Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive
10/11/2015 at 13:21
So I have done the deed a good few times during my fertile window which was also confirmed by my ovulation kits. My temperature raised a couple of degrees after ovulation day and has stayed high. I am on the 'count down' to my next period which is due in a weeks time so all shall be revealed then. I'm not having really any symptoms:-
1. Elevated BBT at 36.9c (Im normally 35.6ish)
2. Fatigue - I can't seem to wake up easily also I am taking naps more often. This is my main symptom at the moment.
3. There was a red streak of red blood in my clear CM & then later I had a small pink creamy bit of CM. That was unusual to me.
4. Minor headaches.
5. Feelings in my breasts like aches but they don't make me go 'Oh my breasts hurt' its just like a split second where I go, hm that was interesting and its gone.
6. Tiny cramps in my uterus BUT I think its more like gas, it feels like bubbles or something, just like little twinges of discomfort that go within seconds.
Things I'm not getting that I would expect is things like:
- sore boobs, bloating, Implantation cramps, mood swings, nausea, back aches, constipation, cravings, implantation bleeding.
So I have no idea if I am in the super early early eaaaarly days of pregnancy but time shall tell! I've started taking folic acid just to be on the safe side!! :)
Comment below to tell me your stories! It'd reassure me to hear if anyone had similar symptoms or if you've had a baba and were in the same boat as me!
thank you everyone !!

Oh just remembered!!
I'm peeing more than usual too, I have to get up during the night for a pee & its a long one, my bladder feels really full!
I am drinking a healthy amount of water though but no more than usual. 2L a day.

Hi all :)
Just an update. I am definitely SPOTTING today? No idea what this means as I never bleed before my period.
TMI - Its only there after I've went to the toilet, its some red streaks of blood and is very pinky, almost cranberry coloured at times too. Not experiencing cramps as such just twinges. I will keep you up to date :D

Hi Happy M,
I have just found out I am pregnant and got my BFP on Friday evening. All I can say is my symptoms in the tww.
I found I had cramps of some description every day since Ovulating. Left side, right side middle. I did have a really weird 10-20 mins of a bubbly, scratchy burning weird sensation which then passed and that must have been during implantation? I think that was a few days after ovulation.
I have urinated frequently but the main symptom I had was white/clear creamy CM every day which didn't dry up ready for AF.
I had some spotting (very small amount of pink CM) a few days after ovulation and the just before BFP. I then had more spotting the day after BFP (Saturday) It was never bright red and also just very faint pink mixed in with CM. I have clear CM now still.
How many dpo are you? I tested on 14/15DPO with a clear blue digital and it said 1-2 week pregnant.
Only time will tell. I didn't want to test until my missed period as I didn't want to put myself through false positives and then being left wondering if I was pregnant or not.
Hope this helps xx
My boobs still don't feel that sore just heavier and every now and again feel a

Thank you very much for your kind response !!
That's all very interesting Jo M.
I am currently 5DPO. I ovulate late into my cycle and I am due my period next Monday.
TMI: Currently I am having spotting which is pink but can also resemble 'cranberry' dark pink but its very scanty and streaky. I've never had this before. I usually have a dark dry brown spotting 3 days before period is due and then it leads onto a heavy red flow. I'm wondering if this is Implantation seen as it is the week before my period however, I only had sex last week therefore surely that is too soon for implantation? Its quite confusing!
I've had these cramps that you are describing ! They aren't at all like period cramps, I wouldn't say they hurt. In fact Its almost like a gassy type feeling, pulling and twinges.
Who knows what's going on with me hehe time shall tell!! I'm thinking about testing next Friday IF my period doesn't show. Fingers crossed AF has went on vacation this month hehe
Thank you again for your reply

I'm hoping you get your BFP. :)
I only ever had the odd bits of spotting which never lasted long. TBF none of the days I have had spotting rang true with when you should have implantation bleeding. I don't think everyone actually has implantation bleeding either.
I was in limbo and wondered what all the cramps were and 2 days before my AF was due I was having definite period like cramps and felt all Blah and then they just stopped and then nothing..... I waiting 1 more day and then tested. It so tempting to test early but it can be disheartening when its a possible false negative. I tested and was convinced I wasn't pregnant and was so shocked I was as only started trying a month ago really.
I would just wait until you period is actually due and then test x
10/11/2015 at 18:11
Me too! A BFP would be great. I've only just started TTC so I won't be too disheartened.
My spotting is only there after the toilet, there isn't a lot of it which is why I find it so unusual. I'm not sure what it could be! :)
Tonight I've started to get achey boobs! :O You know the feeling when you haven't wore a bra for a couple of hours? They've started to go that achey tender way. My fingers and toes are crossed for my BFP!
I've still got another week to wait for aunt flo. I know that if I start spotting dark brown around Friday that this is all just progesterone related and my period is on the way. However, the annoying thing is that it could still be implantation bleeding that is old blood come friday haha our bodies are fickle arent they!?

