Ok so I'm 7dpo and feeling really irritable and teary. When I was pregnant (miscarriage) I didn't get any pms symptoms so I'm assuming this means AF will be on her way next week. Anyone feel like this and still get their BFP??? Clutching at straws now but trying to keep myself positive x

Yes i have felt like this around that time, i still do. I had a bfn at 7dpo, even at 9dpo it was 100% blank white. I got faint bfps yesterday (10dpo) and a slightly darker bfp today (11dpo). Ive been cramping too. 7dpo is still so so early so dont count yourself out just yet flowers

Thanks @HoneyCake86 that does help to cheer me up a little lol. What test did you test with? I have ic in the cupboard but don't want to test until at least 10dpo as I know I'm letting myself in for heartache if I do. I'm having really really light cramps and my right breast is throbbing too but all this is usual for me during a tww from what I can remember! Know it could all be something or nothing as the rational side of my brain keeps reminding me that pregnancy symptoms cannot possible start this early or usual 2ww symptoms stop but just feel so not pregnant and down today. Very sad about my miscarriage too :'( x

AF due on Tuesday and been having period like cramps for the past 4-5 days. I'm sure it is just the start of AF as have had no other 'pregnancy' type symptoms sad

@greeny506 I had no symptoms apart from feeling like AF was going to arrive, didn't test till 9 days last as couldn't face another BFN, 11 week old DD is current snoring on me

@mamabear05 sorry to hear about miscarriage thanks

We're all here for you @mamabear05 when are you 10dpo? Xx

mamabear05 Sun 21-Jan-18 19:01:48

@greeny506 have you tested at all yet? A frer would be pretty reliable by now for you. I'm not due AF till next Sunday so still a long wait for me sad

mamabear05 Sun 21-Jan-18 19:02:59

Thank you @ew1990 I'm hoping all these AF symptoms will stop even if just to stop reminding me every few hours that's she's probably on her way!

Hoping for a bfp for you mamabear!
I'm also 7dpo so I feel like I have a way to go. I foolishly tested today and got a very very pale line.... my heart stopped.....

....I realised I'd used an ovulation stick and not a pregnancy test. No testing until Friday now which is when my period is due 😂

A lot of early pregnancy symptoms can be the same as pmt ones. I felt exactly like my period was on its way - sore boobs, irritable and emotional, stomach ache - but then af didn’t turn up and I got a positive test result when I was 2 days late! I was convinced I wasn’t pregnant this time!

HoneyCake86 Sun 21-Jan-18 19:42:32

I use ic’s but on 10dpo got a v v v faint shadow-like line on them. Since then i have used frers. The ic’s are wayyyy fainter than the frers xx

greeny506 Sun 21-Jan-18 20:29:22

@mamabear05 haven't tested yet as don't want to get hopes up or waste a test! Did OPK testing for first time this month so not sure how it will go!

greeny506 Sun 21-Jan-18 20:42:54

@mamabear05 you made me do a test! Trying to save my FRER but I think - if I squint! - I can see the beginning of a line... anyone...?!

mamabear05 Sun 21-Jan-18 20:58:10

@Owlpatrol I'm only 10dpo according to ff on Wednesday, it seems so far away. Really feel like I'm out this month. Know it probably sounds really silly but I do wanted to get a bfp as somehow it would have made the miscarriage a little less painful! Daft I know since if we do ever get blessed with a bfp again I know I'm going to be a nervous wreck wondering if it will stick lol.

@RowenaDedalus thank you. I wish us all the very best of luck. New year...would be nice 👍🏻

@HoneyCake86 thank you. My plan is to take a ic on 10/11/12 dpo but back up with a frer if I see anything.

mamabear05 Sun 21-Jan-18 20:59:48

@greeny506 oh I really hope that's a bfp for you!!! We need this to be a lucky thread!!! I can't quite make out a second line from the photo but I have terribly puffy eyes this evening from all the self-pity haha. Do a frer tomorrow and post with your up-date, I'll keep everything crossed!!!! As @HoneyCake86 says the ics are much fainter xx

mamabear05 Sun 21-Jan-18 21:01:02

And @Owlpatrol thank you. I do appreciate it. Just chatting has lifted my spirits a little xx

HoneyCake86 Sun 21-Jan-18 21:06:10

Greeny i see something. But its so faint i dunno if my eyes are decieving me. Fx for you!

Even if you dont get a bfp at 10dpo mama, all my kids before i found out around my period due date. Try to stay positive 💐

greeny506 Sun 21-Jan-18 21:13:45

This appeared within a couple of minutes!! I called my husband back from the gym.... I can't quite believe it - not sure if I do as it's not a FRER! Help!

mamabear05 Sun 21-Jan-18 21:17:24

@greeny506 now that's a line!!!!! Is that the same test or a new one??? Oh my gosh I'm so excited for you!!!!! Congratulations in anticipation xx

greeny506 Sun 21-Jan-18 21:18:59

@mamabear05 same test but it seemed to get darker within the few minutes I was holding it around to the light in every direction! My bath has gotten cold as I've just been staring at it!!! 😃
Planning on doing a FRER tomorrow morning and will update. FX for everyone else xxx

greeny506 Sun 21-Jan-18 21:20:12

@mamabear05 thanks for making me do a test!

mamabear05 Sun 21-Jan-18 21:20:32

mamabear05 Sun 21-Jan-18 21:21:02
