Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive
17/07/2013 at 18:20
We have just started trying and the last time we had unprotected sex was last Monday.
Since then I felt a tad queasy, a couple of days when I have been drinking water I have had a metallic taste in my mouth, bloated, sore boobs, tired (but this could be the heat) and cramping / aching low in my tummy. I know alot of this could be due to me being due on my period (on Friday) however I wondered if anyone had any of these symptoms and actually found out they were pregnant?
Also, someone please help me with the abbreviations on this site!! how do I learn about the abbreviations as I am clueless!!!
Looking forward to hearing from youuuu!!

I'm new to this forum but not to BE, we just started trying for our second this month so I thought I'd come back on BE and see what's happening on here.
I've had rediculously sore nipples for 3 days and am waiting until monday to do an early test and see. With your symptoms it could be you're pregnant but theres only one way to be sure! If AF is due tomorrow why not do an early test?
Most of all I wanted to post this for you... stolen from an old post!
Best of luck testing!

Hiya Zo I'm in my third month of trying and have a few more days yet til i see if we were successful this month so not really that clued up on symptoms but I know a lot people who have said they knew they were pregnant before their AF was due because of various issues. Most things I have heard are tiredness, lots of CM (watery discharge after ovulation) and cramps usually down to implantation. These things are all different for different people. If you are just starting and haven't done so already, make sure you get some ovulation tests as the first month I did it, we didn't use ovulation tests and I just went by the standard Day 14 and 15 but in second month i realised my dates are actually 16 and 17 so missed it completely the first month! Best of luck with it all. Try not to obsess too much. I thought I was pregnant last month, i was adamant I was and then I was so gutted when AF arrived. I feel quitely confident again this month but like you analysing lots. Try and chill and go with the flow. If you are due on Friday then you could test now?? Eeek fingers crossed for a BFP for you xx

Thank you so much ladies!! Much appreciated!!
XPatBeth: Thank you sooo much for the abbreviations hun! I'm still laughing at AF, haven't heard that saying for a loooong time! Hehe!!!
Jojo25: Thanks hun! Good luck to you too!! It's all very exciting!! We have been using the ovulation tests so I have got it down to a fine art now I think!! To be honest I'd rather only test if I'm late... Keep myself in suspense! Fingers and Toes crossed for you too sweety!! x
