10dpIUI, Symptom Score

I'm 10 days into the 2ww now, and I've started googling early pregnancy symptoms again. Yes, I know them all already. I've googled them about ten thousand times before. But, you know, always good to stay obsessed during the 2ww.

So, here's what I have:
  • Cramps like AF is about to start. This started yesterday. I've been having cramps ever since the IUI, but they've been different from AF cramps. AF-like cramps are an early pregnancy symptom, but of course, it's also a non-pregnancy symptom. And I've had AF cramps at 10dpo before, so I don't think this one counts. 0 points.
  • BBs are larger than normal, firm and sore. They've been like this since before the IUI and I've had this symptom on previous cycles, so I don't think this one counts either. 0 points.
  • My skin is breaking out more than normal, and in weird places: under my chin, on my backside. I have heard this can be an early pregnancy symptom. I have not had this symptom before. I give myself 1 point for this one.
  • I feel a little run down. But then, when don't I? So that one doesn't count either. 0 points.
Overall score: 1


  1. I'd say you have two points with the sore BBs - hang in there these last few days! Hoping you get a positive in just a few days!

  2. Being the symptom skeptic I am, I'd probably also tally up just 1 point ;-) It only takes 1, though! Haha! I sure hope it's a sign of baby for you!
