Please forgive me, but I just need to ask someone about the two week wait and symptoms. It’s going into 11 dpo and the only thing that my gf has mentioned is feeling tired. She tells me she’s normally tired due to her work but since the day or two after ovulation I noticed that she just seems more withdrawn/distant than before. I’m hoping that we are successful with this and I just need to relax. I know it’s still early, but has anyone not had any symptoms at all and still get a good positive? I’m just worried it didn’t happen. Thank you for your time.

Yes, it’s very normal to not have any symptoms at all early on. I didn’t get any symptoms until I was about 6 weeks along and I’m 36 weeks now :). Good luck!

the most common is for women to have no symptoms or barely any. Being withdrawn might be her stressing over the wait? It sure makes me feel like crap.

As others have said most of the time they are very few or no symtoms early on. I really didnt have any symptoms until after I got a positive test. Did you guys just start trying? I know from experince it is super hard to wait and not stress during the two week wait. Maybe your gf is more withdrawn becuase she is stressed as well? I hope you guys do get a positive this month! But if you dont no need to stress… it’s normal that it can take time. Good luck to you guys!!

We just began trying again this month. She has a nine year old from a previous relationship and years ago we had a miscarriage on our first try. We decided to wait a while after that. She told me minutes ago that she “just doesn’t feel pregnant”. That she’s not had anything feeling different. All last week she spoke of feeling tired and today she told me that she had very vivid dreams last night. I know I’m grasping at anything right now as just the thought of sharing something so amazing with her has made my eyes water on many occasions. I want to experience the things I hear couples speak of. The odd cravings. Seeing the baby bump growing and feeling the kicks. Pampering her every chance I get to let her know she’s as beautiful as ever. Be beside her and supportive of her as much as I can. To see a little one with her eyes and smile would mean more to me than anything.
I’m not really a religious man but I’ve done a fair share of staring up into the skies with an open heart asking for this favor.
I asked her if she’d take a test for me now but she just told me that she’s going to wait to see if she’s late and would take one then. My heart felt so heavy. I respect her choice.
I don’t mean to sound like a ball of mushiness but there’s just a lot of back story that I can’t explain. I’m a professional firefighter and see enough of the dark side of things out there, as so many other professions do. But, I should know something in the days to come. Thank you all for allowing me to open up a little. I’m scared and a bit worried is all.
You guys are amazing. Thank you

You sound like a wonderfully supportive partner. No symptoms are fairly common, as the body cannot even register being pregnant until implantation occurs. But, while certainly not infallible, a woman’s instincts or feelings about it are often accurate. And while this will certainly not make you feel any better, the odds of a fertile couple conceiving in any particular month are about 15% – 25%. So give it some time. I wish you two the very best!

It wasn’t meant to happen this time. Just received the message that nature’s normal monthly gift occurred. Hopefully, she will want to try again. I thank you all for the advice. You are really nice people and I hope nothing but the best for you all.

Kevin, it sounds like you’ve both had a lot of struggle, but please know it’s perfectly normal for it to take up to a year for healthy couples to get pregnant. Please know that 1 in 5 pregnancies end in miscarriage. Please know that being it’s her body, she’s reading into everything a million more times than you are. Let her know you’re there for her, but let her take this at her pace. Try to enjoy her, find ways to let her relax, and continue being supportive. I completely understand her not wanting to take a test early because sometimes a stark white negative is more painful than aunt flow knocking. Patience… Sometimes that’s all you need.

Best of luck for next month! 🙂
