I was just curious as to whether it was possible to have extremely purple nipples some days and very light tinged nipples other days and be pregnant. I am going crazy here....My areolas have been super dark with the tubericle glands multiplying and veins everywhere. I have been having light cramping for about a week and a half. I think it was about 2-5 dpo...I have had waves of nausea, been super tired and moody....and STILL BFN!!! I am so confused.....I have just been "feeling different" this cycle, I feel like I am pg but I just dont know...I am due for AF today or tomorrow.....I guess I will have to wait and see.....This just really sucks!!! (Sorry, I guess I just needed to vent)

Hey Hoping! Vent away. That's what it's here for. I saw you posted on my other thread. I've gotta tell ya, I don't know if I am pg, but I certainly feel pg. Something is definitely going on this cycle. I tested yesterday (11 dpo) and got a BFN. So I'm going to test again on Monday (14 dpo). Hopefully we'll both get BFPs!!! But my veins fade in and out too. Also, my right bb, the one that is the most swollen and painful has looked purple and pornstarish (lol, sorry) but then sometimes it looks almost normal. I figured it was the lighting in my bathroom, but if you're having the same thing maybe it's not! What other symptoms do you have and since what dpo?

hoping01 - November 17th, 2007 10:45 PM

Hey Poechrisk...thanks for the response. The symptoms that I have since about 2-5dpo (I am not quite sure when I actually ovulated) are...
Extremely tired, on and off tender bbs(somedays there are shooting pains and burning sensations in them, my areolas have been way darker and on the right one it has expanded, I have veins...LOTS and LOTS of veins. They run through my areolas...I mean there is a monster one that outlines my right areola....I have had bouts of nausea..first thing in the AM and somewhat through the day and more at night.....Had many dizzy spells for about a week.....The thought of some foods make me feel sick.....Very light on and off cramping, shooting pains through pelvic area and fluttering feelings through pelvic and tummy. I have had hot flashes and VERY VERY moody. I feel so bad for my hubby. One minute I am all lovey, then I get mad or annoyed with him and then I just start think thats about it for me...I tested this AM and BFN!! :(
What about you? What are your symptoms?

hoping01 - November 17th, 2007 10:47 PM

oh ya and of course the purple nipples!!! I am so glad that there is someone out there going through the same thing as me.......I thought I was losing my mind!! lol

poechrisk - November 17th, 2007 10:56 PM

Well, I'm like you. Not completely sure when I ovulated. But I feel pretty sure I'm 12 dpo... So, with those numbers on 5 dpo I woke up with metal mouth. This is the first inkling I had that soemthing was going on this month. The metal mouth lasted until 7 dpo. On 6 dpo I noticed the Montgomery tubercles on my bbs. Very prominent, but now they have white heads on them. On 7, 8, 9, and 10 dpo my cm was white and milky, then on 11 dpo it was clear and watery, then today it's white and milky again! My cp has bounced around all over the place. I don't know what to make of it. On 9 dpo the veins became very apparent! Like you I have a MASSIVE vein circling my areola and on the other one a bright purple vein running right through very close to my nipple. I've also noticed veins on my shoulders and lower abdomen on the sides and hips. LOL, I look like a state highway map. I've had cramping off and on since 6 dpo. Runny nose since yesterday. Very, very mild nausea once or twice. I've been so irritable too! Like you, my dh is thinking about relocating, lol, to anywhere I'm not. My students are planning a witch burning ceremony for me too. So, I guess that about covers it. I was going to wait til Monday to test again, but I just can't wait. I'm going to test tomorrow morning!

poechrisk - November 17th, 2007 10:57 PM

lol, we might be losing our minds! I forgot to say, I've been constipated for about 5 days now, too. When do you plan on testing again? Would this be your first pg?

