For about a week now, it's like my taste hasn't been as "strong". Things taste more bland and not like they usually do at all. At first I dismissed it, but now it's like EVERYTHING tastes different. Then, with a totally different issue, two nights ago I had some of my favorite soup, and the beef in it smelled "weird" to me, even though my husband said it tasted and smelled fine. I had to stop eating it and move the bowl away because I didn't like how it smelled/tasted, it was just icky to me, but didn't make me nauseous or anything.

The only other time I have had this issue was with my first pregnancy back in March and I continued to have it until (and a bit after) I got my period when I would have been about 6.5 weeks pregnant if I hadn't miscarried. With that pregnancy I got very light positives, but they were still definitely there and with different brands, but this time I'm really not getting anything at all. I know my last ones had to have been evaps because they all had them, and they were a bit like that last cycle too. What the heck is going on with me? I'm CD30 today and I don't have ANY breast tenderness or anything. My only symptom is that I keep having a lot of CM (for me) and feeling really wet down there the last few days and my cervix has been soft for days.

Last cycle was only 31 days (and it's usually not more than 33), but I have used 3 different batches of IC's and nada. I haven't had ANY cramps or hints that AF is coming, so I'm terrified I'll have a super long cycle for no reason. I don't think I'm pregnant at all, in fact, I poured myself a small glass of wine because it's day before AF and I haven't had anything close to a positive yet. But what the heck body?? I can't wait until my appointment in December. I'm starting to get really down about this TTC stuff. It's just this looming sense of sadness and depression from not being able to conceive and it's coming out more and more lately. *sigh* I keep taking it out on DH by saying randomly mean things. I feel like such a jerk, it's just really depressing me, and now all this confusion!

Have any of you ladies had experiences like this? Any thoughts?

I hope it means something for both of us! But I don't expect to be one of those that doesn't get a positive until like 8 weeks. lol i still hope for you though! I hope that bath water stays weird smelling!

Yeah I do. I lost my taste a little at 4 weeks. Now at 5.5 weeks I can not taste much at all except for spicy stuff and sweet stuff. My drink an nice cuppa T now has the taste of used dish water.

I was on the train on the way here and I could smell someones salad on their butty...

I believe it is one of the first things that happens when you get into established pregnancy like initial implantation is complete and the hcg gets higher. It is to aid the mother into smelling danger.. as one sense gets better we lose a little of another.

So I really hope this is it for you both. x
