Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP at Day 15 dpo
Hi all, I have really found these sites so helpful so thought I would share my story. I am mid 40's and have just found out I am pregnant. I got married earlier in the year and we have been TTC for about 5 months. I have been feeling very disheartened as I have had endometriosis and thought at my age nothing would ever come of things. I was even scheduled for a second laparoscopy in January 2015 to have any residual endometriosis removed, not only to help a possible pregnancy but because I was suffering greatly with my periods. I know it's early days but I really am hopeful that this BFP will remain a BFP and I shall test again tomorrow to be sure. This morning the line was faintly positive, but it was definitely there. Again this site helped me realise what to look for and that a line, however faint, means only thing. All I can say is that I have been eating a lot of broccoli! And lemon juice in the mornings and trying generally to eat well and keep active. Symptoms that I noticed up until now: I have noticed heartburn for the first time in my life (very mild, but enough to make me wonder). Gassy, but I wondered if that was due to the broccoli and/or supplements I've been taking (pregnacare). I also had an incredibly bad bout of cramps the week after ovulation, or around that time, to make me wonder if the endometriosis was playing its tricks again. As it happens, that must have been the good old implantation symptoms. Breasts hurt terribly for about 5 days and then suddenly subsided - ie today I have no pain, but they are full and I could have sworn I noticed three veins last night rather than the usual one which is usually always present before AF arrives. I have not had headaches or sickness or hunger, but I suppose it is much too early. Oh and dreams - very vivid and some nights I have hardly slept which has made me feel scratchy the next day. Cramps are there, occasionally severe enough for me to think that AF is definitely on its way, but so far no. I feel on top of the world, to think a little human is starting its course within me... I have found this site so useful because the 2WW can be daunting and bewildering, and with endometriosis especially you do wonder what on earth is going on. I was also suspicious because my BBT chart was triphasic this month and this morning my temp was even higher than it had been, meaning the oven is cooking.
