Ok.... I can't post my DPO because we are still trying to determine when exactly it happened. Her'e some of my things though:

Very sensitive nipples (not hurting, but I could feel them there much more, usually I know when DH is touching them but can't usually tell exactly where TMI i know)
No zits
Very tired (Could be that new job I started LOL)
Very emotional
Last night (8.27) BFN.... no AF yet though, but should be here tomorrow or the next day with these zits that showed up in the past 2 hours!

Not that I ovulate often, but the time before last, I had:

Sore Sore boobies
Erect nipples, like little rocks
Funky feelings in my uterus
Then started spotting at 10dpo
At 11 dpo there was AF.


I was so depressed!

Marcy, you won't believe this but I've been toying with the idea to post an identical thread (only I wanted to call it The PHONY Early Symptoms Post) for two weeks but never got round to do it, so now I'm glad you did it for me!! Big Smile

I love the Early Symptoms Post (and I will continue to visit) but I have to admit it makes me obsess to no end. It is be great to have a post like this where we can take a reality check and learn/try NOT to obsess. I had most of the symptoms described in the ESP one time or another in the 2ww and yet never been PG. Here are some of them:

- AF-like cramps and pulling and stretching in lower abdomen. Yap, have to live with the fact that it is a normal phenomena for me from ovulation to AF.

- Nausea. I often have nausea in the 2ww. Can't explain why. According to my doctor nausea is contagious. You can think of having nausea and you can get it, you can WANT to have nousea and you will have it! Amen

- Implantation spotting. Had that at 8 DPO couple of months ago, yap, accompanid by cramps.. Was so excited I told DH and made HIM obsess. Need I say it was one of my worse cycles.

- Implantation dip. Had that too, in June. Look at my chart if you don't believe me.

- Gas, constipation (sorry, TMI) lightheaded and hot flashes. well, looks like these symptoms are not a prerogative of being PG!

As you can imagine I now ignore every sign I might have in the 2ww and my life HAS improved! Big Smile
The only recorrent symptom I haven't had so far is tons-of-creamy-CM. So that's is the only thing I'm keeping watch for!Wink

My obsessiveness about pregnancy symptoms is definately contagious. This past cycle my husband pointed out that my nipples were darker than usual, and wasn't that a pregnancy symptom? LOL. I think I've been talking about pregnancy "symptoms" too much with him.

What are my non pg symptoms? Well, every symptom that is posted on the pg symptoms board!!

You name it? I've had it! (hahahahahaha!).Big Smile

No,really, my pre AF symptoms are sooo similiar to real pg symptoms, it is unreal. I no longer pay attention. Just to anything that really stands out!

Phony symptoms I have had in all my cycles:

Sore nipples from O to AF - gallop downstairs without a bra and I know about it!
Yellowish creamy stretchy CM - lots of it.
Nausea - usually due to DHs driving or lack of food.
Always pert nipples - mine are usually flat & so I call them lazy).
Sharp and dull twinges in my lower abdomen.
Temp dips in most cycles.
Never been triphasic.
My LP is usually 9-10 daysSad

What I have this cycle ( currently 11DPO):
Nothing much apart from a few dull AF like twinges.Wink
Nips have become a little tender in the last day or so.

I really think there is no such thing as an early symptom. Everyone is different and so react in different ways to the progesterone.

What 2ww symptoms? I get symptoms PRIOR to Oing! For about 2ww before Oing I was nauseous, achey, feeling funky and extremely tired (even taking naps during lunch), I even had a day with a really nasty taste in my mouth. So far since the s/w thinks I O'd I just have spotting and the feeling building up to AF.

Funny you should say that - I have had a magnetic kitty for about 3-4 days now. AF started this afternoon.....Sad I think she likes to wind me up - or maybe they sense that you'll be needing some comfort soon....?

I thought of another post that would be really helpful to keep us from obsessing up the whazoo ... its on the grads board, too. "PREGNANT w/minimal 2ww symptoms?". Hopefully it'll get bumped with responses!
