By right after ovulation I mean I used a opk and Saturday it was medium drk line (indicating ovulation) and yesterday and today sore swollen sensitive bbs, almost like when I was pregnant- how can that be????

Could you have gotten prego last month and the bbs are sore because you are prego? I don't know how you could've ovulated of you were prego, so Maybe my explanation isn't the best. I don't know...

I was thinking the same thing w/ getting preggo last month but the opk I had 4 very faint lines then 5th was medium drk line... (5 pk). I also did have a weird af last mo, total of 2 days (usually a 5-7 day).... But? Usually I know asap if I am preggers- ?
Can u test positive on a opk if you are pregnant??

Cynthiacosri- your bbs get sore after ovulation? Is that normal? I wonder why this happens (if not pregnant) so soon after ovulation? Seriously mine feel like I was when newly pregnant??!!!

No not yet, I figured I had a light period last month so I didn't think to... I had 2 mc in a row this past summer (one at end of April and then another end of June) I have just been so confused with my cycles physically (but know they are 31 days and 16 days luteal phase) lighter and shorter than before- I chalked it up to my body resetting....

Ok I seriously was going to write the same question, I ovulated on Saturday and my boobs have been sensitive yesterday and today, I also had two mc this year, February and august/sept, each pregnancy my boobs didn't get tender/swollen until at least 6wks in, just thought I'd see if anyone else has the sore boobs after o!

Last month I could have sworn I was prego, bbs hurt (6days before af & they usually do NOT hurt very bad bf af arrives) so i think that was af related. I have been sooo tired, but I just think it is bc of holiday season and trying to do too much!
But the swollen sensitive bbs a day after I ovulated is?? Thank goodness I am not alone in this!

My nipples always get sore after ovulation. It's possible that you've not noticed it before.

Ok so this sounds somewhat "normal"- bbs killing us right after ovulation. does anyone think it is a sign of hormonal issues? Praying it isn't-

Brie, what cd day are you? I could test early on Christmas but don't want a bfn to ruin my day, what about you? I think it's true about not noticing it before, we are so hyper sensitive to everything now, sucks sometimes!!!! Baby dust to all!

Tryin4second-

I am cd18.... Expected af bt 25 to 27.. Totally hear ya on testing ON Christmas- on one hand could be great news on the other kinda a bummer. Although even if I did get my bfp, I would be weary of being very joyful simply bc the last 2times I was pregnant it ended in mc's.. Kinda like once you been down that road you are just a little caucious...
It think what is hard is I am so in tune with my body that any sign sends me into a "am I" near obsessive thought process..
This month we have been doing bd daily or everyother day and just trying to my faith in that everything has it's moment in time, it will happen when it happens.. (however that lasts till my bbs get super sensitive swollen and sore!!!!)
What cd are you on? how are things, you feeling optimistic??

All normal it's hormones but yes u will get a positive OPK if u are pregnant it's a sneaky way to POAS I just read all about that on peeonastick.com

Brie I would test if I were you. Especially since your af was so light and short. I don't want to get your hopes up but you can test positive on opk's if you are pg.

Ok so took preg test and bfn... So weird!?! Bbs are still swollen and sensitive- 13 days till af, maybe she is going to arrive early or something.. Which would be a first in my entire life!!

It is just so frustrating having no idea why my body is doing this?!?


Just want to say thank you to all you ladies for the great advice and support!

Hi ladies I'm confused too. Am still trying to figure out when I ovulate, usually have a 28-31 day cycle. Am currently on cd12 and my boobs feel bigger and are a bit tender on the sides, I don't think I've ovulated yet but temp dipped and then shot up on cd6/cf7 where it has remained give or take a couple of tenths. I am totally confused as I thought just by guesswork- cm I usually ovulated around cd17-19 and I've never noticed bigger boobs b4, had a negative opk yesterday so I have no idea what's going on. Sorry for huge post

Brie - you tested too early! With my last pregnancy I tested before I went to vegas for vacay and it was negative, tested two days after I got back (gone for 4 days) and it was positive, wait for me and we'll test together again soon. I'm not sure what I feel about getting pregnant again, I'm not going to get happy until I pass the 12 week mark since both mc happened at 9 wks or so, I'm setting myself up for a bfn this month and if it's a positive then I'll be happier, it has taken me exactly 4 months to get pregnant with each pregnancy so if it happens before great, if not then I'll be upset but what can I do! I hate that I have to not get happy, it sucks, I'll always be waiting for the other shoe to drop, always on edge! Let's keep in touch, seems like we have such similar stories! Do u start the progesterone when you get a bfp? That's what my doc wants me to do, the earliest I should test is the 24th, af is due the 28th but my cycles have been so outta wack since mc, use to be 28 always, now anywhere from 30-34 days! Ugh so frustrating!!!

T42nd-
As for testing early, someone recommend me doing so bc of short weird period and bbs hurt right after ovulation..
Now i am waiting most likely till miss period, I have kinda had enough of testing before missed period, I am not one to sit and say oh! I feel like sore bbs or twinges or nausea are bc of being preggo, usually pass it off as whatever. But last month felt really for sure I was and disappointed when I got bfn.

I hear ya on the even if I get bfp I will not be out of the world excited until I hit the 12 wk mark. For me mc at 5w4d and then finally mc at 10wks (after a long wait bc the heart kept beating but stopped growing at 6w1d)....

So it brings me today, bbs aren't as sore, no signs or symptoms of pregnancy :( usually I know after a wk... But I am trying to just relax and enjoy the holidays.... I think we'll give it one more try and then go see a specialist......
Hope all is well!!!! Hugs! Bee

Hey forgot to reply about the progesterone, I will have to go on when I find out I am pregnant... You??
I am (usually) fertile mertile, but I have been trying to have a successful pregnancy since March.... Last mc was at very end of June (didn't stop bleeding till end of July)... We started trying in October (waited a litle while I just couldn't take the hormones of being pregnant on and off since march) but no luck oct & nov.... Sounds kinda silly by only trying last two months and being down, but its been a long road and really hard bc of ability to get pregnant and then have it fail... Ya know? I hate to say this but I am glad we are in a similar situation, have someone to share ups downs and hopefully a bfp!!
