Hi all, I just wanted to ask a quick question, I had my last period on April 11th making me due on Saturday coming, I was wondering if you can have signs of pregnancy this early, I have a few but I dont want to get my hopes up too much, Please can you help?

I think you can. It all depends on when you ovulated. The best thing to do is to not think about it (I know it is impossible) other wise you start seeing signs that aren't there. Theoretically you ovulated around the 24th or 25th. It takes 6-12 days from conception for the egg to implant so that takes us to this saturday for the first time you may see implementation bleeding or major symptoms. The length of your normal cycle affects things a lot. I had my last period on April 12th, so I am in the same boat as you. I think I ovulated last Friday though, so I have some time.....hate waiting!

Hi Jen, thanks for answering I had atiny tiny amount of blood this morning but nothing there when I wiped you think this is a sign? amongst other things I mean can you have nausea etc so soon?

It could be impementation bleeding. How long are your cycles normally? You can def have nausea etc soon, but some people have no symptoms at all, so try not to over think it (something I am often guilty of, but just end up driving myself nuts).

also, how long have you been TTC? Are you taking your temp? It is a bit of a pain, but keeps me in check cause if your temps fall it is game over....no fooling yourself.

just realized I am being very negative. The bleeding sounds very positive.....I am just trying to keep my hopes in line.....I often get my hopes up because of all my 'signs', but then nothing.

My cycles are normally 26 days on average, I dont take my temprature as I am not worried, If I am pregnant I will be over the moon but if not I will keep trying and it will happen when it happens! But I am getting frustrated so much because this feels like the time! :( Dont know what to think!

I know the feeling. I have never been a 'have to have a baby' type, but it is hard to go through this process. You want get preg, so u do certain things to help that along, then u start seeing signs that u did it right and it worked, and then u find out that it didn't. Can be very defeating. So I have started to try to figure out when I am ov through temping which also helps me know when to stop getting my hopes up. A 26 day cycle is nice and short. Your bleeding can be anything, but keep me posted on your symptoms. I have waisted a lot of time reading things, so may know something....

Thanks Jen will let you know of any outcome as soon as poss! so whats the story with you?

Well I have been ttc for 3 months. Been off the pill for 3 months, so all kinds of weird things have been going on with my body. I had positive opk test on day 15 and 16 of this month, but temps didn't rise till day 18, so I think that is when I ovulated. Don't have any symptoms yet, but of course am looking for them. Luckily I am going away this weekend which should distract me. The week or 2 between est. ovulation and expected period is always the hardest!! I also have to take next month off because of a test I am studying for, so would really like for this to be the 'the' month.

Well all the best of luck and if its not to be this month dont worry you will get there eventually! Email me if you want?
