Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP Finally - 3 Days After Missed Period!
So, I never realized the "two week wait" would be so difficult! It was the longest 2-3 weeks of my life! I had given up hope SO many times, and after 3 BFN's, thought I was out of the game. Then finally when I was 3 days late, and decided to take another, expecting to be disappointed again... NOPE! It was a BFP! I kept reading all the 10-14 DPO BFP experiences, and thought I had no chance this month... so this is a good story for those who don't get it right away! Can't believe it, this is our first month trying! Here are my wacky experiences:
Positive OPK on Feb 8th and noticed egg-white CM with brown tint (thought that was weird, normally it's clear). My DPO's may be off a day or so, because I feel like I ovulated 36-48 hours after the LH Surge...
Ovulation: In evening, I had an odd heat sensation (not painful) in my uterus area. Thought I was crazy and that my mind was making it happen
1 DPO - Light brown CM in panties and tissue
2 DPO - Medium brown CM on tissue, was "in the mood" all morning, lol.
4 DPO - Crampy feeling off and on - came and went in my pelvic area. Temporary mild pains in boobs (shooting pains, but not painful). Slight amount of clear CM
5 DPO - Egg-white CM, crampy & bloated feeling, increased hunger
6 DPO - Egg-white CM (thicker than day before)
8DPO - BFN - knew it was too soon, but tried anyhow
9 DPO - Dull cramps off and on
11 DPO - Boobs sore off and on. Dull cramping, more so in evening
12 DPO - Temporary lower back ache, more period-like cramps, no bb soreness except when press with thumbs
13 DPO - BFN AGAIN!
14 DPO - Nausea after eating, mostly in morning. Frequent trips to bathroom (may have been from coffee), lower back ache, slightly tender boobs, little bit gassy, and started breaking out a little (acne)
15 DPO - BFN AGAIN (now I am 1 day before my period is due). Light period-like cramps, sore lower back
16 DPO - Period due. Saw 1 little faintly light brown CM, boobs very tender (felt like I had worked out and had sore muscles) and some sharp pains in boobs. Little bit gassy. Very little cramping.
17 DPO - Period 1 day late, slight headache, chills, backache, sick to stomach, breasts very sore and tender again. NO sign of AF
18 DPO (Feb 28th) - Couldn't handle waiting any longer... took a test and BFP! Waited 3 more hours and took another test BFP!
