Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP @ 10 DPO, Cycle after Chemical
I've been debating on whether to post my story but decided it might help someone out. I am 9w4d pregnant. I had my first u/s at 8w1d and saw my healthy bean with a strong heartbeat!
My BFP came the cycle following a chemical pregnancy. The chemical caused me to ovulate about a week late. Speaking of ovulation, I used the clear blue advanced digital ovulation test along with internet cheapies to confirm ovulation. I did not temp.
1-5 DPO - Nothing to report. Completely normal.
6 DPO - For about an hour I had cramps that felt similar to period cramps (maybe implantation day??)
7 - 8 DPO - Nothing to report. Completely normal.
9 DPO - Told DH I was positive I was not pregnant because I felt so normal. I tried to have a glass of sangria with my dinner and couldn't drink it. It tasted disgusting.
10 DPO - Decided I would take a test with FMU just to see. I'm a POAS addict. Faint line came up on internet cheapie and I thought I was just seeing things. Decided to try a FRER using the same urine sample and the faint line came up immediately. I seriously couldn't believe it.
I was super paranoid since I had a chemical the cycle before so I kept testing every morning just to make sure my lines got darker. I was beating the control line on FRER by 14 DPO.
So there you have it... I got my BFP (first pregnancy) with basically no symptoms. And still today at 9 weeks, I have very few symptoms. :)
Good luck out there ladies. My best advice is to use OPK's!
