Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP 12DPO

My husband and I were TTC for 3 months. I stopped BC in late April, waited for 3 months to get back on schedule and started TTC in August. We tried the ovulation prediction kits but for some reason, this didn't work for me. My temperature spiked the next morning after getting a positive OPK in both August and September. So, we winged it in October. BD'd every other day for 9 days around the time when we knew I would be ovulating. It worked!! I had BFP 12 DPO and this was after work and after drinking lots of water all day. Here were my symptoms:

1 - 8 DPO: Nothing to report. I felt totally normal.
9 DPO: Woke up with sore throat, sneezing and stuffy.
10 DPO: Felt a little more irritable than usual --cried before work. My BBs were really sore with pain under my armpit on the right side that night. Starting to get excited!! Still have cold symptoms.
11 DPO: It was my birthday and all I wanted to do was lay down -- "crappy cold" I thought. Also, cramps were off and on all day. Of course I blew out my candles with a wish for a positive test Saturday!
12 DPO: My husband sent me a list of early pregnancy symptoms at work saying "you have almost all of these symptoms". I felt sleepy and kind of zoned. Went home and snuck in a test while he was in the kitchen. Sure enough, it was positive!!
13 DPO: Still have a cold, cramps, sore BBs and winded going up the stairs. Took another test in the morning [like you're supposed to!]. Very positive.

Best birthday ever! I'm 35 and hubby 41. We are so excited!
