Manic symptom watching!

Hi all,

This is a place for all manic symptom watchers to share stories and convince themselves they have each other's symptoms! Nothing like a healthy dose of mania to ease the real anxiety and worry ttc can cause!

I myself have just recently started ttc and have seen myself go from a fully rounded adult to a manic symptom checker.
So today's symptom is a pinchy like pain in my left lower abdomen...could be wind...but a manic symptom checker...I'm convincing myself it's a sign of implantation!
I will share a new one everyday. Please add your own...I want to have them too&!

Oh! I love symptom spotting!

I had a very vivid nightmare last night so I am wondering about that. smile I think my poking will make my boobs sore, so that'll be tomorrow's symptom sorted ;)

How many dpo are you. I am 7 today.

Ohhhhhhh ill join. Today I had a heavy feeling in the bottom of my stomach (could be I ate too much lunch) but obviously I convinced myself its a symptom then stated calculating possible due dates! I have completely gone mad!

Found this just thread at just the right time - driving myself mad thinking I'm pregnant simply because I had a back ache at what I think was 6dpo, and I feel extra hungry today (10dpo). Being doing this but with diff symptoms for more months than I care to remember!

Have a cold at the moment so not able to symptom spot as much as normal but today have had mild heartburn which Google tells me can be a symptom! Also slightly itchy nipples!

Tammisaurus Wed 01-Oct-14 21:35:12

I am a self confessed symptom watcher!!!
I had the same today pinchy twinges left side lower abdo.
Part of me is convinced its implantation the other part of me thinks I'm being crazy and to stop winding myself up to a frenzy haha.

Happy to know I'm not the only one who is doing this hahaha.

Dmmac2014 Wed 01-Oct-14 21:36:50

It's reassuring isn't it?! I get so cross with myself for convincing myself on such little (or non-existent) evidence!

wanttobeamummyin2015 Thu 02-Oct-14 06:46:58

I had really itchy boobs yesterday! Not nipples, actual boob. And a low down back ache. But I am either 9dpo or 1dpo (no good at checking this EWCM business!)

Tammisaurus Thu 02-Oct-14 07:13:10

Lets see what symptoms today will bring!

Pixa Thu 02-Oct-14 07:26:25

I have had really vivid dreams for the past four nights now, one of them was even pregnancy related. That's a sure sign, right?! wink

Tammisaurus Thu 02-Oct-14 09:02:04

pixa its totally a sign! Everytime I turn the Tele on its about a baby or pregnancy related things. I'm taking that as a sign haha.

....4 nights in a row of getting up for the loo in the night, which I never do. But not last night. Constant low level cramping for about 5 days. Oh, and I seem to be completely unable to stop googling symptoms! That's a symptom of its own, right? And now I've got spots. I usually get one per AF so I'm not sure about that one. All this even though as a grown adult I am fully aware that most people get no symptoms....

AF due sun /mon. I think I'm going to crack and test on sun. Until then...gah!

Tammisaurus Thu 02-Oct-14 10:02:13

Oooh I have noticed that I am peeing all the time at the moment! During the night, throughout the day. I feel I need to go loads but nothing much comes out. Hmmm.....9 more days to wait. What can I do to pass the time?? Ahh google my old friend. Haha!

passthesaltplease Thu 02-Oct-14 10:09:20

Another manic symptom-spotter here. 5dpo and I've had a sort of dull ache/pressure in my lower abdo for the past couple of days. My boobs were super itchy yesterday evening, and I've got lower backache.

I'm trying not to get my hopes up, especially since it's so early, but it's really hard not to!

hopefull2424 Thu 02-Oct-14 13:24:17

Ok im back again to report todays host of symptoms.
Last night i managed to convince myself that sneezing lots is a symptom (only to wake up to a stinking cold today sad )
feeling very hungry today and thinking about ttc and symptoms all day (which is obviously a symtpom in itself)

Should probably point out that last month I managed to convince myself that no symptoms ... was actually a symptom.

Tammisaurus Thu 02-Oct-14 13:35:43

So I just got elbowed in the boob and I actually wanted to cry!! I guess my boobs are tender haha! I was doing so well not thinking about it and now all I can do is think about it again. Am I? Aren't I?
I think my body is playing evil tricks on me!

pinkie1982 Thu 02-Oct-14 13:45:15

I have that same pain on the left and have done since suspected ovulation last Friday.

boulie Thu 02-Oct-14 15:03:09

Perfect thread!

I think I've actually gone mad. I've been manically googling symptoms etc.. Oops!

AF is due on tues but I've had cramps, constipation, needing to wee loads, sore nipples and crazy vivid dreams.

I had convinced myself that I was pg but did a test this morning and got a BFN! Then I started to bleed a little. Instead of being a same rational person and accepting that AF is coming early, I started looking up implantation bleeding.. Oh dear..

Tammisaurus Thu 02-Oct-14 15:21:51

boulie sounds like you'll fit in just right in this thread haha.
We are all doing the same and driving ourselves crazy with it.
Welcome to the mad house haha

Pixa Thu 02-Oct-14 16:00:04

I am shattered - it is another sign that I am blatantly pregnant. Haha. The tiredness is nothing to do with jetlag or being back at work following a two and a half week break...

How early can I test?!!!

hopefull2424 Thu 02-Oct-14 17:25:11

Ohhhhh someone needs to make me see sense. 20 new pg tests have just landed through my door. I might get dh to hide them

Tammisaurus Thu 02-Oct-14 17:42:43

I resisted temptation to buy some today!!

Viewofhedges Thu 02-Oct-14 18:29:17

I'm not going to buy any. No. I will not. Surely I can hold on until next week and not poas. I've never poased before. Surely I don't want to go out and buy some tomorrow for use on Saturday which is when according to several Internet calculators I could test. No. No...... Luckily I live a long way away from civilisation and can't just pop out and get one but I WANT TO. Make it Monday already!

Alisvolatpropiis Thu 02-Oct-14 18:48:00

I feel exactly the same as you all!

Unusually tired - pregnant
Rock hard boobs - pregnant
Sensitive to smells - pregnant (nothing to do with the fact it was a truly unpleasant smell, oh no!)

Suppose I'll find out on Sunday(ish) when AF does/n't make an appearance. Will probably wait until next weekend to test though. Just in case my cycle has randomly lengthened, just to spite me.
