Hi ladies! Let me introduce myself! I'm Liz, I'm 31 from Scotland, I have an 8 year old daughter (going on 18 lol) xx Anyhoo...moving swiftly on. My fiance and I are "casually" trying for a baby, more a case of if it happens it happens. I don't really calculate stuff like ovulation etc. but this month I knew exactly when I ovulated as I felt it. We were very sexually active before during and after this even and I didn't really think anything of it. I know for a fact I have a 26 day cycle. This has always been the case. Anyway the "symptoms" I have so far (which are odd for me cos I normally only get cramping etc. straight before a period and no other menstrual signs) are:- roughtly 3-4 dpo I had a strange metallic taste, like really bad, and nothing could take that taste away. This lasted for only a couple of days. I also noticed things were smelling WAY stronger than they normally do. I actually thought something was wrong with my car, but it was a tyre plant about 1/2 mile from my home burning tyres! It was stinking! I have had quite bad morning diahrrea (yep, only in the mornings) and I'm normally a fairly regular, healthy pooper. also been getting cramps but have put this down to the diahrrea? Bad headaches and tiredness. I did have sore boobs but only a few days after o'ing, but they are fine now. I am now 12 or 13 dpo (or thereabouts?) and I am getting this very very strange "pinging" sensation like the left hand side/just above my pubic bone area? WHAT is that? I have never had that before? Its like when you hit a nerve or something, not quite cramping, but not overly painful, just damn irritating. This is just now and again but is noticeable. I am due AF tomorrow, but have no signs (apart from a bit of dropsy), I have no cramping, no sore boobs or nothing. I tested probably middle last week but hey that musta been way too early, was just getting my hopes up i think! Need some opinions, even if just on the "pinging" thing and look forward to getting to know you all so much better xxxxxxxxxx Forgot to add that I don't really get any noticeable discharge and last week it was really white, thick (no smell) creamy texture then couple days later it was gloopy and clear, but loads of it, I thought I was getting AF early it was that "wet", then its gone creamy again but not so thick?
