Does anyone else get incredibly tired in the middle of their cycle for no reason? I'm wondering if this could possibly be an ovulation symptom. So do you guys get fatigue? Are there any other strange symptoms I should look for?
Hi babyhopes - yes fatigue is a symptom of ovulation! Once you ovulate, you start producing progesterone which makes you more tired than usual. When you get pregnant, you body produces even more of it, which is why pregnant women are exhausted in the early stages of pregnancy. But yes, every month on 1-3 dpo I just want to sleep all day!
I get extremely sleepy before I ovulate. It's like my body needs that extra sleep to pop an egg out and so it makes me sleep lol. I've been really tired the past few days and didn't know why until I got a positive opk yesterday.
I also get one sided twinges, and some months really hungry too.
