Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP ...I was shocked!

After 17 months of TTC, I finally got my BFP! It's been quite a journey with health problems, 5 rounds of Clomid, and both mine and DH jobs are stressful and on shift work. I have been going to acupuncture since May 2015. My acupuncturist specializes in women's health and infertility and I feel like without her help I wouldn't be writing this today! She was able to regulate my cycle, and help shift my hormones which were completely out of whack! She had many pictures of babies up on a board, and she said to me, " Your baby will be up there before you know it. I can help you!"

This past Monday I went to acupuncture as I normally do and I had said, "I know my period is coming. It's due in two day." I was down and even found myself crying during my treatment. Each visit she takes my pulse and that tells her a lot about what is going on in my body, she asked me if I had taken a pregnancy test yet. I hadn't. I was so tired of seeing those BFNs that I couldn't bring myself to do it. She encouraged me to take one the next morning. So of course, when I left there I was curious and knew that I was going home to test. I have like 63546548654 Wondfo test strips so I yank one out and go for it when I got home. Sure enough, there was a faint line! I dipped another strip and found another line so I frantically opened a FRER and got another positive! I couldn't believe it!

I told my husband that night by giving him a gift with the positive test and Baby booties! He turned the test over a couple of times and then looked up and said, " Are you pregnant?!" It was awesome!

As far as symptoms go...
I had EWCM for a week leading up to O. We BDd the 17th, 18th and 21st and O day was on the 20th.

1DPO- Pressure in lower tummy, vivid dreams
2DPO- Pressure in lower tummy, vivid dreams, Irritability
3-5 DPO- Congestion, fatigue
6DPO- Congestion, fatigue, headache
7DPO- Congestion, fatigue, headache, cramping, skin break out
8DPO-Pressure lower tummy,Congestion, headache,cramping, dizziness, skin breakout
9DPO- Drastic implantation dip on BBT- (this is when I thought for sure I was out) same symptoms as 8DPO + Bloated
10-11DPO - BLOATED, pressure lower tummy, congestion, headache(this thing will not go away) skin breakout, fatigue, nausea
12DPO- BFP

My beta came back positive and I'm now on Prometrium for the entire first trimester due to low progesterone.
Hope this helps anyone who is feeling discouraged and unsure. I can't tell you to relax, I didn't. I'm not going to say it will happen when it happens. I hate hearing that. But I will say it all happens in God's perfect timing. As frustrating as it is we just don't know the grand plan and the reasoning behind things but it WILL Happen!

Thanks for reading!
