Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP at 12 DPO!!!
I am so happy to be posting on this site!! I have been stalking it for 1.5 years. Some background- My husband and I have been married for 4 years and started trying for baby 1 about a year and a half ago. I didn't go nuts, just started tracking my cycles by checking CM. After a couple of months I realized I had really inconsistent cycles, ranging from 35-45 days. I then tried OPKs, but got frustrated because I would get a positive, but then wouldn't ovulate for several days, sometimes a week. After 6 months of trying and getting really frustrated, I went to the doc. They did blood tests to check hormones and an ultrasound to check for cysts and everything was normal. My husband went for tests as well, and found that his sperm count was a little low and motility was slightly abnormal, but doc wasnt overly concerned. Just in case, he was prescribed Clomid. Then, in Feb of 2014, I slipped on ice and tore my ACL and meniscus. I needed surgery and lots of rehab, so the baby making was on hold for a while. I started tracking my cycles again in June after I started feeling sort of normal again, and was shocked that I now had a 28 cycle. From June until now, its been like clockwork. I attributed it to weight loss (I've lost almost 40lbs since March). This was our first month trying again, and it worked!! I should also mention that we only BDed once this cycle bc my husband was sick. Here's the good stuff- O day- feeling good :) 1-2 DPO- Nothing 3 DPO- I was walking through the hall of the school I work at and suddenly everything felt like it was spinning. I had to stop for a second until it passed. 4-5 DPO- Nothing 6-7 DPO- period cramps and a spot of blood in my undies. I started getting suspicious. 8-12 DPO- boobs sore, continued mild cramping, dull headaches, watery CM, lightheadedness, HUNGRY, and my husband says I'm moody, but I dont see it :) I am super excited and really hopeful that this little bean sticks. Good luck out there to all the couples trying!!
