Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP after 2 years of trying!
I have PCOS, and man was it a roller coaster trying to get pregnant. This month, I'll tell you everything we changed, we changed a lot of things, so not sure which one exactly helped us. Here it goes
My husband quit smoking 3 months ago.
This month, he had given up alcohol for lent and I'd given up sweets. (no processed sugar)
We used the last of our pre-seed
I drank red raspberry leaf tea every day this month
We've been consistently exercising the past 2 months, and I have lost nearly 20 lbs.
We have sex EVERY day after my period ended. Every day. That way, we wouldn't miss ovulation.
Now for symptoms.
During Ovulation, I had intense sex drive. I wanted to hump my hubby all day lol sorry TMI, usual ovulation cramps, and some sore boobs that only lasted 2 days.
1-9 DPO nothing really a little backache, occasionally, but that's normal for me, so I ignored it. The thing that stood out during this time was insanely vivid dreams, not about being pregnant, just in general.
10 DPO, I noticed that my CM wasn't drying up like normal, and that it was kind of a creamy watery mix, and there was a lot of it (this continues today). I also experienced a kind of flushing of my face on and off for the next few days. Little insomnia. Spotting, though AF was on the way, but then nothing for the rest of the day or subsequent days.
11 DPO My breasts started to feel full, again not unusual, no pain just full, and I was exhausted. I was tentative to say this was a symptom, because we've had some long days while moving, but man was I pooped. Fullness in my lower abdomen like I've never really felt. It was almost like it was full and firmer than the rest of my tummy.
12 DPO I was so tired again, incredibly thirsty. I couldn't get enough water which is strange because I keep pretty well hydrated, I had a backache, dizziness in the afternoon, and my boobs were sore. I also noticed my actual nipples seemed to be a little wider and more perky than usual.
13 DPO, I finally took a test middle of the day with no hold, and I got a positive immediately! So excited to tell hubby!
