    Hi there,
    Im 10 weeks PP and for the past two weeks I've been feeling some familiar syptoms :wacko:. With lexie my early PG symptoms were bloat, tiredness, abdominal pains, back pain and tender breasts. Which im all now experiencing. I dtd at approx 4 weeks ish, 6 weeks and 7 weeks :dohh:. at 4weeks i was put on the mini pill but it made me bleed heavily so I switched to microgynon as my breastmilk had dried up after a nasty bout of mastitis. I have been umm-ing and ahh-ing about this for a couple weeks but today I've noticed my breasts are getting sharp shooting pains and the veins are very noticible again.
    Anyone had a similar experience? What was the outcome? ~I will pop to tescos today when i get the chance for a frer.

    thanks in advance for any advise

    xx

    I had similar but it wouldve been an immaculate conception for me :haha: I was dizzy, bloated, extra tired, bad skin and nauseaus but I think got a really heavy AF so def not pregnant. I've read other people with the same too but you should definately do a test to be on the safe side :hugs:

    most definitely, i had similar symptoms and did lots of tests, i think it may just be the hormones getting back to normal? x

    ohh my god
    So I went ahead and tested, went to wash my hands came back and thought "oh good negative" went to turn away when i thought i spied a little something a vertical blue line :dohh: got my oh to look he said he couldnt see it. i took the casing off and could see it better then... he went to have a look at the window for better light and went very quiet. he can see it too. now it is SUPER faint so im not sure what to think. it came up at 2 mins though and i had the casing off within 5. whats the chances of it being an evap BEFORE the time limit?
    I'll obviously test again with FMU tomorrow and if that still doesnt convince me ill get a frer or digi.
    how sensitive are clearblue?
    I will not take my pill today just in case but having took it up til now- could that hurt a baby??
    my mind is all over the place my baby is 10 weeks old today
    edited to add: the last time we dtd was approx 1 1/2 weeks ago

    thanks everyone, yeah i tried to get either a digi or frer in both tesco and the chemist and they were sold out. will try boots tomorrow. have another blue dye one that i will use FMU with tomorrow
    I was worried about evaps, this would be an evil one as its faint but its def blue.
    Feel like im in limbo, scared if its positive but on the other hand i would be delighted! but trying not to think about it tonight- will update either way tomorrow x
