Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP after 4 months TTC along with Ovarian cyst surgery and removal!
Gahhh I am still so excited after finally getting that BFP after 4 months of TTC. Here's a bit of backstory. This is my second pregnancy after conceiving and giving birth to a healthy baby boy in 2013. I had Mirena implanted 6 weeks after he was born and took it out this August after two years because I was experiencing some not so nice side effects like weight gain, and painful periods. After i took it out the pain did not go away and my OB found a huge grapefruit sized cyst on my right ovary. She knew we were ttc and recommended we put it on hold for a month so I could have surgery. I was so disappointed. They ended up removing the cyst and also my right ovary and tube completely. I was so nervous I would't be able to have a baby even though my OB assured me that there were no issues. I had such intense periods and PMS after my Mirena removal that I thought I was pregnant every month. Finally this month (December) I decided to relax and let things happen if they are meant too. We still had sex when I ovulated etc... but my symptoms were a little different. Below is a rough timeline.
O Day-I have a 28 day cycle and with an OPK I confirmed ovulation on CD 14. But more than that I actually felt ovulation pain, sharp pains that were not at all unbearable on my left side.
1-5dpo- sore boobs (but i always get that with O)
6-8 dpo- I didn't feel anything at all besides some breast sensitivity and nipple tingling. This feeling of "nothing" was one of my first indicators as I usually start experiencing PMS symptoms that mirror pregnancy symptoms by now.
9dpo- Very very very obvious implantation pains, it felt like a sharp pain going into my Vagina from the outside. Nothing unbearable, but definitely there, did not resemble normal cramping at all. Very suspicious after this.
10-11 dpo- Really hungry but cannot each much at all. Craving Mexican food so bad. Also very thirsty. I workout 3-4 times a week and had to stop and chug water way more than usual.
12dpo- saw a picture on Facebook of my friends newborn baby and decided to test with a Clearblue hpt, I got a very faint positive and ran to the store where I was able to confirm with a Early Response test (the kind with the pink lines)
13dpo- Confirmed again with a Clearblue test.
I am so excited guys! I wanted to make sure that I posted here for anyone who has any questions. I scoured these boards for months and promised myself I would publish my story when it finally happened :) Baby dust to everyone!
