I feel like it kinda takes the fun out of the tww if you get all the symptoms anyway. Then you spend time obsessing, it's sore breasts but it feels different. Or looks different. Or the pain is in the nipple not the sides like usual, lol! Only thing we can really do is poas.

I don't think breast tenderness that immediately follows ovulation should be a reason to automatically rule out a BFP for that month. Implantation doesn't occur until AT LEAST 5 dpo and most common is 8-10. Your hormone levels will be the same during the first week after ovulation whether you conceived or not.

The hormone progesterone, which peaks after ovulation is what causes your breasts to be tender in the 2ww. This (prog. rise) is going to happen whether your pregnant or not. The reason they stop being sore right before AF is because progesterone takes a nose dive and drops really low. That's actually what causes you to get AF. If you were pregnant, the embryo would take over progesterone production and the drop wouldn't happen. Therefore, your breasts might remain sore.

All that being said, some women don't have sore breasts after ovulation, or as an early pregnancy symptom. Another case of everyone is different.

This topic peaked my interest, because this is the first month ever that my breasts were TERRIBLY sore a couple days after O and still are, but not as severe. Usually they might get a TINY bit sore right before AF, so this is odd. But it was too early for implantation to have occurred, so I know it's not a pregnancy symptom. Although, I don't necessarily think I'm out for this month yet either. I guess I'll know in a week.

Yep. If you read the other posts, you will see that we figured all of this out already LOL. As far as the progesterone being the reason we feel sore breasts, then it dropping and AF coming etc etc.

And yes, every not every woman feels this from the progesterone rise, I know that of course we are all different! Crazy ladies

First month of trying was great.. learned a lot about my body.. Didnt get pregnant obviously, but its cool to know the signs your body is giving you when it is doing certain things. I am pretty consistent, and that is good too.

If mine were ever more sore than normal, or the pain continued past the day of my longest period (30), then I would know I was pregnant, and take a test...

If its unusual, for you for them to be that sore, sounds pretty good !!

LOL yup that is what I was doing, but I didnt notice anything different.. I wont ever take pregnancy test unless I feel these symptoms for a few days after my period was due LOL.

I wish I could hold out. I'm not as bad as some, but I do test as early as cd7. I just feel the need to get it out my system. Then maybe every other day or two after that. Then when I realize it probably won't be positive I cool out and just wait for AF. Really, I test early to see if I at least will get a chemical pg. I am ttc after a tubal reversal so I just want to know that I can at least still get pregnant.

I wont test early. Because I would be more sad seeing the BFN than seeing AF.. Plus I just wont waste the money. That also would bother me if the test turned up negative lol.

It does make me sad but I get over it. Well at least I have been. I hear you with the money thing. That is why I am out of opks and haven't been using them. When I really can't hold out and I don't want to waste my hpts I run I to the $tree and grab one. Apparently they work just as good, but I wouldn't know that anyway.

Lizzies, sounds like you've accurately summarized it! Yes, logically and scientifically it is spot on as you you've described and like myself, I understand the science behind the sypmtoms at this point. But like you mentioned, this month is a bit different for you. So, aren't you just hoping a tweeny weeny bit that this might be the month? Sigh........every month, I hope is my month. I'm at 6DPO no symptoms yet to read into. I refused to be fooled! Once the girls stop hurting, I know I'll be terribly sad. Who knew pain would be such a welcomed thing! haha.

Anyway, today I touched a pregnant lady. I hope I got some lucky baby dust from her. =)
