Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Thank you all for sharing your stories...would like to help others out by sharing my symptoms in the hopes that it makes your wait easier!
O'ed on July 4 (best guess)
BD'd 3 days before, two days before, then the night of O
1-3 DPO: terrible tooth sensitivity near wisdom teeth (not sure if related but got it checked out and nothing was wrong) - stinging even when I drank
room temp water
4 DPO: absolutely miserable night, couldn't sleep for HOURS, right arm and leg feels super strangely numb, lower abdominal pain that doesn't feel like AF, feel feverish (flu-like)
5-7 DPO: tired, nap in the afternoon (not typical)
7-9 DPO: mild cramping, alternating between left and right side. Mild but noticeable nausea that comes and goes. I feel like eating but then begin and get full very fast (not typical). Also once the food is on my plate and I've taken a couple of bites appetite leaves.
8 DPO: extremely wiped out but attributed this to a very busy day. Craving a somewhat unhealthy food (noodles) for dinner. Decide to eat something healthier. Then an hour later decide to have a second dinner of noodles...I've never eaten two sizeable portions back to back like that. Still wiped out.
9 DPO: I never get sore BBs before AF but for first time the sides feel painful when I put pressure on them. Plus they look a bit bigger. This tenderness has increased in the past couple of days.
10 DPO: decide to test using FRER (not FMU). Hide the results window, walk in and there are two lines!!!!!!! It feels totally surreal, I almost laugh because I can't believe the result. Is this happening to me?!?!? :) Test again with FRER in evening with DH around. BFP again!!!! Then again late at night with Clear Blue Digital (figured we'd double check by changing the brand and type of test). Same deal! :)
11 DPO: Tested again with Clear Blue Digital. Preggers!
Couple of other points worth mentioning:
- We used pre-seed
- Also used a pillow under my hips after sex and stayed there for about 20 mins
- I usually don't have a ton of CM in general and didn't really see that as a symptom so for those of you like me who had a hard time relating to posts where people reported tons of lotion-y CM before and after O, there's hope yet :)
