We’ve been trying since Sept/Oct. I used OPKs but never once saw a positive (checked with doc, she says I’m ovulating). Then I got a period diary app for my phone and after I plugged in all my history it said I’d ovulate on the 9th (all the websites I’ve been using say it’d be the 15th). This was also my 30th birthday weekend so we BD’d 4 days in a row 🙂
Anyways, on the 16th I got an ocular migraine–weird visuals followed by a bad headache. I saw a retinal specialist the next day and thats what they called it. I googled (of course) and saw how they’re caused by a surge in hormones and this is very common during pregnancy. JAW. HITS. FLOOR.
On the 18th I had some light spotting, I noticed it after sex. Then I had light cramping for a few days. I’ve been reading about implantation symptoms but until this month I haven’t experienced any of them.
Also worth noting: boobs feel ‘different’ and sometimes feel sore (its not 24/7) and smells have seemed kinda strong (but again, its not happening 24/7).
I’ve had “made-up” symptoms for the past few months but obviously it was all in my head. I haven’t spelled out any of the above to my Darling Husband because he’ll just make fun of me. 🙂 But what would you guys think if you experienced all of this? Its also the first month I religiously took my prentals!
Help me through the next few days!! A few BFNs with these crappy lab strip tests so I bought FRER today and waiting until tomorrow…but I’m not due for AF until Friday.

It’s so hard not to symptom spot, isn’t it!
Those all sound like possible signs, so throwing some baby dust your way 🙂

Not sure, but lets us know how it turns out. Hoping for a BFP for you!! 🙂

I feel clinically insane…negative after negative. I range from 29-31 days so all the calculators put me at 30 days (Friday). Shouldn’t I have a faint line by now? Used FRER this morning… 🙁
Perfect day for a BFN though…dark, cold and rainy…

@mudrat2: Hugs. it’s soooo hard seeing those tests not give you a second line. I read somewhere that sometimes it takes a little longer for some women to get that “positive” on HPTs. My bestie was weeks and weeks before she got a positive on her home tests. hope this is the case for you! i am trying so hard not to symptom spot myself. sigh.

thanks. i do this to myself every month but this month is definitely the worst (because i saw the spotting).
a few more days and hopefully i’ll know one way or the other. it was probably a bad idea to buy a onesie, its how i want to tell my Darling Husband. maybe i jinxed myself?

I don’t want to get your hopes up, but I actually did get an occular migraine during my TWW in the same month that I got my BFP. I have had them before though, so I have no idea if it was related to the pregnancy. I have had a couple of occular migraines during my pregnancy as well. I’ve never asked my doctor about them, but I probably should b/c they freak me out. Good luck!!

I had a migraine once during my TWW, but no BFP. Hoping that you don’t have the same result!
