April TWW Thread - Page 18post #342 of 5074/23/13 at 12:12pmThread StarterOkay I have a weird question to ask. Has anyone on here ever experienced a period and be pregnant? Cuz as soon as I got my period the next day I started feeling sick I'm not throwing up but I'm just nauseated and feel ugh. Could I just be sick? My af started heavy but it's lightened up some I started on Sunday morningpost #343 of 5074/23/13 at 1:29pmToday is cd 25, 9dpo, 6 days til af. Yesterday, after posting, I got extremely tired. Ive been feeling more tired the last few days, but yesterday was different. I actually went and laid down in bed at 530pm. I also got extremely sick. Vomiting 4-5 times. Vomiting can never be a "definate" sign for me tho. Also, had a headache. Today so far, I got up once earlier, to wash dishes, was light headed upon standing. My face is still broke out. I was extremely aggravated with my boyfriend last night, for no reason, I just didnt feel good. Today, I decided to check my cervix. According to everything a " normal" woman goes through during her cycle, considering im 6 days away from expected af, my cervix should be low, and firm, dry, and ready for menstruation. However, mine is high, semi soft, closed, and a lot of thick cervical mucus. Im also having some mild twinges in my lower right abdomen, and some sharp pains coming and going in my right breast. Nothing steady though. Im feeling discouraged. ..I feel like..if I was actually in the running, I would have more noticeable symptoms. I know everyone is different. I just read all these posts, and all the early symptom, and I feel like im out. What I do remember from my pregnancy with my son,
clear skin, terrible terrible sickness, not just in the morning, but all day, and heartburn. However, I didnt have those things until after pregnancy was confirmed. I know every pregnancy is different, and I want a new baby so bad, I just feel like ive already lost, because im not having a lot of symptoms. I see everyone talking about sore breasts, I actually had sore breasts last month, and it gave me hope, but I never had that before with my other pregnancies. It wasnt until after I had my son, that I got sore breasts, oh yea, and they were HUGE. I didnt get it with the other 2, but they didnt go full term. My first pregnancy didnt give me any symptoms to go on, just a BFP on 6 different hpts, because I was in shock. I just kept testing, until I finally bought a digital...then there was no more questioning it. It was definate. So...what it comes down to, I look at everyone elses symptoms, and compare what im feeling, and pretty much give myself empty hope. I wish all of you ladies the best of luck, I can tell you want that BFP just as bad as I do. Just remember, we are all different, just because one lady has a certain symptom and ends up pregnant, that doesnt necessarily put you out of the running because you dont have it as well. Everyone of you ladies are unique, and if you get your BFP, the baby you will be carrying will be even more unique. That precious little one will let you know that they are there in their own special little way.

Lisa, I'm sorry to hear the news. That's incredibly disappointing.
I have not seen any sign of AF. I impulsively tested this afternoon and saw a faint faint faint line. My partner saw it too, and he has poor vision up close... so maybe it really was a line. There definitely seemed to be some color to it. I've been pretty wiped out and a wee bit nauseous today. I guess I'll test again in the morning if AF doesn't show up and see what happens.

Oxford, the temps sound curious! But then I'm not super familiar with them. Happy BD either way!!
Cressy, I feel like I'm reading my own post when I read yours--9 dpo and been insanely cranky with my husband, and he's so sweet... It's totally impulsive. Plus breakouts since last week around Wednesday
Around wednesday is when I started getting the break out. You and I are on about the same dpo. Wouldnt it be great if we both got our bfps this month??post #346 of 5074/23/13 at 3:55pmLisa, I'm so sorry
Cressy, I'm still reading my story own in yours, though I've never been pregnant. Last month my bbs were super tender, but the ENTIRE month, and I had never had that before! But then AF came. I had some sharp pain in my breasts today, and pinchy pain in my abdomen, felt a lot like period cramps though. Things have tasted and smelled a little different today, but I'm so afraid I'm just digging. That said, it would be awesome if we both got the bfp this weekend!post #347 of 5074/23/13 at 5:06pmQuote:Originally Posted by faithrising

Since my last post, im still having mild cramping in my lower abdomen. My period is not due for at least another 6 days, would anyone consider these af cramps, or is it too early to be considered af? Also...have to admit, been staying away from the mirror, due to my breakout, but after I got out of the shower earlier, I took a good look, and it has almost completely cleared up. Yay!! Im still feeling quite nauseated. Im quite bloated, and keep burping up stomach acids. Which could be from my stomach issues. Thought a shower would leave me feeling refreshed, quite the opposite actually. I feel like laying down and going to sleep. A lot of heartburn. Sense of smell getting a little more sensitive.
With that being said, Fx for everyone, myself as well. Please tell me your thoughts on the cramp situation. Thank you ladies, the women on this site help me out a lot.Give me hope.

