DH and I did the deed about a week ago. My period has always been irregular; about every 22-24 days. My estimated ovulation days were around the 19th-24th. Since my period is always so irregular, I’m not too sure what day would’ve been the exact ovulation day. I had just written a post previous to this one a couple of days ago about being gluten intolerant and not being able to distinguish pregnancy symptoms and gluten.
I’ve been eating very well this pass week and haven’t had too many symptoms besides the ones I’m use to, but the last two days I’ve been having these crazy symptoms. Trying not to get my hopes up but they are obvious, odd symptoms that I had not felt before. (Maybe wishful thinking out of excitement and being impatient) but I will just list them from the last two days:
•Really bad heartburn usually at night without eating anything
• Sharp cramp like pains in lower abdomen and back, slightly different than period cramps and slight firm bloatness (4am)
• pain on one side of abdomen (usually left side) comes and goes (through out the day; off and on)
• burping like crazy
• tingling in my legs, thighs yesterday morning
• feeling in my throat like I need to vomit but just burp
• yesterday my mucous fluid was light creamy texture
• this morning a clear, sticky mucous fluid
• this morning woke up with a sharp pain headache
Last few days I’ve had a complete gluten free diet and have not experienced the usual bloating/gassy symptoms. and just the last two days I’ve been having these symptoms that don’t feel like the symptoms I’ve had before due to eating gluten.
I know I might be getting my hopes up and was not trying to think too much into this, but these symptoms are so much different from what I’ve experienced in the past. My DH swears I’m pregnant. He says he knows it and has a strong gut feeling. Scary thing is that he’s usually right with his gut feelings. But i haven’t told him about all my symptoms or that I think I can be pregnant; I just don’t want to get his hopes up too. Any opinion with be great. Thank you!

newbeelove: I’m sorry but I don’t think those are pregnancy symptoms. It’s a bit too early, and usually the #1 early symptom is sensitive nipples and you haven’t mentioned that. A few of the others (headache, burping, heartburn, abodmen pain) sound more like you’re a little unwell. I hope I’m wrong though!

Probably too early for symptoms (if you’re only a few days past ovulation) but anything is possible. Try a pregnancy test in a few days. Do you chart? It might help.

I think it’s too early to have pregnancy symptoms. For me, at three weeks, I was having agonizingly, painful sensitive nipples and nausea.
Maybe wait a week and see if anything changes, or new symptoms appear. Then take an EPT.

I have a gluten allergy and have been gluten free for 8 years now. I know you are hoping that it’s early pregnancy symptoms but to me it sounds like your body is cleaning itself of the gluten. It takes a good week or so for it to be completely out of your system on a completely gluten free diet, and it also can take months for your intestines to fully recover (especially if it’s celiacs). It’s also worth mentioning that untreated celiacs (being on a non gluten free diet with CD) can cause infertility, irregular periods, misscarriage (late in pregnancy too) and early labour so if you suspect you have it, I would get myself checked out asap to improve your chances as doctors usually recommend CD sufferers to be completely gluten free for at least 6 months to a year before TTC.
Sorry if this post sounds a bit negative, it’s not meant to be at all. I just know how bad it can be suffering with gluten and wish you all the best of luck in feeling better and in getting your BFP.

The clear, sticky mucous may mean that you’ve ovulated in the last day or two. The white thick stuff, that looks like lotion, is typically a sign that you’re not ovulating. Then it gets stretchy and clear and is more conducive to sperm swimming through it.

I’m sorry but I don’t really think those are pregnancy symptoms. Of course anything is possible, but it’s super early. I symptom spotted like crazy when we first started trying too (I think everyone does) and I definitely was not pregnant that month. Honestly the month I DID get pregnant I had zero symptoms except for implantation bleeding.

countingstars: The thick lotiony- creamy CM usually happens POST ovulation. It doesn’t have any significance to being pregnant or not ovulating though!
newbeelove: Your symptoms sound like mine haha. I’m 8 days post ovulation and I took a test today, BFN. Maybe take one to ease your mind? Almost all of my symptoms went away afterwards.

FreckledFox: I didn’t say the thick CM has anything to do with being pregnant. I said that it means you’re not ovulating, since that’s when you typically have the clear CM. Since she has the clear CM now, she may be ovulating or recently ovulated.

countingstars: I know! I apologize. I took your comment as saying “not ovulating” as to say she isn’t ovulating, like at all! I didn’t want to freah the OP out!

This sounds very regular to me. 2-3 difference is not irregular.

I convinced myself that I was pregnant a week ago at 3DPO because I got shaky after drinking caffeine and started breaking out. Apparently this is my body’s normal reaction to progesterone, as everything has been a BFN at 10DPO and my temps look normal, with no implantation dip. The first month is basically a mindf*** and you’ll probably think you’re pregnant and then not pregnant constantly.

Thanks everyone! I figured. You want to believe you’re having pregnancy symptoms and I think that’s what increases my symptoms. I wasn’t trying to he my hopes up, it’s just hard not to. I guess I’m just looking for symptoms. Lol.

UKbee: hello. All symptoms stopped. My breast do feel a bit firm and fuller but no tenderness or anything. I start AF in a few days. But I really don’t think I’m pregnant 🙁 I took a test yesterday, bought from the dollar store. BFN. I guess we’ll just have to keep trying. Thanks for asking! Oh and I have been having more odorless discharge as normal when I wipe. But don’t think it’s really anything.
