I am 7 months past my second c-section, and I'm a little scared going through this so early. But if anyone has thoughts, I'd really like to know. I believe I am currently 5 dpo today. Since the day after ovulation, I have been getting menstrual-like cramps and pulling sensations in my lower belly. I noticed at about 2 dpo, the veins in my breasts were bright and very visible. They still are. Today, the cramps have not stopped. They're dull and achy and I feel like I'm actually having AF. I keep going to the bathroom to see if I'm bleeding because it feels like I am, but I'm 9 days early for AF right now. I'm gassy and emotional. I have been having headaches on and off and it looks like I can see my pulse in my abdomen (weird)! My breasts are a little heavy and kind of tingly and strange like they felt when I was still nursing (I stopped breastfeeding about 2 months ago). *TMI* I'm kind of itchy down below, as well. I DTD on ovulation day, and for two days after, which my charts say were fertile days, but I used the (unreliable) pull out method and I'm imagining now that it failed. Has anyone had these symptoms before? Is it too early to feel this? Please help with any advice you may have.
