Hello Ladies, I was hoping that someone here could help me put my anxious behind to rest. You see, I just got off the pill in Dec. 05 and I do want to get pregnant so you know how that goes. I will be 29 in a few weeks. Anyway, if I am right, I was supposed to ovulate on the Jan 9th I had s_x around that time so now I wondering if I am pregnant. I don’t know if it’s because I want this so much but I am feeling things already. I feel nauseous and I am producing excess saliva. I know it’s kinda early because it’s only been a week but could those signs mean I’m pregnant? Thank you.

Hi Venus ... you and I are in a very similar situation. I just came off the pill (mini pill, so progesterone only, on which you usually still ovulate usually) in late Dec. I have a 28ish day cycle and had AF on Dec 27 for about a week (normal), and should have ovulated around Jan 10th. So I am at that one week since ovulation, one week till next AF stage also and hopig to be PG, but trying to to trick myself into symptoms (did that a few time before when i forgot to take the pill!). If you ovulated on Jan 9th, and concieved, then you are just around implantation time (anywhere from 6-12 dpo, avergae is 8 supposedly). So it is poss that you are PG, but too early to test. With a early test you could give it a go at the end of the week but becuase implantation time can happen later, it might be a BFN, even if you are PG. It sucks to have to wait. i am dying to test, but the likelyhood of me getting a positive test before the weekend, is slim. So Iam trying to wait to see if AF actually shows up this time, or I will just feel slly like i always do! There are others here who have alot more experience at this than me. i haven't really posted befre but have been reading the forums for a few months and have read lots of happy and unhappy endings to the speculation every month. One thing I have noticed is an increase in cm, and it being the white lotiony kind. So this has got my hopes up. Good luck to you!! Maybe we can wait it out together!

Thank you Vilandra!! We are definitely in the same situation. I guess we just have to wait and see. I will keep you posted. I do notice the creamy stuff myself so I’m really hoping. Good luck and baby dusts to you!!

 

vilandra - January 17

Baby dust to you too Venus! I have to saw that I have had the creamy stuff before and thought it was a sign (when I forgot the pill) ... while it seems a bit more this time... I am not getting my hopes up! I am 3 years older than you (32 next week) and I can feel the old clock starting to tick! You spend so long trying not to get pg that you think that as soon as you start trying it will just happen magically right away! But al the reading I have done here tells me otherwise, so i am a bit worried that this will be a long drawn out process. Then again, I have also read fof people here who got PG straight off the pill, and those that it only took a few months for. Anyway, am trying to to diagnose symptoms. Have no cramps down these, but definatly some sort of sensation ... like something is going on!

Thanks!! I don't want to get my hopes up either b/c I know I am going to be sad if I am not. Anyway, something is definitely going on in my stomach but then again I have IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) which has symptoms like: cramps, bloating, gas etc. Sometimes I get so bloated you would think I was pg. You are so right about your statement. You spend so long trying not to get pg and when you’re finally ready you want it to happen right away :-) Anyway, good luck!!

Hi Venus & Vilandra, my name is Cat..I'm 29, finished BCP in Dec, ttc #1, ov date was 8th Jan - think I ov'd ok as had ov pain. Seems like I am in same situ as you guys - v bad cramps a few days later, v sore nips, although less sore now, cm creamy but not too excessive, feeling nauseos today now though for first time, but am thinking maybe I am having sick feeling because i want to be pg so much !!! am hving very anxious wait - I think it must be unlikely to happen so soon, but I know some people do ......know what you mean about trying not to c for so long and now cannot wait to ! Hope you girls are lucky ...... fingers crossed for us all !

It seems a little early to be feeling symptoms. If the egg did get fertilized it probably hasn't implanted yet. It typically takes 6 - 12 days (average is 9) for a fertilized egg to implant, then it takes 3 - 4 days after that to produce enough HCG hormone to be detected by a home pregnancy test. It is this hormone that causes you to feel symptoms. The best thing to do is to wait until your period is due and if it doesn't show up, take a test. Don't be fooled by the "early results" tests though...most people don't get a positive four days before their period. I used several early results tests and it wasn't positive until my period was 2 days late! No one likes to wait, but unfortunately it is something we all have to do. If there was an easier or faster way, believe me, they wouldn't need this forum!

Hi Newline/Cat, Welcome! All we have to do right now is wait. I would be so happy if I am pg. I've wanted to have a baby for about 2yrs now but the time wasn't right. My db would be ecstatic as well if I am. Our families would be so happy b/c they've been asking us when are we going to start. Baby dusts!!

 

VenusdiMilo - January 17

Thanks Deb. We understand but we’re just anxious and want to have a darn baby already :-)

Im in a similar situation myself, I was supposed to ovulate on the 9th too, and I'm feeling symptoms already. I also worry that maybe because I want this so bad I'm imagining the symptoms. We can be in this together though. AF is due on the 24th, so I'll be testing after 5 days of my missed period, maybe sooner if I can't stop myself. Lots of baby dust!!

 

Newline - January 18

Hi hopeful ! Know exactly what you mean about thinking you may be imagining things - people do apparently but maybe one of us at least might get lucky ! Deb is right though, so let's just hope for the best, but not be too down if it doesn't happen - esp after coming of the pill it might take some time..... not too much I hope !! :) Keep me posted though, all of you !!

Hi Venus... I am also in the similar situation as you. I went off the pill on 07Dec. My b___bs started to swell on 04Jan (bit pain only though). Had very light pink discharge on the tissue after I wiped away the remnance (sperm) from my v____a on 14Jan. I tested 16Jan, but was a neg. My cycles were irregular prior to pills, may be up to 40 days; so at times, I have no idea when do I exactly ovulate at times. I am also having creamy cm and slight cramps time aft time...feel as though period is coming... keeping my fingers crossed, to test it next week. Hows your symptoms today?

 

VenusdiMilo - January 18

Welcome to Hopeful and Veron! My symptoms are still here and I’ve also noticed that I’ve been feeling a lot hungrier in the morning for the past couple of days. I got up this morning to pee around 4am (around the same time yesterday) and I couldn’t go back to sleep. I was so hungry. And now my b___bs are very sensitive (not hurting) just sensitive. Have you guys been taking your folic acid? I have for the past month (400mcg) a day. I’ve heard that some people get pregnant sooner once they start taking that stuff (don’t know the facts on that) Anyway, I just can’t wait to test. I really hope that one/all of us will get some good news soon. My birthday is coming up and this would be such a great gift. Baby dust to all!!

 

VenusdiMilo - January 18

Pardon my manners. Good morning all!!

 

vilandra - January 18

Morning all! Good to see we have a few more to have joined in.

 

Newline - January 18

hi all..interesting re the folic Venus, I started that recently and am having symptoms now as well - how lucky would we be to get a BFP already !!! Fingers crossed ......

 

anoble - January 18

hi all. i feel the same way you do. my af is due the 25th of this month and i have i guess what you can consider short periods like 24 to 26 days. i swear there is something different. my legs are all cramped up all the time, im sleepy all day, but restless when im trying to go to sleep (cant get comfortable), very ga__sy and headaches that feel like they will never leave. my b___bs dont hurt too bad which is odd because they usually hurt a lot around this time. and i have been having weird dreams for the past few days. so i dont know whats going on. the other night when dh and i were bd'ing he said i felt different on the inside and he was feeling thing he hasnt felt before. so what ever that means. im just ready for the whole wait to be over and done with so i can know what the answer is.
