Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

5+ years ttc with PCOS BFP+++Conceived naturally with diet change!

This will be long so if you just want symptoms DPO then scroll down to the bottom. I wrote this for my PCOS lady's because i want us all to cure are PCOS, and I have found out how. Cleared my skin, lessen excess hair, regulated periods, induced ovulation, and weight loss all without medication, or supplements. I have PCOS, and I was not ovulating on my own. I did not want to take metformin and clomid. After a lot of research I found that pcos is caused by insulin resistance, which is in turn is caused by too much sugar, and carbohydrates in the diet. Which is why metformin helps women conceive by increasing insulin sensitivity, which allows your hormones to normalize. On 12/05/15 I started the Ketogenic Diet. It is Low carb, high fat, moderate protein. Basically all you eat is Veggies, meat, and small amounts of dairy, and nuts. No sugar, no grains, no starchy, veggies, no fruit! At the same time i tracked my calories on an app so as to not go over 2000 cals a day. So far i have lost 40lbs, but this was not my goal pregnacy was. with in 2 weeks of starting this diet, i got my period for the first time in 6 months. I then had 3 consecutive 28 day cycles, but i do not believe i was ovulating because i had no fertile cm, negative opks, and light bleeding for my period. In MAY 2016 i got my first positive OPKS, EWCM, ovulation pains, followed by heavy, crampy 6 day period. Yay!!! I'm ovulatating! bfn cycles, but progress :) My cycles where i actually ovulated became longer 39 dayish cycles. I feel if I ate too many carbs, my ovulation would delay. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Well this cycle, was a long one. I ovulated on the fourth of July Cycle day 26. positive opks, 8 days of ewcm, lots of right sided cramps the 3rd, and 4th. 1DPO: Sore Nipples, and fronts of breast, no side breast pain. Had this the whole TTW 2DPO: Sore breasts 3DPO: right ovary cramping, sore breasts 4DPO:sore breasts 5DPO: Exhausted, couldn't keep eyes open, napped 2 hours, sore breasts 7DPO: gas bubbles in tummy, Exhausted, couldn't keep eyes open, napped 2 hours, sore breasts 8DPO: more gas bubbles, but no gas, Exhausted, couldn't keep eyes open, napped 1 hour, sore breasts -BFN WONDFO 9DPO: diarrhea in morning,Tired, occasional light cramps, almost like I'm imagining them. like uterine contractions after an orgasm. sore breasts -BFN WONDFO 10DPO:diarrhea in morning, light cramps only when i standup. I would stand up, walk a few feet and would be hit with cramps in the center of my uterus, would last 5 seconds or so, and i would not cramp again until i sat, and then stood up again. Sore Breasts -BFN WONDFO 11DPO:diarrhea in morning, Same cramps but getting stronger and more uncomfortable. sore breasts -BFN WONDFO almost think i see something, but toss it. 12DPO: Same intense cramps. consitpation, tested with FMU saw a line so light, i thought it was an evap, i couldn't capture it in a picture. but it made my wonder. Tested on another WONDFO in afternoon on 4 hour hold very Faint BFP, but i see color! dip Frer in same urine Sample and a faint pink line there as well!!! 13DPO: same cramps, but random, not just when i stand. Boobs are not as sore. slight nausea. Positive Clear blue digital!!! 3 weeks 6 days pregnant! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I account my pregnancy 100% to the ketogenic diet, if i do not count my carbs, and my calories i do not ovulate. It took me 7 months from starting this diet to convenience after 5 years of nothing. If you have PCOS try it, you will see vast improvements. I pray this bean is a sticky one! Baby dust to all!!!

Congratations! God this gives me so much hope, you have no idea. I have pcos and insulin resistance, and have been trying to balance my hormones without clomid or metformin. I've changed my diet, and while I don't follow keto, I've followed that lead by significantly reducing the amount of refined carbs and sugar I eat every day, as well as exercising more, drinking more water, getting more sleep and working on handling stress better. I'm really hoping to get pregnant naturally this way. Thank you so much for sharing your story and giving me some hope :)
