I had an early miscarriage last year where I started bleeding and cramping right in the middle of a friend's wedding we'd travelled to in Malaysia - traumatic was an understatement. I'm feeling really positive this time and hoping this one sticks. I'm just shy of 5 weeks now and it feels very different - way more symptoms and no bleeding at all so far. I know the 2ww can play havoc with your brain! So I hope this helps some of you ladies.

6 dpo- v v tired when waking up, vivid dreams, slight pinching in lower right abdomen, creamy cm, cramps, gassy, need to go to the loo lots, v bloated, emotional, cried at tv show, cold and shivery.
7dpo (implantation?) - v sharp twinges overnight, v gassy, hot, couldn't sleep, woke up starving, burping (weird for me), almost sick this morn, napped for 3 hours (v unlike me), cold and shivery, need to wee lots, generally felt quite ill.
8dpo - nipples a bit sore, gassy, bloated, need to wee lots, vivid dreams, couldn't stomach wine (also unlike me...), hated the smell of cigarettes when I walked past someone smoking it made me gag, boiling at night.
9dpo - stomach rumbling at 6am and had to have some toast and then go back to bed, burpy, v creamy cm, need to wee lots, vivid deeams and very hot last night, dreamt of bfp, cervix has now gone high soft and closed, bloated, sore boobs, twinge of deep pain around lunchtime, tired, v hot at night.
10dpo - tired, sore boobs. Was very busy all day so didn't note many symptoms.
11dpo - tired and sore boobs. Very faint BFP (big fat positive (pregnancy test)) on ic!!!!!
12dpo - felt a bit sick, tired in morning, having to wee lots in night and day, sore boobs, darker nipples, another positive ic and CB digital (1-2 weeks) in morn, positive on FRER in pm
13dpo - woke up feeling sick, darker on FRER darker on ic, cramps.
14dpo - cramps, tired, sore boobs
15dpi - severe cramps, tired
16dpo - severe cramps
16 - bad cramps, tired
17 dpo - such a bad cold feel like death, lots creamy cm since bfp (increased a lot after 14dpo), cramps.
18dpo - FRER and ic tests gradually getting darker, v bad cramps in morning.
19dpo - very nauseous this morning, hungry, ic tests finally getting quite dark. CB digital still says 'pregnant', lots of white creamy cm.
For me the major symptoms this time were - the cramping (it felt like quick, sharp pinching before bfp and now it's like growing pains in my uterus - mainly in the evenings), lots of creamy cm, gassy, needing the loo more, cervix didn't drop and open as it usually does before AF (Aunt Flo - menstruation/period) - it went hardish and closed around 14dpo and now at 19dpo is high soft and closed. I never had any implantation bleeding.
With my chemical, I also had a bfp at 11dpo but it was very faint and gradually faded away by 14dpo. With this one, the lines are strong and getting darker. Never as dark as control line but def increasing. Also, with my chemical my only symptom was burning nibbles for 2 days and literally nothing else. This time I haven't had that at all. They do say every pregnancy is different!
I hope this helps someone and baby dust to you all! Keep your fingers crossed for a sticky bean for me xxx
