Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP 14 DPO w/ Spotting

Hello all you lovely ladies. Like most of you I have searched this site endlessly hoping and praying that one say it would be me writing on here, and what do you know, here am!!! A little background, me and my partner have not been trying but not preventing for a year now, last year I was diagnosed with PCOS. I am one of those who has skinny PCOS as in quite petite and the only symptoms of this disorder I have are swollen ovaries with the string of pearl folicules and severe abdominal pain with irregular to no ovulation. I found out on April the 2nd that I am pregnant! Here are my symptoms. Bd cd15, cd 18 o'd cycle day 19.

1dpo woke up with blood in my nose
2dpo suddenly turned constipated :(
3dpo-7dpo cramping all over the place and started to go to the loo every half hour....this happens often when my ovaries are swollen so I thought nothing of it.
8dpo nose bleed...haven't had one of these since I was 16.
9dpo sudden elastic band type flick in my abdomens that made me say " auch" out load. This lasted no more than a few seconds.
10dpo to 14dpo started feeling really crampy as if I was going to get my period so when I was at work on 14dpo and I saw brown discharge in my nickers I figured that my period had arrived and that was it. Except a) just before the brown turned up I had an unbundle nice of creamy white cm in me nickers which I found odd b) the brown had disappeared the time I got home and was never on the toilet paper when I wiped which I found odd. So against my better judgment I pulled out a first response and peed. Lo and behold only one line, thought to myself I'm going mad, then took a second look and as I was staring a beautiful second line started to appear in front of me!!!! Holy cow!!!!! 15dpo took an other using FMU positive!
17dpo positive blood test. I'm overjoyed that even when I was told I would have to go on fertility treatment if ever I wanted to get pregnant, I am now pregnant naturally!

Thank you to all for your stories and symptoms they really helped me stay sane and comforted me when I was told it would be very difficult.


Thank you for this! Im also 14DPO and i Just saw brown spotting so this makes me hopeful!

Im12 dpo, i have had all the same symptons, but today everything is gone except cramping, pretty sure af is coming but ur story gives me a little hope :) congrats by the way :)

I am now 14dpo and had all the symptoms. I have very swollen and sore breasts. Vivd dreams, gassy, lots of creamy CM. But this morning I had Very Very light brownish pink when I wiped and I have gone the rest of the day with nothing. I tested two days ago and got a BFN. So I am now hopeful. Thank you.

hi , just wanted to share my story


I just want to connect with someone who is experiencing the same things that I am. I am 14 dpo and noticed brown discharge this afternoon. Very disappointed because I'm worried AF is coming; however, my bbt was high at 98.9 this morning. I am now 2 days late. I did take a pregnancy test on the day I was supposed to get my period, and it came back negative. I have had tender nipples for about 5 days now, which usually I feel nothing in my breasts...I suppose I'll see what happens tonight, and if AF doesn't come maybe I will take another test in the morning. I read so many stories about implantation bleeding or brown spotting while still being pregnant, so I am hoping this is the case. It is such an emotional roller coaster, and I feel like I am running to the bathroom every time I feel something!

Well ive been trying for a while now and I recently gotten 3 faint positive bfp since 11 dpo and yesterday I took another test and it came out faint positive again. Now today at 14 dpo I started spotting light pink wen I wipe only and cramping a bit. What could it be? I was thinking maybe evaporated lines but 4 in a row is impossible. This will b my second pregnancy. I have a healthy 3 year old daughter. Has this ever happened to anyone before? Should I worry? My last period was jan 25 and Im sure I ovulated feb 7 because i keep track of my cm all the time and it was like egg whites and and had sex that day and on the 9th.

I do feel a bit crampy. And I forgot to mention I had light pink spotting on the on the 13th of feb. Really brief bleeding... can b compared to the color of pink lemonade. But only wen I wipe. I also notice my areolas are getting darker too and my nipples are tender and I feel sleepy gassy and constantly peeing. Constipated also im pretty sure im pregnant.

I normally come on heavy and painfull im always regular im due my period today felt like it was guna start but just abit of cramping and when wipe light brown discharge can anyone tell me of this is my period oh ive been having unprotected sex.

Thanks stacey

6/16/14 today I am 14 dpo and it would seem that a lot of my symptom's have slowed my nipples are extremely sore and my lower back hurts , and I have had a lot of school glue like cm . I tested this afternoon to only see a BFN and instantly my heart broke . now what I am wondering is did I test too soon . has anyone experienced what I am going through. My period appeared to be starting this morning when I woke up but I went to the bathroom and wiped and there was some pink blood there has been nothing since and I am going on about 5 hours . I am so confused and heart broken.. Any One with Advice Please Help

Am so afraid AF is about to start. I have not tested yet. I am 14 dpo. Was waiting until i missed my period (had planned to test 16 dpo) but it looks like i did not miss it. I am cramping like i normally do day 1 of AF and i just saw red spotting when i wiped. I was so sure it had happened this month. Only my second month TTC. I had mild cramping around 6-8 dpo and a small amount of blood at 10 dpo (was sure that had to be IB). I also had lower back pain, very tired, tender boobs, bad nausea and excessive peeing all during the TWW. I never get any symptoms at all from ovulation to AF. None. Only day 1 very bad cramps. I was so sure things were different this month. How can my body make up these damn symptoms? It is so crazy. I was so sure i would finally get my BFP this month and never even got a chance to test because i was waiting until after the TWW. Well the TWW is now over and now i am sure i am getting AF cramps. I am scared to death to go to the bathroom and see blood. I am so disappointed because i know these bad cramps i am experiencing on the night of 14 dpo are AF cramps . The witch is here and i am not pregnant again. It wouldnt matter so much if i was younger but i dont have much time left... I never would have thought having a baby was this difficult. I am sure i BD at ovulation. I know i got the timing right. I am so disappointed AF is here....these cramps are exactly what i get day 1 and i have started bleeding. I am sure by tomorrow it will be a heavy flow as usual. This month is over.... It's not over til AF comes. Well she effing witch came! I think i'm realizing now i will never get a BFP....i am so jealous of you all who get your bfp's... I will never experience that happiness... Well it's official. AF is here. Bad cramps and heavy bleeding... This month is over. In fact i'm seriously considering not trying anymore. And accept thst i was not meant to be a mom.... I'm in my 40's and dont even ovulate every month anymore...i'm really sick of TTC...

AF definitely here. I can't deal with this disappointment of TTC anymore.

Exactly two weeks (14 days) after ovulation/ conception, i get AF. My LP is 14 days. She was right on time as usual. If she had not shown up yesterday, i would have done an HPT today... I am beyond depressed because i may have to wait 2 months to try again. (i dont ovulate monthly anymore). My hope of having a baby is all but gone at this was such a long tww only to end with af... No need for me to test this month. Obviously a bfn....I hope the rest of you reading this have better luck at getting your BFPs....
