BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP cycle #3

When OH and I decided to start trying for a baby, I reliased how little we knew about TTC. Then I found this site and couldn't go a day without checking out BFP stories. I found all your stories inspirational and helpful so I would like to do the same.

I used Ovia app to record my data, started using OPKs on cycle #2 and started taking bbt on cycle #3.

As I was certain cycle #2 was our month until AF arrived. I was concerned that I was not ovulating and not producing fertile mucus so on cycle #3 I went all out. I started taking Conception Pregnacare (previously took Original version); took evening primrose oil (my CM became watery before +OPK which never happened on my previous cycles but not seen ewcm) and took my bbts every morning.

Ovulated CD11- opk and bbt dip confirmed
DPO 1-2 sore nipples
3- sore nipples, flu/cold symptoms (suspected ovulation symptoms)
4-5 sore nipples, twinges on my left pelvis
6- dry skin, increasing amount of creamy cm
7-10 dull aches and pulling sensation on my lower abdomen
11- spotty, notices my temp creep up (possibly triphasic shift)
12-13 bloated, temp stayed elevated, spotty face and back, flu/cold symptoms (I started to suspect pregnancy, I read that OPKs could pick up hcg- both days positive). On dpo13 I bought a Poundland hpt and thought to have seen a shadow line, still not convinced.
14- temp highest it's ever been I was ready to take another hpt with FMU but before I took the test I noticed brown blood as I wiped. I was heartbroken!
I felt dizzy,body ached and had flu/cold like symptoms in work. I couldn't understand why my temp did not decrease and +OPKs on luteal phase. It must be implantation bleeding so I bought a Superdrug Value pack during lunchtime, it was BFP!!!
My OH suggested to do another test with a good hpt that same evening, First Response gave a very obvious BFP :) OH triple checked!

Just in time for the OH 30th birthday and now we face the dilemma of when to tell our peers, especially when we go on holiday with his family in 2 weeks time and I would have to refuse a glass of wine for the whole trip that will raise suspicion lol
