Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
11 DPO BFP on Digital
I have had pretty much no symptoms this month, which was in stark contrast to the past 2 months where I swore I was pregnant each time, due to all to the "symptoms" I was experiencing. I guess my biggest pregnancy symptom is to have no symptoms at all haha!
Onto the story... I was not going to test until the day my period was due (2 days from now) but I decided to just POAS this morning anyways just to see. I used one of my cheap wondofo tests and immediately SAW A LINE!!! I was NOT expecting that at all. I had one expensive clear blue digital left and I just said screw it, I'm going to test with this and if it doesn't work then oh well I'll invest in more tests later....
The digital said "Pregnant" and I was floored!!!
I am letting myself be excited this time because I spent the first few weeks of my last pregnancy very anxious. That one ended in an early miscarriage at 7 weeks, not caused by the anxiety of course, but the anxiety didn't allow me to enjoy the time at all. I am going to just allow myself to enjoy however long this pregnancy is because it has taken us so long to get here and I don't want to waste another moment being anxious.
What worked for us this month:
Supplements taken daily for (at least) past 3 months:
Vitamin D3 2000 IU
CoQ10 (ran out of this, so only took for half the month)
Probiotics 144 mg (Bio-Kult)
Magnesium Oil Spray (10-20 spritzes on legs and stomach at night)
Desiccated Grassfed Liver capsules 1500 mg
I take my basal body temperate and chart using Fertility Friend app, but I was pretty lax on temping this month and I stopped once I saw I had ovulated
BD everyday or every other day leading up to O date.
Used preseed each time
I laid with my hips elevated for as long as I could, 5-15 mins, post BD
Exercised a lot this month (running, cycling, yoga), which I think helped keep my energy up and anxiety down
