Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

*~BFP on 11dpo with Wondfo, symptoms match up with AF exactly ~*

Hello everyone~

I've been TTC for 11 months. Next month we would have been going in for fertility tests if we didn't conceive this month.

Surprisingly, although I've tracked symptoms this last month more than any month before, this was the most normal and symptom-free month. I was pretty confident that I was out this month and I was fine with that. The *only* differences were that I got headrush several times after Ovulation. Also, I did feel more exhausted 5dpo - 9dpo than usual, but I was away from home for a week with coworkers, and I blamed the exhaustion on working for long amounts of time and being around so many people for so long.

Other months I've sworn 50 times I was pregnant when I wasn't, had the most pregnant symptoms ever and even convinced myself I was pregnant even after getting AF. It was all worse because my cycles are wildly irregular, and I felt like every month I was getting a new "pregnancy" symptom that I hadn't had before.

The only change this month in TTC was that I was using Wondfo OPKs to pinpoint Ovulation. I've previously tracked my CM, which also has helped. I also had a bunch of cheap Wondfo HPTs that I got with the OPKs. If it weren't for those cheap Wondfos, I probably would have still not known that I was pregnant (bc I don't like to spend money on expensive drug store HPTs especially if I think I'm out).

Here are symptoms by day:
CD17: creamy CM, dry rubbery CM at night, <1 min of aching on the r. side of my chest, Wondfo OPK: negative
CD 18: OPK positive, ewcm, BD!
CD19 (Ovulation Day): OPK still positive, ewcm, acid reflux, headrush, really high sex drive (this is why I think it was O day), BD!
1DPO: OPK still positive, woke up often at night, ewcm, BD!
2DPO: OPK negative, not much cm
3DPO: not much creamy cm
4DPO: not much cm throughout the day, but had one moment of a LOT of cm at once
5DPO: started off with high energy, end of day EXHAUSTED! small amount of creamy cm and headrush
6DPO: high energy, little bit of creamy cm
7DPO: dry cm except for a LOT of creamy cm at one moment, headrush, extremely exhausted (I blamed this on being on a work retreat for the last week--I'm usually not around so many people 24/7 for an entire week), did not want to be intimate bc tired
8DPO: dry cm except for a LOT of creamy cm at one moment, EXHAUSTED, cried (with happiness) when S-I-L told me she's preggo. Lol, I had no idea that I was too :P
9DPO: small amount of creamy cm, exhausted, took my first hpt and had BFN. wasn't expecting anything this cycle bc I felt very normal.
10DPO: feeling PMS-y, warned my DH that AF is coming, tender breasts (this is all normal for AF), bfn
11DPO: that morning, I had a dream that I got two very dark BFPs. I tested in the morning with Wondfo and had two faint positives, but I started distrusting Wondfo's, but was obsessing and researching it all day. no cm at all, totally normal to dry up before AF. high energy, breasts were aching. The only difference with breast achiness is that sometimes they were getting this poky feeling from the inside in an for a couple seconds, maybe 1-2 times a day. The areas of the pokiness changed every time. Nipples totally didn't hurt and still don't.
12DPO: Got BFP on Clearblue and FRER, and on two Wondfos!!! I would have never believed it if I didn't have the cheap tests to begin with, because I still feel so normal. Started getting AF like cramps. Told my DH and both in disbelief.
13DPO (today): AF like cramps. They are on and off throughout the day, just like before AF. It sometimes comes on when stretching awkwardly, just like with AF. So there's no difference. Still getting the occasional breast pokiness in certain areas.

Besides that, no other symptoms at all. No food aversions, no smell sensitivities, no nipple darkening, no itchiness, no burpiness/gassiness, no irritability... it's hard to believe that I have someone in there!
