Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP- 1st Time TTC with PCOS (unmedicated)

Hey ladies! I have been stalking these boards and figured I NEEDED to share my story to give some of you a little bit of hope :)

Back story, I have PCOS (unmedicated but completely made a lifestyle change with eating and exercise) so I literally have no idea when/if I ovulate. My daughter is 19 months old so DH and I decided we would start trying for number 2, in case it took a while. Well here I am a day after my BFP in shock!

BD CD 8,11,13,15 (“o” cd 15 based on ovary pain!)

1 and 2 DPO- weird pinching on right side of uterus that only lasted seconds each time but took my breath away each time


7 DPO- extreme back pain, couldn’t walk and had to use heating pad

8 DPO- woke up with painful pubic bone (like I had been hit in it)

9 DPO- same

10 DPO- sore pubic bone, cramps, achy hips more back pain but lower and slight nausea and none of these are PMS Symptoms so I thought, hmmmm maybe I am pregnant and test... BFN

11 DPO- I’m a stay at home mom so when my LO took a nap, I passed out for TWO HOURS!!! I never nap but thought it negative so I must be getting sick or trying to fight something bc I still felt nauseous on and off.
That night, had really weird pinching on the right side of my belly button

12 DPO- sleepless night. Can’t feel cervix, less crampy, lots of pinches in my uterus, still slightly nauseous

13 DPO- same exact symptoms. my brother was coming in from the Air Force and I wanted to have a drink with dinner so I tested. BFN

14 DPO- bright red spot and brown spotting and so crampy ( I definitely thought I was out bc I always spot a few days before every period) so I took Aleve and packed some maxi pads

15 DPO- no spotting only brown discharge when checking cervix which is weird bc I always get brown stuff in the toilet when peeing which spotting (sorry for the TMI but I always look for details when reading these posts!)

16 DPO- (BFP)SUPER CRAMPY. Back and hips but nothing in my from area where I normally would get cramps (thought ok, I know I’m getting my period, but if I don’t wake up with it I’ll test tomorrow) wellllll I had a cup of coffee at 2pm and by 3pm I thought I was gonna vomit everywhere. This was my first sign looking back when I was pregnant with my daughter. I went to the store, bought a test, used it in their bathroom, put it in my pocket and checked in the car. The blue dye was smudged and not even a control line showed. I went home and thought how if I were pregnant, I might not have to wait for FMU so I walked down to my local pharmacy, came home peed after only holding it for 1 hour and IMMEDIATELY BFP!!!!!!!! I was shaking and literally couldn’t believe it!

I wanted to share bc I SWORE I was getting my period. Yes I symptom spotted, but as a first timer I thought I was looking for things to feel, if that makes sense. I wrote all of this down so that next month when I tried, I would see it all happens every month.
When I fell pregnant with my daughter, we weren’t trying so I didn’t notice symptoms until I got a BFP and looked back at the two previous days and how coffee made me sick and my nipples hurt. So I thought for sure once my nipples hurt, then I would be pregnant. Wrong! Just crampy and slight nausea

Good luck to all if you ladies! Xxx

13 DPO-
