BFP Stories

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!!

A healthy pregnancy diet plan should include the adequate amounts of protein, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables which are essential for the health of you and your baby. Foods rich in folic acid and a folic acid supplement help decrease the risk of neural tube defects, particularly in early pregnancy. Begin taking a prenatal vitamin. Pre-natal vitamins with iron are often recommended, and you can buy these over the counter or get a prescription from your health care provider. Continue regular exercise, or begin doing some low-impact exercise. This can be as simple as regular walking or swimming. Even the savviest of women will face a huge change with motherhood looming in the future. Being a mother is a special and rewarding gift, but it does take some planning, preparation, and life changes. After having a positive pregnancy test and scheduling your initial prenatal care, you may want to begin to assess your situations to prepare for the future.
