AF due in 5 days...

AF due in 5 days and my body can’t decide what it’s doing this month!

So ovulation was on the 4th (confirmed with OPKs)

9th (5dpo) I had A LOT of creamy discharge which was also pink tinged and I woke up with a horrible head ache, sore & full boobs started too

10th (6dpo) - discharge dried up, boobs still sore and fuller!

11th (7dpo) - I was woken up early hours with really bad hunger pains, like I hadn’t eaten for a year, debated having to get up and eat and some ungodly hour I was that hungry, towards the middle of the day I was really nauseated! Still have sore and a lot more full boobs

12, today (8dpo) - boobs are still sore and full, stairs are a killer I have to hold them still 😂 I had loose stool this am (sorry tmi) but now I’m constipated?😂

Can AF just hurry up now and put me out of my misery!?

Also forgot to mention I’ve been having on and off pinching pains in my lower stomach too for the past few days!

@Hayleigh00 I'm currently 6DPO and normally now I start with AF cramps that stop when AF arrives but this month I haven't got that today I'm abit bloated and some sort of strange feeling in my stomach and back ache my boobs are killing me too and my CM has been really watery since day after ovulation x

@FearnRJ Im in the same boat as you, but dh had a vasectomy 9 yrs ago so would be a big surprise if I am. 4 days til period due so I'll find out soon or if I'm just reading too much into my symptoms.

FearnRJ Mon 12-Aug-19 16:35:03

@Hayleigh00 how long have you been TTC? This is our 2nd cycle and didn't DTD much only on the day of ovulation and 4 days before so not expecting to be this month.

@GooodMythicalMorning it's so hard not to symptom stop I said I wouldn't do it after disappointment last month but here I am doing it again 🤣 x

I feel like I'm going nuts too waiting!

I'm due AF on fri/sat and I'm feeling so sick all the time. Just wondering if it's all in my head. Got very veiny boobs but I often get this in the week leading up to af. Had some weird abdo twinges but they could be to do with ibs. Terrible burping gas (again I have ALOT of food issues So could be related to that) and now heartburn this afternoon. I feel like I'm being so hypersensitive to any tiny symptom! I'm going nuts.
I'm really hoping this is my month.

@Bigfatwiggle have you had any spotting? I seem to be on the lookout for that for the next few days. AF is due Monday but I normally start spotting the night before so will see what happens. The TWW is hell!

Hayleigh00 Mon 12-Aug-19 17:15:00

@FearnRJ we’ve been TTC now for 9 months! So it’s getting highly frustrating! This is our second month using pre seed so 🤞🏻

@Bigfatwiggle I feel you girl! I’ve been chewing antacids today like they’re polos 😂 the only thing looking good for this month is I NEVER suffer with heart burn like this, every time I burp or hiccup it flares back up again! And my boobs are something else this month, they flared up sooner than they usually do when I’m due on! I’m massively bloated (could be my ibs) I don’t think some of these issues are my ibs, it just doesn’t seem like my usual belly issues! So 🤞🏻🤞🏻

FearnRJ Mon 12-Aug-19 17:39:20

@Hayleigh00 fingers crossed for you then! I've heard good things about pre seed going to try it next month if AF arrives x

Bigfatwiggle Mon 12-Aug-19 20:12:16

Just distracted myself by making a huge curry from scratch which was delish. Sickness has gone along with heartburn.....I think my brain is just being a prick and making me see things that aren't there. (excuse my language but it winds me up so much that the body can create such realistic symptoms when you are so desperate)

Might get a frer tomorrow and see if that holds any answers I don't think I can take much more am I aren't I?

Good luck Op! Can I ask what the app is you are using? Looks nice and simple. Thanks smile

girlanonymous Tue 13-Aug-19 00:29:20

will be following this as AF due on Sunday.

@GinUnicorn app is Glow. I've got it along with Flo and Ovia. Bit of an app freak lol xx

GinUnicorn Tue 13-Aug-19 07:59:40

Thanks. I’ve sort of been guessing so far and probably worth doing it properly if I actually want success. I’ll download.

FearnRJ Tue 13-Aug-19 08:53:40

@GinUnicorn I use both glow and Ovia both are really good x

Hayleigh00 Tue 13-Aug-19 10:28:54

This month is actually killing me, im having such good signs that we may have succeeded this month, AF in 4 days and im actually nervous, like the thought gives me butterflies

Bigfatwiggle Tue 13-Aug-19 11:24:13

Really glad you are in high spirits @hayleigh00 smile
I am due AF on fri/sat. Did a test this morning but got a bfn.....feeling really disheartened. Hope everyone else is doing ok?

Hayleigh00 Tue 13-Aug-19 11:34:57

@bigfatwiggle ... i feel awful today and these nerves arent helping matters haha i so want to test my h2b wont let me! Got to wait until saturday and see what happens!

GinUnicorn Tue 13-Aug-19 15:07:16

I feel really tired and keep eating biscuits. I’m not due for 9 days though so I’m probably just greedy in reality. Fingers cross though smile

Hayleigh00 Tue 13-Aug-19 15:45:47

i'm still having lots of creamy cm today, heart burn on and off - not as bad as yesterday! the odd twinge/pinching pain, nausea has popped up today, i'm hungry but trying to eat makes me gag ... just needs to be Saturday already!!

starlightmagic Tue 13-Aug-19 15:50:07

My first symptom was an upset stomach probably 4 days before my period was due! 🤞

Hayleigh00 Tue 13-Aug-19 16:49:59

@starlightmagic have you had your BFP?

starlightmagic Tue 13-Aug-19 16:55:45

Yes 7 weeks today ☺️

Hayleigh00 Tue 13-Aug-19 17:25:26

@starlightmagic what were your symptoms prior to your bfp!?

starlightmagic Tue 13-Aug-19 19:04:45

Mainly an upset stomach for a good few days, then probably my usual moodiness before I come on but x100 my poor husband was getting his head bitten off for everything! Then sore boobs etc but that got worse a bit later on

@Hayleigh00 have you managed to hold off on the testing?
