Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP at 9DPO - hardly any symptoms
I'm so excited to share my BFP story after spending the last 6 months stalking these boards! I really didn't have too many major symptoms. I honestly felt more pregnant in other months when I got all my BFNs. Here is my story
1DPO- ovulation cramps on the right side (typical)
3DPO- very emotional, thinking I was never going to get pregnant
4DPO-6DPO- nothing to speak of
7DPO- temp drop (.2 degrees) started having persistent lower back pain on my right side
8DPO- another temp drop (.1 degree). Had to use a heating pad on and off throughout the day for back pain. Started noticing blue veins on my breasts and chest. Told myself I was being ridiculous. They were probably already there and I'd never noticed. Literally look at my boobs like 60 times throughout the day. Thank goodness for work-from-home days :)
9DPO- temp spike (.3 degrees) Crazy insomnia. Woke up at 2:30am and couldn't go back to sleep until nearly 5. Got up and peed and didn't think to test. Looked at my boobs some more. Blue veins were more prominent. Decided to torture myself and test with 3rd morning urine knowing it would be negative. After months and months of looking at stark white test sticks, I checked after 3 minutes expecting more of the same. But wait! Is that a line? Is it a shadow? Is it an evap? Am i nuts? i had already gotten rid of my pee cup and had to get to work so i couldn't test again. At work, I drank my usual protein shake for breakfast and felt super nauseous. Took over an hour to feel better. I waited until I got home that evening and decided to take another test. Afternoon pee with only a 90 minute hold showed a definite line. Very faint but there! Had to skip the margaritas that night when DH and I went out to dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant.
10DPO- more insomnia! Awake from 1:30ish-4am. Boobs feel a little sore. Another small temp spike (.1 degrees). Tested on FRER and BFP!!!
I'm now starting to feel the fatigue. Hard to stay awake during the day. I'm 4 weeks today and just oozing with excitement and joy. I told DH at 10 DPO and his reaction is one that I will never ever forget. Truly one of the best moments of my life. Praying for a healthy pregnancy- this baby is already so loved! Best of luck to all- sending babydust your way!
