This is my first time posting on here but I have been reading everyone's BFP stories for awhile trying to gauge whether it was finally my month or not-it kept me sane! Hoping I can now help someone else out with my symptoms :)
I'm 27, DH 26, DS 18 months. This was third month TTC but have been off BC for 6mo.
Used clear blue OPK this month to pinpoint O day. I do not temp, just used OPK's and O calendar app.
We BD'd on CD9, 11, 12, 14, 15, &16. O day was CD14 (received peak fertility smiley on OPK that morning, lots of EWCM, and twinges on right side).
1DPO- gassy, crampy, EWCM(normal O signs for me) also had some really bad random anxiety pangs in stomach, really out of the blue.
2DPO- BD'd, still more light cramping, lots of EWCM.
3DPO- EWCM,sore lower back, "sick" feeling (headache, dizzy, achy, tired)
4DPO-lower back pain, gas/cramping, no energy at all, sick feeling continues.
5DPO- twinges/pulling/sharp at times cramps in lower abdomen (around ovaries really), still no energy and feeling like I'm getting sick.bb soreness begins.
6DPO- all symptoms continue except now with bloating and loose BM's too (sorry TMI!)
7DPO- all symptoms continue, aversion to milk and cereal (which I normally love! Doesn't make me gag, but just doesn't sound good)
8DPO- still all symptoms. noticed some brown flecks when I wipe, suspect it was implantation blood.
9DPO- all symptoms continue, plus had a crying fit over a small argument with DH lol
10DPO- all symptoms continue, cannot take it anymore-break down and test with FRER (not FMU) see a faint, I'm talking major squinter that DH and I both see! Then it disappears! BFN. Was down the rest of the day thinking it's not my month.
11DPO- all symptoms continue, take another test with FMU (this one was a rite aid brand) faint BFP! Feel like I must be seeing things and refuse to get too excited
12DPO- took another rite aid test in afternoon with slightly darker BFP!
13DPO- took digital test with FMU and pregnant reading :)
Really the cramps I was feeling did not feel at all like period cramps. They were very sharp/stabbing/twingy. Sometimes it felt like I had gas pains up higher in my stomach with no gas.
My bb's were only mildly uncomfortable (like only when you touch them or lay on them)not to have clothes touching them or anything. And they were not swollen (and still aren't!)
I had absolutely no noticeable CM. only EWCM right after O, and now today I've begun having some tiny amount of yellowy EWCM.
I am not due for AF for another 3 days still, so got my BFP 5 days before!
DH and I are so thrilled for baby #2, a little Halloween peanut :)
Baby dust to all you TTC'ers!
