Hi all, first time on here but needed some advice. We are trying to conceive, this is the first cycle. I'm now 6-7 days PO and feel terrible. For last couple of days I just feel dizzy every time I stand up, feel nauseous, cramp in my lower back and low down at the front feels fuzzy! Boobs feel sensitive. Last night went to eat a cookie (I am the biggest fan of cookies usually), took one bite and didn't want it, the taste was wrong! I'm now only able to eat savoury things, have a horrid taste in my mouth. I hope I'm not being paranoid as not due on my period until 27th. Could I be pregnant or is it all in my head. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Sounds like you have a bug.

To be able to have pregnancy symptoms, you need to have enough hcg in your system to get a positive pregnancy test. At 6dpo even if the egg was fertilised, it is extremely unlikely to have implanted and the symptoms you are describing began around 4dpo.

Pregnant or not it's likely to be a either a bug or in your head as it's way too early. I thought I was pregnant every month when I was ttc, I was just focusing so much on every little thing my body did.

Well 10/11dpo and just got a really faint positive on an Internet cheapie! Will keep testing daily just to make sure but line definitely there! Still having cramps and twinges quite low down and feel dizzy when standing.

I had an iui and had a little bleeding so presumed it hadn't worked. From a week after procedure I felt ill. I'd had an unsuccessful one before so knew I felt different. I got a bfp at 13 days after procedure. So I agree you can feel unwell early. Good luck, I'm currently 17w. Fingers crossed all continues well!
