Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Bfp after 16 months of not even a faint line!
I have stalked these boards so much over the past 16 months and found them so helpful so I wanted to add my story in case it helps someone else! My name is Beckie and I'm 31. DH and I have been trying for a baby for 16 months. We both had various tests and I was found to have hypothyroidism and diminished ovarian reserve. I was put on levothyroxine and after only one whole month of taking it I got my Bfp! Here are my symptoms! 1-8dpo Usually from ovulation I get cramping but this month I didn't have any. That was the first clue. 8+9dpo I had brown spotting - I usually spot closer to af so I think this was ib 10dpo lots of creamy cm which is quite unusual for me at this point 12dpo I was travelling by train and my motion sickness was really bad (this was another clue for me but I tried not to get too excited!). No sore breasts which was unusual. 13dpo still no sore breasts, just some sharp pains, still creamy cm and no spotting which was v unusual. Light cramps though which did feel similar to af cramps. 14 and 15dpo af style cramps continue but they are light, creamy cm, still no spotting and noticed that I was thirsty and going to the loo more often. 16dpo - due on - still no af or spotting and lots of creamy cm so I decided to test and bfp! It came up while I was still peeing on the stick! Since then I'm now 5 weeks 4 days the af style cramps have continued but are getting less frequent. I've also had some backache. I'm exhausted and my boobs are very sore and seem to have already doubled in size! I'm also c bloated! I'm so happy and so is DH. Just hoping with the added complication of my hypothyroidism that everything works out. Hope my story helps someone!
