Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
9 months of TTC finally BFP at 10DPO !!!
My biggest clue that this was our month is I didn't have as many "symptoms" as I had every other month. And usually the week before AF I get a lot of acne but the acne never came. My temps also stayed .5 degrees higher than my coverline which is really high for me. I used musinex right before ovulation it helped increase my cm because I normally don't have a lot and I took benadryl for 4 nights in a row 5 days after O to help with implantation. And I've been taking prenatals every evening and I think those nutrients really helped us concieve. 1-3 dpo- I noticed sore nipples right away. Usually my boobs gets sore 8 days or so before AF but they werent sore, only my nipples were. 4 dpo- My lower back started bothering me which it rarely does but I remembered that feeling with my first two and I thought maybe something was going on :) 5-6 dpo- Nipples still sore and no pre AF acne ..also started having a small amount of clear sticky cm but not much 7 dpo- Terrible cramping like AF was on her way. I even had to use a heating pad it was that bad. Thought maybe this wasn't our month. 8 dpo- I started getting out of breath when I did normal every day activity, just enough to make me stop and catch my breath. Still barely any cm. Cramping had pretty much stopped now it was more like a few twinges and aches but not strong like AF. 9 dpo- Easily upset today, listening to radio and cried. But also pretty normal before AF too. But now lower back was killing me! Thought it was still too early to test. 10 dpo- My legs started cramping and my lower back still ached and the AF cramps never returned. I was also way more tired than usual, so I thought why not and I tested. BFP!! Kind of faint but definitely visible. 11 dpo- Waited till that evening and tested again BFP and a nice dark line! I am now 5 weeks and I still have a very small amount of cm so just because you don't have a lot of cm doesn't mean you're out! This board has helped me get thru the last 9 months and my early miscarriage 3 months ago. Don't give up hope ladies it will happen! I pray this little one sticks around!
