What do you reckon to these symptoms?

Hello all, I'm trying hard not to symptom spot, but failing!!

So since ovulation I have been cramping (I have posted about this recently) and around 7/8 DPO it got worse, stabbing pains. No blood. Also cramping after sex. (Sorry tmi) This is new for me.

I have also had sore breasts, which is usual for me.

I have had dry skin on my elbows, very new and odd. I have been a little tired at nights and backache at nights and when waking. I have had a cold/sore throat. Been a bit more hungry. Not as bloated as I usually am.

I have had a temperature dip at 8 DPO.

I tested this morn, 9/10 DPO, and bfn. It almost looked like there was a line at the edges, but then it faded away.

My cervix seems to be high and feels like my nose, and closed.

Cam anyone help me out-has anyone had symptoms like these and gone on to have BFP?

I am due AF on Monday.

Thanks allsmile

Sore breasts could be a sign, dry elbows etc not so much. A line wouldn't usually fade even if it was faint. Having said that 9/10 dpo is a bit too early to test. More chance of a faint line on 11/12 po but most tests are designed to test the day your period is due and they assume a regular 28 day cycle and 14dpo.

Hope you get the result you want!

I'm 7dpo today and started feeling really sicky this morning my period is due 11th ( 22 day cycle ) which mean as fast as my period finishes I ovulate straight after not sure if that's a good thing. Not sure when to test xx

I see a lot of ladies posting saying that they're having symptoms during the tww that aren't normal for them. I've come to realise that there's no such thing as normal lol symptoms vary so much. I've been having periods for 15 years and only in the last 3 months has sore boobs and bloating become a symptom for me. It's not unusual to have completely new symptoms all the time. During the tww, most, if not all, of the symptoms you feel are down to the normal process of increasing hormone levels after ovulation. Most pregnant women won't feel true pregnancy symptoms until a few weeks into a pregnancy. I'm guilty of symptom spotting and I've had every symptom under the sun but I don't pay attention now because it only gets my hopes up. I think a lot of women think that they had sore boobs and cramps as a pregnancy symptom during the tww and then got a bfp but they would most likely have had those symptoms regardless of whether they ended up pregnant or not. Good luck though, I hope you get your bfp soon smile

Before my AF is due any month I've never had any symptoms. This month since having my coil out last month I'm bloated, been sick this morning, smells knock me sick, xx

Bubblegum89 Sat 04-Mar-17 14:45:05

Was it the coil that releases hormones to prevent pregnancy or the non-hormonal one?

So I took a test this morning, what do you think? I'm pretty sure it came up in the time. I was busy getting ready and then checked back.

Sazwest Mon 06-Mar-17 07:54:55

@irishlass1234 is that a pregnancy test xx

Afreshstartplease Mon 06-Mar-17 07:59:42

Looks positive to me!

irishlass1234 Mon 06-Mar-17 08:24:05

Yep, pregnancy test!! Now I've just got to wait for my period to not come, I don't quite believe it!!!

Sazwest Mon 06-Mar-17 08:28:47

@irishlass1234 congrats hunni 🙂.
I've done a test this morning but was a bfn ( I'm 9dpo) not sure if I'm testing to early: I'm waiting on the 10mlu IC to come today in the post so i can test one of them. Been sick this morning and yesterday morning, borking at the most daftest smells xx

Bubblegum89 Mon 06-Mar-17 09:11:58

In my opinion, 9dpo is too early. I know some women get very early bfp's but it's not very common. Most women actually don't get a bfp until after their missed period. By all mean, test 20 times a day if you really wat to lol but just be prepared to see a lot of negative tests

Yeh I think I'm gonna leave it till closer to my AF date xx
