I'm just curious if any of you had this experience.

I am about 9 or 10 dpo right now - experienced yesterday and today VERY light spotting pink/brown, only enough to get on toilet paper not really underwear.

My body plays tricks on me all the time -- thinking I'm pregnant when I'm not.

This time around there's all the usually sore breasts and other PMS symptoms but also:

FATIGUE like you can't believe. It is that "pregnancy-like fatigue". I'm in a complete fog. Don't sleep too well at night, hot, tired in the a.m. Tired all day and take a long afternoon nap where I hardly fall asleep but rest enough just to make it through the rest of the day and fall asleep again early. ugh! This has been going on for the couple of days I've had this light bleeding.

This morning I had cramps that I thought HAD to be my period coming a few days early (which seemed impossible) but then after a few hours they went away.

It seems EARLY to be real pregnancy tired but I can't imagine what else it could be. Did any of you experience this before your BFP? I tried testing and I got a BFN.

Thanks!

I didn't get any exhaustion until about a week after my BFP (got it at 9 dpo), but I was having AF-like cramps the few days before and after it.

Good luck!

Well the spotting stopped altogether. And cramps continue.....who knows!

Going to bed....exhausted. Cramps are more like tightening - almost like Bh contractions in prior pregnancies.

With DD's pregnancy, I thought AF was coming for a week because of the cramps and all.

It's definitely not too early for the exhaustion. I was certain I was pregnant by 10 dpo this time. The symptoms started at 8 dpo and I've definitely got the major fatigue thing going on.

If you try testing with one of the early response HPTs, I bet you'll see a line.

I did try testing with FRER yesterday morning. That was 9 or 10 dpo. But in prior pregnancies FRER hasn't worked for me until 14 dpo. I should just know better.....looking forward to testing in a few days again if I can hold out. :-)
