I will admit I was very ‘out of synch’ with my body when I got pregnant. While Darling Husband and I HAD been TTC, we were NTNP that month (and the month prior) due to a combination of me starting a new job, and us sorting out some marital issues. I really started noticing symptoms at five weeks along (I found out I was pregnant at 5 1/2 weeks). I THINK I may of had an inkling at three weeks…but I was so stressed and all over place I barely noticed my period was late. I remember feeling really crampy, annoyed and general achy. The breats tenderness has pretty much skipped me, but I’m told that I’m lucky! The morning sickness kicked in full force around 7ish weeks.

thefuturemrsD :  Nope. If you fertilized an egg this month it hasn’t implanted yet and the implantation is what kick starts the hormones that cause symptoms. I SWORE up and down a dozen different times that I felt different and then my period would show up. When I finally did get pregnant (via IVF) I didn’t have any real symptoms until week 5.

thefuturemrsD :  it’s super hard not to symptom spot so I get it! but 2dpo is just way to early so it’s not worth making yourself crazy for the new two weeks. The only indicator I had before my BFP was a breakout on my chest/back which I NEVER get but it was only a few days before I took my test and I’m still not 100% sure it wasn’t due to the fertility treatments.

thefuturemrsD :  I’m right there with you at 4dpo!  Our first cycle TTC I thought every twinge, nausea feeling (even though I experience nausea daily in the mornings), bloating, etc.

Oops I posted before I finished!

I do wonder though: if there is a fertilized egg floating around if there’s enough change in some women’s bodies for them to tell? 

That being said, I feel nothing this cycles yet.

thefuturemrsD :  The absolute earliest is 7 days post ovulation, after a fertilized egg implants in your uterine lining, so either you ovulated and conceived earlier than you think or your mind’s playing evil tricks on you!!!

I didn’t feel any symptoms (which was only sore boobs) until 11DPO, and even then I thought it was just me PMSing – I did end up getting my BFP on 12DPO, but then after it was really only sore boobs and fatigue until I was about 6 weeks pregnant

You really can’t feel symptoms until you have a fair amount of HCG in your system – usually around 6 weeks. For me, I didn’t feel much until the nausea kicked in at 8 weeks. I hate to be a party pooper, but at 2dpo you wouldn’t be a) pregnant or b) feeling pregnancy symptoms. Hopefully in a few weeks though!! Good luck!

I always feel my first symptom at 7 DPO.  My boobs start getting sore then.  I would say 2 DPO is way too early. It is so hard not to symptom spot, but you aren’t that far away!

With my first I had symptoms at implantation, which I attributed to PMS lol.  She was a surprise baby, we were not trying to get pregnant.   My second baby we WERE trying for, and I first felt synptoms about 10 days after conceiving.  I had sore, puffy boobs, a little bit of a back and stomachache, and just a general feeling of something going on.  I know this is scientifically “not possible”, but whether it be due to hormones or just intuition, I do think it’s possible to sense pregnancy earlier than implantation.  Some people are super in touch with their bodies or what not.  With my first (the surprise baby) I sensed something though I had no idea what it was pretty immediately .

2 DPO is just too early.  Remember that a lot of early pregnancy symptoms can mirror symtoms around ovulation time as well, just because of similar hormones.  You might just be a bit more in tune with your body now that you’re actively TTC, but try not to symptom spot (even though it’s hard!)

I didn’t have a ton of symptoms leading up to my BFP, but when I look back I can see a few random things occuring after about 7 DPO- a teeny bit of spotting, some fatigue, being extra hungry at random times, and being headachey.  My real symptoms didn’t really start until 5 weeks.

I was temping and knew when I ovulated; tested at 9dpo and got the faintest BFP ever. Real BFP came about 11dpo. I started feeling mildly nauseous at 4 weeks exactly (so, 14dpo) and it didn’t let up until 15 weeks.  Good luck with your TWW!

I honestly didn’t have any symptoms until way after my BFP.  In fact I told several bees I knew we were out because even my CM dried up temporarily.  I didn’t really start feeling symptoms until 5 weeks and then it was only sore boobs and some heartburn.  The MS didn’t start until 7 weeks.  Now I’m 8 weeks and the MS and heartburn are in full force.
