I am so excited to share that I am pregnant! This is our first month TTC and we only did the BD one time during fertile period which was the day before O. Here's my story and symptoms. I didn't chart ovulation or use OPK's. I simply used a calendar that based my O off of my cycle. However, I do have a regular cycle, so perhaps that's why it was so easy.
day prior to O: had sex
1DPO:Gums bleeding while brushing
3DPO: small amount of red blood when wiping
4DPO:Very gassy, stomach cramps/twinges, weird hunger pains, mild nausea, slight CM
5DPO:Only ate 1/2 of breakfast, wasnt feeling hungry and got a bit nauseated while eating. Cramps on both sides (mainly left), getting sick with flu-like symptoms, very bad headache, slight CM
6DPO:Heavier CM, low back pain, vaginal "bubble" type feeling but nothing ever came out
7DPO: Gums bleeding when brushing, Stabbing pain in breasts, breasts feel swollen, EXTREME veins on chest and nipples
8DPO: Tested negative: Didnt sleep well, kept dreaming about my basal temp, boobs feel more swollen and slightly tender, low back pain, slight CM, veins dont seem as prominate as yesterday. Very emotional, cried over two songs. Heart is POUNDING when i lay down, short of breath just going across the living room, belching a lot, inside vagine felt extremely tight.
9DPO: Tested negative: Didnt sleep well again, had a dream about having twins at home, peeing more frequently (is that possible this early?!)slightly nauseated, heavy boobs, vaginal "bubble" feeling again, veins are now leading into my nipples.
10DPO: Neagtive blood test: Veins very prominant, areoles seem a lot bigger/not darker though, short of breath in the morning, breasts are getting more and more tender, low back pain, mild cramps on left side of abdomen, blood test done at drs office with HCG of less than 1, pulling/stabbing sensation beneath/behind boobs, vaginal "bubble" thing again.
11DPO: Didnt sleep well, feel discouraged yet I feel like I should be happy, dropped a few pounds when I weighed, not much of an appetite, short of breath, crying a lot.
12DPO:Headachish, VERY sore boobs and large areoles, bra uncomfortable, out of enregy/drained!
13DPO:Dreamt I had a BFP! Woke up to disappointment of a negative. Still HUGE blue veins all over chest and now also leading up to my neck. Really bad cramps(almost like I need to poop but cant..sorry if TMI) very irritable and emotional, even a bit angry.
14DPO: Expected date for period, no sign of AF. sticky/watery CM, still obsessing thinking I am pregnant and the blood test had to have been too early. Pulling feeling in the right upper abdominal area, tested negative again.
15DPO: Tested negative on HPT but something told me to go in and do another blood test anyway. 1 day late for AF, veins seem even bigger now!! white/yellowish sticky CM, had another blood test done at drs office. Crampy, gassy, stabbing/pulling feeling in breasts, heart beating super hard.
16DPO: 2 days late for AF. Tested negative on HPT(the dip in pee sticks. FYI:DONT USE THEM!!!!!) Feeling discouraged and wondering how it can be negative when I KNOW I'm pregnant?! Anxiously awaiting call from dr for results, cramps on both sides near pelvis. Received call from drs office confirming I am indeed pregnant!! HCG level of 31! I had to see it for myself so I POAS (FRER) and got a BFP!
