Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

9 DPO BFP Symptoms

This is the third month for us TTC (those waiting longer, I am sending you the biggest mental hug ever, because this was the most infuriating, time consuming, mentally exhausting process EVER!--you women deserve badges of honor!)

6 DPO: Slight spotting and fatigue (I dismiss both and chalk them up to physical exertion as I completed my first triathlon that a.m.)

7 DPO: Bleh. Feeling nauseous, throw up on my way to work. (dismiss as heat exertion left over from yesterday) Little dizzy (dismiss from stress), and boobs hurt--but that's not abnormal for me pre AF. Little more CM than usual--I think. (thought I don't pay much attention honestly)

8 DPO: I can smell peppers a mile away-literally. I HATE peppers. I throw up. Coworker tells me I'm either a) pregnant, or b) schitzophrenic--as apparently high sensitivity to smell is associated with that as well. Tired. Nothing new there--I work a ton of hours.

9DPO: Still feeling icky. Go to mall with mom, Williams Sonoma, my favorite place on earth, makes me want to puke. Something must be up. Took test, BFP.

10 DPO: Confirmed BFP w/ blood test at Dr. office. early, but Pregnant.

11 DPO: Sore boobs and queezy still.

I can't say that there is anything that "was the trick" this month--I chalk a lot of it up to luck, honestly. There were a few things different though:

1) we used First Response OPK--and I'm pretty sure we hit "THE DAY"
2) I started getting acupuncture this month--1 time pre-ovulation; 1 time post. Not sure if it had any effect on TTC or fertility, but it did calm me down--and chillax my tension, which helps.
3) I really did just take it easy. I slept a lot, hung out a lot, and just relaxed after O day.

Here's hoping Baby T sticks around!
