thought i would add a thread in the ttc category for ladies to post in after they get their bfp, for their symptoms and tricks!
i conceived and had a m/c in january, then again in march. we have been ttc for over a year. with every cycle other than the 2 i was actually pregnant, my breasts hurt before af and i had various other symptoms, before af arrived. BUT the 2 i was actually pregnant, i didn't have any symptoms at all. actually, my breasts didn't even start getting sore until probably 19 dpo.
this pregnancy was successful with the help of preseed and softcups! (i would def recommend trying softcups if you haven't, i LOVED them, it actually keeps all the little swimmers RIGHT where they need to be!)
hopefully, that helps some! every woman is different, as well as every pregnancy and cycle. my temps stayed high, and i had a beautiful triphastic curve with the pregnancy. both months we got pregnant, we weren't really trying. i know it is very hard, but the more you can relax, the better. try some alcohol! lol we did. an alcohol called "mamawana" we got in the dominican (they said it causes pregnancy) for our friend that had been ttc for years. when we got back. she sniffed it. forgot it at our house. ended up not being able to drink it because SHE GOT PREGNANT that cycle! now, she has a beautiful baby boy. so, why this didn't cross our mind to try it out until 10 months later, I DONT KNOW!!!! but we got pregnant the month during ovulation that we both took just a tiny sip! anyway, GOOD LUCK!!! we will be looking for you in the pregnancy threads!
I got my "BFP" on day 27 of my cycle. At that point I only had one symptom that was out of the ordinary for PMS. It is normal for my breasts to get sore and larger when it's close to my period. Also in a normal cycle, the soreness disappears a few days before my period. The month I got my "BFP," however, the soreness was in a different location... actually, it was in additional locations and it didn't disappear a few days before my expected period. My symptoms since then have been quite mild.
