Hiya I'm hoping to be pregnant - testing on wednesday.
Until then I'm symptom spotting grin
Apart from Late AF, sore boobs, sickness and exhaustion did you have any other pregnancy signs?

My DS is 13 months and I didn't really have any signs with him till I was about 7 weeks.

hi everyone, im confused so need advice hopefully someone can help me. I have the implant fitted and have had it in for 3 years now its due to be taken out in 2 weeks, ive still been having unprotected sex as I assumed it would still be working but recently ive been getting a lot of symptoms. for the past 7 months all my periods have been regular but I haven't had one since a month ago I only realised how late I was the other day because I started noticing changes to my body.
around about three weeks ago I started getting a creamy white discharge, a lot of it and its everyday, I then started getting headaches, heartburn, slight nausea and heightened sense of smell. my breasts don't look any bigger but they feel a lot heavier. im constantly tired and waking up sweating even though I feel cold a lot of the time, my emotions are all over the place atm but I put that down to time off the month but ive still not came on my period.
last week I had horrible cramping pains in my lower stomach and have constant backache so starting to get worried could this mean im pregnant????

Hi Yes me! My 'period' came on day 19 of my very regular 28 cycle, much lighter than normal, I have had extremely sore boobs this week, my normal period would have been due tomorrow, have done a test every day but negative so far. Dont want to get my hopes up. I have a daughter, didn't know I was pregnant with her only tested a week after I was due just remember having pmt symptoms, my now husband said I was a bit of a bitch too haha :-) I know some people don't test positive until later in the pregnancy but I can't help thinking thats a minority, perhaps my cycle has just got out of sync, I guess only time will tell, Good luck Hattie xx

Hi guys
I'm new on here so don't know if I'm in the right bit!!

I had unprotected sex on 6th April, was sick on 7th! Came on what I thought was a period in 16th April, (normally lasts 7days heavy for 4) however this time I was very light an the blood was brown/black an was them off 18th so only 3days. After this I've been very bloated, been having cramps that feel like period cramps, been getting bad headaches, and feeling sick. Taken 2 hpt and they both came back negative. Unsure whether it is just in my head..

Would like if anyone can relate??

Im still showing BFN, still have sore boobs and a bit of cramping, I am very regular usually get AF on a Thurs night so would say 5 days before at the moment , going to do a early first response tomorrow morning. I'm not holding my breath though think it might just be hormones and wishful thinking :-(

beebop100 Sun 20-Apr-14 12:22:05

Also tiredness, chin spots, period type pains going right into vagina

beebop100 Sun 20-Apr-14 12:16:56

Cried on the bus at a song on my iPod, cried in a cafe when telling husband about crying on the bus, sent hubby a furious text at 2am because he was snoring (he was right next to me!), constipation, SORE boobs, one stonking headache. I'm now 5 weeks.

Mummytobeforthefirsttime Sat 19-Apr-14 14:19:45

I tested on the Monday before my AF was due on the Saturday as I had had chronic headaches and wanted to take strong painkillers, I got a really faint line on the Monday, 5 days before AF due. I just a had a feeling I was pregnant. The test lines got stronger everyday after that.

Good luck!

so I have been trying a bit for a few months now(not particularly strict on dates etc) AF due next Thurs but this monday starting cramping then bleeding, a bit worried as only day 19 of cycle (usually quite regular) now think it maybe was implantation bleed but not sure, still spotting, am quite tired, went to bed last night at 9.30pm and also fell asleep on sofa this afternoon, have done a test each morning for last couple of days but BFN have stocked up and will keep testing each morning until I get a proper period or BFP. Boobs are quite sore also, also had quite a few spots last few weeks. This wait is torture! Just would like to know either way, had to cancel night out tonight just in case (although feel too knackered to be hitting the town!)

Hot flushes & extreme tiredness during the day.

Frogcatcher Sat 29-Mar-14 18:32:56

Done a test & it was BFN. Phew! We may want another but I wasn't thinking just yet!

Me23 Sat 29-Mar-14 16:38:30

I didn't hav any signs until 8 weeks but I just knew I ass pregnant even before af was due.

