I just have a short and simple question for your pregnant Bees. Okay, I know that most people talk about how they felt extra… ehm… wet down there before they found out they were KU. However, I’ve also heard of women who went dry as the desert and that’s how THEY were clued in.
So here’s my question…wet or dry? What gave you the clue? The reason I’m asking is because last night Darling Husband and I tried to BD and it just wouldn’t…uh…get to where it needed to be. I have NEVER, EVER had that problem before. Never. Even when I wasn’t all-the-way-in-the-mood, it still lubed (GAWD, I FEEL SO Too Much Information SAYING THESE THINGS) up exactly like it should have.
(I’m 9dpo and have some weird twinges, but as always, it could all be in my head — also, I don’t ever get “dry.” Even before and after AF, there’s always a little something.)

@Peffy: i was exactly the same as ive always been (lets say “medium” :P)/
not extra wet, not extra dry, no weird symptoms at all. in fact even after my BFP the other day..,i sitll dont feel pregnant particularly. th eonly way to know is to pee on that stick! last month i was convinced i was pregnant, 10 days late (which never ever happens) , super tired, cramping, sore boobs etc…and nothing. aunt flo came as normal eventually.
this month really didnt think i was -and i am. i think its easy to spend time analysing symptoms and second geussing yourself

@newname_99: +1. I really had no symptoms until after the positive pregnancy test.

@newname_99: I totally agree. I actually haven’t been thinking too much about it. Some of my symptoms are kind of weird, but I chalked it up to PMS. But last night was REALLY weird and hard to ignore because it just really NEVER happens. Even when I was on the BCP (which some people say causes that. Oh, and congratulations!

I had a lot of watery CM in my luteal phase both times before my bfp (which isn’t normal for me).

On the months I wasn’t pregnant: I had weird things happen that “dont usually happen” during my cycle or just a lot of pregnancy symptoms, so I thought, OMG I MUST BE PREGNANT! Nope.
Cycle I actually was pregnant: I had zero symptoms, in fact, it was like a milder PMS so I thought AF was coming FOR SURE.
Your cycle really can be different every month, even if you’re not pregnant. I think when people say they had “early pregnancy symptoms before their period” it’s a bit of a recall bias, but really all that early pregnancy symptoms are are progesterone-induced symptoms that can be in normal PMS, too. Even nausea and yes, vaginal dryness = progesterone which could mean your pregnant or it could just mean you had an extra powerful corpus luteum this month that is producing a little more progesterone than normal.

I had my normal CM but early on like 4dpo and then 9dpo I had 1 glob in my panties (sorry that’s so gross) it was tinged sort of yellow. After my bfp I got “wetter” for awhile, and all my cm was yellowish. I also had twinges. To me they felt different than anything else I’ve had. I would describe it as someone tying a string to my belly button area and tugging it from inside my body.

@MrsRugbee: You have no idea how good your chart made me feel. I was panicky over my temps being around the same pre-o and post-o, but your chart looks rather similar to my own! <a href=”http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/448620″>My Chartt</a> Even if I’m not KU this cycle, your chart made me feel so much more at ease 🙂
@cowgirlace: I was TERRIBLE for that last month. This month, that’s really the only “weird” thing that happened to me. Otherwise, most of the way I’m feeling is typcial for the week before AF. I’m still hoping for her not to show her face and for me to get a BFP, though!
@Mrs.Maeby: Bahahah, isn’t EVERYTHING about our bodies gross?! And everything seems to be back to normal for me. I’m still hoping this is our month, though!
@abbylyn: Sore boobs will probably never get my attention. They’re ALWAYS sore leading up to AF, so even though they’re sore right now, it could very well be because the evil one is only a few days away.
@MsSparklyBee: Thanks 🙂

You never know until you take a test, everyone is different! Take a test and if it’s negative you might also want to check for yeast infection and other things like that that can affect that type of thing!

@Peffy: Keep in mind my pre O temps were high that cycle because of my miscarriage. It starts to drop 3DPO after I passed the ‘products of conception. If you look at the chart below, my pre-O temps are usually consistently low.
