BFP at 13 dpo all naturally
I am 30. This is our 9th month TTC #1 all naturally. Reading through other women's symptoms on this site has really really helped me through my TWW and most of my nine months TTC. Each month I obsessed over everyone else's symptoms, hoping I would have some. It's FINALLY my turn to share. Hope this helps someone else. Here are my symptoms.
2dpo BD creamy cm
3dpo Creamy cm
4 - 6dpo == No cm feels very dry. Moody and depressed on and off and crying for no apparent reason. Hungry. Just after finishing breakfast/lunch/dinner wanted to eat again. Hmmm.
7dpo == Odd pinches in uterus in the late evening, lasted about 2 hours on and off. bloated. could not zip up pants. Feeling very agitated. Unable to explain restlessness.
8dpo == BBs feel very dry and itchy. Legs hurt, feel heavy and painful.
9dpo == BBs start to pain today, not the nipples, the sides between the underarm and the areas around the nipple. Odd! Not usual for me. They don't seem any bigger or different than when AF comes. Watery cm not much though. Notice blue veins on BBs and chest. Little cm still watery. Legs still achy.
10dpo == BBs hurting more now, moody, crying, constipated and really bad gassy. CM now creamy, peeing more often, notice its darker than usual .. odd since I drink a lot of water. Woke up sometime in the middle of the night with pins and needles in my left arm :(, that usually happens before AF. Legs not as achy anymore.
11dpo == Same - BBs hurt, moody and depressed and still constipated and gassy
12dpo == Finally BM, feeling relived in the stomach. BBs still hurt. Feel some AF types pains not as severe though. Go away after an hour. Mood pretty okay but really very tired by the evening, can't keep my eyes open. Unusual as internally mind seems active, but physically can't keep eyes open.
13dpo == Had decided not to test until day of missed AF. AF due tomorrow. By mid-afternoon am really restless, decide to give in and test with the very last hpt (first response) I have at home. Did not have the courage to walk in after 3-4 minutes to look at the test. Was sure it would be a let down like all those previous months, Finally decide to walk into the bathroom ... the test has two dark lines!! Can't believe it, go back and look at the instructions, it is a BFP!!!! and it was not even the FMU. Double check with images from this site of others' BFPs to make sure. Yeah Yeah! It is a BFP. Call DH at work while crying, he thinks this month is also a goner as I am crying so hard, I had to repeat it to him 2 times that the test is positive before he realized what I was saying.
14dpo == Wake up at 2am am fully awake, can smell the air in the room! can't go back to sleep the smell is so strong! lots of EWCM. Sinking in slowly now that we are pregnant :) . Starting to have lower back pain, BBs still hurt, but I can take all of this pain now :) Its okay ! Praying that this is a sticky bean.
No nausea, no headaches, not too much tiredness yet.
What I did different this cycle.
- drank a lot of warm water in between meals (6 - 7, 16 oz glasses/day)
- practiced visualizing everyday from O day that sperm enters my uterus, does the bd with the egg, fertilizes it and attaches to the uterine wall.
- prayed and prayed and prayed
All I have to say is that God is GREAT! My journey has had its ups and downs like so many other women. The longing to have a baby has been there for 2 years now, although we have been TTC only 9 months officially. Looking back for every month that we didn't conceive now I feel that much more thankful and happy for the divine blessing. It we hadn't gone through it, the value of this BFP might not have been what it is today. I am humbled by God's magical ways. Its probably just Gods way of doing his miracles.
Baby dust to all!!!
