Me: 32yr- hx of prolactinemia, on Bromocriptine 2.5mg twice daily since June 2014 (microadenoma on pituitary gland)one dd with DH- Madelyn Jaymes 7/2011
DD: 41y/o. Three children from previous relationship
I got my BFP on Thursday and I still can't believe it. When we decided to try again I thought it would take awhile as it took 18 months for me to get pregnant with dd. This is only our second month of trying. It still doesn't seem real. I prayed for another baby and left the whole situation in god's hands. He has once again answered my prayer. I am beyond grateful! I have been charting my cycles with BBT's, OPK, CM, and CP for nearly a year. We used Pre-seed and Softcups this cycle. Here is the breakdown by DPO:
I ovulated later than normal this month mysteriously ;)
Pos opk on 8 March and 9 March
Ovulation day- 9 March (my o-pains are no joke)!
1 DPO (10 Mar): temp drop confirms ovulation (97.7). Just some mild cramps
2 DPO: slight pressure sensation and twinges in lower abdomen, sore breasts-not out of the ordinary after ovulation
3 DPO: sore breasts
4 DPO: mild cramping
5 DPO: sore breasts
6 DPO: intermittent small sharp pains in lower abdomen
7 DPO: sore breasts
8 DPO: weird tingling sensation in left jaw, light lower abdominal pain while stretching
9 DPO: small pinching/soreness and intermittent left lower abdominal pain, sore breasts, mild cramping, feeling worn out while doing Zumba-(I thought I was dehydrated)!
10 DPO: cramping, sore breasts
11 DPO: slight nausea, cramping, felt tired even after I woke up
12 DPO: nauseated after eating, tired-slept through about 1/4 of my shift, mild cramping, itchy in random areas-legs and arms w/o provocation, felt light headed at one point
13 DPO: cramping, backache, some indigestion, and nausea. Feels like my period is revving up for a restart
14 DPO: TMI-mild cramping after orgasm
15 DPO: Feels like period is coming-my normal "burning" cramping sensation that accompanies my period, alternating left and right sided pains in lower abdomen, "fluttering" sensation
16 DPO: cramping, nausea, backache, suddenly got a stuffy nose, mild pain on right side of abdomen, mild cramping after orgasm, itchy throat w/cough, my urine smells weird. I really wanted to test on this day as it is the last day of the longest luteal phase I've ever gone, but I wanted to give it one more day to round it out for as long as a LP should last.
17 DPO: pain in left lower abdomen, dry chapped lips, itchy throat w/cough; expecting my period to start, but I feel none of the signs. I have no pregnancy tests at home, but I do have plenty of ovulation tests and these did turn positive with my last pregnancy so I give it a try-take the test, do my hair, dance with my daughter and come back 10 min later to a smiley face :)! I have no doubt that I'm pregnant then. I pee in a cup at work and send it off to the lab. It results less than 15 min later-BFP!!
I'm in the early days yet and am praying it sticks. I feel absolutely fine and hope I get through this pregnancy relatively unscathed like it did my last one. I hope my symptom list was helpful to some. Although I don't have nearly as many symptoms as some I've read. Good luck everyone!
