Anyone 3-6dpo and want to share ridiculous symptom spotting / poas urges?(275 Posts)
I'm 4dpo today. Had a mc last cycle so this cycle is all over the place. My boobs are currently so sore it is making me (probably foolishly) hopeful.
I'd love to get a thread running for some support. Anyone want to join?
Hey! I'd love to join - I'm slightly earlier at 2DPO today but I also had a MC last month so no idea what to expect this time round. Having severe ovulation pain this month which is still going on so hoping that fades soon! Apart from that, no symptoms at all! 😩 I had boob pain/sensitive nipples when I fell pregnant so not feeling overly hopeful this time round! Wishing the next two weeks fly by! x
I am also 4dpo, also has a mc last cycle. My ovulation was delayed. I have all the symptoms under the sun but I know this will be a result of wonky hormones as it's so early. Sensitive nipples, massive spot on my chin and creamy CM! I am also taking baby asprin this TWW as I figure after 2 mcs I might as well try it. I will have to test early (as if I need an excuse) as I will stop it before AF if no BFP.
Hey! I was gonna post the exact same thread! I'm 6dpo and have been very crampy last couple of days. I've also cried two days in a row and I never cry. Trying so hard not to get my hopes up but it's impossible when you want something so much!
I’m 3dpo today and at risk of it being too much TMI but I’m very gassy, and been having cramps for the past couple days. It’s only my first month trying so it’s probably all in my head. I’m going to test next Sunday I think.
@RBCoxie sorry to hear you suffered a miscarriage too. It does seem to royally mess up yr cycle.
When I conceived last month I barely had any symptoms at all so I am taking it all with a pinch of salt if I'm honest (or
@Catmum55566 oh very similar then. Sorry to hear of your miscarriage too. My ovulation was actually the same day as usual which I'm surprised about. But omg I also have a huge spot on my chin! I never get spots it's really weird! My cm has also been plentiful and creamy. It must be hormonal?
Does anyone temp?
@Fifi1086 I have had a lot of cramping too, and I did last time I managed to get pregnant. It feels a bit like achey stomach muscles sometimes. Are you planning to test early or wait for AF?
@Nadsc so easy to symptom spot isn't it!? If you're gassy and aren't usually it is worth noting tho. I'm just always gassy 😂
@Toastedsesame yeah it's strange it's not like AF cramps. I also have had (tmi) kinda thick white stretchy cm. I'm not used to regular cycles because of being on the pill so I don't know what my normal is. I'm gonna try hold off til fri to test when I'll be around 11DPO
Hi can I join? I’m 6dpo today. 4th cycle trying and starting to feel a bit fed up.
Zero symptoms but guess it’s early. I had a termination in my mid 20s (now 32) so hoping it isn’t karma that it’s taking longer now I actually want to be pregnant. Last time I remember I kept thinking it was AF on the way, massive and painful boobs and a dull ache like AF was about to start any second, but she never came.
I started temping again last month so watching it like a hawk. Fingers crossed for everyone on here! Hoping for some BFPs all round!
@coffee1988 it does get a bit soul destroying doesn't it? Were on cycle 6 of trying now.
Ooh do you fancy posting yr chart? Be fun to compare. Mine has run really warm this cycle I think because of the MC.
@Fifi1086 yes mine is similar! Have struggled to log it on my app because it's like a mixture of ew and creamy 😂
@Toastedsesame it's so weird isn't it? I'm 7dpo today so officially half way through the tww! My bbt has stayed basically the same the last few days, is that a bad sign? Should it not be going up?
@Fifi1086 hard to say without seeing a whole chart / pattern but generally after ovulation yr temp should stay elevated until AF visits, then it plummets. My temps have all been around 36.80 last 3/4 days.
@Catmum55566 and @Toastedsesame thanks that's reassured me. I guess I'm just used to seeing people's charts rise consistently after O.
@Catmum55566 that looks like a great chart to me! Steady increases
@Toastedsesame it could be the inconsistent times you're checking bbt making it not recognise? It def looks like you ovulated but possibly not til cd19? Hard to say!
Hey hope I'm okay jumping on this post!
