I found this site months back when I was having different PMS symptoms, and have been lurking here, eagerly anticipating writing my own 2ww story.
I'm 32, and had been on the pill for 14 years before coming off last December in anticipation of starting to try. I finally served my qualifying time at work (to get maternity) so we ditched protection last month and then went on our first holiday together.
The holiday was amazingly relaxing (we both work hectic jobs) and it turns out we've got the most amazing holiday souvenir to show!
I wanted to post here as I had hardly any symptoms, much less than usual PMS, and was so worried that my boobs weren't sore - they're usually agony about 5 days post ovulation.
O day on holiday, usual cramping on left side
1 dpo not much
2 dpo ditto
3 dpo very definite ovulation pain on right side, think first may have been wind?
4/1 dpo lots of cm
5/2 dpo lots of cm, feeling full quickly
6/3 dpo cm, OH asks if I feel pregnant, I don't :(
7/4 dpo back from holiday, mild cramping, see two tiny pin pricks of blood on pant liner, think I might be pregnant after all!
8/5 dpo wet cm but nothing else
9/6 dpo wet cm, bloated, constipated, so tired I practically nod off when reading at 11am! Need nap around 5pm
10/7 dpo still bloated, still lots of cm, worried that boobs aren't sore... Everyone says that's the first symptom!
11/8 dpo back at work, exhausted, starving hungry (tummy growling!), creamy cm, still bloated, occasional twingey feeling in abdomen
12/9 dpo starving hungry but can't eat much, boobs feel different, like they're looser (I am very flat chested, 34aa), still not sore tho. Bloated and constipated.
13/10 dpo ditto, occasional boob twinges, but still not sore, couple of spots break out
14/11 dpo still starving hungry, bloated etc, strong cramps thwart last most of the day, exactly like PMT pain. Text other half that I think period is on the way (a little early) gutted :(
15/12 dpo cramping is lighter, some brown spotting exactly like pre period, but buy pregnancy tests just in case
16/13 dpo period due bloated, lots of creamy cm (think I'm in danger of thrush) no period, boobs starting to hurt
17/14 dpo test first thing in morning. Clear blue digi with conception indicator. Longest 2 mins ever. Pregnant 1-2 weeks!
Since then, boobs have been torture! Very sore all over, tho not actually noticeably bigger yet.
Key for me was total opposite to usual PMS symptoms, bloated from word go, growling hunger and no sore boobs till period due.
Am now 5 weeks, and hunger has totally vanished, boobs really sore, moods all over.
Conceived naturally, first time (so lucky!) But with lots of holiday baby dancing. Good luck to everyone and don't panic if your boobs don't get sore like normal, could be a good sign! Xx
