I understand the obsessive forum searching, the praying, the signs and symptom checkers, the hundreds of dollars spent on prego tests. It's torture but I completely understand 100%. But the one thing I understand the most is seeing a BFN each and every time you take a test. That feeling of being let down, holding the test in every angle possible and under different lights, praying you'll see even the faintest positive, I completely get it...so that's why I'm posting. To help you see my very early symptoms...
Ovulation day - my lower stomach hurt so bad like in the groin area. I felt like I had extreme gas that was stuck.
1 dpo - cramps, abdominal pain, fatigue, bloating, dizziness, constipation, hot flashes, acne, headaches
2 dpo - one beer, felt tipsy
Itchiness, woke up in the middle of the night HOT and itchy from head to toe, bloating, gas, insomnia, moodiness, fatigue, breast sensitivity
3dpo - nothing
4 dpo - rash on upper stomach, sternum area, breast sensitivity and tenderness, itchiness, especially on back, acne and cm
5 dpo - itchy, fatigue, insomnia, moody, abdominal cramps, acne, breast sensitivity and tenderness, rashes, gas, irritable, anxiety, lower backaches, bloating, unable to concentrate, cramps, cm, chills, confusion, dizzy, HOT
6dpo- ab cramps, itchy, stress, rashes, moody, queasiness, backaches, cm, cramps, dizzy, gas, irritable, acne, bloating, breast sensitivity and tenderness, heartburn, headaches
7 dpo - extreme exhaustion, legs feet and hips were killing me, it felt like I had worked out HARD for the first time in years, I went to bed at like 9 that night when normally I go to bed around 11-12. Moderate AF cramps, weepy, slightly nauseated, very sensitive boobs, felt wet down there, craving for tomatoes, green veggies like spinach and lettuce, itchy scalp, ab cramps, backache, body aches, cm, fatigue, queasy, bloating, breast sensitivity and tenderness, cramps, chills, dizzy, gas, headache, hot flashes
8 dpo major cramps right above pelvic bone, frequent urination, headache, exhausted, slight nausea, (ended up with a severe cold) pulling, tugging sensation in uterus, heighten sense of smell in evening, pain in ovary, had a dream that I had a bfp but wasn't sure if my partner was the father or a gay man that I work with, backache, bloating, body aches, cramps, acne, breast sensitivity and tenderness, cm, gas, moody, muscle pain, constipation, shoulder pain, heartburn, chills, queasiness, neckpain, spotting/bleeding thought for sure AF was near, hot, headache, irritable
9dpo - vivid dream, 3 tests, one in am and 2 in evening... all BFN...The two in the evening were VERY FAINT POSITIVE after allowed time, evap? And they only SLIGHTLY looked positive if held at certain angles and in certain light...no guarantee...I was positive it was positive but the test still said negative...the second line was almost invisible on both...it's weird because the two test I took in the evening were negative but very slightly appeared positive and the first one I took was very negative...but I kept those tests and almost a month later, the two I took that day that ALMOST appeared positive are completely negative and the one I took in the am is now very positive...anyway, I had the same old symptoms, backache, moody, itchy, cramps, hot flashes, insomnia, gas, I also had a dream my partner said "it's postive" but it wasn't his voice...like a very deep, loud voice, yet it sounded far away...
10dpo- two bfps!!! Couldn't believe it so I took a digital one the next day... tugging in stomach, white nipples? Very sore boobs, hot, back pain, body aches, cm, dizzy, fatigue and hunger, cervical firmness, migraines, acne, bloating
11dpo- took a digital with morning urine...PREGNANT! Craving for peanut butter, bananas and V8 juice, hunger, insomnia, breast sensitivity, cm, hot, cramps, queasiness, backaches, bloating, cramps, gas, headaches, dizziness, irritable
Then I stopped keeping track. But overall, the acne and itchiness were major symptoms for me. I also had a feeling of knowing...but with uncertainty. A lot of women are certain but i felt i knew but with uncertainty. So I don't really consider myself to be one of those women who "knew" Plus, I was very clumsy too...and it seems to be getting worse...I'm about a month along and I drop everything...I'm all thumbs. My boobs are sore and FULL 24/7. I'm constantly tired and going to bed around 9-10. I find it hard to make simple decisions. But ladies, don't give up hope. I was just like you searching for any and all early signs. I was obsessed. It will happen...my timing was TERRIBLE...Very long story but it seems to happen at the strangest moments.
