Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

After 5 years...

I have been stalking this site for as long as I can remember and could not wait until I posted my own one day. Things I did differently this month: I saw a naturopath and she provided me with 50 billion probiotics, better prenatals, high dose dhea and fish oil. I also cut out gluten, refined sugar and dairy. I had done 2 medicated IUIs and this month decided to “take a month off”. My symptoms were not what I was expecting at all. Less than any other month I was “convinced” I was pregnant: DPO 1-5: Nothing at all DPO 6: more tired than usual, not regular tired, but like couldn’t fight through it tired, mood was low DPO 7-14: only more tiredness, I slept a lot longer than usual, irritable and was picking fights with DH. Took frer on DPO 8 due to the tiredness - hard negative. Bought ovulation tests, pregnancy tests, bbt thermometer and book on conceiving from amazon - that is how convinced I was that I was not pregnant. DPO 12: Had a dream about a positive pregnancy test, but didn’t think much of it because I’ve been consumed by this whole process the past few months. DPO 14: received my order from amazon, thought I’d take a hpt for the hell of it - hard BFP!!! Took 2 more tests to confirm and made DH run to pharmacy to get a ClearBlue. I hope this lets everyone know that there is hope when you feel like you’ve been trying forever and it’s never going to happen! It still hasn’t sunk in and I’m hoping for a very sticky baby, as I had a miscarriage about 5 years ago and no BFPs before today.

Yay!! Congratulations!!!

Your post really gives me hope. I had been trying for almost 9 years before I had an ectopic pregnancy this past May (my first pregnancy ever). I am currently on my tww since we were cleared to finally try again. I am currently 9dpo and have been exhausted since about 5-6dpo. So fingers crossed. Congratulations btw! I love reading stories like yours.
