BFP First cycle!!

Postby blue.daisy » Tue May 17, 2016 3:11 am

Hiya,
I'm thrilled to have got a BFP. I thought I'd share my symptoms from ovulation to BFP for anyone it may help :-) I'll try and be as detailed as possible! Obviously some may be completely irrelevant but I'll just list everything I noted :)

I used pipettes and after 5 minutes of donor doing his thing.

2DPO: CF basically none. No symptoms, feeling same as normal.

3DPO: Sore nipples. Left pelvic pain, very niggly. CF sticky/school glue.

4DPO: pain in left side, same place as yesterday, just a niggly pinching type pain, probably too early for implantation. Shooting pains in vagina, like nerve shooting pain (sorry tmi, but OW!). CF clear/liquid. Feeling bloated/constipated. Some mild cramps.

5DPO: niggling pain in left side, on and off, all morning – lower than yesterday but same feeling - like I'm being pinched from the inside. Feeling bloated. Nipples no longer sore just sensitive. Cervix high and soft. CF lotion. Blood pressure feels a little low but don’t know for certain. Increased appetite but I am revising for exams so it could just be boredom :-P

6DPO: metallic taste in mouth (really gross). Niggling pain in left has completely stopped. This morning I had two mouthfuls of porridge (my normal breakfast) but felt weird so stopped. 5 minutes later strong wave of nausea, thought I would actually throw up. I don't feel ill at all just that wave of nausea. Mild headache on and off, cervix high, medium-hard and wet. Right boob has increased in size (sorry if tmi) so I'm feeling a bit wonky ;) haha. Sciatica pain down left leg which isn't fun :(

7DPO: Felt pretty normal. Very very mild nausea. But smell of garlic chicken when I opened fridge had me gagging. Pain in left side again and the sense of being 'pulled' in my left, very odd. Like a pulled muscle but not quite. Some mild chest pains. Extremely tired and in bed by 7pm. Headache.

8DPO: pain in left side woke me up but has since disappeared. Digestive system keeping me bloated and constipated (for days now!) More CF than usual. Chest pains again. No nausea at all. Slightly ick taste in mouth. Headache. Very very tired.

9DPO: less CF. Areola on boobs huge now and slightly pinker/darker. Veins appearing on boobs all over the place. On and off niggling pains in low centre abdomen. Extremely tired, had afternoon nap and early night. Very vivid dreams (been having vivid dreams all week).

10DPO: my pee *stinks*! Which was slightly alarming. Worried about possible uti but no other symptoms. Headache on and off. No nausea, bit tired but better than I had been. Areola not as dark as it was yesterday. Thinking I'm out...

11DPO: Pee not as strongly smelling. Areola bumpy and still huge. Boobs more veiny. But very period like cramps throughout day, and very bloated (which I usually get just before AF). Feeling grumpy and miserable as convinced AF coming anytime now. Back pain and heaviness in abdomen with cramping. Out when suddenly felt *wet*, convinced period just started so I dashed to loo. Not period at all. Just LOADS of icky CF (sorry tmi but wow). Loads. Very white and thick, gloopy, and just tons of it. Cramps continued all evening and I kept dashing to loo expecting period but finding more gloopy mess.

12DPO: Much drier. Pee normal again but going more often. Boobs feeling heavy, feeling so bloated my partner says I even look pregnant just from sheer bloatedness. AF like cramps all day and lower backache. No nausea or fatigue whatsoever.

13DPO: Cramps woke me up, went to loo at 5am expecting AF but still not there. Felt weird so at 7am I did a test. FAINT BFP!!!! Completely stunned as with the cramps I was so sure I was out. Test so faint I wonder if I'm seeing things but partner can see it too. Cramps faded during the day but returned at evening, but strange, felt like I was being pulled! and only felt better if I lay on my back. Nothing like as bloated thought.

14DPO (today): Did another test just to be sure - much much stronger and very clearly BFP! Cried a bit xD not really any cramps, just the odd twinge, but lower back aches like hell. No nausea but feeling tired and woozy somehow. CF lotiony but not loads of it. It has been lotiony throughout even on the drier days. Boobs seem to have ballooned over night and my right one is particularly big. Areola still big.

I should also say my throat has been very slightly sore for over a week, but I had put this down to hay fever.
Hoping this one sticks!!
Good luck everyone!!
