Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

40 With BFP After MMC

I had my first 4 children (8 pregnancies) between 2000 and 2005. MC, Girl, mc & d&c, ectopic (lost left tube), girl, mc & D&C, boy, boy. Fast forward to 2013 after divorce and new marriage, here I am at 40 planning for another baby. We just thought we'll hope for the best and see what happens. Pretty much fell pregnant straight away but ended up miscarrying naturally at 8 weeks after ultrasounds confirming no fatal pole. I started charting and taking vitex, b6, vitamin D, CQ10, and a pregnancy multivitamin. Then I had two anovulatory cycles and two ovulatory cycles. This 5th cycle however was different. I included Tribulus from CD4 to CD13. My chart was different straight away, steady temps in the follicular phase, and slow climb on the luteal phase then huge spike and two dips, and is now climbing steady.

1 DPO - Temp only went just above coverline - feels like AF is coming already.
2 DPO - Temp dipped slightly - even closer to coverline - cramps are more noticeable - creamy CM.
3 DPO - Huge temp jump - cramps continue - creamy CM.
4 DPO - Temp still high - constant cramping - so tired - cream CM.
5 DPO - Temp is heading down - constant cramping - bloated and tired - let the POAS begin BFN.
6 DPO - Temp is back down near coverline - cramping, feeling better - BFN.
7 DPO - Temp tiny bit up - cramping - BFN - getting breakouts - creamy CM.
8 DPO - Temp back down - CRAZY dream last night. I was swimming and when I had a shower, I looked down and I'd 'given birth' to a watermelon sized amount of creamy CM. When I woke up I knew this cycle was different. BFN in the morning, but later that night, I POAS and came back about 20 minutes later - I know, not in the time frame, but there was the faintest of pink lines - not like the grey evaporation lines I'd been getting.
9 DPO - Temp gradually climbing again - BFP. I POAS about 3 times a day and it's getting darker throughout the day.
10DPO - Temp is gradually zigzagging up - BFP pink lines. I also got a digital PREGNANT 1-2 WEEKS on a Clearblue.
11DPO - BFP - test line is almost same colour as control line.
12DPO - BFP - test line is almost same colour as control line.

I'm off to the doctor tomorrow to arrange HCG blood tests and Progesterone levels - but I know this one is a keeper. I wish you all the very best in your journeys for little babies.

Congrats! I hope you have a healthy nine months.

Congrats! Which brand of tests did you use initially?

I used the cheaper First Reponse dip tests, from 5dpo to 8dpo, then used FRER from 9dpo onwards. I kept photos from definitely negative tests from before ovulation so I could compare possible faint bfps and possible evaporation lines. Good luck with your TTC too.
