Hi there I'm TTC no 3. I'm around 7dpo but having lots of symptoms in particular today I have started with heartburn anyone else had this? My back is aching so bad which I never normally suffer from backache pre period. Also boobs are so sore to touch. Not due on till the 27th, stupidly tested today and it was negative but I did it around lunch time and I know you are supposed to use morning urine of testing early. I'm on nights now tonight and tomorrow night so should I wait till Monday to do another test? Help 😪

It's way too early - wait another week and test. No point in stressing yourself out needlessly.

Wait until your period's due. If you're convinced, you're just confirming it anyway.

Yeh I know it's so hard isn't it just can't seem to shift the heartburn has anyone else heard of this as a symptom? Started with it this morning before I'd even eaten

To be honest your hcg levels would be so low at this stage it would be unlikely to be causing any symptoms yet! The blastocyst only implants around 4-7 dpo and it's only then that hcg starts being produced.
Also, I didn't get even a faint line on a test until I was 12dpo when I was pregnant with dd, so save the money and the stress, wait until you are due (or even better, late!) and test then smile

I doubt it is a symptom so early on - more likely a symptom of stress!

I've googled it and it says it can be an early symptom but I suppose so can everything else.

Heartburn is typically associated with later pregnancy as the baby grows and takes up more and more space in the abdominal cavity, but the hormones produced in early pregnancy can also cause heartburn. Progesterone, which relaxes the smooth muscles of the uterus, may also relax the valve between the esophagus and the stomach, allowing stomach acid to travel back up to the esophagus, causing heartburn even in early pregnancy.

I'm also TTC no3 and 7dpo. The only "symptom" I have is cramping on and off and creamy discharge. Boobs slightly tender at times. I'm not testing until 29th. How long have you been trying?

Also I am full of energy and in great form and that would be unusual for me. I'm excited fo find out but not testing early. If I'm not I'll be ok as I have a holiday next month during FW grin

I've only just been suffering with heartburn - started at 30ish weeks! It's way too early for you to have heartburn just yet!
