Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP after 4 years ttc
I really can't believe I'm here writing this, I've visited this site so many times looking at symptoms, hoping one day I'd be able to write my story.
I'm 36 and have been ttc for 3 years 11 months, I have polycystic ovaries and hubby has a few issues too. I started ttc April 2013 after having the implant removed. Yesterday I finally saw those magical 2 lines we all dream about. I stopped buying pregnancy tests, I got fed up of seeing one line, refused to test until after i was late but something felt different this time. I don't have much in the way of symptoms but the few I have had have been strong. So here we go.....
26.1.17... af arrived
12.2.17... cd18, no sign of ovulation, dtd then bang, half hour later I felt my little egg pop
18.2.17... 6dpo, I had a very sharp pain in my left side, it lasted approx half hour. Didn't think too much of it at the time but I remember it pulling and being sharp.
22.2.17... 10dpo, woke feeling full of a cold, snotty and bunged up, I wasn't ill with it and as the day went on I put it down to hayfever as I usually start with it this time of year. Antihistamines didn't touch it either and that was strange.
23.2.17... 11dpo. Again I felt bunged up all day but not as bad as the previous day. I had what felt like ovulation pains on and off all day, unusual for me, I don't get pre-af pains, they only kick in when she's already arrived. They were pretty strong too, had me grasping my tummy a few times. I also store my phone in my bra but everytime I put it in my boob felt tender to the touch. That night taking of my bra was awful, my boobs were tender to the touch and so achey, this was the first time I thought there may be a possibility I was pregnant.
24.2.17... BFP!!! 12dpo, I had no pregnancy tests in and had one opk left. I decided to do my opk and it was about half way to positive, I've never had a dark opk before af. I went shopping after lunch and bought a cheap pack of asda tests. I took the test and I saw a faint but definite line appear within a couple of minutes. I couldn't believe my eyes. I saved my sample and rushed out and bought a frer and cb digi. As soon as I got home I ripped open the frer, dipped and in less than a minute there was a pink line, again I ripped open the digi and it seemed like a lifetime it was flashing then up popped PREGNANT 1-2. my nose has cleared a bit but my boobs still ache and had af cramps on and off
25.2.17... BFP. I had to retest so did my other frer, the line is much darker than yesterday and it's only been 12 hours. I'm now sat here writing this and have ov type pains again in my right side and feel a bit sicky but not sure if that's all in my mind haha.
Good luck to anyone ttc, don't lose hope, I nearly did but now I'm expecting a new baby in time for christmas!!
