    i am on CD18 out of a 28-32 day cycle. i had sex during when ovulation should have occurred and the past few days, i have had constipation and a lot of gas and pressure. it takes me forever to go and whenever i do, its only small pieces and hard (tmi sorry) but i read that constipation can be an early sign of pregnancy and happen as early as conception....the reason the poop would be hard is because your body is sucking out every possible nutrient for the baby.

    i NEVER have this problem, EVER thats why i am wondering whats going on and if i might be pregnant. also been experiencing headaches, slight nausea and some lightheadedness.

    any advice would be great and thank you ladies! :flower:

    I definitely felt constipated like a week after conception! I thought it was just the prenatal vitamins I was taking? I know iron can affect your bowel movements! Buuutttttt I'm 6 weeks and it hasnt gone away!

    You probably are! :) I just started taking prenatals a week before my missed period.

    I knew I was pregnant a week before my missed period. My nipples were super sore and I felt exhausted. I just knew I was pregnant. And sure enough I was! Good luck! Hope you get the BFP that you're looking for! :thumbup:

    I had this problem too right away, but I always get it a week before AF so for me it was nothing new. strdskitten, i think what makes it a good sign for you is that it's something new and out of the ordinary. Baby dust!

    exactly! i never have constipation and this seems like a huge sign to me. last night at 4dpo, i also has some milkywhite creamy discharge and alot of it! odorless too. i researched and found out that it is leukorrhea and that it is a sign of early pregnancy/pregnancy! also the night before that i had a really weird twinge/sharp pain in what felt like my left ovary....ill keep my FX'ed and thank you for the baby dust! :D

    I had it immediately after ovulation EVERY cycle. It's from the increase in progesterone. I had it in both my pregnant and non pregnant cycles. If it usually doesn't happen to you that could be a good sign that progesterone is higher than other cycles.. which could indicate pregnancy. Good luck! x

    I have had mine from the get go and it is no fun, especially when it bouncing between that and diarrhea, which is no fun either.

    I had severe constipation starting at 6dpo which is when I suspected I was pregnant.
