Rheagan:  A mama can better answer this, but very similar thing happened to me a few months back- convinced myself I had to be.  I was literally pukey central, could smell EVERYTHING and got a lot of random headaches for like a week.   Then I got my period like 10 days late.  I’m guessing it was just severe pms.  It’s also easy to convince yourself of symptoms when you’re on a constant lookout. A couple of my friends had similar experiences as well.  I’m  not saying that’s the case for you, but when you are so caught up in it, things can seem more real than they are.  Everyone I know who went thru this got pregnant once they stopped reading into every detail.  It’s as if your body knows you’re trying too hard or something.  I totally get that anxiety of wanting to know, but do try to keep busy, and occupy yourself with something that will keep your stress levels low.  I wish you the best of luck!

In my opinion it is too early and you’re probably just seeing it because you’re looking for it.  Also, progesterone can cause similar symptoms to pregnancy.  That is why pregnancy symptoms and AF symptoms are one in the same.

You see what you want to see.

Implantation doesn’t even usually happen until 7-10 DPO.  So you can’t even be pregnant before then.  Before then it’s just a ball of cells floating along and your body has no idea.  You need it to implant to be pregnant.  And then after that implantation it takes 2-3 days for enough hcg to get into your system for a + pregnancy test and probably the beginning of symptoms.

First, I want to say that I hope that these are all signs of good things for you and that you get your BFP this cycle.

However, I think the mind is a powerful thing.  I believe your brain can totally convince your body that it’s pregnant even if you aren’t.  I know this happened to me the first few cycles, and especially on the cycle where we had great BD timing.  I was so hopeful and just KNEW it had to have worked.  I was nauseated, dizzy, had sore boobs, extra tired, extra hungry, weird “full” feeling in my lower abdomen, etc.  All the things that you’re told you should feel if you’re pregnant.  But most or all of those things can also be signs of AF approaching.  The funny thing is that before TTC, I know all those things happened before AF but I just wasn’t so tuned into them since they had no meaning then.  You can drive yourself crazy trying to analyze the symptoms, but try not to.  Try to find something else to focus on so that the anxiety doesn’t make you lose your mind.  And try not to test until you’ve actually missed your period.  The negatives from testing early are enough to make a girl go crazy!

Good luck!

AgileK9s:  Same story with me last month: nausea, fullness, etc. BFN, then AF came right on time.

I came up with a mantra to help with symptom spotting: “For the next two weeks, I have Schrodinger’s Uterus. I am both pregnant and not pregnant.”

It helps a little. Staying busy helps more.

Last cycle was my first cycle TTC, and I was super nauseated around 5-7 DPO. I also had a temp dip, so I’m pretty sure it was the result of a secondary estrogen surge after O. BFN, I’m onto my next cycle, so curious to see if it happens again!

Rheagan:  It could totally go either way. With both my positive pregnancy tests, my first symptom was super dark veins in my chest, then got BFP on 9DPO (FRER) with both. Yet some people don’t get positives til 15DPO or later. You won’t know til you test!! Fingers crossed for you. You must update if you get a BFP!
