For those that are or have been pregnant, did you have symptoms before BFP or missed period? What were yoru symptoms? (I know everyone is different.)
I’m trying to be logical and not get my hopes up. But holy headaches batman! I usually don’t get headaches (I get migraines sometimes, but rarely a standard headache), and have had them 3 out of the last 4 days. I also had cramps around 6 DPO. **crosses fingers**
(And I figure since I post this, AF will show up in the next day or so to prove me wrong.)
I didn’t have cramps until a couple of days before my missed period but I did have a ton of headaches and I was super tired. I constantly felt like I had a hangover. I also just felt different and a few days before my missed period my stomach felt kind of fluttery. I didn’t get a positive result until three days after my missed period though.
My BFP was not a sticky baby, but in any case, I had very sore breasts and cramping for about 5 days before I tested. I tested at 14 dpo.
Honestly, it was all my normal AF symptoms. Bloated, crabby, tired, lots of mucus/discharge, kind of crampy and uncomfortable. Then, my boobs got sore and that’s when I knew something was up.
I got my BFP like 4 days before my period was due.
I felt like I was coming down with a cold, was burping like crazy, and my hands and feet felt like they were super hot. I was walking around holding a cup of ice!
I got my BFP 5 days before my period was due.
7-8 DPO – constipated
8 DPO – bad headache
9 DPO – implantation cramp (or what I think were) – it was a few sharp cramps accompanied by tingling down my leg
10/11 DPO – crampy (but I am always a little crampy before AF)
11 DPO – gassy
12 DPO – BFP (the day before my period was due). I didn’t test before then (too many months of negatives discouraged me) so I don’t know if I would have gotten a positive earlier.
Honestly I felt like all of my symptoms could have been related to AF or anything else! The only thing that had me hopeful was the cramps that I felt on 9DPO. Would have been too early for PMS and the tingling thing was just freaky.
After my BFP, started feeling hungover and HUNGRY – constantly. Maybe at like 17 DPO my nipples started looking bigger and darker. Breast tenderness didn’t really kick in until like 5 weeks pregnant (21DPO).
I took an HPT days before my period was supposed to come. In fact, my period was so irregular that I had no idea when it was going to come…but I just knew I was pregnant from my symptoms.
DAYS after conception my nipples were sore, and I couldn’t stand certain smells. I also had headaches, which I never get. I took an HPT and found out I was pregnant at 3 weeks, 5 days.
I had nausea with both pregnancies before a positive test (this one, my first day of nausea came at 10 DPO).
The week after ovulation, I slept so much. I also had some sharp cramping that week I would assume was implantation. I took a test that Sunday and a faint positive popped up followed by an immediate positive on the digital.
I was EXTREMELY exhausted a week before my BFP, could barely make it through the day. And I was ravenously hungry. I would get woozy and lightheaded once or twice a day. And I was HOT all the time, whether it was sitting in my office or in bed at night. All of those things made me suspicious, so 2-3 days before my missed period I kept testing (and getting BFNs). I think by 1 or 2 days past my expected AF date, I got my BFP.
Starting at about 10DPO my nipples were super sore (it felt like they were being stabbed by tiny pins), I was exhausted all of the time, I was really bitchy, and I was insanely congested. I got my BFP the day after my period was due.
This is good to know as I’m fighting a beast of a sinus headache right now at 9 DPO or so. Ever since going on prenatals, my health has been awesome with the sinus stuff rarely happening. This is the first it’s happened to me in a long time. I’m fighting a big headache right now. I went to bed early last night too. I keep telling myself that it’s nothing to avoid any disappointment.
To be completely honest, I had more “symptoms” every month for the 18 months we were trying than the one month I was actually pregnant.
I remember that my boobs were pretty tender from 4dpo on and I had cramps that steadily got more painful. I was also super tired all day no matter how much sleep I got. The thing that popped out most to me though was that I was (TMI ALERT) pretty constipated and I NEVER have that issue. I remember reading an article the night before my bfp about how progesterone slows down you digestive system and a lightbulb went off.
I got my BFP at 3w4d- I had EXTREMELY sore breasts starting at 3w2d- they hurt so bad that I knew something was going on… I also had a stuffy nose, and lower back ache, which is really unusual for me. I knew without a doubt that I was pregnant before I even got home and tested. It even showed up that early in the late afternoon without holding my pee. (sorry for all the TMI, but you asked!)
