Pregnancy Symptoms - Obsessing in the Two Week Wait

Updated on February 21, 2018

Having spent over 2 years trying to get pregnant, I spent a lot of time doing research and am sharing what I found out.

What is the Two Week Wait?

Well in case you didn't know the two week wait (tww) is the time between ovulation and when the next cycle is due to start (i.e. the next menstrual period). It is a time when a woman is in limbo because essentially she doesn't know if she is pregnant or not. The tww can cause women to obsess about signs and changes that they see in their body as this can be the only way to determine at that point if they might be pregnant or not, as for most of that time it is too early to take a pregnancy test.

During the two week wait it is difficult for women to know what they should and shouldn't do - really if you might be pregnant there are so many things that you might not do if you were but if you have been trying to get pregnant for a long time then you might well be fed up of not doing all these things during the tww.

When you are trying to get pregnant, you often notice things that you may not have noticed before, even if you think you would have done! Aches, pains etc all seem new - but what are pregnancy symptoms and what are not?

Many people experience pregnancy symptoms in the two week wait but might not actually be pregnant...

Pregnancy Symptoms or The Mind Playing Tricks

So, now I am speaking from my own experience of the two week wait. I said I was not going to obsess about or even think about pregnancy symptoms during that time but really when you get caught up with it, it is almost impossible not to get involved.

First of all, before I list a lot of the pregnancy symptoms that I found out about when I was on the tww, I have to say that I also found out that a lot of women get no symptoms at all and also a lot of the pregnancy symptoms are also the symptoms of being pre-menstrual. So don't judge your pregnancy on whether or not you have the symptoms!

For me, almost every month I felt like I had a bunch of symptoms that I did not have before I started trying to get pregnant, but really I was only being fooled by my mind or my body and in the end I was not pregnant so none of these counted.

The time that I did get pregnant, I had pretty much no symptoms at all and the only reason I knew was because my temperature went up on the day my period was due to start (it would normally go down with most people).

Symptoms of Pregnancy

So, some of the very early pregnancy symptoms that you can get are as follows:

  • Dizzyness
  • Tiredness
  • Bloating
  • Sore Breasts/Nipples
  • Nausea
  • Cramping
  • Heightened Sense of Smell
  • Difference in Cervical Mucus (lots of creamy white CM)
  • Change in the Position of the Cervix (higher)
  • Bleeding Gums

Some of these symptoms are also apparent before your period is due and so should not get mixed up with that, however, if you don't normally get sore breasts for example and your sense of smell is way over the top then this could be a good sign. Bleeding gums is an unusual one but occurs in early pregnancy on occasion.

Some symptoms that I thought might relate to pregnancy and so I looked up were:

Feeling Very Thirsty
Well I googled this at one point and I found this huge long thread of people saying 'oh yes, I have been really really thirsty too, is this a sign of early pregnancy?' - and they would all be in the tww and said they would come and update the thread once they found out but it seemed like no-one did. Now from this I have to take it that most of them were not pregnant! There were a couple of people who said that they were really thirsty before they found out that they were pregnant but most of the ladies were asking and not telling, and hence building up the post with their 'thirsty' questions and putting it at the top of Google!

So I would say it is unlikely from what I have found that being very thirsty is a symptom of pregnancy, albeit that doesn't mean if you are very thirsty that you are not pregnant!

Diarrhea/Constipation

This was another symptom that people were asking about and it seems that it is possible that either could be a symptom. However, a lot of women who are trying to conceive are taking pre-natal vitamins and these can sometimes cause either of these symptoms to occur.

Try to Ignore Possible Pregnancy Symptoms

So the lesson that I have learned is to try to ignore anything that might be pregnancy symptoms as it actually might not be, it could just be related to menstruation or actually to nothing at all. I had 4 days of cramping and nausea plus some dizzy spells and what I thought was implantation bleeding, only to find at the end of it all a negative pregnancy test. I really had convinced myself at times that I was pregnant - I had not had these symptoms at any other time so why were they occurring now!

In the second part of your cycle, your body produces progesterone and this can cause some symptoms like sore boobs so these may not be pregnancy symptoms but just part of your normal cycle. However, if you do not normally get sore boobs then that could be a sign!

Perhaps it is just our mind that plays tricks on us during the tww, or maybe we just notice more because we are taking notice. In any case, don't obsess (easy to say) and just try and keep yourself busy during the two weeks until you get to the point where you are ready to take a pregnancy test.

In the Two Week Wait and Want to Order Some Tests?

These small pregnancy test strips are really easy to use - you just dip them in some of your pee and wait for 5 minutes. They are also really cheap so if you are a POAS addict you can buy them in even larger quantities. These are much cheaper than you can buy in the shops so if you are in the tww then get your supply ordered now so that you are ready to test at the right time. These are the strips that you can use from about 9dpo as they are ultra sensitive to picking up the HCG.