Grandpa Viv - November 17th, 2007 10:58 PM

Just because you have lots of signs from high progesterone does not mean that you will immediately get a positive test on hCG. One hormone usually rises faster than the other. Good luck!

hoping01 - November 17th, 2007 11:08 PM

Yes, this would be my first pregnancy. I have a 3yr old step daughter and I love her to bits.....We cant wait to have a child together. Will this be your first?
Now that I think about it, I noticed veins on my hips and sides of my tummy the other day....they are still that a sign? I checked cm and it was lotiony today as well....I had diariah (dont know how to spell that lol) last week for a few days and yest and today I have been a bit constipated....when I go...only a little bit comes out and it takes a HUGE effort to get that little bit out...sorry tmi!!! I have been battling a cold for about 2 weeks now.... sore throat only when I wake and nose is runny then stuffy through out the day....thats a sign too??? Wow!! You and I seem to be in the same boat...
I hope this is our month!!!!!

poechrisk - November 17th, 2007 11:18 PM

Me too! Yes, I woke up with the cold yesterday. Sore throat, but not so much sore today. I'm pretty sure it could be a good sign because your immune system goes down significantly after conception so your body doesn't reject the zygote. I really hope it a sign and not just coincidence, because I NEVER get sick. I know just how you feel about the constipation. I'm probably averaging one trip every other day. And like you, it's just a little bit! Yep, this would be our first. We've been ttc for 6 months now, I was so sadly misinformed when we started. We're both young (I'm 23 and dh is 28) I thought we'd get pg right away!

hoping01 - November 18th, 2007 11:03 AM

Hey poechrisk...Soooo? Did u test?? I have been thinking about you...I hope you got your BFP!!!
I tested this AM as well....I am not too sure what to think about the result....It was VERY VERY light pos....I mean really light barely there.....I dont know what that means...I took another one about an hour and a half was the same thing....I think I am going to wait another week and see if I can go to the DR soon. I am 1 day late now.....

Eljay - November 18th, 2007 9:19 PM

Hey there hoping! How the heck are u girl! Jst read ur thread, fingers crossed for u this month! faint bfp is a good sign!! - I got af ryt on tym this mth 28days exactly so figured my cycles are sorted out. am jst Lookin fwd to bding again this mth lol.

poechrisk - November 18th, 2007 9:38 PM

Hey hoping! No I didn't test this morning. I got up to go P 3 times last night so I didn't feel like a hpt would be accurate this morning. There wasn't enough time for my P to get concentrated. That's absolutely fantastic for you though!!! A faint pos is a positive!! I'm so excited for you! You should go to the doc right away and get a quantitative blood test! That would tell you for sure. Let me know how it goes! I'll be testing tomorrow morning. I'm holding it tonight at all costs lol.

hoping01 - November 19th, 2007 12:09 PM

Eljay-Hey there girl!! How are you?? It has been a long time!! I am sorry to hear about af showing her ugly head this month! Thats awesome that your cycles are sorted out now...I am so did u do that? I would love to know how to get mine regulated!!....
Poechrisk - Hey..I think I am going to test using poas again in a few days, just to be sure....I am not convinced just took a while for the faint pos to show up....
I was so sick this AM....I took the day off work....yesterday I was having so many dizzy spells and today I woke up more nauseous than usual and I was was aweful.....I could not shake the nausea so I didnt go in to work.....I am ok now though.....really would like to know what the heck is going on....if I am not body is VERY mean!!! lol....I will take all the symptoms if it means I am going to have a baby.....
I will keep you in my prayers that you get your BFP this month!!

Kimi - November 19th, 2007 2:38 PM

hi ladies i hope you dont mind if i join you in the wait to test. i am hoping that this month this is the real thing (of course i say that every month) i just feel like the same shit happens every time, i feel like it is it and then af comes barging in to burst my bubble. this cycle i am due for af on the 22nd and right now by boobs hurt really bad but im not sure if its any more than it usually is, i am hungry but the second i start to eat i get nauseous, i feel like im peeing all the time, ive been quite moody but only the past 2-3 days and ive had a constant dull headache all week! i swear if i get af , im crazy!!!

hoping01 - November 19th, 2007 2:47 PM

Welcome Kimi.....
I know what you mean....I swear that our bodies just get a big kick out of driving us symptoms sound promising....I am in the same boat....REALLY sucks...I just feel "different" this month.....I am sooo nauseous right sucks.....I am not sure what to think if I am not pregnant....How long have u been ttc and would this be ur first?

Kimi - November 19th, 2007 3:01 PM
