Hello there. I'm going to agree with Pokey. So many of the symptoms that are due to PMS, are also the same for pregnancy. One thing I've noticed with many of the women on here is that they have all these "symptoms" and are sure they are pregnant, only to have AF(aunt flo/aka period) arrive on time. And many times they don't notice any symptoms, they actually end up being pregnant. I think when someone is TTC, they tend to take mental note more often of feelings and sensations that are having. Once you begin to notice things more often, you start wondering "what was that? Could that be implantation? Are my boobs more sore than normal?" etc.....The only sure fire way to know is to wait until around 12 days after ovulation, and take a test. If it's negative, there is still a small chance, but I'd say for sure, by 14dpo, if you're still getting negative tests, it's likely you're not pregnant. (I know there are some women that don't get bfp until like 8 weeks along, but that's pretty rare). Also, the one thing I've been noticing with a lot of women that are pregnant, is that during their two week wait, they have random strange sensations, or twinges in the lower abdominal area, in the uterine area and/or ovarian area. Another common theme I've been noticing is lots of cervical mucous during the TWW. A lot of women get a secondary estrogen surge about 7dpo that causes an increase in cervical fluid (CF). But that only lasts a day or two. For the women that have been having lots of CF throughout their TWW, they mostly end up pregnant. I myself have noticed this in 3 of my pregnancies as well. Try not to drive yourself too crazy. Feel free to join us on the TTC thread.
