Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP 3rd cycle after miscarriage

Back in June, I got my first ever BFP after 11 months of ttc. It had taken so long that I had already convinced myself something was wrong and started thinking about making appointments with a fertility clinic. We were thrilled! Unfortunately that ended in a MMC in late July (though I eventually needed a D&C to finish the job in August).
I've had two periods since then and I noticed something surprising. ALL my PMS symptoms were gone. I typically had all the symptoms: sore/huge boobs, cramps, fatigue, bloating, constipation, intense mood swings, etc. It made symptom spotting while TTC maddening. With my first BFP, the only out of the ordinary early symptom I had was cramping that never turned into spotting.

This time round, I wasn't sure what to look for. My symptoms: I started getting SLIGHTLY sore boobs, mild cramping, and constipation (boo!) a couple of days ago (DPO 9 and 10). The cramping is on and off and sometimes feels more pointed than period cramp. I thought either my PMS is creeping back or..... I was charting my temps both times I had a BFP as well and this time I had a clear third temp shift. My temps the past 3 days have been higher than my normal luteal phase temps. The only other weird thing is that I dreamed not once, but twice that I was pregnant during this TWW.

I was going to make myself wait until tomorrow (12dpo) to test, but I had some Wondfos lying around and couldn't help myself. BFP!!! Not a squinter, either! I have lots of conflicting emotions (joy, fear, caution) but I hope and pray this is my rainbow baby! I told my husband immediately, since I have no poker face, but we're not telling anyone else this time around until we're much farther along. This will have to be my outlet!
