^hello^

I thought it would be good for girls like me on the 2ww who are reading into every little symptom!

Started as I'm experiencing something new, I'm sat on a chair and I feel as though I'm spinning and about to tip off! ^scared^

Could be a good sign, low blood presure. Blood presure drops in first 3 mths of pregnacy, Light headed and dizziness is a sympton.of low BP

Okay,

I've had two 2WW so far and am now on my third.

On my first, positive one I had lots of twinges/af pains all through but ALSO had giddiness, extra hunger and extra sharp sense of smell which gave me clues I was pg, but these signs only appeared in the 2nd week.  I got a faint positive from day 12.

On my second, negative one I was sure it hadn't worked from the start.  I got bad af pains from about day 8 and started to bleed on day 12.

I'm now on my third 2WW and am on day 6.  Have been feeling starving (which I also always do pre af) and did have some af pains earlier today. 

It is very very hard as lots of very early pg signs are the same as af signs.
If I feel dizzy/sharp smell though, I'll be getting excited.  Here's hoping.  I don't want to go through this again....

love to all,
IMogen.x.

ps if you bleed DON'T give up! I had a number of bleeds during the first 12 weeks with my ds.

I had a BFP last year [miscarried at 4 mths], and kept a diary but I now notice that I get all those symptoms almost every cycle anyway. The one thing that stood out for me in the 2WW that I got BFP was that I did NOT get any sort of headache. Most 2WWs I get maybe one day of eye ache or head ache.

Im sitting here with a headache on day 13 passed OV and feeling very very low as Ive had all the nausea, boobs, dizziness, itchy skin..... and just got a BFN. I will test again tmrw but wiht this headache not looking good.

Good luck.

Hi,

I've had 2 2ww's - 1st one bfn & second bfp. My symptons were the same both times - period type pains, spotting & bloating. I was therefore convinced 2nd cycle hadn't worked. Only difference was the cycle that worked i had nightsweats about 10 days after the transfer.
Good luck
love
Lou

Did anyone who got a BFP have a dry mouth some time in the 2 week wait. Im 6 days past ovulation and suddenly go it quite badly. id be thrilled if its a good sign but doubt it! 8 days to go before testing.

I only had et 2 days ago but have been getting bad af type pains in my stomach and back.  I had been really worrying about it but my mind is sort of at rest now.

Thanks Flowerpot - yes the dry mouth thing has really stood out and I still have it. I read its the start of morning sickness.  Please please let this one go full term.  This is worse than the 2WW for me. I couldn't bare loosing another one.

All the best
Sheena

Hi,

I had 2 5 day old embies put back then had twinges day 3ish and then a dull ache in the morning of the next day, this must of been implantation sypmtom's if we feel them!  ::) then I had nothing for the rest of the time apart from tiredness and a strong sense of smell at the end, and a funny feeling in the back of my throat! which wasn't on the options!  :) I also had a creamy discharge after I tested from day 10/11.  And now I'm totally shattered and deffinately feel pregnant already, and I'm only 4 wks and 5 days!  :)

Good idea for a poll!  ;)

Hello all,
Just got my BFP so thought I'd add my symptoms to the poll.  Just wondered if 'painful boobs' could be added.  That was more noticeable than them being huge, though they did grow a bit  ;D ;D

Good luck to all you still waiting.  And chiefly my advice would be: don't interpret symptoms of AF pains as anything bad, cos I had them most of the time!

Hi I've not voted as I had no symptoms at all. Normally with the Clomid cycles I had what could be classed as pg symptoms, but this last one had none so guess I should have known that was different from the norm. I suppose the lack of symptoms in itself could have been a symptom.

HI Rosie,
Just thought I'd let you know you can vote for 'no symptoms' on the list.  It would probably reassure all those other lucky people out there with no symptoms that this is also normal and doesn't mean they aren't pg.

Hope all's going well with you & your story...

Clarey

ps who is in charge of adding symptoms?  I still think painful boobs should be added!!!
