Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP after IUD
Let's start this story when I got the Mirena three years ago and got it removed on July 2015. DH 29, me 24. DH and I began baby dancing and trying to conceive our first child--We did it religiously and after 5 months of no bfp, we decided to stop trying so hard following the sperm meets egg plan. We made the transition to not trying, but not preventing. I was tired of stressing and obsessing over every ingle detail of my menses while Ttc. Each month I would get teased thinking I would get a BFP because my boobs were getting swollen and tender about three days before the witch and I would get really tired. Mind you, I never had Boob growth or boob tenderness before my menses prior to getting the Mirena so these were new symptoms to me. I learned that I cannot trust my new Menses symptoms because they always lead to the witch and not pregnancy. I also cannot rely on congestion or similar symptoms because I suffer from chronic allergies. I stopped using ovulation strips because of my lost hope and my ovulation hasn't been easy to predict after getting the IUD removed without the strips but it typically occurs day 12. It is truly a blessing that I got a BFP this cycle. My cycles average 24 days
3/15- suspected o based on luteal phase, no ewcm
3/16- BD, cervix low, wet
3/21- implantation bleed?? I had the tiniest streak of pale pink discharge on the toilet paper
3/22- random bought of tachycardia at work for no reason around 11am where my HR was in the 120s. Very atypical for me
3/24- breast tenderness happens. The witch must be coming!
3/25- my boobs are so squishy. They feel like water balloons instead of my typical instant firm temporary boob job.
3/26- bad GERD at night-- never happens for me
3/27- anticipated witch, doesn't show. GERD again that night
3/28- didn't POAS with FMU because afraid witch was going to show. Woke up at 7:30a, had to urinate by 10- atypical for me. Decided to hold it a little longer and POAS at 11:30 with a BFP!!! In a lot of ways I think deep down I knew because all of these symptoms above were atypical from my norm-- the gerd, elevated HR, squishy boobs. We are absolutely ecstatic over here. Fingers crossed for a sticky bean and baby dust to you all!!
