Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP after miscarriage- lots of symptoms I've never had!
I had a mc on January 2nd at 8 weeks and got a BFP after late ovulation on the first cycle trying. I had 5 days of ewcm, painful ovaries, and cramping but only barely positive OPKS around normal ovulation time. Once they stopped, I had horribly painful right ovary, especially during sex. I thought it was a cyst or a sign the egg released because I've read after a miscarriage, normally non painful things could become more painful and noticeable. 2 days later, all the ovulation signs came back but were 10x worse, including the "cyst" pain. This time I got a blazing positive OPK! 5 more days passed of symptoms, then my cervix dropped and hardened. I felt bummed because if it stayed up, I'd feel more hopeful that I'd get a BFP. But 2 days later it rose! I still felt a little like we missed it because I was tricked by the first round of ovulation symptoms and we stopped BD for a couple days. BUT, like with my other pregnancies, all of a sudden it was like a wave came over me and made me feel entirely different. I knew I was pregnant and took an HPT 8dpo, March 1, and a faint positive showed. I've taken one every day since and the line is still there! Here are my symptoms: "fake" ovulation week: 5 days of ewcm, right ovary twinges, high and open cervix, -OPKs real ovulation week: 5 days of ewcm, lots of right ovary pain, what I thought was cyst pain, high and open (but not as much as the week before) cervix. 2 days of +OPKs 1dpo: the "cyst" pain FINALLY went away. This is how I know I finally ovulated. -OPK 2dpo: ewcm drying up, high and soft cervix, ovary twinges and abdomen cramps 3dpo: ewcm drying up, low and hard cervix, ovary twinges and abdomen cramps 4dpo: totally dry cm, low and hard cervix, lots of ovary twinges and abdomen cramps 5dpo: cervix rose and softened, totally dry cm, TONS of ovary pain and cramps (implantation?) 6dpo: high and soft cervix, totally dry cm, ovary pain fading 7dpo: high and soft cervix, cm becoming watery and more abundant, no more ovary pain 8dpo: high and soft cervix, more watery cm but not too much, hit with an "I'm pregnant" flash while shopping. FIVE +HPTs! I needed to make sure :) 9dpo: high and soft cervix, lots of watery cm, +HPT, exhausted 10pdo: cervix lowered, hardened, and it feels opened (what?!) nervous it will end.. tons of cm, sore boobs start, exhausted 11dpo: cervix rose again and softened, tons of cm, sore boobs, so tired i feel like I've been hit by a train 12dpo: stopped checking cervix because it was driving me crazy, increasingly sore and slightly swollen boobs, TIRED, and tons of slippery cm! I am feeling moody and snapping at people when I normally wouldn't, trouble sleeping 13dpo: sore and swollen boobs. hurts to wear a bra. lots of cm, tired! have the "just woke up" feeling all morning Good luck to everyone!
