Symptom spotting! Surely not!

Can anyone talk to me and tell me if this is psychosomatic, or if anyone's experienced the same and went on to get a bfp! I'm only 4dpo but 2 days ago I had a lot of sharp pains and dragging in the bottom of my stomach, yesterday I felt very "aware" of my boobs, like they were bigger and felt full. That's not the case today, but tonight they were tingling and now feel tender along the bottom. Now I know the mechanics of conception and implantation so technically this would not be symptoms because it's far too early, but my boobs only ever feel slightly achy in the 3/4 days leading up to AF, which is 11 days away. Any thoughts? It's such a head f**k this 2ww!

Hi tobermory I'm in a very similar situation. I just posted about it yesterday.

jmariehac Wed 15-Mar-17 06:40:45

Hi Rockie just read your thread, it's so frustrating isn't it! How are you feeling today?

Hi jmariehac Congratulations, and thanks for your reply, gives me hope it's possible!

Felt so sick last night at bedtime, fine today tho, not one symptom so far!

Hi! I'm CD21, not sure about DPO because I'm so irregular but my boobs are so so sore and everything tastes metallic (and I'm super hungry). I know it's so early so no point in testing but I really want to blush. I think sometimes you just know - no matter about the CD/DPO. Good luck op keep us posted x

tobermory29 Thu 16-Mar-17 09:36:16

Thanks rose, wish I did just "know" but I've got it wrong before so I'm sure this time will be no different. Every day is such a drag just waiting to test. Are you testing soon?

Alicium Thu 16-Mar-17 09:45:48

Hey, I got a BFP on Tuesday 9DPO, and I had the pains that you're describing in my abdomen. I was seriously bloated for about a week and then from about 6DPO I had period-like cramps.
My boobs have been fine but I don't really get any boob ache before AF anyway.
I think I felt pregnant before taking the test, I had to talk myself down a few times in the 2WW because I was getting too excited. Fingers crossed for you!

NaturWilde Thu 16-Mar-17 10:14:07

Am 3dpo and already at it!

Increased urination, ever so slightly tender breasts...

With first DC I had morning sickness from around 12dpo, symptoms can show early.

roselondoner Thu 16-Mar-17 12:35:42

Hey tober yeah I tested last night and saw something very faint after the time window so I'm sure it means nothing but am gonna grab some more and test again!! 🙈 when are you going to test? How's the symptom spotting today?

tobermory29 Thu 16-Mar-17 12:37:23

Oooh Congratulations Alicium, how exciting! I know what you mean, I feel particularly positive this month and have to keep reminding myself to calm down as it's probably going to be like every other month! Some months I'm absolutely fine, can just go about my day and wait and see, but I'm going to come down with a crash this month if negative!
Also had the bloated feeling at the same time as the pains, never had anything like that before, felt as though there was a big ball inside my stomach, but went away after a couple of days same as the pains.

Fingers crossed for you NaturWilde, I'm guessing we'll be testing around the same time smile

tobermory29 Thu 16-Mar-17 12:44:32

Keeping everything crossed for you rose, best of luck to you, keep us updated please.

"Officially" testing next Wednesday, but will probably start Monday! Lol!
No symptoms for the last couple of days, bit of queasiness maybe but that could be anything, only 6dpo so would be approaching implantation I guess if there was anything happening. Hope you're back with some good news smile

roselondoner Thu 16-Mar-17 20:34:26

I caved guys. I'm weak. I'm only 6/7dpo so don't know what I was expecting. I thought I could see a VERY faint line but not showing up on pic sad there's no line is there? this is a BFN. Good luck ladies hope your symptom spots continue z

tobermory29 Thu 16-Mar-17 23:10:50

Can't see a line rose but don't be despondent, as you say, if you're only 6/7po then it doesn't mean anything. Just try again in a couple of days, and even that's early, I wouldn't be convinced by a bfn until I was actually due AF. Positive thoughts all round.

NaturWilde Tue 21-Mar-17 13:06:27

Any news? I'm now 8dpo and have a little brown CM...implantation!? Plus sore nipples, but only slight, for the past 5 days or so.

tobermory29 Tue 21-Mar-17 13:58:17

Hi NaturWilde that sounds good, hope that it is implantation for you! When you testing? I tested this morning, bfn, but not surprised, I'm 10/11dpo so a little early anyway. No real symptoms, urinating a lot, around every 3 hrs which is unusual for me, slightly tingly boobs which comes and goes, and a dragging feeling along the bottom of my stomach like a stitch when I stand up! Have no idea what that is! But's it's sore! Lol!

NaturWilde Tue 21-Mar-17 15:17:26

Fingers x for you @tobermory29!!

NaturWilde Tue 21-Mar-17 15:20:06

This shows when you're more likely to get a positive!

I've at least 4 more days to wait...! Have loads of ICs though so may test when I get home confused

roselondoner Tue 21-Mar-17 15:24:15

Ahhh tober that sounds brill fingers crossed! I tested today too - again probs too early and something showed up but it's a very thin line so I reckon it's just evapsad

jmariehac Tue 21-Mar-17 16:11:01

I used IC and got negatives bit postive woth other brands pic was 11dpo just so anyone using IC don't just rely on that result alone ...good luck all xxx

NaturWilde Tue 21-Mar-17 16:47:14

Ok! I obviously tested. Definite brown spotting. Light. And 7/8dpo. I know I know!! BFN on both IC and OPK!!

roselondoner Tue 21-Mar-17 17:27:21

Why are we so unable to control ourselves?! I tested again too!!! ICs giving me nothing - Sainsbury's ones giving me thin line....what does it mean!!!

jmariehac Tue 21-Mar-17 17:40:14

See my post rise same I'm. Not nearly 12 weeks xx

NaturWilde Tue 21-Mar-17 17:42:08

Never understood the silliness of testing early....*until now*!!!

NaturWilde Tue 21-Mar-17 17:42:48

@roselondoner I think that means a positive...??! Pic!

jmariehac Tue 21-Mar-17 17:43:44
