Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP at 38 and 5 years TTC!

I got my first ever BFP this morning.

I'm still in disbelief. Years ago I was TTC with my ex, and I was temping, using preseed, using ovulation monitors etc.. and nothing. Blood tests revealed slightly under active thyroid function (non Hashimoto's) and I was put on synthroid... still nothing. My ex and I eventually split up and then my current partner and I began trying about a year ago. I didn't expect anything to happen. About 6 months ago I went to a new doctor (naturopath) because I moved, and he did a very thorough intake checkup, with blood test, urine analysis and saliva. He told me my progesterone levels were quite low. He also diagnosed me with reactive hypoglycemia and SIBO (small intestine bacteria overgrowth). About 3 months after that, I went on a high protein, high full fat, very low card diet and began eating probiotic foods daily. I cut back on the alcohol and limited caffeine to 1 cup of coffee or tea per day. All this to try and correct my digestive issues, not to conceive (though we were not preventing)! Got my BFP on day af was due this month! I had some strange cm yesterday and today, yellowish/light brown in color, and decided to test. Other than that, no unusual symptoms. I spotted around ovulation, but am not sure when exactly I ovulated b/c I stopped temping a long time ago and that has also happened to me before.

I really think that the probiotics and zinc supplementation (whole food grade/raw) had an enormous impact on my hormone balance.

I hope this little bean sticks! But the fact that I actually conceived is a true miracle and if it can happen to me, it can happen to you. Baby dust!!
