Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
2 years and 5 months later ... BFP
I am still in shock and awe! I was at the point where I thought this was just never going to happen for us and was going to suggest seeing a fertility Dr. starting in the Spring. BUT, I was 1 day late and I thought what the heck, why not just take a test, you know it's going to be negative but at least you can stop thinking about it then... but it turned out to be a BFP +++! For months I had been planning this big creative way to announce to my husband, but as soon as I saw the '+' I came out of the bathroom and said I have something I need to show you and gave him the test!! Just to confirm for myself, I took another test, this time I used the digital one that tells you how far along you likely are (1-2 weeks). So, now I am patiently waiting for Monday to come so I can call the clinic and make my appointment with the Dr. to get "real" confirmation. =) It's funny, for 2 months before I was using OPK to get an exact date of ovulation, I had just ordered a thermometer and have it sitting on my night table. But in November we were going to be away over what I figured was my ovulaiton window so I thought I will just save the kit until the following month, and wait to start the temp testing too! Guess I don't need either now!! My symptoms during the TWW were: extremely tired (I am usually a night owl, but the last couple weeks I am in bed by 9:30-10 bc I am so tired), found that I was burping a lot, then on dpo 12-15 I had some abdominal cramping, lower back pain, sore/tender breasts only began on dpo 12-13, and was pretty irritable (exact same symptoms I get right before my period, that's why I thought I was gonna get a BFN). We are super excited, but trying to keep calm until I get the confirmation from my Dr. =) Good luck and baby vibes to all of you out there struggling, I sympathize with you, try to stay positive and know that it will happen!
