6dp5dt- hello headache (AF symptom 😱)

Good Morning ladies, thank you for all your support- it makes such a difference to read all your kind words. I feel a lot less lonely in this battle! 😃 last night I decided to gorge on pizza to cheer myself up, didn’t have a great night sleep (thirsty) and woke up with headache which is my main AF symptom. Which I had during my failed cycle obviously on the same exact day. Oh boy, why am I such a control freak and have the need to chart and compare charts? Lol

Anyway, my tests are still in my bedside table and we’re one day closer to Friday 🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀wishing you all a peaceful and strong Monday, WE CAN DO THIS! ❤️

Hi Issy

I’m 5dp5dt today and I have a headache too. Headache is not my usual AF symptom but I read somewhere that it is an early pregnancy symptom. I know we shouldn’t be symptom spotting but it is soooo hard not to. I haven’t felt anything cramping apart from a teeny weeny bit of pinching on my left side for a few minutes on 2dp5dt. In the past i had hot flashes before all three of my natural BFP tests but then I wasn’t on progesterone. I do feel hot at night when I sleep and my nipples are a little sore (not my BFP symptom) but I know they are due to the cyclogest pessaries. My test day isn’t until Sunday so yours is two days before mine. I will be following your posts closely, waiting for your good news. Are you tempted to test before Friday?

Hey pudding! Yeah sometimes I’m tempted to test, then I think it will be BFN and I’m so sick to see it that I won’t definitely test early....I’m trying to stay positive but this headache is making it hard....we’ve got one more frozen embryo and I was thinking to go straight into another FET to to waste time if we then need to do IVF all from the beginning again 😱...I turn 40 in July! 😱

I’m so want to test but I am trying to hold out as the disappointment of a bfn would ruin my day. I am 41 so I have serious doubts that I will get my BFP on first go. You have a frozen embryo which shows your eggs must be still of good quality. I only had two 5 day blasts but due to my previous three sections, I’m only allowed to have one embryo transferred each time :(

I had a nap just now, hope it is a good sign or perhaps I was just lazy haha

I think you can thank your friend progesterone for that! I don’t have it as a normal period symptom but on all my cycles, positive and negative I’ve had major dehydration and thirst, like I could drink a lake!

Make sure you drink plenty of water, it will help a lot and try not to think it’s a bad sign ♥️ xx

Thanks Kibo- after reading your reply I gobbed down some water ahaha you’re right i must stay positive! Thirst in another PMS sign for me although I gorged on pizza last night and it could also be that (I don’t usually have junk food, have been eating really clean for more than a year now so not used to gorging on food ahaha) how are you? 💋

I bet the pizza was good though! 😂

You’re almost at the finish line, keep your chin up! ♥️

I’m good, my boobs have reached a new level of soreness today though 😫 taking it as a good sign!🤞🏻x

in reply to KiboXX

It was delicious 😂

My boobs are just ‘full’, thanks cyclogest 🙈 this is day 12 that I’m taking it and when it piles up in my system it really takes over....so annoying!

Fingers AND toes crossed for us 🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

Hi Issylove. Try drinking some extra water to help with the headache. You can safely take some paracetamol if you need to. Good luck! Diane

in reply to DianeArnold

Thanks Diane, yes I’m drinking a lot more today and it’s somehow helping ! X

That's good to hear. xx

Hiya the 2ww is such a crazy time.

Your post made me laugh as I also gorged on pizza 5dp5dt on my recent cycle to cheer myself up. It was delicious (and did sort of help cheer me up and my husband was thrilled) but I distinctly remember also have a terrible sleep and extreme thirst/headache combo.

Lots of water cleared the headache, like loads, and I never slept well again as the crazy vivid dreams and waking up for the toilet in the night began 😂.

Sending you all the luck in the world for Friday 🤞♥️ x

Omg really? Ahahaha I know but it was worthy! I’ve got some pizza leftovers but keeping it for hubby (who will be delighted) I really need to go back to my broccoli today ahaha

Thank you so much for the luck 🍀I really need it❤️

I’m going to take your inspiration and get back on the broccoli eating train. Thank goodness mine is frozen as I’ve only been avoiding it for the past 2 months 🙈.

Swear I haven’t just been eating pizza though 😂😂 🍕 x
