Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

3rd Time is a Charm!

I must say that the past three months I was stalking this page, but this month not so much to let myself to "relax" as everyone else says. I tried not to "care" as much, but I was crossing my fingers just like any other month. I went off BC in June 2012. My husband deployed so I figured go off then and get my body back to normal. And good thing, too. My cycles were irregular: 26 days, 47 days, 55 days for the first three months. Then he came home and we used OPK and charting my BBT that first month to see if I was actually ovulating. It showed a surge and my temp spiked so I felt that I was ovulating and we now needed to get the timing right. My cycle was 32 days. I felt like I was finally getting to my "normal" cycle. The following month we continued to use OPK and charting, but we added Preseed. I had a 37 day cycle. This time, the lucky third time, we used the CB OPK, charting BBT, Preseed, and I took FertilAid. This morning my temperature spiked so I decided to take a pregnancy test even though I told DH I was going to take one Tuesday. I'm 12DPO and got my first BFP with a CBD!!!! As for what symptoms I was feeling, I honestly felt nothing different than getting AF. I seriously thought she was coming and I kept checking to see yesterday because I was slightly cramping and bloated and felt like I was leaking. I felt like she was coming and kept telling DH that I think we were out this month and started planning when I might be ovulating in March. I did spot 9DPO during BD (sorry TMI) and this is usually a sign that AF is coming. The one thing looking back was that I get really bad lower back aches right before AF shows, but this month I did not have the back aches. Maybe that was my one clue. I'm crossing my fingers for a sticky bean! Baby dust to you all!
