Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP at 10 DPO!!- First Month TTC!
I'm a little nervous about posting this because I know a lot of you have been TTCing for a while and I just happened to be lucky on the first go... A little backstory, I'm 24 and my DH is 27. I've been wanting to have a baby with him for years now (we'll have been together for 6 years in march) and he kept putting it off saying that we're not ready yet, we need to renovate the house I'm worried about your well being, etc... side note, when I was first dating my DH I was diagnosed with endometriosis and had a laparoscopy to get rid of it. I was told by my doctor I would have 5 years to conceive if that, which really scared both of us because we were in college! But we agreed if we got married then we would start trying before the "Deadline". 3 years later we got engaged, moved to Buffalo NY, bought a house and I was riddled with pain from my endometriosis again. I saw a fertility specialist this time and he took care of everything, and since I told him we were going to try for a family after marriage he checked to make sure my tubes were cleared too! He said that we could start trying whenever we wanted and we asked him about the deadline I was given. He said that I didn't have anything to worry about. So fast forward a year, finally around before Christmas time this year we decided to have "The Talk" again and this time he agreed that we can start trying in the new year!!! We had a lot of family over for the holiday so we decided to track my next cycle. I had been on BC for about 5 years skipping the placebos because of my endo, and I hadn't had a period in over a year so I had no idea what my cycle was. I tracked best I could and, Well I hate to say it but this was our first month actively trying and I got my BFP Today on a whim!! Since my estimated OV time my BB's have been killing me, so I told myself it's too early probably just the rise in progesterone. I was achy, headachy, fatigued, mildly crampy, (TMI) constipated, had heartburn and was extremely nauseous between 2dpo and 6dpo. Once again I thought there's no way that it could be a sign, it's too early! I started adding food aversions at 8dpo to the mix thinking my body just hates progesterone. Weird note, I was salivating a lot too which is not normal to me, I normally have a really dry mouth. The night before 10 dpo I had a really vivid dream that I was pregnant and I woke up today thinking I am going to take a HPT just for giggles. So I went to the dollar store and brought it home and took it thinking I was going to get a BFN, there's no way I'm that lucky, it's too early, it took everyone in my family months to conceive etc... When I looked at it I was shocked because there in front of me was a faint pink second line!! I was like What the Hell is that?! and kept looking at it not believing it! I then realized I needed to take more tests because it could be a false positive, so I took 4 more tests, including one CBD and they all came out pregnant!! I told my DH today by giving him the CBD pictured and his reaction was that he already knew that I was pregnant, with 85% certainty!! (I married an engineer hehe) and the scary part about this is that my mother told me in the summertime that I was going to get pregnant in January this year!! I can't believe that she was right! Here's hoping this little peanut sticks and good luck everyone with your TTC journeys :) Sticky rainbow Baby Dust to everyone!!!
