Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP 10dpo with PCOS

Skip to the bottom if you don't want the background story :) My story: I've never had a normal period, partially due to having an eating disorder for many years. We went off birth control in August 2016 and I just knew getting pregnant wasn't going to be easy for us. I gained 80 pounds since 2012 and am now 165pds at 5'6" and can't lose weight no matter how hard I try. I had one period between August and November. I had intense ovary pain (like someone poured icy hot over my ovaries) so I went in for an ultrasound. Ovaries had cysts all over them. OB wanted to wait a little longer but suspected PCOS. I didn't have a period for another 90 days so I had another ultrasound in February 2017. Was officially diagnosed with PCOS and put on Metformin 500mg twice a day. In March, I had spotting for two weeks. In Early April, I had spotting for five days. I guess they were sort of periods? April 19th- Ovulation day: Temp 97.5. I got my first blazing positive OPK ever. I hadn't been using OPKs because I gave up on them but I was having sore nipples and lots of CM so I decided to take one (haven't had these symptoms since I was a teenager!). BD'd right away because I was so excited. We BD'd the night before too. Light menstrual-like cramping. 1dpo: Temp 98.16. sore, erect nipples continue. Light menstrual-like cramping. 2-3dpo: Temp 98.3. sore, erect nipples. Very little CM. 4dpo: Temp 98.67. Nipples slightly sore, light central cramping in uterus, left side pain (I usually have right side pain). Gassy and irritable. Menstrual cramps. 5 dpo: Temp 98.47. menstrual cramps, gassy 6 dpo: Temp 98.54. left side cramping/pain, no more sore nipples, noticed I had several BMs in one day (I'm usually constipated). White creamy CM mixed with watery CM. Restless sleep. Exhausted- nap on lunch break. 7 dpo- Temp 98.6. Exhausted. Waking up a lot throughout night. BFN. 8 dpo- Temp 98.48. Restless sleep. Hot flashes and burning sensation in uterus in the night. Weird dreams. DH dreamt we had a baby. Morning nausea. Right side twinges. Feeling off- shaky. Low back pain when I was in bed trying to fall asleep. BFN. 9 dpo- Temp 98.6 BFN. Pretty sure I'm out this cycle. Tired like I didn't sleep at all (I slept 9 hours). Left side twinges. I dreamt I was pregnant. 10dpo- Temp 98.61. Slightest of slight second line on a cheapie HPT. Convince myself it's an evap. Use SMU on First Response HPT and see a faint second line! Take four more tests, all with faint second line. Take digital clearblue in the afternoon- said Not Pregnant but it might just be too early and too diluted. Left sided twinges and menstrual cramps. "Background Nausea" where I feel slightly nauseous off and on but it isn't terrible. 11 dpo- BFP on First Response Digital!! Random morning nausea where I legitimately thought I was going to puke. Cramps. 12dpo- Blood test- HCG is 50 and Progesterone is 22! Consistently having cramps. Icy hot feeling on ovaries. Gas. 13dpo- Go in for ultrasound. Ovaries look good (no cysts!). Too early to see baby. Gas. 14dpo- Blood test- HCG 137 (good news, more than doubled in 48 hours like it's supposed to). Gas. Hope this baby sticks! I'm cautiously optimistic.
