Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives


3 months TTC, age 35

Just got my BFP this morning after having a bunch of symptoms for the past five days. I kept track
of every symptom using the "Pink Pad" App, which I totally recommend if you are TTC. This is the
first month I used it, and BAM! It calculated a different peak ovulation day than the various websites
I've been stalking. I'm going to post my symptoms below, as I know what it's like to be in the TWW
and seek out possible signs! :)

Ovulation day: To begin with, I actually felt my body ovulate this month. In the past, I had trouble
telling. Pink Pad App may have helped me notice as it picked the exact day.

1-6 DPO no symptoms
7 DPO: mild bloating, extra hungry, very mild nausea while getting ready for work
8 DPO: exact same as 7 dpo
9 DPO: BFN with FRER, but definite a.m. nausea, mild breast tenderness, bloating, mild cramps,
fatigue, cravings, extra hungry
10 DPO: mild bloating, increasing breast size and tenderness, nipples enlarging, definite a.m.
nausea with hot flashes, mild cramps, fatigue, super irritable at work, cravings, extra hungry
11 DPO: Same as 10 DPO, but all symptoms escalating -- especially moodiness (cried at work for a
couple minutes), heavy/tender breasts
12 DPO: BFP on FRER! The line came up right away and was just about as dark as the control line! :)

Coincidentally, I have my annual OBGYN visit scheduled for this Thursday. Now that is super convenient! :)
