Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP 11DPO after 6 months ttc #2

Been here before a couple years ago when I was trying to conceive my first, I've always found this board so helpful and oddly calming during my tww! So here's the quick background, my post from November 2014:

That pregnancy ended at 7 weeks after another miscarriage just two months before that. It would be 5 more months and 1 more miscarriage (a chemical and my third loss) before I conceived in early June of 2015. My daughter was born healthy, happy and perfect in February of 2016. We started ttc #2 in September of 2017 and have just conceived 6 cycles later in February. I was very surprised it took this long because I've always conceived relatively quickly, first ever try 3rd cycle, 2nd try 2nd cycle, 3rd try 4th cycle and 4th try 1st cycle (conceived my daughter immediately after I bled from the previous chemical pregnancy).

This round, we were "chill" but ttc'ing hard.

Symptoms (not many!) by dpo:

O'd early on cd13 (had a +opk the night before on cd12 as well and the morning of cd13)
BD'd cd 8, 11, 12, 13, 14
1dpo: couple twinges
2dpo: some more twinges and got full on sick w/ a fever
3dpo: still a bit sick but busy with my daughter's second birthday plans
4dpo: "
5dpo: "
6dpo: bit achey in the ovaries
7dpo: nothing
8dpo: slight left side ovarian twinges, crampy in pm?
9dpo: am slight nausea, pm POSSIBLY the faintest line on an hpt with a HARD tweak
10dpo: same thing, re: test -- basically a SHADOW, pm legit cramps i needed a hot water bottle for (this was a good sign for me, too far from AF for this kind of cramping)
11dpo: woke up, POAS, an actual (still faint) line i didn't need to tweak to see, yaaaaaas!

All the fingers and toes crossed for a sticky one!! Baby aspirin after a +HPT helped me carry my first baby full term so I'll be doing that again for sure.

Things I did differently this month: Amped up my acupuncture, my ND put me on a new supp to aid implantation: Wobenzym N (systemic enzymes), drank raspberry leaf tea cd3-ovulation

Full supplement list: prenatal, folate, methylated b12, vit d, zinc, fish oil, wobenzym n
