BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP at 9dpo after 4 cycles while breastfeeding

I always read these stories a lot when I was in the TTW, it was such a nice way to pass time and get hopeful. I always told myself I would add mine when I got a BFP because I didn't with my first. I have long cycles and didn't ovulate until CD25! I changed it up a bit this month by using pre-seed and soy isoflavones and having sex every other day from the end of my period until confirmed ovulation. We should have done the day after ovulation as well, but we were too tired lol. Now for the good stuff!!

CD25(ovulation day) Strong cramps on the left side today and for the past few days, no other symptoms.

1dpo- Big temperature jump this morning, .70! CM is dry/sticky, cervix feels hard and closed and at a weird angle, loose stools, slight nausea (I always get loose stools and a little bit of nausea the day after O, nothing new for me. I assume its from the sudden spike in progesterone) Lower left back pain the evening. These signs tell me that I'm 1dpo.

2dpo- More loose stools, no other symptoms

3dpo- Nothing. Got my crosshairs on the Fertility Friend app today, ovulation confirmed!

4dpo- Nothing

5dpo- Another temp jump. I had bad dreams that was husband was having an affair. I NEVER remember my dreams upon waking and the only other time I had those nightmares was when I was pregnant with my daughter. This was my first inking that we may have caught it this month.

6dpo- TMI alert for this one; My cervix was VERY LOW. It felt almost like a uterine prolapse. It was not even a full fingertip into the vagina and the entrance felt swollen. It was honestly pretty alarming, but I remember having a very low cervix a few days before I got a BFP with my DD. This was the second sign that made me hopeful. I also had creamy EWCM. I always have this in the luteal phase, but this time it was slightly yellow. I *think* this was implantation day.

7dpo- Still had the same really low cervix and swollen feeling. More yellow tinted creamy EWCM

8dpo- Cervix is now back to normal and CM is drier. I took an Easy@home dipstick pregnancy test with FMU and it was stark white. I felt I was out, but reminded myself that it was still really early. No symptoms or signs other than feeling moody/weepy. I cried watching while Watching Moana.

9dpo- Faint positive with an Easy@home pregnancy test with FMU! It was sooooo light, but I knew any line within the time frame was probably a positive. Started getting excited. Tested with a Walmart First Signal test using the same urine and got a much more obvious line! I love these test! I now wonder if the First Signal one would have been positive yesterday. Still feeling moody, my husband commented that I was being short and rude with him. Oops..

10dpo- Darker lines on both brands of test. OMG, its real! I'm pregnant! My daughter is going to a big sister! Baby number 2 is on the way, due the end of December.

I'm now 18dpo (4w4d) and symptoms still aren't bad. Sore boobs every so often. My DD doesn't want to nurse anymore, either due to my milk drying up or a change in taste(does that happen this early on?) Lack of appetite, I only want Mexican food and buffalo chicken dip, but no real nausea yet. Still feeling moody and I have a complete lack of sex drive.

Keep cooking little one, we can't wait to meet you.

Congratulations and thanks for giving us all hope with your BFP tale! :-)

Let me share my symptoms from taht point. 8DPO: LIGHTNING CROTCH- holy crap. Happened while I was at work and stopped me in the middle of a sentence! Never had experienced this before. Started getting a warm feeling in my stomach- sorry I don't know how else to explain it (probably from progesterone) At this point, I knew I was pregnant. I just felt different. I took a FRER stark white BFN, which didn't even upset me because I knew it was wrong. 9DPO: Nothing in the am, tried to wait until 10DPO to test but caved in the afternoon and vvvv faint positive- was not remotely surprised. Full feeling in pelvic region and just feeling different. Very emotional, nauseous, tired and bloated later in the day. 10DPO: Tested with FRER- BFP, still emotional. 11DPO (today): Had to cut my workout short due to very mild cramping and fatigue. Since I'm not sure when exactly I O'd, my DPO timeline could be off by a couple days.
