Hi, thought I'd invite anyone who is 5DPO plus to see how you're getting on. Anyone getting any weird 'symptoms'? I'm overanalysing everything that my body is doing so just interested to hear others views really! I'm 7 DPO.

Over the past few days I've had on and off dull ache in lower belly, on Monday I had bad stomach cramps & diarrhea, on and off fatigue etc. And my boobs are a little tender today but it's not as bad as period boobs.

I know some say it's too early to tell etc. and I get that but for this thread I'm really just looking for anyone to share their current experiences and any 'symptoms'

Hi, I'll join you! I'm 5DPO I think. Definitely feeling more tired than usual the last couple of days. Like you I'm completely overanalysing everything!

It's crazy isn't it!! Every little thing I'm like 👀👀 when I was 2 DPO, I got home and literally passed out on the couch for 2 hours, which is very unlike me. Zonked and then was so grouchy when my husband got home from work at 10.15pm😂!! Even with my boobs every night I'm searching for signs of prominent veins - the fact I'm 'searching' for them says it all lol.

Hello! Can I join?? 5dpo I think. Majorly symptom spotting! Have felt a few crampy twinges but I think I get that a bit post O anyway. Slightly different symptoms have been prickly nipples (starting today); wave of dizzy (yesterday) and metallic taste (today). Obviously probs nothing and just me being super 👀 👀 👀!!

Millie2008 Thu 21-Mar-19 19:09:49

When are you guys planning to test??

Daydreamer71 Thu 21-Mar-19 19:12:28

I'll confess... I actually just did a test tonight lol! I couldn't help myself as they just arrived in the post and were waiting for me when I got home - was obviously a BFN, but will test again late next week at 12DPO. Luckily I didn't waste the expensive digital one tonight haha!

Millie2008 Thu 21-Mar-19 19:16:31

Arg- you’re like me! Got some cheapies in the post today and was tempted even though only 5dpo. Ridiculous 🤣 determined to wait until Sunday... (come on will power!)

RandomUsernameHere Thu 21-Mar-19 19:18:06

I'm going to try and hold out until 14dpo if I can! Help me stay strong!

RandomUsernameHere Thu 21-Mar-19 19:19:45

I've also got ICs (one step I think, from Amazon). Do you think they're any good?

Daydreamer71 Thu 21-Mar-19 19:19:49

I'm definitely no use with will power 😂😂 but maybe I'll just be the example to you both about getting BFNs when you test way too soon haha

Millie2008 Thu 21-Mar-19 19:32:47

Ha! I’ll be really impressed if you can last until 14dpo. But obviously the sensible thing to do. Not sure about the IC’s tbh; this is my first time trying them so we’ll see...

Can I join? The digital ovulation thingy said I was ovulating on Sunday. DTD on Sat & Sun but couldn't be arsed on Monday grin.

I've been having what feels like my ovaries knotting for the last two days and have dull back ache (bit like kidney pain). Also really over sensitive to food smells, oh, and shattered. But I think that's because my youngest woke up with a nightmare last night...

We're TTC #3 but my older two are nearly 8 and 5.5....I have totally forgotten my symptoms with them!

Me too can't test for another week but I have sore boobs and can't stop eating bocks of cheese? Never eaten it like this before only on pizza etc

Millie2008 Fri 22-Mar-19 09:11:27

So how’s everyone feeling today? I’m 6dpo and unusual symptoms seemed to have vanished sad hopefully not a bad sign.

RandomUsernameHere Fri 22-Mar-19 09:42:51

Same here, feeling pretty normal this morning! I thought I had a metallic taste in my mouth last night, but may have been psychological after reading about it here 😂 I'm estimated 6DPO too although not properly tracking.

Daydreamer71 Fri 22-Mar-19 09:43:54

@Millie2008 I'm sure it's not! I'm feeling ok, boobs still a bit tender, have been off my food quite a bit (which isn't too unlike me), I literally just want to eat crisps and cakes and not a proper meal!! Feel like I'm having mood swings as well, I really just wanted to pick a fight with my husband last night lol... But again don't know if I'm reading into it!

TimeIhadaNameChange Fri 22-Mar-19 09:48:26

Supposedly I'm 3dpo, but I've been having symptoms since Monday!!!!! A light ache in my tummy, sore boobs and tender nipples, and last night I was really uncomfortable in bed. I think my body's simply playing tricks on me. I'm not sure how I'm going to suvive the next ten days!

Daydreamer71 Fri 22-Mar-19 15:52:57

Am I going crazy here!! I think so!! I am so so tired, I feel like I'm going to fall asleep at my desk and I cannot focus on anything at all. I have a crap headache and I do feel a little sick as well. Not knowing is driving me crazy so I just don't know if I'm just generally feeling run down today or is this it! Urrergh

Gothqueen Fri 22-Mar-19 16:39:39

Can I join? I'm 11 dpo and having some of the same symptoms you have described and have been having them a fair few days. I've been getting left sided pelvic pain, cramps and lower backache. Feel like I could sleep for ever and I'm like a pac-man eating everything in front of me! Did a test yesterday (as couldn't resist) and of course was BFN.
AF due Monday but having no usual symptoms such as mood swings or skin breakouts. Have everything crossed for us all 🤞🤞🤞

Proudmummy88 Fri 22-Mar-19 16:53:19

Hi everyone. I got a big smiley face on Saturday so think I'm about 5dpo now. I am having cramps and am EXHAUSTED but apart form that nothing. I'm testing when I am late if af has not shown up. I usually have every preg symptom for a week before and then af normally shows her ugly face. Feels so frustrating.

Millie2008 Fri 22-Mar-19 17:26:40

Well if you’re going crazy daydreamer than so am I! 😂 taking so much willpower not to do a test, haha! Our bodies are so cruel aren’t they - I think the increasing progesterone up to AF mimicks preggo symptoms sad I’ve been feeling irritable and emosh this afternoon (poor parter!)

RandomUsernameHere Sat 23-Mar-19 06:52:51

I have a confession... just tested and got a BFN. After saying I would wait until 14 DPO! 😂

Daydreamer71 Sat 23-Mar-19 09:24:48

@RandomUsernameHere haha!! Join the club. No judgements here! I ordered some FRERs on amazon prime last neight 😂😂 gonna take one tomorrow morning and I don't even care 😬

RandomUsernameHere Sat 23-Mar-19 11:07:54

@Daydreamer71 fingers crossed for you for tomorrow!!!

Millie2008 Sat 23-Mar-19 12:44:15

Yes good luck daydreamer!! How many dpo will you be? I'm getting confused! Random - obvs too early (but you know that!) - fingers crossed for your BFP in a few days time! And of course no judgement from me either - I'm blatantly testing tomorrow at 8dpo - silly, silly silly!
Only symptoms today are tired and upset stomach -- obvs both of those things could be anything grin