MissHobart Sat 29-Mar-14 16:35:55

Frog - keep us updated! grin

Frogcatcher Sat 29-Mar-14 15:20:50

Oh dear. This is not making comfortable reading! I've been laid up in bed all day with what I thought was flu but a little thought popped into my head from nowhere that maybe I was pregnant & it's morning sickness as I have terrible stomach cramping too. DS is only 12 weeks old shock
I didn't really have it with him except occasionally feeling like I had a hangover late afternoon. I was charting so tested before I even got AF last time whereas this time I haven't even had a period yet. I've also got greasy hair which I got with DS. Boob symptoms difficult to spot as I'm BF so nipples tingle anyway when he wants a feed. Guess I'd better dig out those tests before I totally freak out OH!

ImBrian Thu 27-Mar-14 17:03:24

Forgot to say I always cramp like af is coming and get sore boobs but not tht bad.

ImBrian Thu 27-Mar-14 16:59:28

Dc1 - nothing at all just realised my period was Mia, dc2 and 3 I tested really early and can't remember any symptoms, dc 4 I kept falling asleep and was exhausted. This baby I had implantation pain/headache,dry mouth and then my cervix went back high! I've also had 2 miscarriages, the first I realised I was pregnant as I felt sick and the 2nd I had a dry mouth and high cervix.

eepie Thu 27-Mar-14 13:33:18

Main/only symptom before missed period was that my boobs were sore and hot to the touch - whereas apparently normally (when not pregnant) breasts are always slightly cool. Positive pregnancy test the next day after I noticed this !

Rosebud29 Thu 27-Mar-14 12:19:36

Sore boobles was the first thing. Extreme fatigue set in at about 6-7 weeks. The fatigue was harder to deal with than the nausea. Heightened sense of smell in the very early weeks. I'm prone to bloaty tummy anyway but it got much worse very early in pregnancy, I was in maternity jeans at 10wks and struggled to hide my tummy.

hoboken Tue 25-Mar-14 14:40:09

A strange, metallic taste in my mouth. Feeling exhausted and sick.

Candycrush, I found this link pretty handy for abbreviations: www.babymed.com/pregnancy-fertility-abbreviations-acronyms

Candycrush75 Mon 03-Mar-14 15:42:46

Hi I'm new here but wanted to join this discussion. I'm a bit confused with all these abbreviations lol but I'm sure I will pick it up..maybe someone could help me out there.
Well I had mirena removed on 10th Feb after 10 years (had another one fitted) my youngest (twins) are 11 and I'm feeling bit anxious that I could be preg. Only did the do once and no idea when I would ovulate. Had a bleed after coil removed but didn't last long. Now I'm feeling sick, headache for last 4 days, weird taste in my mouth, sore boobs, cramping, tired, off food. Did a test but it's neg. prob too early to tell but how do I know when to do a test??? Any advice welcome x

Longlive2014 Mon 24-Feb-14 17:14:47

crying, tired, sore tingly numb boobs... on day af due I had morning sickness

CestelloAnnunciation Mon 24-Feb-14 16:22:15

Went off booze and fags with DC1 grin. had done several pregnancy tests, as period was slightly late, but all came back negative. Went to the pub with DH and ordered a G&T and went to light up a ciggie (shows how long ago it was) and instantly dry wretched and the smell of booze and cigs. Got another test from the late night chemist and hey presto...up duffed I was.

With DC2, I had to stop the car on the way home one day to be violently sick. Alarm bells rang, did a test...pregnant with DC2

Iona1651 Mon 24-Feb-14 16:19:48

I had sore gums and my urine smelt very strong. Just did a test in case I was - expecting a BPN - but surprise BFP!
That very morning I'd been sat in a surgeon's office to get the results of my laparoscopy and told to get a referral to a fertility clinic asap because of my age! Was a weird day telling my fiancé the news from the surgeon in the morning then our good news that evening!

Dazedconfused Mon 24-Feb-14 16:10:17

I had had really strange spotting etc early Jan and thought it was weird AF but anoint a week after stopped I went to work and realised I had completely forgotten to put a bra on while getting dressed (not the kind of body shape that can get away with that) laughed a lot about this after!!!! and then I was sick after lunch...did a test the following morning and it was bfp and using dating one worked out was about 6 weeks gone.

moonbear27 Mon 24-Feb-14 15:15:50

Been feeling nauseous, dizzy, mild headaches, horrible metallic taste. AF not due till 7th March. Can't bear not knowing!
