Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
1 year ttc (almost to the day!)
I'm so happy and excited to be here finally able to share my story. On June 12th last year my husband and I decided to start trying for a baby. We BD a couple of times and I was sure I was pregnant....then came the reality. Coming off the pill after 10 years I had forgotten my periods used to be non-existent. My hormones were no longer regulated and they were all over the place - I was all over the place.
It has been such a tough year, I've had to wake up and take responsibility for my own body. My diet has done a 360' I no longer smoke and I exercise daily....the weight dropped off and this month my BFP finally happened!
By DPO is my favourite sort of story so here goes:
CD33 I ovulated
DPO1 no EWCM today, after 8 continuous days.! BBT also raised, and mood dipped slightly so figured I had finally ovulated
DPO2-5 really bad periodic cramping and gas along with - TMI alert - snot like CM. Slightly anxious and paranoid (hormones)
DPO6 boobs start to get sore and I worry I'm out, isn't it too early for sore boobs?! But feeling very happy & balanced
DPO8 more snot like CM and cramping in the night (hoping it's a good sign!)
DPO9-10 Mega thirsty. More yellowy discharge with tinges of brown.
DPO11 Now mega hungry! Getting lower backache, again worry I might be out...nipples still sore and is it my imagine or appear bigger...?
DPO12 Positive on FRER the line was so beautifully pink I was so happy!
DPO13 tested again on Clearblue get a 'pregnant 1-2'
Good luck to everybody reading this, these stories are what kept me going through the lonely, dark times, I'm glad to be able to share my experience oxoxox
