Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
2 months TTC
I am so blessed to report that after only two months of TTC, I got my BFP on 9DPO (faint positives starting 7DPO)!
Here is my background information- 28 years old, no family history of infertility but my mom did miscarry at 12 weeks between her 2 successful pregnancies.
I used period tracker app for 2 years before trying so I knew my cycle length (25 days). I used the OVIA app while TTC. It incorrectly predicted my fertile window, so it's a good thing I was using OPK's! I ovulate late around CD 14-15 and have a short luteal phase (10-11 days MAX)
Fertile window for me was CD 10-15, We BD on CD 12, 13, 14, 15 & 16. I'm pretty sure I O'd on CD 15.
Now on to the good stuff:
1DPO- EWCM *BD today
2DPO- Gas in the evening
3DPO- Slept 9 hours the night before, fatigue, Vivid dream, thick yellow CM, runny nose
4DPO- Vivid dreams (Very emotional dreams, which is something I've never experience before), Mild teeth sensitivity, yellow CM, increased appetite, Sore nipples (This is a symptom that made me really hopeful, as my nipples are never sore during PMS)
5DPO- Yellow CM, Minor cramps, Sore Nipples, Pimples on chest and back appeared, Bloating
6DPO- Yellow CM, Minor cramps, Sore Nipples, Heavy/tender breasts, Emotional
7DPO- Slept 9 hours night before, Vivid dream (Again, involving high emotions), 3 BM's before 2pm, Sore nipples, yellow cm.
I took my first HPT with FMU on 7DPO (4 days before AF) I was in a rush and didn't examine the results fully. It wasn't until my lunch break that I took a look and saw a very very faint positive! I know the test dye could have bled, so I took another HPT in the evening and sure enough, very faint positive.
8DPO- This is the morning I knew I was pregnant for sure. I went to bed the night before around 1am and woke up at 7am with TONS of energy. Felt like I could run a marathon. I should mention this was a Saturday, a day that I usually relax in bed until 10am. HPT with FMU and a faint positive (stronger line than the night before). Around 5pm I started having weird cramps...Not anything like PMS cramps. Almost like what I would imagine a small contraction would feel like. It felt like my uterus was expanding from all sides. It lasted for about 45 seconds. Little cramps followed, but nothing with that kind of distinct feeling. Light brown CM.
9DPO- HPT with FMU. Even stronger line than day before. Still not getting a BFP. I went and purchased clear blue digital (To get my "PREGNANT" result clear as day). I couldn't wait for the next morning, so I took my test around 7pm. It took 3 minutes to appear, but I got my BFP. For some reason it wasn't real to me and my husband until then!
Baby dust to all of you ladies out there!
