Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP at CD51!
As my username suggests I am honestly in so much shock... I've been a stalker of this website for years but never actually thought I'd see the day I'd be writing a BFP post!! I still feel like im in a dream. We weren't TTC and I was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries a few years ago so I'm not sure when I ovulated (I thought I knew and it was right when our protection failed but each day AF didn't show my app kept pushing my O day further and further out to the days we were BDing unprotected. I came off the pill 3 months ago and we weren't using condoms when I was on the pill and since I came off it we haven't been that strict on using them. We moreso weren't using them when I thought I had already O'd (although with PCOS I guess I couldn't really know for sure). I had less symptoms this month but they were all totally unexpected ones. We BD'd CD's 13, 22, 38, 34 and 35. CD22 was the only one with protection but the protection failed. CD24 and 25 - I had a small amount of brown/pink spotting in my underwear which was really unusual - my cycles are usually around 33 - 35 days. I thought something was up at this point and was driving myself nuts researching what it had meant for other women. CD25 and 26 - Lower back ache CD28 to 31 - Soooooo badly bloated!!! Bloating is really common for me but this was something else. I had to walk out of work and sit in my car for a bit with my stockings pulled away from my stomach because my bloating made them so unbelievably tight! Around CD40 we BD using protection and afterwards there was a bit of blood on the end of the condom. Other than that I've had slight AF cramps on and off and Ive been somewhat bloated 24/7 after the extreme bloating but it isn't painful. Oh and I didn't note down when this happened but weeks ago all my tops started feeling too tight in the bust area (Ive been the same bra size ever since I first started wearing bras so the feeling of growing there is definitely a foreign one to me!) but I haven't noticed it anymore recently. I had BFNs - CD31, D42, CD44 Then had booked in a doctors appointment just to see if I could get some answers on why I still had no AF on CD51, I thought I would find out I had cysts or something... Ive had probably 2 previous AF cycles in the CD50s years ago (Ive been on the pill in the years in between) It was the mid cycle bleeding that made me think this could be different, but after all the stark white BFNs I didn't think it would be pregnancy. I was shocked when I got my clear as day BFP at the doctors at 6.30pm on CD51! I haven't had sore BBS or any nausea or anything... nausea kicked in today (CD52) now that I know Im pregnant but I think that's all mind over matter now that I know. I also feel a bit of pressure really low down in my abdomen. According to the last menstrual period theory I was 7 weeks and 1 day when I got my BFP (yesterday) and Im booked in for an ultrasound on Monday. Really wanting to buy the pregnancy test that tells you how far along you are but I feel like im too scared to push my luck... like maybe if I test again bub wont be there anymore! Its all still sinking in I think. Its definitely good to be able to talk to you ladies though, my boyfriend wasn't all that thrilled to hear the news (he's 22 and Im 23) and I wont be telling anyone else until the 3 month mark.
