Should I be feeling this?

I had another post but I've been the last 3 posts on it, lol. So anyway, let me bring you up to speed so you don't have to go searching for information. I believe I ovulated on 9/3-4. So I am about 5-6 dpo. I have been feeling very mild cramping and twinges around my uterus and ovary area. They don't hurt at all. Yesterday I was regular with going to the bathroom, then last night I had to go and couldn't. I'm constipated. I have not changed my diet so I'm not sure what's going on there. I have been gassy for 2 & 1/2 days. I have mood swings that are making me feel mean, not sure where those are coming from either. I know these are not in my head, but it's too early to be feeling all of this, or is it? We are ttc in month 3 now.

Strange!  I am having the same symptoms as you and I am 10 days past my first IUI treatment.  Gassy...constipated, VERY TIRED, moody, etc.  Maybe we're BOTH pregnant.  I don't know.  I hope mine are not symptoms of PMS....but I suppose it could be.  I will keep my fingers crossed for BOTH of us!

I've been feeling the same things and my nipples tingle too.  I have also been trying for 3 months and I'm 6 DPO.  I'm crossing my fingers and my legs LOL!  :)

Hormonal changes cause these reactions in our bodies so it could be pre-menstrual or it could be pregnancy. I'd test in a bout a week to see what's going on! ;-) Good luck!!!

Im feeling the same exact thing. Im also very bloated..... like even if i try to "suck it all in" i cant.....  its a little painful.... Hopefully we are pregnant. These bloating symptoms started a few days ago.... And AF isnt due til the 12th.... I guess it might be an early period??!! i dont know... i sure hope not!

Just play around with it & it should give you an idea when to take a pregnancy test.
Mine says around the 12 of this month. Basically, I wasted all the money on taking those 3 tests (which were negative).
Also, it tells you what you should be feeling.

Hi Ladies!
I just came across this thread and was happy to find others going through the same thing as me. I'm currently 11 dpo and have been feeling PMS like symptoms since about 7 dpo. Over the course of the last 4-5 days I have had lower abdominal twinges and cramps, lower back pain, headaches, constipated, tender breasts (especially on the outer edges to my armpits and across the top), very sensitive nips, nausea that comes and goes, etc. I experience some of these things right before AF, but they don't start until a couple days before. I took a HPT yesterday and today w/ FMU and both were BFN. So, I don't know what's going on. I'm not due to start until 9/14. It's just weird to have all of this stuff happen so early.

Sometimes your body will tell you you might be pregnant before any test can.... Since your period isnt due til the 14th i suggest you wait another 2 or 3 days to test again... That might catch the pregnancy but some pregnancies dont get a positive til due day of AF.

Thank you for the advise. It's nice just to have people to share my "crazy talk" with! LOL!
I have two other children and had no symptoms prior to missing my period with my son and the only symptom I had with my daughter was the nagging feeling that I was pregnant. With her, I took a HPT 3 days before my period was due and got a neg. On the day I should have started is when I got my BFP. You're absolutely right, I just need to chill out and wait a few more days.

lol.... im not telling you to chill out.... hahhaa your too funny! ..... Sometimes our instincts tell us differently then the tests do....  Hopefully both of us get nice FAT positives!!!

I'm bloated too... I tried sucking it in and I can't LOL.
It feels like I just ate and tried to do that!  Ha. Well my breasts haven't had anything going on. Course I haven't exactly been focused on symptoms until I noticed what I have right now. I am due for AF around the 17th I believe.

I felt awful earlier. I don't know what was wrong with me. I had a stomach ache that made me actually cry, glad it's over.......... Anyways, I'm still so bloated. Ugh, I look like I gained at least 5 pounds.. lol... I have a low grade temp I think. My eyelids are really warm when I close them.... I'm tired but haven't done anything to be tired lol

I just realized I can start testing toward the end of next week!!! I've never been more excited to pee!!! Haha and if this month doesn't work for us... I'll welcome ttc month #4. :)
I haven't been cramping much anymore. Or have the mild twinges. Those seem to come and go and are not so noticeable. I've had 2 stomach aches today and my bathroom situation went to semi normal again. Still bloated for the past 2 maybe even 3 days. I bloated around O but that went away and came back.....Now I guess I am just waiting to poas!

Yes, that would be a wonderful birthday present!!! I wish you the best of luck! I sure hope my symptoms mean more than just AF is coming! LOL!
Blank
1440696_tn?1307120809
I hope you feel better today. Waiting to POAS is the hardest! I jumped the gun a little this month and started testing at 10dpo; wishful thinking I guess! If my symptoms persist over the weekend, I'm going to test again Monday morning. AF is due Tuesday. Hope we all get our BFPs this month!!
Blank

Thank you. Hoping we ALL get BFP's!

I'm 11 DPO and this waiting AGAIN is driving me nuts.  I think I might test tomorrow at 12 DPO but I don't want to be disappointed.  I don't know, I just wish I knew.  My boobs still hurt a little which is for me is not a normal PMS thing, but it could also be all in my head.  I want this so bad.  Oh well.

Both times I got pregnant I felt PMS symptoms. I coulda SWORE that my period was comming. But it didn't I was pregnant. I have NO IDEA what the difference is between PMS and pregnanc because for me it felt the same. Honestly I would wait and rely on a good ol preggo test.

I know it's hard to wait on a test. Even for me it took 8 days after my missed period to get a FAINT line show up and even 11 days after my MP the doctor thought the line was faint and sent me for a blood test.

So I wish you guys who are ttc the best of luck. Be patient, even if it's hard. eventually that little line will show up for you!! ~*~ BABY DUST ~*~

So I'm 12 DPO and I took a test.  There might possibly be a faint line, BUT it could be my imagination.  lol  I would take a pic and post but it's so light I really have to look for it.  So I'll test again tomorrow morning, fingers crossed.
Blank
1399033_tn?1395940058
I HOPE when I test tomorrow, I'll have a ++++!
I've added it up and basically I've had mild dull aches/cramps for 6 days! AF is not due until Saturday!
