Hi! So excited to finally write my post here! A little background, I just turned 29 and my BF is 33. We've been actively trying to conceive since February. On my fourth cycle, I got my first bfp in June. Sadly the pregnancy ended in miscarriage exactly one month later at 8 wks. I never heard or saw a heart beat and we were devastated. But we decided to try as soon as we got the ok to bd again. My cycles didn't exactly go back to normal right away. The first cycle I was getting false positives and light bleeding for two weeks. The 2nd cycle after the mc was painful, very heavy and only lasted a few days. But af always arrived right on time. The 3rd cycle I tried using opks and although I was very fertile, I never got a peak. So finally on my 4th cycle I let go. No tracking, no stress, I decided I was just going to listen to my body and let it happen. Of course I marked the days we bd'd on my phone app and new what days I would likely be fertile. We bd'd every day from cd 5 on except for missing cd 12. On cd 11 I noticed a lot of EWCM, this lasted for 4 days! And I've only ever noticed this type of cm with my first pg. I believe I O'd on cd 14 which was the last day with ewcm. I had such a positive feeling this month that I even told BF, "I think we made our baby last night" lol! Here's what I got:
1dpo: OV pains
2dpo-5dpo: Not much but a definite difference in breast tenderness. Mostly nipples sensitive. This was my first clue, as I haven't noticed any change with bbs since the mc.
6dpo: Slightly tender breasts (sides & nips), having vivid dreams, waking in the night, peeing more frequent
Metallic taste at dinner. This was the odd one, I had shrimp and it tasted like I put a handful of dirty nickels in mouth. Yuck
7dpo: Slightly tender bbs only in the morning.
8dpo: Slightly tender breast, mild cramps in pelvic area, cm creamy but feels much drier than normal around this time in cycle. Almost like wet toilet paper?
9po: Sore bbs in morning, vivid dreams, slight aversion to ground beef. (Side note, my favorite food is cheeseburgers. With my last pg I couldn't eat em at all)
Trouble breathing (I have asthma and my symptoms worsened last pg)
10dpo: Sore bbs, very vivid weird dreams, tested on $ store Hpt with fmu- faintest hint of line??! I'm straining my eyes but feel very positive something is there.
Peeing a lot now
11dpo: Woke up 4:30 am, tested w/ $ store hpt, BFP! Faint pos but definitely there and with timeframe, sore bbs, backache, mild pelvic pain, frequent urination
12dpo: Confirm BFP with clear blue digital! "Pregnant"
I'm 4 wks/2 days now :)
-bbs continue to be very sore, especially in the am and after taking off my bra at night, heartburn with almost everything I eat, which is a lot bc I can't seem to satisfy this weird hunger! Lol, mouth is very dry in the am, peeing like 25 times a day, mild cramps and back ache, weirdest dreams of my life, mood swings and sooo emotional and bouts of weep. And Gassy lol to point I'm embarrassed my bf has to sleep in the same bed. No nausea! Yay! (I might have just jinxed myself) lol but last pg it started at exactly 6 wks.
Thank God for this blessing! For giving us a second chance. I'm praying for my sticky bean and I hope you will too. I know your time will come soon like it did for me. FX and lots of love to you ttc <3
