I'm currently nursing my almost 2 year old and loving every minute. DH and I literally agreed this past Tuesday, to ttc one more. It was the actual day of my pos OPK. Day 13, of cycle. I had EWCM till Wed and it dried up Thurs so I'm assuming that's when I ovulated. We DTD Wed night.

I conceived my 1st dd on the first try and my 2nd, on the 2nd try. I have always had regular periods and have had my period back for a year and a half; regularly.

I'm 4- 5DPO but since 1DPO I have been feeling off. These have been my symptoms

1/2DPO: TMI...very gassy, dizzy...

2/3DPO: nothing really except starving but ALL food is unappealing

3/4DPO: diarrhea, irritable, slight pelvic achiness. I never get upset stomachs so diarrhea is a rarity for me. It's more like frequent and loose....TMI. Still hungry and stomach growling right after I eat but have no desire to eat ANYTHING. This is usually a PMS symptoms for me but I'm not due for 9-10 days. At night, extremely weepy and irritable. DH says I'm losing it....I think I was. I sensed the tingling in my internal hemorrhoids which only usually happens right before period.

4/5 DPO, woke up an emotional mess! Irritable, emotional...going over the deep end. Starving ....nothing is appealing and not having anything appealing and be hungry makes my cry. Diarrhea today, feel VERY weak for Easter at my fam's....leave to come home. My cheeks feel flushed, like tingly but I have no fever...temp at 4pm is 99.0 I feel out of it and foggy....it is VERY strange.

I'm wondering if you conceive while nursing, if symptoms/hormones are a little more severe or can make you experience some extreme symptoms/feelings. It could be a stom bug or a virus...but no fever and no stom cramps.

My breasts literally NEVER hurt..lol, not during early preg or during, or beginning of nursing..lol, it's as if they don't have feeling or exist either bc they never change in size either.

I'm still so early but is there anyway my hormones are acting more erratic bc I'm nursing, if I'm preg. I know your progesterone increases after "O" and that can mimic preg symptoms but, these are a lot more extreme and earlier than normal PMS.....

What do you think? This is my first time TTC while preg and hoping I can continue through pregnancy and maybe even nurse both!

I had some of the very same symptoms. Except the extra hunger. I had a decreased appetite for a few days. But nothing looks good to me as well. And I had some badddd PMS for a few days I got into fights w/ my husband because I was talking and he wasn't listening while playing a video game (lol which is not anything out of the ordinary). But it hurt my feelings all of a sudden!

I would link my chart to you, but I'm not sure how to do it. So you could see all of my symptoms.
