Pregnant or just PMS?
Ah, the #1 pastime activity during the Two Week Wait (TWW): symptom spotting. We’ve all been there. We secretly KNOW it’s useless, but we do it anyway. And if not, you just haven’t been TTC-ing long enough :)!
These symptoms are all due to that lovely luteal phase hormone called “Progesterone”. It rises after ovulation and drops right before you get your period. Bloating, breast tenderness, headaches, fatigue, a change in appetite, nausea… all those lovely things can be attributed to Progesterone.
But let’s not hate on Progesterone too much, we still need it. You wouldn’t be able to get or stay pregnant without it! But still; it’s extremely frustrating that you can’t tell if you’re pregnant or not, based on these symptoms!
