BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP by DPO

The BFP by DPO is hands down my favorite kind of BFP story. It unfolds slowly, like a tulip in the spring - a new symptom appearing with each passing day… constipation on Tuesday, tingling boobs on Wednesday…. Ah, the poetry of it all!

We’d love for you to send – nay, we simply MUST HAVE – your BFP by DPO story, assuming you were detail-oriented (nice euphemism, huh?) enough to record your symptoms on a daily basis.  

So all you BFP by DPO’ers – we want to hear from you! Send us your story, blow by blow, through this contact form.

BFP after 17 months TTC (CP check everyday)

Hi everyone. This page gave me hope every cycle of TTC and I promised to share once I receive mine :) I promise you, for every cycle of 17 months TTC, I have symptoms like sore boobs, bloated abdomen, mild nausea, sore throat, tiredness and vivid dreams. Gave me hope everytime, only to be crushed by arriving AF :( I have since forced myself to accept those "symptoms" as sign of AF. This month, I tried hard not to symptom spot but of course difficult when it becomes a habit to do so for more than a year! So on to the symptoms: 1-3 DPO: hard, low cervix (sign O ended). Glue like cm but only in small amount now and then. Some soreness on side of BB (normal post O) 4 DPO : medium and soft cp. Feels a bit open. Odd. Am I out? Really sore under left armpit. Couldn't even wear a bra to work. Here's hoping! 5DPO: high cp, odd flaky white cm 6 DPO: feels very warm to the touch but not having fever. CP change to medium and pointed. :( 7 DPO - 9 DPO: CP fluctuates everyday! Sometimes its medium, sometimes very low its almost at the "door"!! But never went back high. Os itself remains soft throughout. Was worried abt not getting high cp. 10 DPO - EWCM. Ok. It must be high estrogen thus its AF coming :( very very wet EWCM. Better than O. Haha. CP medium height and medium soft/hard. Basically nothing notable with cp. Slight aches on back tooth. 11 DPO - AF cramps!! :( lower back pain when I wake up. CP normal. Nothing noticeable. Lesser EWCM. More whitish glue but leaves wet patch on undies. Noticed wet patch three times throughout the day. 12 DPO - lower back pain when waking up. White thicker cm with wet patches on undies. Sore BB come and go. Sleepy by 5 but thats not new to me. Hehe. Sorry TMI - loose stool 13 DPO - lower back pain waking up. SUPER LOW CP! barely had to reach up. Feels moist and wet inside cervix but otherwise dry outside. Hungry and ate foot-long subway for brunch. First time ever. More loose stool. 14 DPO - pressure in uterus when waking up. Cant lie on tummy. Had odd dark and soft stool 4 times between morning to afternoon! (TMI sorry! Need to be said!) CP medium high and soft. Skin very warm, fluctuating between 36.9 and 37.0 when I am usually 36.6. Light crampings. Craved steak. Tested in the evening after a game of bowling (worried I overexert myself) and BFP!!! :D I waited so long to see the pink line and had spent a lot of time squinting and turning tests and forcing DH to agree that there IS a line. So surreal to see a prominent pink line :)) Some other things I notice: greasier, heavier hair. Small zits around mouth at 12 DPO. A general feeling of content and happiness. Vivid dreams at 12, 13 DPO. No nausea at all this month when I usually get it before AF in TWW previous months! What I did differently this month: took pregnancy pill right after AF this cycle. No coffee at all. Tried to make sure fertile cm is abundant during BD. Prayed so much for it. Hope this helps someone the way thess BFP stories had helped me through my TWW :) it came as a relief after receiving news that I have a fibroid of 2cm in my womb. All the best everyone :) I pray for BFP for all those trying.

