Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP after 5 months 15dpo.

After 5 months of TTC #1 I finally got my BFP :) Oddly enough I didn't put any effort into temping or OPKs this month as I just felt I needed a break as I was feeling quite frustrated/exhausted. The lack control really got to me. We BDd a couple days during the fertile window, but not nearly to the degree that we usually do.

I didn't temp or use OPKs this month, but I DID do something different that may have helped. I'm a bit anemic, so I took Floradix which is a liquid iron/B vitamin supplement. I took it daily for a week leading up to my suspected O date and then stopped because I got lazy. It may have helped. I also drank raspberry leaf tea in the weeks leading up to O.

As for symptoms, I had all of my usual PMS symptoms, but I noticed a couple things that were different. 10/11 dpo I noticed yellow cm. It lasted about a day, but up until that point I totally didn't think I had a chance. I've read that yellow cm is a common sign and I've never had it while TTC. I also had sore boobs, but the soreness was very much on the sides. AF like cramps have come and gone aswell from 10dpo onwards.

I finally decided to test today at what I think is 15dpo. Since I didn't temp I don't know my exact O date, but the thoughts started to consume me, so I caved and bought a FRER. The second line came up almost instantly.

Hope this helps anyone looking for a little insight. I know I'm constantly stalking these stories looking for similar signs and situations. I hope the little bean sticks :) Baby dust to all xoxox!
