Sick and odd cat

Been TTC for two years and the consultant said that we're unlikely to conceive without help, but for about 24 hours, I've been nauseous, mildly crampy, tired and my cat will not leave me alone. He is quite affectionate anyway, but this is ott. If he's lifted off me he climbs straight back on. I'm trying not to get my hopes up as there's still five days to go until af but anyone else have their pet experiences to share?

I don't have any experience of this but I'd love your cat to be right! Would absolutely love it!!!

Just got a ten minute break from him - he needed to pee. He's back on top of me again.

peachesarenom Sat 06-Jan-18 22:43:14

Oh! When will you test? Also, what is the cat's name?

My dog wouldn't leave my side one weekend, I find out I was pregnant a few days later!
Fingers crossed for you.

I too would love this if it's true because I have a cat who is normally quite affectionate, but for the last week or so has been quite clingy also and is on me the minute I sit down, following me everywhere and even tonight she stretched out on me and momentarily touched my belly then turned away and went back to sleep, I was like !?!? I never thought about it meaning anything but I had a google after reading your post...it does say cats are very in tune to hormones etc as well as dogs!
I'm currently 13dpo, AF due on Tuesday and I'm having no major AF symptoms yet. I'm feeling tired, some nausea, bloating and cramps and quite wet discharge, a few times I've thought my period has started over the last few days and ran to the toilet and it's been a gush of creamy/watery cm (sorry TMI blush)! I'm trying so hard not to symptom spot as I had a mc in Oct and I had extremely obvious/strong pregnancy symptoms before I got my BFP, but who knows...we could be onto something here with the cat lol!!!

I hope it's a positive for the both of us grin let us know how it turns out! x

Wednesday or Thursday for testing. My cycle has been a day off for the last five months.

He's Alexander. But he'll answer to a few names. He's generally very nice, he's great with kids, doesn't scratch or bite and is quite loving, but he has focused all of this on me. He's going looking for me if I spend too long in the bathroom. I went for a shower last night and he sat outside the door the whole time!

Webster, I'm having exactly the same! Nausea, tired and a shit ton of discharge. Not my usual af symptoms. But I did five months of clomid with no success so it may just be my hormones settling down after that.

peachesarenom Sat 06-Jan-18 22:56:43

Fingers crossed for both of you!

webster144 Sat 06-Jan-18 22:59:31

Pohara I'm trying not to get my hopes up or symptom spot too hard as last month I was pretty convinced I was pregnant again and then the witch appeared sad
I guess I'll see on Tuesday if she appears or not! FX for you this week coming keep us updated grin

In my first pregnancy my cat went right off me!! He was always friendly to me and never a massive fan of my husband, but during that pregnancy he shied away from me and let my husband pet him, which was completely unheard of!

I know what you mean about me Cat. I had a similar experience with my sister in laws dog. When I was pregnant with my little boy her dog wouldn’t let my husband come near me in the first few months! She would growl at him when he tried to even put his arm around me! My cats would just use my growing belly as a pillow but they didn’t appreciate when they would get kicked by the baby haha

This is such a lovely thread! I really hope its good news for you!

Mrstobe90 Mon 08-Jan-18 00:44:38

I hope you get your BFP!!

Madcatter Mon 08-Jan-18 20:23:05

Oh, I'd love it if the cat was on to something! Fingers crossed for you. Do keep us updated!

Dodie66 Thu 11-Jan-18 10:55:56

Any news?

Pohara1 Sat 13-Jan-18 11:52:12

I'm a few days late and terrified to test. If I don't test it's still a possibility.

peachesarenom Sat 13-Jan-18 12:01:06

Oh please test! I want to be the first to congratulate you!

Pumpkin18 Sat 13-Jan-18 12:24:41

@Pohara1 have you tested yet?

LifeOfRiley63 Sat 13-Jan-18 13:07:37

@Pohara1 Test!! Xx

Pohara1 Sun 14-Jan-18 10:53:45

Af arrived with a whole parade. So we're back to the original plan - surgery to remove a blocked tube, few months rest, and IVF.

peachesarenom Sun 14-Jan-18 11:03:29

Oh Pohara1 I'm so sorry! Good luck with the future, keep us updated!

Secondsop Sun 14-Jan-18 11:48:40

Oh no, I’m so sorry @Pohara1 .
