early signs of pregnacy?
hello fellow icers,
I have been trying to get pregnant now for 3 months and I also have PCOS...I have been using the clearblue fertility monitor and I seem to be ovulating more normal each month! This month I ovulated in day 15 and I used to closer to day 21 or 22! Anyways, just wondering if anyone had any IC symptoms as early pregnancy signs? I never really has leaking with my IC, only sometimes with my period but I have been having more leaking the last week after ovulation and I have has more pain. Any thoughts, experiences or ideas?

Well, I know that if you got that eggie this month (hope you did!! ), it will take 7-10 days for implantation to occur (give or take) and it's after that that you start feeling the symptoms - maybe, lol. For me, peeing more was one of the first things I noticed going on, but chalked it up to IC and/or drinking more fluids (I am currently 16.5 weeks). So, if you're that far past the possible implantation (like I said, give or take - could be earlier than the 7-10 days, but when DH and I were trying, that's what I kept being reminded of, lol. We tried for about 5 months before we got the positive) it could be a symptom! But I also learned with the trying to conceive - that I could make every little thing my body did into a possible symptom, lol. The one month I thought for sure we'd missed it again, was the month I found out I was pregnant, lol. No real symptoms to speak of - well, nothing that couldn't be explained by other things as well, like IC, pms etc.
Good luck and I hope this is your month!!!!!!!!!!!!!Hugs,

Can be a sign!!
My bladder began giving me problems the night before I found out I was pregnant!! I thought that my period was coming It defo has me running to the bathroom more, but hormones in pregnancy can do that anyway...may make it worse with IC though. Especially if you're one of those women who don't go into remission while your pregnant...I am waiting to see what happens with me

During my last pregnancy, IC symptoms showed up within 2 days of testing positive: frequent urination, pain, etc.
