with Lila . . . but then, we weren't moving house when I was pg with Lila!!  laughing2.gif
Congrats to the other girls with BFPs, and here's to a boring 8 months for all of us!  hands.gif