Getting our rainbow

Of course I have been stalking this page for almost 2 years. I finally get to post mine and I am SO excited!!!! We got pregnant back in May of this year (2017) but we lost that baby in July, on my husband's birthday. Since then, I have had 2 IUI's....the 2nd worked. I did not trigger an I did not take any progesterone before or after the IUI. I was on clomid 100mg on CD3-7. We BD'd on CD10, 14, 15, 16. I o'd on CD 15 and did the IUI on the same day *O day- Got the positive OPK in the morning and had the IUI at 4 that afternoon (11.22 (the day before Thanksgiving) cramping after the IUI *3-5DPIUI-My nipples feel like they are going to fall off. THEY HURT!!!! Not the entire breast, just the nipple. I am wondering what's going on because I KNOW it's way too early for pregnancy symptoms. Still cramping but now they are dull and in the background. If I had to guess, I would say they were in my uterus. *6DPIUI-still cramping and my nipples are still sore. Like, I couldn't hug my kids without tremendous in pain. Still crampy. Constipated. *7DPIUI- took my first test...BFN with FRER, walmart first signal and internet cheapie. I'm thinking it's still really early so I didn't really get upset about the negative. My appetite has increased, but that happens as it gets close to my period so i don't think anything of. I am gassier than usual. Nipples still hurt. Still crampy *8-9DPIUI- took a test (internet cheapie)...BFN nipples are still sore but not as bad as it before. This has me worried. I am thinking "If I were pregnant, my symptoms would be increasing, not decreasing." very emotional. Secretly loosing hope but still telling myself that it's still early *10DPIUI- tested with an internet cheapie. BFN. nipples have gone from sore to tender. EXTREMELY emotional. Cried over small stuff, things that i would not normally cry over (example: the dishwasher had not been unloaded). Appetite is still increased. My dog started following me around and being clingy. She would not let me out of her sight *11DPIUI- tender nipples still have those dull cramps in my lower abdomen area. It feels like my uterus. BFN on FRER and internet cheapie. I cried today. Still feeling out this month because I feel like "I should have more symptoms by now" and "the last time, by this time, i had a BFP already" and "it seems like everybody else has gotten their BFP days ago" *12DPIUI- decided not to test. I didn't think that I I could handle seeing another negative. I had a complete breakdown wondering when my time was coming. short tempered and very emotional. My beta was scheduled for today but I cancelled because I didn't want to pay ($40 copay) for my doctor to tell me that I am not pregnant. Just an emotional day *13DPIUI- Decided at the last moment to test...faint positive on the first signal test. Tried FRER using the same sample (FMU)...faint positive. Tested again using SMU on a first signal, darker line. Went to the store and bought 2 boxes of clearblue digitals, 1 box (3 count) FRER, 5 first signal tests. Clearblue gave me those words that I have been waiting SO long to see....PREGNANT. Went in for a blood test to confirm. HCG was at 29. Progesterone as at 24. By my calculations, I am 3 weeks and 5 days today. The doctor says I don't need to be on any progesterone supplement as of now. I go back in on Thursday to make sure my HCG has doubled as it should.

BFP on 12dpo, very few symptoms

Just got my bfp two days ago at 12dpo. I started testing at 8dpo with internet cheapies and at 10dpo with FRERs. Consistent BFNs on everything until 12dpo. Also minimal symptoms. Here is my story day by day! O day: Cramping in general lower belly region, not limited to one side or the other. BD-ing felt crampy too, kind of uncomfortable. 1dpo: crampy and gassy 2dpo: randomly got the hiccups. I know it's prob unrelated but I never get the hiccups so it seemed worth mentioning. 3dpo: very irritable mood all day 4dpo: dry globby cm, kind of nasty. metal taste in mouth on and off, kind of like when you have a nosebleed, but I hadn't had a nosebleed. 5dpo: still abundant globs of white cm. 6dpo: nothing unusual 7dpo: nothing unusual 8dpo: feel like I'm coming down with a cold - scratchy throat. BFN on Clinical Guard cheapie. 9dpo: gastrointestinal issues - horrible gas and cramping. Maybe related to eating beans for lunch? Another BFN on clinical guard. 10dpo: no symptoms at all. BFN on clinical guard and FRER. pretty sure I'm out at this point. 11dpo: no symptoms at all. BFNs everywhere I look. BBT temperature dropped a bit and I'm def feeling out. 12dpo: BBT is up! I decide to take my last FRER and lo and behold a faint but undeniable BFP! Shortly after getting the BFP I began having a crampy/pulling feeling in my pelvis. Not really AF-like cramps - lower and more of a pulling feeling. 13dpo: FRER line darkening, pulling crampy feeling in lower pelvis continues. No other symptoms at all 14dpo: BFP on a digital and line continues to darken. Pelvis cramps continue...they are mild though. The biggest symptom that I did NOT have at any point and still don't have is sore boobs.

