So Confused

Hello All,

I know that there is no way that any of you can tell me if I'm pregnant or not, but I've learned so much just by reading these boards that I thought I'd ask for your advice/gut feeling on this.

I am about nine days past ovulation and my breasts are feeling really sore and heavy -- different from when I get my period. I have been feeling sick to my stomach every day since about Wednesday. But, my husband and I have been under a lot of stress lately and I've hoped I've been pregnant every month (although I have that 'feeling' this month) and I'm playing the waiting game again. Did any of you have symptoms a few days after conception, or just have a feeling that you were pregnant? I have decided that I'm NOT going to take an HPT until I'm a couple of days late but it would make the waiting a lot easier if someone could tell me whether they've felt symptoms this soon or if it's all in my head.

Re: So Confused

My advice would be to wait, and try not to think about it so much. I know it's easier said than done, but stress can actually postpone your period if you're not pregnant (which makes you think you are). You may very well be, but it's best to be patient. (You'll need to be either way- if you aren't pregnant you need patience to keep trying, if you are pregnant you've got 9 months of waiting ahead! <IMG SRC=""> ) So try to set your mind on something else until you are at least a week or so late and then test. Just my opinion. Good luck! <IMG SRC="">

Re: So Confused

Yes I have had symptoms that early. I know that it seems impossible to have to wait till your period is late. But my best advice would be to wait, so you don't become So disappointed when it does come. I have been in your shoes for the past few months, and I know how you feel. Here....have some baby dust!! My best wishes to you!!

Re: So Confused

I had VERY early symptoms this time around. We started trying right after my July period. I started bleeding about 4 or 5 days after ovulation, and I convinced myself that I had cervical cancer and was going to be dead in 6 months, leaving my daughter motherless (the fact that I lost my mind over this was my first symptom.) So I made an appointment with my midwife (to check for any problems), and in the meantime started feeling sleepy and a little nauseated. They gave me a pregnancy test at my insistance (I think the nurse was a little put out with me for insisting) and it was negative. About a week later, I took a home test, and it was really light, but positive. So I took two more over the next few days, and the line got darker with each one. I went back to the midwife and they confirmed it with a blood test. I had no idea that I was pregnant the first time until I took the test (I guess I should have been tipped off by the massive emotional breakdown I had at the office right before I found out but I wasn't), but this time I seemed to know almost immediately. It was strange. Maybe I just knew what to look for, or maybe the symptoms set in sooner because this is my second pregnancy and my body didn't completely have to "retool." Best wishes to you!
