Abdominal tenderness

Has anyone had this as a very early pregnancy symptom (about 6 dpo). Am now on 7 dpo and its still there. Not horribly uncomfortable but tender all the same .

I like to obsess with symptom spotting.... Not a good thing really.

I'm on month 5 and each month my imagination goes wild. I am 9 dpo and felt like period was coming on today.

Is this your first Shelleee? I am TTC no 2.

Hi mind if i join in? im TTC no 1, just come off the pill 3 weeks ago, had no sign of period so am symptom spotting like crazy too. People have told me not to test til at least 4 weeks which feels like years away!

Of course you can join in.

Bought some early testing HPTs the other day from e-bay which wasn't the best idea ever as they are calling my name.

lol i was wondering whether to get some tests but not use them til next week but they will be shining out the drawer like a beacon calling my name if i do that so im just going to have to sit on my hands for a bit before i buy any. I keep thinking though that if my period doesnt come thats always a good sign. Its hard to tell when or if it will come tho as the pill obv changes things. Stuck in limbo

loujalou , im ttc#2 but my ds is 11 now so its been a long time since i was pregnant ,im in a new relationship so i will have to see what happens , oh and i also bought some ovulation and pregnancy tests off ebay and caved in and did a pg test this afternoon , what a waste of time because it was negative of course so now im just thinking it was too early to test anyway tishtosh21 hi ,my advice is dont have any in the house as its way too tempting and u just keep testing..

Symptoms / things in my head seem to have disappeared. Hubby keeps telling me to do a test though as he thinks this is the month.

Last time I got pregnant on the third month so 5th month feels like forever.

Any news? You given in yet?

I am in similar boat! We're TTC#2 (DS is nearly 6 now) and I'm getting obsessed coz I keep getting a constant dull but noticable cramp in my lower abdomen! Boobs feeling heavy too, but I'm only 4DPO so I'm sure its too early! Not going to test till 10/10 coz I have 34 day cycle! Its so frustrating, just dont want to get my hopes up!!!!

Argh - took a HPT today and it was negative so think it was my over active imagination!

Oh well at least I know now. Next month here I come.
