    Default Early Pregnancy Symptoms when Nursing

    I know one of the first signs i had with DD's pregnancy was engorged sore boobs.... but my question is how do you know early symptoms when Nursing? (BF)

    I have had Ferning for about a week ish now with maybe baby
    And period pains/cramps for about 3-4 days
    And starving when i wake up in the mornings at like 5am! lol



    Did a cheapy test from ebay - faint line.. but had 3 x faint lines on these about 3 months ago and negative bt. so dont trust them

    Dont know if i should buy a test or save my money cause i am being silly?

    I think trying a more reliable test can't hurt. If you think you o'd about a week ago it might still be early for a strong line but if you use FMU you might be surprised.

    Good luck

    I think ferning is the pattern your saliva makes when you are about to O. It is something to do with the Maybe Baby thingy.

    Clear as mud huh?

    I have no idea when i o'ed as i havent had AF post birth yet.
    But these are definately AF cramping! BUt for this many days

    It may be another silly questions (but no having AF for over a year i cant remember) how long does everyone else havd cramping b4 AF arrives?

    Charm, Ferning is what happens when there is a rise in estrogen in your body (just prior to ov).. however with hormones all over the place with BF and birth etc etc is isnt always realiable i have been told.

    I did go to the doctors and was starting to talk to her about pregnancy, and she was like are you still breastfeeding? YES, have you had AF yet ? NO, well when you get your period etc etc and ttc then come in for a test... and i thought gee i feel like an idiot and didnt ask and went home.

    But wanted to get all my symptoms out there for comment

    PrincessMya, just thought I'd let you know, we conceived Jack before my AF returned after having Charlize. We were trying, and I just knew I was pregnant after the first month trying. I did a few tests and all had a very faint line, went in for a scan, that only showed up a little blury patch, so was only 4 weeks at the most. I don't know why that Doc would be so mean and belittling like that. You know your body better than anyone else (except maybe DH ), I would trust my instincts.

    PrincessMya before having DS i would get period pain only a couple of hours before AF arrived, but since having DS it varys sometimes i wil have it for a few days, before AF, and other times it will be for a few days and then stop but will come back a day or so before AF starts.

    Goodluck, hope you get the answer your looking for soon
