Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive
06/11/2013 at 09:40
Ooooh been a while since I started one of these!
6DPO and my boobs are really sore at the sides, they feel rock hard - I think this is pretty normal for me tho, got a few little cramps today too. As of Saturday I will be symptom spotting like mad for a week so get used to this!

Rod, I wonder if its possible to not symptom spot? If anyone can get through the 2WW without doing it then I bow down to them. I know I'm not pregnant, but I'm still clinging on to and hoping for every symptom under the sun.

I dont think its possible unless you dont really know a lot about TTC and are just DTD whenever. Some people dont track ovulation etc so they wouldnt know if they were in the 2ww anyway.
Anyway I am terrible for it. H really gets upset with me cos I always build it up and up and then am really upset when its not the result I want. He tells me not to get my hopes up but I really cant help it!

Rod, its hard. I don't tell H any of my 'symptoms' as I don't want to get his hopes up as well. The old 'I just knew I was' makes me squeem a little, as if any cycle ended with a BFP I could say 'I just knew' because of my ability to get completely carried away with my 'symptoms' every single cycle!

Ha! I think that because i've been pregnant before I would 'know' but then again, when i was, i had no idea, I was convinced I wasnt, so there goes that theory!
I dont tell H my 'symptoms' either cos he ALWAYS says, 'yes Rod, you had this last month too' haha!

My SIL told me that she never did a test, she just knew she was. Now I keep thinking I can't be, because I don't just know I am! Lol! You could go round and round in circles couldn't you!

Its ridiculous! Stupid TTC!

Morning. Totally agree that it's not possible not to symptom spot. I'm spotting now even when I don't know whether or not I've ovulated! (headaches, sensitive/itchy nips). more erratic temping from me though I have now learned that alcohol sends my temp spiking high. My two big surges have been the morning after 3-4 drinks.

You can drive yourself potty with temps too..... I'm constantly on FF graphs album looking for charts similar to mine and so on!

Hi all, I seem to be another symptom spotter. Very very sore boobs today, and mild crampy pains. Nothing unusual BUT I had both before my bfp, so tested today which was really silly since a) despite ewcm and a positive opk, I doubt I ovulated since I still had bfp post mc until about a week and a half ago and b) IF I ovulated then I'm only 11-12dpo and CD25 as long as the mc was CD1. BFN of course.
As Rod says, when you know a bit about how stuff works, it's hard not to overanalyse. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing!!

ah, sorry to see that BF but it must be helpful to be thinking about the future in some way.
AND I find that the more knowledge I have about it the more I want.

I didnt think i would be a symptom spotter but my lord i am!
Today is CD33 af due yest but didnt appear. Ive had period pains for days though so still expecting her, think shes just teasing me!
06/11/2013 at 16:22
Cooper - what symptoms are you spotting? Have you tested?
Just popping in, hi everyone!!!
Cooper- cramps can be an early preg symptom- have you considered testing?
06/11/2013 at 16:39
Pep for a few days after ov i had very sensitive nipples but thats gone now really had no other symptoms to spot, tho my glands are up on my left side since yesterday
Imp im on nightshift at tho mo so will test when they are finished, also got a Hen weekend away this weekend so testing Fri am if she doesnt appear. I expect to see her everytime i go to the loo. The cramps are classic af cramps so trying not to get my hopes up (though proving a little hard!)
06/11/2013 at 16:41
Cooper, when are you going to test, and how come you re so sure you're not pregnant? do you have any other symptoms?
06/11/2013 at 16:44
Cramps have always been my only symptom. I would test when you think you'll have fmu next, not sure when you do that on night shifts?
Hi BF, I hope you're doing as ok as is possible.
06/11/2013 at 16:46
Just seen your update, fingers crossed!! When I got my bfp I was also SO convinced they were AF cramps and I didn't test to start with since I was just grumpy about my cycles being apparently messed up!
06/11/2013 at 16:49
Yes I'm OK thanks Imp. Emailed the gynae consultant yesterday with a few questions, but probably not going for the fibroid removal this month. Head says do it, but gut instinct for some reason is telling me not to. We shall see. Otherwise I'm back to work, life chugging on, and expecting AF at the weekend so can start temping again with a proper CD1 :-)
