Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
11 DPO, BFP! 2 months TTC
So I will give you a little back story....
I am 32, DH is 34. I've never been pregnant before, DH has a son from a previous relationship. I cannot stress how much I've wanted a baby ...and I thought because I wanted it so bad it would take longer, but we got our BFP on our second month trying. DH works out of town, so I thought that would hinders us as well. I bought Easy@Home ovulation kit to help us and I really believe that it was the reason we got pregnant so fast. We only BD 2x durning my fertile window. The day before and the day of ovulation as per the OPK.
Because I stalk these message boards like a crazy person, I decided to tell you my story to give hope to all the future moms to be because it will happen for you as well :)
I will also say, I did track my CP and it was all over the place ...low, high, hard, soft... all through out my DPO. So, I don't even think it's a good indicator of pregnancy or even worth tracking.
I have a fairly regular cycle. 29-31 days. This month I ovulated on CD15.
2-4- DPO - not many symptoms, cm becoming more creamy and whitish... lotion like ?
5-6 DPO - the cramps start in my low pelvic area. They are less than bad period cramps, but are constantly there... a dull cramping... feels heavy in my uterus, boobs are not that sore but feel full, constipation, and I feel really tired. CM- increases, creamy white wet.
7DPO- exhaustion. Feel like I could nap 2x a day, irriatable, emotional. Dull cramps still there, skin breaks out with some acne (rare for me) my gums and teeth are sore...very strange... no bleeding gums as I have read before but very sore. I get a headache in the evening. CM -creamy white wet
8-9DPO- exhaustion- going to bed at 830pm (Rare for me), sore gums, increased appetite, feel like I am getting sick...temp is high, sore throat a bit...over all, I think I'm just coming down with something. Pressure in pelvic area still.
10DPO- something tells me to take an IC hcg test...I swear I see a line but it's sooooooo faint (basically a shadow) that i actually cannot fully believe it's there. I think it's all in my head. CM- creamy wet, more of it than normal. Getting suspicious.
11DPO- dull pressure in uterus. Mild cramps.test with first response early results and get a faint positive. My first BFP!!!!! No longer have to squint to see, but it isn't a strong positive. Overwhelmed by emotion. Thankful to God for this blessing.
12DPO- strong positive BFP. Not even a guess that it's positive. Dull pressure in uterus.
symptoms I did not have:
It's so hard emotionally when you want a baby so badly and people tell you to just relax and let it happen...easier said than done!!! I am not saying stress over everything but I don't think there is anything wrong with doing everything you absolutely can to increase your chances :)
I feel so blessed and I know it'll happen for YOU as well. Baby dust to all. I hope my BFP turns out to be a healthy baby :)
