My husband and I have started trying to conceive. This was our second month trying. I am using an ovulation kit. On day 11 and 12 of my cycle we had sex and my fertility was high. On day 13 and 14 we also had sex and my fertility was peak on both days. On day 13, I had ovulation symptoms, very bad menstrual like cramps and my body was very achy and tired. On day 16, which I know was not long after ovulation, I had a very bad case of diarrhea. It wasn't related to anything I ate, since no one else got sick who ate the exact same thing I ate. On day 17, I had very bad menstrual like cramps for the whole day, I woke up nauseaus, but that quickly went away and I had a runny nose all day. Day 18 I was fine everything seemed to be back to normal. However today, day 20 my breasts are extremely itchy. My nipples are sooooooo itchy, but my breasts aren't sore. I haven't tested because I am not sure it's soon enough to test. My period isn't due until next weekend, and I am on a 28-30 day cycle. Anyone on here had any of these symptoms before? Or am I just looking for something to tell me I'm preggo that isn't really there ... Please be honest.
For me personally I havent ever had symptoms until I was further along, but there are women who get symptoms almost right off the bat.
First response early response can get you a response early ( i think its 5 days early) its the test i usually use, but i wait until im late because my cycles were being dumb and late every single month whilst ttc
I get symptoms early on, usually notice fatigue, breast tenderness and moody/irritability by 7-8 dpo. If those symptoms are there, I would still wait to test 10-11 dpo just to get a little more reliable test result, usually test with FRER at that point. Good luck!
