Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP After 9 Months With Irregular Cycles and Spotting
This website has given me hope over the last few months and I hope my story does the same for someone. I got off BC in May 2011, and it was very unpleasant to say the least. I gained 12 pounds in 2 months (I always watch what I eat and exercise 4x a week), my hair started falling out, my skin went from normal to extremely oily and acne prone. And lastly my cycles ranged from 43 - 63 days and I would usually spot for a few days before my period even started. My hair and skin calmed down after about 6 months but my cycles never returned to normal. This cycle I O'ed on day 31.
28 - BD
29 - BD +OPK
30 - BD +OPK
31 - BD O Day
32 - BD
2-4DPO I got a horrible cold out of nowhere.
5 DPO - Cold is miraculously gone! Very strange!
6 DPO - The spotting starts :( I even wiped and had BRIGHT red blood, I put a tampon in and later took it out and there was only a tiny spot of blood. I cried, I was sure I was out this month I thought this was my normal cycle where the spotting comes a week early. Nips are sore but completely normal also.
7-13 DPO - Brown spotting continues mostly when I wipe, nips still sore.
14 DPO- I decided to take a test since I had one left, I told myself that I was 95% sure I was not pregnant so the disappointment would not be as bad. I was in complete SHOCK when I looked down and saw PREGNANT! I am still in shock!
Some of the things I was doing was pre-seed, only on +OPK days, Chaste tree (Vitex), B complex, and I also saw an acupuncturist who specialized in women's fertility to try to make my cycles shorter and regulate my hormones. I really had no symptoms except for the 3 day cold that disappeared. Don't give up hope and try to remain positive even though I know it's every tough at times.