Me and hubby DTD 14th Feb 😏😂
My Flo app says I was due to ovulate on the 17th however I think I ovulated a day or 2 before this because I always get a headache during ovulation
Anyway fast forward to the day after DTD and I had like pinky spotting for 2 days, thought nothing of it as we hadn't had sex for 2 months! Just thought it was abit of damage 😅
Then on Saturday I felt really acidic and sick, yesterday I then woke up with brown spotting when I wiped, only once and I was really tired!
I had cramps throughout the day, headache and I was starving constantly
I did a tesco own test which came up vv faint positive, not sure if it's an evap line, my husband could see it too
This morning I did a pink dye test and nothing but my period isn't due for another 11 days so I am testing way too early
I've just been to the loo again and had brown spotting when I wiped again
This sort of correlates and would make sense if it's IB
Not sure when to test again I get a little obsessive
When I found out I was pregnant with my little girl it was a week before my wedding so I provably missed all of the symptoms
Good luck everyone!
@Catmum55566 nice to see someone else with spikey chart 😂 looks like a nice rise tho!
@Fifi1086 yes, could definitely be timings but I always temp between 6.30-7.30 so not loads in it. Depends when my toddler wakes me up 😜 I was also really I'll on cd16 and 17 and was being sick (something I ate) so I discounted that temp because it was sky high.
@Toastedsesame oh that's really not much in it at all and shouldn't affect anything! But it def looks to me like you ovulated!
@lelrx welcome! Sounds like good signs, hopefully IB and not af. When is it due?
AF not due until 4th March so a while yet!
Also had bleeding gums and been really gassy too which also makes me wonder! Xx
@lelrx you're a few behind me then I'm due 1st, am holding out until fri to test at 11DPO. Symptom spotting like crazy! My skin has broken out in sore spots and I've a really stuffed nose today
Have you had any other symptoms at all?
When I think back to my last pregnancy I was really unaware until I just didn't fancy a coffee and cake at Costa, really strange for me I never turn down food 😂
Prior to that I did have a dizzy spell and bloating then sickness came at around the 6 week mark
But in all honestly I didn't even acknowledge any symptoms cause I was too busy with last minute wedding prep!
I always think I'm pregnant but the bleeding has convinced me that I am this time, could be something else going on but with all the symptoms I'm suspicious!
I'm quite in tune with my body I think although I could be just imagining it all
Have you done any tests already or just holding out until Friday?
I just can't help myself when they are in the house 😅
I also feel phlegmy at the back of my throat, not sure if that has anything to do with it 😂
@lelrx So my last pregnancy was 12 years ago when I was 21, I had just started a new job and my shifts were 7-3 and I had to be up at 5 to commute. About two weeks into the job I was absolutely shattered so I called in sick one day cos I couldn't be arsed going in, I had to go to the doc to get a sick note and gave this whole feel about how sick I was feeling,!3.5 thing he does a test and I was pregnant 😂 No symptoms other than being tired, which I was anyway with the early mornings! But that test it turned out was a few days before I'd have missed my AF so was really early.
This time, because we've really given it a good go I'm symptom spotting like mad. I've no cramps today for first time in a couple of days and my cervix has gone waaaay up and I can't even reach it. I have a few FRERs that I don't wanna use til at least Friday but I got some cheapy strips so I can pee on something 😂😂😂😂 I'll probably start those tomorrow
Can I join in? I’m 5dpo and af is due 4 March but I won’t be able to stop myself testing early (already have first response tests in my drawer).
I’ve been symptom stopping too but it’s probably wishful thinking!
With my first pregnancy we wasn't actively trying so I didn't even consider that I might be! My whole honeymoon in florida was a nightmare, I felt sick the whole time so it did ruin the experience a little, wouldn't change it though! My little girl is nearly 2. We haven't been actively trying this time either as we are very much like it happens when It happens but cause I'm not on contraception and I do log my periods etc I'm alot more aware of my symptoms
Last month about 7 days before my period I spotted for about 5 days, very strange as I am usually regular, then AF arrived and then this month I had the blood after sex for 2 days which I think could potentially have been ovulation bleeding, then the spotting yesterday and today potential IB
I mean if I am we are very very lucky catching right away because we don't get to DTD very often
On the flip side if I'm not I need to see the GP because bleeding between cycles isn't the norm for me xx
