Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP after two long years
I've never been pregnant, I'm 33 and we've been trying for two years and month. Six months ago DH had a varicocele surgery and it worked! In two more days it'll be our second anniversary so it couldn't have come at a more exciting time. We even tried four IUIs and they didn't work. This was natural. I had just about given up hope and these stories helped me through the two year rollercoaster of hope and despair. Please hang in there. If it can happen to me it can happen to you. 2dpo - Spotting. I often get spotting during O and read it was common for it to happen up to two days afterwards. 3dpo- Started cramping at night. Emotional. Slightly sore nipples, like deeper in the tissue. I've never had nipple tenderness before. 4dpo- Woke up and 3am and couldn't get back to sleep for an hour and a half. High sex drive (normal for luteal phase, especially as AF approaches). 5dpo- Period-like cramps in the morning. High sex drive. Feeling dazed. Feel like I'm getting a cold and VERY tired. 6dpo- Sore bbs. 7dpo- Sore bbs. Mild cramps for a few minutes. Very tired. 8dpo- Very tired. It feels like I've been hit by a truck and coffee does nothing. Tension or sinus-type headache. Wet feeling down there. Mildly sore bbs. Little bumps on bottom lip (they went away so maybe just a coincidence). 9dpo- Sore bbs. Slept 9.5 hours and still tired. Constantly cold. Bad sinus or tension type headache. Nose tickling like the beginning of a cold. 10dpo- LOTS OF ENERGY!!! 11dpo- All appetite gone. I'm ordinarily a really hungry person, especially this close to AF. Wet down there which is pretty normal around now. Spotting in the evening when I wiped. Probably AF coming since I usually spot beforehand. Made fish for dinner and was so grossed out I couldn't eat it. High sex drive. 12dpo- Blood-tinged CM when I wiped in the morning. AF due tomorrow and disappointed. Sex drive through the roof (normal). For whatever reason I'm like a walking vagina this close to AF and this was no different. 13dpo- AF due today or tomorrow. I think today but my app says tomorrow. One big glob of stretchy, tacky, brown-tinged CM in the evening. All other spotting gone. Smells! This one room I was in smelled like rotting salad. Nobody else thought so. 14dpo- I either missed my period or my app was right and I'm supposed to get it today. A little bit of YELLOW CM when I wiped (that was nothing I'd ever seen in all two years). Bbs a little sore but not much. I'm a social dancer. This one guy I was dancing with almost made me puke because he smelled like he just downed a huge glass of milk and it was exuding from his breath and pores. It was unbearable. The bathroom smelled like it was magnified by 20. I'm like clockwork and AF a no-show. I took a pregnancy test and I thought I saw a faint line. Just to make sure my eyes weren't playing tricks I ran out and got a digital. My husband and I hugged and cried when we saw the positive result.
