Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP @ 13dpo w/lupus, endometrosis, and unexplained 2ndary infertility-cycle 28
Hello Everyone. I Have been reading these posts since 2005 and they have helped me get through so many dark days. This story may be long. It was 2 years in the making.
In Nov 2014 I married my high school sweetheart. We have 5 children together. I stopped using the rhythm method immediately afterwards and thought if God wants me to have another baby, I will fall preg on my own. In July of 2015 I had a 5 week miscarriage. It broke my heart. I began to want another baby that summer and began ttcing. Fast forward to Jan 2016. I got another bfp that turned out to be a chemical because AF showed right at 13dpo.
Cd1 was Jan 9th. After 4 cycles of unprescribed clomid (oops) I began trying something more natural to conceive. I took black cohosh, evening primrose oil, vitex 500mg, prenatals, b6, and baby aspirin. The vitex made me O early. I usually O after cd 16. This month I O'd on cd11! After O I stopped taking evening primrose oil and black cohosh. I started noticing weird symptoms right away.

jan 30-cd 21-10dpo bfn same as yesterday but me and dh noticed a weird smell to my cm. Like I smell the hormones in it.
Jan 31-cd 22-11dpo bfn feeling very sad about prev losses. Gave up hope. Had a spiritual experience. After dreaming I was preg and died from the crossfire in a drive by shooting, I woke up and went to check on my children. While checking to make sure the front door was locked, I felt a hand grab mines. A long skinny adult hand that was cool to the touch. I ran to turn on the light and nobody was in the room with me. I was the only person awake in my home...
Feb 1-cd 23-12dpo-bfn (possibly a squinter) on frer. began to get AF cramps, temp dropped, backache, headache,cried myself to sleep.
Feb 2-cd 24-13dpo-woke to tons of drool on my pillow(did when I was preg). Im bloated, tired, crampy, back aching, and tearful. My breast are swollen and so is my belly. I can barely button my jeans. I was convinced that AF will be here today. After scouring the internet for bfp stories after 12dpo, I got the courage to take the last frer in the box. BFP!!!!!! Glory to my Heavenly Father who answered my prayers! I am due 10/12/2016 and I'm praying for a full term pregnancy and healthy baby! Baby #6! Bring it on!
