About a week before AF I got so dizzy I felt drunk at a wedding, despite not drinking at all. I didn’t really think much of it, thought it was my upcoming wedding’s stress. A few days later at work I felt like every 5 minutes I had to pee.
Finally it was Saturday and 13DPO and I had the most VIVID dream I was going to test positive…. And I did!!
Looking back if I was really symptom spotting I could have seen the signs but I was totally oblivious!

I was super bloated and gassy (tooting a LOT haha) and my boobs were bigger. However, those can be normal pms symptoms for me. I also had a sharp twinge/cramp that I thought could be something important…but the most telling thing was cramps, but no period for three nights in a row! I knew something was up and when I tested a day or two after my period was due (I think about 12-14 dpo) the line was SO dark, it was amazing. I told my husband “I knew it!” best of luck to you!!!!!

@octoberbaby: I got my BFP at 10DPO however at 9DPO I was extremely dizzy running into walls and even had to pull over once while driving to get my bearings. The morning of my BFP I woke up to find my breasts were enlarged/fuller. I definitely had my suspicisions but I didn’t want to get my hopes up.

I KNEW I was pregnant. I had spotting on 4 dpo and by 6 dpo my areolas had darkened and I had extremely painful nipples. I knew we had great timing and I felt really good about it. I got a positive at 8 dpo.

I was positive in my head 3DPO (I sat back at dinner and went “I think I’m pregnant!”
Then went back and forth (“I’m definitely pregnant. No way I’m pregnant!”) from 4DPO to 10DPO
10+11DPO I was SURE I was NOT pregnant, and I was crushed.
Then I tested at 12DPO and got my BFP!

I’m trying so hard not to symptom spot now. My FET was yesterday, and I have weird cramping, sore boobs, and I was lightheaded this morning (I’m never lightheaded). Even IF an embryo stuck, I wouldn’t feel anything this early, especially since they were frozen and still in the process of expanding. So I’m really trying to avoid thinking this way and setting myself up for disappointment.

I voted 5-8dpo, but I’m weird and I get signs as early as 1dpo that I ONLY get during pregnancy cycles. I knew on this pregnancy at 1dpo because of those signs. Still took until 13dpo to get the bfp tho! 😛

Just pulled up my old posts after my fresh IVF, which resulted in BFN, and I reported lighheadedness then too. So apparently I’m lightheaded post transfer, with no relation to results 🙁

@dodgercpkl: I’m curious- like what?

the only thing that was odd to me before i tested was that we were on a 9 hour car ride home after thanksgiving (about 9 dpo) and we had stopped and gotten a coffee at some point during the trip. i drank about half the coffee and all of a sudden felt car sick (which never happens). i was convinced though that i wasn’t pregnant and told myself i’d test if my period didn’t come that sunday (i tested on 12 dpo). most of my symptoms were the same as pms for me.

@amandasf: My two biggest signs are that my boobs start hurting and I get cramps. The only times my boobs have ever hurt during a natural cycle (I’ve only done one medicated cycle and it was a bust but my boobs did hurt through that cycle) was during a pregnancy cycle. I have no idea why it happens as early as it does with me, but for the last 5 pregnancies at least, I had sore boobs from 1/2 dpo on. With the cramping, it’s not a normal type of cramping for me. It’s a stretching/full feeling with little twinges here and there and that also tends to happen around 1/2 dpo. I only ever get those types of cramps during a pregnancy cycle. With my last pregnancy, I told my Endocrinologist at 4dpo that I was pregnant. 🙂
I know… I’m weird. lol

I didn’t vote becauseI wasn’t charting and have no idea how to tell you my dpo. But my boobs were unusually sore about a week before I even started my period, and then I headed out to Europe with my mom and wanted to cry over really stupid things and I was like…. I have a feeling I’m pg… Oh yeah and then my pd never came during the trip. I partly chalked it up to travel, but I knew deep down it wasn’t coming.
I think its probably easy to find symptoms when you are waiting though and hoping. We only tried one month and then I just knew things were not like normal.

@dodgercpkl: so cool to be able to tell so early on.. takes the guessing work out lol

I’m very newly pregnant, but I knew something was up pretty early on (I wrote a post about it last week). I never, ever cramp except for the day or two leading up to AF, but I started getting very distinctive pre-AF cramps at around 5dpo. I just felt so off and not myself. It’s so hard to describe. I’ve never been pregnant before, but I was (and am) very in tune with my body after charting for a full year, and I knew that these were new and different and hopefully a good sign.
I got my BFP at 9dpo, so I definitely think those cramps were implantation cramps since I apparently implanted very early.

I had some symptoms that really didn’t add up. I could smell everything to the point that I could tell the chef at work what kind of muffins he was baking (when he was making three different kinds) and I could tell if there was feta cheese anywhere near me, which I normally love, but could suddenly not stand. I was also sleeping like a rock, which is very abnormal for me. this was 9-10dpo. Also at 13 dpo I was offered a drink at work, which normally I would have taken the champagne and orange juice but I declined it without thinking, sure enough I got my BFP the next day.
