Hi there, I'm not Flumpette but I have been pregnant a few times, including now! I always find the first symptoms for me personally are sore boobs- nipples especially and I have noticed blue veins all over my boobs, chest and shoulders before I missed my period. To be honest the symptoms of pg are so similar to being pre-menstrual ie twinges etc that it is difficult to tell. After a missed period I've had peeing constantly, tiredness and tearfulness. Nausea etc doesn't kick in for me until about 7-8 wks. Good luck to you both!
Congratulations lilsmum and Rachey. Must be so great to get a BFP.
What is AF? I get the idea just not sure what it stands for.
last week wasn't so bad but this is already the longest week ever. Not helped that sister, both sisters-in-law and best friend all pregnant. Am not sure what I'll do if this doesn't work
Best of luck Bubbly - my fingers and toes are all crossed for both of us.
Hi Bubbly. Sorry I wasn't around yesterday. I know so well how you are feeling and it's torture.
From day 1 I had lots of twinges which were a mixture of the soreness from EC (Dr said he'd had spent quite a bit of time poking around in two of the smaller follicles) plus the Cyclogest pessaries taking shape I assume. I guess some of it may have been due to BFP.
On this cycle I didn't worry that every twinge was my AF (on the first cycle I was worried sick as I didn't know that AF pains can be the same as early pregnancy pains).
My boobs haven't been doing much, just the odd tingle.
In fact, now day 17 after ET apart from having a very bloated abdomen (which is definitely the cyclogest), I don't feel anything which is slightly worrying me as I thought I might feel pregnant.
You may be stronger than me but as you know I just couldn't wait to test on day 14.
I'll keep looking at this thread and supporting you as much as I can.
Hope I covered everything.
Oh, and I was very tempremental and 'snappy' but to be honest once I got the BFP I ditched the mood, so I can't really put that down to drugs.
I have read other websites during my 2ww and everybody experiences such different symptoms and some have none, but I won't say so don't worry because it's impossible not to.
flumpette, thanks for letting me know all your symptons and when you had them
i know i know, everyones different, but try telling that to a hormonal bitch who wants to know yesterday!! not next week!
thanks again, i read on your other thread that you dont feel pregnant....when i had my iui last time and got pg with my ds, i had all the symptons before knowing my results, but after that absolutely nothing...no sore boobs, no sickness, no nothing, not a zilch! so dont worry too much hun
No luck for me this time. AF came to visit this morning.
I didn't think I'd be able to get past it but it's amazing what you can do when you need to like persuade yourself it's for the best (how???)
Have already made an out of hours trip to the hospital to sign up for the next course of treatment but won't be until September - the earliest date available.
Bubbly - all my fingers and toes crossed for luck - I hope that it works for you.
