Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP After AF
I am 30 and DH is 28. We have been TTC since May 2013. I last got AF July 18 (with a 26-29 day cycle) and decided I needed to try new things. I used OPK strips and got a positive result on cycle day 12 (July 29). We BD that cycle on July 26, 29 and 30 and then again on August 2.
On CD 21 (9 dpo) I was tired and yawning earlier than normal and had a headache that lasted for a few days. I started testing on CD 23 (11 dpo) and all were BFN. On CD 27 AF came (August 13). It was medium but pretty normal seeming. However, there were no cramps. AF lasted until August 19. For about 4 days it was pretty light and at the end it was like mucus slimy AF.
On what I thought was CD 8 of a new cycle (August 20) but I suppose is really CD 34 of last cycle...I did my new Clearblue OPK and it was a smily (solid) right away. I also took a OPK strip and it was a for sure positive result. I thought wow, how can I have ovulation this early??? I was feeling weird about it so I decided to take a pg test last night, or 10 tests lol. They all showed a positive result - all different brands and types.
I didn't have much in the way of symptoms except those headaches and being tired and having nausea waves... but I was attributing all of any symptoms to AF... so I wasn't paying much attention. This is SO odd for me. Nothing like this happened with my first two. I surely missed my AF with the first two.
I finally have my BFP!!! This will be #3 and we couldn't be happier.
I'm super nervous that I was bleeding last week (but right on time like AF). My doctor appointment is at the end of September (ah!) but the nurse was going to talk to the doctor to see if they wanted blood work done to check levels because of the bleeding that occurred - she also said it's normal to have an AF while pg... so who knows... but I'm so nervous.
Let's hope it's a sticky bean that we get to meet in April! Baby dust to all of you!