BBT is still elevated.
HPT is negative.
Not feeling any cramps or other symptoms at this moment in time :) I'm thinking AF is about to start

FURTHER UPDATE @ 6DPO: ((TMI))
Since being to the toilet I have noticed a creamy thick tan/light brown discharge. Quite a bit of it too.
Normally I get very dark non creamy discharge usually around 3 days before AF arrives so this is a bit unusual.
At this time I'm saying AF is coming on but I'll keep this forum updated

Good luck Happy M. In currently 5dpo, not really having any symptoms burni know it's too early.
11/11/2015 at 15:24
Hi Chezzad :)
From what I have seen on the internet, people are saying even at 6DPO its too early for symptoms as that's when the egg implants & when you start producing a decent amount of HCG so its totally normal if you aren't feeling anything at 5DPO :)
I my self don't FEEL anything at 6DPO right now however Im a bit more moody today and I have a pink creamy discharge which is a bit random. I'm sure its related to my impending period or perhaps my cervix have been disturbed through intercourse and maybe bleeding a bit (although the last time I had sex was Sunday night so I woulda thought they'd stop bleeding by now?)
Who knows what's going on with me hehe we'll find out soon. I pray its a nice little bun in the oven though <3
Baby dust to everyone !!
& thank you so much to everyone commenting on this post you's are all lovely people! xxx

Started getting cramps tonight. Like mini period pains but not as sore. They dont wanna make me curl up with a heat pad but they are uncomfortable.
Also got a dark brown/ dark red discharge now so unless my period is a week early I'd be thinking this is Implantation bleeding hehehe im excited now! Suspense xxx
12/11/2015 at 12:44
UPDATE @ 7DPO:
- BBT shot up today from being already elevated at 36.7c now to 37.1c also my partner said I am roasting hot when he was spooning me last night?!
- Sniffly, I am sneezing A LOT lately
-Tired... Just feel snuggly and want to sleep. I passed out in bed last night, was out like a light!
- Peeing a lot more
- Dry mouth at night, maybe due to sniffly nose?
- Not so much cramps, feels like twinges and pulling but wouldnt say they're that noticeable
- Creamy CM, light brown tan colour but only there after the toilet not on pants
-My nipples aren't actually all that dark
- Twinges of pain in both breasts, they feel a bit heavier than normal.
-NO nausea at all
-Minor headaches now and then
I am taking folic acid daily just to be on the safe side. Due period on Monday and normally by tomorrow I'd start to see a dry, thick & dark brown discharge for AF coming. But I'm hopeful that the spike in BBT indicated my hopeful pregnancy. The fact I had some spotting on Monday gone by was unusual for me and the creamy brown discharge is a bit out of the norm but still I can't rule out AF yet. I will keep this updated.
12/11/2015 at 12:47
PS: I can't rule out AF due to the effects of the spike in progesterone in my body right now. Progesterone spikes high right before your period causing your BBT to increase and then drops dramatically (usually lowering BBT) when you start your period. Progesterone can give you all of the above symptoms I've mentioned. It can make you sleepy, moody, bloated, crampy, spotting etc...
Just something to bare in mind in case anyone is in the same boat as me & didn't know this already

7DPO UPDATE 3:
I've started to feel a bit 'car sick' although I am sitting on the sofa taking is easy right now. I feel really hungry, ate a couple of hours ago but I feel hungry again & its that sort of hunger where you feel quite sick. I dont feel like im going to throw up, I feel light headed and just off, salivating a lot & general uneasy.
This COULD be due to pregnancy but also could be due to not eating within a couple of hours so AF could still be on its way. Not ruling out AF just yet.
My boobs are quite tender today and nipples are sensitive. I wouldnt say my nipples are dark HOWEVER I have noticed that my areolas are huge?! Not sure my breasts have gotten bigger but my nipple. Breasts are definitely veiny.
That's hopefully my final update for today 7DPO :)
12/11/2015 at 16:18
Hi everyone, good luck happy m!
Thought I would share my story, so I am due af in 2 days yesterday I had light pink spotting and today I have had brown spotting, I have had lots off creamy cm the past wee! But I do normally start spotting 2 days before that is why am not very hopeful, I have had pains in my left and middle side and boobs heavy and very tired and feeling very sick at night every night recently but that is all anyway that'd me!xxx
12/11/2015 at 17:07
thanks for sharing! I really do hope you get your BFP!
Your symptoms could well be implantation bleeding in regards to the spotting and cramps. The fact your spotting was pink and then went brown seems promising! Heavy breasts, tiredness and sickness are again all early pregnancy signs. Wait until Sunday if your flow hasn't came on full and heavy to take a HPT.
On the downside your symptoms can also be AF related due to a spike in your progesterone, they also give you the symptoms you've mentioned. AF and Pregnancy symptoms are identical. Its rather annoying I am in the same boat.
Time will tell sweetie, I really do wish you the best of luck!!
Baby dust to all

Hi happy M where did you read about the progesterone spike? I had a 0.2 degree spike this morning at 6dpo. Trying not to fixate too much on it.
