8 DPO and symptoms?


Hello! I am brand new to this website, but I find myself in need of support while TTC (especially during the 2ww)!

I'm 24 and my husband and I have only attempted conception a few times while I was ovulating but this is our first month of actually trying.

If this gets TMI I'm so sorry, but what in pregnancy isn't TMI? lol

So our attempts at conception were on November 12th, November 15th and November 17th (my peak day of ovulation). So far over the last couple of days I have had very random and sporadic symptoms that I think are signs of pregnancy? Or I am just REALLY trying to get my hopes up. I wish I wasn't like that. The symptoms have included:

1. Dull, aching cramps in the lower abdomen - not like AF (Aunt Flow - or Shark Week as I refer to it). It's more of a radiating cramp and occasionally there will be pinching on either side?

2. Random waves of Nausea - I never get nauseous unless I'm carsick or ill. A random wave hit me on Saturday night when I was out to the point I thought I needed to stay in the restroom for a few minutes.

3. Mild Cravings - one that was interesting to me though was red meat. I know that this can be a sign of pregnancy but I wasn't sure?

4. Tender breasts - Not really the WHOLE boob, just the very end towards the nips.

5. Random backaches/headaches - the backaches could just be me cause I've always had issues, but it didn't feel like normal. My back normally spasms where as this is a pinch?

6. BLOATING - like NOBODIES business. Normally AF/Shark Week is to blame, but according to the app where I track my ovulation/period I'm not due for a period until December 2nd?

So what do you ladies think. I want a baby REALLY bad, but I am attempting to keep a level head and explain the symptoms away. I don't want to get my hopes up or seem crazy. I'm just ready.

I'm also big on "signs" and a lady from my work just came in with her couple month old baby. She hasn't been in since before she left on maternity leave. Is that a sign?! lol (see the over reactions I'm talking about?)

Update: Officially 10 days dpo. Symptoms continue. I took a pregnancy test yesterday (Nov 21, 2017) only to get a BFN. Couldnít deny I was bummed but I thought ďitís not over till shark week (my version of Aunt Flow) shows upĒ (:

It is now....11 DPO. Yesterday morning I took a pregnancy test before getting in the shower. I let it sit around while I washed my hair and then peeled my head out to see the results. It was a negative. Bummed me continues my shower.

The next morning I get up and out of curiosity I grabbed the test from the mostly empty trash (few papertowels but thatís it) and now it looked positive. So this would have been a 24 hour wait time between. Could this mean Iím preggers? Should I wait a few days and test again?

Iíll try to attach a picture, but Iím pretty sure itís a faint positive to me!

Period is due this weekend (I believe). Still not sure about that one pregnancy test I took on 11 DPO that looked positive. Took another test that showed negative 2 days later (13 DPO) and nothing. I even let it sit for a few days and nothing showed up. Fingers crossed I got a false negative that second time lol

By the way Iím posting updates 1. In case anyone reads this and goes to reply and 2. In case another woman has the same thing and needs to know sheís not alone in over thinking lol

Okay, just took a test. This pic was about 1 minute after the alloted time. Is that a VERY faint BFP?! Or an evap line?
