This is the first month we are TTC. I am not temping but I am tracking in my own way. I believe my fertile window was 10/30-11/2. On 11/3 I felt naseous all day but I wrote it off as being tired since we got back from our honeymoon 2 days before. I’ve also started having a kind of cramping, kind of gassy, pushing on my stomach feeling that isn’t going away. Then I feel hunger pains so I eat something and it doesn’t help either.
Is this normal? I didn’t have post ovulation pains in previous months.
Maybe it is completely unrelated to anything and just coincidental that these pains started right after.
I know it takes a week or so after ovulation for everything to happen. I hope I don’t have these pains every month. It has been an uncomfortable few days.

@ajillity81: What did you do for your honeymoon? Perhaps you are feeling side effects from food or just the length of time you wree gone for your honeymoon OR it could still be ovulation pain. Even if you didn’t get it before, your body might have other plans. I guess I am not totally sure, but these are my guesses.

I am not really sure cuz I’m on my first cycle of ttc too but I’ve had this weird ache in my uterus a couple of days after I ovulated and right up until yesterday (10 dpo). i never had any other symptoms besides that but this morning I felt sort of light headed dizzy and nausous every time I moved to fast. Hopefully were both feeling implantation!! Good luck and baby dust to you!!

I was super nauseous during the whole TWW! And I got my BFP first cycle.

Well I dreamed I got my period last night then woke up this morning with the worse cramps yet. Who knows what is going on. I’m not expecting my period until the 14th so I still have 8 days to wait.
@megz06: we toured Italy for 11 days, the food I ate was a little more rich than I am used to but nothing out of the ordinary. Prego is Your Welcome in Italian and both of us chuckled everytime we heard it.
@missstarling: FX and baby dust for you too.
@Peffy: Thanks, I’ve been tracking every thing in my log so I will know for next time.

@ajillity81: I think we’re TTC twins! It’s our first cycle trying and we’re in the same fertile window with crazy early symptoms. I’ve had a crampy/pressure feeling in my abdomen consistently since about 2DPO, along with a heightened sense of smell. No nausea yet, though. When is your POAS date – I assume next week sometime? I’m trying to hold out until at least Sunday (8-9DPO).

@ajillity81: Well one doesn’t have symptoms 1 day afterwards so it’s either honeymoon related or just wishful thinking. I wish we could tell that soon after, but that’s just not possible. Even in IVF where the embroyo has a jump start of 3-6 days and could already be hatching you can’t experience any type of symptom that early. I hope this cycle is it for you, best of luck! 🙂

@ajillity81: Same here! Here’s hoping the next 8 days go by quickly for us.

@ajillity81: This is our first month ttc, and this is the first time I got intense cramps on ovulation day. Ever since I’ve felt cramps, and off. I’m only 2DPO, so obviously it’s all in my head even though I’m really feeling these things. I’ve never had cramps even when I get AF. I have an easy peasy 3 day AF, no cramps, nothing. Now, in the middle of the month on ovulation day (I used an opk) and we were BD’ing before ovulation day, I feel these things. My fingers are definitely crossed. I read on another message board a lot of women claiming they knew they were pregnant at the time of conception, and that it wasn’t just pergesterone! Now implantation doesn’t start until at the earliest 6DPO according to science, but who am I to tell them what is and isn’t possible in their own bodies? Who knows, but good luck!