BFP CD23 - 11DPO only DTD once

Hi All! I’ve been on this site for over a year now and I’m happy to finally post my BFP journey by DPO. Bit of background info - I’m 29, I have 2 beautiful children (DS12&DD9), I had a cp August 2016 and I was diagnosed with Chronic Migraines, June of this year. I have had constant headaches during the 2WW but haven’t documented them as I wouldn’t know better. This was a surprise and we weren’t proactively trying but if it happens it happens. CD10 - DTD pm, cm - creamy CD11 - EWCM, I can feel my boobs Pm gassy - fuller/bloated feeling, pain when I cough Ovulation Day CD12 - Light cramping, EWCM, ovulation pain left side. BBT 35.7 1DPO - Mid left cramps, bad gas- lower tummy very tight making it hurt when I did a wee wee. backaches. Creamy cm. BBT 36.1 2DPO - ovulation pain left side?! Bad gas with pain. tingly nipples, shooting pain in left breast more than once in afternoon which continued to midnight. pain in left midsection maybe gas related. I need to pee every 1 hour since waking up to lunchtime. body aching. small amount of ewcm not very stretchy, dry cm after 8pm. Hot flushes in the afternoon and noticing I’m thirsty. Craved watermelon? I don’t really like this! Fatigue and nausea. BBT 36.1 3DPO - Left side twinges /pains. Tired. Gassy and bloated with aches. Creamy cm. Heightened sense of smell. My partner can’t seem to do anything right today and into the coming week! So grumpy lol BTW this isn’t me. BBT 36.2 4DPO - light cramps and extreme gas pain. I’m thinking WTH is going on with me?! I have never been like this in my life. My partner offered to swap butts so he could get rid of my gas for me lol so sweet. BBT 36.2 5DPO - Gas aches and pains. Thirsty. BBT 36.5 6DPO - Boobs slightly tender on and off. Very gassy. One sharp cramp this morning and Back aches after breakfast.. I never eat breakfast but I was sick hungry. BBT 36.5 My guess now is this was the day of implantation. 7DPO - Gas pain and food cravings. I wanted a chocolate cake and nothing else haha BBT 36.1 8DPO - very tired. Between not being able to sleep from my headaches to Broken sleep. It’s been and ugly week. Don’t feel the slightest bit pregnant. 9DPO - Sick hungry to loss of appetite. BBT 36.2 10DPO - Thirsty, Sick hungry, Loss of appetite. Watery CM. BBT 36.3 11DPO - Period pain burning, Loss of appetite. So I’m sitting on the couch while my partner is burping and carrying on and I thought to myself, im not the gassy one in the relationship it’s him and maybe it’s a pregnancy symptom? Having multiple pregnancies I haven’t had any of my usual 2WW symptoms. I took a confirm HPT and got a very very faint line. BBT 36.2 12DPO - I find this funny that the moment I take FMU HPT, and get a second faint line that I then get every symptom I normally would. Confirm HPT barely there pink line FRER definitely positive . Sore boobs - bright blue veins. Light headed Nauseous Wanted to vomit after dinner Hot flushes all day Period pain on and off /gas Twinges left side of stomach Poking sensation by belly button left side BBT 36.4 13DPO - BBT 36.5 Sharp stabbing in left ovary region throughout the day. Pulling sensations in uterus? Boobs are really sore. Nauseous / light headed Tired/exhausted Emotional at a wedding ring? (lady taking bloods) it was pretty! Lol Hot flushes Burning / period sensation Gas HPT confirm faint pink positive. FRER BFP Drs appointment also had Blood test today. I’ll post my Beta HCG results for you ladies on Monday. I also recommend not using the Confirm HPT as they not very sensitive. FRER for the win 14DPO - Clear Blue digital not FMU pregnant 1-2weeks, but I already know that only DTD once! Pulling sensations in stomach Sharp shooting sensations left side of abdomin Very sore boobs and sick hungry. Still early days for me but fingers crossed this one sticks. I hope this helps someone :) Baby dust to all

