Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Proved the doctors wrong!
Hi All. I conceived my little belly bean exactly 4 weeks ago today (17th Jan- I'm now technically 6 weeks pregnant), and what a surprise that was. I have very badly polycystic ovaries and had only had a period once every few months for the last 2-3 years, the doctors advised me about 18 months ago that I would probably find it difficult conceiving naturally and that it potentially wouldn't ever happen for me. Anyways January was the first month we had tried... I got a positive OPK on 17th Jan and it was first time lucky, so ner ner doctors! :)
1dpo - Sore boobs started straight away and has got progressively worse every day- it was like hormonal AF boob pain at first but then within 2-3 days became that agonising I couldn't lay on my front or cuddle my other half. I knew I was pregnant from this alone!
3dpo- Felt extremely frisky?!
7dpo- Very bad back ache
8dpo- Extremely emotional and angry fir no reason, bloated, craving ALL the bad foods
9dpo- Absolutely exhausted. Tried a cheap ebay dip pregnancy test knowing it was too early- BFN
10dpo- Other half took me away for a dirty weekend which was ruined by my constant napping- very unlike me and we both knew at this point something was different! I had never felt so tired in my life- this fatigue has also carried on since this point!
11dpo- Cheap dip pregnancy test BFN. We were both a little sad.
12dpo- I just knew I was pregnant. I did tests in the morning and evening and they were negative. I got in the shower after the second test then looked at it again once i'd got out.. there was a very very faint line (almost nothing at all), so I checked others in the bin- they had them too! I convinced myself they were evap lines and me and OH went and bought some better tests. The lines on both these tests were much stronger but still very faint (see pic included)... I sent OH to the shop again for a 5 day early test Clear Blue test. I did that at 4am after waking in the middle of the night and it said not pregnant.
13dpo- I was a little sad all day about the negative result, but still hopeful. I bought a "how many days" test and a standard ClearBlue test. I did the clear blue on my lunch at work and the blue line was there! Pregnant!
14dpo- I did the Clear Blue how many days test in the morning and it said 1-2 weeks pregnant :)
Since finding out for sure the main side effects up to 6 weeks pregnant have been tiredness, cramping, extremely emotional and EXCRUITATING BREASTS. Baby dust to all xxx :)
