Thread: Early Pregnancy signs/symptoms

  1. #151

    Default

    Hi like a lot of people here I am new. My fiance and I aren't planning on conceiving anytime soon, but I keep getting this sneaking suspicion that the big man upstairs feels that it's time for us to bring in a third little member to our family (he has a beautiful 9 year old daughter and a handsome 12 year old son from previous marriage). I don't want to tell him just yet about my suspicions until they are confirmed because I don't want him to get his hopes up (we had a suspicion in September). My periods are spot on 27 days apart usually pretty heavy with clots for about 4 days. We had sex during the first week of January (which happened to be my fertile period) and used a condom, but only just before he got off. About 10 days later I had some cramping in my lower abdomen. About a week later we were intimate again and the following day I started bleeding this dark reddish brown blood. I bleed for 2 days and noticed that it wasn't like my normal period (no clots no bright red). I started to suspect at that time. Since then any abnormal symptoms that I've had I have taken note of so here they are.

    -Very mild lower abdomenal cramping from time to time usually at the end of a busy shift at work.
    -Mild fatigue, I'm a night owl which is why I choose to work the evening shift and I'm up a good part of the night, lately I've been falling asleep shortly after midnight (tonight is an exception because it is my weekend off).
    -I am lactose intolerant and lately I have been craving ice cream and chocolate milk and eating them. Usually after I consume milk products within 45 minutes I am in a terrible amount of pain, but lately I haven't had any of these symptoms.
    -High pulse I don't know if it is pregnancy related, but while at work I checked my pulse (I had been resting and was nowhere near stressed) and my pulse was 126 bpm.
    -Lower abdomen is hardening.
    -My sex drive is through the roof.

    The symptoms are mild and I haven't had any other early first trimester symptoms other than these. Has anyone else experienced this or am I completely crazy. I am testing at the end of this week when I get paid just to be sure.

    Hi, I just wanted to know if cramps are a sign of being preg. My husband and I just started trying for two weeks now and I am cramping, feel very gasy and have mild back pain. Before I run to CVS and get a HPT I just want get some opinion here from you wonderful ladies.......I hope I am pregnant.

    Hi SarahK, I would suggest reposting your question on your own thread in the TTC forum. You'll probably get some replies over there!

    Good luck! I'm in your same situation. I've had cramping, weird twinges, headache and heartburn since 2 dpo. I am now 10 dpo. I'm thinking about testing again tomorrow morning. I got bfn at 9 dpo, that might have been too early!?!??!

The heartburn went away pretty quickly but the nausea took its place. I also had some cramping. Why I thought this cycle was different was because I cramped for half an hour at 8DPO and I never cramp until I'm in the throws of AF.

    My boobs didn't start to get sore until week 6. STILL cramping at 8 weeks and for the most part, it feels EXACTLY like AF cramps. The cramps are due to the uterus stretching.

    So, at the time of my BFP, I had:
    heartburn

    I did not have:
    sore boobs
    peeing a lot
    nausea
    moodiness
    cravings
    thirsty
    gas

    None of those symptoms started until the 6 week mark and they are getting progressively more serious as time goes on.

    I found FRER (First Response) gave me the best line out of the three different brands I used. The digital came up + at 12DPO also. The $ store test was also positive (faint) but it was the FRER that came up quickest and left me with no doubt whatsoever.

    Hope that helps girl.
    Well I am due for my cycle on Sun 2/29/09 took a test on Thursday BFN...but just have been extremely tired and have heart burn everyday for the past 4 or 5 days...so maybe there is hope..lol...Im not taking another test until Sunday when Im suppose to get my cycle..keep your fingers crossed for me...my breast hurt at times kinda hard to explain the feeling...noticed my nipples are darker almost a purple color which is not normal and seem larger...we will see....your story gave me hope cause after the BFN I was like nope not this month my DH said he thinks I need to wait to see if I get my cycle..so i will try again......

    Hi Ladies,

    I am new on here and am glad to have people to talk to. We have been TTC since Nov/08. I had a m/c in Sept/08. I am hoping this is my month(aren't we allI am currently 9dpo and did an early HPT(equate brand and also First Response)and got a very faint BFP on both. The equate was darker than the Fisrt Response.I am going to TRY to wait 2 days and take another. These are my symptoms:5 dpo-metallic tast,dry mouth,sore breasts nausea. 6dpo-same as 5 but add cramping on rt lower pelvic region and backache rt lower. 7dpo and 8 dpo same symptoms. 9 dpo- add tiredness, veiny breasts and headache followed by a mid morning very faint BFP with Equate and follwed by early afternoon vert faint BFP by First Response.
    I am hoping these ++ stay that way. Have any of you had faint ++ early on followed by BFN later?? Should I wait 1 day or 2 to take another test?

