@SimplyChic11:  Is this your first cycle off BC as well? How long was your last cycle? If you are on the 17th day of your cycle, you would have had to ovulate VERY early to explain all your symptoms…. I don’t wanna get your hopes down, but morning sickness often doesn’t start until around the sixth week of gestation (of course it CAN be earlier!), and compounded with things like dizziness, I’d GUESS that your symptoms are psychological at this point.

Of course, you could be totally KU!!! You are taking your temperature, right? What has it been doing? Is it continuously rising?

Ditto to what ChuckNorris said. Are you recently off of BCP? I had the exact symptoms you’re describing last month when it was my first cycle off BCP. I literally had every symptom in the book 🙁 I just would hate for you to get your hopes up like I did. But I hope you get your BFP! It is very possible to get pregnant on your first cycle, as proved on these boards.

@SimplyChic11:  It’s very possible, but you would have needed to O on cycle day like 7-10 to have that many symptoms, and with a 27 day cycle, that’s very rare. Your LP would be 17-20 days! I reeeeeally hope this is it for you, we have had a lot of first-timers get BFPs lately, and you very well could be one of them!!!!!!!! =) Fingers crossed!!!!

@SimplyChic11:  Trust me, I can totally relate!! Try “reverse symptom spotting.” The lovely Hamikay made this up, I dunno, three POAS clubs ago I think? It’s where you think up logical reasons for all your symptoms – magically, they all go away! For me, breast tenderness was from fist pumping (yes, fist pumping) at the Giant’s game. Nausea was something I ate. Repeated nausea was something ELSE I ate… Hunger? I clearly didn’t eat enough yesterday! Bloating? Definitely didn’t drink enough water today. Just think of any reason that could explain it, and chalk it up to that! =)

@SimplyChic11:  yes they stopped, thank god! I thought I was going crazy. I even passed out one day from the dizziness, and I had crazy cramping with sharp pains one day, which I thought was implantation cramping lol. Ive been off BCP for a month and a half now, and feel much better. I hope your symptoms mean you’re pregnant though – you never know! 🙂

these sound like a lot of the symptoms that i’ve had while TTC… but i’ve never been pregnant 🙁 a lot of it was/is psychological for me. I did realise that my prenatals were making me nauseas, and this took me a few months to work out – are you taking something new? i switched to another brand, which made a big difference. or it could be just your body recalibrating after BCP. or, you could in fact be pregnant, but it does seem very early to be experiencing morning sickness, and it would mean a VERY early O day (which are uncommon if you search FF for them). Are you basing your 27/28 day cycle on what used to happen pre-BCP, or during BCP? because quite a few people find that their cycles vary post BCP from what it used to be. Can you show us your chart??

Chuck has already explained my ‘reverse symptom spotting’ (gosh, if i’d known it was going to catch on, i’d have patented it!! haha), and it works for me!

Good luck!!

 

EDIT: the other thing that makes me think this may be psychological/reaction to coming off BCP is that you say you’ve been experiencing symptoms for the past week and a half, and it’s on CD17 now – so since around CD7. even if you DID ovulate early, and get pregnant, it wouldn’t have implanted until at least 5 days after that, and you probably wouldn’t be producing the hormones to create symptoms until after that again… I think it’s still too early to be symptom spotting.

ohhhh, welcome to our special place in TTC hell 🙂

@hamikay:  I was going to say the same thing about prenatals. My one ever pregnancy scare was about 5 years ago when I started taking a vitamin with iron with my breakfast and shortly after would be extremely nauseous. 

Op – have you by any chance just started a new prenatal??
