My fiance and I weren't really trying, he and I have been together for 3 years and are not living together yet. I have been on the BC pill (Yasmin) for 11 years and came off at the direction of my doctor because it was starting to make me lactate for several months before I came off it. I've only had two periods since the 4 months I've been off the pill and this is my first pregancy.
I have been feeling pregnancy symptoms ever since the lactation began so I have become a closet POAS addict lol.
Based on my last period I'm thinking I O'd quite early in my cycle, since I wasn't tracking here are my estimated DPO's
DPO 1 BD'd
DPO 2 - 3 very weepy, nothing else
DPO 4 still weepy, bbs began to feel tender to the touch, cramps and aches on the left side and back (in hindsight, thinking implantation even though it's early)
DPO 5 vivid dream about having twins, heavy dark brown spotting in the AM which stopped by the afternoon, bbs still tender
DPO 6 BFN on dollar tree cheapie, bbs more tender, slight increase in sense of smell, started hunger pangs, teeth sensitive, vivid dreams, bad acid reflux (which I never get) that caused acid to come all the way up twice (sorry TMI), backache, headache
DPO 7 slightest BFaintP's on DT cheapies, both mid morning, sore bbs, more hightened sense of smell, hunger pangs throughout the day, bubbley feeling in my abdomen just below my navel, starting to see veins on my chest, very thirsty which is unlike me, backaches, headache...starting to salivate heavily, almost as if I'm about to vomit (has anyone else had 'drooling'?)
DPO 8 slightly darker BPF on another DT cheapie FMU, but definitely there...continuing hunger, thirst, soreness in bbs, lower back pains, hightened smell, heavy saliva, started becoming very tired like wanting to nap after an hour of waking, mild headaches
DPO 9 (today) obvious light pink BFP on a cheapie FMU, sore bbs, thirst, beginning to pee a lot, some cramps, heavy saliva, hunger and exhaustion have subsided (I think due to my excitment, it's beginning to feel real), BFN in digi EPT, will try again with tomorrow's FMU.
Some differences between previous (mock pregnancy symptom) months and this month for me:
Thought I was peeing a lot (like 7-8 times/day), this month it is literally about 1-2 times per hour
Bbs remained only tender once they started hurting, now I feel outright sore
Sense of smell began to increase a little in previous months, but now I can identify multiple specific smells coming from the next room that don't normally smell
Always felt some nausea....I don't feel that at all yet this time
Also, I've personally had better luck getting my BFP's on dollar tree HPT's than on Dollar General HPT's...not sure if the sensitivity is different or not but twice I've had my BFP on DT and nothing on DG.
We are very very blessed to have this happen to us, even though circumstances could be better (maternity wedding dress, anyone?) we really couldn't be happier to be able to start our family this soon.
Best wishes and loads of baby dust to you all!!! I can't wait to read your BFP stories!