    HA HA ok i figured out a way to describe the breast pain (im 8 weeks) if you have a bruise and keep pressing it....thats what my boobs feel/felt like, does that help with the "breast tenderness" description?

    I had a faint BFP and went to my doc the same day and my HCG was only 45, so it was super early. I am now 8 almost 9 weeks along and everything is fine!

    Hello everyone, I'm new to this, but, my last mc was on 01/03/09 and have had sore/tender nipples, tired, craving sweets, backaches and headaches and going to the bathroom more than usual. I took two hpt, both were negative. I think I might be pregnant but the thing is I had my tubes tied over 14 years ago. Could I be pregnant or just crazy. Please help

    Yodiva, anything is possible. Your tubal was done over 14 years ago? They did it different than they do now, so there is a possibility, However I would recommend you seeing your OB/GYN to make sure its not a tubal pregnancy. Its defiantly possible though seeing how you got pregnant in Jan.

    I'm sorry I meant to say my last menstual cycle(mc) was 01/03/09. Right now waiting for the results from the doctor, their system is down because of the weather. The waiting is driving me crazy. I already have five children (twins 14, 15, 18 and 20) and also a grandmother.

    Default Early Preg Symptoms

    Well these were my early pregnancy symptoms. I felt like I was pregnant on 6 dpo but then by 10 dpo I was sure I wasn't because I hadn't tested positive yet. I know I was searching these boards trying to figure out if what I was feeling was a symptom of early pregnancy.

    My LMP was on 2/9/09. I am guessing that I ovulated on day 14, 2/22/09, but I'm not sure.
    I first noticed symptoms of feeling light headed and really thirsty on 2/27/09 (5 DPO).
    On 6DPO I began light brown spotting. This continued until 11 DPO and on the last day was dark enough to stain my underwear.
    12 DPO I was out to eat and couldn't finish my food because I began feeling sick to my stomach.
    13 DPO my back began aching. I had a headache, cramps, and was tired. I tested several times before and received BFN but on 13 DPO I received my BFP using First Response Early Result test. I took 1 more to make sure.
    I was due to start my period 14 DPO, today! My back aches, I'm thirsty, dizzy when I first stand up, and feel a bit nauseated but not enough to actually vomit. And of course I feel very excited!! Good luck everyone!

    You might want to post a new thread about this. It will probably get noticed better. I am by no means a pro on this subject, but I would say that you could be PG. How long are your cycles on average? Have you taken a test yet?

    I am new to this and would really like to hear some opinion on my situation.

    Last Period: 2/1/09 (Side bar: I am very regular, exactly 26 to 27 days exactly, never more or less) Next period was due 2/26

    I did cycle one of Clomid.

    I O on 2/16; Dr. recommended me and DH get together and then for me to go to his office within 2 hours of us having relations so he can do something. Unshowered (yuck), but he is a Doctor. Anyway, did what he said. He used a catheder of some sort to help the swimmers up some and told me to lay there for about 15 minutes and then to go home relax and wait and see if this takes.

    Well 2/26 came and went, 2/27 came and went.....I am never late.

    I got so excited that I did a HPT. Negative. Now about 10 tests later, still negative. Doctor says to wait and see until next week, because it may be too early still since we know something happened on the 16th; but I am going crazy.

    My symptoms the week after 2/16: Tender Nips (which have gone away), lite cramping (a little bit at night) and slight headache (comes and goes), extremely tired (constant). Oh and really bad heartburn (every morning).

    I have heard that there are some women who get negative test results with HPT, and needed blood work to confirm their pregnancies.

    Anyone....Thoughts.

    Thank you in advance, and sorry for going on so long.

    I am popping in from STC and Medical Assistance--right now 10DPO first cycle on femara
    Gross question--constipation--a pregnancy sign? I usually go everyday around the same time. This week I have only gone twice. (sorry so gross). Plus it feels like pressure on my lower abdomen--cramping or bowel related?
    AHHHHH...
    Trying not to get my hope up.

    I have missed my period for four weeks. I was wondering if you can have implantation after four weeks of no period. And a week before your next period is due. I had very light dark brown for three days not enough to even soak a pad just enough when i wipe. And was wondering if this could be implantation my periods are very regular and are always on the 17th of each month