BFP at 10DPO! Symptoms by DPO

I stalked these boards during our time TTC and wanted to add my very well documented symptoms. For the past year, my PMS has gotten worse and seems to have been different each month, thus driving me crazy! I've had one ovary removed and a history of functional, yet painful and large ovarian cysts. The ovary that was removed was due to an emergency surgery from a ruptured and bleeding cyst. I passed out and woke up in the ER from blood loss (thought I had the flu!). Anyway, my PMS symptoms were getting so bad that I just knew I was pregnant every month. I would get dizzy, nausea, sore boobs, headaches/ migraines, weak when standing, peeing a lot, literally everything for two weeks starting right after ovulation. I ended up taking iron which helped with most of those symptoms. Ladies, if you're getting these symptoms every month you may be anemic like me and take a multivitamin and some iron. We began TTC 6 months ago, however my husband had a condition that I had never heard of before. We're both 33. I found out that he was orgasming when we had sex, but not ejaculating. He says he thinks it just came from trying not to get anyone pregnant for so long. It was like a mental hurdle. After months of him getting so frustrated during sex that he couldn't get off at all, we decided to try using a syringe. That didn't work. My guess is that it didn't get far enough in there and that in the process we may have been damaging the sperm. Finally, he was able to ejaculate manually near my vagina which ended up with him basically forcing himself to ejaculate inside me. Like I said, I've had the opposite problem my whole life and thought it was nuts. I guess overthinking and all... who knows. Anyways, the first month that he was able to do it, we got pregnant! 1-4 DPO: No symptoms other than on 3 dpo I had EWCM and was worried that I got ovulation date wrong. Apparently that is caused by an estrogen surge that happens around that time. 5DPO: Light cramps, severe food cravings (specifically white wedding cake), dizziness, extremely tired, peeing more than usual, headache/ migraine, no sex drive. 6DPO: Woke up with acne (I never get acne, just maybe a few pimples during pms), sore boobs, started mixing words up like my brain wasn't working properly, more exhausted, peeing a lot, headaches/ migraine worse, gas and fibromyalgia flared up. Made a note that I was feeling like I might be pregnant, not because of symptoms but just a feeling. Had a 2 minute pinch in uterus area. Was freezing that day, which is odd for me. Sneezing and blowing my nose a lot. 7DPO: Ovary pain, severe backache, insomnia, fibro still flared up (hurt everywhere), boobs still sore, constipated, cramps but not like period cramps. Still craving that cake. Dizzy, Tired, headache and peeing a lot. Nausea, peeing a lot and having hot flashes. I had another 2 minute pinching in the exact same spot of uterus. Temp was up to 99.3. Cried over tv shows 3 times. 8DPO: Cried while watching The Mindy Project, digestive issues and belly feels weird. Still sore boobs, bad sleep, tired, peeing a lot, nausea, hot flashes, no sex drive, and really bad cramps. 9DPO: Very tired. Can't stand for long. Hip and lower back pain severe and shooting down inner thighs. It was so bad I was covered in ice packs and heating pads. Couldn't get comfortable. Heat and ice didn't help the pain. Nearly fell asleep in the store. I had to sit down because I was overheating and dizzy, so I sat in a chair and nearly fell asleep! Mixing up words so bad I feel like I have a brain injury. I would say something like "I love you" and it would come out "I shirt you". It was strange and frustrating! Still peeing a lot, tired and sore boobs.

BFP at 10dpo! Minimal symptoms!

Hi ladies, Given I stalk this site, it’s only fair I pot my own BFP story as well. I ovulated on October 31. We started using preseed about 3 cycles ago and have been unsuccessful. I decided this would be our last month using it and next month we would try without it. Generally I symptom spot like crazy, but this month I felt different. I had decided not to think about that stuff and given I felt that I was out this month I decided to contact my FS to let him know that we will be proceeding with IUI next month. Usually I symptom spot and feel nauseous and I could have sworn a few months ago I felt implantation... but always got a BFN! This month there were only a few different hints. #1 usually my breasts swell up at about 5dpo, this month they didnt! Secondly I normally have a lot of CM post ovulation, it’s generally creamy and can be seen in my underwear. This month I was dry as a bone! No marks in my undies at all. I also found myself drinking a lot of water and green tea from 4 dpo onwards. The night before 10 dpo I had some wackyyyy and Vivid dreams, I woke up on the morning of 10 dpo wondering if I should poas but decided against it. I went to work and while sitting at my desk I realized that my breasts felt huge, as if they grew overnight, and every time my arm hit the side it felt sore... like bruised. This is when I was like ok whooaaa maybe I need to test, but then convinced myself it’s too early. That evening when I got home and was getting dressed to go to a party, I decided to pee on an internet cheapie. After 5 minutes there was nothing so I threw it out. About half an hour later I felt an inkling to look again, and here was a faint line! I grabbed a FRER and forced more pee and within 3 minutes there was a faint line!!! My breasts are still quite big and sore! And the tiredness is just so extreme! Hope this little bugger sticks!!! Good luck and baby dust to you all!

Wicked hot flash after shower. BD then went to bed.

