Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP at 10 DPO, 5 Months Post MC

I've been stalking these boards for months now and feel so lucky to have my own story to tell. The female body is truly amazing. After our MC, we took a couple months off to enjoy a much needed vacation and recover from the emotional trauma that comes with loss. We picked back up again in June and my cycle just felt off - longer than normal and OPKs showed that ovulation was anywhere from 10-18 days into my cycle. I bought an Ava Bracelet and started using it in July. No luck that month but I felt empowered having another tool to help us TTC. In August, DH and I went to Hawaii for a destination wedding and it just so happened to be during my fertile week (per Period Tracker/OPKs - Ava is still getting to know my cycle and had me ovulating a week later). When I realized my fertile week would line up with our trip, I decided to try SMEP as well. Can't hurt right? We packed the Pre-Seed, and plenty of OPKs and got down to business. The time change and wedding activities meant we messed up the schedule, but we still gave it our best shot: CD 8-BD CD 11 - BD CD 14- BD + Positive OPK CD 15 - BD + Positive OPK (pretty sure this was O day) CD 16 - BD 1-7 DPO - no symptoms at all. And my temps were all over the place per Ava. I was still jet lagged though, so it was hard to be sure of anything. 8 DPO - generally fatigued, not because of a time difference. 9 DPO - just felt kind of off - was hot all night before, didn't sleep well even though I was out late the night before, so I took a Wondfo test when I woke up and it was POSITIVE! Confirmed with a Dollar Store cheapie and a FRER. Mind blown. 10 DPO - HCG/Progesterone tested with Midwife - HCG:22/Progesterone 17.8. Going back in tomorrow for another set of lab work. 11 DPO - BFP on Wondfo and Dollar Store tests again. I know it's still early, and MC is still possible but I'm not going to deny myself the excitement and hope a BFP brings. Baby dust, luck and love to all of you.
