I hope everyone has had a good week and looking forward to the weekend!!
I think I am around 7 to 9 DPO. I have not started charting or temping yet. My husband and I just wanted to have fun trying for a little while. My cycles have been regular since coming off of BCP in June. They are 28-30 days and I usually O around CD14 or 15 (that would have been last Thursday).
This past week I have been having the weirdest cravings. I have wanted chocolate milk every day. I usually like chocolate milk but not where I need it every day. I have been turned off to some foods that I would normally eat. I have also had really bad gas (Sorry TMI!) and really bloated. I have had painful but not sore bbs. I have also had off and on "crampy" feeling in my ovaries.Then just now I went to the restroom and saw EWCM. This is the first time I have noticed this much at this point in my cycle since coming off of BCP.
I know most of these symptoms can go either way with pregnancy or PMS. I was just wondering about the EWCM.
EWCM can be very common coming on to your period. I get it some cycles. With that said, if you want to conceive you really should BD, just in case you are actually ovulating late. It can take several months for the body to completely adjust to going off hormonal bc, even if it seems like everything is going fine.
With that said, maybe they are signs of early pregnancy like you are hoping. If I were you, I would be taking a test in the next couple days because I'm impatient like that and can't wait for AF to show or not. lol If you start testing early, make sure you are using concentrated urine. I would never be able to wait til I woke up in the morning for FMU, so I would decrease my fluid intake and hold my urine for 4 or more hours.
Thanks to *Sharon* for the siggy <3
Thanks for the replies! I took a dollar store cheapie today, and it was a BFN. I did not take the test with FMU.
I am really keeping my fingers crossed that this is it. My bbs have been hurting more and more each day. It is like they are hurting like they are growing. I have also been cramping some throughout the weekend. Just hope these are all positive signs!!
