BIGGEST RED FLAGS FOR ME: Pretty intense random leg cramping (inner thigh, calves, and even foot). AF cramps so early on. Rolling sensation in uterus. Very low back pain (more achy than pain). Bloody taste in the back of mouth. *the hardest symptom for me to believe was the nausea because a coworker and his family had the flu at the exact time so I could have sworn I was coming down with it!
3 dpo: OMG.. is AF really going to show up 9 days early?!?! Woke from my sleep at 3am to terrible AF cramps, and had them off and on through-out the day. Right now it's radiating from right to left all across the area right above my pelvic bone. Yesterday I had a bad cramp in my left inner, upper thigh area and today at work a terrible cramp in the left heel of my foot. These cramps are driving me insane....
6dpo today: Not sure what they mean by "metallic" taste...but I'm tasting blood towards the back of my mouth?? Really weird! It bothered me because I couldn't nail what the taste was so I brushed my teeth which relieved it slightly, then about 30 minutes later it came back and it's def a blood taste. I've spit and no sign of blood and I've also blown my nose and no sign of blood. very light BFP, but way too early..took it as an evap!
11dpo: AF is just 3 days away.. something that's normal for my cycles and has yet to happen, NO SPOTTING!!! YAY! So far **fingers crossed** I normally spot through-out my cycle randomly for 2-3 days and I'm praying that I don't start to! Big wave of nausea at work tonight, lasted about 1 minute..but could be catching something..a coworker went home sick today..I hope not :( But we will see ;)
12 dpo: Mild cramps in uterus (not like AF) Nauseous!!! Slight ovary discomfort. Leg cramps still lingering through-out the day but not nearly at bad as they were in previous days. Omg.. so nauseous at random times through-out the day. BFP!!
I know how hard it is with all the ups and downs, emotions and things being that I've been over 2 years of trying. Because of that I almost feel guilty for showing any kind of excitement on here because I know that some have been trying for so much longer, and I understand that even trying for a lesser amount can also be frustrating!! Good luck to you all, and lots of baby dust your way!!!! I know it's easier said than done at times, but never lose hope!!