      Hi Chloe, it is possible to get pregnancy symptoms as early as 5 days after ovulation but you still might not get a positive on a test until later. It would probably be worth testing again after at least the 24th but otherwise there could be other reasons for feeling nauseous and needing to pee so if that goes on without a positive test it might be worth seeing a doctor.

      My bf and I had unprotected sex on April 14th and my lmp was March 26th. Ive been feeling nauseous when I’m around food and also when I wake up. My breasts are sore but I figured that could just be pms. I’ve also had the urge to go pee frequently lately. I took a pregnancy test April 19th and it was negative (I realize it was way too soon to test but I was curious.) Any ideas on what’s happening?

      If she had her period and you had protected sex then that is extremely unlikely. As I am not a doctor if she continues to feel ill it is probably worth seeing a doctor.

      The problem is that everyone has different temperatures so what is high for one person may not be high for another so you will only know if you regularly take your temp.

      It sounds like you could be. If you are pregnant then your temp stays high after ovulation and doesn't go down just before your period is due, so it really depends on your normal temps.

      My AF started on Jan 7th. I believe ovulation was on the 17th. We had sex every other day the week I was fertile. Waited the dreaded 2ww just to have AF start on the 14th day which should have been conception day. Its not a light flow, feeling tired all the signs of a normal AF. Is this normal?

      If you definitely ovulated on 2nd January and you only had sex on January 5th then it is not possible to be pregnant as the egg does not last that long. However, it is very difficult to know for sure that you ovulated on a specific date - were you using ovulation tests?

      I was doing some calculation here on google and it said that I ovulated on January 2 and I conceived January 3 and I had sex on January 5 but I have a headache rn and I still kinda feel like peeing a bit it's kinda going away and I also feel so tired and my period is coming on January 17.

      Did your period start or end on 25th December ? If it started on 25th then yes that would seem extremely early to show a positive on day 15 of your cycle. If it ended on 25th then that would be possible...

      Hi i had my last period on 25th dec and had unprotected sex one week later every two days. One week later (8/1) i had some cramping and abdominal pain and tried to do pregnancy test for curiosity. 3 test showed faint line, isnt it very early to show positive? Notice that i have irregulare cycle about 35-40 days sometimes more.

      @Sandra yes, every body is different but symptoms only really start once the hcg is produced and that doesn't tend to differ very much.

      @Chloe I think the thing is that we really start looking for symptoms when we think there is a chance we might be pregnant. I would leave it until your period is due and if you are still worried then take a test but it sounds like the chances are slim.

      @Sandra, yes for sure you can get symptoms early but it takes a while for the hcg to be produced that causes the symptoms so the earliest really that symptoms are felt is likely 4 days but even that is pretty rare.

      @Cb It might be worth testing...

      @Chloe yes the egg only lives for 12-24 hours after ovulation so once that is done you can't get pregnant, but you can't guarantee that you ovulated on day 14. As you had sex on day 17 it is unlikely but there is still a slim chance, even if you ovulated on day 16 say, that you could get pregnant.

      @Jessica - watery cervical mucus often occurs just before ovulation and is nothing to worry about - however, if the mucus smells and you have any other symptoms (like itching or burning) then you should probably see your doctor in case of an infection.

      I don't know if i am pregnant. My period was 10 days late, and it wasn't normal. My period last 7 days this lasted 2 days, and i can't call it a period. I wore a tampon usually i buy the super because my period is so heavy. My tampon was making me uncomfortable, because it wasn't filling up. I stopped wearing them after two days, and not once did i leak blood. I can stand up normally, and it would gush out(tmi sorry), but nothing. It was dark brown and not bright red. after two days i would wipe and i would have min pink on my tissue. I been throwing up at night/morning, my mouth been so watery, i been feeling stretching in my sides, tons of mild cramps, my smell enhanced, my nipples are so dark, and etc. My bf think i am pregnant, but I don't want to get my hopes up. I'm scared to take the test because this is something we wanted for a while and i don't want to be disappointed.

      Hi Jo, it is really not unusual to be 1 day late - in fact it is more unusual to be 28 days on the dot every month! I can't tell you what the spotting was a week later, it can sometimes be the result of slightly rough intercourse or some people have some spotting around the time they ovulate. The symptoms you talk about could be pregnancy symptoms but you don't say if you had unprotected sex around the time you ovulated and if your period this month is now late so it is difficult to say.

      I usually had a normal 28 days cycle. But last Nov, I’m 1 day late. I had a light mens that lasted for 4 days tops and then just after a week, I had spotting that only shows when I peed and lasted for 3 days. Since then I was having these sore and fuller breasts, increase appetite and always feels tired symptoms. I already took 4 PT but all of the results were negative. What do you think is happening to me? Can I possibly be pregnant?

      Jackie Grant 4 months ago from UK

      If you get a faint positive test after your period is due and then that goes to negative then it is possible that you had a chemical pregnancy. These are actually very common and sometimes people don't even realise that they have had one as it just appears like a late period. If this is the case then there is nothing that you can do apart from wait for your period to arrive which it will likely do quite soon.