BFP at 11 DPO (2nd baby) -- barely any symptoms this time

I have an 11 month old. Been ttc #2 for 4 cycles. I've never had a normal cycle - it'd come every 2 months or so. I was lucky when I got pregnant last year because it was the first try. But after I stopped breastfeeding at 6 months, my cycles were JACKED UP. Cycles lasted 52 days, then 34 days, then this one is supposed to be 30 days... but now I'm pregnant! First pregnancy I had nausea once, tender boobs, going to the restroom a lot - and these were symptoms BEFORE my BFP. This time, nothing except implantation pinch and spotting. Every pregnancy IS different!! Ovulation: Heavy thick EWCM, brief vaginal soreness / throbbing, 2 BMs in the morning, feel bloated, positive OPK 1 DPO: Medium chunky creamy CM, big blob of thick CM (rubbery) 2 DPO: Heavy creamy CM 3 DPO: Medium watery low stretchiness with whitish creamy chunks CM 4 DPO: Light creamy CM, light uterine pinching 5 DPO: Light creamy / watery CM, 2 BMs in the morning 6 DPO: Light watery CM, almost cramp-like twitches, FELT A QUICK SUDDEN VERY SHARP PINCH at 10:10 pm (suspected implantation) 7 DPO: IMPLANTATION DIP, light creamy CM, sharp pubic pinches 8 DPO: Light watery CM 9 DPO: Pink spotting once when wiping, light creamy CM 10 DPO: Feel warm when woke up in the morning, light creamy CM, 2 BMs, very gassy that night 11 DPO: Felt hot when woke up in the morning, (temp spiked so took an $0.88 Walmart test and it was POSITIVE), 2 BMs in the morning (nervous feeling in the stomach with 2nd BM), feel bloated, very sleepy 12 DPO: Constantly kept waking up in the middle of the night and had to pee, tired and sleepy 13 DPO: kept waking up at night, had to get up and pee, had a nightmare, very hungry 14 DPO: hot at night, insomnia, had a nightmare, OFFICIALLY MISSED PERIOD

BFP at 11 DPO!

I'm a total symptom stalker, so every month of ttc, I KNEW I was pregnant, went through a million tests just to be wrong. This month was different. I KNEW but in a different way than all the other times. O Day: I was at my brother's house, went to the bathroom and noticed I had a TON OF ewcm. DH and I had stopped trying for about 2 months at the point, so I told him "I have never seen this much ewcm before. This is our chance!" We ditched my brother and went home to dtd lol we also used preseed just to help things along. 1dpo: Dtd again, for good luck. No symptoms other than ovulation pain, which I always get the day after. 2dpo: I broke out in zits. I remember telling hubby that I never break out right after ovulation. Only closer to AF. We noted that it was odd. 3dpo: More acne on my face, I was really moody. Hubby made me a drink to help take the edge off lol after one drink I noticed I felt drunk, like as if I had 2 or 3 drinks on an empty stomach. I drank a ton of water and went to bed early, feeling tired. 4dpo: Started to get a runny nose, but nothing else I really noticed. 5dpo: Felt tugging pain behind my belly button. Almost like a dull throbbing that only lasted a few minutes. 6dpo: Felt emotional...angry mostly and got and at DH for nearly everything. 7dpo: started to feel hungry more often. If I didn't eat right when my body told me I needed to, I got huuuge stomach pains. Took a hpt and it was bfn 8dpo: same as 7dpo but didn't test. My female cat became really affectionate and protective over me. She was by my side all day and all night. The last time she is that was when I was pregnant with DD. 9dpo: Really hungry, exhausted, some cramps that were strong enough to make me heel over until they subsided. 10dpo: Hubby left for a 10 day trip. My daughter (14 months) started saying "Baba, Mama!" And pointing at me. She doesn't take a bottle so baba to us means baby, like her dolls usually. At night, in bed, I felt my stomach/womb almost throbbing. It wasn't painful, just really noticeable. 11dpo: I textedy DH telling him about the throbbing I had the night before. He said "Buy a test!" So I packed up the kid and went straight to the store lol Got a FRER 6 days sooner and after the 3 minutes, there was actually a line! No squinting or trying to find the right light! It was there clear as day! Felt emotional all day, cried a ton lol I've had 4 miscarriages before my daughter, and my Dr said I might never have children at all before I had her. So this second baby is really a blessing. I'm still testing every day to make sure that second line stays there. With my previous pregnancies, I never got a line until after my missed period, but this time it was 6 days before AF is due! We're hopeful and feeling so happy!

