Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP 4.5 months after Mirena Removal
I am 36 and I had my Mirena removed January 3rd, 2014, after having it for 4 years after DS was born.
We wanted to wait for a due date in or after Jan 2015 (trying in April), but ended up “not trying, not preventing” right away.
First cycle of actual “trying” in April broke my heart when I started my period again on CD16….I don’t think I ovulated.
April 27th (CD 2) started B-50 to lengthen my cycle and Early Primrose for more abundant CM since I have been pretty lacking in that department and it WORKED!!!! Tons of EWCM on CD 9-10!
I believe I need help with my progesterone and will again after baby is born so I planned on trying Vitex next cycle, but got my BFP before I could!
My LMP was April 26, 2014 BFP: May 17th, 2014 (9dpo) EDD: January 31, 2014 (Aiming for Jan 29th – MIL birthday since I may have to have a repeat C-Section! Haha)
Things I did for my BFP:
Tempted – even on the weekends alarm set for 5:30am. Temps stay elevated from 6 DPO, dipped 9DPO and went back up 10DPO (I knew this may be it then!)
OPK’s: CD 12!!! (Didn’t have one last cycle!)
Pre-Seed – Just for lube, did not use applicator. (CD 10 & CD 13 – Helped with the mix of EWCM)
Soft-Cup – CD 10 & CD 12
CM: (C – CD7- 8) (EWCM - CD 9-11) (W - CD 12-13)
CM: DPO (C – 1 DPO – 11 DPO ) Loads on 4 – 7 DPO) (Stringy white CM 6-7DPO)
BD’ed : CD 9, CD 10, CD 12 & CD 13– (Trying to sway <3 boy <3)
********Fertility Friend pinpointed ovulation using advanced method on CD 13******
1 DPO - 3 DPO – Nothing. Not feeling pregnant this time at all. When I usually think every month I am. I don’t think I timed BDing right at all. (BUT in the past I thought I was dead on with the timing)
4 DPO - 5 DPO – AF Cramps, major bloating and BACKACHE (hurts bad enough on 5DPO to take Tylenol)
6 DPO – 7 DPO – Really creamy, but STRINGY WHITE discharge. A lot more on 6 DPO
7DPO *IMPLANTATION* – Extremely CRAMPY! Like if this isn’t implantation, I wouldn’t know what is! RIGHT SIDE is where I believe I implanted! Going to be cool to find out!
8DPO – Cramps have subsided. Took a WONDFO HPT in evening after work. Was a “is there or is there not something there?” I doubted it because it was shadow and I have had an evap from them before.
9DPO – BFP (SOOOO light) on TWO Wondfo’s (FMU and SMU) NEGITIVE on the FRER, so I was still not sure and not getting my hopes up! (A little questionable ligament pulling???)
10DPO – VV LIGHT PINK BFP on a FRER and WONDFO!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOO HOOO! Lots of ligament pulling!!! Extremely fatigued! Digital is still negative.
11DPO – Nice BRIGHT PINK BFP on FRER and Wondfo is nice and dark! Not taking a digital until this weekend to let HCG build up!
Labs are tomorrow and first Prenatal appointment is June 26th at 3pm! Praying for a healthy, sticky bean!
