Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP today!! 13DPO
Well i've spent the past few months trawling through the many blogs and posts on these websites, constantly symptom spotting and just feeling incredibly down and out every time AF reared her ugly head. However, this morning i got my first BFP and thought i would share my story on here as so many others have kindly done so and kept my sanity!!
My husband and I have been 'not preventing' since August but i would say officially TTC since October when i started using OPKs. I have also been using the Ovia fertility app to track my cycle and symptoms. Surprisingly, i would say this month was the one with the least amount of symptoms however, this could have also been due to it being over the Xmas and New Year period so my mind was busy and occupied rather than looking for every single little thing! The symptoms i had were as follows;
1 DPO: OPK turned negative.
2 DPO: None to report
3DPO: Felt constipated today and suddenly had a flare up of acne on my chin.
4DPO: Still constipated - not completely unusual at this point in my cycle though. Acne still visible (those painful under the skin types!) and tender breasts - now this was unusual this early within the TWW. My bbs have always started to feel sore about 7DPO previously but this time they were killing me and seemed massive!
5DPO: Same as 4DPO
6DPO: Tender breasts still
7DPO: same as 6DPO
8DPO: Still just sore bbs
9DPO: Still sore boobs - took HPT = BFN
10DPO: I am starving today! Seriously cannot stop eating. Bbs still hurting!
11DPO: Sore bbs (think i'm getting used to it now!) Lower back started throbbing when i got into bed. Had a bit of a runny nose today and also seemed to have a bit of a 'chapped' bit under my nose too?
12DPO: Dull lower back ache on and off today. Sore bbs. *TMI ALERT* - quite a bit of diarrhea throughout the day. Pinching and pulling sensation in uterus area. skeptical of this though because i am due on in 2 days but it just feels a little different. Had a very short 'dizzy' spell while sat watching TV.
13 DPO: Tested this morning. First with a cheapie One Step HPT - saw a very faint line which i was convincing myself was all in my head. After looking at the test in every different light within the house, decided to bite the bullet and do a CB test - BFP!!!
So the only thing that was really 'odd' for me was when my bbs started hurting. Apart from that, i have definitely had smilar symptoms to all the rest within the TWW before! I am so so hopeful that this little bean sticks and everything goes ok! but absolutely over the moon to have had a BFP!!
Keep the faith! It will happen!
