    Morning,

    What should I be looking out for as symptoms? I'm 10dpo and only things that stand out are the period type feeling in my tummy, a lot of gas (lovely!) and a wet feeling in my woo, sort of slippery?

    Talking about these things are so ladylike!

    Everyone is completely different, and what is so frustrating is that AF and pregnancy symptoms are so similar. For me (just found out that I am pregnant today) the main symptom that appears to be different from AF and my normal state of being is burping, which seems to occur at an earlier time in each pregnancy.

    2005 mc -no recollection of burping
    2006 DS - burping in 2nd/3rd trimester
    2010 mc - burping at 5 wks
    2011 - burping from 3dpo

    I have recorded all my symptoms from ov to 14DPO (yesterday) on 'Countdown to Pregnancy' but on 10DPO my main recorded symptoms were;

    Gas (burping)
    Sore nipples (not breasts like I get with AF) - not a reliable one
    Just "Feel" pregnant - this feeling lessened over the week as I thought I was being silly
    Light headedness - this has been a constant symptom, but I am anaemic so could be due to this too
    Dry CM - which then turned to thrush. This is also something I haven't had since 23, so made me suspect I may be pregnant.

    Also, throughout the time since ov I have had abdomonal cramping which ranges from AF type pain to dull pressure. I have also felt nausea everyday since 5DPO. Hope that helps!

    Good luck to you, and I hope you get that BFP this month! Xxx

    Well I don't really have any of those symptoms! I think the more you read the more you look for the 'right' symptoms so maybe I will just wait and see if AF is late, due on 5th. I've only TTC once so I know is be very lucky for it to happen straight away.

    Good morning!

    I'm 7 or 8 Dpo today! The one symptom that really stands out is increased appetite, I've been eating like a horse! This is my 6th cycle of ttc and the first time I've experienced this. The other thing is that my normally sport prone skin seems to have completely cleared up... So bfp or not, that's a big win for me!
    Like yourself I've also had some af type cramps, but they seem to be only when I'm hungry so could be hunger pangs? Hard to tell though as at the moment I'm ALWAYS hungry! lol

    Fingers crossed for you honey!

    P.S. 'Woo' is a lovely word for it lol! Made me giggle!

    Please don't despair, as not everyone gets the same symptoms (wouldn't it be easier to spot if we did). I had no symptoms with my son at all, and only knew after a missed period. This is my first TTC after my December10 mc, so all it takes is one time. I did the SMEP plan to increase my chances and I am pleased to say it worked.

    Also, increased CM is a very common sign - I just seem to be one of the freaky ones who had the opposite happen.

    Ok I know this might seem mad but in the last hour or two I've started feeling very nauseous and dizzy, symptom maybe or phantom symptoms! LOL

    Could just be my chronic fatigue showing up though as I've had a busy day.

    Yeah, first bubba for both of us. I'm 30 and oh is 39, we've been ummimg and ahhing for a couple of years due to financial and health reasons as well as just being plain scared. But now seems right, I came off the pill in November and we were aiming to start trying in April time in order for us to get prepared but we had a woops a couple of weeks ago and we are both fine about it so looks like we are starting earlier than planned!

    I have a massive fear of being pregnant and giving birth which probably sounds terrible on this thread but its true. Petrified of it all but really want a child with my lovely bloke so I'm just not thinking about things too much! Actually now its more real I quite like the thought of pregnancy, I've got rose tinted glasses on during the tww!

    So basically we'd be over the moon if it happens but think I'll be v lucky to conceive first go.
