Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP at 11 dpo
Hi Everyone! I live for this site during the TWW so I had to post. We have been TTC #2 since November 2014. I felt so much less pressure this time around than the first time we TTC (DS is 17 months old), and I was prepared for it to take much longer as I'm 38 now. I'm still in a bit of disbelief, but it seems we have been blessed with another baby! I'm so grateful and just finished praying for a healthy pregnancy, and for all the mamas who are trying to get their BFPs. It will happen for you!!!
This month, we used the SMEP, Pre-seed (this was our first month using it this go-round--it worked for us last time too!), and I got acupuncture right at ovulation time. I can't recommend Pre-seed highly enough. That stuff is MAGIC! Here's the DPO breakdown:
CD 8: BD (per SMEP)
CD 10 BD
CD 11: +OPK BD
CD12: O day I think! BD
CD 13 BD
CD 14 BD
3-7 dpo: "Typical" 2ww symptoms: gassy, bloated, irritable, impatient ;) NO unusual CM or anything else of note.
8 dpo: Ungodly exhausted in the evening. Having a toddler is exhausting, so I didn't find this so out of the ordinary...but it was definitely tired on a new level, like going to sleep right after putting my son to bed at 7.
9 dpo: awakened in the night by SHARP stabbing pains right in the middle of my uterus. Actually took my breath away. Hmmm...I've experienced cramping in the 2ww before and not been pregnant, but that was weird.
10 dpo: Began feeling nauseous, sensitive to smells, still very very tired. I also started peeing like crazy. After the 3rd time I woke up in the night to pee (3 a.m. on 11 dpo), I decided to test, because I wasn't sleeping anyway. I was amazed to see a line on the FRER! I woke my poor husband up to show it to him. And I've been awake since then, praying and too excited to go back to sleep. :) I drank some more water and took a CBdigi--Pregnant 1-2 weeks! I give thanks for this blessing.
Best of luck and baby dust to all of you mamas trying. If you haven't tried Pre-seed, it can really do the trick! :)
