Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
CD14: EWCM, BD with DH
CD15: Bad cramps all day with one spot of light pink blood at the end of the day. This had never happened to me before, but I have had tenderness on one side or the other when ovulating. No tenderness this time, just really bad cramps that lasted the whole day!
1 DPO: Broke out, my skin was dry, had a slight headache, felt a twinge of nausea, and was irritable and moody
2 DPO: Still really irritated and bloated. DH commented on how moody I was. Felt really tired but couldn't sleep!
3 DPO: Bloated, tired, moody, slightly nauseous, nipples started to itch, had some mild cramps.
4 DPO: Still tired! Back hurt, irritated with DH - poor guy couldn't do anything right, cried for no reason, constipated.
5 DPO: More of the same but also getting hot flashes. BBT is way up.
6 DPO: Temp still high. Feel tired all day, and suddenly get really bad cramping on the right side of my uterus. Felt dizzy and weak and sick to my stomach. Lasted for a couple of hours. Implantation? Went away in the early evening, and then just tired.
7 DPO: Feeling exhausted. Temp dip. Really creepy dreams about watching my aunt give birth to some kind of weird, mythical creature. Also dreamed I had a baby but couldn't get to it to take care of it. More pain on the right in the afternoon, similar to the day before but it only lasted about 20 minutes and then nothing. Starting to feel hopeful! Went to a hypnotherapist to help me invite my baby into my body and our lives. (Call me crazy, but I've had 7 miscarriages, and I'll try anything at this point! LOVED the experience, btw!!)
8 DPO: Woke up in early AM to more of the same type of pain on the right. Only lasted for a couple of minutes and then it spread in a straight line across my lower abdomen and went away. Temp back up. Nipples are tender and sensitive, bloated, tired, HUNGRY. BFN on IC.
9 DPO: Boobs started to hurt as well as nipples. Still tired, but feeling an increase in energy. Another BFN on IC that says I should get a positive at 10miu. Starting to think I'm out for this month. Even have some wine at dinner with friends!
10 DPO: Big temp dip, and now I'm convinced I'm out. Boobs still hurt, really fatigued, but friends are in town so I'm all over the city doing tourist stuff, and think maybe that's why I'm so tired. Super hungry but think it's PMS. Don't bother to test.
11 DPO: Temp back up a little. Hmm... still don't test because it's not up much, all symptoms still there and SO TIRED I can hardly move by the afternoon. Feel like crying for no reason. Still think it's just going to be a bad period this month. Big fight with DH that makes no sense at all. I'm know I sound insane, but I can't help it. (You obviously don't support me because your voice doesn't sound like it!!)
12 DPO: Temp up even more. All symptoms still there, vivid dreams, BFN with FRER. Starving.
13 DPO: More of the same! Another BFN with FRER, one at 4:30am and another in the afternoon. Feel like I'm losing my mind. Another fight with DH. (He's beside himself at this point, and even comes home early from work to find out what the real problem is. Can't find one.) Should be starting my period either today or tomorrow. Mild cramps on and off all day. Craving chocolate cake and fried chicken. Normally don't like either.
14 DPO: Still no AF!! Convinced I must be preggo but can't understand why I keep getting negative tests. Feel less tired today (CRAZY dreams last night, and slept like a rock), boobs and nips feel slightly less sore, but my vagaga feels TIGHT when checking my CP. (Woo hoo, we're gonna take advantage of that tonight!) CP is hard and high, with lots of creamy CM. So weird. Swear I'm not going to test today but do anyway in the afternoon and SUPER LIGHT BFP!!! I knew it!! Checked it in every light I could think of and it's definitely there! So happy AND I'm not insane after all! ;)
