Just how similar were your earliest PG symptoms compared to your AF symptoms?

I have PCOS, TTC#1, no AF since 12/26/09. Saw fertility specialist 02/01/10 for the first time. During the U/S, he saw many tiny cysts on one ovary, and 1 good-size egg on the other. Endometrial lining was thickened. He gave me HcG injection that day, and 3 boosters. Last booster was 02/10/10. Can't do HPT until at least 02/20.. Today, started spotting like AF is on her way, also have cramps that feel JUST like the ones AF gives me. Spotting hasn't gotten heavy like AF yet.. Thoughts? Similar experiences?

  • Mine have always been the same as if AF were coming. So all i could rely on was missing a period for 5 days and then tested.

  • Not me, but then again, I never have symptoms with my period, just a little bit of a back ache. I had weird symtpoms when I was pregnant, tho., not the ones that you read about. I was nauseous and also very gassy. I basically had diarrhea, but no cramps, no breast tenderness, no tiredness or anything. My stomach felt weird, that's the only way to describe it, like I was sick and bloated. Then, I really knew when I had a metallic taste in my mouth. It literally tasted like I had popped some jewelry in my mouth and been sucking on it. I had symptoms really early, like within a week of conceiving.
