This is my third cycle of ttc. My period is due on Monday the 15th. I have had a lot of br___t tenderness since Tuesday, but it comes and goes. I have also had cramping almost everyday since last Thursday. Heartburn has been my worst symptom. It is all day long, no matter what I eat. Has anyone else had symptoms this early? i am on day 26 of a 30 day cycle.

I don't know if i am pregnant or not but i have some ymptoms that could mean i am, and i'm not due on my period till wednesday 17th. I have looked into it and apparently the change in hormones means you can get symptoms prety much straight away after concepton, although I wish the increase in hormones would be enough to get an accurate test!

yeah I read that symptoms can start as early as 2-14 days after conception! good luck

My period is also due to start the 17th but I don't think it will! I started the brownish spotting last night accompanied by light various cramps and bloated feeling. My b___bs aren't really hurting but they seen a little swolen and my nipples are darkening a little. I have also had some heartburn. We've been trying forever and are reluctant to get our hopes up. I sware I knew over a week ago I was pregnant and my hubby thought I was crazy. It's too early to take a urine test, so the wait is killing me. Also my stomach is tighter or harder than before - does anyone else feel that - because it never seems to get mentioned?

YES!!! i definitley feel my tummy, below my navel is firmer than before... i hope it's not just being pre-menstrual!

 

Karen - November 13

Yes, that's where my stomach is tight. I feel so bloated but it's completely different than a period. I'm also ga__sy. I noticed that a week ago and knew it was weird because I rarely had gas before. Annaliese, what other symptoms do you have? and Nick have you taken a urine test yet? You might be able to take an early response test today and tomorrow.

i my b___sts are a little sore, and I did feel nauseous a few days ago, i'm not due a period till wednesday 17th, i don't want to get my hopes up as it may all be in my head. FINGERS CROSSED EVERYONE!!!

Karen I am due to start AF on Thurs the 18th. Today I had some slight brownish streaks when I wiped and using the bathroom. Do you really think this is an early sign of PG? Oh how I hope so! This is cycle 8 and we are so ready! How long has everyone else been trying? When are you going to test? Perhaps we can be cycle buddies and get our BFP's together! Good Luck! Amanda :o)

Hi Amanda, this is my third month of trying. The first month I m/c and the second month I was a week late, which had never happened befor. Now I was supposed to get AF yesterday. Been feeling nausious, tried, firm tummy and yesterday a matallic taste in my mouth. Just terrified of getting my hopes up. I've had a few Neg. tests.(5) so far.(paniky or what right?!). Strange thing being that I have two boys and with both I got pg the first month of trying. So this is a very new and scary world I'm in right now. A true test of patience in waiting to see what my body will do next. Good luck to you and your wait!

 

Amanda - November 14

Good luck to you too! Your symptoms sound very promising....keep us posted! Amanda :o)

I tested yesterday with a CVS test. I was anxious so I took it right after I bought it, in the afternoon-it was negative. Maybe it was too soon or too diluted or maybe I am not pregnant. I am due for my period tommorow and the closer it gets the more I am starting to think these are period cramps. I hope not. I have one test left and will take it tommorow morning. Good luck to you all and keep posting.

 

Amanda - November 14

Nick, sorry your test was neg, perhaps the urine wasn't concentrated enough. Also, some people don't produce enough HCG initially to show positive on an HPT, so you never know. It is not over until AF shows up! Good Luck! Amanda :o)

 

Karen - November 14

Hey everyone! I had a little bit of brown spotting again early today and hate the waiting game. The variuos cramping is weird too because it makes me think I'm getting my period early but that has never happened to me before. So who knows what the outcome will be by Wednesday - Nick and Veronica, it seems a lot of tests come out negative even though they say early testing. Evidently there are some that test different levels of the HCG in your urine, so if you have naturally low levels an early tesdt won't even matter. Plus if you're like me, I drink a lot of clear liquids especially water and that can dilute your levels. I'm going to early test in the morning but am wondering if it will even show up. Then I'm going to get a blood test one day this week. Annaleise and Amanda when are you going to test?

 

veronica - November 14

Thanks Karen, I know I'm weak and wouldn't be able to stop myself from testing the next time I go to bed with bad nausia so I swore my husband to hide the last, and sixth, test I have until the 20th whenI will be i week late. Now all I have to do is try to wait either for AF or Sat, but at least my upset tummy is keeping me good company! Let me know how everyone is doing and Good Luck!

 

Karen - November 14

I told my husband about your story hiding the tests and we laughed so hard. He keeps telling me to wait it out but if they only knew.... How's everyone else doing?

 

Amanda - November 14

Hello ladies....I think I will test Wed or Thurs (AF is due Thurs) I had another glob of 'spotting' or something, but it seems awfully early to me. I am afraid I will be getting AF early this month :( Karen, I love how your DH hid the tests! Too funny, if I had any in the house I am sure I would have tested already. I am expecting some in the mail this week so we shall see my willpower! Good Luck! Amanda :o)

 

Amanda - November 15

OOPS! I meant Veronica!! (DH hiding the tests) Sorry...
