Thigh pain before bfp?(26 Posts)
Hey, I hope you are all well!
Just wondering if anyone got really bad pain like an ache at the top of their thighs before their BFP? Last night I had it whilst lying in bed accompanied by AF cramps. I couldn’t sleep, it was very odd I’m not due AF until 21/10 (a week) so it just seems so strange as I usually don’t get her symptoms and pains until the day before, I usually have a very regular 29 day cycle. I’m probably just symptom spotting but I just thought if anyone did have these symptoms then they would make me feel abit better (maybe lol). Had 2 MMC in the past year and really hoping this is our month. Xxx
Hi, I'm not sure whether it is the same thing but 2 days ago I had a really strange pain in my thigh but only in my left leg. Thought I'd maybe pulled a muscle, it went away. I randomly did a test yesterday and got this very faint line which I'm not sure if it's a line, evap or indent 🙈 Anyway good luck and hope it is a sign for you! Xx
How strange @Spectrum82 !! Was your pain quite bad? I have no pain this morning at all except a few AF type cramps but the legs are completely fine 🤷🏽♀️. There is definitely a shadow on your test, hopefully it's just really early and your line will get darker! I also raced to take a test this morning but I'm not sure how I feel about it... maybe I am seeing things but I'm sure I can see the FAINTEST line ever. What do you think? Really hoping this is our month!!! Xxx
@Jezabel2021 Yes the pain was quite bad, enough to make me stop what I was doing and keep rubbing my leg haha. Lasted a couple of hours, it is very strange! I've got some tests coming today so will try another if I can't wait till morning. I can definitely see a line on yours albeit very faint! 😊 xx
@Spectrum82 hopefully they are signs! Have you had any more symptoms & when is AF due for you? I've got some more coming later on today too but I'm going to try and hold out until tomorrow now, I get too addicted to POAS so I just need to reign it in abit 🙈😂. You will have to let me know how you get on 🤞🏼 xx
@Jezabel2021 I've just got really sore boobs, my af is due in 2 days and I don't normally have them this close to af. Apart from that I feel normal so I really don't know what to think lol. 😂😂 I'm the exact same, end up sat in the bathroom most of the day examining tests lol. When is your AF due and have you been having more symptoms? Xx
@Spectrum82 well that's a good sign if it's not usual for you.. you haven't got long to wait! I've got another 7 days until AF is due 😭. Symptoms wise I'm just bloated gassy and TMI but different CM from my last cycles. I don't have sore boobs so that might be a giveaway that I'm not 🤷🏽♀️ but I suppose we don't know until AF actually shows. I hate hate hate this TWW it drives me insane and end up spending a fortune on tests too 😭 xx
They could all be signs tho! As for the sore boobs I never had them at all with my first, then my second was pretty much pain from the word go lol. So different every time isn't it. I know what you mean, my tests have just been delivered and I'm trying so hard not to go pee on one! Would probably not show anything anyway at this time of day and I've been drinking water all day. Just got to wait it out, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you xx
I usually get thigh pain before af arrives. Can be a few days before or can already start shortly after I ovulate. Never meant that I'm pregnant (or not), it's just something that happens every month.
I once had intense pain in my leg at night when I was pregnant and it was a symptom of it being ectopic. I went to see the GP the next day and had to have surgery the day after.
Good luck, though. A week before af being due is quite early to be testing. Fingers crossed it works out.
@Dizzyhedgehog oh lord I hope it's not a bad sign!! I know it's far too early but I just can't help myself. I say to myself every month 'right no testing' and look what happens 🤷🏽♀️🙈😂. Thank you for your good luck wishes. Xx
@Spectrum82 lol glad Im not the only one! Oh I can definitely see something on yours? Maybe I've just got line eyes now but I think there is something there? Xx
@Spectrum82 I keep going back on your pic and I'm sure there's a shadow? X
There is something there for sure! Are you going to do another test in the morning, hopefully if positive both of our lines will be a bit stronger then. I've just got so excited but I know if in the morning there is nothing there I will be very gutted, it's my own fault really but I just can't help it 😭🤷🏽♀️ xx
@Jezabel2021 I feel the same, build myself up then get let down lol! I think I can see something more than I could before. I can deffo see something on yours tho, much clearer than your other pic. Hopefully it will be stronger in the morning. I'm definitely testing in the morning, just hoping I can control myself tonight 😂 xx
@Spectrum82 I know, my nerves are actually gone for in the morning now 🤣🙈. God help us! I have forbidden myself to do another today, so tomorrow it is! 🤞🏼 for us both! Xx
@Jezabel2021 Haha! Yep, well good luck for in the morning. Let me know how you get on 😊 xx
@Spectrum82 good luck to you too! Update tomorrow. Xx
@Jezabel2021 I can still see yours even tho it's faint. You're still really early aswell so I think it's a good sign! I took one this morning and there was absolutely nothing on it, I checked under lights, held it up to the window and everything so I don't know what's going on I think in my case if I was it would have definitely shown up stronger today as I'm expecting AF tomorrow xx
🥺 I'm really sorry about that @Spectrum82but you never know, it's not over until AF shows! I'm praying she stays away for you.
I think I'm just a bit worried about mine as I have been reading reviews about the new first response tests giving false positives with indent lines so until mine gets stronger & has colour Im really not believing it!
Stay positive love. Xx
@Jezabel2021 Thank you, I'm just going to wait and see what happens. With my last pregnancy I never got a positive on first responses until I was about 6 weeks. You can obviously see better in real life but when I zoom in on your pic the line looks pink? It's just so annoying and frustrating isn't it! All we can do is wait and see but stay hopeful because your tests all do look positive albeit pale. Xx
@Spectrum82 I thought so too but now I'm not sure about the colour in it. I'm not even going to look at again in real life now because they say anything over the time frame will just be evap won't it. Yes it's so frustrating, annoying when you want something SO bad!! I wish I could just forget about it and let it just be but I can't get it out of my mind 😭. Have you been ttc for a while now? 6 weeks with frer is crazy when they say it would show up 6 days before AF!!! Xx
