Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP @ 8dpo
Like everyone says; I cannot believe after reading story after story, that I would be here.
I have a (almost) 5 year old little girl from a previous relationship. I am now 23 almost 24. Pregnant with #2.
Unfortunately I am going to be a single mom to two... I am nonetheless excited, scared and so nervous!
After I had my daughter and when I eventually stopped breast feeding her (19 months!) I tracked my cycles through a handy dandy app..
I average a 28/30day cycle. I typically ovulate on CD15/16
ODpo: DTD, felt crampy after wards, had ewcm that night.. Nothing out of the unordinary.
1Dpo: still cramping, mainly from right side. Creamy cm.
2dpo: my goodness my bbs hurt, I noticed my nipples were hella erect. Never experienced that before. Crampy.
3dpo: had a emotional fit over xmas. Weird dream, cramps and just bleh. Creamy cm.
4dpo: tingly bbs, cramps. Just had a "feeling" my bbt was still high 98.3 my bbs felt "hot", my heart beat seemed to be fast too. Idk how to explain it but it felt like it was beating a lot faster than before. Weird dreams. Chapped lips. Gassy. Clear watery cm. CP high and soft.
5dpo: forgetful. Tired. Moody. Kind of blah. Then around 6pm i had the most period like cramps and my bbs were throbbing, mainly on the sides. I literally thought AF was going to burst through the flood gates. Bought three pregnancy tests.
6dpo: absurdly tested. Bfn. Duh. Less crampy more twingy. Tired. Blah. Clear watery Cm.
7dpo. Woke up craving broccoli! I needed raw broccoli and lots of it. Crampy (I was mainly cramping at night time. I noticed when I went to lay down. To go to bed.) Weird dreams. Clear watery cm. irritated. Slight heart burn. My toddler is driving me nnnnuts! So touchy and loving (bless her heart) my skin felt so dry and itchy I was going bonkers itching my head my legs, my arms.
8dpo: I just knew.....dun dun dun. Yes I just couldn't help myself but go into dollar tree buy some tests and start testing. BFP. Faint but it's super there. Bought three more at Walmart after that.
FRER 6 days sooner. faint positive and took less than a minute maybe two to show..
Going to keep testing until AF was due. I'm in disbelief. But God blessed me for a reason and I should embrace it.
