symptoms 5 dpo?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
So i've done quite a bit of looking on the WWW and basically everything i've found has brought me no closer to an answer than i was before.

i'm now going into 6 dpo and just dont feel right. i've had a headache since 3dpo, slight twinges in my lower abdomen (minor cramping for a second here and there), and slight nausea. i've been incredibly fatigued the last 2 days to the point of wanting to go to bed as soon as i get home. today i had quite a bit of CM which surprised me quite a bit. i've also been unusually hungry all the time but nothing sounds good and i feel like if i even SAY the word "food" i will vomit.

i was sexually active 2 dbo and 1 dpo.

to some degree, i feel like i should be beginning my cycle any minute, but am still 2 weeks away.

i plan on taking a test in a week, but was curious if any of the mommies here had similar symptoms very early on in their pregnancy. any thoughts would be appreciated. at this point i just feel like i have a cross between the flu and AF

Oh yeah, you are not alone!

I had lightheadedness and felt dizzy on and off 1 and 2 dpo. on the 3rd dpo I started gettting cramps those last two days. I have also been very thirsty. Today at 5dpo my belly feels weird, queasy almost. (i'm thinking implantation, maybe) I still have a few more days before I can test, in the meantime I'm becoming impatient:

Hope that helped you some.

Hello- I am at 5DPO today too!

I haven't felt good either (stomach issues, fatigue), although there are multiple things that could be causing it, so I'm not reading too much into it.

I think that the "official" story is that you can't experience symptoms until after your period is due, or at least until after implanation. However, experienced moms know that just isn't the case! I for example definitely had a major dizzy spell before my missed period when I was pregnant with my son. And FWIW, I got a BFN with him on 10DPO before I got my BFP at 14 DPO, so it isn't like I had really high HCG levels or anything. So it is definitley possible- good luck!

hey! thought i would chime in since i am also 5 dpo here. feeling all kinds of weird pains and twinges (maybe tmi)....

-slight headache, lightheadedness, little bit queasy-feeling that hungry, empty feeling in tummy even if i just ate.
-weird pains going through my bb's and nipples (i am nursing though), accompanied with lots of stretchy, creamy cervical mucus.
-left side of lower belly feels tight and crampy.
-very tired and irritable

ha! if we are all having these symptoms...maybe we are just obsessing!! lol!

or maybe we are all preggers...wow! can't wait to test ;-)

** during my first 2 pregnancies, i did notice lots of creamy,stretchy cm a few days after conception. i also had the slight cramps early on, and definitely noticed the hollow, hungry feeling in tummy at least a week before i could test. oh, and the slight headaches, too.

i am 10 DPO and my belly has been kinda funny crampy for about 3 days. Today I have this silly headache in my temple. I don't normally get headaches there. I fell asleep yesterday for no reason after work and on my walks to work in the morning I am so tired, like I could lay on the sidewalk and nap.

I'm just trying not to think about it, I have been disappointed so many times before. I don't even really want to test. I am afraid it would be BFN. FF tells me I can test the 7th. I wish it was the 7th.

facinating, these symptoms match mine exactly except for the bb/nipple pain, but then I never had any breast pain during my first pregnancy and I don't feel letdown when I nurse my son. But the lots of creamy cm/ weird stomach feeling/left side of lower belly pain/tired irritable... I am having all of those to the T! Now originally I wasn't reading anything into these signs, look how we just feed into each others obsessive tendencies!!

I am right there with you all I am 8dpo today and I have been feeling like that since 5 dpo too. I took a dollar store test this morning and it was negative. My symptoms match woodstars exactly except for the cm, I have a candida problem so my cm is always sketchy as an indicator. My stomach feels empty right now and I just had two eggs, home fries and some bacon two hours ago. I just wish I knew so I wouldn't be so stressed.

