Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
BFP on 14 DPO after BFN
I am a very impatient woman and this site helped me pass the time while waiting. This is my second pregnancy and we got pregnant on our third cycle. I used the fertility friend app and measured my temperatures and cm to help me pinpoint ovulation. Here is my day by day symptoms.
1 DPO: woke up with a surge of EWCM and did BD
1-2 DPO: headache and fatigue
3 DPO: bloating and cramps (very slight)
4 DPO: increased sex drive and another EWCM which made me think. What the hec? I later read that this can mean you ovulate more than one egg. We shall see! Did BD again.
6 DPO until now: here come the sore, tender and swollen breasts! Usually this only happens 5 days before my period so this is when I knew for sure I was pregnant. Would wake up and my breasts were like a size or two larger and heavier than normal.
Other symptoms: fatigue. Went to bed at 7:30 for no good reason on a Monday night at 7 DPO.
Off and on from about 6 DPO: Gassy, bloated, increased appetite, more backache than normal, and frequent urination.
Biggest thing for me was the breasts. There’s no way I could miss it. All of the other cycles my breasts were not nearly so different and it was too far from AF.
Also: I just felt pregnant. I just had an intuitive sense. I know this sounds a bit silly but it’s hard to describe. As a side note, I also was craving healthy food throughout the 2WW from 6 DPO on.
Tested in the middle of the night at 12 DPO and it was negative and I started to doubt myself for a moment and then realized that I need to test first thing in the morning and wait a bit. At 14 DPO it was positive with First response.
