    Not going to lie…I laugh a little and roll my eyes at all those “symptoms” people new to TTC claim to have when it is clearly WAY too early!

    I fear may be one of ‘those’ women lol but the only ‘symptom’ I had was a really heavy feeling in my uterus the day after ovulation. I’ve not had it before or since and got my bfp at 10dpo. Had no other symptoms at all until much later on.

    Maybe 10-14 DPO.  But I think even that is really pushing it. But I’m going off myself and every pregnant lady I know…none of whom had any symptoms until they were at least 6 weeks.

    Too many of pregnancy symptoms could have been either a BFP or a period coming.  The only big indication for me was that I didn’t experience any of the usual spotting the week before.  I did not “have a feeling”, and that is just an optimistic woman speaking.  She probably says it every month.  My boobs started hurting at 12DPO which was unusual (but I knew I was preggers on day 10).  I am 6 weeks pregnant and still don’t have any symptoms other than tender boobs and cramps every once in a while.

    The problem is that a lot of pregnancy symptoms are also a lot of period symptoms.

    I don’t know how many DPO I was — I was about 32 days late which was not unusual since I was coming off birth control, but my first and only symptom was sore breasts. I’m now 23 weeks pregnant and that’s still pretty much my only symptom, except for peeing exactly ever fraction of a second.

    The rule of thumb I’ve always heard and gone by is if you have enough HGC in your system to experience symptoms you have enough to turn a pregnancy test positive.

    I got pregnant on the first try with my first daughter and “just knew” I was pregnant. I would be on here telling you that it is totally possible if that had been my only pregnancy. However, I am currently pregnant with my second daughter and she took 6 months to concieve. I “just knew” I was pregnant again every single month in that time followed by a huge let down and week of depression once my period started. That being said, I know first hand how hard it is to just relax and not symptom spot. So i will just say good luck!

    Like many others will tell you, I convinced myself many times I was pregnant, except the month I actually was. I had IVF so my egg fertilized in a lab, so couldn’t tell you about any post-fertilization symptoms, but I think most of the time, it’s wishful thinking + being super in tune with your body. I never noticed my early period signs until I was TTC, either. Just goes to show how much we tune out when we aren’t focused on TTC and every little twinge and feeling that *could* be a sign. I do believe some women are just more intuitive with their bodies than I am, but I can also say I 100% had zero symptoms until my hug was well past high enough to be detected on a pregnancy test.

    Idk. Mine was a week after my missed period. I tried to have a glass of wine and couldn’t drink three sips without running to the ladies room to Puke. I didn’t suspect pregnancy bc I was on the pill. Retrospectively… I had a yeast infection (TMI) 7 days DPO And never had one before in my life. OB said it could have been a symptom. But PMS causes a lot of pregnancy like symptoms too

    I also convinced myself I was pregnant. Every month for a year and a half. Then the month I was actually pregnant I thought “oh I’m not pregnant. I know I’m not”  haha. And the kicker is that I had also started clomid that month, so I had a much better chance of being pregnant that month than any other month ever! Lol. I also just knew that I was GOING to start my period. The cramps were the exact same. But, they never went away. Then I took one million pregnancy tests. All positive.  26 weeks now with baby girl.

    9 and 10 dpo I was knocked on my ass with extreme fatigue on my bfp cycle (after many failed cycles with nothing like that.) I didn’t think anything of it until 11 dpo when I got my first positive. Then I had no other symptoms for a couple weeks (except from my progesterone supplements.) Maybe it was coincidence, maybe something to do with implantation.

    I symptom spotted a lot when we were first trying to get pregnant but the month we were successful I had a hunch between 8-11DPO. I actually experienced implantation bleeding at 8 DPO, and that was just what sealed it for me after having uncomfortable cramping earlier in the day. I took my first test 3 days later and it sure was positive.
