Worried, but trying to keep my cool (TMI)

Postby FierceFaerie92 » Thu Nov 03, 2011 7:46 pm

Ok this is my first month TTC...
I am very nervous and hoping me and DH are succesful. I was ovulating on around Oct. 24-27 and me and DH had intercourse everyday from Oct. 22-30. I'm not sure if I am experiencing early preg symptoms or not...but I will post what I have been experiencing thus far.
1 dpo-none
2 dpo-none
3 dpo-a bit nauseous while at work and slight cramping in lower abdomen
4 dpo-nauseous again at work, very tired, slight cramping in lower abdomen
5 dpo-extremely tired all day (like wanting to sleep all day which is unusual), stuffy nose
6 dpo-still extremely tired, took preg test (negative), still stuffy nose
7 dpo-(today) still extremely tired, took another preg test with first morning urine (negative...again), still have a stuffy nose, and cramps again in lower abdomen

I am pretty sure I tested too early but getting impatient. I used clearblue, but still probably too early. Does anyone have any ideas when I could test again? And do these sound anything like early preg symptoms?

7 dpo is too early to test, most women do not even implant until 8-10 dpo and then it takes a day or too for there to be enough hcg in urine to show on pregnancy test. I would wait until maybe 10-11dpo (but even that could be too early). Best of luck!

Ok and I am going to update a bit here...

8dpo-same symptoms as 7dpo
9dpo-tired, random pains in left hip area, feeling nauseous in early morning
10dpo-tired, still pains in left hip area, nausea, bbs starting to get sensitive
11dpo-same as 10dpo, dh says bbs look rounder and fuller they are still sensitive, and my stomach seems to have a slight firmer feeling, also nausea in early morning and having trouble getting to sleep

maybe these mean nothing, but I am getting very impatient.

Those could all very well be progesterone symptoms, the hormone that dominates the luteal phase (after ovulation, before AF). Only a test can show if it's related to pregnancy or not and if you're getting symptoms from a baby it should show on a pregnancy test. Good luck! :D
