Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP 12DPO With LONG Cycles + OPK

I went off BCP in July 2011 after 13 years. I'm 31, DH 38. My first period after getting off BCP came after 50 days, then had a 38 day cycle, then another 50 cycle. So I wasn't sure if I was irregular because my body was trying to regulate itself after BCP or if there was something else going on.

Started using Clear Blue Digital OPK after 4 months TTC to see when or if was ovulating at all since my cycles were so long.

Positive OPK on 4th cycle day 26 & 27. So I knew I wouldn't have a regular cycle this time either since I didn't get + OPK until CD26. Didn't really have any symptoms whatsoever except had to get up in middle of night most nights to pee. Unusual for me to not sleep through the night and didn't drink a lot of liquids before bed for this reason- cause I want to sleep through night and not get up to pee. But I had to pee every 3 hours some nights. Weird. Also on DPO11 and DPO12, I got a stretching feeling in my stomach, like I had done several crunches the day before and my abs were sore. But I had not done any abs workouts.

That's what felt so weird and I couldn't wait any longer and had to POAS.

Got dark BFP w/o FMU (tested at 7:00pm) on 12DPO! It still doesn't seem real! Tested again on 13 DPO w/o FMU again just to see, and BFP again! God is great!

I also went off bc in July 2011.  I also had a positive OPK on cd 26 & 27 this month.  I have had very long cycles since coming off the pill.  I even had to take some progesterone to give my body a jump start.  Getting that positive on the OPK test was so great.  I've not been sleeping well at all and had slight cramping this week.  AF isn't due until Jan. 25th but I can't wait to POAS.  So happy for you!!  Glad to know there is hope for those of us with very long cycles. And, yes, God is good.
