Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Spotting 6 DPO - 9 DPO
This cycle I took Femara 5mg on CD 3 - 7 and had an ultrasound at 12 that showed a maturing follicle. I used Clearblue OPK and am pretty sure I ovulated on CD 16.
On 1 - 5 DPO - NO symptoms
6 DPO - brown spotting once in the evening
7 DPO - few episodes of brown spotting
8 DPO - few episodes of brown spotting
9 DPO - few episodes of brown spotting
Everything I had read about implantation spotting was that it only lasted a few hours so I thought with 4 days that I was for sure out. I also always spot on and off the week before my period so this was nothing out of the norm.
10 DPO - no symptoms, no spotting
11 DPO - no symptoms all day, crazy vivid dream that night about having a baby and going back to work
12 DPO - Woke from crazy dream with sore boobs, BFP! in the afternoon
Since we were doing fertility treatment I had this confirmed with blood test at 13 DPO and another serum hcg at 15 DPO. It's still early and I have to do another blood test next week but trying to just enjoy and stay positive :)
I hope this helps anyone that may be experiencing more than a few days of spotting from losing hope for that cycle.
Good luck everyone!
