I took my last BC pill in October 2014 while on our honeymoon after being on it for 4+ years and not having a period at all. It took about six months for my cycle to return to somewhat normal. My last cycle was 40 days. To my surprise, I got a +OPK ten days earlier than expected 5/28/15. Here are the symptoms I noted.
5/27/15: BD out of pure love (not something that happens often as we stressed ourselves out TTC every month at the first sign of +OPK). I was also very thirsty as I normally get around O time, insomnia.
5/28/15: +OPK, BD with Preseed, thirsty, cramps in the morning, insomnia, "bubbly" feeling stomach.
5/29/15: Insomnia, "bubbly" feeling in stomach, food cravings, slight nipple soreness, ovulation pain around 5PM, BD with Preseed
5/30/15, 1DPO: Finally got some good sleep at night, food cravings (normal for me around O), increased hunger, woozy, slight headache, nipple tenderness, increased thirst, moody
5/31/15, 2DPO: First night of very vivid dreams, increased thirst, increased hunger, moody, increasingly sore nipples, emotional in AM about dream of my mom's 14 year old dog dying, cried on the way to get my morning coffee just thinking about it.
6/1/15, 3DPO: Headache in AM, stuffy feeling "mucus in head", hungry upon waking (I'm normally not hungry until a few hours after being up), hungry all day, tired, headache, increased urination, went to sleep after work on the couch and slept from 7:30PM-11PM, nipples slightly sore, high sense of smell
6/2/15, 4DPO: Extremely vivid dreams, ~13 hours of sleep straight, head congestion, ready for a nap again at 1pm despite sleeping in until 11am, headache, moody, sad/depressed but unusually calm (I'm normally a person of very high stress. This calm has stayed with me until BFP), nipples barely sore, "fuzzy headed" like hungover
6/3/15, 5DPO: Gassy at 12:47am, slight tugs in lower uterus, did not sleep well, vivid dreams when I was finally able to get to sleep, first BM in four days, feeling out, left side pinch/twinges that almost feel like UTI, emotional, DH made a comment that BB's are bigger (this is what first made me think "hm, maybe" because it always seems to be when the DH makes a comment that ladies get BFP), sore nipples in PM
6/4/15, 6DPO: Vivid dreams, pangs and twinges around left ovary (side I O'd from), sciatic pain briefly while laying on the couch around 8PM, fell asleep at 8:30PM woke back up and couldn't sleep, irritable in early day (argued with DH), creamy CM that had a strange "sweet" smell, cervix soft, felt a weird sharp pain in my teeth?
6/5/15, 7DPO: vivid dreams, sore bb's throughout day, less creamy cm, not much noted until mild cramps in PM, short nap from 5-5:30PM (I have always been a nap taker but never this short without waking up grumpy and still wanting sleep), slight sore throat, smelly gas
6/6/15, 8DPO: DH and I went to our niece's birthday party at an outdoor park and Florida heat made me nauseous, picking up a 2 year old also put strain on abdomen so I couldn't hold her for long, my DH opened a bag of sour cream & onion chips a few steps away from me and I had to walk away they smelled so bad, bloated, sore BB's that seem bigger than normal, weird dreams, craving for soda, less appetite, small acne bumps on chest/face, deep pimple forming on chin, DH had open bag of trail mix in car and it had an unusually strong smell
6/7/15, 9DPO: started to experience slight nausea
6/8/15, 10DPO: Went out for lunch with my best friend and ate a whole triple decker BLT that DH and I usually split, that's when I thought something might be up. Metallic taste that seemed to come from gums when I tried to run air through the cracks in my teeth to clean out, tasted like blood. Came home to nap for a few hours, woke up to some cramps, thought AF was on her way so I figured I'd test just for the heck of it, very faint line on Wondfo HCG, I wasn't sure if it was my line eye again but something told me not to pour out cup of urine just yet while waiting for line, decided to dip in FRER and before I knew it I had a BFP, no squinting or anything :)
A few things that were different for me this TWW compared to normal- the soft cervix that also felt low, unusual amount of creamy CM, feeling of UTI that radiated to what felt like inside my vagina.
We are ecstatic! This is my first pregnancy and I feel like this is all I've been waiting for my whole life. Praying for a sticky bean. I feel very nervous but I'm trying to hide that from DH and continuously speaking life into my womb.
