UPDATE- I wish I could give you guys a positive update but I can't AF came today. I am to the point of giving up bc I don't know what else I can do to get pregnant. It seems like everyone around me is pregnant or getting pregnant with their 2nd baby and all I want is one. I'm just very discouraged. Just thought I would update you guys.
My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for 15 months with no success. This month I tried digital opks. I got a positive on Feb 29. So that night we dtd and ever since then my lower back has hurt and my stomach has not been right. I also just don't feel the same as I used to. So my question is did anyone else feel like this and then find out that they were pregnant? I just don't want to get my hopes up!

I wish you the best of luck! Unfortunately, early pg signs mimic pre-af signs for me. And they never seem to be the same. Based on your opk, you're probably 3 dpo at this point. If you are pg, implantation hasn't occurred yet (typically occurs 7-10 dpo). It takes a couple of days after implantation for hcg to build up in your system so a pg test won't be accurate for another week or so at the earliest. Hope it's a BFP though!
Welcome Lindsay! Glad you found us. I'm crossing my fingers for you. I'm similar to beth in that I have symptoms like that pre AF. Let us know when you POAS!!

When I had pms I always thought I was pregnant. However, when I did get pregnant I felt different. My first sign was extremely sore breasts but I just felt strange like I was walking around in someone else's body or something. I also usually have cramps and actually didn't get any until after I got my BFP so it can happen any way I guess. I think you know your body though and it's always possible. Especially if you DTD when you got a positive OPK. Good luck! I hope this is it for you!
It's hard to tell until you get the BFP. I wish you the best of luck! With my DD, I had no idea for 7 weeks! We weren't TTC so I thought I had the flu all that time LOL But if you are PG you will see more and more signs appearing as the days go by. Hoping for you!
Thanks everyone! I will keep you all posted! We have been trying forever it seems and I'm getting frustrated bc everyone around me is either pregnant or on their 2nd baby and I just want one!
I still feel the same. I do have a new symptom it's a little TMI but I'm having a lot of discharge. Is this normal? I have never had this much before. I do get quesy now too
