I am now on 18 DPO and I have been having pregnancy symptoms since 12DPO:
Dizziness, headaches, big nosebleed (I do get them but haven’t had one in ages), nausea, exhaustion (Only a few weeks ago I was able to run 5k, now it’s a struggle to walk about 3), tiredness (napping during the day which is never like me), disliking foods I used to love, smells making me feel sick, tender boobs (on and off), emotional, trousers feeling tighter (especially my slim jeans which have fitted me fine even when I weighed more than I do now – those I have to wear undone), bloating, and a “full” feeling in my uterus/lower abdomen.
I have had bleeding on and off for a few days but it was much, much lighter than my period has ever been – I’ve been regular since day dot. There’s also been cramping but, from reading other people’s threads/comments that seems to be normal as the uterus stretches itself. So, from all these symptoms you’d think I’d have had loads of BFPs…nope, not one. I’ve done own brand, digital, FR…all of them are adamant I am not. There isn’t even a squinter.
I am off to the doctors on Tuesday to talk to them and ask them for a blood test because I know it shows up in your blood sooner than your urine, by that point I shall be 5 weeks 1 day (based on LMP calculations).
All my symptoms are pointing towards pregnancy and, in my mind, there are 4 possible outcomes:
1. I am pregnant but my hCG levels are too low to be detected yet.
2. I was pregnant but lost it and haven’t realised.
3. It’s something else.
4. All these symptoms are in my mind and my body is playing tricks on me.
So are there any Bees who have been in my situation (pregnancy symptoms but BFNs)?
What was the outcome? If it was pregnancy, how long before your POAS turned +?
If it wasn’t, what was the reason for your symptoms?
How did you keep yourself from going insane/doubting your own body?
I am 90% sure I’m pregnant (never been pregnant before but I have this strong conviction) but everytime it’s a BFN it does make me doubt, as I imagine it has with others in this situation. Your words of comfort/advice would be lovely, thanks.