I'm at 8dpo and having the same things. Breasts are killer, I just had lunch and could eat agin. I've had some lower abdomen twinges that made me gasp and cramping that seems like AF is at the door. I wanted to go to bed early last night but my daughter was too wound up.
Plus I've googled "early pregnancy symptoms" too many times.
post #9 of 28
I am 5 dpo too!!! I *think* I am having early symptoms but am not sure, didn't have a ton of symptoms with my preg back in may except tiredness, full/sore BB's and heartburn. Also, major cramping after dtd which is the main symptom I am having now along with my bb's feeling heavier. It is hard to tell if I am more tired than usual or not though.
post #10 of 28
I'm 9dpo and have had many of the same symptoms, the most pronounced being sore breasts and complete exhaustion. I've also had headaches and nausea. ...the thing is I had this last month too and AF raged on anyway so I felt like a complete nutcase! Do you think 9dpo is still too early to test? oy. best of luck everyone!!
post #11 of 28
The earliest I have gotten symptoms were around 8-9 DPO, and they seemed to coincide with evidence on my chart that implantation occurred a day or two before (with DD there was a dip and with this pregnancy I saw a second temperature shift). I suppose if you have REALLY early implantation it could be possible that these could be symptoms.

my symptoms

I definitely had symptoms beginning at 2dpo. I felt very crampy, achy, bloated in my uterus from 2 through 4 dpo. 5 and 6dpo I experienced nausea. 7dpo through today, 11dpo I've had lots of crampy uterine feelings. The cramps feel like AF is coming on or just started.

Also, at 9dpo I wiped and had a smidge of pinkish tinge mixed with some cm. Today when I wiped I had a bunch of light brownish cm with a big red streak of blood in it.

I tested in the evening of 9dpo: Negative. I tested again in the evening of 10dpo: Negative.

I just got back from the store with another 2-pack of FRER and am going to test again tonight. I'm so convinced I am pg I'm just waiting to see that faint line.

Some symptoms are unmistakable! You know your body best.

Good luck to everyone and keep us updated.

4 dpo here...having these same symptoms. Today while walking in Target I actually thought I was going to vomit. I was also confused about why/if symptoms could happen so early...but if I am pg, thsi would be my 3rd child so maybe I am feeling things more this time around?

I *knew* I was pg with my 3rd because I just knew my body so well after experiencing two other pregnancies--I knew what to look for. For me, the crampy feelings, heightened sense of smell, more emotional, etc. are very different when I am in the early stages of pregnancy than at any other time.

hey, i'm 5 dpo too. but the weirdest thing happened this morning...is this normal? my temp went from 97.8 yesterday to 98.8 today....
and the same as all you gals, i've been crampy and headachey. and MOODY.
any body else?
post #16 of 28
7 dpo and I have been really emotional the last couple days. I mean like REALLY emotional here people, like crying at TV commercials emotional. And this morning I woke up really nauseated, of course that could be because I ate a bunch of cheese-its last night before bed... but I was nauseated yesterday morning too. We'll see...
post #17 of 28
I'm rally dizzy today and my nipples have this bruised look.
Causiously optimistic. I'm not letting myself test for another couple days.
post #18 of 28
This is my fourth day of waves of nausea. It is really hard not to test yet!!

wow thank you all for the replies. it really does help me to not feel so alone in this.

just an update. i am now 10 dpo (counting the day i ovulated) and symptoms have let up a tiny bit but not much. 2 days ago i had a major headache and didnt think it was ever going to go away. i've been getting headaches every day in the evening now. Last night, my boyfriend gave me a hug and it felt like my boobs were being ripped off, they were so painful.

a few days ago i started noticing a creamy white discharge and it has now turned into clear discharge. i get waves of nausea, not bad enough to actually make me vomit though.

i dont want to test yet for fear it is too early and i don't want to freak my boyfriend out when he finds a pregnancy test in the trash. i know you are not supposed to test until after you miss your period, but AF isnt scheduled to come until 8/13. has anyone actually gotten a positive result testing 9 days before AF?
