Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP after 3 months ttc.. Clearblue Fertility monitor, Preseed& Evening Primrose Oil
I got my BFP last Saturday after trying for 3 months. I have been stalking this site for the last few months when i have been on my tww and it gaveme hope so i wanted to share my story with you all. it can happen. I am 32 and my husband 40.
We have been using the Clearblue Fertility monitor for the last 3 months. This month for the first time we used Preseed and i also took Evening Primrose oil for the first half of my cycle. ( you have to stop once you ovuilate otherwise it can cause contractions in your uterus)
I ovulated on the Friday and we bd'd on the previous Weds, Thurs and Saturday.
Here are my symptoms in the weeks following -
0 - 3DPO - Nothing
3DPO - 8 DPO - cramps like period pains. Very vivid dreams, both bizarre and scary. Slight back ache. Also full of cold. I would wake up every morning so bunged up and would have to blow my nose a few times. Plus sneezing all day. I put this down to my husband just having had a cold but i didnt feel ill, i was just sneezing and nose running a lot.
8DPO - Just for the hell of it i did a hpt - BFN.
9PO - did another one - faint line..! I thought my brain was playing tricks on me so i called my husband to have a look and he also could see somehting. I tested again a few hours later and again another faint line!
10DPO - woke at 4.30am and couldnt wait any longer so got up and did another with first urine of the day. Another BFP but line still quite faint.
Later on in the day i bought a Clear blue didgital and got a BFP 1-2 weeks!! Over the 2 weeks i had no noticeable change in CM whatsoever.
i am convinced that the difference this month was down to the preseed.
I am now 2 days past by AF due date and i still have the cramps. Sometimes in one particular place but other times just all round period like cramps. I am STARVING when i wake up in the morning which is very unusual for me and am hungry for most of the morning.
I still feel like i have got a cold ( i have since read it is somehting to do with your mucus membranes swelling due to the increase blood flow around your body).
I also have slight nausea but nothing serious yet!
It is still early days so hope it stick.
Good luck to you all...