Bfp at 9dpo

Hey ladies! I've literally stalked this board for years now. Shocked that it's finally my turn- and it's still very early days. I over analysed everything this tww- even actually before I ovulated. So background... I'm 31, my fiancé is 39. We've not really been trying but not preventing, we both said if it happens then we'd be over the moon, but there's no rush. My cycles are normally 28-30 days long. Normally I ovulate mid cycle- so cd14 for 28, cd15 for 30. I track temps and monitor cm. This month I ovulated late on cd19- my temps had been really up and down this month so I think I tried to ovulate before but it never happened so I ovulated late. I will say now- I wasn't sure whether I had ovulated and I started symptom spotting before I had actually ovulated (lol), so ladies, I know it's hard but don't drive yourself mental. So the symptoms- O Day- BD twice- so I know this was the day I conceived- my partner was away for the rest of my fertile window! LOADS of ewcm- was much more than I normally have and extra stretchy. Normally mine is only really watery so this was a curve ball for me. Mild O cramps/pulls/pinches. 1dpo: Woke up with sore throats and headache. Weird. Mild O cramps continued but I was hyper aware of everything at this point. Overwhelmingly tired. Heartburn at night. Temp spiked massively this morning also- which is odd for me, I normally go up for O day and then it's more of a steady climb. NO CM 2dpo: Temp goes up again. Hot flashes at night. Sore throat continues. Still very tired. Stomach cramps a bit stronger- mainly on left side where I ovulated from. 3dpo: Sore throat and runny nose in the morning again. Hot! Cramps are mild but feel like electric rather than af type feelings. Legs ached behind my knees at night so I couldn't get to sleep for a while. Had a dream about having a baby- told my partner and he said I was obsessed at the moment. Maybe I was! 4dpo: Sore throat and runny nose continue in the morning. HUGE temp spike- it's the highest I've ever had since I started temping. No CM in underwear but a little inside. Noticed more after a BM and it was thick and white- I don't normally have this. I'm normally dry straight after O and get more at 6dpo. 5dpo: Minor temp drop of 0.3 degrees. Minor cramps continue. This was weird because I don't normally cramp after ovulation until a couple of days before AF. Headache when I woke up. Ears kept popping- don't know if this was related but I noted it! I was extremely anxious and tearful today. Couldn't stop crying. 6dpo: Temp goes down again but still above coverline LOADS of thick creamy cm- again, I don't normally get this and it was really weird- it kind of held its shape. A bit like jelly but white! There was a lot of it, but not all day, mainly in the morning. My hair was SO GREASY and I'd washed it the previous day. It looked like it hadn't been washed in a week. My skin was also a bit slimy on my face. Another weird one- and I've noticed this one other time when I had a chemical pregnancy so it might be totally unique for me- but my hands peel- like the skin on my fingers peels off like it's sunburnt. It's really bizarre! TMI- I couldn't stop pooping today. I think I went 4 times in 2 hours. Normally im a one or two a day girl. I CRIED ALOT TODAY. And was really anxious. I normally am quite chill till two days before AF. Electric type cramps in the pm and they were low down and in my uterus. Had a couple of stabs near my ovaries but they weren't painful, more an OH! 7dpo: Woke up at 3am and couldn't for the life of me get back to sleep. Temp went back up to the highest it's been (37C) Peeling fingers continue. Thick creamy CM Electric pangs in uterus and ovaries again in the pm for 5 mins. Had pretty intense cramps briefly at night also on both sides. Sharper than AF cramps for me. I was lying on the sofa so I was really aware of every tug. Bad nausea in the PM and was nearly sick. Uterus feels full. 8dpo: Woke up again in the middle of the night but managed to go back to sleep. Temp went up a little again. Mild nausea. Hot flash in the morning. I took my temp out of interest and it beeped that I had a fever. Emotional again- I cried at something on tv and I knew I was being ridiculous. Intense dreams. 9dpo: Woke up in the middle of the night again. Higher temp again. Headache in the morning. Thick CM and had a lot of it. It took me by surprise and I definitely hadn't had it before. In the afternoon I went to the shops and I noticed my nipples felt like they were sunburnt- but when I touch them they are fine. My boobs normally hurt just before my period, but this was early and not the same at all. Aside from that I felt totally fine, maybe a little tired. One spot of blood- and I mean one! Took a pregnancy test at night and a faint line came up. BFP. 10dpo: Took another test, another faint line. But darker. BFP. Nipples still feel like they are sunburnt. Very tired. Very shocked!
