Welcome to all the new mamas, baby dust to all!

AFM - I'm 11DPO and had a BFN this morning. Boo! I'm not feeling pg at all though. For those of you with two or more kids, how did your early pregnancy symptoms compare? Should I expect to have the same/similar symptoms as I did with ds? Because I am feeling nada.

I had 2 pregnancies and thought the second would totally compare to the first - they were so unlike each other! Granted, I was only pregnant for a very short time with the second, but the early symptoms were VERY different. With DD, I would not have even known I was pregnant if I had not been charting and just sort of "knew", with the angel baby, I didn't know I was pregnant, but had all sorts of symptoms (bleeding gums, SO tired, nauseous (didn't start until 5.5 weeks with DD) tender nips, it was so "typical" pregnancy symptoms.

So take from that what you will!

No. I haven't tested. I don't even have any tests in my house. The last one I had left ($ Tree) was one I took to find out I was preg w/my DD last year. I'm relatively certain that I'm not pregnant even though we weren't preventing but not quite TTC yet either. I never noticed EWCM or anything, and I have a feeling my cycles just aren't back yet since most people's aren't for awhile when nursing. I think I will wait a little longer to see if AF shows up or if I get any more "symptoms". I had some slight cramping today & irritability, so prob on her way. Who knows, though?

thanks little grey mare! fingers crossed for a successful 2ww for you! i only had one test in the house and the $t is so far away.. that's how i made it to dpo13 hahaha.

YYYM, am anxious to hear about your blood quant!

mm -- BOO BFN! so this is pregnancy #3 for me. the first (m/c) i had implantation spotting, exhaustion, SORE boobs, super dark positive line. DS, implantation spotting, NO symptoms until 6 wks or so, and even then, not tired, barely sore boobs, super faint positive. this one, some waking up to pee in the middle of the night, EXHAUSTED (but started today, really, dpo 15), and slightly sore boobs (also started today), medium positive line.

so all three early symptoms were different *shrug* these babies are so weird.

MP -- what is going on with you?? AF yet??

Well that's enough to make me hold out a little hope Thanks for sharing!


YYYM - when do you get your test results back?
post #346 of 502
Sooo....is it too early for symptoms 3DPO!!! LOL!!!

I'm SO crabby....and felt like crying a few times today. Very strange for me. Normally I get crabby a few days before AF....but she is not due til around the 31/1st.

Aslo...still feeling super "full" in the uterine area. Can't shake it either. Not very gassy..sorry for TMI..hahaha...but just really full. I've even been feeling these stretchy things on the right side of my uterus. I remember the stretchy pully things with DD 2 years ago..and it's not QUITE like that but it's noticiable.

Very strange

Anyone just feel like they "knew" they were pregnant? If I'm not I'll be super shocked..because feeling waves of hormones and the feeling of fullness just says "pregnant" to me. We'll see I guess!?

I've had two pregnancies. With the first, I wasn't charting and had super irregular cycles, but I just knew it was time to test - so I must have felt different somehow? I ended up m/c. I knew I was pregnant for about a week, but no idea if it was 4-6 weeks.

Then with DS, I had a twitch around 6-7 DPO that I KNOW was implantation. Then that weekend I wanted a bacon hamburger SO BAD, and I hadn't eaten meat in 4 years! So when AF was 2 days late and I finally tested, it wasn't much of a surprise.

I felt like the two were different, maybe some similarities, but the second one was stronger symptoms. BUT my friends all have different ones.

Well, I was woken up several times last night with cramps, and my temp plummeted this morning below cover line. Looks like I am out of the running this month.

Now I must rush around and clean the house/myself/ds, make a pasta/veggie salad of some kind, and get ready for 20 people to descend on us at 10:00a.m.
post #349 of 502
nevermind....

(I took an IC that was positive, but I think something was up, so I"m changing my post until I get a real bfp)
post #350 of 502
CONGRATULATIONS XEKO!!!!! SO exciting!!!

AFM - can you move me into Waiting to Know? I think I finally Oed! Cervix is high firm and closed up, and temps are starting to go up... I temp vaginally so they aren't drastically going up, but they are!
post #351 of 502
I think maybe that test was weird.. I'm totally confused b/c I decided to use a better test with same FMU, and it's completely negative..

I know that sounds lame and that's not usually how it works but it's really early for an IC to be right anyway....
post #352 of 502
bfn and bfp? I charted with my first pregnancy so I've been able to follow most of the conversation here, but these have me stumped. Basal something something..... Help please!

BFN/BFP = big fat positive/negative
BBT = Basal body thermometer or temperature - your resting temp, right when you wake up, or the thermometer that measures it (has the extra digit)
post #354 of 502
Xeko - can you post pics of the IC? I'll edit it and see if it has color.
post #355 of 502
Thanks! The "big fat" had me searching! Thought the "b" was for "basal".

I always think of them as "bona fide" + or -. I just can't get that out of my head!
post #357 of 502
kalamos - I wish I could. Lost the camera cable and DH has been taking the pics off at work for us. Now that it's dry, its got streaks going across and the line is far lighter than what I thought I saw pop up right away. It probably just got me excited for nothing.

hennypenny - ah I see. I think I went the other way when I heard it and thought it was an obscenity for a long time
post #358 of 502
Xeko, just the fact that there IS a line is pretty promising. Sometiime those ICs are REALLY sensitive, and with as early as you are, it makes sense that it might show up on one and not the other... *finger crossed* mama!
post #359 of 502
Still waiting to O. Hopefully sometime this week or so!
