BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

37, first natural pregnancy, 25 days cycle

Hey everybody and first of all, good luck to each and every girl with this exciting journey! I want to share my experience, because the other stories were very helpful for me. Background: I am 37, my partner is 36 and we tried for about 7-8 months until I got my BFP. I have rather shorter periods, of about 25 days, pretty regular ones (25 and 26 days mostly, sometimes 24 or 27 and rarely 28 days). As many of you, I read and read everything. I tried for a few days to take my BBT, but it was horror because I saw no rise after ovulation and then I thought I`m not ovulating at all. Before ovulation, sometimes I had what is called "fertile mucus", but mostly watery and not so much EWCM. In some months, I had very very little EWCM, I remember that even in ,my BFP month the mucus was not so fertile, or this is what I was thinking. I made some ultrasounds, and the doctor found dominant ovules at CD 7 or CD 8. I used ovulation tests, sometimes the second line was lighter that the test line, even 12 hours after ovulation. Of course I went crazy with all this, not knowing if I ovulate, if OV isn`t too early and the ovule is not perfect, why don`t I have fertile mucus, why my BBT isn`t rising even 3 DPO and so on. HANG IN THERE! We bought a fertility lubricant: Baby Start, I think it is made in UK, and from CD 1 till ovulation I took Evening Primrose oil capsules, for fertile mucus. From my experience and my BFP I think usually I ovulated on CD 13, due to my short cycles (on CD 12 I had the strongest second line on ovulation test). Sometimes, in non BFP months, I had fertile mucus on CD 16, CD 17 and that made me think I cannot pinpoint my OV date, but I was wrong. I really think my OV date was on CD 13 most of the times. As symptoms, almost NONE. I think on CD 16-CD 22 or sometimes in that period I had more white CM (but I also had sometimes white CM even in non BFP months) and also a so-called stomach ache but very mild (upper stomach). I got my BFP on CD 24 and I was and still am extatic. I am now 14 weeks!!! Good luck again to you all! If you have any question, please let me know, I am happy if my story helps someone.
