Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP on 18 DPO

This is our second cycle TTC #1. Because we were in the initial phase of trying, I wasnt charting temps or checking exact dates when I ovulated. I have a regular 28 day cycle, so just decided to bd on all days in the week leading upto what should have been ovulation day. this must've been the longest two weeks of my life. felt many symptoms, but then I always doubted if my wishful thinking was making up symptoms for me in my head. 1DPO: dull pain deep inside near the hip. weak and shaky legs, extremely hungry, dinner smelt great but tasted off 2DPO: wet feeling. hungry and thirsty frequently. bowel movement more usual than normal. I usually go once in 2-3 days 3DPO: wet feeling, definitely bloated. gassy, burping frequently. a pulling feeling in lower abdomen when I stretched 4DPO: wet feeling, definitely bloated. gassy, burping frequently. stomach growling all the time. 5DPO: stomach growling. tired and sleepy. two pangs in left bb but lasted only a few seconds (not sure if its all in my head) 6DPO: tired and sleepy after yoga. hungry, not so much bloating. couple of secs of pricking feeling in bbs. feeling wet. mild pain in armpit and upper arm and low back 7DPO: woke up with a blocked and running nose. feeling feverish. slightly tired. vivid dreams 8DPO: woke up with a cold and dull back pain. metallic taste in my mouth after dinner, like i was chewing on a coin. 9DPO: all symptoms have disappeared :( still have the cold though 10DPO:feel like Im going to get AF soon 11DPO: BFN on FRER with fmu. cold suddenly better in the afternoon. gassy at night. bra feels very uncomfortable 12DPO: slight twinges in lower abdomen in the evening lasting for about ten seconds. extremely cloudy urine 13DPO: low back pain in sleep.BFN with $tree. definite bloating. stretching and pulling feeling in abdomen and low back in yoga 14DPO: All symptoms have disappeared. getting ready for AF tomo 15DPO: AF due today. no AF when i woke up! yay! BFN with $tree. had spotting in the afternoon a couple of times. nothing on my underwear, just on tp when I wiped. another BFN in evening with cvs 16DPO: no AF yet. BFN with fmu on FRER. one more spot in my underwear this time. had to literally take an effort to swallow my lunch. felt nauseted. no other symptoms 17DPO: no AF yet. this is the third day i'm late (and i usually never am late). BFN with fmu on $tree 18DPO: BFN on CBD with fmu. no AF yet. im now four days late and almost wishing for AF, so that I can atleast cry about it, and plan for the next cycle. BFP on smu with $tree. a faint line, but its definitely there. another BFP with FRER. All the best to all of you ttc. Hoping you all get your BFPs soon!

Thank you for sharing your step by step process. I am on 15DPO (although I am not totally sure when my surge was bc I had positive ovulation for 5 days) and got a BFN this morning. It's encouraging to see that you didn't get your postive until 18DPO. I am having a lot of the symptoms that you stated and elevated temp for the last week (when is when I started tracking that). I am frustrated today and it was encouraging to read your post, as well as other posts on here.

Thanks for sharing! 12dpo BFN for me. you give me hope that there is still time.
