Hi everyone. This is our first month ttc, I went off the pill April 9th, af from 12 to 15. It's May 1 and I'm feeling really sick to my stomach, almost feels like my stomach is really queasy and I have this feeling of a lump in my throat...also ewcm, and I have been having slight cramps off and on for the past few days. I thought maybe this was all side effects of going off the pill, and I didn't know how soon pg symptoms could show up. What do you all think?? Thanks!

Hi Jo, I think it could be possible. I am in a similar situation. My lmp was April 10th. I usually ovulate early around day 10. So if we're pg, we're probably about 2 weeks past conception. I've been having lots of cramps. Doesn't usually happen for me until after AF starts. Also a little queasiness. I think if you have symptoms, act as if you are PG and take a test in a week or two. How long are your cycles generally? Mine are about 25 days....

hi julie....well I'm not sure how long they will be now that I'm off the pill...I was on it for 5 years, and af always came either the tuesday or wednesday of the inactive if I go by that, I should start May 10, but I really have no idea I guess. My cramps are in my lower back and lower tummy, and usually I only get cramps when I start af, and I haven't had anything yet not even any spotting. I keep going to the bathroom thinking it's going to start, and there's nothing there. It's off an on though, like right now I am not cramping at all. I tried to watch my cm this month, to see if I could tell when I ovulate, but it started probably the 21 of April and hasn't gone away. This is my first month ttc and first month off the pill, so I don't really know what my cycle is like every month yet. It's frustrating! When are you going to test?
