Cautiously optimistic

Postby montanarunner » Wed May 18, 2011 2:21 pm

Hi everyone!

I finally got a BFP this morning. This is my 7th pregnancy (I have a two-year-old DD). Here are my symptoms:

1dpo: My temp goes WAAY up, like .7. It's never gone up this high after ovulating.
2-3dpo: feel pulling down by my uterus
4dpo: food aversions start...things just don't...taste...right
7dpo: cervix is at a funny angle. I can feel it slant to the left, and it never does that.
9dpo: cramps from 11am-2pm. It feels like my period is on it's way.
10-13dpo: more cramps, but not as severe as the ones from 9dpo. More food aversions, my perfume smells vinegar-y, I'm tired and cranky and emotional (I cried at one of those "soldier comes home" commercials). LOTS of cm, feels drippy at times. Feeling queasy on and off during the day.

Oh, and the bb's...the BB's. Huge. Sore. Wow.

When I tested this morning (13dpo), the test line was almost as dark as the control line. I'm planning to test Friday, and then on Sunday to make sure I can see a progression.

Since the line is darker, and I'm having so many symptoms already (I'll be 4 weeks this Friday), my DH and I are cautiously optimistic that we'll be able to keep this one. For both of the chemical pregnancies, I didn't have nearly as many symptoms and the line at 12dpo was a squinter.

I started bleeding about an hour ago with uncomfortable cramps. Looks like another chemical.
