Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP at 14 DPO Baby #3!
I am so excited to be sharing my BFP story! So I wasn’t really stalking this site this time around, because it is my third baby and I have had my children pretty close together. I would love to share my story. So first of all in 2012 I got a cyst surgery that left me wondering if I would have children. I got married in May 2013 (so 7 months after surgery) and then got pregnant within the first two months of marriage. I then had my second child when my first was 7 months old AND I was breastfeeding. I never even had a cycle. It was crazy.
So this time. I got off the mini pill when my second was 6 months old. I was EBF and still feeding him A LOT (every 3 hours). He ate 6 times at night until he was 10 months old. It was a tough time. I never knew if I was ovulating or if I was pregnant. I kept testing, because I had NO idea. Since I wasn’t ovulating I had REALLY high progesterone levels so I had pregnancy symptoms for 5 months ALL the time! It was awful! I finally had my first cycle when my son was 11 months old. I didn’t get pregnant the first ovulation, but I only had one period.
My husband and I BD’d on August 16, 17, 18 and 19 (we had a fun couple of days haha). I got a positive OPK on August 20. My husband and I were taking a big trip with my whole family so we couldn’t BD on the 20th-27th so we were just hoping we were successful.
I didn’t notice anything different until last weekend.
On August 27::: 7 DPO: I usually don’t just lose my cool but everything that my DH was saying was SO annoying. He was trying to help and I just was getting so mad at him!
8 DPO: I put on my DH’s shirt and I said, “how do I look” and then hubby said “Missy that is my shirt.” He was completely joking. And I started crying.
9/10: I was peeing a lot! I have had a sweet tooth.
11: BFN! Aww Sad!! I couldn’t sleep on my tummy because it felt full and puffy. SUPER SUPER TIRED!!!!
12: BFN: But thought I saw a line (but you know how our eyes trick us)! SOOOO TIRED!!!!!!!!!!
13: BFN! But I just thought I was pregnant. Even though I got a BFN! I drove to Walmart and got a Test and Confirm First Response Test. BFN! Achy boobs on the outside: like a heartbeat! Felt like I was going to start my period. Crampy!
14: Woke up EXHAUSTED! Weird Dream! Decided what the heck! Took a the Digital FRER and walked away. I came back and it said YES +!!!!!!!! I still can’t believe it!! Cervix high, closed and hard!
