Well, everyone has a surge of progesterone after ovulation, whether or not they are pregnant. Progesterone is responsible for most of those PMS/early pregnancy symptoms like sore boobs, fatigue, nausea and acne. If a fertilized egg doesn’t implant, progesterone levels drop and your period arrives. If one does implant, your progesterone stays high, your sore boobs/nausea/fatigue continues and you don’t get your period.

Progesterone and estrogen are primarily responsible (mostly progesterone) for all of these symptoms and you have progesterone surges in the two weeks after ovulation regardless of whether or not you get pregnant. Women say “I’ve never had this, that or this” symptom before, so I MUST be pregnant, then are sorely disappointed when they get a BFN. The reality is, every cycle is different and over the years our bodies go through changes which can cause these symptoms to start appearing in the two week wait when they never did before. Also, when you are not trying, you are not paying any attention to these changes throughout your cycle. In addition to that, if you were on birth control prior to TTC, your body is absolutely going to react differently in the two week wait after stopping it. In all the months that I thought I was pregnant based on symptoms, I wasn’t. The months I had NO symptoms in the two weeks prior to AF were the ones I got a BFP.

I honestly had every sympton in the book every single month I had a BFN. The month we got a BFP I had NOTHING at all, just decided to test at 14DPO for fun… surprise!
