Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP at 11DPO!
My husband and I have been TTC our 1st and finally got our BFP on our 3rd time at 11DPO! I have no known fertility issues and have a very regular cycle. This is such a neat website and since I stalked it for about 90 days straight, I thought I should send my symptoms in as well! So here are all the juicy details:
1DPO - Stuffy nose, sneezing, watery allergy eyes, and a small backache. Temps at 97.29F
2DPO - Stuffy nose, coughing, sore throat, pain in armpit and yet another backache. Temps at 97.48F.
3DPO - Woke up with a headache, sore throat, cough, some uterine area cramps, dizziness, backache, yellowish CM, sharp but mild stabbing pain on left side of right breast, toothache. Temps at 98.16F
4DPO - Poking in right side of uterus area. sore throat, stuffy nose, tired, headache. Temps at 98.21F (still climbing? WTH?)
5DPO - Cold symptoms like crazy, Fertility Friend moved my crosshairs to CD16 for ovulation and we had stopped BD by then - crap. I'm out. :( Still wondering about the high temps though and not convinced the website is correct. Digging pain in uterus, heartburn, nausea, tired, toothache (like wisdom teeth are coming in), possible low-grade fever (?). Temps at 98.62 (HIGHEST EVER!)
6DPO - Have a cold, feverish but no fever, temp spike (Implantation, Triphasic, Fever? WHO KNOWS!), shooting breast pain, AF-like cramps early then gone, extremely tired (because I'm sick?), nausea, headache, some EWCM, insomnia (2am and 5am - UGH). Temps at 98.58F
7DPO - FF keeps moving my crosshairs - SO confused, decided to stick with my gut (and hope) that O Day was CD14 and not CD15-16 like FF says, temps down slightly today, still have a cold, Ab muscles feel like Ive done 1000 situps but I think they are sore from coughing, sticky/creamy CM, SO EXHAUSTED, AF-like cramps off and on, sore gums, heartburn, weird electrical sensations down "there", insomnia (AGAIN) at 2am and 5am. Temps at 98.32.
8DPO - toothache, tired, no CM then slightly creamy in afternoon, congested, coughing, temp up slightly, nervous tummy in morning, dream of BFP!!!!, irritable, full feeling fast then nausea, NASTY taste in mouth that will NOT go away no matter what I do (metallic?). Temps at 98.43.
9DPO - possible implantation dip on FF chart this morning, toothache, breasts SORE when touched, crampy, loose stools, BAD taste in mouth again, sour stomach, slight nausea, dizzy, "wet" feeling down "there", congestion, coughing, dried blood in nose (maybe?). Temps at 97.99.
10DPO - Crap. I definitely don't FEEL preggers anymore... Oh well, just waiting for AF and another month of trying. FF must have been right on as usual with my O Day. Some AF cramps, temps up but only a little, dried blood in nose, toothache, breast tender when touched, backache, hips sore, gassy. Temps at 98.10.
11DPO (THE BFP DAY!) - Temps back up (yay) - usually they have started going down for AF now!, creamy CM, "feel" preggers again, sensitive gums, strong urge to pee early in morning but not much comes out when I go, then I have to go bad again 30 mins later, bbs sore, full and sharp pains through them, HUNGRY (OMG hungry as HECK as soon as I wake up, and I'm not a breakfast person!), loose stools, AF Cramps. Temps at 98.43. Decide to test late in the evening after returning from an overnight trip and sure enough a BFaintP!!!! Dollar Store brand ... not convinced, but hopeful. Will try again in the morning
12DPO - crampy, gassy, loose stools, toothache, congestion, tummy bubbles, backache. Temps at 98.15. Tested twice and a darker BFP on Dollar Store test in the morning and a clear and bright BFP on an Equate test that afternoon! I'm PREGNANT!!!!!!! :) Praying for a sticky bean!
I guess after all that has happened in the past 2 weeks, my biggest signs were the breast tenderness (which I never get), the creamy CM (I'm usually completely dry after Oday), and the odd twinges/cramps that were slightly different than AF. Honestly, thought I was out and had more symptoms during the 2 months I wasn't pregnant. All the glory to GOD!!!
