I can’t talk from experience with Clomid, but I do know that your symptoms can change from cycle to cycle, or you can have one funky cycle thrown in even if you’re body is normally like a well-oiled machine.  Fun, isn’t it?  I normally have very consistent LP symptoms, but I’ve had one or two cycles that totally made me think I might be pregnant (and I wasn’t).  I’m actually having one right now, but unless we have a condom houdini on our hands, I’m not knocked up 😛

Unfortunately, it’s too early to know if it’s pregnancy or Clomid or just a weird cycle.  But fingers crossed for you that this is the cycle you’ll get your BFP!

@lovelyrose:  I had cramping around 7dpo the cycle that I got pregnant. Fingers crossed that this is your cycle!

i am in the TWW on cycle 4, also 6DPO today.

the first two cycles, i symptom spotted like a crazy woman from 1DPO.  then cycle 3, i told myself to relax.  i didn’t have too long to wait because AF came 5 days early.

this cycle, i’ve had absolutely no symtoms until 5DPO when i got cramps.  I am very afraid AF was going to come early again this time but so far, no AF and no spotting that I’ve had all cycles of TTC in the few days leading up to AF.

FX for you.

Like you said, it’s hard to say what symptoms may be pregnancy and what may be AF.  They really are similar.  When I got my BFP, I thought for sure AF was coming tomorrow.  I never “felt” pregnant until much later.  

You have some choices.  You can test early (I got a faint line on an FRER at 10DPO) or you can wait until after AF is due.  I honestly wish I’d waited.  I never felt “safe”.  I worried it would be chemical and then you know SO early and have to keep it a secret that much longer!  I’m 11 weeks and have known since around 4!  It’s a long time!

All being said, it’s incredibly tempting and I couldn’t blame you if you tested early!   Give it at least 4 days and STAY AWAY from digital until after you missed AF!  FX and keep us posted!
