It’s too early to have symptoms.  I’ve always heard that if it’s too early to test, then your levels are also too low to have symptoms.  Sorry!!  Symptom spotting is so real.  Good Luck!

I think I started having symptoms about a week after my missed period. I didnt have any symptoms that were different than my normal PMS symptoms. 

I had sore breasts before, maybe starting at 9 or 10 dpo but it didnt feel out of the ordinary. 

I got a bfp at 10 dpo. Dh and I were talking baby names and on a whim thought I’d test and it was positive!

If you dont have a bfp then the symptoms aren’t pregnancy related. Symptoms happen when hsg is high, but if it’s not high enough to register on a test it’s not high enough for symptoms.

I found out I was pregnant 11dpo. But prior to that I had heartburn (which I never had and ended up having severely through my entire pregnancy), some weird weird dreams (I dreamt I was being chased by a sloth) and I had an urge to try new foods. 

The food and dreams could be coincidence but the heartburn for sure was pregnancy related.

I think my symptoms began around 11-12dpo.  However, I didn’t even suspect I was pregnant until 13dpo when my bbt was still high (it was NEVER high into 13dpo).  Even then, I still refused to test.  But I went to work today, and realized that my boobs were very sore in a different way than PMS, and I realized I was starving… but not just that day, that I had been more hungry all week (so the two days before then).  I took a test after I got home from work that day, and sure enough.

Symptom spotting is truly torturous.  It took us 9 cycles to finally get our BFP – 9 cycles of temping and OPKs – and I swear I had every “symptom” possible… but every symptom could also be the symptom of PMS.  I recommend trying everything you can to not think about it.  There was a lady on here when I was TTC back in 2017 that would literally give herself something to do all day every day during her TWWs to keep her mind off of it!

Good luck, Bee!  Baby dust to you!

hunting_bride :  your breasts become sore because of the shift in hormones as progesterone increases in your body. My breasts were sore right after O the month we got pregnant with my DS but i knew it was unrelated since it was too early for implantation. 

Take a deep breath, it’s almost time to POAS. Lots of luck!

Sore boobs are caused by the rise in progesterone after ovulating. Don’t symptom spot. You will drive yourself crazy!

This is my second pregnancy and both times I’ve gotten a BFP at around 10-12 days DPO (we weren’t actively TTC so I’m not positive, but both times I tested a few days before actually missing my period). Both times I didn’t have symptoms, but had an intuitive gut feeling that I needed to test. I have personally never experienced symptoms like nausea before around week 8. Good luck!

I hope this doesn’t come off as being a downer but I just wanted to share my experience because this really messed with me on my first few cycles of TTC: on my first cycle, at exactly 7 DPO I noticed my boobs were sooo sore. I couldn’t not have a bra on or they would hurt so badly. I had never felt that before so I was pretty convinced I would end up with a BFP. However, 6 months later, no BFP and EVERY cycle I am now hyper aware of how sore my boobs get every month from about 7-11 DPO. It clearly must just be a typical PMS symptom for me but it is REALLY baffling to me that I could have gone for so long without noticing the soreness each month. I think you just become so aware of what’s going on with your body when TTC. That said, if you do end up with a BFP many say the soreness will continue so if you get to the point of expected AF and still have very sore boobs (mine usually disappears the day or two before its due) then that could definitely be a symptom. I hope it does end up being a good sign and you get your BFP!

I would get sore boobs every other cycle when TTC. The cycle I got my BFP I had no symptoms. I didn’t have any of the regular pregnancy symptoms until the morning sickness showed up at 5 weeks. Good luck on your TTC  journey and try not to symptom spot. It will drive you crazy!

It was really hard for me to figure out whether my symptoms were pregnancy or just PMS symptoms at first since sore boobs can be a sign of both! So try to be patient and not read into everything- although that was the HARDEST for me when TTC. I was pretty devastated when the cycle before the cycle we eventually succeeded turned out to have not worked since I kept reading into symptoms and thought this month was going to be OUR month. I didn’t really notice any differences in symptoms the cycle I actually got pregnant, after 5 cycles TTC. 

I do hope it works for you this cycle though! The waiting is the hardest since there’s nothing you can really DO at that point. Try to be gentle with yourself and your body (and plan a special treat for the first day of your period, if it happens! I always took myself to get sushi and drank a couple of cocktails.).

I had super bad nausea around 8-10 DPO. Got my positive on 10 DPO. Nausea is never a PMS symptom for me, so I had a feeling I might be pregnant. 

That said, I had weird symptoms the cycle previous and it was definitely just symptom spotting lol.

hunting_bride :  The POAS boards are definitely your friends with symptom spotting.  I posted all of my symptoms on there, but you quickly realize while you’re posting, all you’re doing is being very hopeful that this cycle is different. But that’s what the POAS boards are for <3 A lot of hope, and support if it’s not.

hunting_bride :  Yes the bee is always here for you on this! It was always easier to talk to the POAS board than my husband since I didn’t want to make him get his hopes up and then get all disappointed if it didn’t work. Nobody else knew we were TTC either.
