Let's talk symptoms...

I'm curious to get other peoples opinions about this...

Every month I swear we finally got PG, there always seems to be a new symptom that I've never experienced before. Cramps, backaches, headaches, sore bbs, tired, grumpy, hungry... the list goes on...

I have never got a BFP and we have been TTC #1 for over 18 months. This month I have zero symptoms, I got

I feel the same way. Symptoms mean nothing to me anymore because I have felt every single one. And each time I try something new (like Clomid or IUI) I swear it's gonna work, and it doesn't. I give up!! I need to just *learn* not to listen to my body what so ever and let each 2WW pass like its nothing!

Every month I think I'm pregnant and every month I'm not. With ds the only symptom I had was my sense of smell increased a few days before my bfp. DH noticed it. His feet were stinky and I got mad that he didn't wash them and put on clean socks, but he had. I could still smell stinky feet :) he called me out on it but I didn't believe it. Then a day or two later AF cramps arrived I actually wore a tampon that day. Next morning I tested and bfp. My real preggo symptoms didn't show for at least a week after my bfp.

all my friends with two kiddos or more have said their symptoms and pregnancies were all different.

It's frustrating. The only true symptoms is not getting AF I guess.

I haven't been trying as long as you, and my heart goes out to you. It has to be so hard... For me I'm just so incredibly frustrated that kid 2 is taking longer than kid 1. Everyone says the second one is quicker. Liars :)

AF is due 4/4. That day can't get here fast enough.

That's true. We probably just notice the symptoms more because we're looking for them and during a cycle that we weren't trying, we may have had the same symptoms without even noticing them. I think it's a good thing not to stress over every symptom or lack of symptoms. Hopefully the time will come soon for your BFP after seeing the specialist. Hugs and hang in there! I can understand that it's hard not to get frustrated because you've been trying for so long.
