Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP after 2 yrs 5mths TTC, early MC in 2013 and diagnosis of mod-severe endo in Jan
I'm still not quite believing it! BFP with FMU this am. AF not actually due til tomorrow according to FF. Positive also confirmed today with blood test. I was feeling crampy and PMS like symptoms and was sure I was going to see yet another BFN... I only tested as I take progesterone to stop early spotting before AF after O and wanted to be sure of a BFN before stopping it. BFP popped straight up after a min. I'll be staying on the progesterone now!
This cycle according to temping I ovulated in cycle day 12. I usually feel ovulation cramps but this month they weren't as obvious to me (O varies from day 12-16)
I can't do a day by day symptoms post O, as I was trying not to obsess but certain stand outs were;
Temp dip on charting on day 6 PO with watery CM noted-? Implantation
Emotional breakdown including rant and cry to my husband day 7 PO, temps rose
I had heart burn all last week which made me feel off/very mildly nauseous in bed (unusual for me)
Further temp rise today 14 PO when it usually starts to dip and then BFP!
For TTC I have been having acupuncture with herbs and cinnamon tea (to increase bbt) for a good year now. We have used sperm friendly lubricant and I have stayed in bed for as long as possible after BD. BD every other day or day in my fertile window. I have been taking prenatal vitamins, vit b, vit d, folic acid and coenzyme q10 (dr and acupuncturist recommended). I had a stint of yoga at one stage too.
I can't pinpoint what the secret was this month...I was told I would be more fertile after a lap procedure in Jan but as I had had a few cycles and BFN I think I had accepted IVF might be the only option due to my mod-severe endo. I was booked in for an IVF consult in 2 weeks! I can't say I was more relaxed, being particularly healthy with diet or exercise or not looking at forums or this site in my 2WW...
I wish everyone good luck and baby dust and keep your fingers and toes crossed this is our rainbow baby xxoo
