The 2ww is killing me! I’m 10dpo (although I think I might have o a few days earlier… not using OPK). I have taken a couple HPG and they have been negative. I have been having quite a few symptoms that have had my hopes up (breast tenderness starting at 5dpo, back aches, nausea, vomiting, emotional (crying and easily irritated). I had some light spotting yesterday with no further spotting in the day or today. Since the spotting my breast tenderness has gone away! I’m still experiencing nausea, light cramping and bloating. Has anyone experienced breast tenderness to go away after implantation? I’m worried all these signs might be in my head 🙁

I wouldn’t think you should have any really symptoms before implantation occurs. Anything before that point would be related to something else…not pregnancy.
I know it’s hard, but I would try to stop reading into your symptoms. If you had some spotting and that isn’t typical for you, it sounds promising that maybe you’re on your way to a BFP! Are you charting at all? Good luck!

I don’t think you can have symptoms before implantation. I was under the impression it is implantation which triggers the hcg and thus, the symptoms. I think worrying about all of these symptoms is just exhausting, personally. They really could be anything. Just give it a few more days and then test 🙂

I agree with PP’s. You would not have any pregnancy symptoms before implantation.

pink_champagne: did you recently come off of birth control? My first month off of the pill I had CRAZY “symptoms”. Sometimes progesterone levels can cause those symptoms. Also, when TTC, many people over analyze every little thing and think they are related. For instance, nausea and vomiting could be caused by something you ate while the back aches and crying could be PMS. I’m not saying that’s what is happening to you, just be aware that we can symptom spot like crazy when TTC.

I haven’t been on birth control in years! These are just very strange symptoms for me. I don’t want to symptom spot and be disappointed. These 2 weeks are so hard! I know that HCG is present right after conception, but not detectable in urin until after implantation. I’m generally pretty sensitive to any chemical changes (i.e. a morning cup of coffee will keep me up all night, I only need a half dose of most medications). I think I’m just trying to talk it out while waiting for my expected period. This is our first month TTC and I’m nervous! Thanks for all your responses!

pink_champagne: HCG isnt produced until implantion. Which is why you cant take a pregnancy test until after implantation.

pink_champagne: I have never heard of symptoms before implantation. I would try to ignore all these symptoms or you will drive yourself really crazy, especially if it doesn’t work out for you this month. Fingers crossed that you are pregnant though 🙂

I did have a bunch of symptoms between 5-8DPO, and then they all stopped and I felt totally normal – I’m pretty sure now, though, that at that point I hadn’t implanted yet, so those symptoms were likely all due to progesterone. I’ve also had several non-pregnancy cycles where I had tons of pregnancy-like symptoms. Now (at 4weeks exactly), I’m having some real pregnancy symptoms start. It’s hard not to symptom spot, but if you do you might really upset yourself later – unfortunately, most “early pregnancy symptoms” can just as easily happen due to progesterone and simply mean you’ll be getting your period soon.

AF arrived – 5 days early… 🙁 That never happens.
@swizzle HCG is produced already by your body in small amounts and by the blastocyst before implantation – or that’s what my internet research has shown. It isn’t produced in amounts that would allow a urin test to detect it though. It can be tested by very sensitive blood tests which aren’t commonly available…
Whatever was going on with my body is different from my regular cycle. FIngers crossed for next month.
Thanks again for your support

Swizzle: so that means any syptoms you get before implantation is your period coming? is that what you are trying to say? cos pregnancy syptoms are same as your period….;just want to be sure and understand
