I cannot believe I am adding to this site!
This website is great- helped me recognize so many things.
I had a ton of symptoms, but at times it just felt a lot like AF on her way.
I never had sore boobs, never felt queasy, didn't feel much exhaustion at all until 12 dpo.
1 dpo- had flutters in lower left. Thought it was my imagination. But had never felt it before.
2 dpo - had a crazy, vivid dream that I was getting in a fight with a squirrel (what the!!??) and woke up trying to punch the air. This was such a strange and vivid dream, that it was honestly my first clue.
3-6 dpo - severe back pain and bloated. No sore bbs.
(4dpo I was in a meeting and all of a sudden got a huge wave of exhaustion. I yawned SO big and said out loud, "I don't know WHY I am suddenly so tired". Then it disappeared. This was very odd for me... and it was a big red flag for me)
7 dpo- bloated, sore back. strong sense of smell. I was in a meeting with a pregnant woman and we both smell grilled chicken way across the room, but nobody else smelled it, and people thought it was funny we both had decided that it was specifically grilled chicken! Dh didn't smell things that I could smell - an open bag of nuts, or like sitting at the bar eating dinner, I felt like the bar tender was muddling mint right under my nose.
8po- sore back. very strange bloating and tugging sensations on lower left. Nothing like I have ever felt. I was so bloated after dinner that I looked about 4 mo. Felt like a house, really.
9dpo- Strong "pulling" cramps again. Felt pregnant. Bloating. sore back. slightly bleeding gums (rare for me) Had dreams that I was pregnant and was telling my family. Vivid dreams every night in fact. Screamed at Husband oops.
10 + 11dpo Not much of anything, just sore back, bad bloating. Was more tired. Yelled at DH for waking me up. Not normal!
12dpo - Woke up hungry. Implantation bleeding. in the AM it seemed obvious to me that that is what it was bc it was very pink and there were a couple of spots, like literally a dot, but as the day went on it seemed stronger and I thought for sure it was AF. I started feeling very tired, more hungry, went to bed early, had heart burn during the night (very rare) woke up tired.
13dpo (today). Woke up hungry. Had more spotting this AM, was browny-pink and thought AF was early because my boobs were suddenly sore and I hated my clothes and was irritated by all the things that usually get me going with AF. I bought a Digital Clear Blue on the way to work...BFP!! woo hoo! Jumped up and down in the bathroom at work....!
BABY DUST TO ALL!!
