Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Natural BFP after 16 months!
This is my second time posting here, the first one was a chemical. After a second chemical and a few months later, here I am again!
I hope this may help people with long and irregular cycles: I've had cycles ranging from 29 to 61 days, completely unpredictable, a few anovulatory.
Vitex Agnus Castus made them 32-34 days long and regular! It did not work that well until I took the right dose, I needed 1000mg twice per day. I am not suggesting it's the right dose for everyone, but if Vitex's kinda working for you but not quite, then it may be a good idea to up the dose.
Main symptom was light cramps from 7dpo onwards. I had it with my chemical pregnancy too, but it lasted a lot longer this time. Also, very dry after ovulation which is unusual for me.
1-6 dpo - Sore boobs, but I always get them after ov, so not a symptom
7 dpo - Light cramps, different than AF cramps and very similar to the ones I had with my chemical.
8 dpo - Cramps, mild nausea (not sure if it was pregnancy related)
9/10 dpo - Cramps, stark white BFN, feeling low
11 dpo - An invisible line on a cheapie, tested with a FRER and the faintest line appeared! BFP
12 dpo - Fearing another chemical, IC BFN, FRER super faint line, clear BFP on a 20mUI test
13 dpo - Finally a good line on a FRER, digi says 1-2 weeks pregnant! Starting to believe it now.
As a side note, expensive test claiming to have high sensitivity are really not that reliable. I got a very good line on a 20mUI test, unknown brand, while 12.5mUI FRER was almost invisible and the 10mUI IC was stark white!
Hope this one sticks and good luck to everyone!
