Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP by DPO 28years old
After relentlessly stalking these boards while TTC, I wanted to share my BFP story by DPO in hopes that it gives other future mamas some reassurance like it did for me! I stopped my birth control pills in December, and my husband and I just "let it be" for a few months... that's when i realized that getting pregnant can be much trickier than I ever realized. I feel very blessed that my journey was still so short, because even in my 6-7 months I was so very on edge with everything, but have faith!! I am happy to report that we conceived in June (I am currently 5 weeks 5 days)- with an expected due date of March 19th (not yet confirmed by OB). What I did differently for this month: #1- Tracked OPKs (second month doing this) #2- Tried to have sex every day leading to ovulation (ended up missing O day and the 1-2 days after because we were out of town) #3- Used Preseed (first month using this!) Used like a typical lube, did not do vaginal inserts #4- Did not pee or get up for about 10 minutes after (i usually pee right away) Now, for DPO symptoms: 1 DPO- mild cramps upon waking, went away 3 DPO- mild cramps in the morning and creamy/milky vaginal discharge 4 DPO- creamy/milky vaginal discharge 5 DPO- creamy/milky vaginal discharge 6 DPO- indigestion and upset stomach, creamy/milky vaginal discharge 7 DPO-creamy/milky vaginal discharge, headache (pretty mild, took Tylenol and went away), VERY irritable, armpit soreness 8 DPO-creamy/milky vaginal discharge 9 DPO-creamy/milky vaginal discharge, tested earlier than i knew i should (BFN on First Resp) 10 DPO-creamy/milky vaginal discharge, back aching, indigestion, and mild headache (Possible VVFL on cheapie HPT, didn't get excited about it) 11 DPO- yep, you guessed it-creamy/milky vaginal discharge ... this day i just KNEW something was different in my gut.. tested with Clear blue digital.. BFP "Pregnant" * The biggest sign for me was that i didn't dry up down there like i typically do after ovulation, i had consistent creamy/milky discharge every single day (no burning, pain, itching, etc)... i have never had this happen before, so that was my biggest clue i would say! GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL. IT IS POSSIBLE!!! Baby Dust!!
