    In keeping with Yaya's original suggestion, I am hoping that all those who have had a recent :bfp: can post on this thread (meaning we don't have a bunch of individual threads but rather one big thread that folks in the 2ww can check out). Ex: "Ah, I see 3 out of 5 posters ate cream cakes..."

    I'll go first cutting & pasting from my journal, but am really hoping that other folks can cut & paste their info onto this thread as well to have it all in one place.

    So symptoms, aka "why did I test when my temps were generally lowish and had actually dropped a little that morning and also I had expressedly said that I wouldn't, ahem)

    1. Just a "feeling" (yes, you may throw things at me now)
    2. A little more CM than usual (though nothing like my first pg)
    3. Nice full bbs (welcome back, ladies, how I have missed you)
    4. Mid-day naps that could not be avoided: total body shut-down, awaking with pillow lines on face & drool on mattress (these came on much later in my first pg)
    5. Two giant whiteheads on my chin (noticed CD11 after taking test & staring into mirror in disbelief)
    6. Funny CP- sort of low but also anterior, or something, i.e. where I would usually be able to feel the opening I could only feel the tip (again, only noticed after testing)
    7. Ridiculous mood swings (see post CD9 as example)

    Other than that, truth be told I feel like I may get my period at any moment, which apart from being exactly what I felt last time, is also exactly what I feel this time of the month every month.

    When I was pregnant the symptoms I had were.
    1)Wasn't able to get drunk on my honeymoon just wasnt in the mood for alcohol and even when I drank I didn't get drunk
    2) Extreme tiredness (I noticed it after HPT came back +)
    3) metalic taste in my mouth

    With no.1 I had these symptoms:

    1. Cuppa tea made me gag
    2. Reading thru a menu in my fave restaurant I just could not find anything I fancied eating
    3. Big gush of watery cm. Thought I'd peed my pants!
    4. Boobs grew overnight
    5. Two spots of brown blood I guess it was implantation spotting
    6. Sugar craving - ate tonnes of chocolate but i don't normally
    7. Completely lost my temper with best friend - shouted at her then burst into tears

    The first week after ovulation I had metallic taste in mouth and a little bit of yellow discharge. The second week I didn't have any symptoms--except for being really, really cold...which I still am--with intermittent 1 minute long hot flashes!

    Sounds odd but I had very, very dry lips. I have had to use tonnes of lipbalm, something I never use!!! Other than that the usual sore boobs, cramps, spotting, extreme tiredness.

    1) I had a 'feeling' I can't explain what it was or anything but before I even tested I just knew, intuition or something I guess - I never believed in it until it happened to me!
    2) Really odd taste in mouth, wouldn't say metallic as such but very odd - nothing made it go away, it was just foul!
    3) Gagging at smells/tastes! I had to buy strawberry childrens toothpaste because my usual minty fresh one was YUK, and I couldn't stand OH coming anywhere near me just because of the smell of him!!! He doesn't smell lol but you know what I mean - that individual scent that people have??? (Hope you guys get me there!!) Hugo Boss aftershave *vomits* lol
    4) Tired/dizzy/headaches/spots!

    And these symptoms were all BEFORE I got my BFP at 4 weeks!!! My sickness and other lovely symptoms came at around week 5 - 6!! x

    Great thread.
    I was just wondering about whether these symptoms were so visible in the 2WW that it made you suspect you were pg OR, did you not expect a BFP at all, but can look back in hindsight and see you did have symptoms after all?! (if that makes sense?!)

    The fact i had LOADS of lotiony CM in 2ww was a bit of a clue for me cos i never had this, i then started cramping which could have been PMS or early pregnancy.

    Really tired about a week before AF due. Needed to pee all the time. A few days before AF due got really spotty. Also loads of creamy white CM. The thing that made me test was shooting pains in the boobs.
