When I fell pregnant with W, I was almost certain I knew when implantation had occurred. I was convinced it was at 5dpo, and i got my first faint bfp at 9dpo.
So my questions are:
How similar were your symptoms of early pregnancy?
How likely is it for implantation to occur at the same time each cycle?
I had promised myself that I wouldn't symptom spot this time and just accept that if it's to be, it will be. But I might as well not gave bothered.

My symptoms were the same both times (sore boobs and slightly nauseous). I can't guarantee the implantation was any different as never one to use OPKs but being as we only dtd once when ttc #2 and it was cycle day 8 and my dd was bought forward by 6 days at my scan (whereas spot on last time) I'm figuring my ovulation/implantation may have been earlier iyswim.

Thanks coco! We were using Opks and dtd on cd 12 and 14 with a positive Opk on day 13. I'm 5DPO and despite best efforts, have been obsessing over the strange cramping I've had today. It's probably nothing, and all in my head, but I can't seem to switch off.

With F I got a faint bfp at 8dpo, clear bfp at 9dpo and no symptoms until 7 weeks. This time I tested at 10dpo and a bfn so I thought I was out for the month and didn't test again until 16dpo ish and only as I twigged I could be late (irregular cycles so was only going on opk's) but I got really breathless very early on but no sickness until 7 weeks again. So bfp wise it was totally different. Good luck x

2 babies and a miscarriage over 17 years. Same nausea, same mild heartburn (I don't get heartburn) and same lightheadedness early on.

Thanks TP! I was the same with W. I had bloating and a strange discharge on the run up to the bfp.
How are you keeping in general?

With my 1st my boobs were really sore & tender but this time I had no early symptoms (except I didn't have the spotting I'd been having just before af with all my most recent cycles). Good luck x

Thank you! I've been really bloated and windy today, much like the last time. I've also had this feeling AF is starting, but it's just discharge.
I hate the 2ww. Drives me to distraction.

With my 3 pregnancies (two miscarriages and I'm currently 15 weeks pregnant) I had heartburn and tingle in my boobies.

With no1 I don't recall feeling any implantation cramping and I didn't test until AF was 2 days late at 14 DPO and got a strong line on a FRER. This time, I definitely felt something at 5DPO and looking back at my google search history I can see I googled "5DPO mild cramping". Got a very faint line on a Superdrug early at 9DPO, so much so that I'd ignored it at first and only saw the line when I went back to it 10 minutes later. Didn't get a line on my ICs until 13 or 14DPO.

Thanks Ninky, That's exactly what happened with W, cramping at 5 dpo right through to the faint positives that i nearly missed at 9dpo! I'm currently at 7dpo and starting to think all my symptoms are in my head as i can explain away pretty much all of them.

Iv had different symptoms each time
#1 nothing really, probably increased cm and bloating
#2 I only tested as I was soooo tired
#3 mc just bloated
#4 mc sore boobs and increased cm and bloated
#5 no symptoms, just tested as I was obsessively testing, started with extreme hunger about 5 weeks (o actually this is the only pregnancy I had implantation bleed around the time of af)
#6 not ttc, roughly knew when period due, had slight back pain and felt the need to test, no symptoms really and was go smacked to keep seeing positive lines , started with tiredness about 5ish weeks

Thanks TRF. I've convinced myself that if i don't feel like i did last time then i probably won't be....although i still potentially might not be. I've had increased CM, but i don't know if that's just a normal part of my cycle as this is the 2nd cycle off the pill and i wasn't paying that much attention during the first one to notice.
