Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP 38 Years Old!

I'm so excited and thankful to be able to share my BFP story! I have a 7 yr old girl who took us about 1.5 years to conceive. We never actively TTC'd for a second but didn't prevent either for the last 4 years. Last July I was surprised and excited to find out I was pregnant but we lost the baby at 17 weeks in October. I was tested and found out I have a clotting disorder that probably caused the loss. We've been actively TTC since then, using OPKs, BBT charting, etc. It took us 4 months and now here we are! We DTD 6 out of 7 of my fertile days. Here are my symptoms: 1-7 DPO: Nothing much except vivid dreams but I always get that in my luteal phase. 8DPO: Feeling very irritable, thinking I'm having PMS and am out. 9DPO: Cramping, one small spot of pinkish red discharge when I wipe. Think I'm starting to spot and cramp early since those are normal AF symptoms for me. 10DPO: Cramping slows, no spotting. Feel pretty good, not typical for me at this stage. Also temps have been staying up when I usually start dipping on 10 DPO. I start feeling hopeful! 11DPO: Temp rises .3, no spotting, no cramping. Take an HPT and get a faint but solid positive! 12 DPO: Take another HPT, line is darker! Feel great today! No symptoms at all. (My last pregnancy, I didn't have symptoms until 6 weeks.) Plan to call my doc tomorrow. She said I'll have to be on Lovenox this pregnancy after i have an ultrasound to verify a viable pregnancy. Not look ing forward to that but hopeful it'll help to get a healthy baby in 9 months! Good luck to all of you!

just curious, what clotting issue do you have? I've lost two and I have PAI-1 and MTHFR
