Achy legs at 6 dpo — The Bump
Trying to Get Pregnant

Achy legs at 6 dpo

I have crazy ache in the legs and extreme fatigue since 4 dpo. I am 6 dpo today. I am wondering if there are others out there who experienced this before their bfp. Also, is there anyone expecting their AF on May 3rd and on a 30-32 day cycle. Would be nice to compare all the symptoms and have an AF and TTC buddy!! :-)

    No. Implantation won't even happen until at least 7 dpo so that's not pregnancy related. Also- if they are pregnancy symptoms you will be able to turn a test positive. Sorry.

    I suggest you lurk these boards and take the advice on temping and reading Taking Charge of your Fertility. There is also a 2 week wait thread. Good luck.

  • No.

    And most people here are TTC. Sure there are a few who have other children, but most do not.

  • Hi, we really don't recommend symptom spotting here, it just leads to disappointment.
    The truth is( read as the ugly truth) here is 20 percent chance of conceiving every cycle, with correct timing.
  • On the real, though.  Not possible to implant that early, as others have mentioned.

    Thanks for all the well meant advice. I have been trying really hard not to symptom spot. Cant help it since its my first month trying. I think i would get over the obsession soon enough though. I have been temping since two months and used OPKs for this cycle. 

    I'd love to see your chart! Mine are in my siggy.
    You may learn after a few cycles that symptom spotting is completely worthless. You might even find (like I did) that you have more symptoms on bfn cycles then your bfp ones.

  • Sounds like you need an extra dose of vitamins to me. Make sure you are taking prenatal vitamins.

  • Eating bananas and drinking plenty of water also help with leg cramps.

  • Have you been walking a lot? I've been pg 3 times and never had leg cramps. Just think about it, isn't it far more likely that you're just having a regular old leg cramp that has nothing to do with your uterus?



    I had leg cramps during both of my pregnancies, however they occurred during the 3rd trimester (and either way would mean nothing to OP). Not sure if you meant in general you didn't have leg cramps, or just in early pregnancy you didn't, but I was under the impression they are more common during the later stages of pregnancy (and still not relevant to OP).
  • That's true for me too. I was only thinking about 1st tri. But I figured my 3rd tri leg cramps were probably caused by the 40 pound weight gain. Lol. Btw, I am getting physical therapy now to deal with the muscle tightness leftover from my pregnancies which is causing me to pee myself a little. Apparently, it's not normal to be unable to bend your leg to the side, even when pregnant. I highly recommend PT for muscle problems, even if you don't pee yourself. My therapist is amazing and even helps "train" for pushing out the baby. :)

  • I had horrible leg spasms the 3rd tri with DD :(
    It was nearly impossible to sleep.
    I tried everything...banans, supplements, massages...walking...resting....nothing helped

  • I am going to take up the advice on banana's and supplements. The legs ache to the point of distraction. I have never had anything like this before. Its probably all the stress of anticipation.
  • I get horrendous cramps in my legs with pms - thanks AF.  Advil or Aleve really help.

  • I just got a faint line on FRER. Is that even possible? I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and PCOS few years ago, but have regular cycles. So OPKs and even temping don't exactly work for me. Could I be wrong about my ovulation date? I won't believe this until I miss my AF and test again.

    Yeah, I think OP needs to eat a banana

    You can't be 6DPO then if you got a positive. It doesn't work like that. You don't even implant until 7-10 dpo

    Sorry, hun. Symptoms don't mean anything before your BFP. Also, you can have none & be pregnant.

    It's all luck of the draw.

  • This is one situation where I kinda wanna see the pee stick.

    OP - you can't post it here ... it's against the rules, but if you want to send it to me in a PM I'm curious.

    @missteacherlady16 is right though. You don't implant until 7-10 days so it would be impossible to get a positive at 6dpo. So either you're not actually 6dpo or it's not really a positive.
    missteacherlady16mrsespigreen
  • Agreed, test again fmu. Maybe you ovulated sooner than you think? Maybe you have "line eye"?
    Good luck on getting your bfp

  • I'll third that - I wanna see the pee stick

    Of course, if you're reading it outside the alotted time frame, then the test is invalid.

    It has yet to be sent to me but if it does, I'll let you know.
  • Am I the only one that isn't all that isn't shocked by a "bfp" after this whole discussion? 

    No, it's definitely fitting.  I want to see the chart.

    That's how the world works.  It's a cruel and curious thing.
