This is my first TWW so I’m definitely cautiously optimistic but I am so bloated today and crampy. I’m only 2 DPO so I didn’t know if it was even possible for them to by symptoms. They aren’t PMS yet since i’m still 10 days out from that. Any advice?

Unfortunately, unless you ovulated earlier than you think you did, I think it’s too early. Implantation usually happens 6-12 dpo, and I don’t think you would have any symptoms before that. Hang in there!!

to answer your question – most likely yes. Some people say they’ve had symptoms from conception, but I think for the majority of people, 2 dpo is a bit early.

I had bloating from the hormonal issues when I stopped taking birth control pills. If that’s your situation, drinking a lot water is supposed to help.

I was going to say something similar to MsDownwarddog…Did you just get off BC? I felt “pregnant” bigtime my whole first cycle of bc. I was CONVINCED I was pregnant! I just knew it! Nope. BFN. It took a while for my body to feel “normal” again.
At 2DPO, I don’t really think so. You don’t even start producing hcg until after implantation has occurred, which is typically 6-12 DPO.
I hope you feel better though! Or even better – I hope you feel more pregnant, and that you actually are!

Some people feel crampy and bloated when they ovulate! Get back in bed just in case!!! 🙂

I do think it’s too early, but one thing I’ve discovered over the months is that my body goes through a lot of changes during the TWW. I used to think that the day or two before AF showed I’d get some cramps and that’s it. But once I looked at my cycles under the microscope of TTC/NTNT I realized that I often experience nausea, bloating, headaches right after ovulating. Truth be told, these symptoms STILL give me false hope from time to time, but I know in the back of my mind that they’re all normal for me.

Thanks for all the good advice – helps me to not read so much into it just yet 🙂 Oh, and this isn’t my first month off and I’m charting so since my temps spiked too days ago I think getting back in bed won’t do much help at this point. But I might have to with a heating pad!! 😉

Yeah I would say the cramping IS ovulation. Maybe it’s slightly later than what you thought.

So is it possible that your temps are wrong? I guess I had thought that your temps were the most accurate way of knowing when you O.
