Hi bees! Has anyone experienced back pain as a sign of very early pregancy? I have never had back issues, and while I have been doing p90x, this didn’t start until my recovery week and has persisted. It is probably too early to test, as well. I have had back pain from mid to lower back for almost a week. AF recently went irregular but I believe I am 1 week post O and 1 week til AF. I am not a symptom spotter as we are NTNP and I hate being too “symptom spotty” but I have had nausea shortly after waking up for the past 2 days (like needing to will myself not to vomit) and I have had burning breast pain in one breast for the past few days, which today has spread to both.
Im ok if I’m not KU and would be thrilled if I am, and I don’t want to test yet since I don’t expect AF for another few days. Has anyone experienced anything similar?

@AnonymousCupcake: I had back pain from 5DPO to 13DPO last cycle as well as nausea and sore breasts.. I was convinced I was pregnant and I wasn’t.. I know it’s hard not to analyze symptoms but unfortunately they don’t usually mean anything. I don’t get a sore back until only one day before AF so it was weird for me too.. I would wait to be closer to AF to test

@AnonymousCupcake: If you’ve had back pain for a whole week, that means you’ve had it since O, so that wouldn’t be a sign of pregnancy – probably exercise related. And the other symptoms that you describe have been since 5DPO, which is really early for implantation to have happened, so highly unlikely that they are pregnancy related. That being said, even if they are symptoms of pregnancy, that doesn’t mean that you won’t be pregnant this cycle! If you haven’t been ‘trying,’ I’d wait until AF is due to test.. BFNs suck and tests get spendy! 🙂

Oh gosh I’m definitely waiting to test!! I’m only asking because of the back pain, which I have never had before (and I haven’t been on BC in about 3 years) plus the boob pain/itches.

I had/ still have back pain and I got a BFP last week. I had lots of really weird symptoms (for me) really really early. I’m not entirely sure how many DPO it started but the constant peeing started as soon as I started TTC- UTI came back neg, so it was just weird. My guess is back pain started around 2DPO.
Last fall though I had back pain, cramps, etc. Turns out it was a UTI, but none of the other classic symptoms like burn when going.
FX for you! 🙂
