Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP on 10 DPO :)
I didn't expect to be writing this so soon, but I am completely excited and happy to receive the
blessing of being able to post about my BFP :) I recorded each symptom in detail (and some details
may be TMI) I am 30, and DH is 35. We have a DS who is 6 and a DS who is 4. We started trying for
our third baby in Feb and didn't conceive, tried again in March and here we are...a BFP :)
I have cycles ranging between 25-27 days. I ovulated on March 28th (used an OPK and tested CM).
During ovulation and on the day before, I had CM with a brown tint. I knew that meant I was very
fertile. We BD'd on March 22, 26, 27 and 28th. I O'ed on the 28th.
The things I did to help in conceiving...I BD'd before and on the day of ovulation. We did it
missionary position (even though I think its boring..lol) but I made sure to use a vibrator (pocket
rocket kind, not one that inserts) and reach orgasm after he ejaculated. I think that is what made
this happen :)
Here are my TWW symptoms leading up to my BFP on 10 dpo :)
O Day: Lower Cramping, Sharp Twinges, EWCM w/Brown Tint
1DPO- Slight Cramping in lower stomach, Sharp Twinges on my lower left side. My CM was very wet
2DPO- Early morning lower stomach cramping, Nipples Sore, Hot flash, Slight Nausea off/on. My
CM was creamy with globs of white. Definitely unusual for me because it is usually dry after
ovulation. It never dried up again.
3DPO- Peeing more, Slight cramping, Very slight breast pain, Hard BM, Nausea off/on and getting
a bit more tired. My CM was like white lotion and a lot of it.
4DPO- Peeing during the night, 1am woke up with gas pain, Lower stomach cramping off/on, Tired,
Off/on sharp pain in right breast, Slight sore throat. My CM was creamy white and wet.
5DPO- Peeing during the night, Slight sore breasts, hungry, AF type cramps, Slight twinges in lower
stomach, Belly button pulling pain (very weird), Loose BM. My CM was creamy and white...
6DPO- Vaginal pain all day (it was like sharp twinges right in my vaginal area, so weird), Nausea,
Metallic taste in mouth, Peeing more, Lower cramps, Side breast tenderness off/on, Lower back
pain begins...and Heartburn.
7DPO- Falling asleep earlier (can't even make it through my favorite shows), Had a dream about
being pregnant, Random nausea throughout the day, Breasts achy, Nipples sore, Peeing more
urgently, Lower cramps, Heartburn, Off/on pulling burning pain around belly button again,
Increased smell. My CM was coming out in globs of white, very gross..lol
8DPO (Implantation day)- Weird Dreams, Cramping during the night, Sore gums in the morning,
Sore nipples, Lots of CM, Can't stand the taste of ranch dressing and I usually love it. Sharp twinges
of pain..no spotting but definitely implantation pain.
9DPO- Crampy (sort of like AF), Lower back ache, Nausea off and on, Hot, Slight sore nipples,
Lower ache in my stomach, Peeing more, Starving although I get nausea halfway during the meal.
I actually had to spit out food into a napkin at a restaurant because I literally couldn't swallow it
without throwing up. The back pain is more noticeable and my CM is very wet and white, and lots
10DPO- FMU tested and faint BFP. I was in shock. Crampy, pressure and fullness in lower stomach,
peeing more, more saliva, Lower back pain, Off/on nausea, tested again with afternoon urine and
another faint positive. Sharp breast pain continues...
11DPO- Tested FMU and dark BFP!! All symptoms continue...
Here I am now, today April 13th, and I am 4 weeks 0 days pregnant. I still have sore nipples and
slightly achy breasts, I am more tired and my CM is still white and creamy, sometimes wet. I need
to wear a panty liner because there is a lot of it. My lower back still aches especially if I sit for too
long, and the cramps are off/on, very mild. I am having mood swings and craving rice cakes with
chicken salad on them. I went to bed last night at 7pm, and slept until my oldest son had to get
up for kindergarten.
I don't have any morning sickness yet (other than off/on nausea which is slight) With my two
previous pregnancies I didn't get morning sickness until my 5/6 week, so that should be coming.
I never threw up with my morning sickness, but the nausea was absolutely ridiculous...lol :)
I feel fine right now other than the above, but nothing severe yet, however I am still early on in the
pregnancy. I am sure the miserable symptoms will start soon..lol Good luck to all of you and may
your BFP's come soon. :) Any questions you may have, I will gladly answer :)
