Hello ladies, currently TTC and am 8 DPO, and i feel like im losing it! Have loads of symptoms, sore boobs, headaches, nausea, tiredness, and also really thirsty Nd feeling warmer than normal, but I know all of those things could have perfectly normal, non pregnancy related explanations. It's so hard! I caved this morning and tested (I know it's early) but bfn, gonna test again in a day or so. Anyone with me?

Unfortunately I think the more you convince yourself of the symptoms the more appear 😂 I was exactly the same as you last month and af turned up 10 days late!!! This month I'm have a full ache in my stomach in the mornings and then fine in the afternoon only 4 days dpo so fingers crossed!

8dpo and I'm with you. I'm going mad symptom spotting! Sore boobs, frequent urination, odd pulling sensations etc. I know it could be anything and I'm reading into it all too much as its too early to really be noticing much but I can't stop. Stupidly tested this morning with an internet cheapie test and bfn as to be expected. Fingers crossed for you op

Joining in on the madness-I'm about 9dpo. Ive had cramps in lower abdomen for the past 4 days. I had a funny dizzy spell 2 days ago and have been really nauseous from lunchtime to teatime today. I feel as though af is due but not due on until Monday/Tuesday next week (Ovia suggests monday week, but I've ov'd early) Time will tell confused

Nice to know I'm not alone! It's so easy to read into every little symptom isn't it? I keep getting weird twinges too, and have gone off coffee which is very unlike me. Fingers crossed we all get good results soon smile

So when is everyone planning on testing? I'm going to try and hold off until Sunday even though it's still early but my will power is rubbish when it comes to testing!

user1493122015 Thu 18-May-17 15:10:35

Af isn't due until next Friday 😠 I'm so impaitent will wait until say weds to test I think!

Hi op,

I know how you feel. I'm broody and I keep thinking I have pregnancy symptoms. Oh thinks I'm crazy.

I have done two tests even the period not due till 8 days.

I hope you get the result you want

RubyRoo222 Thu 18-May-17 17:37:39

My plan was for Saturday, but if I'm honest I'll probably test before that. No self control! Or just a glutton for punishment

issy2165 Thu 18-May-17 17:39:46

I've just had the tiniest spot of blood, hoping it's implantation bleeding as af isn't due for a good 8 days yet🙄

DovahBee11 Thu 18-May-17 18:26:07

issy fingers crossed for you. ruby Me too, not due to till Wednesday but I won't make it that far without testing for sure so figure Sunday is a good compromise grin Good luck to everyone!

issy2165 Thu 18-May-17 20:58:42

I hate the pill it's completely screwed my body upsad when I came off of the coil I got pregnant within a month no problems! And now it's taking months and months! I'm only 21 as well I should be in my prime!

DovahBee11 Thu 18-May-17 23:15:46

How long have you been trying Issy? Hopefully your body returns to normal soon, this trying to conceive lark is bloody frustrating!

RubyRoo222 Fri 19-May-17 06:32:05

Just did a clear blue early detection....bfn sad think I'm out. Af due Tuesday, it shouldve picked something up right?

issy2165 Fri 19-May-17 06:40:29

I personally don't trust them at all! Don't loose hope!

issy2165 Fri 19-May-17 06:41:09

I stopped taking it end of February ☹️

DovahBee11 Fri 19-May-17 09:50:10

You're not out til af shows up. It could well be that you'll not get a positive until you're late. It was like that with my eldest, didn't know til I was late. I'd also suggest using frer if you can get hold of some.

issy2165 Fri 19-May-17 17:09:51 use this it's helped me work things out!!

RubyRoo222 Fri 19-May-17 17:28:24

Thanks for your encouragement ladies. Issy that calender has made me feel much better! I didn't really allow for a 30 day cycle, pretty sure ov was day 17 so it is still early. Panic over! I've also spent like an hour today obsessively googling forums full of people that haven't had bfps until much later blush

issy2165 Fri 19-May-17 17:30:56

See don't get in a panic! I have to wait until at least Wednesday 😢

DovahBee11 Sat 20-May-17 11:27:20

I caved and tested this morning. Very very faint positive on an ic. Going to get a frer and check with that before I get to excited. Fingers crossed for everyone else!

issy2165 Sat 20-May-17 11:31:58

Woo congratulations hope it's a definite bfp!! I caved bfn but I'm only 10dpo 😂 moron over here👎

DovahBee11 Sat 20-May-17 11:36:43

I'm deffo gonna do a frer before I get to excited grin Hoping this is your month Issy!

issy2165 Sat 20-May-17 11:37:49

Me too. I feel different this month and I'm 99% sure I've had implantation bleeding that was yesterday mind 😂

RubyRoo222 Sat 20-May-17 11:43:51