      I think one of the reasons for this article was to show that we can still get symptoms that seem like pregnancy ones even when they are not and we son't really know why this is or what is going on. the only real way to tell if you are pregnant is to do a test.

      In theory it is not possible to get pregnant 36 hours after ovulation as the egg does not survive that long (apparently it survives for 12-24 hours) but in practice it is not possible to know exactly when we ovulate even with the best tests!

      It is possible to get symptoms 5 days after ovulation but tests will likely not be accurate until at least a few days later (maybe even 4-5 days before your period is due) so it is probably worth waiting before you test.

      It sounds like there is a chance that you could be pregnant so it is probably worth testing. Being overweight can hinder your chances slightly. If you have been trying for 3 years then it is definitely worth seeing your doctor and getting some tests done.

      If you miss pills or take them late then there is a chance. You can test around 10-14 days after you were due to ovulate which might be around day 24 to 28 of your cycle.

      If your period came afterwards for 3-5 days then I would say it is extremely unlikely.

      It is possible that you tested too early so I would wait a couple of days and then test again.

      It is probably worth doing another test but if the tests are coming out negative then they aren't usually wrong.

      It is extremely unlikely if you had protected intercourse after your period.

      I had my first time on oct 24th and i took the plan B,i had some spotting then my period on 27th..my ovulation was predicted to be on 9th of November and I had protected intercourse on 10th..since that day I've been feeling kinda cramping before my period and a light backache. Is it possible to get pregnant, I'm scared and anxious all the time

      It really depends how long your cycle is and if you had sex around the time you ovulated, and if not taking the BC had an effect on your cycle so it's not really possible to tell until 10-14 days after ovulation whether you are pregnant or not.

      As nuvaring contains hormones it may well affect your cycle if you stop using it. You can usually get a positive HPT around 9 days post ovulation at the earliest (but not always that early) so you need to know when you ovulated as to when the test will be accurate. To get a good indication you need to wait until 2 weeks after ovulation.

      Forgot to take me BC for about 5 days or more. I’m married and haven’t seen my man for awhile he’s in the Military.

      November 3rd we had Our moment for 3 nights. Today is November 12th and my period doesn’t start till 2 weeks. The only thing that hurts right now is my boobs and they never hurt till the day before or during my period. And I’m always sorry buy going to the bathroom. Sometimes back pain but not much.

      Yes I think it is probably too early for an HPT as you are only on day 14 of your cycle. In fact this is about the time you would be ovulating so some people do get signs of ovulation including slight cramping. Are you using ovulation tests to check that you are having unprotected sex at the right time?

      Hello,

      I have just recently had my period on the 25th October. I realized that this period was lighter than it normally is, I only had to use 11 pads and it ended rather quickly as my periods normally last about 5-7 days. I am sexually active and me and my boyfriend never use protection. Sunday morning I woke up and noticed that my nipples were very stiff and highly painful up until now. I have been experiencing runny poo, I have a slight pain in my lower back and my belly has a crampy feeling to it. According to my glow app my next period is due on the 22nd November. I really want to take a pregnancy test as I have been trying to conceive for a while with no luck but at the same time I don’t want to take one to avoid possible disappointment... I am 22 years old and I just don’t know what to do :(.

      And honestly my period last 5-6 days and tmi they usually heavy but like I said on the 1st to the 3rd it was just brown and honestly I didn't even do that with my first two babies and the bled for one day. That's not normal for me. And the 26th was my last day not the 28th my SO remembers so he knows when to b supportive lol but I think he is scared cause we women know how we act when AF shows up. Lol But thanks ladies!

      I guess it depends on if your period finished a week and a half ago or started a week and a half ago! If it started then you are only on about day 11 of your cycle so yes too early and actually if you are on day 16 or so, then unless you ovulate early (maybe day 10 or so) then it is quite likely too early as well.

      Jerry, I would definitely contact your doctor and get a blood test in order to see what is going on. It very well could be a pregnancy considering your SO has had a vasectomy so long ago with no check of spermies since..

      Jerry 5 months ago

      Well today I'm 12 days late, my SO and I well.... we really ain't trying because he actually had a vasectomy done 15 yrs ago, but being told by people, that men that had one done are suppose to check up on it every 5-10 yrs to make sure there isn't no live sperm.... Well my periods are usually on time and never had a period miss this long 6 days the most but not 12 days. I usually get my periods around the 26th or 28th end of the month, and on the 1st to the 3rd I had brown discharge and the 4th day I bled for the day and not heavy period like usual and the 5th it just stopped and haven't got it since. I'm been sick and here I'll throw up out of no where thinking that coughing so hard it will happen but never once thought morning sickness. Till I realized how late I was. Confused and just need other opinions. I honestly don't want to do a HPT cause I just want my AF to come. I was going to just wait another wk. #WhatToThink?? #Help!! #NeedAnsweres?!?!