I'm not feeling hugely hopeful for this month, between my last AF being odd and not being sure if I actually ovulated. I'm on day 15 (assuming I ovulated when I think I did) and expect AF tomorrow. I could probably test now, but I'll probably wait until Friday because wasting a test offends my sensibilities and I'm not actually late yet. Or maybe I'll do one tomorrow morning so I can know whether to expect AF before I head off to work. Drives me crazy because everyone else is several days late by this point, so it *feels* like I should be late already, but I'm not :p
Symptom-spotting, but I'm pretty sure that mild nausea and food aversions are just part of my PMS (or psychosomatic) now, because I've experienced that the past several months. I did have a rather wacky vivid dream last night.post #350 of 5074/24/13 at 9:12ampost #351 of 5074/24/13 at 9:14amquote name="ocelotmom" url="/community/t/1380825/april-tww-thread/330#post_17339010"]I'm not feeling hugely hopeful for this month, between my last AF being odd and not being sure if I actually ovulated.

I know exactly how you feel, im used to a 28 day cycle, then last month it turned into a 30 day cycle, so im basing everything off of a 30 day cycle for this month. Quite confusing actually. Fx for you, I know how frustrating it can be. Best of luck.post #352 of 5074/24/13 at 9:23amHi Ladies,
Sorry I pulled a disappearing act last month. I had to have a tooth extracted right when I was supposed to O. I just had absolutely no desire for sex at all, all month long then my period started an entire week early so I am pretty sure I just didn't O at all. This month I am 5 dpo today I think. We had a good stretch of BDing right a the correct time so I am hopeful. Also I was nauseous this morning but the happens sometimes to so we shall see.
Congrats to all the new BFPs. Sorry I haven't kept up.post #353 of 5074/24/13 at 9:23am10dpo here, 5 days until expected af! Felt very sick and tired as well last night, still in a very bad mood with boyfriend. Ended up in bed at 9pm. Only to wake up this morning at 715 with a horrible backache. The cramping I had yesterday is gone, so far. All I have is a backache. Hopefully the cramps dont come back. I was thinking..probably too much, but if my cycle goes back to the 28 day cycle, as it usually is, af would be due in 3 days now, and maybe the cramps could have been a pre af warning. Ugh...the tww is so exhausting!! I have not heen stressing a whole lot on it this month, which is probably why I dont have the "symptoms" that I usually "think" I do. I think the past few months, I have been so stressed and trying so hard, I "made" myself have the symptoms. Oh well, im hoping that the less stressful environment will pay off. Fx to everyone!

It usually just smells of cleaners, so I scrubbed both my bathrooms, then as I walked through the house I could smell dog. I do in fact have a dog. He is a very large Pit! He has been a house dog his entire year and 5 months of his life. He has a kennel inside the house that he sleeps in at night. I wash his blankets every 2 days. But wow, it was so strong it was making me sick to my stomach, so, I took the blankets out, washed them, and scrubbed the inside of the cage. Now, him and the cage are in the garage. The door in the garage, leading outside, has a large doggy door, so he can get in and out. Hopefully this will go away, and he can come back inside. Unless, of course, this is a real true early pregnancy symptom! Not getting my hopes up though, the last few months, I have proven to have "strange" unaccounted for "pregnancy symptoms!" I've come to the point now, where I am not reading too much onto any symptom I have or do not have. I think I am wanting to be pregnant so bad, that I am convincing ,myself i have certain symptoms! Anyone else feel this way?post #356 of 5074/24/13 at 1:26pmpost #357 of 5074/24/13 at 2:18pmHave fun and good luck TaterTott!!
Cressy, I understand! Yesterday I had a banana that tasted more like a hotdog, and when I walked in to work yesterday I thought someone had made breakfast (nope) and today I thought it smelled like popcorn. None of these were super strong though, and that banana might have been off...post #358 of 5074/24/13 at 2:47pmpost #359 of 5074/24/13 at 5:06pmpost #360 of 5074/24/13 at 5:26pmQuote:
What dpo were you when you took this digital test? I actually have one of those laying around, leftover from last month. I wasnt planning on even bothering with testing until af was supposed to show. But...im sure you all know how that goes.
