Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP 2 months trying!

So I wanted to post because this helped me so much during that awful wait. I had the Mirena iud removed in the beginning of January. Periods were regular by the end of February. 1-10 dpo- nothing at all felt more pregnant last month. 11 dpo I noticed a clear kind of white jelly like stretchy discharge. Thought this was weird because I didn’t have any of this the previous months and I was due for my period in 3 days 12 dpo pretty gassy and emotional. Had to pee more often then usual and wasn’t drinking all that much. Boobs sore but not terrible, definitely swollen. Usually my boobs really hurt right before my period so not weird for me. 13 dpo decided to test because of my discharge had me thinking I might be pregnant. BFP!!!! Used first response digital that I had left over from last month and couldn’t believe it. Had more “symptoms” when I wasn’t pregnant.

At this point, my BBs look the same as they were 6DPO and feel 10x better in general than I did CD16-19. Something I noticed is I feel like I spent way more time symptom spotting before I could have possibly had symptoms. Sometime around 5DPO I quit looking up symptoms, etc. because I just felt different and started experiencing things that were totally unfamiliar to me. I feel like everyone is different and someone else might experience a pregnancy symptom that is a normal PMS symptom for you, and vice versa. The things that tipped me off were things that were new to me (sore cervix, lighting crotch, nipples). I wouldn't completely rely on any single means of determining O. However, cervical mucus was the single best predictor of fertility in my case. In the future I will invest in digital OPKs as the cheap ones are impossible to interpret. I hope this helps! Ps. Although I wasn't shocked when I got my BFP, I am extremely surprised that we got pregnant the first cycle. My heart goes out to those that aren't as lucky. I will have my fingers crossed for you.
