Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

Me and the mr are TTC and this is just our 1st month so im not getting my hopes up, but...
AF is due on the 22nd so im in my TWW & ive been having weird 'symptoms' this month that i dont normally experience.
*Extremely bloated to the point where i was offered a seat on the train today!
* Bad break out of spots (GAH!)
* I keep getting a stitch in my left hand side which lasts several minutes then goes (weird)
* My diet coke and bagel that i get every morning taste, 'weird', not as normal.
* I keep getting hot flushes in my cheeks where they feel like theyre burning up, then it calms and goes
Ive got at least another 7 days until i test, but do you think theres ANY chance this could be good news in terms of being pregnant?
Have any of you exeprienced these syptoms then turned out to be pregnant?

Hi Sarah I just wanted to drop by and say that I am in a very similar position to you. I'm cd21 and this is the first month of trying, together with having some possible symptoms of pregnancy. It is possible that you could be pregnant so quickly, but also our minds tend to play tricks on us when we want something so badly, so be cautious! I really hope that you get a BFP when you are able to take the test!
This is my first time TTC, but I know of other people who have gotten pregnant straight off the pill, so it's definitely possible. Wishing you the best of luck xxx

Hey! Thanks for posting a reply!
I am also CD 21!
Are you temped to test early? Im so excited but worried i'll be diapointed if its negative, which is daft because month 1 of trying would just be BEYOND lucky, though one of my friends hit the jackpot in her 1st month.
Please let me know how the next few days pan out for you- what have you been experiencing in terms of possible symptoms? xx

Do a test I've got BFPs 7 days before AF was due with both pregnancies. If it's positive, great - if it's negative take it as inconclusive until AF shows up xx

herewegoagain- NOOOOOOO! I want to live in a hope just a little bit longer before i take a test and get a BFN!
wantingapositive: I KNOW! Everywhere i go there are pregnant people, babies, baby adverts and all sorts! I cant escape it!
I know what you mean about not wanting to get hopes up, but its so hard not to

This is also our first month ttc too and am currently in the 2nd week of my 2ww but I dont feel any different yet except had some sharp pain in my abdomen today but it was only a couple of times and didnt last long. I am also experiencing the mega hot flushes after lunch time, so much so my colleagues have asked if I am ok. I caved and did a test yesterday but it was bfn so will hold out now until the weekend before I do another. I am due on again next week so we shall see what happens.
Fingers crossed for you all and lots of sticky baby dust................

I to am TTC this year and have 3 days until AF but have been having some what feels like ovulation pain dull and low for about 3 weeks now, im spotty and i have noticed that im weeing a bit more but just wondered if tis is a sign or am i reading too much into it? Im cycle day 25.
Lets hope we all get BFP;s soon

Hi Kelz80- Im CD 22 and due to tuesday.
I was having really obvious symptoms but they've started to die down now.
Im super spotty, but i suspect these may be due to AF being on her way, I hope not! xx
16/01/2013 at 15:33
I will do and please keep me posted how you all get on too. I have had a bit of a headache for the last day or two aswell but could just be reading too much in to it. The mind does seem to like playing tricks!!
16/01/2013 at 15:37
It really does! I swear im making 'symptoms' up! xx
16/01/2013 at 15:43
Just had this dull ache but i think it could all be psychological.
I know it's bad we spend so much time trying not to get PG then we drive ourselves crazy trying to, im going to be dissapointed if AF arrives but this is my first month of trying.
I think im going to limit myself to this site and forum only as i dont want to strees myself out. Think its becomming an obbsession and thats not good.
Well lets hope we all have BFP and if we dont this month we can vent on here and keep going with it.
Fingers crossed x

I know how u feel- i feel slightly obsessed and its only 1 month in... i can see how it could easily spiral! xx
16/01/2013 at 16:22
Im with you all on that one. It's too easy to get so carried away. On the plus side, I've learnt alot about my body which I didnt know before and am surprised on how long things can take.
I am going to test again on saturday morning and if bfn then I shal wait to see when af arrives as she is due any time from Monday.
Fingers crossed!! Xxxxx

Good luck everyone I'm cd23 now! I'm pretty sure my "symptoms" are all in my head, so not expecting to be pregnant this month. I'm just hoping that I get my first AF at a reasonable time!
17/01/2013 at 12:49
Hi DLM28 im pretty sure mine are too x

It's frustrating isn't it! I didn't realise how baby mad I would go once finally deciding to TTC. *reigns it in a bit* Lol.
